Today marks the end of another great weekend! I work Saturday, which is something I don’t have to do often so it was a nice change of pace at work. I got some much work done because no one was blowing up my work phone calling and asking me to do other things! I walked away feeling really great about all that I accomplished! :) After work I headed to see Trevor and Fargo! I haven’t seen Fargo in far to long, we went to a park for the lighting of Christmas lights and a skating rink. The trees were pretty and it was nice to get outside in a urban area and do some walking. We we walked to get off and just talked and caught up on life. On Sunday Trevor and I cleaned my car which was long long over due. We spent the day hanging out! He gave me a my birthday present which is AMAZING!! (Pictures below) He made it himself, it’s made out of the love seat that he had when he was younger and was in our first 3 apartments together! My goal for the week is to get my house cleaned and reorganized to make it more livable. I have a treadmill that I need to figure out as well, it doesn’t work and really just takes up space I need to find someone to fix it because it would be really nice to walk in my apartment where I can watch TV. It will probably take me days to get my house clean so I hope that I can make it happen!
It’s been a while since I last posted! I was gone last weekend for my dad’s birthday, I did some hiking with my sister and her family which was nice but a little cold. My brother-in-law taught us how to Airborne Shuffle, which is a good workout but not overly exhausting, plus when you have your sister and 3 of your nieces and nephews with you and your brother-in-law calling cadence its super fun! I have been sick for the last few days today was the first day I felt 100%! I walked a total of a half a mile in two days but I also didn’t eat anything so I guess it’s a wash for weight loss. I’m back at it again today though! I walked 2 miles on the treadmill, 1.75 miles hiking, and 4 miles biking. On my hike I think I might have seen a bear, it was getting dark and I was on an unfamiliar trail so I’m not positive. I hear a stick break and then a little while later I heard a few more break and when I whipped around I saw something black running the other way. Like I said I can’t be positive as to what I saw or if it was a trick of the eyes because the sun was going down. Things haven’t been terribly eventful my work schedule has been a little weird because we are really short staffed, can’t really do anything but wait for people to get hired, otherwise work and work some more!

Today was a long day at work, I had a staff meeting in the morning and then did a taught a class this evening for 4 hours. I didn’t get up early enough to work out but I did get in a nice workout between my meeting and training! I think I need to change it up more and go to both gyms that’s what I did today and it seemed to keep me going longer. Tomorrow I work weird shifts again. My water intake has gotten better but I will continue to work on doing it every day! I’m trying to figure out what I need to motivated myself to get more workouts in. I have gained weight and I need to get better about things I just need to figure out something to motivate me other than weight loss and health. I need a bigger goal! Any ideas would be appreciated!

I started my day off with a walk on the treadmill for 1 mile I spent most of my day at work and then came home to my wife making peanut butter rice crispy treats. They were amazing kind of like her. I feel like I had more time before and I don’t know why I can’t seem to find that time anymore. Tomorrow I plan on getting up early and going to weigh in for the first time in a while and then workout and they I work a lot tomorrow with a staff meeting in the morning and teaching a training tomorrow night. I want a solid workout in before my day starts tomorrow so I’m off to bed! :)

I slept like shit last night. Only about 3 hours, needless to say my morning workout didn’t happen. I anticipated being able to make up for it tonight but that didn’t happen either because I ended up at work for 14 hours instead of 8. Highlight of my day, 120 oz of water!! That’s way more than I thought I would manage not as great as I want it to be but getting there. I’m going to attempt to get more sleep now because I want my morning workout!
