I opted to have a rest from cardio yesterday which put me a little behind on a challenge I made so today I knew I absolutely had to do cardio. I would really have preferred to go for a walk outside, but since it is cold and rainy I went to the g... Read more

Yoga is scheduled for tonight. Looking forward to it, but I hope I can figure out a way not to have my hands and wrists hurt again this week. Hopefully we'll do a different workout that doesn't stress them so much. I have to stay positive so I c... Read more
Planning Ahead for Success

I'm taking time today to plan my week out so that I can have success and get back on track. Hubby is slowly recuperating from his shoulder replacement surgery so I don't have to come home at noon to check on him so I can get back into my noontim... Read more

Plugging Ahead

Well, even though I am feeling bloated and fat I have been trying to be committed. Today I went to the gym at noon (second day this week alone since Bill is still feeling puny) and I did upper body strength and core strength. Then I went for a 3... Read more
