Got up this morning and completed a beginner free weights workout (about 15 minutes long) and an intermediate/advanced cardio workout (about 15 minutes)! The free weights one I have done many times and enjoy; and even though it's a beginner exercise, I can always up the amount of weight to make it more challenging. The second workout was still a HASfit video, but definitely more fast paced! I couldn't keep up with some of it, but I think moving to an intermediate level will help push…Continue
WOW ladies, for real we are half way through the year already. Hardly seems possible, right? But here we are July 1 and about to embark on the second half of the year. I just looked at my post from Jan 2nd and reviewed my 2017 goals. I started out slow but I want to finish strong. I've already made a huge life change and I believe that alone will help me achieve or at least make progress in the other areas. Just the reduction of stress alone this week has been huge.
Got up at 6 today, did a 30(ish) minute workout on YouTube from a channel called The Body Project. It felt challenging without being entirely overwhelming. Feels good to have exercised! Part of me feels like I'm ready to challenge my body more. I've been completing beginner workouts for the most part, and while I'm not in shape by any means, I think I could up to intermediate or some higher difficulty. Maybe I'll experiment tomorrow!
I always wish I could write more, but I'm…Continue
My first 3 days at the new job have been wonderful. I feel welcomed, appreciated and included into the team dynamic.
I have packed my lunches all week and stayed on track. The only exception is that we are on summer hours which means 4x10 and Friday's off. Getting into the swing has made exercise almost impossible. I should get that worked out by the weekend and next week will be good. I usually takes a week for the body to adjust; always does.
Scale results for the week…Continue
So, I find that my stick-to-it-tiveness has left the building and as I flit from diet to diet and fitness regime to fitness regime I am chronically stuck. I watch all these success stories on tv etc and find myself weighing in and losing ground or not making any progress. I am clearly frustrated but I am going to really try to blog and detail a journey whatever that may look like when I am done. I need to drop about 20 pounds and get my cholesterol and blood pressure down a bit so…Continue
I went to the lake Sunday/Monday. It was a nice time. Too much food, too much wine, friend time, and being away from it all. The only negative is that I got sunburned on Monday! I should have known it would happen; my skin hasn't been exposed to the sun much this summer. UGH. So I have been braless the last two days when possible- haha!, which means no morning workouts. I'm hopeful tomorrow I'll be feeling less ouchy. I feel bad missing days of exercise, but it is really hard to ignore a…Continue
I've had a great week ladies and I can say that I am ready to start the new chapter of my story tomorrow morning.
I purged the closet of "optional" uniforms this week! Probably the most satisfying task thus far. I think it felt so good, because it was one of the most humiliating thing .... among many that my former boss did to me during my tenure.
Note: When I say humiliating - I don't mean that wearing a lunch lady uniform is humiliating -- I wore it proudly. It was the way in…Continue
Got my 25 minute low impact workout in this morning! I wasn't panting by the end, but I was sweating and felt worked. Just enough for what I'm trying to accomplish right now...which is to establish a routine.
Later this morning I'm going to meet up with my best friend and head to the lake for an overnight stay! She rented a lake house for the week and invited me. I figured one night away from home would be enough, so I'm just staying Sunday night to Monday. It should be a…Continue
I'm on my period. I'm warm. I wanted a shower this morning so badly. We ate pizza AFTER eating dinner last night. There were a multitude of things my mind decided were reasons to not work out this morning. BUT I did. I did a 15 minute free weights routine, 5 minute ab video, and a little bit of stretching. Now, I feel great!
My eating hasn't been a total priority. I mentioned in a post that my breakfast and morning snack routine I have down pat. Lunch is even pretty good, but…Continue
