My hubby was due at work today at 5am! Yay! His early departure helped me get up and get over to the gym by 5am. That is a personal best arrival time! WOO HOO!
I rode the bike for 20 mins, doing intervals, which always give me a better workout - and then followed up with strength training for a while. I am super psyched that I got that squared away, and was able to stop to get gas on the way to work, and still get in early. (I'm also leaving early today and the early in will help the early out.)
I did chest press, shoulder press, triceps, seated row, and calf. I am slow to add more leg routines because I do not want to overdo it just yet. I will get there though and then I will be even closer to my goals as the legs have much larger muscle groups. More muscle = more burn. Woot. I'm on my way.
I still feel in the happy zone and I left the gym over an hour ago. This is good. It is nice to be out of the crankies. I will say that I did yawn for practically the whole time I was on the back. I guess my body was still adjusting to be awake. I have not done that before. ha ha.
Looking forward to a GREAT day with many positive moments. Wishing you all a beautiful day as well! Woo hoo! Happy Hump Day!

Been in a funk for the last couple of days. Just not feeling like myself - feeling sad over minuscule things - feeling out of sorts. I think maybe its hormonal, but I don't know. This is exactly how I derailed in the past. It was like the anti-spark. One discouraged day led to another and another, and I just threw in the towel. That's how you go from 70 lbs of fat loss to re-gaining, and for a long time, not caring.
I'm back to my swing. I started off the day with eating oatmeal and that will help carry me through a while. I have a lot of things I need to work on, but I also need to break them down into smaller chunks and stop trying to rebuild Rome in a day.
I am happy that I stopped dwelling on all that is wrong, and all that it seems like I can't fix. I have to accept that this lifestyle change will do the legwork for me if I let it, and to stop wishing for a magic wand to come in and "fix me." I'm not broken, I just need a little pruning. :)

This is my Friday mantra! Fridays bring out my inner conga dancer (Friday, Friday, Friday!) I DO love my job, but I love Fridays a bit more. :)
Been to the gym - to do a bit of cardio and mostly strength training. Psyched, it is all under my belt. I should be getting dressed for work right now, so I will write more later.
I did take the liberty of eating my bfast at home insstead of quaker oats in the car. ha ha. :)

Went for a walk - it cleared my head --- and gave me a much needed break from sitting at my desk. I'm happy I got my cardio in - but here is the really great part ---- I wanted to go for the walk. I had to postpone it for a couple of meetings, but I did get there.
I also stopped at a stationery store on the way back and bought a couple of pick-me-ups. I need to do this more often!! I love cards, and I enjoyed laughing at all of the silly messages in the store.
I love that I kept my promise to work out and I did it! WOO HOO!
