Monday a new week
It seems that I really struggle to track my food and to get my exercises in when I am working. It doesn't matter if it is day shift or night shift. My motivation is low, and I'm so tired. A lot of the tiredness is due to the incredible amount... Read more
On Saturday I.....
.........did my 30 Day Challenge(s). 75 squats! Impressive. It would be more impressive if it was continuous. But, broke that one down to sets of 20 with a 30 second rest between. Felt the burn. Ended up doing a total of 17 minutes to get ... Read more
So, my one "rest day" of my 30 Day Challenge became 2. Not sure how that happened. Thighs were crazy sore, and it probably wasn't a bad idea. I do feel like I cheated though. My challenge is done for the day. Tonight, I get to enjoy dinner ... Read more
I'm sore. Had a lousy day at work. Finally, at 11:30, I convinced myself to do my 30 day challenge. Ugh. Happy I've exercised, but down because now I'm late going to bed yet again. Glad tomorrow is my last day and I have a few off. Read more
Can't stay consistent
It always amazes me how an injury can set one back so far. I was able to get into a great walking routine over the summer. One evening in August, I developed an intense burning sensation in one of my toes. Ignoring it, I finished my walk. On... Read more
I wonder if I should take a "before" and an "after" picture?
Though the scale hasn't changed much in the last few weeks, I tried on some clothes today/yesterday and found some stuff on the loose side. So, there may not be a change on the scal... Read more
Another crazy busy day at work. Didn't have time to take a lunch break and gobbled down my lunch at the desk. Got home tired and frustrated. Son said "what's for dinner". I don't know, left overs? He said "McDonalds".....sigh.......fin

First day back to work after a 2 week vacation. I feel good. Work was busy. Had the potential to go to hell in a hand basket.......but it didn't. Read more
First walk in for ever....
Tonight I did it. Pushed away from the computer and took advantage of a gorgeous evening.
I used a new app on my phone...walking mate. It calculated my steps, distance and calories burned. So...I walked 5.6 km in 60 mins and burned approx 2... Read more
So.......after a long hiatus from this site, thinking I might do better with WW on line program, I am back. Still going to follow WW, but I don't get the people connection on that site like I do here. My biggest road block continues to be tra... Read more
Sunday is not my day of rest.
After much procrastination today, I eeked out Day 6 of Insanity. As I wrote to a friend, I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. That is a quitting attitude BUT, I'm curious to see how much better I get the longer I do it, so I will persevere. I als... Read more
9 Days to Vacation
Well, after procrastinating most of the afternoon, I have completed day 5 of the Insanity program. I laugh at the word completed though. I did the full 38 minute workout but so much slower. I wonder if it would be easier to do in the basement... Read more
Came home from work tired even though we were not busy. We were about as far from busy as one could get. It's a nice break from the chaos as we know it. It took about an hour and a half to convince myself to put on my work out gear and find D... Read more
So an acquaintance at work has challenged me. She works in a different area than I do, but we see each other often. She has completed Insanity once already. I told her I had tried the first two days and struggled with some of it. Partly, I'm... Read more
Grrrrrrrrrrowling at myself
So, I'm a blob. Well, not really. Just feel like one.
No motivation in 3 days to work out. I'm just so tired. Did my Spark Coach check in tonight. I haven't done it for a few days, nor tracked my food, as I was too tired. Anyway....back... Read more
