Time to Buckle Down
Monday, April 27, 2009
I can't believe it has been over a year since I blogged. Looking at the scale I can see why. The roller coaster continues!
Okay so we are coming to the end of April and I have said yet again that I am going to get my act together. Boy am I tired of saying that! It is really my eating that seems to be out of control this time around. I am doing the New Rules of Lifting For Women program and I am actually loving it. I think a big part of the reason is that I have A lifting PARTNER! Exercise gets so much easier when you have someone else to spur you on. This week will be a test because my partner goes on vacation for a week, comes back for about 10 days (during which I leave) and then leaves for a week again. But we have promised to check in with each other particularly since we are starting a new stage of the program. So in an effort to keep myself motivated I am blogging my lifting and exercise routine. She doesn't leave until tomorrow but what better time to start than now. So here goes.
