Fortunately, in the 4 weeks since I've had Berlin I've lost 40 pounds. I am now 20 pounds lighter than my last weigh-in on SP back in March. That has motivated me to continue losing to become a healthy mom for myself & to ensure the baby leads a... Read more

If life would just go as I plan, everything would be so easy! My plans last night took much longer than expected but I did a couple things I think were good. I was starving but didn't go thru and get fast food. I stopped at the grocery store and... Read more
Struggling but not giving up

Man, why is it so hard for me to stay on track??? Most people adjust when their plans fall thru, not me. I get so lost and that makes me sad. I had to put Capoeira on hold for a month due to finances and I can't seem to get motivated to lift we... Read more

Weighing in on casual fridays means jeans and tenny shoes. I learned today that also means an extra 4 pounds on the scale - wow! From here on out I will be sure to take those heavy bastards off when I weigh. So, realistically I lost 1 pound this... Read more

Boy, staying on track can be soooo tough. It's always tough getting started. Trying to shake off those old lazy habits is not easy task. Well, I'll speak for myself, it's no easy task for ME. Work has been nuts, home has been nuts and I haven't ... Read more

I kept my promise this weekend and shopped, prepped and packaged my food for the week. My husband said, "it sure does feel good getting back on track!" and we hadn't even started the week yet. I forget how much my neglect effects the both of us,... Read more

My sprained knee is finally better. Maybe not 100% but pretty darn close. Laurence is coming with me to Capoeira tonight to check it out. Hopefully he likes it and is as passionate about it as I so it's something we can do together. If not, it's... Read more

2nd class, 1st injury. I was practicing round house kicks with the instructor (oh HELL yes!) and seemed to have twisted my knee wrong. I knew I had hurt my left knee last night and ate a couple Ibuprofen before going to bed. Well, the little bug... Read more

Capoeira RULES! It was challenging AND fun! What really made this class special was the upbeat, positive energy in the room. You do kicks and spins and cartwheels and play percussion instruments and don't even notice you are getting ... Read more
