I have been really busy at work and find myself falling back to my old habit. Generally, I tend to get so absorbed in work that I neglect other areas of my life. The first to go is always fitness and I spend many hours sitting. However, I have finished my all so important work project and decided I wasn't going to let myself go and fall into a long period of inactivity. I was back on my bowflex today and did a 20 minute workout. I have stuck to my diet (mostly) so, hopefully, the next couple of weeks will show some results...fingers crossed.

Just had a tremendously busy week at work. I do a lot of writing on the computer for work, and just became chair logged all week. I got to the point where I actually had a soreness from sitting so long. So today I broke away and did my bowflex biceps and triceps routine and did a lot of extra houswork to get myself moving. I see the light at the end of my horrible work week and hope that now that the weekend looms, I'll be able to pay more attention to my fitness and weight loss goals.
I stuck to my diet all week, but i think that at my age, there is no room for sacrificing any part of my fitness routine. If I don't exercise, I simply don't see any improvement in my weight or body image. It's really hard road in my 50s and I'm still trying to get used to the idea that weight won't just fly off just because I've become serious about it. It is just SO much harder at this point in my life.
Anyhow, will keep on keeping on, because even if it doesn't get a lot better, at least I can keep from getting a lot worse.

I was really bummed out yesterday because I had an emergency project at work that had me bound to my computer most of the day. I didn't log in to Spark people, didn't participate in my challenge entries, didn't log my food intake, nor exercise. Today, I was equally as busy, but I decided I just wasn't going to go off track 2 days in a row. It's just too easy to give everything to work and leave little left behind for me. So I logged in, logged my menu for the day, walked the 20 feet to my bowflex and did a full lower body and abs workout. Now I'm back at my computer but I have the Superbowl on at the same time. I am really inspired by the dedication and heart that these two winning teams have, and it just didn't seem right, if I didn't take some time out to dedicate to my fitness because it really is so important to me.
Happy Superbowl Sunday to all you Spark People!!

Had another great, motivated day today and stayed on track with my diet and water intake. Finally got to try my salsa workout dvd and it was really great...all alone at home and dancing around to rhythmic salsa like a dancing fool. My companion was travelling today, so made dinner alone and really enjoyed being free to cook whatever I wanted. Made some mediterranean rice with mint, feta, tomatoes, and lima beans, and it was delicious. So I'm feeling really relaxed and happy since, with this blog, I have achieved all 9 daily points for February challenge.
