Not as sore today as yesterday so think I should be ready to hit it hard on Tuesday for strength and back at my normal weights.  As of 20 til 11 no schedule for next week yet still hoping to see it in the next hour or so.  Schedule was just published and it didn't change from when it was accidentally published on Tuesday so still 5 days of workouts 2 Cardio days and 3 strength days.Still down 2.4# for the week and month so far weight was the same this morning but down for the week and month.  Still trying to decide if I want to join TOPS online this time or not. Whatever I decide to do Christian is behind me no matter what. Might see how this 4 weeks goes then decide after if I want to rejoin but online this time instead of going and sitting in a meeting where they get off topic too easy.

Still sore from this past week's workouts but not as sore as yesterday at least for now. Will know after walking and standing at work if I'm still really sore or not.  Work a short shift today so will stretch when I get home need to look up some stretches to do but will do that later. Still hoping to have close to 10K steps by the time I get home tonight. Finished binge watching Fuller House last night so need to find something else on Netflix to watch until season 3 comes out.

Sore from this week's workouts and glad I have tomorrow and this weekend to work through the soreness. Listening to my XM radio and 90's on 9 these great songs take me back to Jr High and High School.  Monday night I started watching Fuller House on Netflix and finished season 1 that night and started season 2 last night and will try to finish it as soon as I get 10K steps for the day. I've already reached my daily activity goal for today.

Had an amazing Leg Workout today burned 714 calories. Bought some holiday M&M's since they were on sale. Ate a few handfuls of them and now they are in my bag to take to work and put in the drawer to share with Becca. Watched part of the Facebook Live from 24hr fitness with Mica and I think she said that Christian will be there next Wed at 3PM so will tune into that one too.  Almost finished with my third bottle of 24oz and will go get more to really shoot for my 120oz of water and actually track it on my fitness pal. After my tea in the first bottle of water then BCAA in the second bottle this one and the last 2 will be straight water with nothing in it. Charging my headphones now as the battery went dead this morning and I put a pair of corded headphones in my bag just in case that happens again or I decide not to use the bluetooth. Until my headphones died I was listening to XM radio 90's on 9.

Down 3# for the week and also for the month. Felt good to get back into the gym and lift again today. Decided to check my e-mail between sets and saw next weeks work schedule has been published so I can plan on getting in 5 days of workouts 2 Cardio days and 3 strength days. I get to go to church at home on Sunday morning since I work 12:15-6 then the other 4 days Mon, Tues, Fri and Sat I work 5AM-11AM for truck on Mon and Fri and second day stock Tues and Sat. Bought a new water bottle just in case this one gets cracked from being dropped from the blue boats at work or from a dumbbell hitting it and knocking it over. 

Monday, December 26, 2016


Scale was up 3.1# for the week and down 1# for the month so will really try for a loss of 5# this month. Thinking about rejoining TOPS but with an online membership instead of a local chapter. Sent Christian an e-mail to see what he thinks of the idea since not sure I can do it on my own. So much has happened between holidays and getting sick I'm not sure I can do it alone. I might need that TOPS support but online and not a chapter since the meetings are in the evenings and I prefer to weigh in the mornings. Would rather not go back to my old chapter because they get off topic way too easy.

Merry Christmas!!! Down 1.8# for the month but up 2.3# for the week. Had a little too much to drink last night and I knew I would have a headache last night. Had fun though playing with snapchat after we opened gifts. Body fat for the week is down 0.2% and for the month is the same as it was at the start of the month.  Watching my snacks and eating today to have a good weigh in tomorrow morning. Will get it sent to Christian tomorrow morning early and will get my cardio workout in after I get off work. Later I'll pack a new workout outfit in my bag for tomorrow's Cardio session after work. Need to up my activity level again to level 2 since I'm back to 100% well again.

Saturday, December 24, 2016


Merry Christmas Eve!!! Down 2.9# for the month now but up 1.2# for the week so watching my sweets tonight and watching my snacking tomorrow and I should be OK for weigh in on Monday morning. Had to redo my nails as they were chipping earlier this week and have the top coat left to put on. Will get in the gym Monday before or around noon to get my Cardio workout in then my 3 lifting days this week. I'm so ready to get back into the gym after a 3 week layoff due to illness.

Friday, December 23, 2016


Feeling a lot better and will try and do without Mucinex for today. Still 3.7# down for the month still hoping to get to 5# down for the month by Monday's weigh in. Plan on redoing my nails either this afternoon or tomorrow afternoon haven't decided yet.  Had my best steps day yesterday and will try and do it again today and get in over 11K steps.

Thursday, December 22, 2016


Getting ready for work the longest shift of the week but that's OK cause I just have a 3 hour shift tomorrow then 5 hour and 45 min shift on Saturday. Feeling better just have 1 more dose of antibiotic but will continue Mucinex for a couple more days just to be sure. For the month I'm down 3.7# hope to be 5# down to have someone at the gym take my pic with a 5# weight like Christian and Mica have their in studio clients do but I thought it would be fun to do it myself.

Wednesday, December 21, 2016


Tired after an early morning but can't lay down for half hour at least since I don't lay down for an hour after I eat. Feeling a lot better and plan on being back in the gym first thing or when the schedule allows next week. Think I'll go sit on my bed and play with my Ipad the rest of the evening now that everything on the computer is done and I have over 10K steps for the day.

Been blogging every day since I put it in my most used bookmarks and can't close the tab until I post something anything just something.  Plan for 2017 is to write something even it it's a couple of lines every day. Work 5AM-11AM tomorrow then 11AM-7:45 on Thursday then noon to 3PM on Friday and Saturday 6AM-11:45 then get ready for Christmas on my dad's side. Feeling better but still not well enough to workout just yet but will get up and walk in place while watching Kathie Lee and Hoda on the fourth hour of Today.

Scale down 0.5# from last week and for the month I'm down 4.1# so a much better month than I've ever had since I started working with Christian. Letting my ear treatment drain a little more before taking the cotton ball out then will get a shower.  After my shower I'll use the new callus cream I got from Avon this morning.

Sunday, December 18, 2016


Didn't get to use the ear wax remover last night or this morning so will here after a while.  Think I'll go back to the Lippy for when I work longer than a few hours and church. Feeling better but not 100% yet. Scale is still down for the week and month which ends next Sunday.  Might go on Youtube and find a walking video to do tomorrow if I'm feeling better.

Saturday, December 17, 2016


Used the ear wax remover last night and will do it again here in a few. Will leave it set with my head tilted for 5 minutes. Decided last night to go ahead and do my nails they turned out pretty good and I love the color.  As much as I love the LipSense lip color and gloss I bought some Cover Girl Outlast and will start wearing it since I got kinda bored with using the lippy every day and couldn't use any chapstick/lip balm.

Friday, December 16, 2016


Got some antibiotic from the doctor this morning and am continuing Mucinex and using ear wax remover to help the stuffy ear. Haven't tried the ear wax remover yet but will a little later tonight.  Bought some red nail polish with sparkles and used the base coat now and will do the color then top coat in a few.

Thursday, December 15, 2016


Scale down 1.6# from Monday not the way I want to lose weight by being sick and not feeling like eating much of anything.  Still coughing but not as bad as yesterday but the day is still young yet. 

Wednesday, December 14, 2016


Called the doctor this morning and can't get in until Friday morning so going to rest for the rest of the day then when I can tomorrow. Hoping to be back in the gym by Monday but only after my doctor's appointment and after I see the work schedule on Saturday afternoon determine my workout schedule if there is one next week.

Tuesday, December 13, 2016


Went and got some sinus rinse and cough medicine this afternoon. Going to call the doctor in the morning after my big coughing fit after lunch. Taking the rest of the week off until I'm truly better.  Was glad to have had 2 days off but wish it could've been longer to truly rest and get better.

Monday, December 12, 2016


Scale was down 1.4# this week from last but body fat was up 0.4% for the week. Woke up around 6:20 coughing so finally around 6:30 got up and took cough medicine then went back to bed for a little while longer. Almost finished with my tea then will get some Emergen-C and drink it before more water with Green Tea in it. Taking today off again from my workouts and will take clothes just in case I feel up to it tomorrow afternoon but might want to take this week off too and hit it hard hopefully next week when I'm feeling better. Listening to The Jillian Michael's Show Podcast since I just have 1 podcast left to listen to but have several Jillian show's left to listen to.

Sunday, December 11, 2016


Finally printed my workouts for Dec and created the last 2 templates so now I'm ready for the week that is if I'm feeling up to it tomorrow morning. Christian thinks I'm ready to try and workout this week but I'll see how I feel in the morning. Scale is down 1# from last week with today left before weigh in tomorrow morning. Feeling better but might take another nap here in an hour or so since I don't lay down for an hour after I eat to let my food digest a little better.

Saturday, December 10, 2016


Still not feeling good but off tomorrow so will print and get my last 2 templates created then for my workouts. Next week's workouts will all depend on how I feel on Monday morning. Bought a new mouse this late morning/early afternoon and it's the next model up from my old one. Just got my meds all ready for the week and have my check in e-mail ready just need to copy it from the word document then paste it to an e-mail draft to send. Also bought some more sinus medicine at Wal-Mart when I got off work at the same time I bought my new mouse.

Friday, December 9, 2016


Feeling a little better but still not well enough to go workout so hope to be better by Monday so I can get my workouts in next week Scale is down 0.5# from Monday so at least I didn't gain with just 1 workout this week.  Won't know til tomorrow late morning/early afternoon what my work schedule is for next week so I can plan my workouts. Will put the last 2 workouts into templates tomorrow and will print them all tomorrow afternoon as well.  In a while going to go and lay down again and play on my I pad.

Thursday, December 8, 2016


Monday is the last time that I'll cover for someone at work since no one could bother to cover for me today so I could have my second day off this week. Came down with a sinus cold last night and woke up with a stuffy ear but still going to work this afternoon anyways.

Wednesday, December 7, 2016


Still don't know if I have to work tomorrow or not my manager called the guy to see if he could cover but as of 5PM didn't get a call back yet as she had to leave a message. If I don't hear anything from her by 9:30PM then I'll plan on working 12:45-8PM tomorrow and have had only 1 day off. Coming down with a sinus cold so took some medicine and might take the rest of the week off from the gym. Watching Hairspray Live on NBC since I've never seen it at all before.

Tuesday, December 6, 2016


Bought some ink for my printer this afternoon but haven't printed out my workouts yet and haven't gotten the other 2 templates created yet. Burned 402 calories this afternoon and not sure about Thursday yet but will find out tomorrow afternoon before I leave at 5PM.  Reached 10K steps already and will have 11K or so before bedtime. Downloaded the XM app for my phone and listened to it while working out this afternoon and now listening to the NASCAR station waiting for the show that Kenny Wallace is on.

Monday, December 5, 2016


Got my new stuff earlier this evening and so far have 2 of 4 templates made and will create the others tomorrow evening. Unless I decide here in a little while to open the site again and finish the templates. Can't print them since I'm out of ink so will do that tomorrow when I get off will get more ink and print when I get home. Will skip 1 Cardio day this week and do Chest/Triceps/Shoulders tomorrow and then on Thursday Legs/Abs and Back/Biceps then Friday will be Cardio only. Missed so much of The Voice tonight that I'm going to skip this week of voting and vote next week.

Sunday, December 4, 2016


Listening to my reactivated XM radio and listening to the NASCAR channel for a little while then will decide on something else. Have to listen tomorrow evening to Kenny Wallace on his show. Watching Chiefs Falcons on TV. Been thinking for a while about reactivating my XM account so did it this morning. Waiting for my new stuff so I can get the templates on created for December.  With 1 day left to weigh in I'm down 2# for the week and body fat is down 0.2% also for the week. I'm back to where I was 2 weeks ago before Thanksgiving and before my monthly visitor came earlier this past week. Working on my second 24oz of water today with Arizona Green Tea liquid mix in it then will get Immuni-C and put a packet in my water. 

Saturday, December 3, 2016


Got home from work around 11:30 then changed clothes and took a nap for almost 2 hours but still tired so as soon as I publish this I'll go lay down for a little while longer.  Off tomorrow and Monday so should be able to write a lot more. Down 0.6# from Monday with still another day to go and watch before weigh in on Monday. Already posted to Fat Secret website and Biggest Loser Club and have my check in e-mail ready to send all but food journal which isn't completed yet. Put the link to this blog in the e-mail so if he wants to Christian can check on my daily thought process. Will get in 4 days of workouts this week starting with Cardio on Monday then Chest/Shoulders/Triceps on Tuesday, Quads/Hamstrings on Wed, and Back/Biceps on Friday late morning. The previous line is subject to change depending on what my new workouts for the month of Dec are titled.

Friday, December 2, 2016


Got my Cardio workout in this late morning/early afternoon. Let my A300 charge completely and it took a little over an hour to do so. Thought for a little bit that I'd get a low battery message but never did so charged it anyways since it was really low. Won't know my work schedule until sometime tomorrow late morning/early afternoon so then I can plan my workout schedule then and hope to have my new month's workouts this weekend to start on it next week.

Thursday, December 1, 2016


Rest day today unplanned until last Saturday after I saw my work schedule. No time before as I have to be there by 11:30AM and don't get off until 8PM.  Scale up 0.5# but body fat is down 0.1% so need to watch my sweets today and I'm sure my monthly visitor is coming so that might be cause as well for the gain.  Tomorrow is Cardio only day then the weekend off from the gym and will plan next week's workouts Saturday afternoon sometime.
