I had awesome expectations of working out in the hotel gym and hitting the grocery store for healthy meals and snacks but of course that didn’t happen. <BR> <BR> Thankfully the hotel served an awesome breakfast buffet so I was easily able to start the day out with good choices but then the chaos of traveling, meetings, and dinners took over. <BR> <BR> Let me tell you, it’s no fun to consider the calories in everything and guestimat... Thu, 31 Jan 2013 18:51:32 EST Women Stink.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3310604 That's the only conclusion I can draw after visiting the store earlier today in search of a new body wash to replace my old one. <BR> <BR> That might sound a bit odd but I was struck by how many overly perfumed stuff was on the shelves. Anyone who's had to buy antiperspirant in the last couple years will tell you - there are just to many scents to choose from. With all the different scents its a wonder we don't smell like a week old bouquet. Don't get me wrong - I like to smell good, but whe... Mon, 7 Jun 2010 17:04:05 EST The sizing game http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=703316 So today I went out and tried on some bathing suits and jeans. I picked up some medium bathing suits and boy some of those things are hard to put on- maybe they were to small? The larges were to baggy though. Then afterwards I stopped by the pant section to take a look at what my jean size is. I have been wearing 10's since i hit the 140's which is great, but they are getting too baggy. So I took a pair of 8's and 6's back to see if I looked better in the 8's yet, and how far until the 6's...... Wed, 15 Aug 2007 23:33:48 EST Staying on the wagon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=529067 So this week hasn't been very good as far as sticking with my calorie count. On Saturday I had a couple beers and Pad Thai- I was shocked when I saw the calories in Pad Thai ! <BR> <BR> Then yesterday I went out to a Mexican Food Restaurant and had fajitas. I thought that would the best bet but it looks like I was wrong. On the upside I ordered corn tortillas instead of flour which helped me out a bit, and only had two taco sized ones, with a side of water. <BR> <BR> So this brings up a que... Tue, 24 Apr 2007 10:38:12 EST Practice http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=509226 So last night I went to Dryland practice again, dreading how I would feel afterwards- and suprise, I felt good. Sure I was tired , sore, and had a bit of a headache, but I was breathing alright and I felt pretty good. YAY. <BR> I really made sure to drink water yesterday and I drank 2 cups (16oz) a couple hours before practice to make sure I was hydrated. I think it worked! <BR> So now I am a bit more enthusiastic about going to practice. Wed, 11 Apr 2007 12:01:12 EST I kill myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=498103 Well yesterday was dryland practice- the first I ever attened. I am telling you those girls can work out. We did this jog/run/sprint thing for 15 or more minutes that killed me. Thankfully I was not the only person who looked like they were about to collapse. There were other excerises there too of course but that was the main killa. Man, my head was pounding - I guess that shows how out of shape I am. <BR> Then I think I drank way to much water AFTER practice because about 4 hours after work... Wed, 4 Apr 2007 10:27:29 EST The first day of class and first day of Spark people http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=495590 wooo...my first blog too. <BR> Well today was the first day of classes which look as if they might be long and grueling. I sit on my butt for 6+ hours listening to the instructors drone on. <BR> So far today is going well- I have stuck to my calorie intake and have enough points saved up for a nice dinner. Yay!
