Trying new things
Tuesday, October 02, 2012      2 comments

Part of my October challenge is to try new, healthy foods or recipes every week. This is a big week for me, I am trying three. I've got a slimmed down stew going in the slow cooker right now. It looks and smells pretty good and I'll be serving... Read more

It's been nearly 2 months since my last blog. A long time, I know, but I am an admitted procrastinator. (In fact, I am putting off my walk by blogging right now) This morning I weighed in @184 pounds. That is a full 20 pounds lighter than ... Read more

What a sucktastic day! I had to be at work early (and 35 miles away) so I had no time to walk before work. I also needed to plan on being stuck in traffic, so I restricted my water intake. Work itself wasn't particularly bad, but there was ... Read more

I refused to go to the gym on Tuesday because my forearm was super-tender (see my last blog entry.) But today is a different story. DH is going to bring me in on a guest pass and I will use the equipment (with supervision) and see how I like it.... Read more

Spent some time with my family last night
Monday, June 04, 2012      1 comments

Yesterday was my wedding anniversary, but we actually visited my family to celebrate my aunt's birthday. Which is typical of my family--birthday equals get-together with fattening food and cake. I resisted (honestly I wasn't really hungry) and h... Read more
I'm going to call this a cheat day

It is my wedding anniversary. DH and I are going to see the LI Ducks play. That means we will be eating ballpark food. I'm not going to make stupid choices and won't be drinking anything besides water. However, I am not going to get stressed ... Read more

Sunday and Strength
Sunday, May 20, 2012      5 comments

I made it to 1000 fitness minutes for the month today. I don't think I had that many fitness minutes for all of 2011. I'm feeling pretty good. And kinda pumped because it was a strength training day. I can feel it in my arms, so I guess it is w... Read more
