Checking in

Hey gang!


Been trying to play catch up at work, and catch up with sleep – I have been wiped out since coming back from our short vacation.  Sleeping in until 8:00 for four days makes getting up at 5:30am really really difficult! 


Working out this week has been a non-event.  I’m just so wiped out after work, that it’s all I can do to make dinner and go to bed, so I’ve given myself a break this week from the walking and what-not until I feel like I’m caught up on some rest.  I’ll start walking again this weekend.  I’m also thinking of ordering a kick boxing dvd, something to do when it’s just too damn hot to walk on the treadmill in the garage.  And lately it’s just been too damn hot.


Food- well I think I’m doing okay considering the cupboards are bare in my home.  I hate grocery shopping because a) it just takes so long and b) it costs so much now.  I hate spending all my money on groceries, but I like to eat, so I guess I’ll have to bite the bullet and go to the store after work.  Yuck.


I’ve maintained my weight for the past month, so I think I’m ready to get back in the groove and lose some more.  Losing 12 pounds in one month kind of scared me a bit, so I have been just working on maintaining, but it’s time to get back in the saddle. 


I told Debby and Laura that I’d be doing the push up challenge that is popping up all over the internet, but I have yet to do my initial test.  Honestly, I’ll be amazed if I can do 5 push ups.  I need to put a note on the fridge so I won’t forget to do it, because that’s the only reason I haven’t started it yet – I keep forgetting!  I’ll make myself a note to make myself a note to remember to not forget to do that thing that I keep forgetting to do.  Or maybe I’ll just set up a reminder on my phone – that way it will keep beeping at me until I do it!  Okay, that’s what I’ll do. 


Off to play with my phone alerts!!


Have a great day y’all!

  1. Hey, Jill! I wasn’t going to take that margarita quiz because I don’t drink anymore, and when I did it was never margaritas. But doggone it, you made me do it! And I couldn’t believe the results! Then I made 2 more people at work take it and it really described them too. How could those silly questions predict people’s personalities so well? Here is my description–I am a Strawberry Margarita (which is definitely the flavor I would get if I were to get one):

    “You’re so sweet it’s a little overwhelming, and people are a little afraid of corrupting you…
    It’s a little difficult to imagine you with a margarita. And you’re truly a different person after you’ve kicked back a couple!”

    So, boy, I get you about getting up early for work. I had a hard time getting to sleep last night, and I just laid there when the alarm went off this morning. Yuck. Plus I agree with you about the heat. I am so glad I joined Curves. Even though it is only 30 or 40 minutes, I am convinced it is 30 or 40 minutes more than I would be doing right now, with the combination of heat and dust on my road where I usually walk. I am surprised at how energetic and strong it is making me feel. Regarding the pushup challenge, I think I told you I could only do one pushup for the test. But Tuesday, first day of week two, I did 20. I can’t believe it. It is the hardest exercise I think I have ever done. But I feel like I am accomplishing something when I do it.
