Long time no post…

I didn’t fall off the wagon, I just didn’t have anything to say other than, “Working out, eating right.” It’s the painful truth of long-term weight maintenance. It’s a long-term grind and it’s the same thing every day – workout, eat right.

This week I’ve been doing ballet, aka barre workouts. They are a lot harder than you expect them to be (especially if all you have are 5 lb weights when your YouTube instructor recommends and is using 3 lbs!). As you can probably imagine, it’s an intense leg workout, but as a surprise, it’s also an intense arms, shoulders, back and chest workout too. I find this very satisfying! I need to get a chair with a shorter back for that second workout I linked to above though.

Yesterday I had meetings all morning and couldn’t get any exercise in until lunchtime, so I took an hour-long walk around my neighborhood after scarfing down an HMR entree.

This week I started tracking again in MyFitnessPal because I had a bit of a blowout weekend camping at Joshua Tree National Park, which was amazing and otherworldly and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a beautiful camping getaway! I probably indulged too much (s’mores! trail mix! so good!)  which left me feeling a need to tighten up my behaviors this week with more focused tracking and exercise.

So how are your long-term lifestyle behaviors coming along this week?

    My life has been so chaotic I haven’t posted on my blog for almost a year.

    Same for me… I have a routine! My weight is still coming off. I finally broke a plateau, and lost two pounds last week!

    I took a major step for me & rejoined WW. It has worked for me in the past, so I figure it’ll work again. I really need a tune up. I’m pretty excited, so I know it was the right decision! Sadly, I just discovered that my beloved Cliff bars are off the list. They were the perfect portable breakfast after a run, but nearly a third of my total points allotment. No bueno.
