How do I accomplish "No Whining!"? By praying continually.
Friday, January 21, 2011      11 comments

I really don't want to whine. I like to be positive, and usually I am. But I've been down lately. I got on the scale and I'm back to 140 pounds. Ugh! Even if I give myself a two pound leeway, that's still 138 (or 142!). I keep trying to exe... Read more

Today some people from our church kindly invited us to dinner at Olive Garden. I failed to check their website before we left, and even though I knew better, I ended up ordering Limoncello Chicken Scallopini...and if the calorie count entered by... Read more
Day 28! 28 Day Bootcamp Workout
Saturday, January 08, 2011      4 comments

Hooray! I did it! It took me 2+ months, but I did it! And did I say Day 5 is the most difficult? I was mistaken. I had forgotten that Day 7 is, by far, the hardest one. Anyway, now that I'm finished, I'm planning on trying new workout ... Read more

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel! I did the Day 6 video this morning, following the same routine as previous days this week. I had planned to go to Curves this morning, but it snowed so I didn't have time to shovel, go to Curves... Read more
Day 26 - 28 Day Bootcamp Workout
Thursday, January 06, 2011      1 comments

Day 5 of video workout completed with alternating cardio. Day 5 is the hardest for me, I think. Well, the core workout is pretty tough, too. But those leg circles kill me every time! Oh, and yesterday I went to Curves, so I didn't count that, th... Read more
Day 25 - 28 Day Bootcamp workout
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      3 comments

Day 25...I think it seemed so far off that I'd never reach a number that close to 28! It feels good, though. This morning I did the alternating cardio routine with the Day 4 video. It was really nice because I was again able to incorporate ... Read more

Monday, January 03, 2011      3 comments

So far, so good. Three days in a row of getting up and exercising/Bible reading/prayer first thing in the morning. I did the Day 3 video, with 30 second cardio intervals. Since the fall I gained back some weight. I'm not sure if it was from... Read more
Day 23 - 28 Day Bootcamp Workout Challenge - A miraculous day!
Sunday, January 02, 2011      2 comments

Today was a miraculous Sunday! Well, miraculous for me, anyway. Sunday is usually a difficult day; I don't know if that's true of all pastor's wives, but it is for me. Several months of the year we have a choir that sings at our 9:00 worsh... Read more

Saturday, January 01, 2011      4 comments

Before I go to bed tonight I had to share with all of you my latest insight. Well, it's not really an insight as much as it is one of those moments when you suddenly realize something. I have really had a problem lately with evening snackin... Read more

I am finally on the 4th week of this challenge! For this final week I'm going to try to do a workout video every day, alternating exercises with 30 seconds of cardio, making it a circuit kind of workout like Curves. Since today's video is c... Read more

Here is a link to an article I found this morning. It doesn't tell us anything new, but it's explained a little differently, so I thought some of you might be interested. Especially see the explanation of why water is so important. http://w... Read more

Thursday, December 23, 2010      1 comments

Day 7 video today...slightly less "Ugh!" Either I'm starting to learn the exercises or my abs are getting a little stronger. It did help that I put the laptop on the floor so I could watch from a better angle. Three weeks into this challeng... Read more
Day 20 - 28 Day Bootcamp Workout - Today I decide to exercise for all over health!
Tuesday, December 21, 2010      3 comments

Finally! I did the Day 6 video and 30 minutes of cardio. Hooray! It's been a long break from this bootcamp workout for me, though I have gone to Curves about three times a week, so it's not like I've been completely off exercising. But toda... Read more

Thursday, December 09, 2010      1 comments

Today I did Days 4 and 5 of the 28 day bootcamp workout videos, as well as the 10 minute Jumpstart cardio video. First, the Jumpstart cardio video called for, well, a lot of jumping. I had trouble with that this morning, but I did what I c... Read more

Tuesday, December 07, 2010      1 comments

Okay. Today I did Days 1, 2 and 3 as a workout. It was pretty good. I still really like Coach Nicole's workout, especially how she points out what to look for to do the exercise correctly, like imagining a steel rod in your spine to keep it stra... Read more
