Another good morning of exercise...so weird!

Thursday, May 13, 2010

I got up this morning and did my 10 minute workout and then 45 minutes on the bike. It is so weird. I am not a fan of exercise. I never have been. I an not a fan of getting up early either. I seem to be doing both now. I get up at 5:15 and do my exercises. This is some or of seismic shift or something. I don't understand it but I am going with it. I was down this morning on the scale so it is a good thing. I don't how long it will last but it is working for me currently so I am good. Maybe if I do it long enough it will be come even more than a habit. That would be handy. I like things to be simple and doable. So far this is. I just keep pluggin' along. I am going to measure this weekend and I think I will be down in inches too. My clothes are fitting loose and I can get into smaller sizes. What a problem to have....Below is one of my new outfits.

Updates and Defrags.....

Wednesday, May 12, 2010

I got up to find that all the computers in my life (the 4 PCs not the 2 MACs) upgraded last night, both at home and at work. Reasonably painless until you consider the switch I use to run them on the same monitors reads the monitors as generic so I have to re-arrange my desktop each time it is upgraded overnight. Since I was already doing that sort of thing I decided to defrag also. I try to do it monthly because I love a fast computer. I actually think to do it about quarterly. While I'm waiting for it to finish I was thinking it was a lot like Spark People. You get to start over each day with a clean, fast slate. You can defrag (rearrange) everything anytime you want. You can decide what works for you and what doesn't. Everything is in one convenient place. It is nice and organized and expedites the keeping of a log and puts a ton of info and support right at your finger tips. I have always known I hold myself more accountable when I record everything so I can review it. It has been a pain sometimes but with Spark People it is all in one place and you can put as much into it as you need to to be successful. Cool....huh?

Slow and Steady as She Goes!

Tuesday, May 11, 2010

Well, I'm still on track with the Firm, Fit & Fired Up. I did Love Your hips, Glutes & Thighs this morning. I can't imagine that I will ever love those areas. This was the day that made me most sore so far last week. We will see how it goes today. I seem to be in the sweet spot of my routine. It isn't too hard or too annoying so I am able to do it every day without too much trouble. I am just letting one day roll into the next (like I could stop it) and the next, and so on. It can't always be exciting. I wouldn't really want it to be. Slow and steady is the smartest way to go. You don't have the great highs but no awful lows either. Of course it will be quite the high when I finally hit 142. Can you say shopping????

    I don't love those areas either! Shopping at 142, yeah! I could go shopping at 125 (12 pounds away)...great incentive! Keep it up!

Monday, Monday, so good to me (& my new bra)!

Monday, May 10, 2010

Here I am at another Monday morning. The weekend flew by. I don't know how it can go so fast. I had a good weekend. I stuck with my plan and went shopping. I got a new bra. I had myself measured. The lady asked me a few question and brought 2 bras in for me to try. I tried on the first one and it is perfect. I am going to use the staff next time I need one. My husband was with me. I had told him that I would pick out five to try and if none of those worked, I would come back one day this week. He looked at me and asked, "How many do you normally try on?" I thought about it and told him 20-ish. I hate bra shopping. My old bra looks like it has been through some sort of war. I have worn it completely out. The reason I was looking for one was all the girls at work were going to chip in and get me one if I didn't. Lets just say gravity was having a greater effect on me that it should. At any rate when I tried the new one on it was fantastic. Even my husband commented on the difference. I definitely suggest asking the sales staff for help. Just the 2-3 questions she asked me sent her toward the style and brand I needed. That is something I had not even considered before. The girls are happy and well supported. The right foundation can make all the difference and not just in construction or education!!

    When I had the grueling physical at the end of March 2010 my nurse told me she noticed a bra line....Duh, because I had been wearing a bra I told her. She then told me I shouldn't have the line and that it wasn't the right size. "I've worn it for years and it's comfortable", I blubbered.. She told me to go into a store and ask a sales lady to help me fine the right bra..........

Question-I am embarrassed to ask someone...is it embarrassing?

Glad you found a new supportive partner for the girls!

Goodbye Weekend...I hardly knew you.

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Funny how quickly the weekend disappears. It seems like it was just getting started yesterday. Oh, it was just getting started yesterday. Well I didn't get everything done I wanted to but I did exercise and stick to my eating plan. I can't seem to get too excited about cleaning out the closets. I have to but I start and then a few minutes later find a reason not to finish. I have done that 3 times now. It is not like me. I am restless right now though. I am not sure why. I know we will be moving in the not too distant future but I don't know where or when. That seems to have me in neutral when it comes to things like cleaning out the garage and the closets. At least it is good motivation for a healthy lifestyle. I am going to donate all of my "fat clothes" because I am not going back down that road. I have always had the tools deep down to stay off that path but they weren't readily available. Now I am more organized, older (maybe wiser) and realizing that I have spent a long time waiting for weight (wait) loss. I don't want to wait any longer. It is my time to go, go, go!

    Good for you for sticking with your exercise and eating plans! The closet clean out will get done and hopefully you have a good consignment shop in your town so you can trade in your clothes!

It will still be there waiting for you when you get back around to it and it will all get done in time for your move! It always does some how!! : )
