It's been a while since I've written anything here, so here's a little update. My in-laws stayed with us for three months over the summer, so I didn't exercise much other than taking walks. I gained some weight during that time, too. Since th... Read more
No More Trouble Zones?

So, yeah...NMTZ is definately a weight training dvd...but I'm pretty sure that it counts as low-intensity cardio as well...judging by the sweat on my brow. My daughters, who insisted on doing the dvd with me, were pooped by the end. My old... Read more
Excited about a workout dvd?

It's been very difficult deciding which dvds I was going to reward myself with for finishing up the 30 day shred (which I haven't quite finished yet, for the record--I finished day 4 of level 3 yesterday....so 6 days to go). I kept going back a... Read more

Alhamdulillah I seem to be getting back into the swing of things. I ate whatever I wanted during my pregnancy, but I was at least walking a lot, so I had that going for me. I'm done with day 15 of the 30 day shred (day 5 of level 2). I ... Read more
Happy Scale Day

I was surprised at my weight this morning. But it was a good surprise. I've kind of been expecting a day like this, though, because of AF. I always gain about 5 lbs right before and it doesn't go away right away...but it looks like it's start... Read more
One Day at a Time???

Changing my eating habits is tough. Last night I ate a whole bunch of halal marshmallows that a friend brought over. Still, the scale keeps moving and I'm sure that I'm building muscle and burning fat, so I push on. Today is day 8 of th... Read more
Nutrition, the hardest part of all.

I like exercising. A lot. A little anecdote. A friend of my husband's has a 14 year old son. I was doing my pull-ups for the day (one by one, because I'm not as strong as I used to be) and then finished up with 20 push-ups. This kid had his... Read more

I know I wrote today already, but I finished my 25 pull-ups today...one at a time...and I am REALLY feeling it. I think that I'll continue them one at a time, but I'm also going to add 10-15 "negatives" to add strength a little faster, inshaAll... Read more
Exercising like a man...

I must admit that crunches and "modified" push-ups don't do much for me...so I've started something else. A 45 day program in addition to 50 push-ups, 50 sit-ups and 25 pull-ups 10 out of 14 days. It's actually a program that's supposed to hel... Read more
I ate a TON of ice cream today...

Ugh. Enough said on that matter. I did get in my 5k, though, and about 25 minutes of strength training/pilates, alhamdulillah. I'll have to watch what I eat for the next two or three days to even things out, inshaAllah. ... Read more
I fit comfortably into a size 8!

I am pretty happy, alhamdulillah! Despite not losing a lot of weight as far as the scale goes lately, I can finally fit comfortably into a size 8! Size 6 is still a little tight, but I can button up my size 6 pants. My size 6 dresses ha... Read more
