Winter is Coming
Thursday, October 25, 2012      1 comments

Thinking really hard about needing new winter coats. Plural because you need a long coat for for when you are all dressed up, a car length wool coat, and a warm, hardwearing jacket for playing in the snow. (Not sure if I'll be able to try i... Read more

So much to blog about... Yesterday being Tuesday, I had my morning session with the personal trainer (PT). I love these sessions because I learn so much more to do in the way of weight training. When I am by myself in the weight room at the... Read more

Well, I changed a few things in my routine and boy is it working! I am one pound down between yesterday and today. To the lady who said in my comments that I should try not to weigh daily because a person doesn't burn however-many-calories... Read more
Photo Fit

I need more photos for my blog here. I have no photos since I started weight training and lost a lot of inches. Although I am still wearing some size 16 clothing, I'm doing that because it's what I have. I really do consider myself a size 14 now... Read more
Music Makes a Workout
Sunday, October 21, 2012      1 comments

Sometime today I decided that one of my problems with working out on the elliptical machine was that I didn't have the right music. Music is so important to my cardio workout. I have a great set of walking songs for the treadmill. There are... Read more
Weight Review
Saturday, October 20, 2012      4 comments

One of my IRL weight loss buddies keeps marvelling at my rate of weight loss. I never thought about it myself, because I get so caught up in the stubborn days of no change on the scale, that when the weight loss does come -- in quick little wave... Read more
Doing It!

Starting to really think about whether I can actually make 160 by the absolute date of December 31, 2012. And then I realized... if I don't make 160, that's okay. It's probably going to be around 161 or 162 at that point anyway, and I am j... Read more
Under 175, For Reals!
Thursday, October 18, 2012      0 comments

Yay! This morning I am on a downward wave again, and far enough under 175 pounds to call it 174! The scale read 174.4 this morning! SparkPeople says I have lost 28 pounds. That is within sweating distance of 30 pounds and my next troph... Read more
New Playlist for Treadmill
Wednesday, October 17, 2012      1 comments

Today is going to be a tough day, one in a series in a tough week, but I'm not going to think about it. I already accomplished something today. I went to the gym. I made up a new playlist for the treadmill last night, and I decided to try i... Read more

Today I had my weekly session with a personal trainer (PT). PT keeps telling me that I and my husband are very different from other clients -- without mentioning anyone in particular, just speaking about trends -- because we are willing to work ... Read more
Epic Emotions

Yesterday morning at the gym a weird thing happened. I am hoping it's just one of those things that sometimes happens and it's not just me. If it's just me, then...wow...issues. Okay, so here is what happened: I was on the treadmill, doing ... Read more
Superhero Boots

So today (er, yesterday, since this was posted *just* after midnight) I went with a friend to an event that I thought would be outdoors, on the grounds of an auditorium, which, to my mind, would be like a "fairground" -- wet, muddy, and dirty. S... Read more
In Which I Cast a Cynical Eye on the Power of Blogging
Friday, October 12, 2012      1 comments

I just saw an ad for a LIVESTRONG recumbent bicycle on sale for 60% off. I am going to ignore the little voice that keeps telling me it would be a good idea to go out and buy it. It would definitely not be a good idea to buy it, because 1.) we h... Read more
Same Old, Same Old

Back down to 175.4 again, even though I went out to lunch for all-you-can-eat sushi yesterday. (By the way, I can pig out on sushi and still stay within range. Which I did. This is because I knew in advance and I planned for it.) At the gym... Read more
Celebrating the Team Effort
Wednesday, October 10, 2012      0 comments

My husband and I are a team. We are making this journey together. The fun thing about travelling this weight loss road with DH is that I get to share in his joy at losing weight, too. So even while I am lamenting (sort of) the fact that my ... Read more
