I have been watching the biggest loser and have been motivated by their ability to put in some serious time at the gym. Granted they are isolated and don't have the added stress of work and family, but it still takes dedication. Those that go ho... Read more

Since bootcamp ended I have been working out faithfully, but it has not been the same. My eating has been atrocious and I can tell I have gained and not lost. I did climb Mount Fuji and realized that I am not as fit as I thought. You can tell yo... Read more

I am on duty so no workout today. Instead I am staying home and doing the things that I can only seem to do on the weekends...cleaning, laundry. Usually I cook for the rest of the week, but I will be going on vacation on Tuesday so it is just a ... Read more

I did my weigh in and measurements for my bootcamp this morning. Hard to believe I have been doing bootcamp for 10 weeks. My weight is up (that time of month) but despite that, my measurements have decreased. (So should be even less when water w... Read more

I have been doing Sparkpeople for about 2 months now. I can't say I have lost a whole lot of weight, but I can tell my fitness level has improved. My run times, my endurance, and my strength have all gotten better. Though we tend to measure succ... Read more
