Great workout at the gym on treadmill. It really helps to have the Olympic's on while working out. I had fun yesterday cleaning out my closet. I'm 16.5 pounds down and that is about two sizes down for me :) I'm almost half way to my goal. I did the BMI calculator on sparkpeople and I'm only 2 points away from healthy instead of over or obese. Very very good. Now, I'll like to tackle the middle of me. I loss weight all over but the most seems to come off my bottom half first. I'm pretty odd shaped right now. I can wear a 8-10 in jeans but still need Large or 14 tops. Well, it will all come around and it keeps me going :)

    Funny, I never have the urge to keep anything if it's too big. But I will hang on to things if they are too small :)

The Night

Friday, July 27, 2012

So, I worked at hospital tonight. Got home around midnight. Good night at work. Nothing I couldn't handle. Felt under control. I guess work helps my self esteem. Not eating after work. That's a hard one. Just seems like one should eat if they stay up past midnight. But it's ok

My children are 22 , 21, and 18. It doesn't seem to matter how old they are they still seem to need help :) As soon as I got to the gym today. I got a phone call right before stepping on treadmill ( I wouldn't have answered if I was already on it). It was my son (21), asking how to pay a bill and if I could do it for him since he was at work. Uh, no :) Then leaving the gym younger daughter (18) calling saying she left her name tag at home and needed it in ten mins. Could I get it and run it to her work. I got home, looked everywhere ( no name tag) then she called and said nevermind. Well, got the workout in but a little frustrating. I guess I solve too many problems in my family and they haven't learned to do it themselves. Hopefully if I'm not available they will learn. My workout helped relief the stress

Struggling with Excersie

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Well, I thought I was addicted to the gym. I was on the couch delaying my workout over and over again yesterday. I couldn't seem to get up. I was making excuse after excuse. It's my day off. I'm tried. I finally got sick of myself and walked out the door. I just walked out the door and looked for a hill. I have a road that goes up to a golf course close by my house. It was quite a hike. Little sketchy cause the road doesn't have a side for walking and cars ( not many) have to be careful and go around you. But I just headed up for 30 mins. Walked up to the golf course and stayed on road through it and ended up with a 60 min round trip walk/ hike/ run. I ran a bit on the way down since it was mostly down hill. A good adventure for a person not wanting to go to the gym. I earned my short rib for dinner :)

    There are certain times of the year I practically abandon the gym because it's too nice out to be pedaling/walking/stepping in place. Exercise is exercise and you probably got some Vitamin D too!

    Good job!

Exercise doesn't have to mean "going to the gym"! There are days that the LAST thing in the world I want to do is go to the gym, so I DON'T!

I find something else that sounds fun and DO IT!

Way to go on finding a way to get your activity for the day!
