That Dang Comfort Food

Today, my body gave me a stern warning to quit putting junk into it.  I have not been doing a good job with restraint from comfort food.  This combined with my lack of exercise has sparked a revolt by my entire gastrointestinal tract.  I guess it’s time to start listening to my body again.  No excuses.  Thanks for having my back, and it’s ok to hold my feet to the fire about straying off track.  I guess I might as start that countdown again tomorrow.
Much nub and fitness,

Revisiting Portion Control

Today was a better day for portion control.  I need to get a handle on my food/drink intake, since limited calories are being burned.  Please let me know if you have any suggestions on exercise to do while dealing with a back and neck injury.  I’m feeling a bit sluggish.  I’m sure tomorrow will be a better day because I’m getting back into my normal routine.  I’m done with the comfort food.  Ok, not forever done, but finished with overindulging.  I also plan to make sure that I am getting a solid night’s sleep each evening to let my body heal.  I’m getting back on the path.  Thanks for believing in me!
Fitness or bust!

Pardon the Interruption

I apologize for the delay.  No excuses.  I need to get back on the blogging and fitness wagon.  So much has happened.  I’ve had my email and Facebook accounts hacked.  I’ve gone on vacation, including a cruise.  I’ve gone through a break up and a car accident.  Whew, I got tired just typing all of that.  The vacation started off great with me attending spin classes in Atlanta that were beyond challenging.  The instructors managed to turn them into upper body workouts and had the entire class boogieing.  I even ate well on the cruise and was shocked at how many healthy options there were.  I did make it to the gym once, and it was beautiful to pedal to the tunes on my Ipod while looking out the window watching the ocean.

When the stress started, I initially lost my appetite.  As time passed, I’ve been fighting the urge to snack, and I’ve lost the battle some.  Comfort food was making a comeback, and I wasn’t in the gym.  That key lime cake was calling my name throughout it’s creation.  I licked beaters of batter, icing, then had nerve enough to eat some cake.  It was phenomenal, though.  Things got even more complicated when I was injured in a car accident.  My back and neck are injured, so the workouts are on hold.  I’ve got to be strong and turn away the delectable chocolate turtles (the undeniable best turtles in the world).  There are yummy munchies all over my mom’s house.  In my mind, I know that I have to be careful with what I’m eating, since I’m not working out.  The issue is getting my mind, my hands, and my mouth on the same page.  Hopefully, I’ll be back in the gym soon, but this is a test of willpower.  I’m determined to win.  I’m coming back to this daily blog, and I’m going to get myself together.  Feel free to keep me on my toes:)  Thanks for sticking with me!


Help! I’ve been hacked!

This day has been spent dealing with my Hotmail account being hacked.  I am having a terrible time getting assistance with accessing or closing that account.  Unfortunately, and email has been sent saying that I am broke, stranded in the UK without my passport or credit cards.  The crazy thing is not only am I now locked out of my email, someone is answering emails sent to me at that address.  Please do not contact me through hotmail.  If you know any tricks for dealing with this to actually get through to shut down the account and report the breach.  Please let me know.  I’m going to need a workout later to decrease some of this stress.  Take care.  I hope your day doesn’t include any drama like this 😉


60 Minute Spin

I rushed to the spin class, and anxiously looked around for a bike.  Unfortunately, the only one I saw was a bike right in the front by the instructor.  This bike seemed foreign…nothing like my now familiar bike in the Y.  I was too late to get it adjusted so, I kept hitting the seat even when I would stand.  That’s just a side note.  That class was a killer.  60 minutes of intensity.  That instructor kept saying that he didn’t want us to recover too much.  I must say I don’t think I could have taken another minute.  I am positive that I have never sweat that much in my life.  I did feel good at the end.  I faced my fears and went to a non-beginning 60 minute spin class at a new gym.  I survived my first workout day in Atlanta.  What was even more wild is my upper body was dying during that class.  We’ll see how I’m feeling tomorrow.  I have a strong suspicion there is some soreness waiting for me over the horizon.  One of my old trainers used to say, “pain is just weakness leaving the body.”  I need all of this weakness to go.
I hope you are having a great day, and thanks for all of the support.  20 days down.  1 day until it’s a habit.  Ok, I need to think of another way to do a countdown because I need more than 21 days 🙂
Much nub and fitness,
