Measurements, hamstrings, and the first day of school
Down another pound this morning...yay! It feels good to see the numbers going down, rather than up. I am trying not to get too hung up on the scale, however. I measured myself last week and found that since March, I have lost 4.5 inches from my... Read more
Pilates is kicking my @**
Pilates. Holy Smokes. I feel like a wet ball of dough tonight after doing a half hour of pilates over the weekend and 20 minutes after work today. It makes me realize how crazy out of shape I am! My abs, legs, arms, and shoulders are definitel... Read more
Feeling good about how far I've come (Thanks DARKLIGHT31:)
DARKLIGHT31 posted this on her blog today:
I loved it! I have been feeling kinda down on myself lately because of being so lax with my eating and fitness while I was ... Read more
Stress, cramps, and backaches...oh my!
I'm feeling stressed and overwhelmed at the moment. Here's what's getting to me:
1. Stupid hormones -- During the past year or so, my cycle has been getting more and more erratic. I used to be pretty regular, but the closer I got to 40, th... Read more
Operation Back On the Bandwagon -- part 2
My friends from Maine left yesterday and we had a wonderful weekend! Good thing we lost our car at the airport on Wednesday, because that contributed to my highest step count of the week! This week is my last week of summer vacation before hea... Read more
Another walking date with Leslie today :)
Yep, I walked today...yahoo! I can definitely tell that I haven't been doing these walks for awhile; I can feel the muscles in my calves, thighs and butt. The thing I like about her workouts is that they do use a lot more muscle groups than I ... Read more
All right, you've had your vacation, now get back to work!
The title of this post is what I told myself today. I got back from Maine last Sunday and have been pretty darn lazy ever since. The seven weeks away from home and routine definitely had an impact on my healthy eating and exercising (and not i... Read more
Another goal met!
So I have been very neglectful of my blog this summer. I am in Maine for another 3 weeks and between working and visiting with all my peeps, I have let this blog slide. However, I had to record a milestone that I met today!
This evening I l... Read more
The comment I've been waiting for...
Since I'm a teacher, I have summers off. I live in PA now, but I lived in Maine my whole life until 5 years ago. I go back to Maine every summer for about 7 weeks to work (cooking at a summer camp. Fun!) and to visit my best friend and my family... Read more
And now it's time to take my own advice
I didn't fall completely off the wagon this weekend, but I really wasn't mindful about eating and exercising. It was just kind of a lazy weekend with impromptu get-togethers, and not a lot of planning about healthy options. I ended up eating a ... Read more
More good news from the doctor
I had an appointment this morning to review lab results from bloodwork I had done last week and got some good news: my cholesterol, while still high, is down about 30 points and my triglicerides are down from 208 to 168! That's still high too (... Read more
I met my first health goal today :)
I just got back from a check-up at the doctor and guess who gets to stop taking blood pressure meds?? Oh yeah, it's me Read more
Evidence that I'm going in the right direction
For awhile now, months, maybe even a year(Or two? Three?), I've noticed that when I put on my sneakers, I haven't been able to lift my ankle up to rest on the opposite knee. I've put my shoes on like this my whole life, but I can't remember when... Read more
I'm a pear!
Even though the %$* scale hasn't dropped below 247 (yet!), I am noticing a difference in the way my body feels and how my clothes fit, especially my shirts. I took my measurements this morning and I have lost a total of 4 inches off my waist ... Read more
I sent myself a goodie.
Yeah, I just sent myself a goodie. Today, I have been with SP for 9 weeks, and I have logged on every single day for those 9 weeks. I have eaten well, drank my water, and done some form of exercise on most days for 9 whole weeks. I've has some s... Read more
