There is no can't!
It has occurred tome that there is no such thing as can't! What I mean whn I say can't is, I don't want to or I won't. For months I kept saying "I can't get motivated to exercise right", "I can't stop eating at night"' what I really should have ... Read more
I am sooo back...
physically, and most importantly, mentally! I realized when talking today to someone about my diet, that I'm as focused on eating clean and within my calorie range now as when I started back in 2006. I made a few tweaks to my diet today and yest... Read more
Feeling a little confused
Only lost 0.2 lbs today, very confused as to why it's so slow/hard. I'm going to try and cross train a little bit more this week. Tomorrow instead of my usual spin class, I'm planning to so the treadmill and elliptical, then spin Wednesday and F... Read more
Love my Sunday lifting
Sunday mornings are my favorite gym days--my middle daughter Caitlyn goes to the gym with me, as my guest (she belongs to another gym) and we work out together. Today I had a new program that I'm starting that goes for the next 4 weeks, it incor... Read more
Keeping the flame burning...

This morning when I came downstairs dressed for the gym, I was greeted by my DH with the words: " you look good, really getting toned up." that made my day! Not that my DH doesn't often give me compliments, but that he could see the changes to m... Read more
Motivated and excited again
Every day I go to the gym I come home and feel excited about where I'm going again. I thought I had lost my motivation and kept thinking I wouldn't be able to get it back. I have since realized motivation isn't some elusive intangible that we mu... Read more
no longer a fraud
It occurred to me on the ride home from the gym, that what I have felt over the last 3-5 months is that I was a fraud...I talked the game of a person who had made the lifestyle changes that led to a lifetime of health and fitness=happiness...but... Read more
Why are Mondays so hard??
Monday morning is my worst morning! I hate getting out of bed when the alarm goes off, and briefly think, "I need a day off". In actuality I could have had an off day, since I went seven days last week, but I knew that extra sleep would'nt make ... Read more
Feeling invincible! The secret to true happiness!
As I was riding home from the gym I realized that I have found "it"- the true feeling of happiness! That feeling is all dependent upon exercising every day-yep that's right, I said it, all those experts really do know what they're talking about!... Read more
A Perfect Week!
This morning up bright and early--fighting my way across my ice-coated back step--off to the gym for some cardio...fifteen minutes of an interval workout on the treadmill and then off to a grueling hour long spin class....felt totally amazing af... Read more
Great workout today!
I was really ecstatic after my workout today. First I didn't even hesitate when the alarm went off--it's important to get to the gym early on Friday's if you want to take spin class-it fills up fast, and I also wanted to do my strength training ... Read more
On a roll :)
Busy and interesting day today. Started at the gym for my leg day lift and spin class...both went very well; showered at the gym-off to the hair salon, where on a whim I changed my hair color and style...kind of like it....then off to visit my m... Read more
Thankful for my life!
What a nice day today! It started with a great spin class (actually the class was so-so, I used my own music and did my own workout including 10 extra minutes) from which I left soaking wet with sweat! Home for a quick shower, and then spent the... Read more
This journey requires eating properly and exercising to drop pounds and get healthy. But I keep coming back to the most important tool, our brains. You can be your own biggest enemy because if we don't believe in ourselves, we'll never reach our... Read more
