Friday, April 18, 2014      2 comments

I have met many people at the gym over my past 7 years as a member. It's nice to have a chat with other women and discuss what works, or doesn't work for us. I had a very disturbing conversation with a woman who spends hours in the gym everyday,... Read more

Thinking out loud

Thursday, April 17, 2014      2 comments

I'm reflecting on the past 37 years of my marriage, as we begin year 38, and realize that life has so many twists and turns. I may not be exactly where I thought I would be at this point in my life, but I'm happy, none the less, and would do it ... Read more

Keeping it fresh

I love my time in the gym pumping iron...I am often finding reasons to skip cardio so this week even though spin class is something I've been doing it for 8 years now, I have found that I can motivate myself, and so my own thing when the class i... Read more

I usually take the weekend off, but since I made a resolution to up the cardio, I planned to take spin class this morning. When I got up at 7:00 it was raining, so I rolled back over to go back to sleep until 8:00. Well, I slept through 8:00 but... Read more

Cardio has been an issue for the past few my weight lifting, but cardio since field hockey has ended, is the thing I like least...additionally, on Mon/Tues/Wed my grandsons are here and the 9:00 spin class time is inconvenient....b... Read more

As I was leaving the gym yesterday (where I proudly went after shoveling my car out from Snowstorm Hercules) I realized that my Get Healthy Anniversary had passed on 1/1/14....8, eight, EIGHT years ago I weighed 300 lbs!!!!! There have been some... Read more

Softball season

Week one is complete. Things went well, though I only had 3 games this week. Kept up with all my workouts, except Saturday (10:00 game-need to arrive 30 min before-and 40 minute drive). I had planned to go after the game, but it was freezing (it... Read more

It was so great to be back on the softball field yesterday...and even better that I had no physical pain when I woke up this morning. Typically,mthe day after a game would be very painful for me, with knee and even some pain in my Achilles tendo... Read more

But still on track! I caught a nasty upper respiratory virus from my babies...feeling pretty crummy since Friday. Happy to say I didn't let this interrupt my progress or derail me! I did all my strength training sessions, as scheduled, cardio wa... Read more

Crappy mental state of mind

Thursday, March 07, 2013      4 comments

Today was a trying day, and I found myself having a pity party....I don't often do that, but I have my problems, just like everyone else. While in the midst of this self-induced crisis, I found out how destructive this type of behavior could be.... Read more

Still going strong now for 18 weeks! I'm getting close to my next SP trophy so I've been on here a lot recently. Some of the info is so good I wish more people would take the time to read it and put it into practice. I recently saw a post by a S... Read more

Typically, Sunday is an off day for exercise. But SP had a #streakintospring challenge of doing at least 10 minutes of exercise everyday in March which I accepted, so I decided to do just that, 10 minutes....which turned into two miles and 45 mi... Read more

"Toning" workouts = lifting lighter weights for high reps are best for women looking for muscle definition. Truth: forget about it! You need to lift heavier to see results! Studies prove that lifting lighter weights ( less than 70% of maxim... Read more

But I'm closer today than yesterday! This week has been awesome! I'm finally feeling like I'm making progress, and seeing results. I know I am not where I want to be, but each day I'm getting one step closer to that person. I'm in the second wee... Read more
