Where are the excuses for not going??) and I'm DREADING it. I HATE the gym. It petrifies me. I feel like at any moment, I'll crumble I'm so scared. But when I walk out of there, I'm proud, I feel brave, and I just want to bawl. <BR> <BR> Anyone else feel that way? <BR> <BR> I mean, I'm not overweight...I have a few ...

I joined this Booty Camp Fitness, all women's trainning boot camp thingy and it is INTENSE!!!! I'm gonna ask my trainer, how much calories I myself burn, every class. I payed for 4 weeks, hoping to do 8. :) I'm excited, and uber tired after my 1st class. And my legs, feel like spaghetti mixed with cement.

I ate about 2 lbs of chocolate. I had WAYYYYYYYYYYYY too much chocolate...and I'm talking in a MAJOR way. <BR> sigh. <BR> <BR> Oh well. The important part is that I recognize that I did. I do regret it, however, first thing I did this morning, was go for a mile and a half run on the treadmill here at work. <BR> Im' going for a walk during lunch, and having a greek salad for lunch. Drinking coffee and water and eating a good dinner. <BR> <BR> I ate...

Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays (for now) <BR> So, I changed into my work clothes, and jumped on the eliptical. I did 25 minutes. <BR> I broke a sweat. <BR> I wasn't even out of breath and my thighs didnt burn as much. I could have kept going. <BR> <BR> Am I really at a point in my life, where working out, and staying healthy, REALLY is a priority? <BR> Feels that w...

Thu, 22 Nov 2007 11:59:21 EST A good day today :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=832970 I think I did really good today. <BR> <BR> I ate a yogurt for breakfast <BR> had a coffee for lunch...just after breakfast <BR> <BR> I had a chicken breast, with green peppers and lettuce on a whole wheat pita for lunch <BR> <BR> for dinner I steamed some chicken breasts (boneless and skinless) and made some sauted green peas with olive oil and garlic, wine vinegar and hot chilli peppers <BR> <BR> That's pretty good if you ask me :D I probably lost 1 lb today. <BR> <BR> With all th...

I read somewhere, that if you can make the 20day mark, you can do it forever. <BR> So, even though 20 is only tomorrow, i've decided to challenge myself AGAIN. And a day early :D <BR> <BR> Today, i REFUSED to touch the computer till I put something in my mouth. <BR> I ate a raspberry Activia yogurt. Its not much, but it's something. <BR> I'm gonna have a coffee, and then i'm gonna do my 3 min. of skipping rope. <B...

That's it. <BR> I weighed myself on Sunday, and lost 0.6 lbs. I'm SURE that if I ate at LEAST 3 times a day, i'd lose more than 1/2lb every 2 weeks. <BR> <BR> :( <BR> I feel a little failure-ish...but i'm not gonna quit. Quit what? It's not like I eat too much, my problem is I dont eat. <BR> <B... Thu, 15 Nov 2007 15:43:22 EST My Diet Personality Type http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=816699 FAST FUELER <BR> <BR> Convenience is everything - and it's a problem. You tend to be on the go a lot and have a no-nonsense but inconsistent approach to health and fitness. The rational side knows about good nutrition and how it helps you get more done. But eating right all the time is a real hassle, especially when you just want to know what tastes good! Moreover, you prefer to eat when hungry but your busy schedule makes it difficult. Relatively speaking, it is also likely you have less we... Tue, 6 Nov 2007 13:53:06 EST Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=810065 Well, today is day 1. <BR> I'm currently at 146lbs. <BR> <BR> I'm gonna try to take my measurements and post them as soon as I have them. <BR> <BR> So far (it's 12:59pm), i've had: <BR> a coffee - 1% milk only <BR> a bowl of Optimum Power cereal - no honey this time :) <BR> <BR> I'm not sure what i'll eat for lunch, or what kind of excersise i'll do, so when i get it all, and if i have time, i'll update this page later. <BR> <BR> Wish me luck! :) Thu, 1 Nov 2007 13:02:07 EST
