3 Baby Steps

Saturday, December 17, 2011

Day 5 of my turnaround. I did it and added little tiny weights - 6 oz cans of tomato paste. I also did 5 mins of the next phase, not knowing exactly when it is supposed to start.

Still sore from all the minutes I chalked up yesterday so I got a late start. I'll be working on routine over the next few weeks. Holidays are hard to start a routine, but it feels good knowing I'll be going into January with a head start.

My best news is hubby is on the plan! Not so structured - baby steps for him, too. He's doing breakfast now. - the meal shake and 1/2 of a southbeach muffin. He also didn't start his day with pop! It is so nice to have a live-in buddy! We can compare notes!

Thanks for your support! You all are important to me!

I am so happy!

    I love the idea of getting a head start on all the people who are starting on Jan !st. Many people indulge so much at Christmas time that they are behind when they want to start getting fit. I am so proud of you for your hard work! Keep up the good work!
Hugs,
Sarah

2 Week Turnaround

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

emoticon I just finished my 15 minute cardio walk. It's from Prevention, called the 2 Week Turnaround Cardio. I have warm buns, let me tell you! It feels so good to get my exercise done today! Not just the power walk, but another 15 mins of cardio to acheive the magic 30.

It's a short-term goal to start me on my exercise streak. Yeah!

Winter Days

Friday, December 02, 2011

(taken a couple of Decembers ago)

There's lots of frost icing the vehicles. It's sparkling in the moonlight. So beautiful. Wouldn't it be great to be able to ice skate in that tranquility?

Hubby and I have agreed on home-made gifts for CHRISTmas. I do beleive I'm going to ask him to help me build a little rink this year.

    I've been ice skating once or twice! Spent more time on my knees or my bohunkus!
But that is a beautifu; scene, and gliding into that serenity does sound appealing.
