Late night, finally sitting down

Ugh it makes me mad when I don't get to sit down to dinner until 8pm. A few nights a week this tends to be the case. It seems like I work, speed to the gym, try to get at least an hour in there and then speed home to do whatever work around the house that needs to be done. Tonight it was the laundry which involves going to the laundry mat. Luckily for me it is right down the road, but it definitely makes for a long night.

I've decided this week that I am going to challenge myself to 60 minutes of cardio a day and toning moves. I'm also bringing back my strength training exercises. I took a break on these last week when I was doing the Self Challenge. I read in Fitness Magazine on Friday that if you are looking to tone then you shouldn't rest in between sets and if you do they should be very short breaks. Now I'm not sure if I believe this or not but I'm going to try it during April and see if it makes a difference in my measurements next month.

I seem to be doing okay with 19 points a day. I was able to stick to my plan this weekend even though I went out once, seafood is definitely a great option and I've been eating a ton of it lately. Guess I've got a plan for the rest of the week, hopefully it all goes great :)


  1. 60 minutes a day when you have a job and all that work around the house is not as easy as "skinny" people think. I think you'll do great.

    Are those your legs on your profile? I quiet like them :)
