I can't think of a title. I don't know what to call this post so I guess I'll have to call it blank.
I'm actually feeling pretty bad right now. I haven't been posting and several of you have sent me messages asking if all is right in my world and it is. It really and truly is, I just haven't been in the mood to write.
I'm going to try to change that this week, try is the operative word. I'm leaving for our National Managers Conference at the end of the week and so this week promises to be a busy one. I'm going to be going to the gym in the evenings with my husband as I have been for the past week and a bit. However, I'm going to have to be dealing with shopping, laundry and packing as well so I'll have to wait and see how I do for the posting part of it.
I'm just back from the gym, not quite an hour ago now, we came home, showered and had a nice healthy lunch of green salad with a grilled 4oz chicken breast cut up through it. It was very yummy for the tummy. I enjoyed it. I'm still a little hungry but I'm going to drink another bottle of water to see if I'm really hungry or I just ate to fast. I'll have to wait and see.
I've gotten a lot of activity in this week, I went to the Gym, Monday, Wednesday and today. I didn't get there on Tuesday as Life got in the way and Thursday I helped out over at my parents house weedwacking the yard and raking up the grass clippings. Saturday, I didn't get there as I simply didn't have the energy. I'm not using that as an excuse but I was falling asleep everytime I sat down. You see I haven't been sleeping very well(for about three weeks) and on Friday night, I finally, finally broke down and took a half a sleeping pill. I don't like taking them; but when on average you're only getting maybe two hours of sleep on and off through the whole night and it's been like that for weeks; you eventually have to bite the bullet and do something about it. My husband asked me to please take one and so I did. Thus the reason I had absolutely no umption in my gumption on Saturday at all. I was groggy and dozy the whole day.
Today I'm much better, I had a good night sleep last night and even had an hour long nap this morning and then off to the gym I went. Today I followed Jillian Michaels advice in her book "Winning by Losing". In it she says to do no more than 10 minutes of warm up cardio before doing your resistance training and after your resistance training do the bulk of your cardio.
This is what I did today. I did 10 minutes on the Stairclimber and then moved into my resistance training. I can honestly tell you,I felt the difference today, I actually felt as though I was challenging myself with my weights, I was able to do more reps then when I do my resistance training after 45minutes of cardio. So how about that...I learned something this week and it paid off!
This post is getting a little long winded, I guess that's what happens when you haven't blogged for almost three weeks!LOL!
Weight loss, in the past three weeks I'm down 4.5 pounds. I'm not thrilled with that number but I'm happy with it, the weight is going in the correct direction so I'm fine with that.
