On My Way


I’m a sweaty, stinky mess, but I fought for every drop and every trace.

*pauses to get water*

Four days of exercise this week! Yes!  Those BeFit people are geniuses (although their cardio video is a nightmare, so I had to switch to dance workout vids…and yoga isn’t my speed, so I used a ballet stretch video and some other stretch video). Thank God they gave us that rest day. No way would I have been able to work out on Day 3. My thighs were so sore, I wobbled on my way down the stairs. But, it passed. (Good lesson there.) The pain just means I’m getting stronger. I hadn’t done any such workout in close to a year, so the pain was expected…and it wasn’t as bad as it was when I started working out last year (my sister harassed me to go to the gym when I was with her).

So, yeah, this week has been good in terms of exercise, but it wasn’t great food-wise…not terrible, but not deliberately healthy…not to mention the junk thrown in.

All these are steps on the journey, and I’m kinda afraid to say it, but I think I’m learning. I feel as if I’m actually going to do this…as if it’s not something I’m trying on for size, but the rest of my life. (I like my pun, too! :p)

In other news, my sister (not the awesome one who harassed me to go to the gym) just offered me sour Skittles…she’s awesome, too, but I had to refuse…Sour, chewy candy is epic, so that took effort. Teehee.

Okay, to shower and beyond! No more rambling. 🙂

Happy Weekend, folks!



Get Moving


(Before I get into this week’s challenge, I have some good news. Even though the scale thinks (teehee) I’m two pounds heavier, I must have done something right, since I lost another inch off my waist last week. My capris are still way too tight, though. I’d sure love to say goodbye to the now inevitable muffin top.)

Soooooo…this week’s challenge is…get up off my butt and do something. 

I kinda exercised last week, but I haven’t been deliberate or dedicated about it. My (epic) sister told me about this workout programme I should try. It’s called BeFitin90 or something like that, and they have some 90-day thing. I haven’t tried it yet, and I’m not promoting it or anything. This is just my challenge: to find something and stick to it, no excuses.

I really should have started today, but that didn’t work out. The cool thing about it being 90 days is that I have to be fit enough to resume teaching dance to some youngsters by then. Some moves, you can’t explain without demonstrating, and I’d rather not be leaping in my current state.

We’ll see how this goes. What new thing are you doing this week? All the best!
