Fitness Can Be Made Anywhere

Monday, May 14, 2012      9 comments

More and more as I struggle to adapt my 2-job lifestyle to this way of living (note the order there), I'm faced with difficult challenges when it comes to getting to the gym. Now I love my lifting programs and am currently trying to use them to... Read more

Are You Working Hard Enough?

Friday, May 11, 2012      16 comments

So it's no secret that I've parted ways/broken up with my scale. He hasn't shown me any love in months and, well, sometimes it's best to let someone (*thing*) go if he isn't providing what you need and is only causing pain and toxicity and stre... Read more

*jumps up on soapbox* *grips mic tightly and pulls it close* Ladies and gentlemen, I would like to take this moment to announce something to you all. I have decided, in my personal opinion, I think it's important...that we stop using the... Read more

Thanks to my girl LIMELIGHTSHINES for sharing this. No words are necessary...just watch and gain some much needed perspective about limitations.

Still Unsure

Wednesday, May 09, 2012      15 comments

I've been struggling with the idea of this second job for...well, since I started. On the one hand, the extra money will be great in getting my family back where it needs to be. Hubs is in between paycheck periods from the old job and new, and... Read more

As in...this is trying my patience and resilience. And as in...but I'm still trying. No, my food choices have not the best. I haven't been able to get enough water in me. I can't seem to find a second to breathe, let alone get a workout... Read more

Why You Can't Trust the Scale

Thursday, May 03, 2012      28 comments

So, I bit the bullet last night and asked my son to take some progress shots of me. I probably should have put on better pants as these don't quite fit me anymore, but, alas, such are the woes of "weight loss". We've all been told a millio... Read more

What Comes After

Wednesday, May 02, 2012      14 comments

Yesterday was a great day. It was also a bad day. Let me start off by thanking all of my new Sparkfriends and the goodie but oldies who stopped by to lend support and encouragement after my "Lightbulb Moment" blog yesterday. (And special ... Read more

My girl Karvs said it best yesterday when she said, "I'm glad that May means that you won't be fixated on getting to the 200s for good..." She's right you know? I have been fixated on this one goal since about 2005. I busted my butt to get ou... Read more

April Recap/May Goals - And Time for Serious Reflection

Monday, April 30, 2012      9 comments

So, here we go again. Time to make a few changes. I hate to say it but after just 2 days of working my new job it has become apparent to me that LiveFit won't exactly fit into my lifestyle right now. Friday wasn't so bad. I spent about 7... Read more

Today is day 30 of the LiveFit program. Which means...I have been on task and following a plan for a whole month! Five more days and April could be a shiny calendar full of stickers right where they should be. Sounds great, right? Easy! ... Read more

End of Phase I - Initiating Phase II Sequence

Monday, April 23, 2012      11 comments

Okay, so phase I is over. Somehow I managed to make it through and not miss a single workout. There were a few things I couldn't do (roman chair knee/hip raises, for one), but for the most part, I stuck through and I've seen some definite impr... Read more

Fighting...and NOT Eating More Tuna!

Thursday, April 19, 2012      10 comments

A little nod at my clever friend BOB240 in the title there. Sorry, Bob. No tuna in the house right now...but I'll try to eat some next week, mmmkay?! *smiles innocently...sorta* This is going to be a quick one. ....I think. I di... Read more

How to Fall Gracefully in a Gym Full of Grunting Men

Wednesday, April 18, 2012      17 comments

...that was the question on my mind during my stretches today. I tend to spend a good 10-15 minutes stretching after every workout. And, yes, I include it as part of my workout because I want to see it as progress and not think of it as someth... Read more

Three Quarters Done with Phase I

Tuesday, April 17, 2012      9 comments

I've found it helpful lately to think in these terms. Percentages done and chipping away at the totals. For example, I'm in Week 4 of 4 weeks of Phase I, which means I'm more than 3/4 of the way done with the first 1/3 of the program. Not sur... Read more
