Time to feel good!

I can never do the same fitness plan/workout for a long time. I get bored, so I'm constantly changing my workout plans. I can do it if it's a short term plan. I plan my workouts for a week at a time and that seems to work the best for me. My work schedule is never the same and because I work nights it's hard to workout at the same time everyday, so I take it day by day and week by week.
Right now I'm counting calories and limiting my sugar intake (I like sweet things way too much). I'm trying to eat healthier and focusing on vegetables and protein.
My workout plan for the last few weeks have been to run on my days off. I usually take my big doggy Charcoal along (pictured to the right :). He basically drags me into a run. He's strong but he is getting old and fat and so am I, so we going to workout together.
So days I work or days in between work, I do strengthening and/or abs, usually something off of Pinterest. It's a see-how-I-feel-that-day sort of plan. I'm not so rigid with the workouts but I am with the diet. That's where I struggle, but it's what makes me lose faster. Go figure.
So far (I've been doing this for about a week) it's been real good and I feel real good. I use MyFitnessPal to track my diet and I make sure I do some sort of workout daily. I definitely feel more energetic and that's saying something. My motives are to feel good and then to look good. It takes work, but I want to enjoy it! And I am!

Metro Monday???

I took a little trip on the light rail today, all the way to downtown Phoenix. I was visiting an old college professor.  It was nice to be on the light rail once again. I know it's been awhile since my last ride cause I don't recognize any of the metro security. I saw a lot of the usual characters:
The guy with too much hair
The guy who looks like he'll cut you
The girl talking way to loudly about her "crazy love life"
The general creepers
The obvious druggie
The half asleep college students
The man mumbling to himself
The foreigners speaking their languages
And the lovely lady with her 15 bags.
They brought back a lot of the old memories and smells that the powerful AC can't hinder.
Good times.
