Getting My Fitness In

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

Good Day Sparfam! Its a beautiful sunny day here in Chicago & I am basking in that glow. . . . Today, I got up & made myself do All Star Workouts Yoga Zen w/weights.

I have been taking power walk breaks all day & tonight its abs, legs & glutes. Its gone be tough but I am trying to stay concentrated on getting fitness in as well as healthier foods. Yesterday, I wasn't a big mess but I will call yesterday my cheat day. I had Red Vines & grilled hamburger & chicken thigh. So I have to straighten up & fly right today. What I didn't understand is that I woke up at 1am last night hungry.

Guess what I am not thinking about?

I feel strong & I am not getting in the bed until its time to go to sleep. I stayed in bed all of yesterday except to cook a few side dishes. lol I know I'm a BUM! lol

Don't forget to dance today, its Hump Day!!

What healthy foods or new fitness class/dvd do you want to try?

God bless Sparkfam!

    I really like strength training. I like doing machines and free weights. I'm thinking about taking a strength class at the gym but I love being able to do all the machines and afraid I won't have time if I do it. Still thinking about it. I'm having fun trying to get my tennis game back. Still kind of heavy to move as fast as I used to. ( I'm getting there!) I might try a video one day. Only tried a spark one once. Keep on keepin' on. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I just want to do cardio! emoticon

    I encourage you to do that workout while you can. You never know what can ground you...but I'm an overcomer. I am more than a conqueror. Thanks Dee for all the encouragement and have yourself a Peaceful Friday! Take your husband out! lol emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hey, did I know you live in Chicago? I don't think so. We should meet up sometime!

    I hope you did get in your fitness yesterday! The weather is so great right now--we should take full advantage of it! I'm definitely speaking to myself as well as you . . .

    You are doing emoticon emoticon !!! I know that emoticon because you walk in FAITH!

    Yesterday, I mad a trip to my local Big 5 Sporting Goods store and to Sports Chalet. I was determined to get the necessary equipment to help me succeed at both my mother's home and my home. I wound-up purchasing two sets of neoprene dumbbell sets (5lbs and 7lbs) to keep at my mom's house for use (I already have my sets at my house) and a Yoga mat to do my DVD exercise routines. I also purchased The Biggest Loser Cardio Max DVD so that I could "spice-up" my weekly routine.

    We can totally do this DEE. I have much more to lose than you, but I feel like we're in the same battle to be healthy and the same journey to encourage others. Keep up the great work you've been doing and I'll do the same.
