Long day, Fulfilling ending

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I had a long day at work today.... but when i got home, I hopped on my wii fit and exercised for 40 minutes. Tomorrow I am off, so I will certainly be doing more!!! I can't wait! I really like the free step (all the stepping exercises) Hula hoop really tires me out (but I love it!) Tried running today and my pace runner kept trying to push me away.... I was really bad at pacing myself to stay behind him... REALLY BAD! I guess practice will make perfect. I'm tired now. Gotta go to bed soon. YAAAAAAAAAWN.

Had to work today!

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Well, My assistant called out sick today -- so had to go to work. Bummer! That's ok, she is going to work my friday to make up for it. I'd much rather have Friday off -- It's busier and more work.. lol.

I set up my wii fit tonight... yayyyyyy. Not too happy with the BMI # -- but we are changing that!!! -- and I was rather surprised that my wii fit age was only 4 years more than my actual age. I'm 45 and it said I was 49. I thought it was going to tell me I was 60 or something.. so I was happy with that.

My balance in the beginning test was close to perfect... then I got into the balance exercises and totally blew it! I guess I can balance standing still, and not so much when actually moving.. lol.

Hula hoop, boxing and the stepping program were my favs!!! I will be wearing out those puppies for sure. Tried some of the other stuff and decided that 30 minutes setting up and 30 minutes with exercises was good for tonight... I'll bet I do a whole hour tomorrow.

Well, gotta be to work mega early tomorrow. Getting up at 4:30 am -- I need to get some things squared away before the owner shows up -- so I'm gonna leave home about 5:30 and get to work for 7ish -- that will give me about 1 1/2 hours to make everything perfecto!

My best to all..... and to all...... lol..... a good nite.

    Oh no, sorry you had to work but you're right, I'd rather have Friday off too.
Sounds like today will be a long day... be sure you do nice things for yourself as well as working so much. emoticon

Just an average day

Tuesday, January 26, 2010

Nothing much happened today. I ate healthy and got 8 hours of sleep last night but I am really tired right now. I am going to be setting up my wii fit tomorrow and hopefully I will get some satisfaction from that..... I just feel blaaaah today. My energy level is mediocre and I only got in 8500 steps today (thanks to that darn meeting, lol).

My dog was going nuts tonight. Every 2 minutes she wanted to go outside. It's COLD out there!!!! Doesn't she realize this? Doesn't she see that I do NOT have a fur coat on!!!! I love her to pieces, but sometimes she drives me nuts. Usually she will camp out right next to me and make me pat her until my arm falls off. Apparently THAT ritual was not good enough tonight... lol.

Well tomorrow is another day and since I keep yawning, I guess I am hitting the hay... Nite all.

Monday, Monday - Need I say more?

Monday, January 25, 2010

Gotta love Mondays. I kinda wish Mondays would disappear.. but then Tuesday would just take its place. lol.

Worked hard today... did dumbbell exercises in the car on the way to work... yeah, I sit in a lot of traffic. I did 4 different sets of 4 different exercises. What a way to get exercise in.

I found one!!!! I found a wii fit!!!! I paid for it online last night and will be picking it up at Best Buy tomorrow!!!! I can't wait, I hear sooo many great things about it... I am excited.

I missed my goal for the weekend, I only got 1/2 way there, I wanted to drop 2 lbs over Fri, Sat and Sunday --- only got 1. But hey, 1 is great!!! I didn't GAIN it and THAT is the important thing!!!

I can't wait for warmer weather so me and my Golden (Shelby) can go for long walks... I can't deal with the cold.. I hate it! Yeah, so why do I live in New England? Beats me. I keep telling hubby we should move to Florida to be closer to his folks, but he IS NOT biting!

I did over 12,000 steps today. WAHOOOO!!!! Thank goodness I work on my feet, otherwise I'd never get that many. Does that kind of walking around count as EXERCISE?

Do the veggies in a sandwich count as a serving?

AAAAAAhhhhh questions..... Many more to come.

Keep smiling Kids!

    You are too funny...
I saw "yes" to both your questions, the steps count and the veggies count, why not, right?
And congrats on the 1 lb. loss! Every little step counts!
Well done! emoticon

Sunday shopping was NOT good to ME!

Sunday, January 24, 2010

OK.. so i went out in search of a wii fit game -- no go -- no one had them, not even the store that had a website that said they had them in stock!! Bummer. Then, I went searching Barnes & Nobles for a light for my NOOK - and to no avail, they did not have any either, and they didn't expect to have any in the near future... the sales lady told me I'd be better off just ordering it online.

What a wasted day of running around doing nothing useful!

So, I came home, grabbed my NOOK and hit the bike. 20 minutes of riding and 4 chapters later I feel like I finally accomplished something today. emoticon

  Sounds like you handled the disapointment and frustration in an amazingly positive way. Good for you. Good luck in finding the WII Fit game. (showing my ignorance but what is a NOOK?)

    Awwww, I know it's frustrating but we have to look on the bright side, right? So instead of sitting today you were out walking and you saved money!! I'm sure eventually you will find the items you were shopping for, maybe even at a good deal!
