Turbo Jam!
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      1 comments

I've switched from 30 Day Shred to Turbo Jam for a while. A friend of mine let me borrow her Turbo Jam DVDs. I forgot how much I loved this class at the Y! I still love the 30 Day Shred too -- but that was a library DVD and I had to bring it ... Read more

Down three today. Feeling less discouraged now. Still not making a lot of progress (back at my starting weight) but down three is good. The scale at least moved in the right direction.... Read more

I'm feeling very discouraged right now. I'm doing my 30 Day Shred, I'm trying to watch what I eat, I'm trying to drink more water, I'm cutting down on my sweets. And the damn scale keeps going up. And up. And up. The last time it went up, I... Read more
Making the Cut

I failed the fitness test in Michaels's book and then I looked at the exercises she has outlined in it. There is no way I can do those exercises at home, and honestly, they're way tough for me -- some of them at least. But I kind of wasn't plan... Read more

x-posted from my blog at I used to brag that I have lost 100 pounds from my all-time high weight. And I guess the truth is I still can say that I have lost one hundred pounds; I just can’t say that I’ve kept it off anym... Read more

I hate hate HATE tracking my food. It's an annoying hassle. I also hate being stuck at my current weight, which I've been stuck at for far too long now. When I first came here, I kept saying that I'd still be happy if I never lost another pou... Read more

Okay, round three, right? I'm really frustrated with logging my calories and activity -- even though I've seen that it works. It's just a hassle to do it every day. But, I've implemented one of Dr. Oz's tips and I've 'automated' eve... Read more
Skinny jeans

We've all got a pair of 'em right? Those jeans that are just one or two sizes too small that you can't quite fit into, but keeping hoping that some day you will? Mine are size "14 S" black jeans. Black because, well, black is slimming, right?... Read more
Still on the Calorie Counting Bandwagon

Today I've stayed within my fat and carb goals, although I'm low on fiber, protein, and overall calories. We just ate a big meal, so I figure I'll have a protein/fiber/diet shake after this food has started to digest and settle a bit. Otherwis... Read more
Calorie Counting Convert

Okay, I am now a total convert to counting calories. I've only been counting calories for seven days, and I've lost seven pounds. I know that's all just "initial weight loss" and expect it to even out to about 1-2 pounds per week soon -- but t... Read more

Today was almost perfect! I got 40 minutes of exercising in, I stayed close to my calorie target (I was less than 10 calories under my target), I got all my fiber in, I stayed under my fat maximum, and I got half of my protein in. I've decided ... Read more

I'm cautiously optimistic today. When I downloaded the CalorieKing software, I weighed 172 I think (I haven't looked at it again recently). My hubby told me he lost seven pounds since starting at CK, so I decided to weigh myself this morning. ... Read more
I'm back ... again!

I've been pretty much maintaining the same weight for a looong time. I don't gain significantly much, but I'm not losing much either. I pretty much keep gaining and losing the same five pounds or so. This weight seems to be my body's "set poi... Read more

Well, the past several months have been hectic. Little Miss B is now home with us, and we could be finalizing the adoption as early as July 2008. There have been plenty of ups and downs along the way! My weight has been up and down too. I th... Read more

October was a wash too. But that's okay, for two reasons. First, I didn't gain any weight. Second, but more importantly, October was a wonderful month. Even though I hardly exercised at all, and my eating has been a bit of a struggle, Octobe... Read more
