Reflection and recognition.

Lately, my pants have not been fitting... in the most uncomfortable way. Argh. The fact that I'm starting (restarting) to track my nutrition on New Year's Day is truly a coincidence. My pants have only been bothering me for a week or two.... Read more

Morning Routine and Wii update

Wednesday, February 17, 2010      0 comments

A few weeks ago, I blogged about my realization that I was making my own life harder by changing my routine every few days since part of my job. I wrote about some changes I was going to make so I could take back some control, and I have an upd... Read more

Monday, January 18, 2010      2 comments

We've decided to buy Wii for fun activity & fitness. Seems nothing comes together. What should we shop for? What should we skip?... Read more

Ugh. Yay. Grr. Yay. (On forced gratitude still being good.)

Today I have been in a fairly crappy mood. I was worn out from being "on" for two days straight leading a retreat, and then I slept poorly despite the Benadryl I took. I had an immediate deadline first thing in the morning and everything seeme... Read more

Whoa whoa whoa. Time for a break.

Oh my. I think I might need a break from the cardio today, and I'll take it. I did an hour of circuit training on Saturday, Billy Blanks Tae Bo on Sunday, dance cardio DVDs on Monday and Tuesday, and "Spark your Life" bootcamp videos Monday, T... Read more

Today I am grateful for my hubby who does the laundry for me, for a car that can drive in the snow without the breaks locking up, for a good friend to lead a retreat with me and a professional consultant who is a fun and kind coach, and a warm, ... Read more

Boot camp!

Sunday, January 03, 2010      0 comments

So the new boot camp starts today! I admit I'm disappointed that they're recycling old videos, but no matter. It isn't like I haven't been using old videos every day for months... but I was hoping for new ones. I am not a fan of the... Read more

Thinking out the changes (I can and want to make) as I type

Sunday, January 03, 2010      1 comments

Today's the first day of another boot camp. I'm excited! Starting weight: 205. *whimper* Right where I was in Christmas 2008. But I can't get bogged down by that. I did get down to 192 before coming back up. That isn't a ton. Not a ... Read more

Art of Hosting

Saturday, December 12, 2009      0 comments

I've just completed a three-day training in the Art of Hosting. I definitely think it is the sort of thing for which training is only the tip of the iceberg--there is so much more to learn and understand. So, I am grateful for the opportun... Read more

Wow, I am so not doing this daily, am I? But that's okay! It's okay, right? Please tell me it's okay. *cough* ANYway... 1. I am grateful that my husband not only wants to cook our meals and brew our beer, he's great at it! ... Read more

I've seen that others use their SparkPeople blog for a gratitude journal. I think I'll do the same just to get some practice. So, the next several entries will be gratitude entires. For today: 1. I am grateful for a home that is lar... Read more

Pedometers and beer. And cookies. And stuff.

emoticonI have fallen in love with my pedometer. I admit it. It's so nice to have a big number to look at after a da... Read more

Getting re-acquainted with the horse

Saturday, August 15, 2009      3 comments

Thursday morning I stepped on the scale. Back over 200 lbs. Back all the way to before new year's. Strip away the summer runs. Strip away the January bootcamp and weeks of 450+ minutes of activity every week. Strip away the days/hours/agoni... Read more

Do 3-5 minutes of easy activity. Emphasis on easy.
