Despite the stuffy nose, sore throat, and irritated lungs, (thanks forest fire arsonist) I decided to hop over to the clubhouse hamster wheel for the second day in a row. woot woot!

My set up. I watched Colbert instead of Food Network.
My accomplishment.
I was into my 2nd mile when I noticed that the guy who came in after I did, opened the windows. I had to ask him if I could shut them. It is orange air quality, and I can't handle the smoke while I am breathing heavily. I can't handle it breathing normally.

Sorry, but I can't crop from a screen shot on the BF's laptop. Stupid Windows.
I think he opened the windows because he wanted me off the treadmill quicker. Oh well, he got the TM when I was done and I worked my arms pretty hard with some weights. Rows, presses, bi's & tris & delts, oh my. I still have some DOMS from push-ups, moving stuff from my storage unit and a whole lotta boxes with a hand truck at work this week. I mean, my arms hurt and were so shaky on Wednesday, that I couldn't lift my arm to put a cookie into my mouth. Yeah, it was that bad. Proof I need to spend more time on my upper body strength. Planks are just not enough for me.

Post-workout sweat-fest
Anyways, today is the 2nd day in the row that I have cleaned up my eating and logging it in on The Daily Plate. I kinda overindulged a little more then I should have this past week (or two), and my weight is up. I think that cleaning up my eating is better for me the totally cutting calories drastically. I think I may have done less calories then I should have yesterday because I was kinda cranky in the afternoon and the middle of my work shift I was so hungry. With my personal activity level, 1200-1300 is a big no for me. 1400-1600 is ok depending on the day. 1700+ is a "I'm having a little too much food fun."

Not food fun, but it made me sad that he committed suicide off my counter when I was making my post-workout breakfast this afternoon.

Question for the legal eagles - Can I sue, or class action lawsuit the dude that started the forest fire because of the health issues I am experiencing from the increased bad air quality?

What was your workout today?

What do you do when you want to slim down a few pounds? Clean up your diet? Count calories? Increase activity?


  1. Way to go! To answer your last few questions, I focus on increasing activity. I, of course, watch my diet but as long as I'm burning more calories than I consume everyday, I don't stress over it. Just burn, burn, burn those calories!

    1. Thanks for the reply. I will try adding more activity to my day.
