It has been 12 days and some 16 hours since my last post. At the start of this project, I committed and swore to myself that not one week would go by without at least one post. Oh well! While I’m disappointed that I haven’t blogged for more than a few days, I can live with that fact. Let’s see- job… check…. home… check… family… check… health…. check- Really, the world hasn’t ended. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it. This approach works for me and helps me to maintain my sanity. We all know that life can be quite challenging, so I try really hard to not take life too seriously. Most days I am successful.
I must say though that, during the past 12 days, not a day passed where I wasn’t trying to figure out how I could squeeze in some time to blog. But some how between dinner preparations, helping my son with homework, working out, and other wifely duties, I was just too pooped to read or to write. Yikes! I always feel as though I can never get everything done, but I don’t stress over it, because there is always tomorrow. Now, although I didn’t make or have time (depending on how you look at it) to blog, I did make time to intensify my workout routine and I am excited about that. There’s always a trade off and that’s what I try to remind myself. Okay, so I didn’t get one thing done, but I did accomplish something else in its place and that counts; right? Someone please help me on this one…
I increased my workout intensity with this cool, BodyFit Gel Touch Body Trainer. I bought it at Sports Authority for around $12. I bought the one for the lower body, but they also sell them for the upper and full body. It’s so cool, you can take it anywhere and it even fits in those larger fashionable handbags. You can use it just about any place, including at work, during your lunch break. You know that the summer will be upon us quickly and we all want to look and feel our best, especially during the hot and sizzly summer months. The body trainer comes with instructions on how to use it. I searched online for it at Sports Authority, but could only find the full body and upper body trainers, so if you want the one that I bought, you’ll have to buy it in the store. Anyway, I love it! It’s great for toning the thighs and buttocks. By the way, if you do try it and isolate the muscles correctly, you will feel the BURN.
For those of you who have the time to work out at the gym, I am envious. When my son is older, I will return to the gym. However, for now, I am ever so thankful for the home gym that my husband concocted for me. I am also thankful to have had time today to workout, to blog, and to…. Nope! Not cooking tonight, going out again to enjoy AC’s Restaurant week. Enjoy your weekend!
