Lazy Saturday

Saturday, May 15, 2010

Not really. I already did my 10 minute work out and 45 minutes on my Life Cycle. It just feels lazy because no one is putting pressure on me for anything today. I bought my plane ticket to go for a visit with my parents on Father's Day weekend. It will be sad to see all the damage in Nashville. They live in Lafayette and I fly into Nashville. I haven't been since Christmas. My Mom told me today that The Hard Rock had re-opened so that is a good sign. I am sure it will take some time to get back to normal there. I am going to run a few errands and then I am free to enjoy the weekend any way I see fit. I think I might take a walk later. My toe is still bugging me but I can limp along slowly and still get to take a nice walk with my husband. I now have five friends who have signed up with me now. It is fun to get the points plus it is some body I am around all the time in case I'm having a weak moment. Sometimes I need the support of the entire Spark People crowd partly because they are not people who I see all the time or even ever. Sometimes it works better to have a co-worker or close friend to be able to go to or have them call you out on something. It is nice to have the option though. All bases covered. I was a Girl Scout so I like to be prepared for all eventualities (at least most of them). Well I'm off to enjoy the rest of my weekend!!

Happy Friday morning !

Friday, May 14, 2010

I made to the end of another work week. Whew! Sometimes I wonder why I am so devoted. I am going to have a nice laid back weekend. The weather in ABQ is supposed to be high 70s/ low 80s and sunny. I think I will go for a walk or two this weekend. I have some errands to run tomorrow and that is the extent of my plans. I will do my Fit, Firm & Fired Up both days of course. I finished my second week this morning. I still find it to be perfect for me. I hate exercise and doing it in small doses seems to be best. At least with the Life Cycle I can have my laptop and distract myself while checking emails and doing my Spark Points. I lost again today so I know the importance of exercise and nutrition while trying to get to a healthy weight but that doesn't mean I will ever like to exercise. As long as I can keep coming up with reasons to talk myself into it I will be pleased as punch (or maybe a martini). Hope everyone has a great weekend!

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!
