AAAAAUUUUUUGGGGHHHHH!!!

Thursday, December 10, 2009



That's how I feel about now...I had to cancel my session with Lonnie because I had to work late...I got home late and of course, had to take my dogs out so I'm not going to the gym now...

Unless I get on another marathon conference call at the end of the day like I did today, I will be at the gym tomorrow....a 2 1/2 hr call...utterly ridiculous but a necessary evil I guess since we got the job done....I just wanted to get back on track with the gym...all in due time I guess....

Oh well, I'm not going to fret to much about it...life happens!!!!

Anywho, I'm about to go eat and relax....ttyl!!

    Just count this as a break day and get right back on track tomorrow. Life certainly has a way of disturbing exercise, next time maybe you can get in a good walk at lunch or break time encase something happens like this again. You can say you got some type of activity in, or if no trip to the gym do a spark video at home. Keep up the good work of taking care of you, a spark friend sexysize_12 emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Life happens is certainly true but it sounds like you know how to keep going.

Hmmm...I'm thinking about it.....

Wednesday, December 09, 2009



I haven't written a "real" blog in a while..mainly because there isn't much new stuff to talk about...still going to Body Pump on Mon/Wed. and going to Lonnie on Tue/Thurs...nothing on interest there...

I hope Susan can get new choreography soon...she has to get her certification first and she sent the video in last week...the class size has shrunk mainly because we are doing the same routine and people are bored, which I can understand because I am bored myself but I love Susan and I do enjoy the class...the challenge now comes from us increasing our weight...

Lonnie has changed my routine...I never know what to expect from him which is a good thing..I need to get ready to pay him soon for more sessions but that won't be until January...I'm not sure how long I'll keep a trainer but he is really good and he and I have a great relationship, which helps out when I don't want to do something...he pushes me and my hour with him goes by pretty quickly....

So why do I feel like I need to do MORE?



Today in our breakroom, while I was making my oatmeal, I noticed a flier for a personal trainer that works at a gym about 2 mins away from my job...she is offering a bootcamp for $69....they are meeting for 3 days a week for 3 weeks...that's 9 sessions at 1 hr each for $69!!! Pretty good deal right? I thought so and that's why I emailed her to get more details...it's a holiday special...

I emailed her and asked her if it expired this month or if Jan. would be accepted and she said it would...I have no intention of starting a bootcamp right now but it could be a good "kick" to start 2010...I would have bootcamp early in the morning (which may be a problem in itself since getting up during the winter poses a problem for me now), then go to work, and then to the gym in the evening...

But is that too much? I mean, I don't HAVE to go to Body Pump on Mon/Wed. evenings so I could rest on those evening or do something light like cardio in the evenings...but even if I did that, would a bootcamp AND personal training be too much on my body? I don't think so but I'll think on it some more...I am meeting the trainer at the gym on Friday evening so I can see what the place looks like, etc...I will leave my debit card in the glove compartment of my car so I won't "sign" up while I am there...I learned that little trick when I was checking out gyms..their high pressure sales tactics can really do you in and if you have to "leave" to go get your wallet, you'll think about it and leave...LOL!!!!

Oh well, I think I'm becoming obsessed with this fitness thing...who would've thunk it?? LOL

Today's model is Janet...looking good girl!!!!!!!

    I love your tip with the wallet while looking for gyms. I should do that all the time lol. I dont think you are becoming obsessed with fitness, but I do think that if you have a problem waking up in the morning then the bootcamp is out of the question. Yes you can push yourself, but why do that if you have a great routine already. $69 is a great deal but put the money towards something else and maybe try the running or something. I guess I would only consider making the investment and not go to Body Pump until the routine changes.
Are you seeing results from your current routine? Thats another reason I would consider the change.

You are doing great. Alot better than me. Keep up the great work girlfriend.

I am tired tonight...thanks Lonnie....

Tuesday, December 08, 2009

HA...I know how that sounds but I worked out with Lonnie tonight...we did sprints on the treadmill, boxing and then lifted weights and I am tired right now...being "away" for a few days really does take a toll and I can't believe how use to the gym I had gotten...

I am about to shower and hit the bed....good night everyone!!

My plan for the week...

Monday, December 07, 2009



I am not going to the gym tonight...I just got back from the dentist and I am still dealing with this head cold so I think one more day of full rest will help...I was running around yesterday so I didn't get to rest like I wanted..and it was cold, rainy and blah yesterday (today as well) which doesn't help matters when you want to get over a cold....

I will fix me a nice dinner, get my stuff ready for work tomorrow(I was off today), and relax the rest of the evening and hit it tomorrow...my nice dinner won't be out of hand or anything..some baked or grilled chicken breast, brown rice and broccoli is the plan...

I got on the scale this morning and I am down 2 more lbs but I am not planning to update my tracker until Jan. 1...I may change my mind but that is the plan for now...

My fitness plan for this week is to workout Tues-Sat...I normally don't do Fri/Sat. but this seems to be a crunch month for me or something so I want to be able to say I'd really did all I could when the year comes to an end...I also plan to do the 100 a day "challenge" that my Sparkfriends, DrTamm and Gonabfit, are currently doing....I don't think having a head cold should mess that up!!!

Anywho, time to go cook and try to enjoy the rest of my off day!

I have no idea who this model is but I like her vixen pose...lol

Well what do I know???

Sunday, December 06, 2009

I went to workout with Lonnie yesterday and it was by far the worse workout I've had with him...we even ended the session after 20 minutes...why?? Because the head cold I thought I was over apparently hadn't fully left and I got dizzy and sick to my stomach...I mean it was BAD....

I ate oatmeal for breakfast and rested a little before going to the gym...when I got there I did my warm up on the treadmill..then when we got started Lonnie wanted to do cardio...sprints on the treadmill...and the treadmill we were on was DIRECTLY in the sun(all the others were full)...and although it has been cold out, a beaming sun right into the side of your face through the glass has a way of warming you up in a way that isn't nice and cozy...so after me STOPPING the sprints because I was not feeling it, we went upstairs and we tried to do some more strength training..that's when I had to go!!

Even Lonnie was fussing/mad at me for coming to the gym when I have a cold...I really think it was being in that sun that did me in because I had been doing fine up to that point..but anywho, I came home and rested...we'll try again next week...

Enjoy the rest of your evening...
