Quiet Weekend

Sunday, January 13, 2013

After the past week, it was good to have a quiet weekend. Other than going to my first painting class -- which was very interesting although we didn't touch paintbrush to canvas yet -- I pretty much rested. I think I was emotionally exhausted after the past week. I also talked to my ex and he was feeling better, after being seriously ill over the past two weeks.

Progress towards goals this month so far: I went over calorie goals once this week (although not by much) and I only did cardio 3 days rather than 4. Also missed a day of ST. But, did yoga once, made my calorie burning goals AND lost a pound! So, although not perfect, close enough to see results. So, I'm satisfied for now!

I ordered a book from called The New Women's Rules for Weighlifting (or something like that) and I'm thinking about doing some serious lifting. I really want to strengthen overall, after spending so many years focusing on cardio. So, we shall see!

So glad the weekend was so calm and hoping the coming week is too! (A girl can dream, right?)

Have a great week!

    I think weight lifting is great! I can't do heavy lifting anymore but when I was really into it I was lifting 495 lbs on the leg press machine.
    Lifting weights is a great for building bone density. The only weight I lift these days is my body weight while doing yoga. It's just as satisfying to me as pumping iron.
    Good for you for meeting most of your goals AND losing a pound!!

    so good for you to plan on the weight lifting.....I hate doing it but as we age it is so important.
    Will be interested to hear how your painting class goes. I really enjoyed mine.
    Have a terrific week.
