Hope o be back to normal soon.

I haven't posted for a while, as I keep overdoing it and hurting myself. The thing with being on strike is I hav to walk 4 hours a day...so that has mostly been my workout as of late. Whenever I do mroe I tend to over do it...altho this weekend we werew at a Star Wars themed dance party and I am AMAZED at how long I can dance for now...it's crazy. i stretched out throroughly after and I'm not the least but stiff....CRAZY.
Never fear...once the picketing is over (oh please oh please) I'll be back to regular workout updates...but for now it's a bit less exciting than normal. Hope normal is back soon...

Finally

Finally was a good girl and got in a solid workout today.
After sleeping in a bit, I did 45 minutes on the elliptical machine followed by some stretches.
My legs are a bit stiff, and my sides are ticklish after a lot of situps, but I feel WAY better.
I even tried to be healthy, having some poached eggss and multigrain toast (one of my favorite things) for breakfast.
I ended up snarfing some food in mall alter today, but it was healthy stuff, so today makes up for yesterday, which involved large amounts of beef jerky and some chips while watching a movie (Which I'd highly recommend by the way. Rent the movie Stay if you can - very slick style and very original story. And it has Ewan Mcgregor in it too...mmm hmmmm)
And now I must go help put with a charity art auction for the community radio station. Being broke at a place full of beautiful art will be sucky, but at least I can be somewhere posh and munch some tasty finger food and help out a good cause.
Later...

Been away haven't I?

I've been a bad girl with this exercise and posting. I could say that I have been walking 4 hours a day...but I haven't worked out this week yet. I know I know...I've quite tired from it all after being out in the windy cold and haven't felt well the past few days...but I will work out tomorrow. Honest. For now, I should try and kick off this headache and be off to picket (o boy).
Hope this is over soon...

Beautiful day!

It was a beautiful day today - a great day to be outside.
It was about 0 degrees, hardly any wind and sunny and warm.
After a few frozen windy days on the picket line, today was a real relief. We even had coffee today...we're moving on up!

This morning I got up and did 42 minutes on the crosstrainer and some stretching and situps. it's odd, the machine counts the calories burned and says I burned 542...but I find that hard to believe. I wonder how accurate those counters are anyways. I was encouraged last night when I did some stretching - I caught a glance of my abs in the mirror - well la de da...they're quite the thing at the mo. I'm gettting a washboard...crazy. I suppose working out and walking 4 hours a day can help out your body...we'll see. It's giving me freckles at any rate! It's just a bit too cold to run in the morning, even with my modified hours fromt he strike shifts and after 4 hours out walking and encouraging the picketers on my shift I don't think I'd have the energy to work out.
I'll keep at my workouts. I sure miss running though - something about being outside...sure I'm outside on the line, but it's not the same...but I'll be good. I refuse to let winter to turn me into a potato.

I'm off to make cookies for my picket team. Bye!

Getting me down

So I slept in again today...this whole business about being out on strike has me wigged out. Being picket captain I spent all night calling my picket team to give them info...exhausting.
We're not out yet...but I can't see it not happening.
*sigh*
Altho I'm trying to be positive. ...like at least I can sleep in a bit and work out and picket all in one day.

But, honestly, right now it makes me just want to nap all day...
I'm gonna have to work out tomorrow. This is getting me down...
