I probably should have taken the time to look around and shop for gyms, but I really liked this place. They have the full cardio section with treadmills, ellipticals and bikes, and the weight section. They also have a four lane pool and sauna, which I'm excited to use. They also have a lot of classes offered which is free to the membership, and they have three courts where you can play handball or tennis. What was the best thing was the ... Thu, 14 Mar 2013 21:09:32 EST A Wii game I can work with http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5263243 I was out yesterday with the family, and we ventured into Game Stop. My husband and daughter are really into the Skylander game, and get a new figurine as a reward when my daughter does something really well. I was walking along the walls looking around and I saw The Biggest Loser game for the Wii. I got really excited, because I knew we had a Wii at home (that I had never used before). I bought the game with a spring in my step and decided that this morning would be the morning to try it. I ... Mon, 25 Feb 2013 10:48:57 EST I just couldn't wait to weigh in... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5257313 That's right, I just couldn't wait until March 1st to weigh in. After yesterday with what happened to me with a classmate (she had approached me and asked if we wanted to study together because 'us fat chicks gotta stick together') I realized that yes, I may be overweight, but at least I'm doing something about it. I cut out the soda and I drink more water, and I'm trying to eat right, and I'm researching and working out. <BR> <BR> So, to prove to myself that I am actually doing something, ... Wed, 20 Feb 2013 10:15:37 EST Discoveries of Salad http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5254926 To start off with, I should let it be known- I hate vegetables. If I liked them, then maybe losing weight wouldn't be such a problem with me! I don't like salad, cucumbers, green beans, peas, broccoli, cauliflower... basically anything. It's sad, really, I just never liked them. I'm a texture eater as well as taste, and I feel that salad just tastes like nothing, which makes me want to gag. <BR> <BR> I went to the grocery store last night after I ate dinner (because you're supposed to go sh... Mon, 18 Feb 2013 13:34:02 EST Lots on my mind... including questions http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5249053 I slipped up last night <em>39</em> I didn't have dinner planned out like I should have, so when I picked my husband up from work it was like a flashback: "What do you want for dinner?.... I dunno, what do you want for dinner?" We got home and all I wanted was hot wings from a local diner. And that's what I got. My husband kept saying "This can be our cheat meal." It didn't occur to me until after I ate all 15 of those wings (with blue cheese dressing mmmmm) that it wasn't right to have a... Wed, 13 Feb 2013 12:10:15 EST Epiphany time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5243996 Well, I know I've been a part of this website for a long time, but I've been such a slacker, it's not even funny. <BR> Yesterday I went to school (I'm a full time college student) and I felt HUGE. I even said to a girl in my class "I know I'm a big girl, but you ever have one of those days where you just feel larger than normal?" Yeah yesterday was one of those days. <BR> I woke up this morning and went downstairs, my husband went out to McDonalds to get breakfast because we were (and I quo... Sat, 9 Feb 2013 13:27:25 EST
