I started out here last month with all the great intentions and motivations and everything else that comes with the idea of starting something new and fresh and positive. It lasted about 4 days. This past weekend I was at a family swim with a ... Read more

Well, day 1 was a day of mixed success and not so much success. I achieved my goal of tracking every bite. That was a wake up call! Wow - no wonder I'm gaining weight. I also started my bonus goal of getting daily excercise in - I walked ... Read more

Well now I know where 2 years off plan gets me. It gets me an extra 20 pounds. I now weigh more than I ever did pregnant. Wow! I have no excuses. I have eaten and lazed about for every extra inch. Being this heavy now, I started to real... Read more

After doing so well for May and the first part of June, I had a serious derailment starting last week. Last Sunday we came home to a flood in the house. While we were dealing with the insurance company and our landlord, I received some bad new... Read more

Wednesday, June 01, 2011      0 comments

Yesterday I did the dumbbell workout with 10 pound dumbbells, purely because I couldn't find my 5's and my husband's set is easy to find. I was worried that it would be too much weight for my, but guess what, it wasn't. That has got to be the M... Read more

That's it, that's all there is folks - 28 days of Bootcamp completed. I'm feeling good. I think back to the first week where I was whimpering from the Ab workout (Thursday) and then sore from the butt workout (Friday) and look to this week whe... Read more
Frustrated with the whole darn thing

So I am feeling better about working out, I'm just so frustrated with the weigh in part. My numbers go down, then they go up again. I'm tracking, I'm staying within my calories, I'm drinking all my water, I'm working out every day and right no... Read more

Tuesday, May 24, 2011      2 comments

Today marks the middle of the last week of Spring BootCamp. I can't believe it's here already. And that I've stuck with it. Today I did my double video with ease, although doing the full cardio was a push. My husband encouraged me through it... Read more

I read this article today and found it interesting, especially in light of my decision to do away with diet pop and foods labelled 'low fat' and 'diet' in general. Have a look:

Full Fat vs. Non-Fat
Saturday, May 21, 2011      1 comments

I've been doing a lot of thinking about the kinds of fats I have in my diet these days. Long ago I gave up eating fat free yogurt purely because I found it too thin and knowing all the extra chemicals that they put in there to get the taste jus... Read more
Spring Bootcamp Week 3 - the added challenge
Thursday, May 19, 2011      2 comments

Working out would be so much easier if I didn't have kids. Well, really it's just my toddler daughter who gets in the way. My 6 year old is at school, and my 4 year old loves to do the Wii fit with me. It's my daughter who sits on the balance... Read more

I never thought it would happen to me. In fact, I really didn't believe that it happened to other people. But it does. I'm actually looking forward to exercising and think I'm becoming addicted to it. Last night when I was bored, I actually ... Read more

I haven't felt this way about fitness in a long, long time. I am absolutely loving this. I look forward to working out in the morning. It isn't a chore. For years the mere thought of getting my butt off the couch to do a workout was met with... Read more

Monday, May 16, 2011      1 comments

Today was make up day. On Saturday I did an hour of cardio that I wasn't scheduled for and missed my boot camp videos (2 because one was the 2nd time for the bonus video). Yesterday I missed the video as well (plus had a treat day with food a... Read more
