Cool Fit, Forty...something, and Fabulous.....

I think I will start my journal thread under the the success stories section of this Forum. I have been on this diet journey since 2008 and have had some successes and failures. I continue to have my ups and downs, but see myself as a success story as long as I keep trying my best. I will post highlights of my day here along with a link to my body blog that has the details of the day at hand.

Default One of them days....Agh!!!!

I am having one of those days that we all have now and then. I am pretty blah today. One thing that helps me feel better is exercise. As much as I hate to pull myself off the couch, when I do I feel so much better. Today was suppose to be my rest day...no gym. I train quite heavy...with weights 4 times a week and I do cardio 2 days a week for 30 minutes on my non lifting days. But, tonite I am going to do some cardio because I am feeling mentally stressed from some personal family challenges. Exercise is great for endorphin release!! So off to the gym I go

Well, the Olympia is right around the corner and I am up a few pounds. I took a diet break all this week and the next and have been having too much fun. I got on the scales and was up to 140...yikes. What the heck...lol. So today I have been good as gold and I plan to be for the next week because I refuse to be walking around the expo or the Olympia shows looking "thick".

I am off UD2 for a few weeks, but I better watch may calories a bit more and keep my protein up.

I am staying at a hotel off the strip that has a fitness center. It has all the dumbells I need and a bench. That is really all I need to keep my training going through the week in Vegas. I plan to train Monday and Tuesday, off Wednesday and maybe Thursday (I will be visiting a friend in Utah those days) and then I plan to train on Friday. Off Saturday and Sunday...then back to my UD2 diet on Monday.

Default The Fedex Guy

I always find a person that I just seem to connect with out in cyberland. I am sure I will connect with someone here as I continue to participate on this forum. I would like to share a special connection that I have made since January of this year.
