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.

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.
