Trying to turn a new leaf....

I've lost 5 lbs. so far, in about a week. This always happens and then it slows down but that's okay.

Today I started doing yoga/pilates On Demand. It was an easy class but I wanted to start that way. It was meant for those 50+ and I'm not there yet!! Give me a couple of years. ;-)

After that I cleaned my bathroom, dusted and vacuumed the upstairs. I got all cleaned up and then decided to shovel the patio. My dh is obsessed with getting rid of snow. I think it's because he doesn't want it to melt tomorrow and flood the basement. He asked my youngest to do it but, of course, he hasn't been home. He slept over one friend's on Fri. night and another last night. I decided to save myself the aggravation and do it myself. It was good exercise so I didn't mind. My dh will be p*ssed but too bad. I'm capable.

Anyway, I'm going to see if I can bring myself to do the yoga or pilates a couple of times a week at home instead of paying the $120 for the class. I just can't afford it right now and I hated the time (6 p.m. on Thurs. night). First off, I don't get home until 5:25 and second, it is the only night my hairdresser can take me. So every 4 weeks I was running out of pilates and up 30 min. for my hair. No more.

I thought I could do the treadmill on Mon. Wed. & Fri. or Sat. My oldest ds' band practices in my room on Tues. & Thurs. So I can do the pilates or yoga on those nights and on Sunday. Sounds like a plan to me!

You are the second person I've come across that mentioned fitness on demand. I am so jealous. I wish my cable provider offered that!

I love doing yoga, my body always feels so good, but like you the yoga classes are so hard to get to after work- I am impressed with your motivation, keep up the good work!!!

you can do it! I know you can.
So you are shoveling snow and we are mulching leaves with the windows open. Wanna trade for awhile? NOT!
I moved the treadmill to the living room. No excuses. I am just going to have to try and wrestle my hubby for it.
