Do Over

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

I have to start this whole 2 week thing over.  I didn't get a chance to do ANY sort of exercise yesterday.  I don't really have an excuse, it's just the day got away.  I'm still down that 1 lb from last week, but I want more; and quick-like.

I'm going to change it up some though. The goal of 1 and 1/2 hours a day on the treadmill and three 5 min sessions on the ab roller is just too far out of reach right now.  The main problem is that my treadmill only allows 1 hour at a time and then "resets" itself.  This makes it to easy for me to say to myself "I'll finish up the other 1/2 hour later", and then not get to it. 

So, now I'm going to shoot for 1 hour a day on the treadmill and two sessions of the 5 min workout on the ab roller.  This is a much more realistic (and less daunting) goal.  Once I complete the 2 weeks on that schedule, I'll set the bar a little higher.


On an unrelated note, if anyone has ANY leads on ANY jobs, I'd appreciate any help you can give me.  For those of you new to the site, I'm an IT specialist who can't find work.  The Sun-Times does offer ANY financial compensation for writing this blog (they have offered me something much better; my health and well-being) and I'm coming up on 2 years out of work with my unemployment running out next week.  I have a family of 6 with a newborn (ok, I guess he's not a newborn as he'll be 1 the 23rd of this month, but he's still little and fragile!) so I'll take anything. Although I have started my own business, I'll need work to tide us over until it takes off.

If you have any leads or opportunities, please email me at  Thanks!
