Ok, first off I just want to say My husband is amazing. For someone who never had will power and was always in the "mass building" phase, he has stuck to his P90X routine for79 days and has lost 15lbs, but has gained a LOT of muscle! I'm so proud! I have never seen him do anything like this before. He used to just lift weights and never change his diet, but he loves the P90X. All the while I have lazed around after I injured my shins walking in May to the point I could hardly walk. It w... Tue, 24 Aug 2010 11:02:39 EST Husband's finally on board! Whoohoo! My husband has been just as much of a yo-yo dieter as I have been through the years. But he has taken it to a whole other level. Since my experience with Redux (Phen-Phen) back in the early 90's, I've known that there is no magic pill out there that will make me skinny...just portion control & hard work - which I have yet to master. However, I can't tell you how many pieces of work out equipment and $$$ worth of supplements my husband has bought over the years, not to mention fitness magaz... Tue, 8 Jun 2010 21:52:08 EST Stress Eating Well, I figured out what triggers my bad eating habits...stress! I was doing great all week, walking and eating right until Friday morning came along. My close friend has a cake business, but also has a day job too. I assist her with the cakes as a creative outlet on the weekends, and we are booked through the summer...God help me! Last week we just decided to stop taking any more cakes since we both have careers and they are taking up a good portion of our lives. They are normally 3D, an... Sun, 23 May 2010 22:58:30 EST Started off hard but got easier Well, today is #3 for me with the diet and walking 3 miles every day. Yesterday I threw in a 30 minute circuit training session after a 2 mile walk, and then walked another mile in the evening. My husband said I was pushing it and I was going to wear myself out, but I did it anyways. <BR> <BR> Then this morning it hit me. 7AM came way too soon and I was exhausted. I was so relieved that it was my husband’s turn to take the kids to school, and I went back to sleep. I didn’t wake up until... Tue, 18 May 2010 22:33:27 EST Chasing Fireflies This is my first blog entry and the beginning of my lifestyle change. It's been a fabulous day, and I am very glad that I took a step in the right direction today. I went to the farmer's market with my daughter and showed her how to pick ripe fruit & veggies. It was a great opportunity to talk about health. Then we went to the store to buy some lean meat & some veggies they didn't have at the market. <BR> <BR> While we were in the store we walked buy an obese woman on one of those moto...
