My Apologies

Karrie pointed out that I haven't blogged in a whole week. I'm sorry and please forgive me. I will try to do better this week. As I mentioned in my last post, this week has been incredibly busy and I have been rather preoccupied with work commitments. But that's all over now, so I should be returning to my regularly scheduled blog posting.

In the midst of the chaos, I did find time to make it to two BodyPump classes. I got up and met Jennifer and Karrie at BodyPump at 6:00(!!) on Wednesday morning (I still feel a little sleep deprived from that since I had to work at nine and didn't get to go home and take a nap like Karrie did) and then I went with Karrie again on Thursday evening. I haven't been ellipticizing at home this week, but I moved around some heavy furniture and I've done some strenuous work in the yard, clearing out brush and tearing out part of a fence. That has to count for something, right?

I can tell that I'm less stressed out when I exercise regularly. But ironically, it's the first thing that I cut out when I'm stressed and feel like I have too much to do in too little time. This week, I was so stressed out, I didn't even do much knitting, and that's something I always make time to do. I plan to get back into the routine of BodyPump and ellipticizing this coming week. Posting helps keep me accountable, so I will try to keep up better on that too.

you're back! we missed you. I'd say yard work totally counts as some kind of workout. I guess Karrie can't make Body Pump Tuesday night, so we're going tonight at 5:30 - maybe she has already told you this??? Anyway I'm pretty sure I'll be there Thursday too, or maybe I'll see you at the gym another time this week. My goal of going 20 of the 31 days this month will not be met since I can only go 18 days this month if I make it to the gym every day for the rest of the month. Oh well, I'm sure that's way more days than I've gone any other month for a long time, so it's still an accomplishment - especially if I can get there the majority of the rest of the days this month.
