Just Keep Swimming

Saturday, November 24, 2012      5 comments

That's what I sing to myself when I'm on the treadmill and wanting to stop. When I'm doing my hated reverse delt flies and feel like my arms are going to fall off. When I'm on the leg curl machine and think if I do one more curl my legs will j... Read more

S.L.E.D. Workout - For those that want to know more...

Saturday, November 24, 2012      5 comments

I've made several posts about my new found love for the gym, particularly my S.L.E.D. program. Several people have asked what S.L.E.D. is. It stands for "Stronger, Leaner, Every Day" and it's a series of exercises that you complete. The weigh... Read more

Got up at 11:00 Thursday, spent the day with my family for Thanksgiving, went in to work at 10:00, got off at 6:30 this morning. Did my S.L.E.D. workout then hopped on the treadmill. I usually do 30 minutes on days I do S.L.E.D. I lasted 15 m... Read more

Calorie Drop

Wednesday, November 21, 2012      4 comments

I put my weekly weight in today and got a surprise. I've lost enough weight that my calorie requirements have dropped. Not a huge deal to me because I rarely go over my daily allotment. I was just surprised to see that! Kind of cool, kind of... Read more

Bad Food Night

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      2 comments

Damn Pizza Ranch. I still figure I'm lightyears ahead of the old me with what I chose to eat but holy cow I ate a lot of calories in one sitting tonight. I didn't go over my daily allotment but I feel yucky and bloated and full of a whole lot ... Read more

Monday Madness

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      5 comments

Had one of those absolutely crazy nights at work. The kind where you look at the clock and think "Holy COW where have the past two hours gone!" The kind where you eat your supper cold and on the run because you have just been too busy to eat. ... Read more

Words of Wisdom

Sunday, November 18, 2012      4 comments

If you're tired of starting over, stop giving up. It's so easy to give up. Things get hard, life steps in, you find yourself staring down your favorite treat (chips or chocolate in my case) and you give in. The defeatist attitude kicks in... Read more

Friday Randomness

Saturday, November 17, 2012      1 comments

Worked out two treadmills over from a decent looking guy tonight. No problem! Definitely a big step for me. Still irritated over my pumpkin pie smoothie mess. 3rd shift one night, 2nd shift the next is NOT worth the money. Been ... Read more

So I was super excited to get the Spark People Cookbook. While browsing through, I stumbled across a recipe for a pumpkin pie smoothie. Now I LOVE pumpkin pie and pumpkin pie blizzards, shakes, etc are the bomb so I was super excited to try th... Read more

Favorite Thanksgiving Foods

Thursday, November 15, 2012      4 comments

Hands down, my Mom's dressing. She only makes it on rare occassions and it is so, SO good. I don't have a recipe for it because she does it from memory. She attempted to write it down once but it wasn't quite the same. A close second wou... Read more

I can't really pick a single Thanksgiving that sticks out at my favorite but I can tell you that Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. We always go to my Mom and Dad's and spend the day there. It's a day filled with family, food, games ... Read more

Fruit and Veggies

Thursday, November 15, 2012      3 comments

I've been trying VERY hard to get more fruits and veggies into my diet. My biggest problem right now is the total lack of anything that is fresh. I can get a few things at the grocery store, but nothing beats fresh out of the garden. I've been... Read more

Gym Accomplishment

Wednesday, November 14, 2012      6 comments

When I joined the gym, I was strongly encouraged to set some goals. As I was completely out of shape and got winded walking up a flight of stairs, I set the goal of "running for one minute on the treadmill." It seemed more fantasy than anythin... Read more

Gym Progress

Tuesday, November 13, 2012      7 comments

I sometimes wonder if I am getting fitter by working out at the gym. I'm all about instant gratification and as anyone that works out knows, you don't always get that. Imagine my surprise tonight when I realized that I had not only walke... Read more
