Travel Day

Today has been a busy day!  And by the time you read this, I’ll be en route to Denver.  I have to be at the airport at an ungodly hour, and I still have a lot to do before I leave….You know, important things…like packing.  At this point, I’m not really sure if I’m packing for one week or two so I’ll assume I’m going for a week, and I’ll just do laundry while I’m there if I need to.

Anyway, this day has been long, but I’ve gotten a few key things accomplished.  One thing that I was determined to do today is workout, and I did.  And thanks to my friend, Robby, I had the best workout I’ve had in over a month!  Thank you for the  Body Glide Robby!  It worked wonders just like you said it would! If you don’t know Robby, you should.  Check out her blog here!

FatGirlvsWorld meets AlltheWeigh

After spending last week on the bike and several weeks prior on the treadmill, I was thrilled to revisit my favorite machine – the elliptical.  I felt like a million bucks when I finished, and I can only hope that this stuff works as well in the future as it did today.  I felt no pain or irritation at the gym, and that’s a huge relief!  Working out is finally fun again! 🙂

Though I’ve been on several flights since the Spring, this will be the first flight I’ve taken with Mom since the incident with Southwest.   And because it’s almost time for me to board an airplane with Mom, I’m feeling a tinge of anxiety just as I have on the last few flights I’ve taken. But the anxiety is definitely worth it because my sister and niece will be waiting for us on the other side.  And few things, if any, make me happier than being with my niece!

I can't wait to hug this kid! 🙂

My plan for the week is to continue my workouts.  In addition to cardio, I’m doing 100 crunches per day, everyday, for the rest of the week.  I’ve done 400 in the last 4 days, and some amazing twitter friends have joined me too.  It’s nice to work toward goals together.

Are you traveling this week?  Do you plan to exercise during the holiday weekend?

    I definitely need to exercise. My husband and I used to excercise every day, but now we never execise. I’ve been trying to lose weight for years, but I’ve had little success. I’ll lose 20 or 30 pounds and then hit a plateau and won’t lose anymore despite my best efforts. It drives me crazy, but I can’t give up. I’m hoping to go visit family in Arizona in February and although I absolutely love flying, I have a bit of anxiety about being confronted the way I was last time by a Southwest employee (http://melissawphotos.blogspot.com/2011/05/last-legal-form-of-descrimination.html ). It was completely humiliating. I just hope I don’t have the same difficulty this time. I don’t want my vacation ruined.
