Walk Away the Pounds!!
Tonight, for the first time since I was a teenager, I actually started and FINISHED a workout routine--other than walking, which I do with my friend four days a week.
Previously, I've tried a few workout DVDs but nothing has seemed to fit.... Read more
Technology that's helping me change my life...
…because my life could use some changes. Serious changes! I want to live a long time and be healthy (and comfortable) in my skin. So, I’m doing something to help myself reach those goals. I’ve lost (about) eight pounds so far and I’ve done it wi... Read more
I am really struggling today. Normally, I eat three smallish (300 or so calorie) meals and three snacks. Since my diet plan calls for upwards of 1700 calories a day, I try to eat as closely to that as possible, but generally don't like to go ove... Read more
Building a Workout Plan
So, here I am, watching SparkPeople workout videos (just watching them, mind you, not actually doing them yet) and it occurs to me that I have no idea how to build a workout plan or how often I should be doing any of these videos. How many I sho... Read more

I'm absolutely petrified to fly. So, guess what I'm going to be doing on Saturday morning? Yup, flying. I'm not particularly looking forward to it, for a lot of reasons. But, since my husband feels like flying is safer than driving 1350 miles al... Read more
Emotional Eating & Exercise...
So, it's about midnight here in Texas. I wanted to get this written on the 13th, but I suppose it didn't work out that way. I had a pretty bad day, but I'm choosing to think of it as a stumble and look at the bright sides, because even though I ... Read more
Okay, so I learned this morning that I'm in worse shape than I thought. I tried an exercise routine I found on Pintrest and can't do many of the exercises. I managed to get down 30 jumping jacks and 15 squats, but the Russian twist is out becaus... Read more
First few days...
I decided I wouldn't talk about dieting on my personal blog (elsewhere on the web). But when I decided that, in January, I was 45 lbs lighter than I am now. Now, I'm at my heaviest and I feel miserable, but I still don't want to talk about it th... Read more
