YIKES. I did not know Losing It was moving to a new time last night. Neither did my DVR! I completely missed it last night and have to hope to catch it when it runs again, though I don’t know when that is. So who watched? Can someone that did post a little synopsis in comment, please? I would greatly appreciate.
Today, my long-time (10 years) clients leave for the next 8 weeks. I will miss them like crazy, but will embrace and savor some “free” time. I am going to revisit some P90x and also the Physique 57 video that I purchased this spring. Also will be doing some continuing education credits, probably in the area of group resistance training, since I do love (and recognize the extreme importance) of weight training. My next door neighbors just adopted a 3 month old puppy and I offered some assistance with her “training,” too. And swimming…I will be working on that, too. Summer is the season I get to work on MY workouts and I look forward to and appreciate the time. For those that have asked for “just a few training sessions,” this would be a good time for us to work those into our schedules.
While I missed Carol and Rita last night (everyone asked about you, both) , I was happy to see my old student, Michelle, show up for both classes. It’s been a long time and it was such a nice surprise to see her walk in the front door of the gym, looking so pretty as always.
My heart breaks over the situation in the gulf coast. Mitch says we need Superman. I hope he is out there, somewhere and I hope he shows up soon. I keep good thoughts for all the people AND sea life effected by this enormous disaster.
If you eat a lot of fish, this might be a good time to think more about adding more plant based foods to your daily diet! Foods that are abundant in your area should be really tasty right now. I cut a Florida grown cantaloupe last night and it was so sweet and juicy (and a very great value!)
So don’t forget, if you watched Losing It, and can find a few minutes, please post YOUR synopsis and feelings…I look forward to reading them.
Today, my morning is filled with fitness and my afternoon—I am planning on filling it with lots of peace. If all goes smoothly, it should be a near perfect day. I wish for you, something similar…and for Superman.
I saw Losing It last night (in bits and pieces). Jillian goes to Bakersfield, CA and spends time with the May Family. Mom-Ruth divorced with 5 kids (3 at home) Rachel-25 Ashley-20 and a son-15 (don’t remember his name). Family is ANGRY over the divorce- it was difficult and draining on everyone. The mom has hoarding tendacies and the girls are overweight and self sabotaging their lives because they are afraid to leave their Mom alone.
Jillian comes in, beats them up in the gym, helps them see what is at the root of their issues, waves her magic wand and 8 weeks later they reveal their new selves at a family reunion. Each girl has lost about 30 pounds and mom Ruth dropped 74 freaking pounds in 8 weeks!
I’m fascinated by the show, but it doesn’t inspire me, it pisses me off! They make it seem so easy, like all you need to know is WHY you overeat and then magically – you can stop. It doesn’t work that way , and yet with Jillian it does!
What the hell am I doing wrong? I know what’s going on inside my head, but have been unable to make the necessary changes to lose just 15 pounds that I’ve gained over the past 18 months.
Okay, my rant is over – I’m going to lie down and breathe now.
I clicked on the RSS feed link and now, the title of your blog each day appears on my Yahoo home page. It’s WAY COOL Bon! That webmaster of yours is one special guy!!
Bonniiiiiii, I missed it too! Many thanks to Carolann for saving the day. I feel much better now. I will go have a beer and watch the scale move in any direction cause if it’s movinnnn I’m ALIVE YIPPEEEE!
Love to everyone oxoxox

Thats who we need to help cleanup the gulf a superman-not going to happen with BP or our administration-unfortunetly-they are only human.
Did you hear the FDA has released the new food pyramid gidelines-bonni you will like this-more veggies whole grains and fruits-way less meats-if at all. America need to wise up-but will we?
To all who commented while I was at work, a great big thank you. Each of you provided some really important info today and it is such a pleasure to come home and find a great synopsis if the show last night, ( I understand the frustration and totally agree that just knowing what to do is not nearly enough) info about a new food pyramid, (yay…everyone does seem to agree more grains aend veggies are vital to all aspects of our health) info about the RSS feed to this blog (I was gonna ask you, Carole, to check that out for me so thanks, and a reminder for all of us to be grateful for this day!
Carol, if misery loves company I thought I would let you know that I strained some backnrib cage muscles last night doing “wheel” in 7 o’clock class. Not bad but enough to hurt on those deep breaths– but I am doing them.
Thanks everyone! Love you all.
Happy thoughts to all of you……..I am enjoying all the interaction today.
A work friend sent me this link and I am really enjoying what I am reading. Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas, tips and advice.
