Yesterday I did HIIT on the elliptical machine. I like my other options better. If I work hard enough to get into my 90-95% zone, the machine rocks around a bit. Plus the HR feedback is much to slow for interval training & I'd feel like a tool... Read more
Food dream
Tuesday, May 15, 2007      0 comments

So I dreamt about junk food last night, which was a first for me. I think it had to do with me being very down on myself for eating a handful of M&Ms, a handful of potato chips, and half a brownie last night (they were just out for the taking a... Read more

I'm wearing a pair of capris that looked hellish on me when I tried them on a couple of weeks ago, so I'm happy. Lower body workout today. As I'm getting more comfortable with the sigle-leg compound exercises, I'm really seeing the differe... Read more

Friday I had a very intense session with Tony. We've been working on dynamic movements lately, including a lot of jumps. We started with lateral jumps over the bench, then he added tossing a ball as I was doing the jumps. It was challenging, but... Read more
That time of the month

It's my third day, and boy, do I have the munchies. So far I've been able to limit myself to dried peaches, but the urge for ice cream is strong. On the bright side, I'm fitting into my clothes much better. My shorts are no longer slut tigh... Read more
Upper Body Workout
Wednesday, May 09, 2007      0 comments

First of all, I got my period full on yesterday, so I'm pretty depleted. I treated us to steak last night just so I could get some extra iron. Today I did upper body. I missed my workout last week because of a computer disaster which kept m... Read more
HIIT
Tuesday, May 08, 2007      0 comments

So I got my heart monitor/watch/speedometer this weekend. I haven't hooked up the speedometer, but I took the heart monitor for a spin. I was going to TJ's and I figured I'd do HIIT part of the way there, and then give myself an easy rest of rid... Read more
Lots of gettin' around

I spent most of Saturday & Sunday in motion. Saturday I biked for several hours with several hours of walking in between, and Sunday I walked all day. But I went over calories both days. The reasons are related; It was open studios. So I spent 1... Read more
Upper body agony with Tony
Friday, May 04, 2007      0 comments

I had felt kind of cruddy about missing my upper body workout on Wednesday, but I made up for it today. Tony said he wanted to start with stair sprints & I mentioned that I had done them yesterday morning. So he said we'd do a shorter set (only... Read more
Lost Wednesday
Thursday, May 03, 2007      0 comments

So yesterday, which was my first official day of Phase II, was pretty much a loss for me. I didn't go over points (in fact, I may have been low), but I also didn't do the weight workout I was planning in the AM or the swimming class in the even... Read more
Belated entry for May 1
Wednesday, May 02, 2007      0 comments

I went off diet yesterday (April 30) - had a tough day at work; my boss seems to be developing Alzheimer's, which means meetings with her are less than productive. Plus she seems to be developing some very strange paranoia. Everything I say to ... Read more
Monday weigh-in and workout
Monday, April 30, 2007      0 comments

I did a weigh in this morning (I'm planning on doing every Monday when I get to the gym; after breakfast & before working out). I was 151 lbs, down three pounds from last week! After workign out (and drinking a lot of water) I was 152.5, so I ... Read more
Sunday AM measurements
Sunday, April 29, 2007      0 comments

I did HIIT stair sprints on my back steps yesterday AM. I was such a nice day, I wanted to do them outside. It was interesting, because there were so many people hanging out on the private way (my house is on a private way, and the back steps g... Read more
First full session with Tony
Friday, April 27, 2007      0 comments

So I had my first real training session with Tony today. I don't thnk he worked me any harder than I'd work myself, but he put a lot of emphasis on form, which is good. I tend to hunch my shoulders up when I lift (I knew this, but it's hard to ... Read more

Today I got up and first thing I did was go out for a HIIT bike ride. I went to Alewife & back, or about 2 miles, in about 7 minutes. It was definitely more of a workout than 30 minutes on the elliptical, and proably more than an hour of biking... Read more
