New Year's Resolution
Monday, January 05, 2015      3 comments

I have been on the fence about making resolutions. It is always so disappointing when I do not achieve them. So I will make a goal this year. My goal is to take ownership of my workouts. I take several classes at the gym and it is very easy ... Read more

I had a couple of days off last week and decided to try a new workout. So I signed up for a free class at Title Boxing. They class was free and they let me borrow some boxing gloves, but I needed to buy my own hand wraps. When you go in there ... Read more

Sliding Back Into Old Habits
Monday, November 03, 2014      4 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to tweak my eating. I decided to reduce the amount of carbohydrates that I ate and increase the amount of protein. This was just a tweak, by no means was I doing Atkins or even what could be defined as truly lo... Read more
Tufts 10K
Tuesday, October 14, 2014      3 comments

I did the Tufts 10K yesterday. It is always so much fun. This is my third year doing it. If you are a woman living in the Boston area and want to run a 10K I highly recommend this one. It is very empowering to run with 5,000 other women. ... Read more

Tracker Doing Its Job
Saturday, September 13, 2014      0 comments

A couple of weeks ago, I bought a SP Tracker. My numbers have been good during the week, but today is the first Saturday that I have worn my tracker. I was on vacation and so today I have spent the day cleaning my house, doing loads of laundry... Read more
Frustrated With Tracking
Thursday, August 21, 2014      6 comments

I am sick of tracking. I eat about 1300 calories a day. I plan my meals and cook them from scratch. In an effort to incorporate more vegetables into my diet, I have been using the Vegan Before 6 principle, which means I eat a vegan breakfast,... Read more

I have been feeling so great this week. I am eating well and my workouts have been going great. I haven't stepped on the scale (I am afraid to), but I am just so excited about how I feel. This morning as I was starting my day, the power went ... Read more
Surprised I am feeling so Good
Tuesday, August 12, 2014      4 comments

I had my yearly physical about a month ago and everything went well. My blood pressure is borderline high. My doctor said to me that strength training can actually increase your blood pressure whereas cardio can lower it. He knows I work out... Read more
Junk Food
Thursday, August 07, 2014      1 comments

Junk Food has been creeping back into my diet on a regular basis. I just went out to lunch with some friends and I did not get the salad, I did get a side of asparagus instead of the french fries (1 point for me). I am not beating myself up ab... Read more

No Trainer

I love strength training. I would rather do that than cardio. I enjoy running because I enjoy doing the races with my friends. I have been struggling with my running program for a while. I don't push myself. I feel very lackadaisical about ... Read more

I know I sounding like a broken record, but I am onto something with this water thing. It is only day 3 of my 100 day challenge (actually I started drinking at least 8 glasses a day a couple of days before I joined the challenge), but the compa... Read more
