Why is it the weekend is here...I have a list of things I want to do, and I just can't find the "want" to want to get them done. I have the paint all ready to go and I just don't want to be painting. Why can't I just get it done and over with. I won't have to worry about it! It is a dreary cloudy day,perfect day for house work right!!!

I have found a pancake breakfast to go to, I found a winter sports swap to browse around at and I found a movie to take the kids to.....Now I am at home,there is nothing holding me back!!! There is nothing left for me to do to keep me from that brush!!!!

So...I guess off to painting I go!!!

Trying out some new stuff!

Well, since I have been going to the gym,I thought I probably should start eating better. Duh,right!! So, I have started drinking the diet pops. I am terrible when it comes to pop. The more I try to cut back the more I want it and crave it. It is so hard to stay away from it. Well, I decided I better start doing something or my time at the gym is a waiste. So here I sit drinking a new found love, a Diet Pepsi!

Another thing I am tying out is that Yoplus Digetstive yogurt stuff. It isn't too bad! I have had better,but then I have had worse. I guess the part that keeps me eating it is that it is healthier than what I am used to.

If I keep all this healthy eating and keeping with the gym....Results will follow. By camping season I will be willing to go out on the bike trails with our friends who like to do those things. I won't be afraid that I am holding them up,I will be able to keep up with them!

Today at the gym....
Walked 20 minutes,incline on 4.5 at a speed of 3.5 distance 1 mile.
Biked 20 minutes, Level 2 at a speed of 10.5 distance 5 miles
I worked my legs today. There are a total of 6 machines I used, reps 3 and in those reps I did 10 each,so a total of 30 of each machine.Lowest weight used was 25 and the highest was 110.

I am on my 3rd bottle of water...That is big for me!!!

I am on a role!!!!

Waiting on Weight!!!

How come it takes so much energy and strength to lose a dang pound. It has been about a month that I started working on exercises and really watching my food intake. So...I weighed myself before I left the Gym today and I am up 2 pounds than when I started the darn place! How???? So, I am kind of disappointed. Make that really disappointed!!! I do feel better about myself reguardless of what the scale says,but it would have been nice to see a decrease...Not the increase I found when I looked down. I just have to keep going. Keep drinking the water and making those small changes that I have been doing. Soon enough I will start seeing results. I just have to keep telling myself not to give up!

I went back up in my bedroom today and started painting again....It needs to get done and the only way I am going to get through it is going back up there. I can't wait until it is all done.It is going to look so nice and Springy!!!Fresh new bedding and curtains. So I gotta keep plugging along...Spring will be here before you know it and there won't be a whole lot of time inside....

Making a comeback!!!!

Well, it has been over a month since I last wrote. I told myself...I better get back on here before too much time passes! I think winter is finally giving up the fight and moving back to where it came from. It has been beautiful out the last week or so. I guess that is the reason my spirits are on the rise. Winter can get so long here in the U.P.

Nothing really has changed since my last post. The house projects kind of came to a hault because I just ran out of energy. So, I have a half painted bedroom which is on my to do list. I had some major set backs with the hall way. But thats a story for another time! But things are coming along...Slowly,but surely!

I have made progress in the weightloss area though. Which I am proud to say! pounds lost as of yet. But Nick and I started the gym last week. We haven't missed a day yet. I love it there. I do feel much better,and I am eating much better. SO hopefully we will see some changes in the clothing part. I hope to see smaller sizes in my future. And maybe 20lbs from now...I will see a new tattoo in my future~!!!
