Today was the day! ! !

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

OK everyone today was official weigh in and I am proud to say I made the scale move, and I made it move 5 lbs.

As you all know me I had hurt my back over a week a go and I was not getting in the normal work outs at the gym. As my back was feeling better I started doing little workouts home off of demand.

It worked, OMG I can't believe it.

Now that I am back to the gym I am stepping it up a tad, trying new machines and taking different classes. My new obsession is my arms. I saw a trainer that had nice arms and I want mine to look like hers. So I am doing my normal circuit routine then bumping it up at bit on the arms. Anyone want to buy a ticket to the gun show LOL LOL emoticon

I am still battling the calorie issues I am not getting enough calories every day. I am trying new recipes from spark people, which gives me an idea of what the calories will be so I can better plan out my day.

I never thought I would utter these words "I Missed The Gym"

Well tomorrow is going to be a busy day, I am getting up early for the gym. when I say early I mean 6am, after a few hour workout, its a hike up the turnpike to one of my offices for a meeting. I am hoping to get home early enough so I can take a walk with my puppies. They are so much fun to take to the park. I bet alot of the people in the park laugh at us walking our dogs Harley goes straight, Lola goes left and Gabby "look something shinny' she goes every which way (inside joke)

OK everyone wish me luck, I'm about to kick my sisters butt again this week
LOL LOL Move over Dottie I'm going to be on that Harley before you.
emoticon BEEP BEEP

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!

:( :( 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,

    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!
