Left work early today

Thursday, January 21, 2010

I just couldn't handle it anymore. I was tired I was bored, and starting to get depressed. So I paged the boss and asked if I can go. When he replied it was a yes and I left.

Came home, got changed to go to the gym, and then helped my son clean his room. I didn't feel like cleaning his room but I wasn't about to discourage him when he's going to suggest that we clean it. After that, I went to the gym. Then I came home and made dinner.

Time for bed...almost. Catch you on the flip side.

    I'm also a little worried about your son "wanting" to clean his room. If that weird symptom persists, you might want to check into it, lol.

    Excuse me, your son wanted to clean his room? Is he sick? Wow, that would be a miracle in my family!!

I am glad that you got to get off early to help him with his room and then you still had the energy to get some exercise.

Great job!

  Good for you for taking some time for yourself. Some times that is all you need.

  You're a great mom. You could have turned down your son's desire to clean his room now - but you stayed home and helped him. Yeah, that is sort of hard to turn down, hehe. You could have let that discourage you from going to the gym and you went anyway!

Okay, so I didn't do it. :(

What can I say.? Mornings suck! I did not make it to the gym this morning. I'm so sorry to everyone who thought that I would make it. The good news is I did go tonight. I even tried a new machine. I did the rowing machine for 17 minutes. The first two minutes I didn't realize you could adjust the feet pads so my feet kept slipping off the pads. LOL! And guess what? Rowing is hard! I mean hard and I was on a steady surface. LOL!

I expect to be very sore tomorrow. At least I better be! I worked really hard and my muscles were aching before I got done. After the rowing machine I did do the elliptical for 30 minutes. I'm ready for bed. Goodnight!

    Why is it it never seems to be as difficult to actually get into a boat and row??? Yet rowing machines are instruments of torture. But then again I'd drather go on a 12 hour grueling hike than spend 20 mins on a treadmill, so maybe it's just me, lol.
I forgive myself when I don't get up in the morning as planned...as long as I go home and get it done after work. So I guess I'll forgive you too, friend emoticon

    LOL, sometimes I think that rowing machine is kinda like a punching bag: you can really put some muscle into and 'surge'. Of course, you have to catch your breath once in awhile. No biggie about not making it to the gym at 4 a.m., silly!

We are getting a ton of snow overnight. Started snowing at 10 p.m. and there is probably close to a foot out there right now and still coming down hard. They said we'd get snow for 12-16 hours! My upper body is getting a solid workout this week, and I haven't even been to the gym! Come join me - I have an extra shovel . . . .

  Good job on making it to the gym tonite!! I know it sounds kind of silly but sometimes I like being sore the day after a workout. It makes me feel like I'm accomplishing something!

No, really! I am gonna do it!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I'm going to the gym in the morning. That means getting up at 4 AM and I'm getting dressed and I'm heading to the gym. Mornings and I cannot get along so please check on me. I know that if somebody's going to check I have a better chance of going to the gym. I'm going. Nobody really. I'm going. No really!!

    Great! I know waking up that early will be a bear, but once you are at the gym,you will probably love it because you'll have your choice of equipment. :) I hate crowded gyms.
Good for you!!!
Plus, you will get the workout out of the way and you can focus on the rest of your day! If I didn't have Laila, I would do it too now that my gym is open 24 hrs.

    Sooooo????? Did you Go?????
My doctor suggested going to bed in my workout clothes if I wanted to get up and get moving in the morning. It would help solve the problem of being freezing in the morning....
But I somehow don't think that would thrill hubby one bit, lol.

Times, they are a'changin

Tuesday, January 19, 2010

I decided to changpent goals. It seems like every time I get close to goal i start eating way too much. So I'm changing my goal to Lose 3 pounds in one month. By allowing myself more calories I can eat what I want and not feel deprived. At least that's the theory. LOL!

Going to change my workout. I've been doing the elliptical pretty steadily for the last few months. I need to start strength training again, and I need to choose a different cardio workout. I need to do Jillian Michaels 30 day shred. And I need to try other cardio equipment at the gym. More precise and measurable goals to come.

    Sounds like a good plan! I do that sometimes too...eat too much just as I start to make some progress. It's like, Woo Hoo, time to celebrate! LOL.
Hope you are having a great day. Hugs.

    I LOVE the rowing machines at the gym! It definitely makes you huff and puff and gives a great upper-body workout! Good idea to shake things up.

    It's great that you are changing things up...great way to shock the body and stimulate the mind! Good for you! Now would you come here and shock me to get more active? I feel like a slug, though still look like me which could be better depending on the strength of your eyes!
