I have had better days at the gym

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

I got through my strengh workout today just fine, but it was hard for me to get through the cardio. Then I remembered I hadn't used my inhaler b/4 coming. My lung doc has told me to use it b/4 the gym because it gives a little extra boost.
I always remember my towel, water, club ID and cell phone, why can't I always remember the inhaler. That should be the most important thing.


Christmas parties/Doctor appointment

Monday, December 14, 2009

I had so much going on this weekend that I didn't make it to the gym and I really tried to watch what I ate. It was too hard to figure out the calories. The first party ('Sat. evening) it was all lasagne and Italian foods. Love them but not too much. I had mostly salad w/o any dressing. Did have about 1/2 - 3/4 C lasagne and a small amount of some macaroni with meat in it. I had water only and one appetizer that consisted of 2 cherry tomatos, (2) 1 inch sqs of cheese and a green olive. I probally did Ok on the calorie count. I had no dessert.
The party on Sunday afternoon was a wedding reception and it was all Mexican food and Chinese egg rolls. The egg rolls are to die for and yes I had 3. I had a small amount of beans and rice and 1 small soft shell toco with carne asada.
I had no wedding cake and this was easy because it had strawberries in it, and I am allergice so that was a no brainer.
This morning I had a doctors appointment and he congradulated me on going from 202 the last I saw him in mid Oct to 188.7 today. I will be seeing him at the end of Jan and hope to have lost another 10 pounds.


Rain, Rain and more rain

Friday, December 11, 2009

Made it the gym today. Got my strenght work in, took about 40 mins then did cardio. Have 2 parties this weekend so plan on going tomorrow morning and Sunday morning too. Very hard this time of year to not want to eat all the goodies.


Another Day of housework

Thursday, December 10, 2009

Boy I just don't like housework. It comes around everyweek at least and sometimes more often depending on how the weather is. With 2 dogs you know if it rains there will be muddy little paws prints entering the house, from the dog door in the laundry room, into the kitchen, into the entry way and then the living room. Oh well I love my dogs and would never leave them outside. They are house dogs, don't even own a dog house or cage. One sleeps on the couch and the other sleeps on the rug in my bedroom. emoticon


Bright cool sunny day/One month mark

Wednesday, December 09, 2009

Well did some family errands today and got to the gym a little late in the afternoon so cut 4 strenght training machines out. Did 65 mins of cardio so I am a happey camper. Today is the official 1 month mark and I am pretty happy with my weight lost of 11 lbs so far. I gave myself a until Dec 2010 to lose 60 lbs and I think I will beat my goal if I keep up the 1 -2 lbs a week lost. AT times it doesn't seem like much but when I think that there are 52 weeks in a year, 52 pds sounds fantastic! emoticon emoticon
