Happy Friday

I love Fridays, it's the day before the weekend....the day that ends the work week...I love when it's 5:00 on Friday even more. Man I love 5:00 Fridays. I love the weekends. I don't usually have a lot planned on the weekends, it's just that I don't have to be at work. Anytime that I'm not at a good time.

This weekend, though, being Memorial weekend I do have some plans. 4-wheelin and picnicin on Saturday.....nothing but church on Sunday..then my girlfriend and I might go to Vegas to go shopping. Shopping is always good.

I'm down 3lbs since Sunday....Yay!! But, the weekends scare me, cuz that's when I usually have my cheat day. And a cheat day is great and fine when you follow a plan closely, but when you don't it can make or break any progress made. I really debated on whether to follow a specific plan or program or just try to be really careful and work out more. I've had success before with Body for Life, but sometimes it's a little restrictive for me as far as the workouts go. So after a conversation with my boyfriend, who has been a personal trainer and bodybuilder for most of his life, I've decided to work out more and be really careful with eating. It's a little more flexible and if I can't get to the gym, then I can workout at home. I've been eating small meals and if I have anything that might be higher calorie content, I eat it before 3p.m, then I taper to smaller, lower carb meals/snacks. I've worked out 3x this week and will hit the gym tonight after work. So far so good.

I have several workout dvds at home. I have the Firm, which I really like, Windsor Pilates..I do the 20 minutes every now and then. I have the big exercise ball and videos and the latest purchase was the Slim in 6 with Debbie Seibers. I have to say that the Slim in 6 is my least favorite, in fact I'm giving it to my mom. Not that you don't get a workout, cuz you do, but it's really boring. UGH!! I really do want to get Turbo Jam, I've heard that it's really fun. So, I will have to check it out!!!

I ran across this inspirational thought this fits pretty much every aspect of life, but with those of use trying to lose weight, every little bit of motivation helps.

SUCCESS is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of ENTHUSIASM.
Winston Churchill

Love it!! Sooner or later with the right attitude we have to succeed right??


  1. What a great job on your weight loss, as I sit here unable to button my pants. I need to start working out and eating better too. I have great videos but by the end of the day I'm outta steam. But no more excuses. Love the quote by the way

  2. Thanks for the comment :) I also need to step up my walking and eating better again. I lost 30 lbs last year but a few of those have crept back on. yuk! I've wanted to get the firm and the turbo workout dvds also. Good luck to you on your workouts!
