I am so frustrated. I have not been able to work out in about a week and a half. Life has been insane, but I am being careful with my eating and am still losing weight. I am almost at 31 pounds lost. Wahoooo!! I cannot wait to get back to the gym and get going. I have a personal training session tomorrow night and look forward to it. Then hopefully I can get back on schedule. I am doing what I can at home to stay active and parking far away at work and when I run errands, so I'm working with what I have. Keith has had to travel and he usually is with the kids when I work out. I have come to appreciate all he does for me more and more each day. Someone asked me lately if it is hard when he travels and my answer was, "We are very blessed in this economy that he is working. What would be hard is if he didn't have a job." Yes, there are hard aspects to having him gone, but like I said he is working and he does come home.

My workout goals for this next week and beyond.

-get to personal training tomorrow night.
-Workout Friday, Saturday, Monday, Tues., Wed. Make sure that I am getting running in there for my 5k that is on April 4th.
-Keep doing well with my weight watchers points
-Weight under 270 by March 17, 2009

What are your goals for this week and beyond? It doesn't have to be working out or losing weight. Just set some and get going on whatever it is you need to do. YOU CAN DO IT and I BELIEVE IN YOU. Have a blessed day.

I am so blessed that you truly appreciate that your husband works for you guys. Being gone is not easy but like you say. The alternative would really suck bad.

I too am grateful every day that both my husband and I have jobs! It gives me a different attitude about the work that we both bring home to do in the evenings and over the weekends.

For those stretches when your husband is traveling, have you considered using some exercise DVDs? There are some really good ones that incorporate interval training, alternating high impact with low impact--like Prevention's Fight Cellulite Fast (a favorite of mins), Leslie Sansone's advanced DVDs (alternating indoor walking with jogging), Biggest Loser, etc. You can watch clips and get full reviews through a website called They have a ton of DVDs that are not available in stores, and you can use their search features to find ones that are right for you.
