I want it all!
Thursday, June 17, 2010      5 comments

I want to do heavy weights. I want to learn more fighting. I want to lose weight. I want to be a strong, badass chick. Also, I want to eat pizza. Right now, I can't figure out how to work heavy weights back into my workout rotation. I ... Read more
Fight Mode
Tuesday, June 15, 2010      2 comments

Lately my workouts have been focused more on martial arts. My new trainer has a martial arts/MMA background, and he's been using more fighting technique in my workouts (punching/kicking drills, etc). He teaches the MMA class I currently take o... Read more
Forced to rest, again!
Monday, May 24, 2010      0 comments

I think I may need to start actually planning a day of rest from working out in my schedule. I don't want to, because a lot of the "working out" that I do is fun. There's the beach body bootcamp, the MMA class, Krav Maga, and the training in g... Read more
Then vs. Now
Thursday, May 13, 2010      4 comments

I've just started reading over my old posts. It's interesting. Here's a quick look: Then: "I can do a full lap around the indoor track at jogging speed" Now: I've pushed past a mile (13 laps) at jogging speed, nonstop. Then: ... Read more
Something new!
Wednesday, May 12, 2010      0 comments

I've been to a couple of MMA classes now. Though the class has just started up and it's still more conditioning than technique, it's awesome. I'm learning new stuff while pushing myself to do more. My weekend workout is so much more fun l... Read more
New habits
Monday, May 03, 2010      0 comments

Before I started this (and actually even months into it), I didn't eat a lot of veggies. I'd buy them, and they'd rot in the fridge. Well, lately that's changed. I just recently went to Costco, and bought the following: A bag of frozen ... Read more
I can't always listen to my body
Thursday, April 29, 2010      2 comments

Sometimes, my body lies to me. It tells me I really need to sleep that extra 15 minutes. It says "I'm shaking, make it stop". It tells me I have a headache, I'm too sore, too tired, have too much tension in my neck. It tells me all these... Read more
Size 6? Since When?
Monday, April 26, 2010      2 comments

Yes, I bought my first size 6 in over 10 years. While not everything I wear is a size 6, 6-8 is a good place to be. I haven't seen single-digit sizes in a long damn time. Obviously my goal is to be a "real" size 6, as in buying clothes in... Read more
Making the most of my trainer
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      2 comments

My trainer gets frustrated sometimes. Occasionally it's the limitations my shoulder put on me, or the issues with my lung function. Usually, though, when he talks to me about what pisses him off, it's clients that refuse to put in the work, wh... Read more
It's not "falling off the wagon" if you've got a death grip on the bumper
Monday, March 29, 2010      3 comments

I am not consistent. At all. I don't do morning cardio every day even though I'm supposed to. I don't do my cardio twice a day on non-session days, even though I'm supposed to. But this wagon has something to grab onto, and I have a stro... Read more
I like charts and guides
Friday, March 19, 2010      0 comments

I've finally gotten my trainer to give me more of a 'hard numbers' guide for my eating, a complete meal plan in the form of "this many servings of carbs for breakfast" kind of thing. He doesn't do it for his clients normally because apparen... Read more
Sloooooow...
Monday, March 15, 2010      2 comments

Everything in my weight loss process is slowing down like crazy. My body fat % drops slow, my weight loss is crawling. I sometimes go weeks without dropping any weight. My measurements haven't changed for a while, at least a month. My ... Read more
Stir-crazy
Wednesday, March 10, 2010      0 comments

Waaay too much rest going on. It's only day 3 of my forced week of rest. Even though I'm still supposed to do cardio, going to the gym and NOT doing everything else is just... dull. To make it worse, the eye candy level at the gym is dwin... Read more
Tough Love - I Has It
Monday, March 08, 2010      0 comments

I think for most of my adult life (all 10 or so years of it), I was too easy on myself. Everything was "good enough". My work was good enough, my looks were good enough, my health was good enough. Basically I was complacent. When I see t... Read more
Too much math
Thursday, March 04, 2010      0 comments

I really hate trying to calculate how much I should eat, how much I am eating, etc. It doesn't help that I don't actually know how many calories I burn a day with all the exercise I've been doing lately. I can estimate the cardio, but that's o... Read more
