Exerciiiiiiiise the Demons!

Today was such a long day! I woke up at 4:00am to make sure James got up in time for work and ended up in the living room talking to him. Then I decided to put a movie on Netflix. (Never Forever--pretty good Indie movie. I recommend it for people that like their movies a little offbeat.) ....and I never made it back to sleep! It was a nice little morning though. I started doing some work at 6:30am and then at 7:30, I decided to take a walk... like a real exercise kind of walk! I wore my shape-ups and a sports bra and a t-shirt and my new clearance Under Armor USMC jacket and James' Chicago Bears hat and my iPod. I ended up out there for a half hour. I walked down the road and around the corner to this desert park where there's a real oasis and a little path. I walked around the path and came home. It was fun and refreshing! 

I decided to give up sleeping in past 7:00am for Lent. It's a real problem for me and I think it will help with some stress and my exercise (more walks!).

Tonight I also took a little 15 min (3 mile) ride on our recumbent bike that's been parked in the living room collecting dust. I feel pretty good about myself tonight! I really want to see the scale start moving again.... oh, Bandster Hell....

Days to first fill: 21!

Have a good night everybody!


  1. We all go through Bandster Hell...I promise it will quickly pass. Post fill, it isn't easy by any means. So use this time practice good eating will be most beneficial post-fill.

  2. Way to go! You always feel so good after exercise. It's making yourself do it in the first place that is the problem. Ha! Good on you for doing it!

  3. That walk sounds nice. I love beautiful walks vs my living room machine walks. Great job!

  4. Great job with the walk! Bandster hell does suck...but it does eventually pass...promise. :)
