Omg twinsies.  LOL.  I don't do much reading at all these days, but when I was younger, you could NOT get me to stop reading the historical romance novels.   Brave Scotsman?  Fiery Irish lass?  YES PLEASE!

I bought a lot of them off of ebay about 10 years ago and re-read. they hold a special place in my heart. ALSO, I learned so much about tumultuous periodsof american history!

THIS WEEK

Monday, I didn't exercise.

I thought I would on Tuesday. but I lazed about in bed and missed the trip to the gym timing. <-- I won't lie, I called the gym and asked them on monday night if the ladies room was STILL out of order and there are STILL no showers. UGH. I knew I needed to wash my hair and I didn't want to bring a blowdryer to the office with me. BOOOO. that is my bad excuse.

Tuesday I did go to TKD, but it was a lot of instructing and not much sweating.

Today though!

today I got up and exercised. we went to the gym. I ran for 1.25 miles at 6.4 on the treadmill, walked for 0.25, ran for another 0.75, and then cooled down. stretches and to work for a non-hair-washing shower.

 

I have my site visit tomorrow and a meeting in nyc, so no tkd in the evening. but am def. planning to get up and go to the gym on friday.

I didn't read those ones, no.   Gosh, I can't even remember any of the authors.  Ah!  Google fu!   Julie Garwood was a favorite of mine I think!  Haha, I was super into Irish and Scottish historical romance, and she did a fair few of those.  Oh man !  And Jude Deveraux.   Wow, that name just came to me, like I dusted off the brain muscle that locked away romance novels hehe.

 

I don't think your lack of showers excuse is so bad.  I'm sure the people that would be around you afterward also agree you chose wisely hah.

AHOY AHOY.

I don't like the instant movement of challenges to "OLD" because it makes me realize I'm a slacking slacker who is always late.

UM SO.

 

Thursday was my long day at the construction site, and then I had an evening meeting so no exercising.

Friday I didn't go to the gym b/c it was snowing in the morning. So I stayed home, and we got like, 5 inches but it was nice fluffy stuff that fell on warm pavement so I didn't even get a chance to shovel exercise! instead I walked down to the library and back, which is about a 2 mile round trip, briskly (because it was freakin' cold and I didn't want to linger).

Sat. was DOJO SAT. I didn't go to boston to see my dad this weekend, so had weapons and boxing. it's been a long time since I used a bostaff and my forearms are TIRED after trying to control it. I also banged my anklebone and it's sore too. I also thought of /index.php?/profile/47875-roguelibrarian/" rel="">@RogueLibrarian when I very purposefully did NOT pass out while we did a very long period of combo moves on the heavy bags. it's been a really long time since I had boxing class - possibly since last year!!! yikes. regular class after that, which was good and focused on techniques.

Then sunday I met my sibs at my dad's house and we moved a bunch of stuff around, and some stuff back to my house, and I had to hump it all indoors at 830PM and after the big stuff was in I told my husband to go study so I had the last 30 minutes of boxes moving all to myself which SUCKS but you know, had to do it. not an official workout, but I did have an elevated heart rate.

 

challenge recap?

I started with the best of intentions, but it was still too much to do.

things I WAS able to do:

 

* eat correctly. here's my tracker  - I logged my food every day of the challenge! that is awesome. I ALSO more often than not was at or under my goal - and esp weeks 3 and 4, where you can see my weight increase started to change to a decrease. YAAAAS.

 

40953f00680b7a389f4ac093362c69e9.jpg

 

starting weight (trend) 188.6

ending weight (trend) 187.3.

large.031317_Weight.JPG.5c1ced376aaa4938

 

SO I lost ~1 lb this challenge, and I'm happy about that.

 

other than that, I started to get back to the gym, which was good - even though it was spurred by a perhaps slightly obsessive reaction to my dad's health. those first couple of weeks (esp right after the surgery) I was really exercising like gangbusters, but it wasn't a thoughtful implementation of plan, but a really reactive "GET TO THE TREADMILL AND RUN SO YOUR HEART DOESN'T FAIL" kind of thing. This week I am in a much better place, having made it purposefully to the gym, gone to TKD, and gotten a walk in when I didn't have a chance for gymming. THAT is a good choice.

 

I still miss you all, and am still having a hard time getting stuff taken care of so that I can spend more time checking in. Maybe that's all I'll do next challenge. SO GOOD. only check-ins, but with zero food or exercise strings attached so it'll all be cat pictures and stories about my house. :)
