I've been very lazy lately, due to weather, family things going on, etc, but I'm so sick of making excuses. Blegh.
There's a lot of things you can do quickly, indoors, without any equipment! Beanie mentioned/introduced me to bodyweight workouts last year and I looove them.

I want to work on my arms, upper back and leg muscles. If it was warm, I'd be shooting my recurve bow and that's an arm and whole back exercise in itself when you're putting 2 to 300 arrows in a target but it's too cold outside for my bow (it's made of a lightweight wood that would warp too easily coming in and going outside, at only 16# draw)

My goals are really to get my draw weight up to 35#s on my bow (legal hunting weight limit) and put on muscle. I HAVE to get off of a specific medication and my Dr is working with me on that currently, and I'm very happy with her plan. She said as long as I come off and don't continue to lose weight like I have been, my goals are fine as far as working out. I've had bloodwork done, and nothing is indicating why I've lost so much weight.

I know a lot of you want to lose weight, but I really need to gain weight. I'm 5'9 with a BMI of 15.5. That's so totally NOT HEALTHY either that it's ridiculous. Being under a 100 pounds at my height has my heartrate jacked up, but my blood sugar and pressure continue to be in the perfect/slightly low/but excellent range. My cholesterol (both kinds) are in the perfect range, so my Dr feels like it's the medication causing the weight loss. And my thyroid and iron and ferratin levels are all fine, perfectly in the middle of normal range, so none of those are causing the problem.

It's frustrating trying to workout, but not even having the energy to hardly get out of bed and do normal things, let alone put a workout in there somewhere.

That's partly why I asked for the title to be changed to fitness - don't want to exclude anybody, and fitness > loss, anyways.

Rick noticed my shoulders have slimmed down while I was changing today, win.

Leg Day at the gym on Monday
Core workout at the gym on Tuesday
5 straight hours of snowboard on challenging (for me) terrain on Wednesday

Took yesterday off and I'm probably just going to get a lot of walking/stairs in today because I'm on a 13 hour shift at work.

I might do arms on Sunday if I can get one of the other guys to go with me for spotting.

A friend of mine goes to the gym on a regular basis and invited me to join. It so happens that we have free time at the same time...so I've gone twice, third time tomorrow, and I think we're going to always try to go togethed! Whoot! Think I may get a membership if it is easy to back out of (as I will hopefully be moving in the next couple of months...).

I'm sore in places I didn't know could be sore, but I feel SO GOOD. Having a buddy to keep me motivated is just what I needed.

I've lost about half of the weight I gained over Christmas...hooray for no snacking! Now to just tone up a bit and loose another 7 pounds!

I don't normally say these things out loud. People look at me and I am supposed to be the expert and the fount of knowledge and the one who doesn't mess up or skip workouts, et cetera. So I feel like I can't say stuff because it will ruin that image of me. But always keeping stuff bottled up isn't good. So here goes.

I went to the doctor today and had to get on the scale. I expected 145 to come up, which is a number higher than I really WANT to see... but I have halfway made peace with the fact that my expectations of what the scale will say at my desired particular body fat percentage may not be correct, and my concern is really more on the BFP than the actual weight. But "weight" as a thing on the scale is so ingrained into us, it's hard to completely let it go... so that is what it is.

But the scale said 152 today.

I know this is not Actually A Thing. My clothes do not fit any differently. I realize how much our weight can fluctuate just day by day. I have a full bladder and my sneakers were on, which probably accounts for at least a pound. And I know muscle, of which I have quite a bit and am very concerned with building, is more dense than fat.

I know ALL of these things.

But that number makes me want to cry anyway.
And maybe eat an entire container of ice cream.
The big container. Not a little pint.

So there you go.
