An hour of cardio and 30 minutes of muscle conditioning and core work...yikes!! I am sore and tired, but feeling good too. I haven't really gone to a tough workout class since March (I got sick in the end of March and ended up having my gall bladder taken out in May. Ever since I've had trouble with my lungs, eating, etc). I've just been doing the elliptical and walking the track at my own pace. <BR> <BR> I was really afraid I wouldn... Fri, 23 Nov 2012 14:32:43 EST So far, so good. So since my little meltdown, I've actually been doing fairly well this week. I've done some exercise every day, averaging 400 calories per day. I've also been watching my eating much more carefully, and instead of being 300-400 calories over every day, I've been about 100 calories over instead. Still not great, but definitely better than I have been. <BR> <BR> I'm still trying to cut myself some slack because of all the shenanigans with my surgery. I don't want to go into super-strict mod... Tue, 24 Jul 2012 21:06:00 EST Here we go again... So I gained two pounds this week :( I am really upset by this...I haven't been watching my food as closely as I should have, so that's probably why, but I have been exercising more, so I guess I thought they would balance out. The worst part is that not only am I messing myself up, but I feel like I'm messing my team up in our summer challenge by bringing down the weigh-in! Argh. So I guess I'm going to try to really step it up this week...try to swim or go to the gym every day and really... Sat, 21 Jul 2012 10:59:47 EST A bad day... Usually I don't take my venting to the internet, but considering I've been sitting here scarfing on Doritos for the last half hour, I need to do something else with my hands! <BR> <BR> I have been having a down-in-the-dumps day. A little is because of some things in my life that seem to be falling apart, but also today I found out that one of my former professors/colleagues passed away yesterday. I was not particularly close to him, but it still feels horrible. I can't imagine what his wi... Sat, 16 Jun 2012 20:15:10 EST I'm worth it! I've been thinking a lot this week about middle school and high school. I regained about 10 pounds over the last few months--so much so that none of the "skinny" pants I bought myself over the summer fit me anymore. I had to go out to Penney's and get myself some new dress slacks in the next size up. At first this didn't really bother me, because I know a good tailor and figured I could just get them taken in when I lose the weight again (and continue losing after that until I reach my goa...
