How to Start Again?
Friday, March 27, 2009      1 comments

This is the question I'm working on figuring out. I am 37 years old and recently found out the long term pain (like 5+ years) that I've been having in my back is, in fact, arthritis and a slighter herniated disc. I just finished my second rou... Read more
My Goals for January
Sunday, January 04, 2009      1 comments

My main goal for January is to be more consistent. Consistency in everything--fitness, nutrition, and every other area of my life. I am shooting for a 5 lb loss for the month, though, more would NOT be discouraged. ... Read more
The Morning After
Tuesday, December 30, 2008      1 comments

I had to stop exercising, except for stretching, for about a month, because the pain in my back and hip had increased so dramatically. Anything I did made it worse. After going for a few years with what a doctor told me was a pinched sciatic n... Read more

I feel like all I do is write about what I plan on doing vs what I am doing. Between a couple of illnesses this past couple of weeks, I've regained the 10 lbs that I'd lost. Funny how quickly it comes back and how long it takes to lose it. ... Read more

Well, Friday was the third day of doctors in a week and I took my oldest to get new shoes afterwards. By the time I got home I could barely walk and ended up on the couch ALL of Friday and most of the weekend, doing a few stretches here and the... Read more

I've always read that fat burns everywhere else before the belly, but never really understood it until now. I have actually had to go down a shoe size (which totally thrilled me, btw. LOL). My kids were even commenting on how skinny my ankles... Read more

I hadn't realized it's been a month since I last wrote. I've been barely staying afloat since school started. I've been taking the time to do the bare minimum online, and blogging hasn't made the list. As far as food goes--I've been ea... Read more
To Write or Not to Write...
Thursday, August 14, 2008      4 comments

Well, I suppose that's not really the question. The real question is what to write about? I have sat here for the last 15 minutes staring at the screen trying to figure out where to start. I joined The Challenge last week, and the firs... Read more
Week 3
Tuesday, July 22, 2008      3 comments

Well, I'm wondering if I'm the only one out there that isn't necessarily losing fat, but the fat seems to be shifting places? My outer thighs are nice and slim, my inner thighs, a jiggly mess. I've also noticed that after this week's exercises... Read more

Well, I haven't really had much to say. Week 1 I got a little behind and made most of the goals with only 50 more pushups to go. Just ran out of time and energy. Week 2 has been more difficult. I've stayed on top of the strength exer... Read more
