Happy New Year!!!

OK-back at this blog thing. Hopefully on a daily basis.
5/1/2010 is the show. UGH! Freaking out a bit. Trying to get diet and cardio in order so I don't have to kill myself.
Need to lose A LOT of body fat before then.
Going to have to get my buns on the treadmill if the trails stay muddy.

Talk to me! Where is everyone? How's training, dieting, life???

Long time no post. Too much travel and not enough time :)
Diet has been decent considering the hotel/airport/plane food. Lost 2 lbs when I thought I would have gained. Down 3% body fat and am stoked about that!!!
Still on 250 calories 6 x/day at this point. Quads and delts today. Robin killed me :) Squats and leg press and leg extension and squat jumps. I walk crooked.

Learned that Spaghetti Squash with sauce and chicken is quite lovely.
Made sandwiches ahead and bought some lean cuisines that were 250 cal or less to help with meal prep.

Any feedback out there?
TTFN~going to try and run tho I don't think my legs will work.

The run was fun in the evening sun ~

Good diet. No booze!!!

I haven't been blogging as I am in the process of moving my office and have a lot of irons in the fire.
I weighed in at the gym today and have lost another 1/2lb! Waahooo!!! Baby steps.
I had a record week ~ Leg press with 12 plates :) 3 reps of 15 (that's 45lb weight plates, not 12 dinner plates) and shoulder press with the 30lb'rs on each side! It was very exciting for me to increase as Robin has been kicking my a** for so long it was nice to be stronger on something for a change.
Today I had ZERO energy and whined my way thru the entire workout AND I finished. Poor Robin had to almost beat me to motivate me :( I think I am just feeling the stress and need some quality rest.
My goals for this weekend are to not drink and enjoy Arizona yet still eat healthy!
I love hearing about my friends progress as well. It motivates me to get out the door!
Tag-you're it! Post!!!!

Thursday 9/24

Happy Thursday night!
I had a HARD week of workouts with Robin in addition to too a bunch of stress.
Today I found a wee bit-o-clarity and I am thrilled about it!
Diet was great all day!!
Tonight Dave and I took the doggies out for a lovely 1.5hr stroll in the Boise Foothills.
Ahhhhhh~We are so lucky to be able to do that.

Lunges again with 45lb's in each hand and some hellish bicep curls that are still hurting me :)
Let's hope I can be booze free on Friday!

Bedtime-day 10

Wow-so tired. Lack of sleep setting in. 
Thanks for killing my quads Robin.  
5 plates each side!  Wahooo....love that!
Wish my tri's and chest were that strong!
Would love to get some feedback going on here...Really want to know how others maintain-handle tough times/temptations.


Mother Nature Blues

OK-so, I am finding out that Mo Nature takes more out of me the older I get. I have been less than functional for a few days now. The added stress of "the economy" (I hate that saying) is probably contributing to my less than stellar mood/motivation.

So far tho, I've had my cream of wheat w/nectar and almonds and some java. Operating on about 2 hours of sleep (maybe less as I am not sure when I drifted off)~

My friend in OK lost 7lbs!!!! Waahoooo!!! Great job!

Yesterday's lift went better than expected and Robin once again got me thru. Thanks missy.
I was informed that I needed to buck up on the food end and get serious so - bye bye wine. I will have to do some yoga to deal with this stress instead of tipping the glass bottles upside down!
