    Good luck with your new job, it is normal to feel nervous and you will probably love your new job. Sorry you have had family issues, hope you still find time to keep fit and healthy even though you may not have the time to check in.
Keep in touch even if it is just to say Hi!

Yay Go Me!

Tuesday, July 14, 2009

I finally got out of the 200 range. I feel like celebrating. It felt like I was going to be there forever especially on days it seemed like I was fluctuating back and forth but persistence and consistency are good to have as friends.


One Day At A Time

Friday, June 19, 2009

It is amazing to me how it is so easy to encourage some one else but when it comes to our selves we struggle with it.

I have recently been going through this thing ( what ever you call it) where I feel anxious about my weight. I try not to think too far ahead cause it seems like I have sooo far to go but yet I know I am not where I once was and I had just encouraged someone else in this very area just a few days ago. So I guess it's time to take my own medicine.

    Take my own medicine.- We have all felt this way at one time or another so you are not alone.. This is a journey we all take where where need to practice what we preach.. And we also need strength from friends and family we draw strength from this kind of support..
So if you need me I will be here..
You have a great week..

What a work out

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

I decided when working out that I needed more room. We had took the one room in the basement and made it a game room which is where the wii fit is but also the computer and other stuff so I had took all the things I wasn't using and basically made the other room a storage room. After I got my stability ball I wanted more room so I got the bright idea that I would make a specific room for working out.

Boy! I didn't know what I had gotten myself into. The people that had this house before had kitchen cabinets in the room we made into a game room. My husband and I tore them out to make more room for the big tv and games.

so we took them in the room ( man I am using the word room alot) that I was using for storage. I had to figure out what to do with those and soooo much stuff to go through. Up and down the stairs for four days in a row. My hamstrings and glutes were so sore and needless to say my fibro was mad at me too but I got it done and now I have a work out room ( there's that word again) a tv just for dvds when I get some, plenty of room for my ball . I have to get some music in there but man what a work out and it's going to be worth it.


Stability Balls

Sunday, June 07, 2009

Just recently picked up a stability ball. I wasn't for sure if I was going to like it.
I have brought work out equipment before and end up hating it for some reason or other. I got on that thing and almost fell off (LOL) I wasn't ready for that but after a few tries and taking my time I am gettting the hang of it and love it.
I love doing stretches on it, it feels so good to stretch against something firm but yet soft at the same time. I can also do exercises now without worrying so much about my knees as I have fibromyalgia and it tends to get into my knee joints(very painful) but with the stability ball I can work around this problem.

So for those that are not sure whether to try one or not? Give it a go!

What a great work out emoticon

    I just bought one the other day from Walmart. Haven't taken it out of the package yet but plan to very soon! Thanks for the inspiration from the positive remarks about the ball.
