Goal related dilemma, not weight loss related
Wednesday, January 26, 2011      4 comments

First, thanks for all the well wishes yesterday. I was feeling good enough today to hit the treadmill after work. Just a twinge of a sore throat left over. This is probably more of a girl blog since it's related to hair and how to or whether t... Read more
Give me a break

So, right after I get the ok from the dr. to start lifting weights again I catch a cold. It wasn't terrible, so I was able to work out some, but not as much as I wanted. I was up early yesterday and got a great ST workout in. I had a crazy, bus... Read more

I've come down with a cold and was moving very slowly this morning so no morning workout. After a while at work I started to feel a little more energetic so we made it through the day. We had after school program so that means an extra hour tuto... Read more

I feel like I'm gaining a little momentum. I got another 35 min. on the TM tonight after sitting in meetings all day today. I felt a little slow, but that's probably because I'm coming down with a cold. It figures. I finally go back to the dr. t... Read more

Today was a much better day. I started the day with 35 min. on the treadmill and the leg tolerated it pretty well. It isn't as fast or with as much incline as it was before the surgery, but it's better than last week so that's progress! It is... Read more

I had surgery on my leg almost 2 weeks ago and haven't been able to do any ST, intervals, etc. I am only allowed to walk and even that was painful. My goal was to keep my nutrition clean the past 2 weeks and do what cardio I could. I had some go... Read more

I saw part of the Kennedy Center Honors show the other night. Sidney Portier was honoring Oprah and he was talking about how little she had growing up. He went on to say that what she did have was already within her and it has gotten her to wher... Read more
A Valid Excuse
Thursday, December 30, 2010      6 comments

No, not an excuse for not working out or eating right, but an excuse to all those people who ask my why I'm eating the way I am or working out. The positive thing for me about my cholesterol being up is that I can use it as my "reason" for doing... Read more

I had my yearly appointment with the endocrinologist today. I have a strong family history of heart disease so I have been on meds for years. I had very good numbers last year even though I'd gained back some of the weight I'd lost the year befo... Read more
Cutting myself some slack
Tuesday, December 07, 2010      6 comments

I started a new program yesterday and missed my very first workout! Not that long ago I would have either "started over tomorrow" and possibly blown the rest of the day or at the very least, let it drive me crazy. I'd worry about when I could ma... Read more

I've had a good week and the sugar cravings have gone away. I knew it would be a battle for a few days and then it would get easier and it has. I'm experiencing very few cravings now. I've gotten all my workouts in so far this week. My son and I... Read more

My stepdaughter and I went to pick up the girls and the older one (my student, 8 yrs.) was crying and didn't want to leave her mom. Her mom reassured her that we were going to have fun and we would take good care of her. We went to McDonalds (th... Read more

Thanks for all your kind comments on yesterday's blog. The family started their move today and I'm so glad for that. We have our outing all planned for tomorrow night. It's nice to have older children (one still at home) at home. It gives me mor... Read more
