new weight lifting routine

Monday, February 01, 2010

So I decided rather than do a total body weight lifting routine three times a week I would rather focus on doing one group a day. I think it will be easier to stay focused during the workout knowing that today is just upper body, tomorrow is abs, next day lower, then repeat. I love weight lifting and want to start seeing more definition in my arms and abs for sure! Legs are going great with all the walking, running, squats and lunges I already do! Now I'm going to search for moves for all the groups so I can change up my routine.

who was that and who is this?

Saturday, January 23, 2010

Well I had a bit of spring fever today and decided to clean out my closet and dresser drawers. I found this really cute little pink backless, halter top. I decided to give it to my sister in law who is so tiny and petite, but before I did that I decided to try it on. I just saw that I have a what?, a sexy, muscled back? Here I have been so frustrated that I'm not seeing great definition in my abs or arms yet and I have had this amazing back!? And once I noticed my back I realized I also have collarbones! And no double chin! Where have I gone? So my butt is still big and my belly isn't shrinking so fast so what! Obviously it will happen! I just gotta keep plugging away! For anyone who is reading this take heart! Your body will change keep on keeping on!

an apology to myself

Saturday, September 26, 2009

Dear Kim,
I apologize for not thinking you are worth anything. I'm sorry for feeding you garbage, lies, and negative thoughts all the time. I'm sorry that I let other peoples opinions and problems get in the way of your happiness and success. Just because your spouse may not be happy with you does not mean you don't deserve what you have worked so hard for. You are worth every minute you spend exercising, you are worth every dime you spend on fruits and vegetables, you are worth the smaller clothes you have to buy every couple of months. You are smart, caring, and pretty. I will try not to take you for granted anymore. love, kim

You're worth every SECOND of the time you put in to getting yourself healthy and happy.Don't worry about what others think...when you know in your heart the truth ,what anyone else has to say or think doesn't matter at all.Set your eye on the goal and focus on that and everyone and everything else will fall into place behind you. We are all here for you! emoticon emoticon

Well today it is officially one week since having my tonsils removed and honestly I am shocked to be alive! Just when I thought I was a goner for sure this afternoon I perked up and although I still have a sore throat I am not sleeping for 20 hrs a day only waking to choke down pain meds. I would tell an adult that was considering a tonsillectomy no way! It is not worth it if I could change it I would keep my tonsils. The pain was so bad I wanted to die and the meds they give you choke and burn your throat. no way not worth it although I did lose 8 lbs so far and I'm still not on solids.

  I know what you mean when you say a tonsillectomy as an adult is rough. I got my tonsils out 3 years ago and it was the hardest surgery I ever had. It took a while to feel better, but looking back I can say I am glad that I did it because it is so nice not to have the horribly painful sore throats anymore. I hope you start feeling better soon and will be able to look on this as just a bad memory.

    Hopefully you'll feel better soon, if the meds still hurt to swallow ask for a liquid version.

Surgery pain is rotten.

I hate nature!

Saturday, August 22, 2009

Well my neighborhood is basically out in the middle of nowhere as most neighborhoods in Wyoming are. I figure the only time I have to workout today is early in am before hubby leaves so off I go at 5am to run. Well I get to the other side of my neighborhood and out from under the next streetlight steps the biggest buck deer I have ever seen! He is very interested in me and i turn around promptly and beat feet home expecting at any moment to be blindsided by those huge antlers! I know two things about deer. It is rutting season, they have attacked before! no thanks hope i can get back to sleep! emoticon

    Cute. I will remember this when I complain about living in the city. We have deer at the park but they are small and are used to having people around.

    I can't believe this!

I was talking to a friend of mine this morning. He said he was really wanting to exercise a little before his wife went off to work so he got up SUPER early and made his way down to his favorite starting point - a street lamp. As he started his walk from underneath the lamp, A HUMAN CAME RUNNING AT HIM FROM OUT OF THE DARKNESS!! Scared him to death!

I'm sure you both were equally startled. emoticon

Take care.
