Shrinkvivor - Week 2

Well this has been an interesting week. Last Thursday morning I woke up with a sore throat. That sore throat quickly progressed into an all out, no holds barred, head and chest cold. Needless to say, my ability to rack up fitness minutes for week 1's challenge was seriously hampered. They weren't very energetic minutes, but I managed to eek out 200 minutes. My loss was not great, just .6, but I've been drinking so many fluids this week (and it's almost TOM, too) that I'm lucky I had a loss at all.

I finally was able to get back to the gym yesterday evening. My trainer was there, he was apologetic, and he does owe me a few sessions. I don't know why, since my telephone number was correct in the gym computer system, but he was calling another gym member's number last week trying to get in touch with me. That was a fail. But all's well that ends well. I had a good session last night and will have another make up session today. I'm glad our physical challenge will be tracking fitness minutes again - I have to redeem myself now that I'm not constantly coughing up my lungs. Hmmm. Does dancing at a Duran Duran concert count as fitness minutes?

Last week's mini-challenge, not eating fast food, wasn't too difficult for me since I rarely do. This week's mini-challenge, getting more sleep, will be much more difficult. I rarely get enough sleep, but I'm willing to sacrifice some waking hours for the tribe!


  1. Hope you are starting to feel better and that cold has worked itself out of your system. 200 minutes is great and you did a wonderful job.

    Good luck this coming week.

  2. Hope you feel better! Have a great week!

  3. I really enjoy reading your blog!
    I too am trying to get fit...much harder when you live in Texas! Hope you are feeling better!!
