Work interferes

Wednesday, December 26, 2012

Work is interfering with my workout today. My job is extremely physical today, so I am not working out, just working. I am burning calories though. I am considering this a strength training day.

Biked 3 miles in 18 minutes~just could not resist real exercise!

    Even though the work doesn't fit in the fitness tracker, you know it is doing you good. The added biking was a boost to what you've already done today. emoticon

    Sounds like you should consider work your workout! I have to remind myself to get up and move at my job, so that is never an option for me. Take care!

I once was addicted to exercising. I think it might happen again. But it is a good addiction.

Today I:

walked 1 mile
5 minutes of 3 lb weight arm exercises
50 jumping jacks
10 minute jump rope cardio work oThe last one was really hard, really had my heart pounding!

for a total of 38 minutes.

    Too much of anything can be bad for us, but there is so much that is good about exercise that I agree it is generally a very positive addiction. Sounds like you had a good workout today!

I am motivated

Tuesday, December 25, 2012

Today I felt the spark!

Thanks to all that commented on my previous blog. It helps to know there is someone out there that cares.

My heel still feels good. I like to exercise, it helps relieve stress and depression. But, sometimes I get lazy and just give up. I had previously had a 50 lb. weight loss. I have gained about 16 lbs. back. But this year, well, I just might be different. Now that I know the Mayan prediction is not coming true, lol!

I have been battling the same 5 lbs for 2 years. This year WILL be different! I will exercise, but this year I will watch what I eat. I hadn't done that in a while. I love to exercise, but I also love to eat. I just have to commit myself to dieting. Anyway, here is what I did today:

walked 1.5 miles
jumproped 100X
jumping jacks 50

This takes about 30 minutes a day, I think I can do this everyday. With maybe one day off to recover. I don't think I can, I WILL do it. I know you all are watching, so that helps me to be accountable.

My future blogs might just be what I did for a workout. I did this on FB for a month and it really helped. But, I want to do this on SparkPeople.

Merry Christmas, be safe and hugs to you all! emoticon

New goal set today in honor of my son

Sunday, December 23, 2012

Today would have been my sons 28th birthday. He was killed in a highway accident. He was only 18, soon to be 19. He was going to be a good man. We still miss him everyday. He is forever loved and never forgotten. It is a hard season to lose a loved one. So for about 3 weeks, I kind of lost control of the whole diet and exercise thing. I indulged in goodies, that I would not have normally. I gained weight.

Well, I got a grip today. In honor of my son, I started walking again. My excuse was my Achilles heel. I guess my heel healed, so back to walking. I promise not to overdo it. I tend to burn out or get injured. I am taped up and braced up and ready to go. So slow and easy I go.

Merry Christmas, hug your loved ones tightly.

Today I walked 1 mile
Recumbent biked 1.70 miles
Total minutes: 32 minutes

    Hi. I have been meaning to stop by your page and thank you for your comments on my blog. I am so sorry for your loss of your son. I can't even imagine how painful that is and what challenges the anniversary presents for you. I am glad to hear you are recommitting to walking. Wishing you a peaceful Christmas and a healthy 2013!

    Those memories can be so powerful -- hopefully at other times you can remember him with a smile. I'm so very sad for you. I'm sure after 10 years the wound is still very tender and much of it seems like just yesterday. Know you are in my thoughts today as I pray for God to keep His arms around you and your family.

    I am really sorry to hear about your son. I saw an accident today when I was going to work. There was a guy who also lost his life in that accident . It is always remembering when we lose love ones and specially around festivals. I wish you get over it and also you feel better.
