Oh, I am the queen of excuses. I can come up with almost any excuse not to workout. The main reason is just because I'm lazy or I get down in the dumps & the last thing I want to do is workout... when in all reality working out would get me ou... Read more
I love it!! What can I say... I drank that Kool-Aid. My husband has been doing it for a few years and I never understood how anyone could workout so hard to the point where they were going to lose their lunch. I started Crossfit back in June.... Read more
Wow! I haven't posted a blog since Sept. 2009. Where have I been?? Oh yea, preggo & far too busy/not so motivated with a 9 month old. But, it dawned on me that her first birthday is about 3 months away & I am nowhere near my pre-baby weight.... Read more
The Roller Coaster ride called Weight Loss...
Ok, I know I just posted a blog about how happy I was to fit into a size 6... and don't get me wrong, I still am... but, boy, the mood swings that losing weight (or attempting to) brings with it. So, here's my story:
Not 24 hours after I p... Read more
From a 16 to a 6
Wowzers... Sometimes it takes a lot of hard work to start noticing some results. Other times, it comes as easy as going shopping! A coworker of mine told me that one of the local stores was having great sales, so I stopped down after work to c... Read more
Week 1... Goal Met!
So, I've come to the conclusion that although it's good to have a weight goal to obtain, it is equally as important to have a workout goal to meet. So, for this week I have set my goal to do cardio 5 days a week and strength training 3 days & I... Read more
The benefits of breaking up your cardio...
Wow... how quickly workout minutes add up when you break it up throughout the day. I did 73 minutes of cardio today!!! I spent 30 minutes during my lunch break walking around town at a fast pace. It was great therapy, too, because boy was I h... Read more
Boot Camp Day 3
I wanted to get my 30 minutes of cardio in, so like yesterday, I worked out during my lunch break at work (I failed to mention that I did that in my last blog)... I walked 2 miles in 35 minutes on the treadmill and was exhausted by the end of it... Read more
Boot Camp Day 2
Whew... what a challenge! I incorporated today's video into my circuits... This made it even more challenging and made my workout very long! I did it twice through. I can't say I was a fan of the single leg squats, but I could feel the result... Read more
Boot Camp Day 1
Although I am on track with the bootcamp workouts, I am a little behind on updating my blog to reflect everything. Let me just start out by saying that I LOVED the Day 1 kickboxing video. I would love to see a longer version of it! Although c... Read more
Just a smidge away!
It's amazing to think of the journey I've been on for the past 2 years. I have struggled with my weight my entire life, but I learned in college that if I focus on it and really set my heart to being healthy, I can do it. When I met my husband... Read more
Meeting my goal for the day
Well, the one day challenge for today was to blog and here I am... It appears that I haven't blogged since February 2007... WOW so much has changed... I got into that wedding dress... I hadn't lost the amount of weight I had wanted to, but I wil... Read more
My Wedding Dress
So, every so often (when I feel like I'm having a good day), I will put my wedding dress on and see how much bigger it has gotten on me... I'm really hoping to get the reaction from the seamstress (when it comes time to have it alterred) that I ... Read more
