Getting started....

Monday, November 28, 2011

So today was the typical Monday at work...boring...so I left early and went to the gym....

I was able to start working on my strength training and used the machines for my legs....I got in:

60 leg presses using 95 lb weights
48 standing calf raises using 30 lb weights
48 leg curls using 30 lb weights

I followed up with 30 mins on the treadmill...then I had to go run a couple of errands....I need to come up with a program because I don't think the app I have on my phone will work...it only uses free weights...I'm not there yet...lol

But still, I'm happy with my day...according to my HRM, I burned over 600 calories...I'll take it....lol

Hope you had a great day...

The home stretch....

Sunday, November 27, 2011

This isn't going to be a long blog about my goals for the rest of the year...no need in making goals IF I don't follow through....so that is my plan/goal....FOLLOW THRU....that means being present, consistent and steadfast in making something happen before 2011 ends....I still have time to accomplish a few things I'm sure, I just need to prioritize those things and FOLLOW THRU on them...

Sounds simple enough, right? lol

Anywho, this has been a peaceful weekend and I loved it...we had some serious fall weather come through with the rain and cold air and high winds but it really felt good and helped me relax all the more when I was at home....I will be pulling out the Xmas decorations next weekend and doing my apt...I put my wreath out on the door this morning....

Tis the season....

I hope you all had a great weekend....

Is it really starting over or just being inconsistent?

Friday, November 25, 2011

At what point would you stop saying you are being "inconsistent" and actually need to really "start over"? I've seen blogs (and have written a couple myself) where people say they are "starting over" with their fitness goals and it has me wondering what is the "fine line" between inconsistency and the need to start over? is it missing a couple of weeks worth of exercise? a month? or would you be starting over if your eating has been horrible and your exercise is nonexistent? OR is it at the point where you are finally in sync mentally and everything is in place? Just a curiosity thing....I know there isn't one answer to this....

Anywho, Thanksgiving 2011 is in the history books and I think I did rather well...of course I had some of everything but not a whole heaping plateful of it...lol....thankfully, with dressing, turkey, etc. once I eat it, I'm over it so I don't have to get my fill....my family isn't huge on that type of food and I'm sure for Xmas we will have some kind of Sunday meal and nix the turkey and dressing...

I did get up this morning and hit the gym...I did the treadmill and some ab work afterwards...afterwards, I did break down and hit a Black Friday sale but it was not the major stores like Walmart or Target...I went to Bath and Body and got their plug in air fresheners they had on sale...couldn't pass that up...those things are normally about $12 a pack....I like my house to smell good so it was a win-win.....I DO need to hit up a store later though because I am out of washing powder....seems like doing laundry is my second job...geesh

That's all for now....about to relax and watch some TV...I hope you all have a great day!

    Inconsistency and starting over is both ways of saying,"Damn, I'd better get my sh*t together before something worse happens"
Now we already know bad has occurred, so worse is the case at this point.

As far as the Black Friday sales: overrated!
I went to Target to get a specific gift after my workout. I'm good now. A sistah ain't fighting over stuff I have to pay for. What's the point in that? I might put up my dukes for some free gear nevertheless! emoticon
