Started Yoga! But Kickboxing Is Ending
I started doing power yoga, and boy is it awesome and kicks my butt. I have been going to kickboxing regularly, but the classes are about to end, and I foresee myself getting that gym membership I've been talking about at the Parks and Rec Cent... Read more
New Coaches Doing A LOT of ST and Core Work
Kickboxing is not the same, but I have been toning quite a bit. The new coaches focus a lot on weights and circuit training. I miss the old coach who would make us run. However, each coach focuses on different styles and mu... Read more
Kick Boxing Coach Quit
I am very, very sad. We got someone to do strength training, but I miss my old coach. :(
(1) Seek long-term happiness.
(2) Drink water, ten glasses daily min.
(3) Clean the house four times a week.
(4) Exercise, twice a week, good h... Read more
Accountability and Honesty, Not Judgement
This morning I was reflecting on what I have been doing well, and what I could do better. I was also thinking back to that two year period when I lost 40 pounds, and all the hours I spent in the gym and the calorie counting I kept. I lost my e... Read more
Moving and Playing Tag! What?!
On Monday, our coach kicked our collective asses. He had us do sprints and burpees and wall sits as well as our kick boxing combos, which are quite fun. It doesn't get much harder for me than that, short of doing planks and sit ups.
Sad... Read more
Well, I Survived the First Week of Kickboxing, Nine More to Go
I won't lie. The next day on Tuesday, my body was crying! I had to take two Tylenol; thank goodness the coach took it a little easier on Wednesday. Phew! Sadly, I only made it to kickboxing and not extra gym class, which I thought was an ach... Read more
Focusing on Activity
Instead of going on an extreme diet or any sort of diet, I am going to work on one habit a month and the fitness aspect. I don't even want to talk about eating.
This month, I am focusing on drinking water, starting with ten glasses day, ... Read more
Starting from Zero
I don't even want to weigh myself. The tight clothes say it all. I am, again, revisiting the whole diabetes diet, except this time, I am definitely going to plan my meals more. I have been somewhat more active with the housework, and my husba... Read more
Stupid Scale. No, I Didn't Gain More Weight
That is why the scale is stupid. I though I gained ten pounds, and I did not. My weight just fluctuates, and what I eat bloats me.
Anyway, the internal journey is going well. I had a wonderful spiritual experience last Wed. Oh, and no... Read more
Ladies and Gent Friend, I Gained 10 Pounds Back
I knew the weight gain was coming because I couldn't maintain that eating plan forever, but I had to fall on my face. Why? To learn a real path to health. Obviously cutting major food groups drastically is not, never, ever, the way to go. It... Read more
Working on Cleaning and Getting Grades in
Today, I am going to work on cleaning the house when I get home after a long meeting. That should help me start packing for our week-long trip, which will start this Sunday.
The other happiness goal is just responding to my student essays ... Read more
Stopped Crying (Not Literally) about the Five Pounds I Gained
I knew it was coming, and frankly, should be grateful I have not gained more given all the parties and cook outs and "occasional" beers.
So, I am taking a different approach to the eating and it's nothing original as a lot of books have bee... Read more
Keeping on, Drinking Water
Sticking with it and prioritizing water today.
On a downer, I gained 5 pounds back. :(
(1) Make the best possible food choices genuine preferences.
(1.5) Try to eat a little less each time and drink water.
(2) Do what you love.

Trying the Middle Road, Again
Those 30 pounds I lost are coming back. How do I know? That skirt that was fitting ever so well got caught on my left thigh yesterday. Not, my finest moment.
Reality check #2, I can't go back to that extreme way of ... Read more
Started off with a good breakfast
I am starting with my healthy preferences. I had a zucchini and egg scramble with dark coffee and one slice of white bread: The white bread was a little bit of a cheat, but that's not entirely true because there are no cheats. For l... Read more
