Nice report card today


We spent part of the morning housecleaning so the Easter Bunny doesn't trip over something and break a leg when he visits tonight. I had planned to go to the gym this afternoon but unfortunately Tim got called in to work for a few hours, leaving me without a car or a babysitter. No problems, I did some Fantasia and kept at it for over an hour. The muscles in my shoulders are feeling it.

I've been looking at my gym's timetable, thinking about going back to doing classes. It has evolved over the years. There used to be a lot of Step and aerobic classes. Then BodyPump became popular, and later Zumba. Those are both still around, but the new favourite at my gym is PT HIIT - small groups with a personal trainer. They use special equipment stations and do boot camp stuff like flipping tractor tyres. At the end of last year there were a couple of classes a week, now there is a couple every day. And with times for beginners. So my plan is to gather my courage and try it on Tuesday. I might also do some Pump and Zumba, I used to like both of those. For some reason I've been avoiding classes lately, but I'm feeling ready now.

Last night I kept the CPAP on for six hours - increasing night by night. Again, I woke after about three but kept it on. My nose was pretty sore by the end of six but I will get used to that in a few more nights. Doing well on my resolution.

Report card:
Diet: Good-ish. There may have been some cream sauce on the broccoli. And a few lollies. But mostly good-ish.
Exercise: Good.
Water: Good, one glass to go.
Sleep: Good.
Mental health: Good.

What a nice report!


  1. I keep looking at the bootcamp stuff at the gym including that big tire thinking... maybe in a little more time when I'm not winded trying to make the stairs I am going to try it.

    but at foolsfitness our current exercise is trying to hunt down that little bunny, we hear he may have chocolate eggs in his basket!- alan at Foolsfitness

  2. Happy Easter Natalie,

    I'm so glad to see your report card, keep it up, you are coming back towards the 'health' light :)

    I don't go to a gym, I prefer to not have a schedule and workout on my own timetable. We even have a small gym in our park, just not my cup of tea!

    As long you are self-motivate, you can exercise pretty much any where.
