Good week

Good finish to the week. Of course had today off from work.  Did a Tabata class this morning, got the car washed (2 times, 1st didn't get it really clean) and got a quick 1 mile walk in (walked home from the little village store when we stopped after putting out Easter eggs at the cemeteries). 10,000 steps by 3 o'clock is fantastic.

Good Days

Had a good weekend with my Husband. We took a walk on the beach each day, Saturday at Lake shore reservation in Perry (some nice steep stairs) and Sunday in Fairport.  We froze on Sunday.  Was looking for beach glass so I can try and make some jewelry. I was pleasantly surprise on the scale this morning. Taking extra classes this week for a good push for the weigh in. Boot camp today and will go again on Wednesday and Tabada on Friday morning since I don't have to work.
Hope everyone is doing good.

Not feeling it this week. But I did go to my Boot camp class today.  I hope I snap out of it soon.

New class

Took a weight lifting class this morning, then it was off to St. Gabe's craft show. Enjoyed the afternoon with friends. And shoveling snow with my husband.

Was not feeling very motivated to exercise when I came home from work today. BUT, I did go for a hour walk. Ended up being a little over 3 1/2 miles.
Met hubby at Cabana's for dinner. That was my first trip to the restaurant. Probably won't be eating there to often, can't afford to eat out once a week.

We have had a couple of long days with my father's calling hours and funeral.  But I have done good with food, but have gotten very little exercise. So to clear my head, my husband and I went for a walk at Perry's Lakeshore reservation.

Tough week ahead

I think week will be a tough week for me on food and exercise. My father passed away this morning, so I know with the emotions and everything it will be tough. I just need to focus on my family but not over eat or eat to many wrong things.
