after the ball is over.....

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

Monday's weigh-in was better than I thought it would be, only a two pound gain....I say 'only' because I was really expecting it to be more.
I've altered my ticker accordingly.

We've had company and over the last week or so my eating sensibly gradually deteriorated.
Common sense went out the window and in came gay abandon!!
I suppose looking back I've done a lot of walking and I kept up with my exercises too so I wasn't all bad.
Anyway they've now left and arrived safely back home so I can take myself in hand again and I did enjoy having them.

I've been contemplating a Tae Bo workout after a friend recommended it.
I hadn't even heard of it so I 'googled' it and I can't decide if it's for me or not so I've been doing Coach Nicole's ten minute cardio jumpstart for the last couple of days.
It seemed a long ten minutes but I persevered and now I'm quite enjoying it.
Together with my five miles a day walking it should get my heart rate up.

I'm back on track and raring to go! emoticon

    Thankyou Kat, it sounds so sensible when you write it like that, as if I'd made a conscious decision...which I hadn't!
I'm a great believer in the old adage...'all work & no play makes Jack a dull boy' though the second part 'all play & no work makes Jack a mere toy' is apt too.
I suppose the trick is to get the balance right so I'm just going to be me! emoticon

    Good Morning my sweet friend! I know whereof you speak! I too, have taken myself to hand and I am glad I have two so I would be able to ......ROFL!

Seriously tho, I do believe that you have exactly the right approach! Celebrate your company, and enjoy them. Settle back into the overall daily Lifestyle after. I am proud of you!

    I might yet give it a go...

I try to walk every day, rain or shine but I have an arthritic knee & ankle so there are odd times it just won't let me....I can't get my hiking boots on! LOL
I have invested in some adjustable walking/hiking sandals which will be fine as long as it's not knee deep in snow!
If my flare-up is too bad i just walk/march barefoot indoors as much as I can. emoticon
