Hooray for Friday! Boo for Nor'easter!

Friday, January 23, 2015      5 comments

Apparently a big storm is on its way for tonight and tomorrow, and all the weather people are still not very sure exactly what's going to happen. There will be rain. And snow. And ice. I'm really glad I have P90X and all my other wor... Read more

Have I mentioned yet how much I hate winter??

I'm sure I have. But it bears mentioning again. Ugh, winter, GO AWAY ALREADY.... Read more

Sometimes, you outdo yourself.

I tried REALLY HARD to talk myself out of my workout this morning. I actually had to say out loud: "Suzanne, just DO IT already and get it over with!" And I did. And the first 20 minutes was not pretty. But I hit my stride, and ... Read more

One day at a time

Got up and got the workout done... even though I reeeeally wanted to stay in bed and snuggle with the dog this morning. She was being extra-super-cuddly this morning, and it was very cold and dark... indeed, it feels and looks like we're going ... Read more

The next steps

Tuesday, January 13, 2015      1 comments

Well, I went to the doctor yesterday for my bloodwork follow-up. My bloodwork is, according to the doctor, perfect. In fact, although my cholesterol level was 200 - which is considered "borderline" among healthcare professionals, my HDL ch... Read more

Long time, no blog

Yeah, figured I'd check in. Had a few fits and starts with P90X, but I'm in a groove again. Long may it last. I've also hung up the jeans I want to fit into so I can see them every morning when I wake up. If I am tempted to roll over... Read more

Days 6 and 7

My mojo got a liiiiittle thrown off yesterday (stupid personal stuff), so I did yesterday's workout today (which is supposed to be a rest day). So - I'm back on track. :) I did the Kenpo workout - and, as always, it felt really good. I love ... Read more

Days 4, 5, and 6

Saturday - DAY 4 - Yoga X: I was surprised at how well I did, even in spite of not having done it since July. It took me a while to relax my brain, but once I settled into it, I really found myself loving it. Sunday - DAY 5 - Legs & Back:... Read more

Yeah... so... I did P90X Plyo yesterday. And I didn't really break a sweat until about a third of the way through it. THAT is how it compares to Insanity! On the plus side, it was the best Plyo workout I'd ever had. Cardiovasc... Read more

Planning ahead

I still feel kind of crappy... TIRED. Very anxious to get to the doc on Monday! But I've got a plan for today, and I feel good about it. I've planned out all my meals for the day, because when I am this tired, if I leave things to cha... Read more

Day 1

I know I said I wasn't going to work out until I see the doc next Monday... but it felt WEIRD to not work out. I guess that's a good thing..? It's officially a HABIT. Yay! Did good old P90X this morning, Day 1 - Chest & Back. Challengin... Read more

Plan B

Insanity is just too insane for me right now. :( I have decided that I'm going to hold off on workouts until I can see the doctor, because I'm pretty sure that I shouldn't be falling asleep an hour after I'm done with my workouts. Workout... Read more

Doctor's office was a bit of a bust... I got there and they told me that I needed to see someone else. (I went to the clinic because I have no regular doc, my old doc having "sold out" by forming an elite practice that would cost me an annual f... Read more

Doctor time

Plainly put, I'm tired of being tired. And it's been this way for YEARS. I've been able to push through it up til now... but either I'm running out of strength, or it's getting worse and overpowering me, or maybe a combination of both. ... Read more
