Tuesday-I worked out

Tuesday, January 12, 2010

I completed a power walk dvd tonight. I am sweaty so it had some effect. I drank plenty of water too. I feel good-tired but good. My tendonitis in my foot isn't aching too terribly. I haven't made it back to the gym yet - I will in time. I miss the ellipticals and the treadmill. I know I can't run on it yet though. I am on my path once again. This time I visualize success. I wake up in the morning with the mantra, "WHAT DO YOU WANT?', and I immediately do ab crunches before leaving the bed. I know what I want. I want to be fit and strong. I will get there. The Biggest Loser episode is on tv now, so time to watch it and get some more tips.

I am finished using my achilles tendonitis as an excuse not to exercise. Granted I have been doing arm strength training while waiting for my foot to heel. It is better than it was a year ago, even two years ago, but I think it is something I will be living with for the rest of my life. Soooooooooooo that means-I need to get on with life and grin and bear it. I want to be not only thinner, but more important to me-physically fit and strong-not manly strong-female strong.
Some hopeful inducements to help me along this road are, a cruise vacation with my sister in May, and my cousins wedding in 2011. Plus, I turn 40 this year! I want the next 40 years to be FIT-ABULOUS.


Halloween Ruin 2009

Monday, November 02, 2009

Halloween really messed me up - yet again. We had no kids this year, excepts both my brothers children. I think the H1N1 is the fear, and rightly so. Which left me with ALL this chocolate, and I had absolutely no will power. I am disgusted with myself, but tonight when I get home from work, I am putting in a workout tape and working out my weight frustrations -one step closer to great health.


Slowly back on the Path to Health

Wednesday, June 10, 2009

I cannot believe I haven't posted a blog in over a year. Maybe it is because I haven't been getting my regular workouts, and therefore haven't been making use of the spark site as much. I finally believe my achilles tendonitis may be on the mend. It has been 4 days with only minor pain at points throughout the day. I almost cannot believe it. It is strange to not have pain in my foot and be prepared to cringe in agony with each step I take. I haven't been to the gym in 9 months because of it. The past couple weeks I have been slowly beginning to use my recumbant cycle at home. Depending on how the rest of the week goes, I may just venture to the gym this weekend, and put the foot to the real test. I certainly need to get back. I just am not motivated enough to do enough on my own, even with the foot limitation. There certainly are other things I could do as opposed to walking, running, and using the ellipticals to get fit. Maybe I just don't want it bad enough. Well, I do want it - my problem I think is I am just too lazy to go about it. I would rather be reading a good book - but even that I can do while working out. So it is NO excuse. Have a good day all!


Cruise over now what

Friday, May 30, 2008

I have been back two weeks now from my fun vacation with my sister. I took a week afterwards and didnt go to the gym. I returned this week. The first day was difficult. I mean, my motivation had been a great deal based on looking good for our holiday. Now I need a new motivation. I will be 40 in less than two years-where did that time go. I have decided to become fabulously fit at 40. Woooooooooooooohoooooooooooooo.
