    Great advice, as usual, from Kim. Just remember, the more you work out, the more energy you will's a vicious cycle!

    Need motivation? I'm all over it....

PIck a want to look great in a bikini this summer? Go to your calendar right now and pick the date. Very specific. Circle it, post it around your house on stickies...whatever reminds you of your goal.

Making time to workout is not easy, especially with a busy work schedule. Remember that it's not about the quanity of exercise but the quality! Stick with short, intense cardio sessions (HIIT, 20 minutes, 3 times a week), and weight train a little heavier to kick your metabolism into high gear! Take the advice of your trainer...I know he's got the motivation you need.

I'm rooting for you!!

Falling off the wagon

I had pop tarts today and a Sprite! It is totally not on my "new and improved" diet. I will not beat myself up! I will keep on trucking! I! I will survive! Oh as long as I know how to love, I know I'll stay alive. Sorry. Had to sing there to keep my spirits up!! hehe


For ladies...

Ugh! How do you get motivated when Aunt Flo visits?? I want to curl up with a gallon of ice cream and cry! Just kidding, but I do not feel like working out!! I have a dinner to go to tonight so I will have to skip it :(

I already feel crappy and skipping my work out will make me feel crappier. I foresee some crunches and ab work in my immediate future so I don't feel like a total lard.

  I can totally relate. Why not just go for a walk around the neighborhood? Get some fresh air :) and you will feel so much better! If you're not in the mood to do anything cardio, I think walking is always better than nothing at all! Try one walk around the block, then two...onece you're out there, you'll be glad you did it! Stay motivated girl!!

Motivation time!

I am still sick from allergies! I have had about 10 hours of sleep and tried everything. Any home remedy or medication. Even those disgusting neti pots where you flush it all out of your nose with saline solution. Yick! Reminds me of Dwight Schroot on "The Office". Anyway, I am still coughing up a storm, too. Yowie! Maybe I will have cut abs after all of this coughing.

However, I am planning a bike ride later. If the weather holds up I plan on doing an hour of up and downhill cycling. Right now it looks like it may rain, so my back up plan is to go to the gym and do the good old elliptical.

  Don't Mock the Netti Pot! It works! I live in Austin, too (this is Debbie on the Doxie group)

I made it to the gym and only had to go blow my nose about 300 times. I loathe cedar or whatever the hell is in the air right now. I am so happy that I went, though. My trainer is super cool and helps make the time go by fast.

Today we did the following-
One billion lunges
One billion lunges with weights
One bajillion push-ups
Two kajillion step-ups with weights
A little stretching

I am slightly exaggerating, in case you couldn't tell. It was seriously hellacious, though. I like to do lazy, fat girl work outs like sitting on the stationary bike for 30 minutes while watching reality shows OR doing 10 reps of weights then resting for a minute, texting someone, drinking some water...rinse and repeat.

Oh, how my chunky butt will ache tomorrow!
