Rough Start

This week has started off a little on the rocky side. I didn't make it to the gym on Monday some things came up and as soon as I got home I took a nap. I even forgot to thaw out my shrimp to make scampi! UGH!!! I ended up eating oatmeal for dinner because I didn't go grocery shopping and nothing was thawed. Then I ended up cooking the oatmeal for too long and it looked like porridge (Ewww!)

Today was hard trying to motivate myself to get to the gym after missing Monday, but I did make it! I did 30 minutes on the Treadmill I even kicked it up a notch by jogging two 4 minute intervals @ 4.0 speed... I was ready to pass out, then I got on the Stationary Bike and disappointed myself, I couldn't even make it for the full 15 minutes I gave up after 10mins, my legs would just not cooperate with me (*Note to self: "Don't miss anymore scheduled gym days...that is all!")

What I won't do is beat myself up about missing a workout day or not being able to finish my 15 minutes on the bike today. So I fell off a little... BIG DEAL! I'm just going to pick myself up and try again tomorrow.

Stay Tuned for more Updates...Healthier Me


  1. I love the attitude! Good job motivating yourself to go to the gym!!

  2. Boil water. Put frozen shrimp portion that you are having in a colander or strainer. Put in boiling water for 20 seconds.. (Count it out). Shrimp are ready to cook...Easy, Peezy

  3. I think that you are doing a great job so far. Good work on the treadmill, that thing can be a monster. Thanks for all the support!

  4. @ Allan Thanx! You learn something new everyday! I didn't know I could thaw shrimp that way :D

    @ MissHaneefa Thank you Maam! and YES the treadmill is a beast! But I think I win majority of our battles! lol
