Just spent an hour and a half entering just ONE hypothetical day's menu into the Spark Nutritional Tracker so that I could see if my choices were within my calorie target zone. Although I'm encouraged to know my choices WERE on target, I'm VERY ... Read more
Getting Ready

Tomorrow afternoon is my first official coached session with my team. It's like I'm back in high school, crouched at the start line for the 100m dash and waiting for the ref to fire the start gun. I'm so tense it hurts. In an effort not to... Read more

Just finished taking my measurements for the first time since before getting pregnant. I couldn't find my cloth tape measure so I used a piece of yarn and standard school ruler. So the results aren't exact (they'll get exact measurements at my f... Read more

Well, I have officially handed over my payment for the Lose-To-Win program at my local YMCA. The person at the counter asked if I was excited. I replied that I felt like I was signing up for the firing squad. But somehow I knew it was for my own... Read more
The Carrots Attacked Me!

Eating too many raw carrots has given me heartburn for about a decade now. However, over the last year I've noticed eating just one or two will make my tongue itch/hurt like someone is poking it with a very sharp needle. Without any conscious de... Read more

Talked to the gym this morning and they're looking into what they can do for me, but hubby says we'll make it work either way, so I'm definitely joining this session! EEK! Now that it's "real", I'm starting to freak out a little. I've barely exe... Read more

Well it's been just shy of a week since my last post so I thought I'd update you on how I'm doing. Last week I did manage to get 4 days of exercise in. In fact, I exercised every day from Sunday to Wednesday. Then Wednesday night I didn't get en... Read more
The long road back

Let's just start by saying I am in the worst physical shape I have ever been in. EVER. EVER! That said, I am in a MUCH healthier mental place than I have been in for a loooooooong time. You see, the strangest thing that happened to m... Read more

I find it very ironic that I am training for a running event, because I feel like I am always running. I'm running down the hall to quickly ascertain the reason for the latest burst of tears, I'm running out to the car to load up, I'm running up... Read more

I get to the gym at 10:50am and as I'm checking my baby into Child Watch I remember that he's due to eat. So instead of handing the Child Watch people a hungry baby and a bottle I offer to feed him before I workout if they can just hold him whi... Read more

So first of all, yes, I did make it to Zumba last night as planned. And I had a blast of course! It feels so good to be back to me and to be exercising again that I'm tempted to overdue it. Like last night after Zumba I was SOOO tempted to... Read more
Day 1
Tuesday, January 04, 2011      1 comments

What is it about Day 1 that makes things seem so easy? My motivation is always high on Day 1 and usually things go great unless something out of control happens. If only Day 1 could happen every day. Alas life is just not like that, so I'm going... Read more
