Making Friends with the Treadmill

I had quite a stretch where I didn’t go to the gym. If I did go to the gym, I had no goal or purpose so my workouts weren’t super effective and I didn’t push myself very hard. I’ve struggled over the past month or so, uncomfortable looking in mirrors because I don’t like what…

Home Cardio Workout

I have been going through my emails and have a ton of workout emails to go through. Since I haven’t been able to get to the gym much lately and work has been slow, I feel like quick home workouts are my best bet. This one from Popsugar Fitness looks nice and promising.   Warm…

Arms and Shoulders – 4/21/18

Yesterday, I journeyed back to the gym after what felt like a very long time. I’m feeling like I need to do some major work on my arms and shoulders to get ready for the warmer weather that’s popping up. 10 minute warm up on eliptical Rotating all these exercises for three sets of 15:…

Leg Day – 4/14/2018

I search for leg day and I see all these memes about how leg day is this person’s favorite. No thank you. Not for me. I dread leg day, although I know it’s important and it’s where a lot of my future content with my body lies. Maybe it’s because I’ve fallen out of it…

Chest – 3/12/2018

I’ve been very sporadic going to the gym. I went a few days a week ago to do shoulders, cardio and I did a yoga class on Monday. I was talking to a woman I met at yoga class and she was talking about how hard it is to get back into the weights part…

Arms & Cardio – 3/5/2018

Earlier this week, I went to the gym for about an hour of cardio on the elliptical. It felt pretty good until the end. I was so ready for it to be done. Even with an episode of The Crown on my phone, I was getting tired and ready to not be there anymore. I…

Shoulders on a Tuesday – 2/27/2018

I revisited this workout I posted nearly a year ago for shoulders and triceps. I went to the gym with my hub though and we wanted to get home before the baby had to go to sleep so the workout looks different than the one posted in April. And when we got home, the in…

Back at it

I’ve managed to make my way back to the gym after several months of separation. After a few stressful months, I just felt very “ugh” and felt a bit desperate to get in some gym time. After only a few workouts, it’s done wonders for my confidence and I feel ridiculously better. My biggest downfall…

It’s Not Over Yet

So my goal date of June 19 came and went, and here I am, still at 145 pounds. That’s 10 pounds short of my 135 goal. But overall, I’m very happy with where I am. I feel like I look great, my husband has no complaints and I’m just enjoying my time focusing on my…

Gym Drought Continues – 6/2/2017

This week continues my gym drought. I haven’t gotten to the gym in aaaaaages. I did however do a short arm workout and a little cardio at work on Tuesday before returning to my desk, feeling a bit guilty about not being at my desk, even though there wasn’t much work to do. I’ve been…

Broke Past 150 – 5/30/17

This morning I was pleasantly surprised when I stepped on the scale and it no longer said 151… It said 148! Whoop whoop whoop! I’m so happy, especially since I haven’t made it to the gym since my last failed arm workout. I have been going for walks with the baby and puppy whenever the…

Wednesday 5/17 – Arms (Sort Of)

Wednesday night I went to the gym and did a warm up on the treadmill for 10 minutes. Then I started doing some arms, bicep curls, overhead tricep extensions and incline bicep curls. Shortly into my arm workout though, I got a text from my husband that the baby had woken up and he couldn’t…
