That's the spirit!

Today was SO busy!  I barely got in 3000 steps at work and that from only a couple bathroom breaks.  Ugh I wish I wasn't so tied to a desk so much!  Well, I'll figure something out.  The sun is setting later, so a nice evening walk is always an option.  Plus my dogs LOVE walks!

Didn't do great on eating according to plan today.  Had a small slice of pie at work (strawberry-rubharb, never tried it before - yum!) and ate cheeseburger meal for dinner.  Funny thing is that I love cheeseburgers - or maybe I used to love 'em, because tonight it was only so-so.  Anyway, I just didn't feel like cooking and even after evaluating our options - Chinese takeout (Panda Express or PF Changs), American cuisine (Champps or a local Steak house) where the calories for just the entree with no sides were like 2000+ calories - we were overwhelmed and just opted for burgers.  That ever happened to you?  

So, I did do some training today.  Treadmilled it for 30 minutes - woot.  But as I typed this I just realized I didn't do core or stretches - uughh!  Well, hopefully I can remember to add them tomorrow.  That's not a very positive comment is it?  Uh, how about this...


Ok, sorry for "yelling" in all caps, but I need to get the point across to myself.

Nike FuelBand
In other fitness news, the New Balance watch I bought yesterday didn't work out for me - it was a little wide and where I wear it, it kind of bothered me when I moved/flexed my wrist.  So... I did more research and ended up with a Nike FuelBand.  I did my workout while wearing it and it seems fairly accurate.  I'm hoping it will help me challenge myself to new levels of fitness!  Hmmm, that sounded like a commercial - maybe Nike should hire me lol!  Well, why stop now? In keeping with that marketing spirit, here's a pic of the new gadget...


  1. Exercising and keeping fit is crucial for my overall well-being. I try to visit gym regularly but sometimes my work makes me completely exhausted. What really helps is taking nutritional supplements. For me Military Grade Nutritionals work best. They quickly bring me up. I feel energized when I exercise and throughout the day.

  2. I'm with you on supplements Allan, I used them regularly in the past and found them quite beneficial. I liked using a creatine/HMB supplement - I think it helped keep me energized and aided in faster muscle recovery. I tend to hold off on using supplements until I've hit a plateau though - they're usually exactly what I need to breakthrough. Thanks for stopping by!
