Of Mothers and Daughters..
As opposed to Mice and Men..
I am one of each (mother and daughter, not a mouse or a man) so I've been on both sides of the weight loss conversation.
It wasn't long after Kristan (my daughter) was born that my mom discovered Susan Pow... Read more
In just a little bit, I'll be meeting up with the Hubster to walk down to this year's BrewFest. I've never been, but he has, and as a home brewer and beer adorer, this is right up his alley. The Fest is about a mile and a half away from where I ... Read more
What The..??!?!?!!! I've shrunk?!!?
Ok, ordinarily, on a blog about getting fit and eating healthy and losing weight, shrinking would be a good thing. This, I know.
Me - Honey, do me a favor please?
Bill - Do what?
Me - I want to know how tall I am.
Bill -... Read more
Talk about bouncing back. Last weekend, +2 days, are in the record book and I'm not looking back, or just a glance, maybe, to see how far I've come since then.
There's no real numeric measurement that can define how much better I feel, how ... Read more
I -so- had a Monday...
Yesterday was simply 'one of those days' but I'm going to backtrack a bit first.
Saturday, we had our 3rd annual Big Bailey Blowout - our post-4th of July party with family and friends. We celebrated three birthdays; our daughter Kristan's... Read more
I don't know why I always think I don't have anything to say - and therefore don't blog. It seems like my blogs end up being longer than expected. Maybe I should tack on 'blog more' as a goal for this month. We'll see.
So I'm in Stage 2, H... Read more
Here it is July already. Where's the time gone?
Time to put down in writing and commit to some goals for this month. I counted June as my breaking-in period, and now that I'm broked it's time for another step toward re/building myself to t... Read more
Received my Spark Fitness Starter Kit yesterday. The big ball is awesome - it didn't burst when I sat on it, and I was worried. I'm off to the Fitness room (aka the scary room two sets of grown kids used to live in, now revamped and repurposed t... Read more
Bootcamp Day 4
It's only day 4.. uh.. huh. Allow me to rephrase that ~ahem..~
I've been rockin' Bootcamp and I'm on day 4!
I was very nervous signing up for Bootcamp, figuring even though I've made progress, I wasn't in any shape to keep up. You kno... Read more
So Thursday was an extra day off, making for a four-day weekend for me. Woohoo. (I work a 9/80 schedule, alternating 5 day weeks with 4 day weeks, which means every-other Friday off). It was great until Thursday evening. Trainwreck is the term t... Read more
Exercising with an extra 13 pounds this morning..
Since I'm off today, I decided to knock out my strength training for the day this morning. I do these exercises in our office, where our computers are, and where our lhasa apsos' crate is. Millie is our big girl at 22 lbs., and Maggie is our lit... Read more
Do what's good for me..
I just spent 30 minutes enforcing my love/hate relationship with my treadmill. We argued about the incline - she thought it should be much steeper, and I tried to keep up but had to ease up on it. I'll get there eventually. I'll keep up with her... Read more
~tap tap tap..~ Is this thing on?
Hi. My name is Candy, and I'm about to contradict my SparkPage statement - I don't normally share a lot about myself, as far as blogs or public postings or suchlike things. But I'll take a stab at it now.
One winter night last year, after ... Read more
