Ok here we go...

Sunday, March 08, 2009

Ok tomorrow is the day... I am going back to the gym, my back feels good.

I have been doing exercises at home like the biggest looser work out, I did yoga, a dance aerobics trying to stretch out my back and it seemed like it helped.

Its going to be a quick work out at the gym in the morning I have to take my Mom to the Dr's by 9am then I have to get to work right after that because I have to do payroll for my staff so they will get paid.

I am hoping that I can get out of work by 4 and get home and enjoy a nice walk in the park with my puppies since it stays light out longer.

Well guys wish me luck on my first day back to the gym in over a week. Even though I have not been to the gym I have managed ( not the official weigh in) to loose 4 pounds.

I am drinking my water
still not eating enough calories every day
and I am moving, not the normal workouts but I'm moving.

Keep your fingers crossed
Wish me luck

    I am sure you will be fine at the gym tomorrow. You can do it. You are usually on the low impact bike anyway. Make sure you stretch in the sauna first!

Good luck!

Love ya!

Don't quit. You can do this. Just love yourself and don't listen to that INNER BRAT with all the negative self-talk. emoticon

:( :( It is a week today

Friday, March 06, 2009

Well today is a week since I have been to the gym. I am so bummed that I haven't been able to go. Yesterday I worked from home I wasn't feeling good due to the pain, it made my stomach upset and I was visiting the ladies room a little to frequent to be traveling.

Well even though I have not gone to the gym and have not been eating right (not enough calories) I still lost 4 more pounds. Now you know the minute I start putting food in my mouth those 4 pounds will be back LOL LOL.

My back is feeling better and so is my stomach, so I started off this morning with a lite breakfast. I was able to get out of bed with out a struggle.

I'm looking forward in getting back to the gym, I never thought you would here those words come out of my mouth.

Until tomorrow

Wish me luck! ! !

    You've really been having a tough time of it, Liss. Glad to hear you're doing better and ready to jump right back into the swing of things. Just don't overdo right off the bat. Wouldn't want you to reinjure your back.

Miss you!

Crappy Day

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

Hey everyone,

Today was not a good day for me. As you previous read I hurt my back over the weekend and have not been able to go to the gym. Today I had to sit in an all day meeting and I seemed to have gotten stiff from sitting so much. I was going to attempt to go to the gym after work but I was not feeling well. I did not eat much at all due to the pain making my stomach upset. Well I took some medicine and it felt better. I stretched a bit tonight and kept walking around because it made it feel better.

So I am going to take it easy one more day and see how I feel tomorrow night when I get home. I think I may go into the hot tub at the gym. Hopefully it will make it feel better.

I am adding my link to my flicker account so if you are interested you can check out a few of my pictures from the flower show at the Philadelphia Convention Center.


Enjoy guys

Wish me luck ! ! !

    You tripped over Harley or Lola?
Maybe you shouldn't be sneaking back into your own house late at night. Just kidding.
Hit the sauna at the gym when you stretch. Makes my muscles feel amazing.

Love ya!

    My big sister is an amazing photographer. (If only she was better at hurdling over black dogs in the middle of the night when her room is pitch black.)


I love you Lissa, don't slug me!

A very bad weekend

Tuesday, March 03, 2009

I had a tough weekend. The last I went to the gym was friday the 27th took saturday off to go to the NJ shore for an event for special olympics. I was going to go to the gym Sunday for my work out but I ended up hurting my back. I tripped over my black dog that I could not see. So I laid around most of Sunday. My sister was nice enough to rub some BENGAY on it and let me sleep on her water bed (its heated). Got up Monday morning and it was still very stiff but took the day off from work and went to the flower show with friends. (taking a lot of sitting breaks)

Even though I did not work out I still continued to eat within my calorie range, drink my water and stay positive that my back will feel better soon. I think I will give it one more day and try the gym wednesday night maybe thursday morning.

Well today is weigh in day and I got on the scale and I still lost weight even though I have not worked out since Friday.

So I'm going to start back at the gym
eat in my calorie range
drink plenty of water

Wish me luck ! ! !

    ouch! hope your back gets better ASAP!

but give yourself a (gentle) pat on the back for staying within your calorie range despite your physical set back. when i was sedentary after my surgery, i had a really hard time sticking to a low calorie diet because i was just so darn bored all of the time.

wishing you well,

    You are so tough! I'm so glad that you have stuck with it. I knew that scale was going to move for you sooner or later. Get yourself better. Proud of you big sister - Love ya!

    emoticon Weigh to go!!! How much did you lose?

I know you aren't feeling well and that makes sticking with this whole lifestyle change difficult, But you're doing GREAT! Just don't overdo when you get back to the gym. Don't re-injure yourself.

I have leftover chicken taco stew tonight. It sure was GOOD!

Miss you!

OMG I thought I was going to die!

Friday, February 27, 2009

Thursday night my sons girlfriend asks if we want to do a step class, we were like sure.

So Friday morning I did my first step class today. What was I thinking?? I have been working out at the gym for the last few weeks so I thought my endurance got a little better. HA HA HA wake up Melissa and smell the coffee.

First of all I did not realize it was an advance class, so I start the work out,step up, step down, step over switch legs BLAH BLAH BLAH... It was going good then she started to add these hops and twists and I was like (B) you make me do one more of those I am going to kill you HA HA .

Wait it gets better she has us start running, excuse me I don't run, well not yet. So while everyone else is running I keep moving to keep my heart rate up. I really busted a sweat (for me).

Ok the music stops and I think cool this class is over, NOT she tells us to get weights and she has us do all this kind of bending and squatting and lunges, crunches with weights OMG.

Well I survived the class and you know what? I really think I will take her class again.

I ate enough calories- I drank plenty of water and I exercised.

Tomorrow is an easy day
I am going to walk the board walk at the NJ shore eat healthy food and have some fun.

Back to the gym on Sunday

Wish me luck ! !

    You don't need luck! With your determination, nothing can stop you!

Myself, I think I'll pass on Sculpt and Scream class and stick with the yoga.

I'll be thinking about you guys down at the shore tomorrow. I hope you have a nice relaxing day.

Love ya!
