I took my mom's personal training session yesterday because she couldn't go. Wow! I guess I never imagined that strength training can be so brutal! It wasn't too bad going through the exercises, but today it was hard to even wash my hair in the shower this morning! It's a good sore though, I know.
I am glad that I did it though. It makes a huge difference I know! I want to start up again with this and will have to do it on alternating days. It even hurts to sit to tinkle! TMI, I know!

My New Year's Resolution this year was not what it has been for the last 21 years, which was to lose weight. This year, I made my resolution to complete 12 5K's in 2008. I have done one so far, but I have been slacking. So, I am going to register for Saturday's 5K and the money is going to a organ donor support fund. I am excited because I think I will end up doing it all by myself. I don't have any friends or family going with me, but I think it will be more of an accomplishment for me when I complete it.
I don't usually run, I do walk them. Hopefully by the end of the year I will be able to run or jog the entire thing. This has been an interesting resolution and I want to make it one that I will stick to. I have the rest all planned out for the year. Plus, I will have extra t-shirts for the gym. It's kind of a win-win situation. If your in the Sourthern CA area and want to join me, shoot me a quick email. I would love to have a buddy with me!
I am going to the gym tonight for my Zumba class, but I am going to get there a little earlier so I can walk on the treadmill for 30 minutes to see if I hit that 3.5 mile mark. I think I will also do a little on the stationary bike as well.
Here is to a more fit 2008!

So I did great on exercise today. I din't want to go to the gym, but I went anyways and my class was one of the best workouts I have had in a long time! It was fun AND super challenging! I loved it and I think the endorphins kicked in because I was even in a better mood afterwards.
Eating...I didn't do so well on. I had a plan yesterday, but I had to go into the office at 645a this morning and it just threw a kink into my day. I ate the right things, just too much of it. My total cal intake today was at 2200. I should be below 1500 or so.
I am going for it again tomorrow. All I can do is take one day at a time and if I goof, get right back in the game. I cannot beat myself up anymore because it has taken a negative toll on my self esteem and that needs to change.
Here is to a healthier tomorrow!
(Let's hope the neighbors upstairs will stop moving furniture at 1051p on a Wednesday night so I can get some beauty sleep! (Who does that? Really? They have lived there for almost 2 years...can you rearrange another time? Seriously?!)

I'm sure you have been there before...I have been weighing myself every day, I habit I just cannot seem to shake. It actually makes me feel more in control. I have been from 210 to 206.5 this week up and down and up and down. Today I am at 207.5.
I have noticed something though. If I do not eat after 8p or so, I tend to drop weight quickly the next morning. If I eat anything, even if it is a salad, I go up. I am glad that I noticed this. Next week I am going to try to have my last meal before 8pm and see how it impacts my weight. I know in order to do that, I am going to have to TURN OFF THE TV! It is my weight gain accomplice! I do terribly when I sit in front of the TV. Go figure?!
Anyhow, off to another weekend. I have to work and get my house back in order. It will be one of those weekends for laundry, cleaning and work! I think I will take some time to sit out on the Marina though. We are supposed to have nice weather this weekend. About 90 degrees, since I am close to the coast, it will probably be high 70's low 80s. I still don't think I would survive out in the snow! I feel for you East Coasters!
Have a good one!
