a good weekend

Sunday, February 07, 2010

The week was a bad one, and I am not sure why. I wasn't stressed about anything. I had bought some cookies and was constantly eating me - I think that started stressing me out, but I didn't stop until the bag was gone-5 days of eating cookies. Disgusting. But, not trying to beat myself up too much over it - I am back on track. Yesterday I went to the gym and today even though it was cold outside, the sun was shining brilliantly so I grabbed my music and headphones, went out onto the patio and danced and worked out there. It was invigorating. Then not long ago, I did a 20 minute session on my recumbant bike. Next weekend is the long weekend celebrating Family Day on Monday. 3 days without having to go to work-YAY!. Another gym stop for sure.

    Well it sounds like your back on track, put last week behind you and move on. Have good Family Day and have fun.

2: hopefully never to be seen again

Thursday, January 28, 2010

I weighed myself tonight. I don't do it regularly, and I was quite hesitant. But it was in my favour. I dropped two pounds since my last weight check roughly two weeks ago. Not much-but it is encouraging. I have been trying to get more movement going. Just imagine what I could do, if my tendonitis wasn't plaguing me and keeping me from working out more vigorously! I guess slow and steady may win the race.


Feel good day

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Well, this weekend is going differently then far. One moment at a time. I woke up and drove 30minutes to my gym. Seeing all the cars in the parking lot caused my anxiety levels to rise. But once inside, I could see that the ladies only side wasn't very busy. I worked out for roughly 45 minutes, then needed to leave as my tendonitis started aggravating my foot. It felt great to be back in the gym. I may go tomorrow, or just do things around the house and give my foot a day of ease. One thing though...I am defintiely going to try and get there at least once during the work week.


The Weekend Factor

Sunday, January 17, 2010

Weekends seem to be a bad time for me. I will work on that. I baked chocolate chip cookies - my 3 year old niece came over. Being 3 she didn't eat much, but even though I sent some home to her parents, I still ate what was in the house. I had my bag packed ready to drive 30 minutes to the gym, but stayed home instead, put in a dance cd and impact walked/jogged on the spot for 30 minutes. Then I went to town and bought one of those 10-minute solution DVD's. There are 5 different options, and it came with stretch bands. I did 2 of them tonight-arm and thighs. After the 1 one, it seemed short, so when I did the second one, I watched the clock. Yes, it was only a mere 10minutes-I can do that. Maybe i will buy another one in the future. Back to work tomorrow. I am going to aim for the gym this week. It will have to be in the morning because I have driven by a 4PM and it is a full parking lot then. Tomorrow is a chance of freezing rain, so I already changed my alarm clock and will get up and do something at home.

    I think the weekends are hard for many people including me. The key is to try to find opportunities to undo some of the damage, which you have already done by exercising at home. Also, you have began mentally preparing for the upcoming week. Keep up the good work!!

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.
