Wow another round ends

Monday, December 08, 2014

It is hard to believe 12 weeks is over already and another round is ending. I have done many biggest loser challenges and can not believe we are done. I had a pretty good round and lost some weight but know I can do better. For the next round I will be tackling my night time eating and working out more. I need to also move my butt more when I am home with out the kids and not play on the computer as much. I will focus on doing more dvds and wii time during the day.

I have made many great friends through all the rounds. I will miss some very dear friends but totally understand while they are done with blc. It is hard to make that decision but everyone has to do what is right for them. I am going to stay strong and getting ready for another great round.

    Hey, Chickie, you were biggest competitor this round and I'm definitely going to have to watch out for you next round! emoticon

You did very well this time through and it was such a pleasure to get to know you and to chat with you throughout the twelve weeks. Your commitment to the gym and to your health is inspiring.

Keep up the good work throughout the holidays and I'll see you next round.

    I need to get up from the computer more each day too! You are always an inspiration to me with your super workouts with your trainer! But, we both know super workouts cannot be all for us! We need to activate our bodies more all day long! So, let's do it together in 2015!

Oh my goodness

Monday, December 01, 2014

Wow is it really December 1st already. IT seems like the week just flew by an now we are at Monday again. It was good to have the kids back into routine today so I could get some things done. I need to get my booty to the gym tomorrow since I did not have enough time today. I went and got us stocked up on groceries today and meals are planned for the week. I need to get the battery put back into my tracker so I can get moving again. I am going to finish the year out strong and shoot for five pounds gone. I am on the fence about signing up for another round of blc but I would miss everyone so much.

This week exercise plan:
Tuesday: Trainer and bike
Wednesday: Elliptical and treadmill
Thursday: Bike and trainer again
Friday: Elliptical and bike
Saturday: Cardio and weights
Sunday off

Missing gym time and not thrilled about it.

Thursday, November 06, 2014

So this morning I was suppose to meet with my trainer and workout again this week. But that did not happen I texted him this morning and told him no go due to being sick and coughing. So he texted back with his sad face of course because we have been working out together for over a year now. I look forward to the new exercises and the way he pushes me. I did not have the strength and energy to make it today. So he said for me to stay home sleep and drink plenty of fluids which I did today. I am hoping to go the gym in the morning and get some cardio in. So after texting with him I went and took a three hour nap. I am planning on going to be earlier to see if that helps knock out the garbage. I do not think the weather is helping to much either right now.

Hard to be sick when you have so much going on in your life.

Feeling blue

    yeah, sickness seems to get in the way when you're about to breakthrough. But rest is part of the plan they say.

    I know exactly how you feel, Shannon! I can't stop coughing and it's giving me a headache. At least my voice is getting better, so I was able to work today. Hope you get to feeling better soon. Take care!

    Shannon--- When you are sick, resting and taking care of yourself is just as important as the gym time when you feel better! So, rest and don't push yourself! Once you feel better get back to the gym and work it, but right now getting better is the first step in your health and well being!!

All of my grand parents are now in there final resting spot.

Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Yesterday was the funeral for my Dad's mom and let me tell you that has been one of the toughest things I have done. I never dreamed how hard it would be to see a grand parent for a final time. She did not look like her but I know I will keep her memory alive but thinking about all the happy times we shared with her. I will remember all the wonderful meals we had with her. I just can not believe that all four of them are all now gone. It just goes to show me life is to short and you need to full fill every dream you have. The one major thing I took away from yesterday is that Grandma always said this to shall pass and she is right. It is time for me to get back into my exercise routine and get back to my me time. I needed these last two days with family and it was good. There were some really great stories and pictures shared of her.

Love all my grand parents to the moon and back and will never ever forget you.

Love Shannon aka Shannon the cannon as Grandpa Morse used to call me.
