Starving today

Thursday, May 10, 2012      5 comments

Man, my hunger is off the CHAIN today. I've been snacking all day. Fortunately, I've had cravings for very healthy things (I had a salad that was off the CHAIN good, and I ate it like it was the last food on earth.) I haven't done anything... Read more

Precious, beloved sleep

Tuesday, May 08, 2012      7 comments

I had a hard time figuring out what to blog about today. I didn't go to the gym because I just could not wake up. Then I realized... that's what I need to blog about! Sleep is a precious commodity, one that far too many of us set a... Read more

My first run in minimalist shoes

Monday, May 07, 2012      10 comments

One word: Wow! I really, really love these shoes. I got them from Kohl's, on sale, for $35... I figure if I'm going to venture into the world of barefoot running, might as w... Read more

Are you CPR trained?

If not, you need to go. Now. Just about ten minutes ago, I could have lost my 6 1/2 year old daughter. She was eating a freshly-prepared cheese enchilada. She's eaten these things a million times, never with any trouble at all. I a... Read more

This is why the redhead should not forget subblock

I was out in the sun for the majority of the day. First at my daughter's soccer game, although I did go get a beach umbrella and a chair, and then for a couple of hours at an outdoor fair. It seems like I always manage to get one massive sunbur... Read more

Healthy isn't about perfection

Friday, May 04, 2012      6 comments

When I got started here at Sparkpeople back in September (this time) I made myself a vow. I would deny myself nothing. I've kept that philosophy, for the most part, but the difference in my diet is amazing. I look back at what I ate in the pas... Read more

My shoulders hurt, now.

If it's not one thing, it's another. ;) This morning we had a very intense, focused workout in boot camp. It was almost all strength, with a smidge of cardio for warm up and to break up our sets. Full body workout, but I think it's my shoulde... Read more

I got to move it, move it!

Today was a really great day. The workout this morning was a bit less intense than usual; a quick 5 minute warmup on the treadmill, then some light cardio and strength. Nothing scorching, though I did burn about 200 calories in 20 minutes. ... Read more

Incline running hurts!

Tuesday, May 01, 2012      2 comments

I discovered three things today. The first is the obvious. The title of my post! In Boot Camp today, we got on the treadmills and ran intervals. At one point, he had us walking on a 10% incline! It really got my calves and ankles sore... I can... Read more

Up, up, and away!

So today was a great day. It was air show time at Robins Air Force Base! We packed up and shipped out, just a 20 minute drive. It was scorchingly hot... over 90 on the tarmac, at least. I opted for water; and wound up drinking at least 6 glass... Read more

I like tea.

Friday, April 27, 2012      4 comments

I had a little trouble thinking up something to blog about today, but I have a streak to keep up, so I decided to write about something that I love. Tea! I've always enjoyed tea; it was literally the first non-breastmilk beverage I e... Read more

I want to MOVE!

Thursday, April 26, 2012      8 comments

I'm really annoyed right now. I really, really want to go exercise, but I can't. My legs hurt too much for it. I can't tell if it's DOMS or something more like those annoying shin splints, but I wasn't able to work out this morning. My husband p... Read more

Why I'm not a failure!

Wednesday, April 25, 2012      14 comments

I had a revelation today. While I was posting some encouragement on the message boards, I realized something. I've had a hard month or so; I'm stuck on a self-inflicted plateau, I can't control my food, I'm not losing weight, and I can't make an... Read more

Blargh. Dinner spoiled it again.

And this time, I can't blame my husband. He had a lodge meeting, so I took the girls out for pizza. I wanted to try something new, so I got a stromboli (it was, by the way, AWESOME.) I would have been just fine if I'd stopped there... even with... Read more

This isn't working. Help!

Okay folks; I'm not losing weight. And I know why! I eat too much. My current calorie range, based on my activity level, is 1600-1900 - now, if I could EAT in that range, I would lose weight! I know this, because well, last week I did, and I los... Read more
