Best Fitness Advice Ever

It's quite simple really. Are you ready for it? Ok, here goes:

Don't take any fitness advice from me.

I've been pretty consistent with my routine for a few months now. And oddly enough it's not working. Perhaps you'll help me figure it out? I do weights and cardio. I watch what I eat. I log what I eat. And I feel fantastic doing it. I've putting the kids to bed and running down to my cold basement to do my thing at night. One problem? It leaves me energized so I don't sleep right away and so I'm tired the next day.

No, I can't work out in the mornings. The glue from my sheets is set to release me *just* in time to get myself and the kids ready in the mornings before leaving for work. No deviations from the plan. Getting up at 5:30 in the morning is just ridiculous. At one point I fooled myself into believing that I would get up and start my day right. I did it a handful of times and that was it. Nigh time works better for actually having a routine.

But really... it hasn't been working lately. (Here comes the problem you were supposed to help me solve) I mean what's wrong with working out one full week, and taking two off, back on for one more week and then two off again, and so on and so forth? A routine, is a routine, is a routine... why does it matter that its not often? No need to answer, really. I know its bad. I wish it was easier. I was doing good (3 weeks straight) until I found out about losing my job, and that was.... umm... a lil over 3 weeks ago. My inspiration is gone and I'm oh so sad. And not happy. Boo. =(


  1. lol I wonder why its not working. don't be too hard on yourself girl, I don't have one year old twins and its hard to have some kind of routine, at least you have one, not perfect but better than nothing.

  2. I'll tell you my workout routine...get a pen, because you might wanna take notes. I start my day with 2 fists full of girl scout cookies and I set a timer. I give myself 42 seconds to see how many I can shove down my pie-hole and then I do the same thing before bedtime. I might not be getting thinner, but soon enough my belly will hang so low that I won't have to wear pants to cover up my downstairs.
    Sigh....can you tell I'm irritated with myself?

  3. You have posted an incredible website.
