Are U wearing the results?
Thursday, January 12, 2012      0 comments

I think accountability and honesty are so important in any weight loss program. Today I was reading an article in a fitness magazine about that topic. There was one line that really struck me - "You are either wearing your results or you're n... Read more

For me, how I perform on Monday sets the tune for my whole week. I rocked today and am looking forward to a great week. Today was week 6, day 3 of P90X, plus I added 35 minutes of extra cardio AND for the first time in months, I recorded every... Read more
Back Again . . .
Monday, April 04, 2011      1 comments

So here I am . . . starting over . . . again . . . 25 lbs heavier than I was at the end of last summer. I am always skeptical about making a big deal out of "starting my healthy lifestyle/diet" because I have fallen off the wagon too many ... Read more

It's a new year - time for a new beginning. So here I am again - starting over on SP, one year from when I first started. I'm hoping for better success this time around. The most important thing for me as a mom of 4 young kids is to make myse... Read more
Pantry Problems
Wednesday, September 29, 2010      2 comments

I know how to eat healthy and exercise. I love to exercise - that's not the problem. The problem is that I have junk in my pantry and when I get stressed out from my kids, or need to celebrate a victory or nurse a defeat or am just plain bored... Read more

I was proud of myself today. I was having a good day, and then my 4-year got nasty. I sent him to his room and he sat up there screaming and fussing while the baby was trying to nap. I went upstairs to quiet him down and all I could think abo... Read more

A week ago I decided that I needed to recommit to SP, start logging my food again, etc, etc. I had regained some lbs that I had lost. But today when I weighed in, I had lost the lbs I regained, plus lost an extra lb. I was thrilled! I have n... Read more

They say that 40 is the new 30 - well I'm about to find out! Today is my 40th b-day. Back at the end of January when I started SP, I made a promise to myself that I would lose my first 20 lbs by my 40th b-day, as a gift to myself. Well,... Read more

At the beginning of January I went to the doctor and had a physical and blood work done. The blood work showed that my triglycerides were high so they put me on fish oil tablets and told me to eat a low-fat diet, exercise more and come back in... Read more
Day 3 - P90X
Wednesday, March 24, 2010      3 comments

Today was day 3 of P90X - Arms and shoulders and Ab Ripper X. I am totally loving this program! I'm not sure I will be "beach body" ready after 90 days, but I will be in a lot better shape than I am currently in. The scale is finally moving ... Read more
P90X - Day 1

I started P90X today. It was chest/back and ab ripper X. I've never done so many push ups in my life. I couldn't do one pull up, but was able to do them assisted with the use of a chair. The good news is, I have so much to improve upon that ... Read more

Just one bite
Friday, March 12, 2010      3 comments

I feel like I'm always blogging about food. I guess that is because it is one of my biggest foes! (That and my mind!) :) I did great all day and actually was way under my calories so when Papa John's arrived at the door with my kids' cheese ... Read more

Been so busy I haven't had time to Spark lately. Seems like when it rains it pours. Fortunately, I'm still getting my workouts in this week. I've been doing my P90 workouts and HIIT on the treadmill. It is amazing how the few minutes of runn... Read more

I'm feeling a bit down. For the past 2 weeks I've been doing pretty good - working out really hard and staying within my calorie range; however, I am stuck around 190. I go up a few lbs and back to 190, but I swear I cannot dip into the 180s! ... Read more
