Friday, February 01, 2013      2 comments

One of my best friends was diagnosed with breast cancer right at the start of the year. She is just 41 years old. She had a lumpectomy a couple weeks ago and will start chemo next week. Double masectomy is planned in the near future. Scary time ... Read more
Another new start...

Last winter I decided enough was enough and started seeing a trainer a couple of times a week. She kicked my butt and it was exhausting, but I actually started to see some real progress and felt great...until old habits and financial stresses ca... Read more
Getting back into the saddle...

Two weeks ago I felt amazing and was so energized and happy about my progress, then things took a nose dive. Out of nowhere, my knees started acting up with tons of pain and swelling. I have chronic knee issues with my kneecaps not lining up pro... Read more

The Spokane weather for the last 2 weeks has included rain, sleet, snow, high winds and frigid temps. The forecast for the next 2-3 weeks includes more of the same, although the temps should be going up slightly. UGH!!!! This weather and the per... Read more

I accomplished my exercise, water consumption, food tracking and calorie intake goals for two days in a row! I've decided I'm going to celebrate these 2 days because it really feels great! I stopped at the grocery store on my way to work and sto... Read more
Need some serious motivation!
Monday, March 19, 2012      4 comments

I'm really not sure what is going on with my head. I seem to have hit a brick wall and am constantly feeling unmotivated and uninspired. Pretty much since the start of the year, I've been dragging butt and have hardly lost any weight. Where has ... Read more
Sick and feeling unmotivated
Monday, January 16, 2012      1 comments

I'm mostly writing today to give myself a little kick in the rear end and get motivated again. It seems to help when I verbalize (or in this case write) what I've been doing right and wrong and to remind myself of my over all goals. I've ... Read more
Weighing and measuring
Monday, January 09, 2012      1 comments

I had my January weighing and measuring with my trainer a few days ago. I was very disappointed I didn't reach my double digit loss goal since I made it to all of my work out appointments and for the most part felt I did OK with my food, but aft... Read more
Bah Humbug!

The few days before and after Christmas were actually harder than I had hoped. I went into it thinking it would be no problem, but family drama and stress proved stronger than my will power. I had truly believed that surely a few days at home wo... Read more

I weighed and measured again the first weekend of December and was pleased to see that I lost just over 9 pounds, gained 1 pound of muscle and lost LOTS of inches. Not bad for 1 month of training and eating healthy (plus almost 1 week of vacatio... Read more

We had a wonderful time on the Oregon Coast over Thanksgiving. Our rental house in Lincoln City was gorgeous and right on the beach. We'll definitely rent this place again! The weather was great for two full days, so we were able to walk and pla... Read more
Sore, but worth it!
Friday, November 18, 2011      5 comments

I've made it through 2 1/2 weeks and 5 training sessions and am still feeling really motivated. My body is constantly sore from working out with the trainer. She tells me the soreness will never go away as long as I continue to work out with her... Read more
Day 2 of food Hell
Tuesday, November 08, 2011      3 comments

Who would ever think I'd actually be sick of eating?!? I'm on day 2 of this food hell of eating every 2 1/2 - 3 hours whether I'm hungry or not. Who knew it would be so hard to eat so much, yet be taking in way less calories than I would normall... Read more
Off to a great start!

5 days ago I went to a trainer for the first time in 10 years. What an eye opening experience! The first workout made me want to pass out and puke...almost did both. I was really tempted to not go back, especially after being in incredible... Read more
