Ch..ch..ch..changes

I am happy to report that my husband, who has been out of work since December, has been offered a full-time position with a fantastic company! It does mean we'll have to move out of state, but that's fine. It's a chance to reinvent, and will b... Read more

I just said "no"

I just said, "No, thank you," to an offer for a doughnut. I actually have no desire for a doughnut. I'm so happy!... Read more

I CAN!

Suffice it to say, it's been a rough eight months or so. In August '09, I had surgery on my left foot, which was more extensive than the doctor originally thought. I finally got out of "the boot" in November. Then, on November 21, I injured m... Read more

Hello, abs. Welcome back!

Thursday, March 19, 2009      2 comments

Had a great workout last night with Jason, my new man (aka trainer). I really love this guy! He knows how to motivate me, and pushes me to do things I didn't think I could do. We targeted my butt, back & thighs this time, and finished off wit... Read more

The results are in....

According to my trainer & all his fancy equipment, I lost 1.5 lbs, and 1 % body fat in the last 6 days. I'll take it! Want more, of course, but I'll take it. At first, I was a little disappointed that I hadn't lost more. Then, while cooking d... Read more

Great weekend!

It was a beautiful weekend here in Eastern Iowa, for which I am eternally grateful. After all the rain & cold & snow & more rain & ice just for fun, I was ready for a nice weekend. We took advantage of the great weather & got to work outside. ... Read more

Love/Hate my Trainer

Thursday, March 12, 2009      1 comments

I met with my personal trainer last night. He created a "circuit training" series for me, which we did together. It all looked so simple. Squats with a 10 lb medicine ball, seated press with 10 lb weights, seated row with 30 lbs resistance, ... Read more

Oops

Wednesday, February 25, 2009      0 comments

I made a mistake this morning. After working out at the gym every day for a week, I decided to hop on the scale. My trainer told me he would not weigh me for two to three weeks, because there is always an initial "flux" when you start weight t... Read more

I LOVE working out!

My muscles hurt. Walking is a reminder of what I did last night. Okay, BREATHING kinda hurts, but I'm so happy! Today is the 6th day in a row that I have made it to the gym, or completed an at-home workout. I've tried yoga, and liked it! I'... Read more

Joining a gym

Friday, February 20, 2009      2 comments

I've decided to join a gym. This is a big step for me. I belonged to a gym about 12 years ago, and loved it. Problem was, I got NO support from my hubby. He saw it as a "waste of money" despite the fact I got down to a size 6 from a size 16 ... Read more

Big eye opener!

Stick with me here. I have been feeling blue lately about not losing weight. I've allowed my kids' busy schedules to be an excuse to not get a work-out in. I've allowed the fact that I need new workout shoes to be an excuse. I've allowed... Read more

I really Don't want those doughnuts!

Tuesday, February 17, 2009      2 comments

I just walked by the break room, and noticed the box of doughnuts one of our vendors graciously brought us. After working on losing weight for a year, I've found myself slipping A LOT lately. I knew they were there. I've been thinking about t... Read more

Refocused

Tuesday, August 12, 2008      0 comments

Last night, I got home from work & started into the routine of prepping dinner. I noticed my basement was disheveled. I asked my youngest, "What happened down here?" She replied, "I had to move the boxes so I could use the elliptical." Here ... Read more

Two freshmen...really?

Thursday, August 07, 2008      0 comments

I just registered my daughter for high school. Next week, I move my step-daughter to her college dorm room. That means I have two freshmen. How is it that they get older, but I don't?... Read more
