Friday, June 20, 2014

I went to the gym yesterday.
Walked 1.75 miles on the treadmill
12 minutes on the elliptical
3 sets of lat pull downs and iced the back all evening on and off.

I am trying real hard not to take any Ibuprofen.

Nice relaxing day today.
I weighed in at 118, I probably built some muscle yesterday with the workout.
Life is good!!
Beautiful weather and 70 degrees- sat on the front porch and listened to the peace and quiet and the birds chirping.

I feel pretty healthy. Why can I not walk standing straight today?  I finally figured out why I had that bout of Sciatica a few months ago, it was trying to stay fit I was at the gym 2 days a go and the abductor adducter machine s what did it.I am going to stick to tried and true sit-ups.  I am weighing in at 117 right now and body fat is I don't know because I haven't used the fat scale in  awhile.  I am getting to the gym I just don't have time to post here Ho healthy I am because I am too busy trying to stay healthy. I will try to post here more often.

I am dealing with a very sore back today.

I am keeping my weight at my normal level. This month has been fraught with medical stuff.   I did get a gym work out in today. My goal is to go on Tuesdays Thursdays and Saturday if it works out. ( Saturdays are always iffy- I usually ride my bike in the garage on Saturday mornings.

I am usually pretty good at sticking to a routine and setting goals. I have had one thing thrown at me after another.  They are not all bad thing s. They are just things that require my time and energy.

Today I spent one hour at the gym. treadmill elliptical and wights and I was able to do three planks 1 minute 40 secs and 20 secs.

Wow staying fit to busy to write on this post, but I thought I would pop in today. I have been working out. I am just not getting the time to post it.

On the 23rd I went for a 90 minute walk with some friends and then to the gym.  The funny thing is three of the machines I went to work out on were not operating after I cleaned them off- too fnny it ended up being an abbreviated workout.

see you next time I'm back.

I got out of  bed weighed myself with the upstairs scale with pj's and socks on 118.  The upstairs scale usually weighs about 3 lbs lighter.

My plan is to lose 3 lbs. to get my weight at 115 and lose some of the fat -- The scale downstairs has a fat feature on it. I will need to post u- scale for upstairs and D scale for downstairs.

Rode my bike for 15 minutes-- the timer wasn't working so I was unable to record my miles, but I did time it with my watch, which worked well enough.  I got home late from an appointment so the Hubs took me out for dinner.

Dinner was good -- I am not in the diet part of the stay fit yet- I had the chimichunga rice and beans with guacamole and sour cream.-- Here is the healthy part---I did not eat the sour cream and only 1/2 of the meal. So I save 1/2 the calories, and I don't even want to know what they would have been.
I am going to the gym tomorrow.

Happy New Year

Good Morning and Happy New Year,

This blog is to track my getting fit and staying fit progress. From time to time I will have articlecs and video clips that I find relavent to what I am doing. If you like them please let me know. This is more or less a personal journey.

I am starting out slow because I think that is the best way to make new changes stick.

Today I did 3 sets of 30 sit ups and an extra set of 10 to give me 100  yeah for me. My back is feeling better and my goal is to strengthen my core which theoretically will strengthen and support my back.

I was going to weigh myself this morning, but I forgot before I ate.  Weighing myself is not something I do on a regular basis. That will change with this process.

Later I will track the food intake, but today was a Holiday, so I get a pass.

Pleasant dreams.
