Back to Business

I had a good visit with my mom. I brought her some clothes and brought her laundry home with me.  I want to thank you for all the comments and support on that subject. I know they probably are not the easiest posts to read but it is my reality and it helps to have a venue to put those emotions/feelings. 

After I got home from our visit, I wanted to do some resistance training while I watched Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice and realized that I no longer have my resistance bands. I gave Dave a set thinking I had another one but low and behold I did not so I went on Amazon and found these. They retail for $79.99 usually but I got them for $24.95! Woot! Woot! They will arrive on Monday.

From their website: Enjoy a dynamic full-body workout anywhere, anytime, with this Flexcords resistance band set. An affordable alternative to a home gym, the Flexcords set comes with six total resistance bands, each with a different tension. The bands--one yellow (3 to 6 pounds), one orange (7 to 12 pounds), one green (12 to 18 pounds), one red (18 to 28 pounds), one blue (28 to 40 pounds), and one white (40 to 55 pounds)--give you complete control of your workout. Simply choose the tension that's best suited to your exercise routine, and then alter the resistance when you switch exercises.

I really want to get back to business with losing weight and getting healthier.  I am grateful that these life occurrences have not thrown me into a tailspin with my eating but I have not been getting any notable exercise and that needs to change PRONTO. I feel like I have been in a holding pattern for months and I need to break through this. Exercising would be not only physically beneficial but mentally as well. It is not like I don't have the time to do it. I am worth the time and effort!

Have a great weekend! Until next time...

P.S. I will be posting some giveaways soon so stay tuned!
