Day Four

Made it to the gym again last night. I really didn't want to go (see - it's that temporary memory loss thing in full action again!). In fact, I was lying on the couch whining about it, until I realized that I should just get over myself. I intended to go for 30 minutes, and ended up staying for an hour. I did some run/walk intervals on the treadmill, and man, am I sore today! I could barely get out of bed.

One little mishap with some popcorn to report. It was homemade popcorn with bit of margarine that was shared by me and hubby last night. I figured that it wasn't the worst snack in the world to have, but I still feel guilty. Anyway - it's done. If I keep working hard, it shouldn't affect me too badly.

I need to start incorporating some strength training into my routine - but I don't want to get too ahead of myself. If I can get through the rest of this week at the gym, I'll start getting a bit fancy next week. Tricky menu day today - I don't have a lot of stuff pre-cooked, so I'll need to do a bit more planning. I should do some prep work before the gym, so that I can come home to some warm dinner.

Carolyn and Christy are doing incredibly well. Yay! You ladies are motivating me more than you can imagine! Thank you.

I seriously hope that this is it this time. I am finding a bit of momentum, and I hope that I can keep going. Correction - I will keep going.

good job doing an hour at the gym - surely that will more than take care of the popcorn!!

Hi Sonya,

I found your blog through a link on Grumpy Chair. I can certainly relate to your diet struggle and not wanting to go to the gym--I've been neglectful myself lately! But keep at it, and it will happen (and don't feel guilty about the popcorn!).

I also write about dieting, and I am a vegan chef, so you might like to stop by and take a peek at some of my healthy recipes if you're interested.

Best of luck with it!

sonya - well done on shifting your butt off to the gym. Do you have a slow cooker? I love mine. It's like have a personal chef. So much easier to let the food cook away all day than to come home and start messing around in the kitchen.

Why would you hire a coach? You don't play competitive sports or run marathons. What could a coach factory outlet do for you?Just as amateur and professional athletes who want to further their game work with a coach, business owners, managers and entrepreneurs can also further their game, or business and life, by working with of a professional coach outlet online. You can be good, very good at what you do, but there is always better. And to get to better, you need to make changes.Change doesn't just happen on its own. Change occurs when you take charge and actively work to make these changes. The three key ingredients to coach outlet change are vision, plan, and the motivation to make it happen.Some people go through work and life just existing.

They lack clear vision, the ability to conceptualize a goal or ambition. And without a vision, a dream, a goal, a target, coach outlet store onlinebags they aren't going anywhere.
