July to December - no change?

Saturday, December 10, 2011

I have been off SP for ages now, mostly because of work pressures (12 hour days like everyone else), but also because I just moved into a new condo and have been procrastinating on all sorts of move-related issues. :)

Status? Pretty much status quo, I think. I've not been doing much, so had gained a bit more over July, but for the past two weeks I've been watching what goes into my mouth (it's not pretty - way too much goes into my mouth), and have actually been doing the Insanity workouts again.

When I took the fit test two weeks ago, I was astounded: it felt *awfully* hard, but I actually had improved in every category since the last time I took it (about 8 months ago), except for the floor work, which had deteriorated significantly (zero upper body strength, very little core strength!) So I knew I needed to get moving again - hadn't even been doing much walking since I moved into the new place: it's the old catch-22: I now live closer to work (just about 4 miles), so *could* walk to work, but it's far enough that it makes a significant dent in my day, and work has been extremely busy, so I decided I couldn't spare the time.

The truth? I made the time to read, to shower, to eat out a little and to cook a LOT (and *eat* a LOT as well - what can I say? I *love* the food I make!). So it wasn't that I hadn't the time, but that I chose not to use that time towards a healthier body.

Anyway, two weeks is better than zero exercise. That's my story and we're all sticking to it, thank you very much. I figure, we all have the same amount of time each day. So if you can work out for 30 minutes, so can I. I know many of you work even crazier hours than I do, plus you juggle caring for your family in that same 24 hours. Gee, when you put it THAT way, I suspect I do actually have all the time I need.

So, on that note, I'm off to do the final day of Week 2 of Insanity: Pure Cardio and Cardio Abs.

As Shaun T. says, "Have a great day, y'all!"
