I've been in a bit of a funk, and I think I need to remember the positives of the last few days:
(1) In less than 60 days, I made a commitment to permanently change my eating habits.
(2) I read all labels.
(3) I measure everything that ... Read more
Change Is Constant
I really can't wait for my shred DVD. I need a change. I just hope I can get it in with the kids around. Maybe if I can do three different types of exercises and rotate them (jog, ellipitcal, dvd)...then no two days are the same. Now, I have to ... Read more
I think I can!
Yesterday was a blah day. I don't know if it was just sinuses, or what. My legs felt like lead on the elliptical. I am glad that I pushed through my blah feelings and just stuck to it. I have made so many positive changes in food choices, and da... Read more
The furnace is in high gear!
The interval training really does the trick. I swear.
On another note, I am running a concession stand tomorrow for my son's Pinewood Derby. Nothing that I'm selling is a good choice for me, so I will be packing my food. Thankfully I don't... Read more
Sometimes Even I Surprise Myself!
So I have been very diligent with keeping within my calorie range....but the last few weeks I have missed at least one day of exercise (okay okay...so I exercised the other 5-6 days and we could all use a day off, right?). I thought that, even t... Read more
I am happy for a few reasons:
1 - I woke up today
2 - I did not wake up sore
3 - I did not wake up congested and thought I would with my sinus issues
4 - I got back on the elliptical last night
5 - Hubby made a super dinner last ni... Read more
Illness and Good Shoes
I have been healthy since the start of my weight loss journey. Last night, just before my jog, I had pain in/around my right eye. I knew it was my sinuses. Ugh. I went for my jog. At bedtime, my right ear had pressure, along with my eye. I took ... Read more
Back to Six
Six meals a day, that is. The weekend was just so weird! I did not eat my six meals per day. I did journal, and I got in at least one snack...but it was just off! I got my water too.
I'm sporting a pedometer today. I want to see how much I... Read more
I got my 3 miles in, doing a combo of a slow and steady jog, and 20 minutes on the elliptical. I may walk every other day so that I am not wiped (I will be doing this 4 days total...4-5k runs in 4 days?????? I can DO this. he he.
Then, I wa... Read more
A 10 minute mile! Can you believe it? Me?!
I've been using the elliptical since the start of January. For the first week, I could not make it more than 5 minutes. I'm up to 40 minutes now....and added interval training to kick it up a notch. Well...I pondered things and was at the Wal-Ma... Read more
I don't know about you....but yahoooooooooooooo it's Friday! This was a particularly different week for me. My mode of transporation and commute changed. The result? Less than an hour per night with my kids. They didn't like it, and neither did ... Read more
Today Ends as a Whimper
Not enough water consumed, not enough calories consumed, no workout for me because I fear I could injure myself from exhaustion. I've been up since 3:45am. I hope SP and my groups can forgive my slacker status for just this day. Although not eno... Read more
Committing to Circuit
When I first started working out at the start of January, I would switch between Pilates for Dummies and the elliptical. Now, it's primarily the elliptical. I would see SP reminding me that I had Circuit to do...but I thought 'hey, I'm burning f... Read more
I have been suffering with ovarian cysts for some time now. They got worse after the 'grill' was closed (i.e. no more babies). As a result, I can go through that TOM twice in a month, or once but for a longer duration. I was hit with the twice a... Read more
You Can't Always Have Cake
I love dessert. I was really forgoing the cakes/ice cream/etc. If I had something somewhat sweet, it was a hot apple w/ splenda/cinnamon/nutmeg. YUM. That did me just fine. Well, I made a V-day cake with my girls on Sunday. I had one piece on th... Read more
