6 weeks of P90X, no weight lost, what am I doing wrong? :(
I am about to finish Week 6 of P90X.
I have lost THREE POUNDS. That is it. I am workout out every day (except Sundays), sticking to 1,600-1,800 calories per day... and I have only lost THREE POUNDS. What's worse, is that I've told just ab... Read more
One Year Later
May 6th marked the one-year anniversary of when I started my weight-loss journey. I am down 60 lbs and 4 sizes.
I did not lose as much as I would have liked to. Actually, I haven't lost anything in the last month because I haven't been as... Read more
And... my first 5K is tomorrow!
I am feeling a bit nervous. I'm on Week 5 of Couch to 5K... the workout I was scheduled to do today was the 20-minute run, but I opted for a 35-minute walk (at 4 mph) and tomorrow I will simply run for as long as I can. I am hoping to run for... Read more
Just registered for my first 5K!
I'm finally taking the big step! I'll be running my first-ever 5K on May 1st!!
Last fall (during Sept/Oct) I was doing the Couch to 5K program. Somewhere around week 6 I sort of fell off the bandwagon... I couldn't finish week 6 (too toug... Read more
What a difference 55 lbs makes!!!
This morning I was trying to find something to wear... the weather was supposed to be in the low 70's so I decided to wear something short-sleeve. Everything I pulled out of my closet was a tent! I did find one shirt that wasn't too big (it wa... Read more
My new favorite number.... 14 :)
This morning, I was able to put on my size 14 jeans... for the first time in 2.5 years!! Yay! (Okay, so nine months of that was during my last pregnancy, so that doesn't really count). I have two pairs of size 14 jeans (Riders and Gap) and I ... Read more
Some things are more noticeable in HDTV...
A couple months ago I posted about my DVD player being broken, and not being able to use most of my DVD's. I tried using a couple of my old VHS workouts but ended up not working out much at all. Oops!
Around Christmastime, my husband ende... Read more

Good thing I didn't throw out my VHS tapes
When I moved last year, I got rid of a ton of my VHS workout tapes... more than 80. I kept a few of them- my Joyce Vedral workouts (I bought 'em nearly 10 years ago), some Cathe workouts (way too advanced for me right now), some Leslie Sansone... Read more
And down it goes again....
I've scarcely lost any weight over the past couple months. I've been doing the Couch to 5K program, and on alternating days I've been doing a 3-mile Leslie Sansone walk. It was very frustrating, working so hard and the scale was not budging.

Feeling so depressed today...
Yesterday, my 11-year-old son was outside with one of his friends, organizing the stuff in our carport (mostly tools & garden stuff & whatnot), when the friend's brother, J, (he's 15 or 16) came over and started sifting through our stuff. This ... Read more
And the doctor says...
A couple weeks ago I went to the doctor to find out why I haven't had a period in more than 3 months, and to find out, again, why I am having such a hard time losing weight. So he ordered a blood test.
Results came in last week and I mana... Read more
Physique 57 Full Body Workout... ouch.
This morning I did the Physique 57 Full Body workout. I did it last Thursday too... and Friday night I could barely lay down, my abs were so sore! My entire abs, from my ribcage clear down to my pelvis. Ouch. And it hurt so bad to sneeze... ... Read more
Went out of town, and now I feel like crud!
On Friday my family and I left for a weekend trip so my son could attend a merit-badge training class. We ate fast food for dinner Friday night, and lunch & dinner on Saturday! (At breakfast I had a so-so breakfast, dried-up scrambled eggs and... Read more
Surprised at how underwhelmed my family is...
And I'm feeling just a little bit hurt about it.
I have made GREAT strides in my fitness level over the past few months. I've lost 35 lbs (still have 60+ to go), I have lowered my average resting heart rate by 18%, from 88 to 72. (My bloo... Read more
