H2O kickboxing and Tai Chi

Wednesday, November 24, 2010      4 comments

Last night I went with a friend to her gym and took a fun and new-to-me fitness class - water kickboxing and water Tai Chi. Since it was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, there were only four of us. Usually the class is a lot busier, she told m... Read more

Nibbling at the Cooking Show

Monday, November 15, 2010      5 comments

Happy Monday, SparkPeople! I hope all of you had a nice weekend! I am planning 2 visits to the gym today. I did not go all weekend, so I want to make up some time. :) I have no idea how many calories I consumed yesterday. Dinner was aroun... Read more

Why do I get lazy in the afternoon?

Friday, November 05, 2010      11 comments

I've realized something about myself. I am a morning exerciser and if I miss a morning workout I lose my groove. I tell myself I will work out later, but about 70 percent of the time I don't. I want to figure out why that is and change it. ... Read more

Quiet morning to myself & felt like blogging...

Happy Halloween everyone! For the first time in my Halloween life, I will not be giving out candy to the trick-or-treaters. I had intended to buy candy, but last week I was at Kohl's and they had these cute little play-doh packages for Hal... Read more

Haven't blogged in a while

Tuesday, October 19, 2010      6 comments

Last week I sort of took another "break" from Spark and exercise. I still logged in and tracked my food somewhat but I didn't blog or spend too much time here, and I only made it to the gym one day. Read more

Hurray! We are keeping the gym!

Friday, October 01, 2010      8 comments

We worked it out to keep our membership by taking advantage of a promotion they were offering that gives us the rest of the year free. That will give us a little wiggle room with our expenses for the next three months. We also found out that we... Read more

Body fat percentage...blah...

Wednesday, September 29, 2010      5 comments

The other day, on a whim, I asked one of the personal trainers at my gym to test my body fat percentage. After stepping on the scale (their scale weighed me in 2 pounds higher) I held onto a little device for a few seconds that zaps some sort of... Read more

How to tame a wicked sweet tooth

Friday, September 24, 2010      7 comments

Well, I don't really have the answer to that. I wish I could find the answer, bottle it up and sell it. :) All I know is that I struggle with it pretty much every day. The craving for something sweet usually strikes mid-afternoon and again in th... Read more

Scale teaser, food boredom

Thursday, September 23, 2010      5 comments

So the scale has been teasing me. One day last week I got on the scale (after breakfast, even) and it said 119. I moved it to another spot and stepped on it again. And then moved it to another spot. Just to make sure. It still read 119. I did a ... Read more

Checked out a new gym, but pros and cons abound

Tuesday, September 14, 2010      8 comments

So yesterday, hoping to find a solution to my gym dilemma, I went to tour another gym in the area. This one is also walking distance and even a little closer to my house. It is a "community gym" (read "smaller") but the machines have a great vi... Read more

I might have to quit the gym :(

Monday, September 13, 2010      9 comments

DH and I had a discussion over the weekend and the gym is getting to be too much of an expense. He suggested that we stop our membership (we are no longer in a contract and are paying month to month). I know it needs to be done. With me not work... Read more

This and that...

Thursday, September 09, 2010      4 comments

I realize I haven't blogged much lately. The little one finally went to sleep, so I am stealing some time to blog (while I should be cleaning, haha). Blogging here helps me stay on track and most importantly, stay motivated. While healthier... Read more

Hi Sparkfriends! I recently entered Laila's photo in the Gerber Generation photo contest for a chance to win a scholarship for her. The voting for her group started yesterday and she needs all the votes she can get. If you would like to and ge... Read more

H2O High Intensity Training

Thursday, August 19, 2010      5 comments

Tonight I am trying something new. I'm going to take a High Intensity Training water aerobics class with a friend. She used to belong to the gym I attend but now goes to another one in the area. My gym has some sort of partnership with her gym (... Read more

Another new workout class last night

Wednesday, August 18, 2010      3 comments

...but it was "meh." It was called Total Core, described as "a fusion of yoga, pilates and strength training. Based on Pilates and Yoga." I did not see much difference in this class from straight-up yoga, other than booming music that was n... Read more
