Today is the official 6th anniversary of my weight loss journey! I've had a difficult year, and lost some of my healthy habits, but I'm still here and have recommitted to this journey.

Thursday check-in

Thursday, July 14, 2011

Even though I'm totally dragging right now, I've stuck to my gym routine. Still on track for the week and will combine legs with back along with spin class in order to complete week two of the workout plan I'm currently using.

Tuesday and Wednesday are my baby-sitting days with the boys ( my grandsons-6 months and twenty-two months old), add in running to Philly to see my dad at the hospital and it equals massive tiredness!

Muddling through....definitely glad to be sticking to the gym routine...even if my muscles are complaining quite loudly today emoticon

Proud Monday

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Yesterday was a great accomplishment for me...after umpiring ten games over the weekend, I made myself get up and go to the gym! I did a great weight lifting workout that I did with little to no rest between exercises and used that as cardio. Since my knee was still swollen from umpiring, I didn't do spin class. I'm currently sitting in a hospital waiting room as my dad has hip replacement surgery. And had to leave at 6:30 to get here, so no gym this a.m. If I get home at a reasonable hour, I'm planning on going tonight. If I don't get there, it's not a big deal since I am currently doing a four day lift and will simply adjust...

Getting back to the gym changes my whole outlook on everything!

My oh my, it's been way too long!

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Too long since I actually spent anytime on SP! Obviously, I can find many an excuse, but, I've just chosen to be a slacker of late. Once our weekend tournaments begin, the downslide kicks in, the weekend takes so much out of me with 10 or more games over a two day period, that Monday's fatigue gives me a reason to skip gym time, which snowballs and snowballs, until an avalanche of failure has occurred. I'm back in the gym as of Thursday and Friday, and two days worth of softball games Sat and Sunday. It felt so great to get in my exercise and I'm always amazed that I skip this time. Between the softball and babysitting, I let things get away, but I know I can keep on track even with these blips.

It will never be easy, and I know this isn't the end of the world, because I also believe I have it within me to find my way back to fitness and healthy ways. Thank you to my Spark Friend Dolly6 for reminding me how important daily Spark contact is, to success in keeping weight off.....

So another week of lifting completed, and it was a very good week. Waking up different muscles that hadn't been targeted by the last workouts, plus trying a new piece of equipment--a rope climber machine--and in general mixing things up. Workouts this week were good, but for some reason my food has been an issue...sneaking tastes of things at night, feeling a little more hungry than usual. I know it's all in my control, but for some reason, I'm disregarding my inner voices....I'll get it back on track, hoping I don't wreck up my loss from last week (1 lb)..but I'll deal with it....the weekend looks to be challenging again, 4 games tomorrow, weather permitting, eating on the run, and dealing with hydration issues...I do well with food under these conditions, but the water worries me to a degree...the good news is I'll be moving all day long--starting at 9:00 and ending at 8:30 pm....
