Back on the workout waggon!

I was pushing myself too much with all the prep for my sister's wedding and getting my house ready for guests, so I stopped working out in the couple weeks leading up to the wedding. Then I was housesitting, then I was sick, then I went out of town. So I haven't worked out at all in at least 5 weeks. So I told myslef now that I am feeling (a bit) better, I would get back on the waggon this week and be strong. I would be working out 4 days a week again and watching my eating.

I didn't do badly in that time. I'm up only 1 lb in that time when I am thrilled about considering I was not working out at ALL and wasn't really watching what I was eating. But I'm trying to watch the calories again. I go to California in 7 weeks and I'd like to drop 15 lbs before then. I know that is ambitious, but I'm going to try. 10 lbs would make me happy and the 15 would make me thrilled.

I've worked out on Monday and Tuesday so far this week. Today will be my errand day then I will work out Thursday and Friday. It's too hot anymore for me to go for walks outside. Maybe if I wake up early enough on the weekends I can. But this morning when I left for work at 6:30 it was already 74 degrees. It's only going to get worse. We are supposed to be at 109 this weekend. I hate it, I hate it, I hate it. Why did I move here again? Ugh.

I didn't know you had a blog! Now I can keep up with you this way. I haven't worked out in over a month myself. Shortly before the movers came at the end of May I had gone once or twice, but not since then. I can't wait to get a new routine going when we get things all settled here. Keep it up...we can be each other's cheerleaders! You're looking wonderful.
