Turning 33 needs to be a turning point
To be honest, birthdays are never a particularly big deal for me. Once I passed 21, it didn't seem particularly important.
This birthday feels a little different. I am at my parents, playing Auntie to my brand new and first niece. As I wa... Read more
On the wagon, week 5, day 3- a day of realizations
Today I learned a two things.
1) there are never enough treadmills at 5 PM in the gym. By the time I got there- there was a decent line for the treadmills. I waited for about 5 minutes. I really wanted to do 3 miles on the treadmill today, bu... Read more
On the wagon, week 5, day 2- A review of last week, looking ahead to this week
Last week was actually a good week, even if I only lost 0.6 lbs. I managed to stay in my calorie range almost the whole week. I worked out with my Jillian Michaels Biggest Winner dvd's most of last week. Granted, it was only30 minutes a day, but... Read more

On the wagon- week 3, day 3- feeling better, but ow pilates
Today was actually a fairly good day. I was able to stay within my calories, get a fair deal of fruits and veggies, and almost 8 glasses of water. Despite some urges to be a little wicked with chocolate or snackies, I had oranges. Perhaps not a... Read more
On the wagon- week 3, day 2- barely hanging on
Ugh- it was a rough week last week, and it is leading into what I can only imagine is going to be a rougher one.
Although last week I was able to keep up with my calorie range (except for the part that follows), I just wasn't able to get to... Read more
Still on the Wagon, Week 2 Day 3- Pilates
Today was a close day. I went to my in-laws, and we had some pretty bad food-deliciously bad food. Thankfully, I was really really good for the whole start of the day, so I still squeaked into my calorie goals, so I am mildly impressed I managed... Read more
Still on the Wagon, Week 2 Day 2
This was a pretty long day- 30 hours of work without rest really lulls me into a lazy vibe. I still managed to stay in my calorie range, and got a wii active workout in. I am definitely enjoying wii active- boxing, tennis and jogging are such fu... Read more
Still on the Wagon, Week 2, Day 1...looking back on the year
The start of a new week, a new year, and the continuation of the challenge I started last week- trying to stay within my calorie range, while continuing to be physically active.
This last year was crazy- I had great highs, and some very lo... Read more
Still on the Wagon, Week 1, Day #3
I played a little of my Biggest Loser Wii game, and Bob said something to the effect of there is no finish line, it is a daily choice. Today was a little harder than yesterday. I didn't have to go into work, it was cold and snowy...I just wanted... Read more
Still on the Wagon, Week 1, Day #2
I have decided to try to keep track- to hopefully build momentum into being a healthier me. I recorded all of my food for today, and staying within my calorie range, and within my parameters which I think is a first. I also managed a some circu... Read more
Caught up with the wagon...now if I can stay on
Today was my first day back being healthy in awhile. I fell off the eating healthy wagon, and then was ran over by the physically fit wagon. Today, I have managed to catch up with both of them. I tracked all the food I ate, and everything I sipp... Read more
I am a first time Auntie!!!!!!
I just had to hop on and blog-though blogging late- that my little sister (she is 30, me 32) just had the first grand baby. It didn't go as planned- my sister ended up in the hospital early, and had an emergent c-section early early this mornin... Read more
Fell off the wagon- walk/jogging to catch up finally!
Well, it has been months since my last blog, so this might be a little long. It has been a rough few months. I had a very busy work schedule full of 12 hour days for a month, i am job hunting, and had a pretty rough patch in my personal life. I ... Read more
