Tuesday, August 17, 2010      2 comments

It wasn't easy, but I nixed my beloved kickboxing class last night in favor of "Body Step." Basically it's a step aerobics class. Since I've only taken this particular step class once before, a long time ago, it took a while to get the hang of a... Read more

I have been losing and gaining the same 2-3 pounds, and making no headway down below the 120s. I know why...I go over my calories a lot, and while I still work out regularly, I am not as committed to it these days. I walk every day with the litt... Read more

I've been thinking a lot lately about how important it is to be organized, not only at work or with bills, but actually as it applies to weight loss and healthy living, too. Obviously, if I don't plan when I am going to work out during the week,... Read more

My muscles have forgotten...

Saturday, July 24, 2010      2 comments

Ever since I had my baby, I have been neglecting the strength training aspect of my fitness routine. I'm not sure why, but all I do is cardio. So of course, my muscles don't know what the heck they're doing anymore. So yesterday I went t... Read more

OMG I am SO sore! I think I really overdid it on Monday. First I went to Body Pump class at noon. I used to go to Body Pump all the time, but I haven't been in probably about a year. It just doesn't seem to fit into my schedule but I have been m... Read more

Losing some steam

I feel like I am losing steam with my healthy lifestyle right now. Thankfully, it is always on my mind. I read my Spark e-mails and my Jillian Michaels daily e-newsletters. I think about the gym. I do my best to prepare healthy-ish meals at hom... Read more

This week my diet has been a wreck! By "diet" I just mean my food intake, not diet as in "I'm on a diet." I am never on a diet. Speaking of... a few weeks ago, I went to get my nails done and the ladies there asked me if I was on a diet. I sa... Read more
