God, I've been so busy!

Sorry, I'm terrible about keeping up to date on posts (and reading others blogs). In the summer when we are slow at work, I find myself wasting away my afternoons browsing on the internet, unfortunately now that I have to work at work (gasp! how dare they make me work at work!), I don't have as much time.

All is doing ok on the Weight-Maintenance front. I am sitting towards the high end of my range right now, but I'm working on that, with tracking for a couple days.

I've still been trying to follow the Abs Diet Principles, and I think it's a really healthy way to eat. Not really looking to lose weight with it, just looking to be healthier, I don't need all that processed garbage all the time.

I'm still going to the gym, go me! Although I did cut down what I was doing. I was doing 6 of 7 days a week, and I think that was a little much. Plus I was doing some serious weight lifting too, and I think in turn I was gaining weight from the addition of muscle, which regardless if its "good weight" or "fat" I don't want to gain weight. I still have fat to lose before I worry about muscle, so I'm just going intense cardio 4 or 5 days a week now. After 6 weeks I will evaluate where I am at and determine what to do then. So that is my goal right now, In 6 weeks to make it to the gym 18 times (roughly three times a week), but I would more like that number to be 25-30 times. But I'm giving myself leeway.

At the gym for Cardio I've been doing High Intensity Interval Training, which is suppose to be the ultimate fat-blasting tool. We will see how it works. I've been running on the treadmill for it, and I've never enjoyed running, but I actually enjoy this for the most part. Plus the workouts are short, about 20 minutes, which I love, it doesn't take up all night at the gym.

Other than that, not much new around here. I'm back on the dating scene. When I find someone interesting I will post some details.

Weigh In will be posted Friday.

Hope everyone is doing great!

Thanks for your well-wishes, Kate. Sounds like you are doing really well. Maybe you'll meet a hunk at the gym, huh?

It's sad that work has to cut into our blogging time, isn't it? Sounds like you have everything planned out really well here. I can't wait to see how it works out for you!

i've recently started doing intervals too - both on the treadmill (hills and sprints) and on the elliptical... what a difference! plus, it really does make the time go by faster! :o)
