So, I have an "Other Goal" to go to the gym three times a week. However, this morning instead of visiting the gym and walking on the treadmill, I went outside in the crisp, cool air and did a two-mile walk around the neighbourhood. I'm not ... Read more
BMI, Again
Wednesday, May 01, 2013      0 comments

As I've gone along this weight loss journey, in the back of my mind my goal has been to have a "healthy BMI" according to the regular measurements. So, I'm getting there, but with a BMI at greater than 26 (by traditional standards), I still have... Read more
Travelling and a Summer Wardrobe Dilemma
Tuesday, April 30, 2013      1 comments

Our trainer at the gym is trying to get my husband and me to write a testimonial to show off our hard work. I would be glad to do it, but I wish I had some kind of example to follow for what they want. Well, since our gym belongs to a major chai... Read more
Morning versus Evening Workouts
Sunday, April 28, 2013      1 comments

Today DH and I had a lazy Sunday morning because we decided that we would go to the gym in the evening instead. Well! Let me tell you! I have gotten used to my mornings at the gym, and I didn't like being there in the evening half as much. First... Read more
The Stereotypical Jeans Photo
Saturday, April 27, 2013      3 comments

Here I am, finally, posting that old cliche, the jeans photo. That is, the one where you put a pair of your current jeans down on top of a pair that you wore at your highest weight. Well, this is it... ... Read more
New Things: Calories, Music, and Kettlebells
Friday, April 26, 2013      0 comments

My patience has been pretty good this week. Not perfect. For example, I didn't shout at family members, but I did call some of my fellow drivers names as I tried to navigate the highway on busy mornings. Luckily my destination was the gym, and I... Read more

I'm going to do a fun fashion post today. At the bottom of this post is a photo of me in my favourite butterfly-patterned jeans. Also my favourite moto jacket for spring, with my favourite animal-print scarf and a cool pair of wedge sneakers wit... Read more
A Study in Patience
Tuesday, April 23, 2013      0 comments

My husband is travelling for work this week and I am going it alone for a couple of days. I was remarkably relaxed today considering the week I have ahead of me. I'm sure I will not be this... patient... by the time Friday rolls around. Tod... Read more
Setting and Achieving Goals
Monday, April 22, 2013      0 comments

All of us have that feeling of not liking to set precise times for our goals because then we might miss them. But here's the thing. That's just a feeling, and a feeling is an excuse. Because the key to actually achieving goals is to set a precis... Read more
Not a Typical Sunday
Sunday, April 21, 2013      1 comments

Today was not really a typical, relaxing Sunday. One thing though, I had a great workout today. DH and I had plenty of time to spend at the gym, so I did some strength training concentrating on the lower body. Then for cardio I did a half-... Read more
Having a Personal Trainer: My Experience
Saturday, April 20, 2013      3 comments

(With a shout out to OLIVIANIGHT, because parts of this blog post are a rework of a message I sent to her earlier today.) One of the things that works very well for my husband and me about having a personal trainer (PT) is that we hired one... Read more
Weird Week and a New Cardio Routine
Thursday, April 18, 2013      2 comments

It's been a weird week. My personal trainer is sick, so I missed my session on Tuesday. (We will have a make-up session at some point, probably next week.) I did do my own workout -- but I never get the same variety of exercises when I do ... Read more
Shopping Spree!
Sunday, April 14, 2013      2 comments

Went cross-border shopping at a US outlet mall today. One thing I definitely needed was a new spring coat, since the one I just got rid of was a size 2X. Yes, I just replaced it with a new insulated trench coat -- in size S! I didn't... Read more
Life Below 150
Saturday, April 13, 2013      1 comments

Since I got below 150 pounds, things have changed in subtle ways. It's not just the physical changes, as in not liking how the remaining fat is distributed on my body, but also some mental changes. I do not get the same joy from going to the gym... Read more
Where Did My Bum Go?!
Thursday, April 11, 2013      2 comments

What's the worst case scenario for a woman who is losing weight, when she thinks ahead to how she will eventually look when she is finally at a healthy weight? I guess a lot of us would say something like, "Well, your bust shrinks double-ti... Read more
