Working on pregnancy health and fitness

Thursday, January 26, 2012      2 comments

As of tomorrow, I will be 22 weeks into my pregnancy. I've been working at watching my food intake and trying to eat healthier. I've increased my dairy and reduced the snacks. My meals haven't changed all that much, but I am definitely eating... Read more

Bouncing Back

Friday, July 29, 2011      1 comments

I have had a really tough week in terms of my fitness goals...scheduling snafus and travel helped to kick me off the wagon for a few days. However, I did get myself up and around early this morning to get in my Wii workout (and, yes, it was a w... Read more

New fitness goals

Thursday, July 21, 2011      2 comments

I had set fitness goals for myself a long time ago here on SP. Well, as of this month, I've been exceeding them to the point that the site suggested I change them up! So, I added on more cardio and revised my strength training (which I definit... Read more

Half the month gone

Friday, July 15, 2011      1 comments

Well, I've made it my first two weeks of challenging myself with new fitness goals. With only a few exceptions (holiday travelling), I have successfully gotten in my daily morning workouts of at least 30 minutes. It hasn't been easy some days.... Read more

Getting in the exercise

Monday, July 11, 2011      0 comments

I haven't been on this site in quite awhile. Got married last year and have been super busy with life. Well, I realize that I need to work on some personal goals to make my life better. One of those is to get off this extra weight. I want to... Read more

Obstacles to overcome

Wednesday, October 27, 2010      0 comments

The reflection quote from yesterday said "do not let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do" (John Wooden). I think that has been a major obstacle for me in past years. I haven't been what anyone would call "fit" since I played spor... Read more

New seems to be the watchword!

Friday, October 15, 2010      0 comments

I've been a little distracted in the last year, and I think my efforts have definitely suffered for it! It hasn't been bad, to be sure -- since early 2009, I've gotten engaged, married, and now live in a little house with my new husband. I've ... Read more

Another beginning to another week

Monday, September 21, 2009      0 comments

Well, I wasn't able to get online to track things as much as I would've liked by the end of last week, but I feel pretty good about my choices. I haven't weighed in for quite awhile, but I may take that step by the end of the week. So far,... Read more

Need to JUST DO IT!

Tuesday, September 15, 2009      4 comments

I have started and stopped so many times with my efforts at weight loss and exercise programs I couldn't even begin to remember them all. I have spent the majority of my adult life overweight (although, as I look back on photos of childhood and... Read more

Making new habits

Tuesday, April 28, 2009      2 comments

I have been doing well with my visits to Curves since last week. I made my 3x visits and have started off well this week (went yesterday). The heat doesn't make it easy, especially since the center won't have AC until after May 1st, but I am s... Read more

My biggest fitness accomplishment!

Tuesday, April 21, 2009      5 comments

My biggest fitness accomplishment is actually something that I've just started. I joined in with the Curves/Avon study last night and made appointments for upcoming workouts. To make myself accountable, I decided to participate. Knowing mysel... Read more

New inspiration

Wednesday, March 25, 2009      1 comments

I have been pretty lax for about the past five months, largely due to being away from home and regular access to my email and such. Well, now I have new inspiration to stick to my goals...I'm getting married next year! I've decided that goals ... Read more

A better next day

Wednesday, June 11, 2008      1 comments

I think that having a "good" day is really what I needed to push myself into a bit more positive space. Yesterday I stayed within my ranges, although didn't get in any exercise. Still, it's better than I have been, I'm sure (I haven't logged i... Read more

Still stuck at the start

Tuesday, June 10, 2008      3 comments

It remains my most frustrating thing...I make a teeny bit of progress, then go right back to where I was to begin with. As usual, after having to travel for work and taking vacation, I'm right back where I began. It's hard to stay motivated wh... Read more

A new week

Monday, March 03, 2008      1 comments

I may not have made all my goals for this past weekend, but I definitely made some progress. I managed to get in at least 4 glasses of water per day (I usually do no more than 2, so this is a step forward) and, although the cardio didn't happen... Read more
