and that’s how it’s done



Yesterday was intense. Gym work out, I mean.

10 minutes of cardio

30 minutes of resistance/strength training

80 minutes of cardio

I definitely pushed myself through some limits, my right arm felt a little weaker last night from muscle ache but feeling great now.

Came home after 2 hours at the gym expecting a nice shower in my own home (I don’t like to shower at the gym on weekends, too crowded)… but the power had been out for over an hour!  Had to sponge bath it. Mom showed up and took us all out for sushi, ick, before the shower. Had one as soon as I got home. Felt much better.

I woke up starving this morning, that’s a good sign.

Hard boiling and egg and making a breakfast smoothie right now.

Back to the gym this morning for a bunch of cardio, loving that slice has shows I like on it while I’m working out. Sometimes the music can be a little monotonous.

Plan of attack today 60 minutes of cardio this morning, then out to the barn with the kids, Oldest H gets to ride her old boy today for the first time since his injury. She is very excited, missed Titan like crazy. Get to see the 2oolb baby again, wonder how much she’s changed in 2 weeks.

Miss D is begging for bangs, has a large freckle/mole/beauty mark on her forehead, now old enough to start feeling self conscious about her image :o(  Just getting her bangs and keep telling her she’s beautiful and smart, hoping to help that along. No reason to make her suffer over this.  Taking her to see the family doc next week, make sure there’s nothing to that mole. With so many cases of skin cancer in our family, better safe that sorry.

Wedding plans chugging along nicely, still have 1.5 inches to go on the hips, so I’m going to step up the cardio a little. I bought a bike, so hoping to get out a few nights a week for a trek on that, possibly with MoH Mel, maybe kids if it’s early enough.

Keeping motivated with the friends over at Debbie Does Dieting, loving the idea of positive support and motivation. Get some of that in real life too, makes a difference.
