Quickie BLC Update
Okie dok, so today is the beginning of Week 6 in this Biggest Loser Challenge I'm a part of. On day one I weighed 280.6 and this morning I weighed in at 273.2. Hurray! That is a total loss of 7.4 pounds. I'm averaging a weight loss of about 1.4... Read more
That is EXACTLY how I feel lately.
I'm already an upbeat, positive cheery person by nature but I'm probably bordering on obnoxious to those around me now.
Today was the beginning of the fourth week in a row where I've e... Read more
New Year's Intentions *warning: BL-style BEFORE pics included*
I recently heard someone talk about their dislike of New Year's Resolutions in that there are certain things that just cannot be resolved, and that instead of resolutions per se, they state their intentions for the new year. That struck a chord ... Read more
Week 2 Day 3: Strength-training soreness. YES!!!
Had another pretty good day today! I woke up to gray and totally did not want to get out of bed. Once I did though, I realized just how SORE my upper body was. But I knew it was from a good solid strength-training session and somehow the sorenes... Read more
Week 2 Day 2: Steady as she goes
Today was a good day! I actually *GASP* spent 40 minutes strength-training today. WOOHOO!!! Aiming to do more on Thursday and possibly Saturday. =D
I'm realizing more and more that while the fitness aspect comes relatively easy to me (thank... Read more
Week 2 Day 1: Slightly miffed and confused-but not deterred!
Okie dok. Soooooo....week 1 run down: I tracked food every day (almost every thing I ate, but not quite-gotta work on that), remembered to take my vitamins 5/7 days, got 7-8 hours of sleep 5/7 days, drank at least 8 glasses of water 7/7 days, an... Read more
Okay, so...today has actually been a pretty darn good day. I didn't get as much sleep as I would have liked, but I'm going to bed early so all is well. I woke up early this morning, made my protein smoothie for breakfast (TOOK MY VITAMINS!!!) a... Read more
Okay, so I've been pretty busy this week and have not been successful in my daily (or every-other-daily) blog entry.
This is what I have been successful at:
Getting 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night: 4/5
Tracking what I e... Read more
Getting Back to Basics!
Since the week of Thanksgiving, I haven't really been doing well. I certainly haven't been using the nutrition tracker and my trainers have a slight layer of dust on them. I was sucked into the vortex of family drama and have been stress-eating ... Read more
I believe myself to be a pretty appreciative person. I learned at an early age that gratitude is very important. My glass is pretty much always half-full. I always search for the silver lining. As Thanksgiving draws near, I figured I'd take this... Read more
Remembering, reminding and rebooting.
I've been finding myself in need of three things lately:
Remembering-as in, needing to remember why it is I want to eat kale over cookies, exercise over sleeping in, drink water over soda/juice, etc.
Reminding-as in, needing to remind ... Read more
Last week's entry had me confused at my exercising 9 times the prior week, eating less than the daily caloric recommendation and gaining 2lbs.
This past week I only exercised 3 times, ate the daily caloric recommendation and lost 2.2lbs.

Conundrum: I exercised 9 times this past week...and gained?!
Okay. I need some help/advice/suggestions because I am a bit perplexed. I think I may have figured out the reason why, but thought I'd blog about this and see if it made sense in the end.
So as you know, I'm currently unemployed and waiting... Read more
Note to self: This is why you want to go to grad school.
Soooo, after I left a comment on MARJIMAC63's page, she sagely advised that I keep my reasons for going to grad school somewhere slightly more tangible for future reference when I'm questioning my decision. As such, I've copied and pasted a litt... Read more
Okay. Sooo if you've read my profile, or chances are if I've left you a comment on your page (probably trying to get you to try Zumba for yourself), you probably know by now that Zumba rocks my world. Like, hardcore. In fact, chances are, if I'm... Read more
