Happy Sunday!!

I took Saturday off from my Physiqueing because I was beat and I was sore and I had a ton of stuff to do yesterday.  I had a good weekend tho and I didn't feel guilty because I knew I would do my Physique 57 workout today.  I did, woot woot for me :).  It's fun to admit to myself that I really do feel good when I am getting some exercise time in.  I am still struggling with the abs work tho (bummer, because I really want to work on that area :/) but I have a hard time with positioning the mats on my lower back.  I will find a way that works tho.  I'm switching between my pillows, towels, kiddie mat and my Physique 57 ball.  I wish my private instructor was here to help me...hint hint Holly Boo!

Saturday was a really busy day...I had to take Tiffy back to the vet because she has been miserable with skin allergies and gets really bad when the pollens are going nuts or it's windy out.  Last week I had to take her in for a steroid shot and an antibiotic shot so yesterday was a re-check with Dr. Laura.  The shots worked and her skin looks much better but now she has an eye infection.  Oh my $10k Yorkie pup!! While Tiffy was back with Dr. Laura having her eyes checked...I just couldn't resist making this:

It's amazing how many pictures I have of Miss Tiffy on my iPhone...this is not even all of them.

Yesterday after Tiffy's appointment we did a impromptu trip to Disneyland.  Nothing beats seeing the Happiest Place on Earth through the eyes of little ones. It pays to be a season pass holder.  I never thought I would enjoy it as much as I do...but it's really fun. Especially because it's only about 20 minutes from home.

Jon and Steph came up and stayed the night which always makes me so happy.  I love when my kids are around...I just wish my other two were not 3000 miles away and I look forward to the day when we all live in the same place again :)

So, on this lovely Sunday evening, I'm finishing up laundry, had some wedding pictures printed up, went to Ikea to buy some frames, did my Physique 57 workout (hello Tanya), and feel really good.  No complaints from this girl.  I feel like it's gonna be a good week.

Until next time my fellow Physiquesians...

Friday the 13th!

Most people find Friday the 13th a bad day full of superstitions...bad luck...and uneasy feelings.  I however love Friday the 13th.  I don't recall anytime in my life that something bad happened to me on Friday the 13th.  Today was a particularly wonderful Friday the 13th.  I had an awesome nights sleep last night...probably because I Physiqued before going to bed.  I had a good day at work.  I was invited to dinner with some good friends.  I had a great conversation with my newlyweds and I Physiqued again tonight.  I feel great!

I'm again on a roll with my Physique 57 workouts....I'm a big post-it notes is my newest one. I will be making modifications to this as I continue with my Physique 57 workouts so I can stay on track. 
Woot Woot...I'm 2 for 2 :)

Until next time my fellow Physiquesians...
Happy Friday the 13th.

Don't stop...Don't stop...

"When no one is joining in on your pity party, maybe its time you left too."

I found this quote tonight and I loved it!  I was definitely having a pity party and it wasn't getting me anywhere.  I am done, over it, ready to get past it.  

I was falling back into my old ways and making excuses...those dang old Suzie excuses.  I have been a slacker--I've not been Physiqueing.  Yes, I've done my Physique 57 workouts here and there so I could tell myself that I was Physiqueing but I really wasn't.  I've had a ton on my mind lately - a lot of heart ache and hurt feelings and stress so I was ignoring all kinds of stuff and making all kinds of excuses not to do my Physique 57 workouts.  I was telling myself that my pants aren't really too tight; my unmentionables still fit....blah blah I must be in good shape. Yeah, right!!.  The only person who was miserable it seems was I have turned over a new leaf...I'm not gonna worry about people or things that I cannot control and be thankful for who I am and what and I have and know that the people that mean the most to me are all that matter to me. that I have that off my chest...I'm gonna brave it and do something I've been putting off doing for a long time because I just plain didn't want to do it...but...I'm posting the dreaded "before" picture to start my soon to be transformation! Arghhhhh, I guess if I see it I will want to change it !! I just noticed something so funny....notice the basket of magazines and Jessica Alba looking up at me as if she is saying...go Suzie go :)

I also set some realistic goals for myself. I figured if I was successful in giving up Starbucks for Lent.....46 whole days and I didn't cheat once...then I can Physique until June when I go see my Jersey Girl and my SIL and my grand puppy.  

When I head to Jersey City...

I'm gonna do this....

And reward myself with this :) 

So, I'm super happy to say that I'm feeling pretty good tonight.  I'm happy to be back Physiqueing....I'm feeling really really good.  I got some gentle little nudges along the way from H & N to get me back on track.  My Baby Girl told me just the other day that the hardest part is getting started again (she was right, as usual) and N said that pressing "play" is the first step. Well ladies...I'm back.  

Fun blog updates will be coming...I have a ton of fun stuff to share.  My baby boy got married...I've been wanting to share the details and pictures with everyone. BTW...I got into that amazing MOG dress I was working towards and I felt amazing and looked lovely (if I do say so myself)...

So, until next time my fellow Physiquesians......remember to keep pulsing and squeezing :)
