Being Positive is a lot of work

Monday, January 14, 2013

Good Morning...

Friday night, James and I went to dinner and to the movies after my workout. We seen "This Is 40" which by the way was hilarious. emoticon Our date never ended until 2:30 am. I wish I didn't have to have him leave. He had a work at 6 in the morning.

Since I arrived so late from my date, I didn't wake up in time for Water Zumba emoticon. I barely made it to my counseling on time. That being said, I did clean and prepare one room that my best friend and her husband will be staying in. Tonight, I will be cleaning and preparing the boy's room. I went shopping on Sunday for toothbrushes, paste and things of that nature. emoticon

My current roommate is a little jealous that I prepared the room like it is the Hilton. I just told him its because I love her and like him! emoticon He will be leaving South Carolina but he won't be heading up with me to New York. He will be leaving next Thursday for Missouri. I am happy he is moving on but we can still be friends. emoticon

As for me, today will be the day I schedule my workouts for the week. emoticon I was going to get a alignment on Saturday because of time constrains that is now going to be on Tuesday, tentatively but no later than Thursday. emoticon Friday, I will be heading to New York and moving my best friend down here. I am so excited. I have been so blessed.

I am trying to remain as positive as possible with all the tragedy that is surrounding me. I lost another friend, Michael, this week to a head on car crash.

Update: My sister hasn't had the baby yet. Her due date is the 18th. The doctor told her that her daughter is 8 pounds. The ultrasound wasn't done because the tech was sick. Thursday is suppose to be another change to get an ultrasound.



Friday, January 11, 2013 son has an ear infection and a virus. He was up and down most of the night. I was 30 minutes later for work. My whole day seems to be off a bit. emoticon

I did manage to grab my gym bag this morning. So as much as I said I was going to the gym Saturday I will also be going tonight. Afterwards, I am going home and getting ready for my date with James. emoticon

The last time I seen him was on New Year's Day. We both have crazy busy schedules. I am not sure what we will be doing tonight. I just so happy to spend time with him. emoticon

Update: No baby... she is coming soon

    Congrats on not letting an outofcontrol morning derail your fitness plans! Somehow, having my gym bag with me makes me 100% more likely to get in my workout after work. It sort of sits there shaming me all day when I try to make up excuses for why I'm not working out.

Good Morning... well I have my routine now. The clinic went very well. I have a chart to keep track of my workouts. She said I need to weight lift 2-3 days a week as well as 4 days of cardio. Now, this weekend I will be scheduling my workouts. emoticon I do know that I am going on Saturday to WATER ZUMBA! emoticon

My friend, that I brought to the gym last Friday, is going with me on Monday. emoticon I think she might actually join my gym so we can do it together often.

Well I was up some of the night with my baby. He is sick. I am taking him to the doctor's this afternoon. I am just waiting for my boss to show up to get approval to leave early. emoticon

I am really happy I planned for two days of rest. My muscles need it and I don't want to get burnt out. I am happy with my progress so far! emoticon

Update: My sister has a doctor's appointment and an ultrasound today. emoticon

Success is my middle name!

Wednesday, January 09, 2013

I am sore from trying the hydro cycling class last night. I am kind of glad that I missed 30 minutes of the class. I was given the incorrect start time. I very much feel it in my muscles today. emoticon I will try the class again next week.

After class, I attempted the elliptical machine. emoticon I used to love the elliptical. We reconnected last night after 3 years. We didn't bond for long just 5 minutes. The love is still there. The next time the visit will be longer.

Last night, I meet a woman that wants to be my workout buddy. In the next few weeks, we will be trying out classes together. ACCOUNTABILITY!!! emoticon Exactly what I wanted and needed!!

Tonight, I am going to the Wellness Clinic. I will learn how to use some of the weight machines. emoticon At the end of the session I will also have a workout routine for the next 8 weeks. That is went the trainer wants to see some improvements in the fitness test I took on Monday.

After tonight, my body needs a rest. So the next time I will be working out is Saturday morning. This time I have the schedule right. emoticon WATER ZUMBA here I come!

I am getting excited. Every year since I started I have either lost or maintained my weight. For many years, I started slow building on top of what I learned the year before. Just one small baby step... a couple of steps more... nice steady pace! emoticon Which has worked very well might I add.

This year is different. The difference is I don't have a couple of hundred pounds to lose. I have a goal of 50 pounds. Then I will be in ONELANDER! emoticon I want this so bad I can taste it. Taste of Victory! I cannot wait to see the scale say 199.9! This is the year I do it.....


I can!

I want too!

I have too!

I am a success story!

I am a motivator!


Update: Still no baby emoticon
