Thank you for stopping by to perv on my blog, as I fight myself to change my old habits and make new ones to get fit. I don't get it right all the time, but I'm still here and I'm still working at it.

right... my gawds, this WL thing is really kicking my ass.

You know, months and months ago I was lamenting how great it would be to not have to go to work, and stay home, and "cook" all my meals, eat right, go to the gym... yadda yadda yadda...

well here I am. All freshly moved to the US, no job, husband at the office all day and a world of exercise dvd's... yet no motivation to do them. RAWRRRRRR

Regardless, over my stomach bug from last week and now I need to get started on getting back into my routine of yoga in the mornings, and getting some more things going for the evenings.


Saturday - gym for 30 hard minutes on the elliptical
Sunday - 1 hour of hard housecleaning
Monday.... tbd....

This has been getting better... more a function of the kitchen being CLEAN!!! HURRAY... we now have a great place to cook and prep food for dinners. I baked chicken and have made a few dishes now. We are eating out less and less, and that is great news. Now we need a better routine for the rest of life and things will start to fall into place.

Okay...that's all for today. Back in the saddle.

It must be really hard to move to a new place and not have the opportunity to meet people through work. Have you considered finding a group exercise class so that you could meet some like-minded people and get a break from the DVD's but still workout?

Thanks Karen, I wish that I could, but we are a single vehicle family right now so I am pretty much trapped at home. Once a week I drop hte husband off and go to the gym in the daytime. But its not often enough to feel like I have a life.

Fingers crossed that this changes soon. I try to get out a couple of evenings to the gym.

I know... excuses, excuses... but I refuse to buy a car until I have a job.

Soon enough! Right, good things come to those who wait. :)

For now, its gym in the livingroom.

Glad you're feeling better.

Eating out less will make a big difference.
