still at it

coffee...
I mix the unsweetened creamer 
with unsweetened almond milk 
a shake 
I LOVE this mixture 
sounds weird Chai tea and coffee 
but yumm!!! 
this is all I took to work 
egg whites and the shake 
minus the protein 
I have a full refrigerator at work 
oh and also my vitamins and a bar 
my work frig 
plenty for the day! 
or two 
and toast also 
perks of working in a grocery store 
easy (too easy) access to food-a-plenty  
felt BIG 
hid it all behind a flowy top 
got a work out in 
I feel all achy today 
not sure if I will hit the gym 
or make today a rest day 
didn't sleep well last night 
what to do what to do??? 
calories low yesterday 1101
weight this morning 159.6

we have all seen this meme 
so yesterday I did the UNTHINKABLE 
low calorie day 
1243
yep I did it 
and I made it through!
so today will be interesting 
I need to keep busy so I don't go off the rails 
158.2 this morning 
gym today and maybe a hike 
I would LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE to see the 140's again 
going to take everything I have 
focus 
yesterday I had a BIG reminder I have been 
treading water for over a year now 
let's see if I can do another 1200 day!!! 
I'll report back

I hurt

sometimes ... ah most times
I think I am like 20
but sadly I am not
so I may push myself too hard
not sure what I did
hands hurt
maybe from improper form of my barbell lifts yesterday???
hips hurt
give me a break I only ran 5 minutes yesterday
cardio was: 5 minutes stairs, 5 minutes bike,
5 minutes walk and ending in 5 minutes run
not loving the aches and pains

so: no gym today
weight is same
159 this morning
as long as I stay out of the dreaded 160's
keep pushing
yep that's all I got

just trying to stay cool

just quietly doing my thing 
I FINALLY found a gym 
a for reals 24/7 gym!! 
small, clean, not crowded, and the weights are racked 
and pretty reasonable at $50 a month 
I know shocker!!! 
such a place on this planet DOES exist 
today is food prep 
in this heat (106 here in So Cal)
I don't do any oven food 
microwave and stovetop all the way 
but I will make some yummyness 
and get ready for the week  
have a great day yall
and if you are in Southern California 
stay cool 
157.6 this morning

enough already!!!

Quick fixes.....DO NOT WORK!!!! 
nope, nada, zip, ziltch 
they aren't out there 
but man oh man will people, emails, 
companies, and the Internet try and sell them to you!!!! 
here is a concept 
eat food, move your body and count calories 
it's simple common sense 
you don't (read I DON'T) 
need a 7 day jump start 
a 28 day fix 
a 30 day program 
this is a lifetime
this is a lifestyle 
this is about loving yourself (myself) for 
where I am and who I am 
and doing what I can 
and it's good enough 
I can get caught up in those around me that 
"oh do this to improve this"
"read this to help with that" 
"do better than yesterday" 
when is enough enough? 
I kicked butt yesterday 
I ate great
drank my water 
moved my body 

ENOUGH 
I am accountable to myself 
make enough enough

What up with Dat?

I love (read not) how gyms advertise "24 hour Fitness" 
and (for example) don't open until 7AM on Saturday 
I am currently on a quest to find someplace I can work out 
My current "open always" gym for example 
Today I can't work out 
sure I could go after work along with the 
1,597,356,364,985,355 people!!! 
I like to work out at like 4AM - 5AM 
early 
I leave for work by 6-630 AM gym doesn't open until 7
same for Sunday and Monday (4th of July holiday hours) 
so I can't workout today
or tomorrow 
or 4th of July 
and I am pretty sure the 5th of July they open at 5AM 
annoying .....
I'll find something truly 24 hours 
I am on a mission...
meanwhile 
and maybe some abs 
food is on point 
keeping at it!!! 
5 more work days until a day off 
yeah... while the rest of the world is 
off enjoying festivities 
some of us are working 
oh well 
off to do some cardio, abs and pack my food
