Took this week off. A lot of work on my plate and I didn't need addn'l stress of more things on the list. It was nice. With temps close to 60F, I walked the dog. Taking time off gave me a chance to see how I feel about the new things I'm do... Read more
Day 10
Sunday, February 05, 2017      2 comments

I'm 10 days in. For some reason, that is significant to me. I haven't once felt like giving up or felt irritated or despondent at what I'm doing. I don't feel like I'm doing anything difficult. I'm hoping that a lot of the little things I'm doin... Read more
Why 90 days?
Thursday, February 02, 2017      4 comments

I was reading something about someone changing their body in 12 weeks. It was a dramatic change. I wondered why 12 weeks. That's 3 months. 90 days. Right? Well, not really. 12 weeks is 84 days. 3 months is 90-92 days, depending on which months. ... Read more
5 Days Down

Things are a little better. I'm glad that I'm keeping up with most of the changes I wanted to make, despite other things. I'm accepting my current limitations (can't lift because of migraine) and it's not letting me down because I can (and am) d... Read more

Today was tough. My anxiety has been building up the last few days and today it was just too much. I shut down. well, I shut in, I guess. On the good side, I didn't graze mindlessly or have a drink. On the bad side, I didn't work out. Instead, I... Read more

I'm not junking what I set for myself earlier. But I thought I'd up it a little. There are pretty specific habits in my life I don't like, so, I'm going to work on changing them over the next 90 days. Why 90? It's 21 for a new habit right? wro... Read more

Yesterday, got in some cardio. Today, wasn't sure what I was going to do. Had a rush project, so my plan was to workout once i got it done. But with the storm coming in, I had to shuffle things. I was able to get the project done, but then had t... Read more
Week in review
Sunday, January 22, 2017      1 comments

Fairly happy with workouts this week. The split seems to be working for me. Course, had a hard time concentrating on work this week, but that had nothing to do with the workout schedule. My Omega-3s got too low and since I've finally realized it... Read more

I think I lost a blog.. I wondered if I shut the page down before I posted it... This week has been going well, though a bit tough to concentrate on work. Taking today off to give legs a rest - trainer tomorrow and that's heavy work. Don'... Read more

Yesterday, did a quickie upper. Well, sort of - still took almost 30 minutes, but I also rest 90-120 seconds between sets. I concentrated on compound moves so that I hit my chest and back or shoulders and back at the same time. Woke up way ... Read more

My plan yesterday was to lift, but a headache nagged me all day. So, I decided to do light cardio instead. Well, the cardio ended up not being that light and while doing it, my head stopped bothering. Started up again aftewards *lol* But t... Read more
