BL All Challenge: Beat the sress

Sunday, December 16, 2012

Blogging about how I beat stress during the holidaya season.

I don't do a lot.
1} I make lists so I can keep straight and try not to forget anything.
2} I relax and watch the Christmas shows and there are a lot of them.
3} We're not digging in through the garage to get the decorations out. That's a stress so very little decorating.
We aren't doing a lot of buying and will be going to DH's cousin's house for dinner.

CoHP - Advance Occlumency

Sunday, December 16, 2012

We’re to write a blog to keep our memories from vanishing completely.

The memories I want to keep are the routines I went through back in 2009, when I was at my healthiest and skinniest.

I tracked and stayed in range. I had a set of exercise routines that I did each day. I did a lot more cardio.

Doesn’t sound like much, but it worked. Evidentially changes the metabolism. I had the skinniest thighs and butt I’d ever had.

Don’t let anyone tell you can’t lose weight or inches because you hit a certain age, because I was 60 years old then.

    Thanks for the boost! I have been feeling blah and blaming it on turning 43 soon. No more excuses!

    Well Court, I think you still look terrific! I know you're not where you want to be yet, but you still look awesome. Those daily workouts are also so much more important than just keeping us looking trim!

Making Out a New Workout Schedule

Tuesday, December 04, 2012

I used to have a schedule of arms/abs on Tue, Thu and Sat. On Mon, Wed and Fri I did legs and most days cardio. Since I can't do my regular arm routine...well I can with one arm, gotta keep it fit. LOL, I want to work out a new plan.

I have certain tapes I've worked out to and have incorporated some of their routines. Tamilee Webb, Margaret Richards, Buns of Steel, Joanie Greggains.

I thought maybe abs and what arms I can do on certain days and maybe some legs, ike squats and calves. I have been doing everyday abs, I could do as on stability ball on days and other days do my own routine or Tamilee's abs.

Other days I could do other leg parts like my Jake Machine for hip and thighs, booty kick, Tamilee hip......okay, I get hip and butt exercises mixed up. Isn't leg lift for hips?

So what parts do we exercise that needs to be put into a routine: abs, arms, inner/outer thighs, hips, rear {butt, bum, glutz, whatever}, calves.

Like to have your ideas.

CoHP - Where do I want to be a year from now.

Thursday, November 29, 2012

Decide where I want to be this time next year in my quest for a healthier me.

I’m pretty sure I’ve written this before and it fits for this challenge.

I want to be 98 lbs, slim hips and abs, toned legs and arm. Believe it or not, it made me feel taller.

I want to be able to say ‘NO’ to temptation…which didn’t work tonight. I want to eat more freggies. I want to fit into all my ‘small’ clothes.

I want my DH to agree to help up the weekly menus for our meals and stick to them.

I may add to this if I think of anything else.

    I agree that being slimmer makes you feel taller! When I'm thinner I feel like my arms and legs are longer emoticon .

Tried to highlight

Tuesday, November 27, 2012

I bought the little hat with the holes and used my auburn hair dye. I couldn't do the hair in the back so DH guided my hand to where the hole was. Her's not good at that kind of thing. I think he was afraid of hurting me with the tool.

Anyhow, I did get some streaks of auburn. Makes me miss the all over auburn.
I doubt that I will do it again. It was a chore pulling hair through those little holes. I only used the holes in the blue circle.

Thanks for all the advice.







It doesn't show a very good close up, sorry. Some places I had more hair pulled out than other places.

    I think it came out great, 1st time or not! That's how it's supposed to look! Live with it for awhile, then if you want the all over auburn again, color it all. :) Thanks for sharing, brave girl!!

    Court, looks terrific, I also like that it's not all over, the variation is not only interesting, but looks much more natural. And really, it's not that I'm all about the natural but I think you're adorable with the silver, it's much softer against your skin tone than the dark auburn. For myself I find that it's not just the hair that gets lighter with maturity, my complexion seems to get lighter as well.

Good job girl!

    Now see... that wasn't so bad for your 1st time round, Courti, and it's got a lot of variations so that if/when you ever do want to 'do' the dump, it's got a lot of different lo/med/hi-lights already *there* to work with. Brilliant not to keep everything even because that would make it look too fake.
