These are my current goals, which I plan to reevaluate after 4 weeks. I'll want to add more strength training, but my focus right now is to get nutrition under control and make exercise a habit again. I have to be realistic about the amount of t... Read more
Time to get real

As much as I hate to admit it, I've regained nearly all the weight I lost on Spark in 2008. It's taken time, and my plan was to lose 20 lbs. this summer, not gain a few more. I hurt my back in July and I let myself eat whatever since I couldn't ... Read more

Revamp of July goals
Friday, July 15, 2011      5 comments

I've been battling a pinched nerve in my back for 3 weeks. It was somewhat better a week ago and then we painted all weekend. Bad idea. That really aggravated the situation. I went to the dr. today and she prescribed muscle relaxers, pain meds, ... Read more

I haven't done well the past 4 weeks. I was super busy in June teaching summer school, taking a math workshop, and another online class. I struggled to get into a good workout routine. July will be busy, but not quite so much so here are my mini... Read more

Day 3 of eating according to plan and nothing else. Workouts are going well too. I should find out tomorrow whether I have to pack my whole classroom and move again or if I'm staying where I'm at. If I have to move it's one more thing to add t... Read more
A good day all around

My day started off with a 20 pt. spin on the wheel. I got a walk in at lunch and did ST after school. I needed it because I was so wound up after my meeting. Long story short is that when "stress inducing co worker" tried to throw me under th... Read more
5k and other random stuff
Saturday, April 30, 2011      8 comments

I was going to skip the 5k our school wellness committee scheduled for today because my coworker from he** was signed up to go. I decided, what the heck, I'm going. I'll just avoid her. She ended up not showing up, but I did get stuck walking wi... Read more

Got 40 min. on the TM done and nutrition was pretty good. I did have a small indulgence tonight, but nothing big. Work stress is still in high gear. I'm thankful to have so many supportive co workers and administrators who support me. It make... Read more

I helped set the breakfast up today and boy did everything look yummy! I then went up and offered to take over door duty so that person could go to breakfast. I helped clean up and allowed myself 4 bites of a cinnamon roll. I'm calling it a succ... Read more
Day 29 & tomorrow's challenge
Tuesday, April 26, 2011      4 comments

Another good day of sticking to my nutrition plan and getting 65 min. of cardio and ST in. The soccer fields are so saturated that they moved the varsity game to the town where we live (my son attends about 10 mi. away because we moved here just... Read more
Week 4 off to a good start
Monday, April 25, 2011      4 comments

I skipped my morning workout today so I made up my mind to walk at lunch (20-25 min. on a good day). It hadn't started raining yet so I was able to walk 25 min. with a friend. My son's soccer game ended up getting canceled due to rain so I got a... Read more
Day 23

Things are going pretty well so far this week. I was exhausted last night and it was only Monday! I went to bed early and chose to sleep instead of work out. I must have needed it because today was much better. The weather was so crappy today I ... Read more
Day 20
Saturday, April 16, 2011      8 comments

Almost 3 weeks into my new plan and exercise & nutrition are finally starting to become habit again. It feels good to see the scale go down and to want exercise again. It's been a while since that was the case. I'm down 1.4 lbs. this week, since... Read more

Thursday, April 14, 2011      6 comments

It's been a few days since I've blogged. I've upped my calories this week and the scale is moving in the right direction. I think my calories were too low before. I'm getting more consistent with my exercise and nutrition has been really on targ... Read more
