Back in Action


I'm happy to report that I've got my ass back in gear!  

With the new year, I decided that I'd join a new gym.  I loved Gold's but both my favorite instructors left, so I had no motivation to go back there without them.  So, I joined another place in town.  It's a bit more pricey, but I'm excited about some of the cool bonuses.  1) they offer Barre class - I've been dying to take this, so now I could take it everyday if I wanted.  2) the package I chose comes with a 1-hour personal training session each week!  and 3) the 42 day challenge, which I'll be participating in.  Basically, its extra training (3 1-hour sessions a week) plus meal plans and motivation to get back in shape.  I need it...my assessment said I'm 33% Fat - eek!  

So, I started back on my schedule on Monday!  Already I feel more energized and ready to take on the day.  I'm actually tired now at night, so I go to bed a better time (no more late movies).  However, I still haven't broken my sleeping in desire I developed over Christmas break.  Thankfully, I can get up at 8 and still make classes! Woohoo!  But, I'll get back to my 7:20 wake up soon.  Baby steps.

I have motivation to eat healthier since I'm working out...I want to give my body good fuel so I can kick ass!  

I have energy to do things around the house...I'm not being a couch potato as much.  

I feel happier too!  I hated being lazy and feeling blah.

I love the feeling of having done something.  I've gone Monday through today and I know it.  You discover those muscle you forgot about when you go to sit down or get up! Feel the burn! LOVE IT!

Tomorrow is my first day of personal training and then the 42 day challenge starts on Monday!  I'm so excited.  Let's hope I can still walk - haha!!

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…

Farewell 34

I can't believe my birthday is tomorrow!  My #35daysofdonating challenge has been so fun and rewarding - it feels like it went by so fast.  I loved receiving input from my friends and family about organizations that mean something to them.  I even learned about organizations I didn't know existed.  In the last 34 days (35 tomorrow) I hope I've made a difference somewhere.  I know I didn't get to donate to all the suggested places, and I'm sorry if I missed one you wanted!  I wish funds were endless and I could do this every day forever!!!
