Nikki-sickly side tracked

I haven’t been doing the best at blogging lately but am hoping my life slows down a little by the end of this week, I have also been trying to still write posts at nikkiinhighgear as well but trying to keep health/exercise focused on this blog and write more random happenings on my other blog.  ANYHOW here I am.  I haven’t done well the last 2 weeks and I’m just going to flat-out say it.

I haven’t worked out since September 18 at the hockey game aka my last post.

I worked 41 hours mon-tues, so literally had NO time to even sleep really, worked on the renos at our second property on Wednesday, my day off (at least that burnt some calories), worked thursday and became illish on friday.  I literally laid on my couch for 14hours watching TV/sleeping until I had to go into work at 11 pm.    Anyways if you know me, I can’t usually watch TV that long unless I’m a tad depressed or sick.  So something was up, it’s just shitty that I felt this way sunday and monday as well.  Sunday I slept for at least 15 hours, which also means I didn’t go to hockey and am only starting to feel kind of normal again this morning.

Ps I have the best boss in the world who worked during the evening so that I could rest and not worry about training 2 staff and having hyper kids home.  Again I’m a youth worker who works in group home where four 15-18 year olds live and it can be challenging some times especially when you don’t feel great.  Also thanks to all my friends who heard or knew I was sick and kept tabs on me! also my cats have never cuddled me so hard before.


I’m feeling a bit down about not getting my workouts in, but my body pretty much went into shutdown this weekend.  I think having so much to do (2 jobs, renovations, coaching basketball coming up, playing basketball and hockey, trying to lose weight and the list goes on) has finally caught up to me and sadly side tracked me from some things.  I really want to be at the gym 5 days a week, but until we finish these renovations I need to put my focus onto that place because we need to finish and sell that place ASAP (it’s one of our main sources of stress)

Here’s the good news, I weighed myself and I’m doing fine, as in I haven’t gained any weight.  Actually may have lost but I’ll figure that all out next week.  I also tried on my wedding dress this morning just for  a little pick-me up and shit did that eve do that trick. Not only do I need more alterations than I did before, but damn I’m excited because my wedding is just shy of 4 months aways in MEXICO!!  oh who’s excited by more alterations? me even thought it will cost some money.  My dress is way loser than it was a few months ago, so even if I haven’t lost weight I know that my weight training is doing the trick-my back looks amazing in the dress right now, if I do say so myself.

So here’s to feeling better and getting back on track.


We’re BACK!!!

Well it’s been a little while since we last posted but we are proud to announce that we will be back to posting about our goals, struggles, accomplishments, and just fun stuff that we get up too.

We both have some new goals to work towards that aren’t just focused on losing weight, though may include still some weight loss, and will be sharing those goals with our lovely readers in the next week or so. 

We’re also going to post our measurements, before photos that we resently took and promise to post at least once a week!
