Incline baby

Success! gym after work. I did my run/walk for only 30 min. I did however add an incline so I made it harder. I didn't make the distance but I am making myself work for it.

I am trying to improve the strength of my legs. I almost feel like my legs aren't strong enough. My calves etc. I am finally getting better at stamina but the strength just isn't there yet. I do leg press and the abductor machines and squats all in an attempt to build strength.It's really hard to try and know which exercises I need to do to build overall strength. I want my skin to recover as I lose weight. I wish I could afford a trainer. I have had to modify my budget to afford the closer/more expensive gym.  I am hoping I can find a way to at least afford once a month. I know it doesn't seem like a lot but I think even once a month as a "check up" the trainer could help me focus. That is several months away if it happens. Until then I will just continue going to the gym and pushing myself harder and harder. That is how I will see success.

Manic Monday

Monday why did you come back? I told you, we were over!

Getting back to my routine. Weekend was relaxing, I cleaned and organized.  Now have my kitchen table in the living room. In the kitchen it was part work space part dumping ground. Hoping I can get into the habit of eating at the table. I think that will help me with eating too fast and stuffing my face vs. tasting my food.

Today my goal is go to the gym after work. In fact that is my goal every day this week. It's possible. Car Pooling makes that possible. Neither I or my buddy; RJ want to stay too late and when someone else is dependent on a ride. It's much easier to leave on time.

Finally got my measurements from May. I need to do them now so I can see what's changes.
