I leave in exactly 5 weeks. Eeeek! I want to look and feel great while I am there, so I am kicking myself in the butt a bit more. This week has been not enough working out, too much eating. Enough!!!!

Track every day!

Work out 4-5 times a week, no excuses!!!!

Be mindful, make good choices!

My work out plans for the next 5 weeks are as follows

- Mondays: Boxing
- Tuesdays: Muscle Max
- Wednesdays: Boxing then water walking
- Thursdays: Water walking/walking/jogging (knee dependant!)
- Saturdays: Boxing

Now, I need to go to work. Better be on time, gotta ask for my time off today!

    (1) I consider this an official reminder to get my bikini out of the drawer its in and hang it up where I can see it.

(2) I think its so much nicer to call it "on holiday" than "on vacation." Holiday sounds like you're out actively having the time of your life while vacation conjures images of burning beach bums.

(3) Go you! Kick your own butt and rock the beach!!!!!!

    Wow! I've got to admit -- and I've been meaning to post a blog about this -- my degree of fitness commitment is kinda flagging these days. I don't NOT want to work out, and I don't want to be LESS fit, obviously, but man, I am tired. Tired and worn out, and sad, and devoid of magic and sparkles and polkadots and unicorns. I remember when I truly lived to walk on that treadmill, and that's not the case anymore - now it's just a thing to do, like washing dishes and making the bed. If I ever thought I could wear a bikini in five weeks, maybe I could rev up my effort, but that is SOOOO not going to happen. Go you, though -- glad one of us is filled with motivation! emoticon

I don't have time for a life anymore!

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I swear, its true! I'm working 5 days a week, uni 2 days a week, a placement to prep for...oy! I'm struggling to find time to spark! My eating is suffering because I don't have time to shop! Too much relying on fast food!

My exercising is not suffering (much)! I am still going to the gym and pools as much as I can. I have had to temporarily drop my Monday night boxing class because my boss has decided that I can work Mondays. I don't finish in time to make it to any classes, so I haven't been going :( I am also working an extra long shift this Thursday, so I am loosing a workout day. I'll make up for it next week!

Workout plans for this week:

Monday - Off
Tuesday - Water walking for 1 hour
Wednesay - Muscle sculpt class and boxing class
Thursday - Off
Friday - Off
Saturday - Boxing class
Sunday Off

Fun plans for the week:

Tuesday - Dinner out and Danny Bhoy
Wednesday - My 5 year anniversary with my man. We are spending the whole day together :D Can't wait!

Thats all, for now. My head is cloudy thanks to this cold that my delightful boyfriend gave to me. Again. Ick!

    Congrat's on the anniversary.

You know, if you write out a grocery list and go into the supermarket, flying around getting ONLY what is on that list, you will find that you time shopping is much reduced. Perhaps you could do it immediately after an exercise class and do it once a week. Have some frozens on stand-by in the freezer for when you run out of fresh. Bulk cook stews/soups and containerize them in individual serves and have them in the freezer so that when you haven't got time, you have a quick "go to" health meal. I do this all the time and it really DOES save a lot of time and money. You get to take advantage of the specials, and it only takes one lot of cooking! I managed this while working 60-80 hours a week, PLUS having a home with 2 children and a husband to cook for. It REALLY DOES work :-)

Nothing has happened, so no blog!

Friday, May 13, 2011

I feel odd not blogging every day, let alone not blogging for 3 days! Nothing has really happened though!

I handed in 3 more assignments! Only 4 more to go for the semester! I am so relieved to have them all over and done with. WHEW!

I have been working too much, as usual. 5 days this week. And I'm part time!

I've been going to the gym and the pools regularly. Weight is still going up and down like a yo-yo. Silly scale!

Tonight the man and I are going out to a 24th in the city. Should be fun. A few drinks, some not so good for me food, a bit of time to relax.

And....thats all! Really not too interesting. I should be back to more regular blogging soon!
