Thank The Seven for motivation!
Got some great, yet terrifying, news last night - the theatre company that I do shows with has gotten the rights to a particular show and I get the lead! When I first read the script, I just fell in love with the character. This is my dream ro... Read more
Last week was pretty rough - I either didn't have the time and/or energy to hit the gym, so... blah. Not sure that I'll be able to even really hit the gym this week, either, because pretty much the only time I *can* go is on my lunch break, but... Read more
Hitting the metabolism brick wall
Ever since I turned 38, it's like my metabolism has hit a brick wall. Stopped cold. Smacked me around a bit for slacking off, and said "Biiiiitch, you thought you had a hard time losing weight *before*? Just you wait and see! LOLOLOL." Metab... Read more
So, I've lost just shy of 6 pounds during this most recent South Beach Phase 1. If I remember correctly, I lost around 13 pounds last time I did Phase 1. Not sure why I didn't lose as much as last time, maybe because I was still kinda South Be... Read more
Getting back in the swing of things
My life has been pretty crazy the last few months and my focus on my healthy eating lifestyle has certainly suffered. As a result, I've backtracked a little on my weight - I'm up about 6 lbs from my most recent lowest weight. BUT I'm getting b... Read more
South Beach, Day 4
This South Beach thing is going surprisingly well. I've tried Atkins a couple of times but always gave up after just a couple of days. I know I'm not too far in yet (finishing up day 4), but so far, so good. Haven't actually had cravings *too... Read more
So, I started the South Beach Diet yesterday. I did fine, except there was a little bit of sugar hidden in a few foods I ate and I didn't realize it until I read the labels after I was done eating them. My dill pickle slices? Contain sugar. ... Read more
AAAAAAAAND we're back!
I've been absent from SP and the gym for awhile. Part of that can be blamed on breaking my toe (note to self: don't drop a full bottle of wine on your toes!), part of that can be blamed on exhaustion (rehearsals and shows that don't end until ... Read more
Holy freaking crap, I actually did it!!!! I completed the 20 minute run of C25K W5D3! And without having to repeat W5D2 or further build up to it - just straight jumped from W5D2 on Wednesday and was able to do the 20 minutes today. I'm still... Read more
Yay for progress!
I know this is a bit of a cheat, but I received a bit of a jumpstart from an unlikely source: some kind of stomach virus. Yup. Right before and over Memorial Day weekend, I was having some stomach issues which made me drop about 4.5 lbs over ... Read more
Here we go again
So, I stepped on the scale yesterday and saw a number I haven't seen in years (outside of when I was pregnant and for a couple of weeks following delivery). Seeing that number will hopefully be the kick in the ass that I've needed to get my but... Read more
Good article today on MSN: http://health.msn.com/fitness/
e=1>1=31036 This led to an interesting "daily needs calculator" where you can plug in various bits of information to fin... Read more
Back on the wagon
Here I go. Starting today, I am going to resume Sparking; meaning I am getting my rather hefty booty back in the gym and am going to start logging everything I eat again. I’m going to try to cut out soda for the most part and watch my portion ... Read more
Back at Sparkpeople... finally!
Soooo... I seriously could NOT remember my password for my Sparkpeople account and really didn't want to start it over, so I just fell off the Sparkpeople planet for awhile. Have no idea why I've finally remembered my password today, but I'll ... Read more
OK, so back around the beginning of February, I started getting back in the gym. Well, that lasted for about two weeks, and then I had several days where I had to use my lunch break for home-buying process stuff (now THAT sounds official, doesn... Read more
