Eleven leads to Twelve

Wednesday, July 29, 2015      2 comments

All I need to do is get to 11. That is my mantra. Especially on days when I am just not feeling it, dawg. You know those days, when you force yourself into the gym. Maybe you are tired, maybe it's the weather. Maybe you have other plans, or you ... Read more

Less Time Off, More Time Focused

Trusting and Committing

Friday, July 24, 2015      4 comments

I'm making working out the centerpiece of my life. I am starting to build that feeling of "getting" to do these workouts - rather than a must or a chore. I have about 4 months worth of sessions that are already paid for. It is beginning to be ex... Read more

No Excuses for Leg Day

Thursday, July 23, 2015      2 comments

I woke up, rolled over and thought I would really love to get some more zzz's, though the time was coming for me to shake a leg and get to the gym. It would have been so easy for me to text my trainer and tell him I wouldn't be there. I wanted t... Read more

Responsible Ownership

Tuesday, July 21, 2015      7 comments

When my car sprang a leak last week, it was easy to see what went awry once the initial shock wore off. I wasn't expecting rain to come pouring in through my roof. No, the sunroof was not open, but my car is apparently not as airtight as I would... Read more

Here We Go

Friday, July 17, 2015      8 comments

I am undergoing a re-birth. I've gone from having upheaval in my life, to embracing the uncertainty --- and though, it is not a feeling I enjoy, I am pushing off the unknown and trying for it to wait to unfold instead of relentlessly pursuing i... Read more

Who Needs Motivation?

Tuesday, July 07, 2015      8 comments

Motivation is something I used to think I needed, in abundance. I am getting over that thought now and replacing my desire for motivation with a strength of purpose, and commitment. Motivation is a lot like a fly by night friend, someone who dro... Read more

I Got a Feeling

Monday, July 06, 2015      11 comments

Hurrah! I felt great tonight at the gym. It kicked in about 5 minutes into my routine, when I hit the high note and it continued throughout. Happy thoughts swam in my head. I am made to work out. Yes, I can do this. I can and ... Read more

Getting going again

I'm heading to the gym tonight for the first time in a couple of weeks. I was waylaid a bit with a variety of things, but I have a 7:30pm meet-up tonight which I am keeping. I started the day out with a healthy breakfast of fresh fruit - b... Read more

Beyond the Year of Living Dangerously

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      5 comments

I am just getting over a sickness that lasted two weeks or so which included a bevy of things not designed to keep me well --- from a persistent and nagging cough, probable kidney stone pain, separation anxiety from my coach, and a major deadli... Read more

Rolling out of the fog

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      8 comments

This has been an interesting couple of days where I have been feeling both highs and lows. I am proud of myself though, for hanging in there, and coming out of what feels like a fog. I talked to my counselor (shrink) yesterday, and my heal... Read more

Getting in the right frame of mind takes some work. It can be harder when life feels like a whirling dervish around you. I am experiencing some struggles and conflicts at the moment, but I am completely aware that while I have no control of the ... Read more

Slow Progress is Still Progress

Thursday, June 18, 2015      6 comments

Even when my mind may be all systems go - it does not necessarily mean the rest of me is following suit. It has been a week with a little bit of struggling - not isolated to any one particular area - all areas, but it is okay because I may only ... Read more
