Almost back to normal

Christmas was fun - good to see the folks again.

I was able to hit my mom's gym twice while down in TX, and while I didn't get in the best workout either time, I still got my 20 minutes of cardio coupled with some weight lifting done. Turns out that though her gym is 3 or 4 times the size of mine, the free-weights aren't readily available. They're in these little workout rooms. I don't know if you have to be in a class to use them or what, but neither of us had the details and I was short on time so I just used the nautilis machines. It was fine.

I'm really looking forward to next week already - I just want a full week of normalcy. I don't *need* routine like a little kid or anything, but when I'm trying to focus on my weight loss goals, the lack of distraction makes things much easier.

Anyway, sorry about the crappy post here - I'm pressed for time as I'm about to dash into a meeting at work. I'll expand on things later. For now, I'm at 280.4 this morning. So getting to 275 by Wednesday looks to be unlikely at best. I'd still like to focus on it and get it done by next Friday though, so that's the currently re-estimated goal.

Atleast you put some effort in! That's way more than I did over Christmas!

Happy Weight Loss,

Linda ;)

I'm totally with you on the need for routine. Not like I have a timeline on my chalkboard that I can reference before making my next move, but an overall idea of how I want my day to go (and the ability to mostly control it) is highly beneficial in this journey! You never can tell about Wednesdays goal!! ;o)

I ditto Linda and Dani - great job on working out during Christmas (sounds like a NSV to me), and I so need routine, too! Best of luck on getting back on track and reaching your goal.

p.s. Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog AND for becoming my SECOND follower. I see you already have a great following, but I added myself, too. As a new blogger, it makes me feel good to know I'm not talking to myself anymore. Ha!!!

BTW - I love your blog description. Very clever and to the point.

I hear ya on the normalcy front! I do better when I keep to a steady routine. Good that you got in a workout!!

I've been catching up with reading blogs so I didn't know you were in Texas for Christmas. What part? I live in Houston. Are you from TX originally?

Hey Tena,
My parents live in Austin, TX. They've been there for 7 or 8 years now, after hopping after a few jobs for my mom's career. I've never lived there, but it's a nice place to visit in winter.

Glad your getting back to a normal routine!!
