Happy new week, my Fabulous Followers!

I have been wandering aimlessly for at least one month or longer...fortunately I continue my workouts four to five days per week. I have been eating lots of grain/dairy carbs which bloat me and cause weight gain for sure - #muststop!

I want to go back to my basics - keto, paleo, low carb works best for me, and continue to log everything even if it is not the best choice. I want to better hold myself accountable for my choices so logging is essential!

Besides the annual HELL WEEK is starting at the gym soon!!!!

Happy new week, my Fabulous Followers!

I fell off the grid a few days while I was in San Diego for my youngest niece's wedding! I went to the local Orange Theory Fitness while there, had some fun and enjoyed the wedding and reception.

I wore a nice dress to the ceremony - but everyone dressed down for the Fiesta that followed - so I am in my favorite summer clothes in this photo!

Greetings my Fabulous Followers!

Yesterday I mentioned Orange Theory Fitness and got a few questions. I love the place - it is an international chain of fitness studios. You wear a heart rate monitor while doing interval training as a group coached by fitness trainer. Rowing machines, weight lifting, treadmill or elliptical, etc. Here's a link you can copy and paste in your browser if interested:

No, I do not work for them - LOL

No, I am not gone. No, I have not fallen off the wagon. Yes, I have been incredibly distracted and busy with work and travel for work.

I am exercising well - and eating is "meh" - it has been hard to stay focused and I am not managing stress well.

SAN DIEGO from Thursday to Monday - and I am already scheduled to go to my Orange Theory Fitness twice in San Diego! It is nice belonging to a big chain sometimes...

I had to modify my annual goals - I feel fat and old right now because I am slacking in my nutrition plan! #GoGetIt!

Greetings my Fabulous Followers!

I had a great workout this morning with my favorite trainer. He often gives me a shout out during the class - "You go, Helen, using those big girl weights." Ha Ha...I think I did a PR this morning on one of the moves but could only do 4 reps out of 8...

Leaving today for a business trip so I have my almonds, protein powder, hard boiled eggs, etc. to try to supplement meals. There really is no gym near the venue and we work 10 hour days...not sure if I will have time for walks but will keep stretching my muscles out every night.

I am going to try to post my food at night...we shall see!
