That's the best word for now. I've got another week before the movers come, but the house is 75% packed. There is just still a bunch of clutter. And, I've got to get it de-cluttered so the realtor can make it presentable and hopefully start show... Read more
Well, it's been awhile. I have one session left with the personal trainer. I don't think I lost weight since embarking on this, but I have gained mobility and then the Saturday classes helped me get back some flexibility. Maybe the weights as w... Read more
Post Challenge - Keeping on
Thanks for the comments last week. I am excited about the new job and the new city and even a new place to live. I love my house, but I'm very much looking forward to downsizing and condo living. I think sometimes we think what we think we're su... Read more
Challenge - Complete
I can't believe it's been a month since my last blog post. The Challenge officially ended a couple of weeks ago, but somehow, I had sessions left over. My last session will be this Tuesday. So, I need to figure out what I'm going to do next. I ... Read more
Challenge - Week 11
I can't believe there is just one more week to the challenge! Because I get two days off for Spring Break, I was able to do an extra workout this week. The trainer couldn't make our regular Tuesday, so I wound up going Wednesday night and Thur... Read more
Challenge - Week 10
Well, this was the supposed to be the first week of pairing down to two days with the trainer. Thanks to allergies, which I'm blaming on the weather, by the time the end of the week rolled around, I was a zombie. Which means, only one weight s... Read more
Challenge - Week 9
I can't believe Week 9 has ended. Among the exercises we did this week, we did the kettlebell one that killed my hamstrings the last time. In fact, they were still feeling the effects. Fortunately, it seemed to helped. They are not tight aga... Read more
Challenge - Week 8
I can't believe I'm over half done with the challenge. Just four more weeks! This coming week is my last week of three sessions with the trainer. After that, it will go to two. This is one of the best things I've done, but for budget reasons... Read more
Challenge - Weeks 6 & 7
I missed last week! But, not because I stopped working out. I took a short trip out of town and had a boat load of stuff to do before I left. So, I'm combing the two weeks. I'm starting to see results. I'm not sure I've lost weight, but two... Read more
Challenge - Week 5
It's hard for me to believe that I'm now five weeks into the challenge. I graduated this week from flexibility to endurance. Holy moly. Good, though. Tuesday was the first day and through the various exercises I wound up doing over 100 squat... Read more
Challenge - Week 4
So, this week it seems like I'm really moving forward. We've moved from a good portion of the hour being stretching to incorporating more strength training. And, my arms can feel it. Actually, many parts of me can tell.
I still stretch... Read more
Challenge - Week 3
This week I met with the trainer two times instead of three as he had a wedding to attend. Worked out okay as I like to run mall errands on Friday night. I thought I had errands, but wound up getting nothing. Good for the wallet.
I did... Read more
Challenge - Week 2
I've completed Week 2 and am so glad I gave this a go. The trainer I wound up with is a good guy. What impresses me is that he doesn't "go easy." No light weights here - at least they aren't light to me. He doesn't assume I can't, but rather ... Read more
Challenge - Week 1
The challenge started this week. Only two days, rather than three due to the start date, but it will go to three this coming week.
The first day was evaluating my range of motion, via my form in squats, and learning stretches to work out... Read more
It's a New Year and a Challenge....
This past year for me has been good and a little frustrating. I've been in my new locale for about a year and a half now. The job is okay, but nothing that will allow me to grow, so I'll have to make a decision about that. I'm enjoying being ... Read more
