Short post...

Just a quick note to say, "I stayed on track!" I've used 33 of my 37 pts! I didn't get all 8 glasses of water in, but I did get 5. I'm not a good water drinker. It's something I'm working on.

I, also, FINALLY did the 10 min Biggest Loser workout. When I started the tape I thought that I might do it twice, because it is only 10 min. WOW! What a workout. I was sweating like a pig by the end of the 10 min. I only did it once, but I was very proud of the fact that I made it completely through the workout without quitting. Seth did the workout too! I was sooo proud of him.
My plan for tomorrow is to stay within my 37 pts, drink 8 glasses of water, and get some form of exercise in. I'm going yardsaling with my mom and the kids in the morning, so I should get a lot of walking in. If it isn't too hot we may go walk at City Lake.

Have a blessed day!

Back with a vengance....

I've really been pushing myself this week. At lease, when it comes to exercise. I've done really well with my food the last two days. I've exercised everyday this week, so far. Monday - I did an hour of water aerobics, Tuesday - I did an hour of water aerobics at 1:00 and again at 7:00, Wednesday - I did an hour of Zumba, and tonight I did an hour of water aerobics. Needless to say, I'm exhausted, but in a good way.

The water aerobics are fantastic. If you haven't tried them you should. It is great low impact cardio work. But when you get out of the pool you can tell you have worked every muscle in your body. Not sure how, but you do work up a sweat, even in a cold pool. lol! Hoping to be able to continue with the water aerobics throughout the winter at the local high school. We should find out this week.

Zumba was AMAZING! That is all I keep saying about it. I sweated my butt off! lol! It was hard, but fun. You are doing Latin dancing. It's fast and your hour is up in no time. I'm hoping to find a class that I can attend on a regular basis. The Wednesday night class won't work in a few weeks. We have bible study on Wed at 7:00 and I'm the leader. Soooo, I probably need to be there. lol!

I'm just really amazed that I'm feeling so strong. I've really upped the exercise game and I'm liking it. I want to exercise, and I'm seeking out ways to do it. If I had a pool at my house I would be doing water aerobics twice a day every day! I have FINALLY found a exercise that I love! And it is helping me find more ways to enjoy exercise.

My goal for tomorrow is to stay within my 37 pts, drink 8 glasses of water, and find some form of exercise.

Have a blessed day!

Scary day!!!

This post has nothing to do with weight lose, it has to do with being grateful. I got a call around 12:30 today letting me know that my husbands work was on FIRE! I'm very glad to say that Kevin is a night shift worker, he works from 10 pm to 6 am. This morning he had to work a 12 hr shift so he didn't get off until 10 am. The fire didn't start until 11:30 am. So, I knew he was home and safe. But it makes you really think about how quickly life can change. It only takes a split second for your life to completely change. We are very lucky that he got to go back to work tonight. I'm not sure of the details yet, but it was a very big fire and the Tell City fire dept are still at the plant making sure that it doesn't reignite. No one was killed or hurt and they are already making iron again. Thank you Lord for watching over all of the men/women at the plant this morning! Here's a pic from the local news:

So, take a minute today and just be thankful for everything you have. Hug your loved ones and thank God for all the blessings He has given you! I know that I am!

Have a blessed day!
