I Heart Fins
Friday, April 24, 2009      0 comments

So I've never done kicking drills wearing fins before. I've snorkled and scuba dived (dove?) and I know fins are great and make you go fast, but I've never used them in the pool. Lap fins are a lot smaller than snorkling fins, but it's the same ... Read more
Darn Shoulder
Thursday, April 23, 2009      0 comments

I'm having problems with my right shoulder again. Yesterday during my workout, it started aching toward the end. I iced it while I was getting ready for work, and last night laying on the heating pad seemed to make it feel better. Still, I woke ... Read more
Up the Calories
Wednesday, April 22, 2009      2 comments

I'm trying to figure out a good way to increase my calories, without increasing the carbs too much. Now that I can eat some fruit and whole wheat bread again, I am having some of both with breakfast. I'm also trying to keep my calories high en... Read more
Saturday Weigh-In
Monday, April 20, 2009      0 comments

This is the part of starting exercising that is kind of frustrating. I weighed and measured myself on Saturday only to find I haven't lost an ounce. I weigh exactly what I did last Saturday morning. So while I'm glad I wasn't weighing myself eve... Read more
STARVING and Smoothies
Friday, April 17, 2009      3 comments

One thing about swimming is, it really gets my metabolism revving and I need FOOD. After my 80 lengths this morning, I came home and made a berry protein smoothie (recipe below), which I drank while getting ready. Then I walked to work and ... Read more
Weekly Weigh-ins and Confession
Thursday, April 16, 2009      1 comments

As a step toward staying sane, I've decided not to step on the scale every single day, which is what I usually do. I started weighing and measuring myself a couple of weeks ago and have determined that I'm only going to weigh in weekly - on Satu... Read more

Exercise Groove

I am buzzing with energy this morning. I hope I can keep it up for the rest of the day. This morning I swam 80 lengths, and then walked the 2 miles to work. I've walked to and from work the last few days, but my shins are starting to hurt. ... Read more
First Splurge Day: Easter
Tuesday, April 14, 2009      0 comments

The last day of South Beach Phase 1 was on Saturday. I had already decided that since it was Easter on Sunday, not only would it be my first day off of Phase 1, but it would also be my monthly splurge day. We went to the house of some friends on... Read more
Calorie Deficit
Wednesday, April 08, 2009      0 comments

I'm going to try to keep track of my calorie deficits to see what's going on with my weight loss. I'm holding steady at having lost 2 whole pounds since starting South Beach. The last couple of times I did Phase 1, I lost about 6 pounds in the... Read more

My body is acting weird lately. I don't know if it's the working out, the South Beach, the meals and snacks spread out over my day? I will be absolutely STARVING, but then it takes just a little food to make me full. Then a couple hours later I'... Read more
Mmmm...Deviled Eggs...
Monday, April 06, 2009      1 comments

I think I have found my South Beach Achilles heel - deviled eggs. I made some with light mayo, dijon mustard, salt, pepper and a touch of curry powder. While I was making dinner last night, I kept popping little bits of deviled goodness into my ... Read more
Day 8
Sunday, April 05, 2009      1 comments

Swim-A-Thon: 55 laps. I'm very happy with that, but I know I pushed myself beyond my current fitness level. Since 2 people donated money per lap it pushed me to keep going as hard and fast as I could until that hour was up. And as if to pro... Read more
