Exercising despite obstacles!

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

Life just gets in the way sometimes! All of a sudden priorities shift and life gets complicated, after settling into an early morning exercise routine hubbie is scheduled to work until midnight! So, we missed a day or two or i went early and he went late morning.

Then two wakes ad funerals out of town and the emotional toll that drgs a person down.

But, life goes on too! A two year olds birthday party sure helps to make you life and enjoy family and friends!

I missed some workouts and my Spring into shape Bootcamp will take a little longer than anticipated to complete, i will still get it done!

The good news is my son who had one high blood pressure took it seriously and in two months drpped twenty three pounds! emoticon oh to be young and able to drop weight that fast! He is eating healthier and exercising, how cool is that!

Lifestyle changes and trying to keep on trucking!

    Congrats to you and your son. Probably your example sent him on his road to weight loss. Life does get into the way for us, and all we can do is just start over and keep on going. Have a great day!

Back On Track

Sunday, April 06, 2014

My hubby and I are back on the Fitness track! Woo Hoo!

I have lost some weight and some inches!

Discovered Body Pump class at my local Fox Valley YMCA and continuing Zumba and Spin Classes.

Tracking my Nutrition and Fitness, and not ashamed of the results either!

Somehow this feels right this time!

The hubby is my fitness buddy and although he does not track anything having him exercise with me and both of us trying to eat right really is a great help!

I am in the Spring into Shape Bootcamp Team with SP and that is helping keep me accountable too!

Sparking along!

Saturday, March 22, 2014

OK I am back Sparking along again! Wake up call through the Healthe Measures program for me and my spouse so we are hitting the YMCA daily and improving our nutrition choices. I am tracking again on Sparkpeople because when I looked back my active time on Spark correlate with me losing weight! Imagine that!! emoticon

My teams have continued on and I feel like I am catching up on people that I used to communicate with o a regular basis, looking for that much needed support!

I have signed up for a Sprint Triathlon and am using that to motivate me to continue healthy choices in eating and exercising.

I am feeling better and less winded already, the YMCA welcomes me back and seeing people I knew and making new friends too!

Life is a journey and I am a part of that !
