Boogied with Richard Simmons again today - with hubby just a few steps away in the kitchen. I was a bit self-conscious at first, but then just got into it. I was able to keep up better and last longer than yesterday. In fact, I did 15 consecutiv... Read more

I got up early to go to the gym this a.m. -- but changed it around when it started to snow. I decided to stay in and down one of the dvd's I recently got - Richard Simmons Boogie Down the pounds (it's disco!). First time on, I was not keep... Read more

Surprising realization to me: I am not just changing on the outside; I am changing on the inside. I am seeing myself differently. The thought of this just stopped in my tracks. I am feeling so much better about myself. I am not feeling sorr... Read more

Snowy forecast might lead to a homebound day --- Hey I am not complaining!!! I may finally break into my Richard Simmons DVD's and start dancing off the pounds. Disco here I come! Shake, shake, shake,...... Read more

It's 4:30, my husband snickered. He'd been up for a while and could hear my alarm being slapped on to snooze again. I still need to tweak my timing for going to bed and getting up to work out, but I am making progress. I was out the door 15 mins... Read more

I did not roll over and go back to sleep when my alarm went off in the 4:30a.m. range. While I do need to tweak my timing for being up and out the door, I was so pleased with myself that I was up and out and riding the bike by 5:15-ish. Woot! ... Read more

Hubby was happy I lost the 3 lbs and volunteered to make a new low-fat recipe that he heard on tv. :) He's on the bandwagon. Woo hoo!... Read more

Just came back from the grocery store. Most of the shopping was for me, and it was easy to buy "the right stuff." I am so much more dedicated to re-gaining (MY LIFE) back and not only ready and willing to overhaul myself --- I am doing it! Re... Read more
Walked Twice
Friday, February 19, 2010      3 comments

Counting 2 fifteen-minute walks for me today. Returned a library book not overdue (strangely enough), and stopped at the bank for a few work supplies. That was really a 10 min walk, followed by a 5 min walk, and then the return trip was 15 mins.... Read more
In my Lunch Bag
Thursday, February 18, 2010      2 comments

When it comes to eating when I am at work, I am much more of a grazer because I rarely leave my desk. In my lunch bag (coincidentally the same one I lit on fire this a.m.), I had the new tools to boost my success: cherry tomatoes, seedless grap... Read more
Dining Out Success

Go me! I ignored the bread, dipped my fork into the salad dressing and ordered extra veggies on the side. I drank unsweetened iced tea and ate a piece of grilled salmon for my entrée. I am 2 days in to paying attention (again) to my life and wh... Read more
