Cardio
Monday, January 04, 2021      1 comments

Today I tried out a gym with my neighbor called Blush Boot Camp. It was cardio and core day, and we did an hour of intense cardio and core exercises. At my current weight and fitness level I was not able to keep up, and had to do a lot of the m... Read more
Feeling great and working toward my goals
Wednesday, February 06, 2019      3 comments

Went to the doctor today and I am down 12 pounds in 3 weeks. Since the beginning of the year I am down almost 20 pounds which is my first goal. It feels great to be making progress and seeing results. My pants are loose, and I can tighten my bel... Read more

On Wednesday my mom suggested we workout after work. She works at a PT office and they have a ton of equipment we can use for free! Hooray! I knew to start slow because I havent exercised in years, so I planned to do 10 minutes on the elliptica... Read more
Weigh-in?
Thursday, January 03, 2019      3 comments

I weighed myself this morning straight out of the shower, before eating, before getting dressed, and the scale said I am down 5.8 lbs. Yay! I have been doing pretty good this week, but I wonder if I am cheating myself. When I entered my startin... Read more
2019 is coming and I am ready to change.
Monday, December 31, 2018      1 comments

When I had my daughter in 2015 I thought "she will keep me young and active", but the reality is that I have become less and less active in the past few years. I want to be a good example for my children, and I know that means eating what I want... Read more
Dinner with the family
Tuesday, October 28, 2014      2 comments

all too often I don't feel like I have time to make dinner and we end up at a fast food place. Mostly it is that I don't have a plan, and it requires so much more effort to prepare dinner when you have to dig through the fridge and freezer to fi... Read more
Day 11 - ugh swimsuit
Thursday, July 21, 2011      1 comments

I am headed out of town tomorrow to go on a family float trip. Unfortunately that means I have to wear a swimsuit. I have been putting it off all week, but tonight I was packing and I had to try on all of my old swimsuits to see if there is one ... Read more
Day 9 - I love omelets
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      2 comments

A few weeks ago I bought two cartons of eggs when they were on sale and decided to finally learn how to make an omelet. The few times I had tried before always ended with scrambled eggs. This time I did a little online research and it paid off! ... Read more
Day 7 - I want a bike
Sunday, July 17, 2011      2 comments

I'm thinking about buying a bike. My boys love their bikes, and any time I tell them we are going for a walk they ask "can we ride our bikes." They love going for "walks", and in fact this week as soon as I get home from work they start asking m... Read more
Day 6 - lazy Saturday
Saturday, July 16, 2011      2 comments

I think I am dehydrated. I woke up with a terrible headache and I'm pretty sure it is the result of my walk last night in this ridiculous heat and humidity. I drank water, but I probably sweat more than I drank. I have not been interested ... Read more
Day 5 - need new shoes
Friday, July 15, 2011      0 comments

Last year when I was working out diligently I bought a new pair of running shoes. I loved those shoes and I only used them when I was working out or running/walking, so they are still in excellent shape... except they do not fit! I'm not su... Read more

Today began with a car that would not start. This is a recently purchased 2008 vehicle, and I just replaced the battery two weeks ago. Ugh! Looks like its going to be in the shop soon. After my husband came home and gave it a jump start I... Read more
Day 3 back on the plan
Wednesday, July 13, 2011      0 comments

I feel a little like an addict that has to start back at D1. There are some hard realities to face, and a little bit of shame over how much I have gained. I am almost 30 pounds heavier than I was when I started in January 2010. The part tha... Read more
My first 5k
Monday, May 10, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday I completed my first 5k. I trained for about 9 weeks using the Couch to 5k program. This was a major accomplishment for me. I wanted to be able to run the whole thing. I ended up walking a few times, but I still finished almost t... Read more
Today and some ramblings about calories
Saturday, May 01, 2010      4 comments

Today I will get back in the cardio routine. It has been two weeks of excuses! Thankfully the numbers are still going down, but that's because I have been tracking my food and eating healthy. The nutrition part isn't hard for me anymore. ... Read more
