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

Face Facts and Move On - LiveFit Week 4, Day 22

Monday, April 16, 2012      7 comments

I know I was rather vague yesterday, but I was seriously not in the mood to talk. My plan to eat less during the week and then more on the weekends, a sort of "spike day" or whatever...which worked amazingly well the week before, well, that pla... Read more

My Own Special Form of Insanity - Day 18

Thursday, April 12, 2012      12 comments

I am beat. Exhausted. Tired. Like lay my head on the desk at work and hope no one hears me snore tired. What the hell have I done?? Last night's workout was Chest & Triceps. By the time 5pm rolled around, I was already getting supe... Read more

You're Doing It Wrong! - LiveFit Week 3, Day 17

Wednesday, April 11, 2012      8 comments

No workout to report yet. Hubs kept me up a little late last night, so I wasn't able to drag myself out of bed when I finally rolled over at 4:30am. No matter, I'll get it done tonight after work. Thankfully I usually tend to miss the rush si... Read more

Being Challenged Feels Great, Actually - LiveFit Day 16

Tuesday, April 10, 2012      8 comments

Yesterday flew by and when 6pm rolled around I was more than ready to get my lift on! It's funny how excited I get when it's time for me to earn some sweat! It doesn't hurt that Hubs got a killer job offer yesterday - though he just told me it... Read more
