A Fun Family Workout
Thursday, August 08, 2013      5 comments

I've been feeling a little guilty lately because it seems like my workouts have been taking away so much time from my family. My commute to work is so long, (I commute about 3 hours a day R/T if there is not a traffic accident), then I work all... Read more

Wednesday, August 07, 2013      1 comments

So this week has been all over the map. It went from me being extremely proud of myself because I was able to complete exercise goals, I lost two pounds, and I dropped into the 100s. Then at work one of my bosses passed away suddenly. I w... Read more

Sunday's weigh in was very exciting for me. I had been working so hard all week, staying within my calorie goals every day, tracking my food. Drinking a ton of water. Exercise wise I had been doing my C25K faithfully, and on my "rest" days of... Read more

Tuesday, July 23, 2013      2 comments

I just bought some exercise (resistance) bands to add to my workout routine. Although I've been doing my C25K and feeling really good about that, I'd like to start trying to add some toning workouts on my off cardio days. I figured these would... Read more

I had such a fun weekend. My husband and I packed up my two boys (6 and 4) and went to visit my parents. We left Friday night and returned Sunday. I was really worried about Saturday because I hadn't told my parents I was watching what I was ... Read more

Strangely enough I have really been enjoying my C25k program. I never thought I would enjoy working out like this. Yesterday I completed week 2 and now it's on 2 week 3. I love my app that I have on my phone cheering me on in her British voic... Read more
I don't have a choice but to lose this weight - More motivated than ever!
Monday, July 15, 2013      3 comments

I am motivated in a way that I have never been motivated before to lose weight. For the first time it's really kicking me in the face how this weight really affects your health. I guess I've always just told myself that I'm still too young or ... Read more

I weighed myself yesterday for the first time in about a week and half and I lost 5 pounds (yay!!). I'm trying to not get too excited about it for the following reasons: 1) I might Jinx myself 2) this is the first time in a while I'm s... Read more

I'm a bit stressed between commuting to work (65 miles one way - I'm normally on the road about 2 1/2 hours a day), and now soccer season has come. This is the first "real" soccer season, and I did not realize a 6 year old soccer team was so en... Read more

We had to put our dog Buck that we've had for 13 years to sleep on Friday. He was really struggling with his back legs, and with his size (he was 85 pounds), he just could not support his body anymore. My husband and I have been struggling wit... Read more

Thursday, January 19, 2012      5 comments

My puppy is aging! He's about 13 years old now, and our vet told us recently that he was equivalent to a 90 year old, and that took both me and hubby by suprise. We knew he was getting up there, but just never factored in his size (he's about ... Read more

My husband and I got into an argument last night over something ridiculous (super ridiculous)...we argued over who was going to let the dog out before we went to bed. Not a big deal in itself, but both of us have this super annoying trait of ha... Read more
Help, picky person needs meal ideas!
Friday, January 13, 2012      2 comments

I'm finding that since I am so picky I tend to make the same few meals on the weekend, freeze it, then eat it during the week. With work and the kids I am normally really busy in the evenings. Does anyone have any fast meal ideas for a "non-ve... Read more
