Night To Myself

It doesn't happen often, but I had a night to myself tonight. Sophie and Meliss were over at a friend's house. And, I had the night to do whatever my heart desired. So, what did I do? I spent an hour and a half of no guilt workout at the Y. I lifted biceps and triceps and did 20 minutes on the elliptical machine. Usually I feel bad going to the gym because I can only get there when I would also have the opportunity to spend time with Sophia (my wife too, but she doesn't go to sleep at 8). So, it was a welcome change to workout when I wasn't infringing on family time. Nice..

I had a slow start to this week for weight loss but my mind feels pretty good and ready to close the week strong. I expect another pound at least this week even though I started slow. Only time will tell.

Good for you! Time well spent.

It's like the Field of Dreams adage, "If you build it (your fitness!), it (the weight loss) will come." ;-)

Nice... I love that movie. Not a big Costner fan though. You gotta like James Earl Jones though.

Nice one Eric! Very committed...

My wife works 7am to 7pm twice a week. They're my nights for running, biking and ab work, before I shower and rush downstairs to cook dinner.

Keep up the good work!

I feel you on feeling guilty when you miss out on time with the kiddos. I have to set limits. I do all my runs during the week before they get up and then I get one weekend morning to do either a long run or a race. Consider the positive also - that you're going to probably have more years of your life to enjoy with your kids from excercising than if you didn't.
