Hmmmm.....

I am moving this weekend, so before I tear the computer apart and stuff it into a box for who knows how long, I wanted to post something........... Not sure what.. but I will think of something. Hmmmmmmm.......

I guess I will just update you on my workout routine.

I told you before that my friend Wendy and I are following a weight lifting plan from the book "The new Rules of Lifting for Women" and we have finished two weeks (she is one week ahead of me) I really like this plan. I only lift three days a week, Monday, Wednesday and Friday. My workout consists of two sets of five different workouts. When you time it and do it just the way the book tells you to, I am done with in about 20 min. I know, nice huh? I can already feel a difference as well. and Wendy said the same thing.

I am still running on the treadmill, which does not bother me to much. I am hoping once we are in the house and the time changes, so it is not so dark when I get up to leave, that I will start pounding the road again. For now I am content and happy with the treadmill. Last week I was sick, I only logged 6 miles. As of tonight I have logged 13 miles. I plan on running 5 tomorrow and then about the same on Saturday.

I have cut out almost all sweets, which is really hard for me. I have a very large sweet tooth. Tomorrow is my little Morgies birthday and we had cake and Ice cream tonight (moving tomorrow) and I had about three bites of my cake and couldn't finish, and I didn't even try the ice cream. I was sick. Really.. I was. I am trying to decide if that is a good thing or bad. (I really know the answer)

One last thing.. My new Running shoes gave me a blister the first couple of times I wore them. My blister is almost gone. yeah!

Ugh... I wish I could have a good relationship with the treadmill. I'm glad it's working for you! ;) I'll have to check out that book... it sounds like a good system. Good luck with the move!

Janice you are awesome. I was trying to do the no sweets thing to prepare for St. George, but I ended up going down on the Monday before because my mom found out she has colon cancer and had to have surgery. I have been eating crap all week. Tomorrow is the race. I hope I am not doomed. Good luck on your move! So this is the second move in 3 months?? Yuck. It will be great to get settled in your new house. Post some pics, I would love to see it. Good job on the weights. I love the feeling of being strong. Have a great weekend!

I hope your move went smoothly! I'm having blister issues, too, and I am wearing those overprice Wright socks that say "no blisters, guaranteed!" Grrr
