I'm happy to report that I am still tracking my macros. Yesterday was Day 8. "Day 8" (or thereabouts) tends to be my kryptonite. Usually, any time I try to implement a change, or do a "program" (like when I tried repeatedly to do the #75Hard program...), I go forth strong for...about 8 days. I… Continue reading Over the 8 day hump/ nutrition podcast rec
I finally went back to the gym! (I feel like I've had a few of these "I'm back!" posts....hopefully you won't see one again. 😆) Back around my birthday in October, I had kind of claimed this next year as the "year I return to the gym", after falling out of it bigtime during the… Continue reading Back in gym (again)
Well, this was eye opening. If you had asked me, "Did you workout a lot in 2021?", I think I would have probably answered, "Yeah, most days! Some stretches here and there I got off track, but overall, yes, more often than not." But data doesn't lie. 🙂 Here are my stats from 2021: *(small… Continue reading 2021 Workout recap + 2022 plan
I returned to the gym on October 18th (the day after my b-day), so I'm now in my 3rd week back. I'm proud to report that so far, I have met my goal of going 3x/ week for weight room sessions (as I said, currently doing 1. shoulders/triceps 2. legs 3. back/biceps). IT FEELS SO… Continue reading Happiness in the gym
I went back to the gym! I hinted that I was planning to do this post-birthday, and I did! (pat self on back). My official return was on Monday afternoon, after an eye doctor appt. I had my eyes dilated, so I really couldn't see to go back to work for a while anyway. But… Continue reading “3 Things I Did” Thursday
I'm kind of excited that my birthday falls on a weekend this year!! I'm feeling the whole "birthday weekend" idea. Normally I don't really care a whole lot about my birthday...I am not someone who takes the whole week off work, books a bunch of special things to do, etc. But I do love the… Continue reading 7 am vs 7 pm, birthday weekend, return to gym?
I haven't done one of these in a long time! Feeling it today, though. 🙂 1- It is fall. Being the fall loving person that I am, I know it's odd I haven't addressed this fact yet on the blog. We are actually having a snap of cooler (but in a lovely, beautiful way, not… Continue reading Friday 5: fall books, XC, meals, WFH & workouts!
Yesterday was Asher's very first 5:30 a.m. swim workout. As part of the scheduling dance to fit everyone in throughout the week, his group is assigned the Wednesday 5:30 -6:45 a.m. slot. His other practices are always in the evening, so it's just one early day per week (and, it's optional.) But when the schedules… Continue reading Early morning workouts
When we got home from vacation this past Sunday, I intentionally told myself I wasn’t even going to think about exercise for at least a few days. I know how much effort it takes to get back in the swing of real life again, so I just completely removed that from my plate. (I think… Continue reading Back to exercise
Today is the last day of summer school already! I know Asher started a week late, but these last few weeks have flown by. This morning he wraps it up. He has seemed to REALLY enjoy it, despite "being the only boy" in a couple of his art classes. I'm glad to see him enthused… Continue reading 3 Things Thursday: School, workouts, covid
