Today is Wednesday August 29, 2012. With school starting a new in nearly every town around me, I often think back to my student teaching days and miss them. Sigh. I can’t have everything and I’m happy with what I have right now. Teaching will happen someday, somewhere, somehow. Boo-yah!

So. This weekend was great. Filled with friends, great concert, yummy wine and good food. Sans any workout! Woops. Monday I MADE myself go to a zumba class. It was great.. I forgot how much I like to shake my butt! Last night got a bit mixed up. Instead of getting jumbled, and skip a workout all together, I hopped in the car and head down to riverwalk. Riverwalk is a .25 of a mile loop outside! Perfect I thought. Run around that a few times and I’ll be good to go. Right? WRONG. I made it around once, then had to walk the second lap. I forgot how hard running outside was. I was so glad I made it OUTSIDE to run. I also forgot how FUN it is. Today is jam-packed so I’m taking the day off!

Day by Day! I should think about getting on that scale, but I’m slightly to terrified! EEEk.


I love Fridays. I love Fridays even more when there is a fun weekend lined up 🙂

Made it to kickboxing last night. Didn’t ‘really’ get into the class till is was almost over. But hey.. I found a 5:30 class I enjoy. Cheers to that! It was really nice to be all done by 6:30!

AND I went swimming during lunch today. It was quite funny waiting in the with all the seniors to get in the pool at 12 on the dot. Apparently all those male senior citizens love there 12 o’clock laps and if you aren’t in a lane by 12:05 you’re out of luck!! Haha. I laugh just thinking about it. I’m thinking I might need to become friends with my lane buddy Joe.

Salad for lunch, banana & PB + lemon zinger tea for 3pm snack. Bring on dinner baby, starting to get the hang of this eating stuff all over again!


It’s only 9:10 AM and I think I’ve looked at the clock about 20 times. Sheesh.

All in all, I’m excited about today! Lunching with a great friend is always a plus and I FINALLY have a night to work out. I’m still struggling with finding time and I know I need to make it a priority. But I just let things get in the way. Sometimes  I have a valid reason, like class or hanging out with the boy (let’s face it, I rather hang out with him then sweat it out at the gym), but other ‘excuses’ just sneak there way to the top of the list. AND THIS I’M NOT PROUD OF. There are some fantastic things coming up in the next few months – possibly a trip somewhere warm in the winter months (side note: It has been on my bucket list for years to go somewhere warm and sandy during the gross/cold/wet/slushy times here. Woot. I hope it works out!) and perhaps a gala – like all cinderella-ish!! So therefore all these small mundane tiny non-sense excuses better get the bleeeem out of here. I don’t have time for you. I got pounds to lose, arms to sculpt, and walking in heels to practice. Plus being in the arms of your man is SO MUCH BETTER when you feel good about yourself and not like a whale. Just sayin!

So there. Bye-bye excuses. Why hello nice new workout schedule. I think we should be friends 🙂

Well. That. Was. Quite. Tricky. Go ahead and don’t workout for a few weeks and see just were you end up. Holy cow. I didn’t realize I lost as much as I had. I begin running, then jogging, then walking/crawling my way to 3.1 miles. It only took me 48:10 mins. Hahahaha. Yup. That is all I got!

Again today I packed my gym bag early this morning, there might be a slight hornets nest problem to tackle before I’m sailing on the treadmill. I WILL GET TO THE MILL TODAY!

I feel emotionally amazing these days, but not so much physically amazing. This I’m working on 🙂 Baby steps.. right?

Getting myself super excited for the gym later. If I start now.. by 5pm I should be nice and ready. LOL

Just got back from a week long vacation on the Cape. I feel recharged and ready to tackle the next few months. Bring it!
