It has been yet another week already and working out has really eaten up a great deal of my quality blogging time. I am not complaining, mind you, but it is a complete bummer to not be able to keep both rolling. Hopefully after my company's big trade show next weekend I will be better able to manage my time as I won't be working and exercising so much. I am sure my husband wouldn't mind seeing more of me either!

Workout for the week:
Monday: 45 minutes treadmill going to an incline of 10 at 3.4. 30 minutes of weight lifting (arms and back. Finish with crunches.
Tuesday: 1 hour of Body Pump class. 15 minutes on treadmill at incline of 10 at 3.4. 10 minutes of abs.
Wednesday: 45 minutes treadmill going to an incline of 10 at 3.4. 45 minutes of weight lifting- two complete sets on the machines. 10 minutes of abs.
Thursday: 45 minutes treadmill going to an incline of 10 at 3.4. 35 minutes of weight lifting (legs and side of abs). 10 minutes of abs.
Friday: 1 hour of body pump. 10 minutes of abs and cool down.

Average calories consumed daily: 1200

Weigh in!

Loss this week: 1 crappy pound
Total weight loss: 3 pounds

The light at the end of the tunnel so far is that I have lost two inches off my waist in two weeks. This means that hopefully I am successfully converting my fat to lean mass.

Enough about weight loss and working out. Yawn. It is the end of week two so there are ten weeks left to go!

I wish I had your fortitude Heidi. I do work my butt off the weekends now (at the car wash, no, NO, DON'T START SINGING THAT SONG!!!) and I have lost weight at that. But nothing like you. Sheesh, if I had a gym tee shirt it would read "Body by Hershey"...

Keep it up! I have to wonder though if you post about working out to keep your hubby from reading your blog... lol.. women are clever like that!

Rock on with your workouts sister. I know I balance my comic reading and blogging against the yoga and running. (and work, guitar, husband, family, friends!)

Ditto to all that's been said. Continue to rock, HM!

Thank you for all the support- I really appreciate it and it helps keep me focused, especially on a day like Super Bowl Sunday when the temptations are so great!

Carl, I want a t-shirt that says that, because I would fit right in as well. Not eating any sweets other then fruit right now is a huge challenge!

Jack- I think you may have something there!

Redlib- Balance is definitely key. I am glad to have my workouts because they keep me from overworking, and they definitely keep my pants fitting!

Melchior- thank you for the kind words!

Thank you all again! It means a great deal to me.

heidi, congrats on the recent weight loss and personal motivation with it. I will be the first to agree that it is a battle to balance blogging with all the other maintanence issues in life. when the holidays rolled around, I had to weigh my job/home issues heavier and stop for a while.
as always with the new year the weight issue crossed my mind also, and with convention time rolling in quickly I am right on that same treadmill with ya. amen and pass the grapefruit! good Job heidi!~
