Today. Do-over please
So today started out great. I went to the gym, had a GREAT workout. Went to Walmart to get a new armband for my ipod, with the intention of running.
My husband texts me. He's... having a breakdown. Literally.
Fastforward 12 hours lat... Read more
No cardio today
This has been a frustrating week for cardio. I've been trying to get out to run and try out Zombie's run. It just hasn't happened. First, it stormed all day Saturday. Sunday I never got moving.
Today, thanks to my oldest forgetting to giv... Read more
The beauty of bartering
Today I had a great opportunity fall in my lap. I found that the trainer who teachers many of my classes at the gym (whom I absolutely LOVE) has her own side personal training business... and no website.
I asked her if she'd be interested ... Read more
Fuel your body
I've noticed this a LOT in the message boards. Everyone wants to lose weight faster, and they think that by eating less, they can lose weight faster.
Thing is, it doesn't work like that.
Our bodies need fuel. To lose weight, you n... Read more
Adventures in Healthy Eating: Parmesan Crusted Tilapia
So today I tried a new experiment. One of my trainers at the gym posted a fantastic Rachael Ray recipe for Parmesan Crusted Tilapia, and I had to try it, and I even attempted to make the meal healthy enough for my whole family to eat! Not only d... Read more
Depression is a Pain
This seems like a timely post, and I thought I would talk about my previous barrier to health and fitness: depression.
I've never been a depressive sort. I've always been almost disgustingly perky, positive, and pleasant. (Alliteration!) T... Read more
So much better today
I'm feeling so much better today. I ended the day badly yesterday. We ordered pizza from Pizza Hut, deep dish pepperoni, and I just HAD to have three pieces... PLUS a cheese stick!
That's over 1,000 calories in ONE meal, an... Read more
Feel less awesome today
i had a great start today, but ended on a sour note. I just *had* to go back for that third slice of pizza! Feeling a bit bloated, and I have a raging headache.
It's okay, though, I didn't go over my calories by much, and it was very good... Read more
Today I'm feeling great
Today has been a day of accomplishments. While I haven't made it to the gym (yet) I plan to. My husband got up and took my daughter to school, which was kinda nice, since I got to sleep in! I don't mind missing today's class. Tuesday's are my l... Read more
Just figured out how to enjoy something I love!
My family adores Old El Paso enchiladas. You can get a dinner kit, and they eat the heck out of them. Problem is... they're TERRIBLE. 1 serving is almost 400 calories, and that's without all the extras I like, sour cream, extra cheese, etc.

Today at the gym
Today was something of a victory. For the first time I three weeks, I made it to the gym on a Monday morning! The last few weeks have been tough, very stressful and exhausting, so I ended up sleeping in while my husband dragged my oldest to scho... Read more
Tough Mudder and Feeling Good
Today's been a good day. I've been feeling motivated, and I put on a pair of size 12 pants for the first time in YEARS.
I've been stuck at a 14 for months... I was at a 16 when I started, but I've lost enough to wear 14s. I've been in tha... Read more
So today I did something cool
I joined the 10 minute exercise challenge as a way to get myself moving even on my days off at the gym. I'm bad about sitting on my butt all weekend, though I really, really work my butt off at the gym during the week. I want to change that; i... Read more
Why I Like Sparkpeople
There's tons of new folks coming to this site every day, and I thought I might share why I like Sparkpeople, and how it's helped me.
When I first started Sparkpeople, it was just to use the calorie tracker, because I wanted to be healthy. ... Read more
Great abs are made in the kitchen... not in the gym!
I just heard this ancient nugget of wisdom, and while the attribution for the original quote ranges widely (up to and including Arnold Schwarzenneger) the point behind it is simple.
Doing 1,000 crunches won't result in washboard abs.
