Well, about those goals...

Sunday, August 19, 2012

I am so sore and have huge blisters from running in my Fivefingers yesterday that I had to take a day off from working out... but it is the first time in ages that I have managed 6 days straight. I also am munchy today..

But if I can keep up with even 6 days per week of good eating and exercise, really I will be happy.
This past week proved to me that I still know now and can regain control when I need to. I think that is more what it's all about.

I got so intent on my spinning a new skein of beautiful yarn yesterday, I flat out forgot to blog. However that made my shoulders and arms very tired and sore... so Jillian is going by the wayside today too. 15 straight hours of carding wool and spinning it is sit-in-place stuff, but still works the arms. I still had a great calorie deficit last week and was down to 148.2 this morning.

The spirit of the goals is there, though, and I think they are serving as a reminder and guide. I still hope to complete my nearly 60 days shred!

    Way to go with your 6 day straight workout and everyone needs a break! Wow, as it is a life style change. Your body will defnietly let you know when it's time to relax and rest. Never let anything or anyone discourage you! Our upper body needs to work out as well! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I agree about the rest day, it's a good thing to rest those muscles after 6 days of working them out! Jillian can wait!

    Never got blisters from my 5 fingers, but they do make socks for them, maybe that would help? I used to get blisters in my hiking boots all the time until I switched to better socks.

    Are you planning on making something wonderful with the yarn?

    This is that rest day we are recommended to take, right? It sounds to me as if you have done plenty this week, and both need and deserve to take it easy for a day. Carding wool is no joke. That almost qualifies as "circuit training" all by itself.
