I checked out a Jazzercise class!
On Friday my sister and I went to a local Jazzercise open house fundraiser. I have a list of new things that I want to try and since I've never seen Jazzercise before, I wanted to check it out. We got to the studio and it was nice to see all sh... Read more
Instead of popcorn at the movies, I brought grapes!
Today we took our kids to see How To Train Your Dragon. Before we left, we were talking about what size popcorn to get. I told him that I was going to pass on the buttery deliciousness and bring grapes. This is the first time I have ever done th... Read more
Walking with Leslie = 8 inches lost!
I've been walking with Leslie Sansone pretty much every day for the past 2 weeks. I decided to take my measurements again from when I first started and I've lost 8 inches in total! The most significance loss is in my waist, I'm down 4 inches. Ne... Read more
I worked out with my 6 year old today.
I've only worked out with one other person before, and it was never with my daughter. I didn't get my walking in the past 2 days (it was husbands birthday) but today I could really tell a difference, I was sluggish and I had zero energy. After l... Read more
40 floors, 585 steps
Today I agreed to join my friend in the Fight For Air Climb through the American Lung Association. It's 6 weeks away and I'm scared to death! When she first asked me this morning if I wanted to do 70 floors, I said no way! Hello, I'm overweight ... Read more
I have to pay my doctor $20 for him to tell me that I'm overweight!
This is the thought that brought on shame and embarrassment; it was also the thought that changed my life. I know it seems a little dramatic (I was emotional, so I was rolling with it) but this truly was a life changing thought. I haven't been t... Read more
Color me 50!
Today is one of the most defining moments of my life. I accomplished something I never thought I could or would do. It wasn't easy and not real pretty at times, but I did it. Now, I'm not done by a long shot, but this is the half way point for m... Read more
That's how much I've lost in total. It's like I've lost a toddler...well my 2 year old son! It's funny how the body decides to work. I've been chugging along steady with losing weight and now for the past 6 weeks, I've been see-sawing between th... Read more
Pity party for one please
Yesterday was not a good day for me. I was in my “deep dark abyss” stage. Nothing my husband could do or say could get me out of it. All I wanted to do was stay in bed and not go anywhere. After about 2 hours, I finally got dressed and we went s... Read more
Tring to get unstuck
I’ve been stuck at the same weight for the past 2 ½ weeks. I really want to reach my goal of 50 lbs by my wedding anniversary which is 2 weeks away ( I really need to get movin’, I kind of suck in that department right now). One good thing is th... Read more
Crashed and Burned
I must confess that in the past 3 days, I've made absolutely 100% horrible food choices. I feel so guilty about it, that I've stressed myself out and I don't feel well. Well...some of it's the crap that I ate but I totally own it. The old me wo... Read more
Ate a yucky veggie for the first time today!
Yup I did it...I ate my very first sweet potato for lunch today. On the yuck-o scale it's at the very top. I started this "need to branch out on trying new veggies" kick, and this was my first one. Now since I'm in this for life, I can't get stu... Read more
25 down and out!
Well yesterday was a really big day for me, I'm half way to my first goal. When I saw that I lost another 2 lbs and finally made it, I went into the kitchen, told my husband and cried! I was hugging him and bawling all over his shirt, the best p... Read more
I'm kickin' it old school, going back to the 80's. Let me set the scene....5th grade, Mr. Mills class. I remember him standing at his desk talking (not sure about what....I think I totally tuned him out) and I hear him say "Andy can run faster t... Read more
