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

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

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

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

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

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

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
