Happy Happy Friday

It's a beautiful day in the city (no, not NYC - but Houston - a girl can continue to dream, right?). Prospecting weather to hit around 90 degrees with no humidity - woo-freakin-hoo! That means no limp hair and no sweat dripping down the back of my thighs at 7am!!!!

The other great thing about today is this AM's weigh-in: 164.0! Yeah baby!! I'm also up to 50 crunches and 10 push-ups. Man, not working out through the semester really pushes a girl out of shape. But I'm not dwelling on the low set numbers, I am elated that I am able to do anything at this point without hurting myself. So today's goal (since it's a non-workout day) is to not overeat or overdrink. Ahhhh, vino at the park!

Skippin Across the Tracks

I can't say I'm back on track, but I can say I am happily skipping across the tracks.

This morning's weight: 164.6 (down from 167.something from yesterday). Yes, I know it's just the salt intake from inhaling giganticus bags of kettle corn chips and cheetos puffed corn (those are devilishly addictive) pouring out of my system thanks to copious amounts of water consumed and lost yesterday.

Zumba, a great laugh if nothing else, totally kicked my arse yesterday evening. But I plan to continue the weekly guffaws and hip sways along with my weekly walks. Soon, I will incorporate weekly yoga (how I miss yoga) to help center my chi.

Where in the world have you been?

Whew! It’s been ages since my last blog, so long ago – I was wishing folks a Merry Christmas in Hawaiian!!!! Well, it’s been a stressful few months with school & work kicking my butt and the results of this stress aren’t pretty. Tippin the scale at 169 this week has, yet again, refueled my drive to workout and eat healthy. Stress has also hit my pocket book. Although it’s been resale shopping, my epiphany came when I spent a total $120 over the course of visiting 3 resale shops in 1 day! Goodness! What the heck was I thinking?

Anyhoo. Now that school is done for the moment, I can take a breather and relax. I am working on getting back on track health-wise. I have been actually weeding and clipping my garden (even tossing some water out there every now and again). I am trying to stop and smell the roses – literally since mine are blooming like weeds, only prettier.

No, I will not be snapping photos of my meals – but you can find me on tracking my calories and workouts.

I will try to restart expressing my thoughts and stop beating up on The Fella when things don’t go my way.

With that said, I will say – Welcome Back!
