Personal Record & Derailing!
Sunday, June 10, 2012      1 comments

This is an odd combo I know. I find that I can be successful losing weight, but I eventually get derailed. I feel like once I feel successful, I start getting off track. Once I am off track it is very hard to get off track. Latel... Read more

New Job
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      7 comments

I am starting my new job tomorrow. Finally - this past month and a half has been very stressful. Uncertainty is so hard! I have kept up my exercise for the most part, and 70% of my diet has been good, but I have been straying a bit. I have g... Read more

For my first race :) I'm running the Race to Wrigley 5K on April 24. I am excited. My goal is finish and hopefully do it in under 30 minutes, but really I just want to finish and run the entire race (no walking). One of the women o... Read more
2010 and still chugging along
Sunday, January 03, 2010      3 comments

All in all 2009 was a good year. I lost 20 lbs. Not amazing, but I'm happy they are gone. I'd like to make 2010 a 50 lb year, but I will be happy to at least knock another 20 off for good. I had to have a small surgery on my foot over ... Read more
Week 1
Friday, January 09, 2009      2 comments

Week 1 of 2009 went really well. I stayed below 2000 calories everyday. I did 4 Jillian Michaels circuits and I biked 10 miles twice. I did not get to the step class or go running. My foot has been hurting me and it is my first week back int... Read more
Erg. . .
Thursday, August 07, 2008      3 comments

OK well the past month or so I seemed to be not losing or losing very slowly (.5lbs/week). But this week I have gained 3 lbs. Erg! I have not been eating like I should, but I have been working out so hard. It is frustrating. I need to... Read more

Last night I was doing a Jillian Michael's circuit in the aerobics studio at my gym. There were other people in there working out - including a trainer and his client. The idea for the circuit is you go from one exercise to the next without a ... Read more
Still moving. . .
Saturday, July 26, 2008      4 comments

Slowly but surely I will make progress. I've gone back to Jillian Michael's circuit workouts from the book Winning By Losing. OMG they are tough! Thursday I did week 1 day 1. Friday I did week 1 day 2 and a mile and a half run. To... Read more
Mixing it up
Wednesday, July 23, 2008      3 comments

So after seeing the scale move on Monday morning, I decided to keep mixing up my workouts a little. I did step class again Monday night. Then last night I did 30 minutes on the bike. I have to bike a lot harder than I run and I still burn few... Read more
Weekend Update - busting my plateau
Monday, July 21, 2008      3 comments

Well I have been stuck on a plateau for about a month or so. I have been working out a lot and eating well overall - and within my calorie range most days. I thought I should switch up my workouts a little, so I did the step class on Wednesday... Read more
7/16 - Step Class
Thursday, July 17, 2008      2 comments

I decided to do step class last night. It went pretty well. I have been on the treadmill a lot lately and I seem to be hitting a plateau, so I thought I could switch it up a little bit. I started out with 2 risers on each side, but had ... Read more
7/15 Running - Intervals
Thursday, July 17, 2008      0 comments

Well I didn't really feel like running, but I did it anyways. I did 9 intervals 2 mins at 4.0 mph and 1 min at 8.0 mph then a 3 minute cool down. I ended up going about 2.5 miles. Not too bad. Thank you for all the comments - I fee... Read more
7/14 Run
Monday, July 14, 2008      3 comments

I'm really eager to get up to 3 miles in 30 minutes, but I need to be patient. My wind is good - I'm not huffing and puffing, but my legs are burning real bad. So I think I just need to get stronger. Tonight I did my 2 minutes warm up, ... Read more
7/12 PUMP
Saturday, July 12, 2008      5 comments

I did pump this morning. I hadn't done it in a couple of months. The weights seemed really light so I think my lifting on my own has worked out pretty well, I seem to be gaining strength.... Read more
