Weekends go so fast.

This weekend went by so fast! I had a family picnic Saturday. Sunday I went on a walk with my mom, bought some work clothes, and took my stepson out for his 18th (!!!!!) birthday. 

Next week I'm traveling for work to Washington, DC. I haven't been there in a few years and I'm excited to go. DC is definitely one of my favorite cities. 

I am a little embarrassed as I will see coworkers I haven't seen in years. I've gained quite a bit of weight since I've last seen them. I know it will be fine. I guess I'll never get past the high school type fat shaming I've experienced in the past.

New gym

I'm just now starting to feel better. The last two days have been miserable. The worst partis I couldn't even sleep because I was sooo congested!

I am excited that K and I are joining a gym closer to our house. We were members at LA Fitness and I really liked the facility. However, it was just a little too far away. Another bonus is that the new gym is open 24 hours. I'm excited to get more physical activity in!

Taking my breath away

I had a blast taking my dogs to the pooch plunge yesterday. 
However, K has been sick and I knew yesterday morning I getting sick too. I felt pretty bad last night. I woke up this morning and felt terrible! I could barely breathe! I ended up taking sick leave from work and slept most of the day. Hopefully I'm feeling better tomorrow.

10,000 steps

I've had a Fitbit for a while now. I have the Fitbit Flex. Since I work from home and spend most of my time at a desk if really struggle to get 10,000 steps each day. I know I could set a lower goal, but I know 10,000 is possible. On days I travel I usually get closer to 11,000! 

I really made an effort yesterday to reach my goal. However, today I'm looking at my Fitbit at 11:30 PM and I'm nowhere close to 10,000 steps. 

This made me really what one of my biggest downfalls on this journey to healthy has been, inconsistency. And too much inconsistency leads to me pretty much giving up. 

I've decided from now on I need to make a plan. I'm going to make up a calendar and set solid goals. I'll share more about this tomorrow.

4 days

I had yesterday off work for Labor Day. While it is nice to have a four day week, it will probably be a busy four days. I don't travel again for another couple weeks so that helps things. 

I'm really excited for this coming weekend. Toledo Unleashed is holding their annual pooch plunge. Basically they let dogs swim in a city pool the day before they shut it down for the year. Last year was a blast! 

I've also been trying to walk the dogs more. It's not easy with two strong labs, but they are learning. Tonight we even saw three deer.

Hello September!

This year seems to be flying by. I've had some personal things going on lately. No excuse not to blog, but I've let the excuses win a little bit in general.

I've decided I'm going to try to blog at least 5 days per week. I have high hopes!

I'm excited for fall, cold weather, and more blogging!
