I'm not weak... and neither are you!
A lot of times we berate ourselves for not being strong enough to do certain things. Women are the worst, too; we can't do many "boy" pushups, or a pullup... we call oursel... Read more
Body Fat Percentage? I'd rather run from Zombies.
One of the trainers today offered a body fat percentage check while I was at the gym today. I accepted.
I'm still in the obese range (and stubbornly hovering at .1% to overweight instead of obese n my BMI to boot) but I'm willi... Read more
Cherry Blossom Time! Sweaty bands and overdoing it.
So I just got my Sweaty Band in the mail. I found out about these things through a Sparkpeople promotion, and while I didn't win a free one, I liked the idea, so I decided to se... Read more
Nothing like a hard workout to start the day RIGHT!
This morning I actually made it to boot camp; I tend to not go on Tuesdays, because the first part of my week is usually crazy busy. I needed it this time, so I made the effort, and man, am I glad I did.
First was boot camp... it was TOUG... Read more
Going to bed early tonight
Both for my husband's sanity (literally) and my own need for rest, we're going to bed at 11 tonight. We've both gotten in the terrible habit of staying up late, and it's bad for his brain, and my energy levels.
So we're going to try and do... Read more
An unbelievable day
Today has just been awesome from start to finish. My husband got up with the girls and let me sleep in a little bit. When I got up, we all got dressed, and went to church for the first time in months.
He actually paid attention and partic... Read more
A day of not computing
Short entry today; it was my youngest child's 4th birthday, so we spent most of the day with her. I skipped the gym so we could go have fun! We bought her a new handheld video game thingy (mobiGo) with a couple of games, took her to a pizza bu... Read more
I've been feeling a little down today, because while I'm making tons of great progress, my "I'm not pregnant, just fat" belly still persists. It's frustrating because I'm doing everything right; I know that I can't spot-reduce trouble zones, an... Read more
FINALLY. Got to play Zombies, Run!
I completed Mission 1! Finally. After the hellish week, I got out and did it! I didn't run the whole time, of course... but I did run a good portion of it. 1.5 miles, total, 30 minutes. Going to need to come up with a more appropriate playlis... Read more
My husband is on board!
Today, I think my husband decided he's ready to start working out with me. He probably won't join me at the gym, not yet (although I've told him I'll make room in the budget for it when he want to) but he wants to start exercising with me.

My husband is home. I haven't been this happy in a while. He's doing great on his new meds, there's some transition trouble since he went from a very rigid, almost prison-like environment back to our happy chaos. He's cooking dinner as we speak.... Read more
He's coming home
I'm pleased to report that my husband will be coming home. Exactly when, I don't know. It could be as early as today. If not then, then Thursday or Friday, most likely.
Either way, I'm thrilled.
In other, unrelated news, I discovered... Read more
So today's the scary day
I'm going to the hospital today to talk about the treatment, and I'm dreading it because I'm going to have to say some things that may cause him to stay longer, and will make him very angry with me. But I would rather him be angry at me than com... Read more
No exercise this weekend
It's going to be nearly impossible for me to get any exercise this weekend. My best chance is coming up, with my oldest child's soccer game, but I'm on my own with the youngest, and she won't let me run around the track without her.
Yester... Read more
Still super stressed.
Got in 2 hours of workout this morning, wiped out and lonely.
Very annoyed, wanting this nightmare to be over.... Read more
