Mark Twain on Challenge

I have stayed on the wagon!

Much to my own surprise, I stayed on the fitness wagon. I did get pretty frustrated by the weight gain I experienced last week. But I stuck to it. I am determined not to stay in this body any longer. I find it really difficult to sneak time for working out in my schedule. That is the biggest challenge for me right now. My back is still not right and I work 10 hour shifts doing some pretty physical work. Who know that working in a grocery store would be so physically demanding? Let me tell you that I am a prety tired puppy at the end of my day and I struggle to either work out after or wake up early to go to the gym. I have stuck to my Biggest Loser workouts on the Wii. So, that is good. I just need to really get a reality check on prioritizing my day so I can get in to the gym at least 4 days a week. Today though, I went on a hike for the first time in months. It was awesome! I plan to go back to Mt. Tom tomorrow and do the whole road to the summit. I am "training" for a big hike I am going to do in the Spring with my friend Marge! We are going to do the 7 Sisters hike from the Summit House on Mt. Holyoke to Bear Mountain. I am excited- I have never completed the hike before so this will be a great thing to accomplish. That being the case, I need to get going with my lower body weight training! I did my research and I am going to get back on track with the Body For Life workouts. That means that I will need to get on the ball 3 days a week with the weights at the gym and the 4th day will be cardio at the gym. I plan on doing the other 2 days of cardio here at home. I figure that WiiFit and Biggest Loser games will suffice. Plus, I am going to hike the road on Mt Tom once a week. That is a lot- and will require that I get of my arse and stick to a schedule. I think it is time to post our dry erase board schedule thing in my workout area so I can track it all. I should get on that later. For now, I have to get ready to go to the gym! Later!
