Day Three

Results from yesterday: Weights (core) 45 minutes, Bike 4 miles, Treadmill 3 miles.

I am also happy to report that I am noticing a difference, even after just 2 1/2 days. :-)

However, I have a HUGE roadblock in front of me...leaving for vacation to Cancun and going to an all-inclusive resort. Yeah, all you can eat free food, free beer, free margaritas...

They do have a workout facility there and I plan on making daily use of it, as well as making healthy food choices while I'm there. Lots of fish, lean meats, veggies, and fruits. Wish I could take my protein powder with me. :-(

Let's see, projects yesterday. Cleaning up the house for the trip (love coming home to a clean refreshing), trimmed Kelso's nails and gave him his tick/flea treatment, laundry, and dinner. Yum, grilled salmon and steamed broccoli. Oh, and I got a new entertainment rack for the basement so I can organize my audio/visual equipment better. It was on sale for $30, originally $99. Will have to wait until after the trip to put it all together.

By the way, I do not know how my wife keeps up with everything AND have a part time job. Taking care of a house and the dog and keeping up with laundry, cleaning, and dishes...holy cow!!! I will no longer silently complain when I come home and there are dishes in the sink.

Pain. Working through pain right now...gosh, I've never been so sore it's woken me up several times at night before. Bleh. Hope that won't last long.

Well, I have a ton to do today, and class tonight. I'm not going to have time to work out after class tonight, so mowing the lawn today will have to suffice for my cardio workout.


  1. just wait until you have kids-then you will be even more amazed with our capabilities! :)

  2. you should take one or two ibuprofen or advil before bed. it really helps.

  3. I agree with the ibuprofen. After mowing, weeding, walking 2 miles, chasing grandkids, and whatever else I need that! You just crack me up! Have fun in Cancun! And I'm glad you are seeing how hard it is to keep up that house!
