Somehow I have injured my hand. The meaty part of my right palm near the thumb is quite tender and this morning I knew that I would have to opt out of dragon boating tonight to avoid aggravating it further. That left me feeling a bit out of sorts.

Then, after quite a bit of pondering, I had to make the decision to stop going to the gym I was trying out. My hubby and I are simply too strapped for cash due to all the extra events that have been taking place over the past couple of months and which are still coming up in July. I was fine with taking advantage of my free pass when I thought there was somewhat of a possibility of me joining, but once I knew I couldn’t if I wanted to, I just felt too guilty to keep using the facilities. The staff have been so nice these past few days though that I phoned the owner to let him know why I would not be coming back. It’s a shame. I really may have considered becoming a member were my finances a little more accommodating.

So I am left with a bit of a bad taste in my mouth due to the crimps in my exercise plans. I hope tomorrow will be better, but the motivation is really lacking at this moment…

- 10 glasses of water
- 1 wrap on a soft tortilla shell with deli ham, cheese, dried cranberries, spinach, fat free Miracle Whip, mustard, and pepper
- 2 slices white toast with light peanut butter and light strawberry jam
- 2 cups instant lemon pudding
- 4 cups Vector cereal
- 1 1/4 cups steamed broccoli, mushrooms, onion, and green beans with margarine
- 1/2 baked potato with margarine, sour cream, and chives
- 1 cup pan-fried sliced beef with onions
- 2 cups vanilla ice cream with chocolate chips, peppermint flavouring, and sprinkles

- 10 squats


  1. Finances SUCK! I wish no one had to worry about stuff like that!

  2. Sorry about the injury and the financial setbacks, but I'd encourage you to stick with the blogging. I know that, for me, it keeps the focus on what I'm doing and holds me accountable in a way that I simply can't do on my own. There have literally been times when I've gone to raid the snack pantry and stopped because I didn't want to post a weigh-in gain on my blog. Hey, whatever works...

  3. I made the same decision you just made re: the gym membership for the same reason. There are tons of ways to get/be fit without the gym though I absolutely LOVED my gym and would go back in a heartbeat if $ allowed. There is something about the daily discipline of going somewhere and doing something good for our bodies that is motivating and kick starts some really good habits.

    So, I hope you find something regular to replace the gym, and SOON to get your motivation back. You have just come so far!!!

  4. Sorry about the injury. Hopefully you can find some sort of middle ground for a successful exercise program. Lots of things can be done without a gym membership. Take what you've learned and adapt them to what you have at your disposal.

  5. I'm not overly worried about the gym; I have done most of my workouts without one in the past. It is just unfortunate that I had to make the decision due to finances. :(

    Jack, you are so right and that's pretty much why I made the decision I did. Even if the writing itself is less than stellar right now, at least I am doing it.

  6. Link exchange is nothing else but it is just placing the other person's blog link on your page at appropriate place and other person will also do same for you.
