What's my goal again?

Saturday, March 05, 2016      1 comments

I started lifting weights again in December and in that I have been successful - every week, I have been showing up. The last few weeks have felt a bit challenging. Ideally, I'd lift weights 2-3 times a week and not just once. Ideally... Read more

Reminded of the importance of rest

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      4 comments

Last week, I was sick for most of the week. I did not get my 10k steps most of the week (or anywhere near them) and I did not lift weights again until Saturday, when the worst of it had passed. So I had six days off. It was impressive that ... Read more

Since December 1st, when I started weight training again and generally being more mindful, active and moderate, I've been plugging away dutifully... managed not to be too excessive over the holidays and kept at it, and I am starting to really se... Read more

pre-work workout

Wednesday, January 06, 2016      5 comments

Morning workouts have always worked well for me. Now more than ever perhaps. I wear compression stockings daily, which aren't 100% compatible with vigorous activity. I am supposed to wear them from the time I get up to when I go to sleep... Read more

Feeling well

Monday, January 04, 2016      1 comments

A few weeks of treating myself better have made a bit of a noticable change - i feel healthier/stronger. It's nice. My brother got a fitbit for xmas and we're doing a challenge this week. It's definitely spurring me on to walk more to keep ... Read more

planning the ways in which I can make 2016 a wonderful year

Saturday, January 02, 2016      1 comments

Off to a good start yesterday with a New Year's day kettlebell workout. That's something I am going to keep doing consistently this year. Regular and frequent activity. Non-negotiable. My health demands it. Creative projects. New place... Read more

Swing time!

Sunday, December 06, 2015      4 comments

Despite a bit of lingering soreness from my first session on Wednesday, I followed through with another kettlebell workout this evening. My return to weight lifting feels official now. 2 arm swings 16kg x 12 clean and press 8kg x 12 l... Read more

Off to a good start, and planning for the week ahead.

I've only been back on SP since Tuesday but it feels like a very good start. I started weight lifting again, which is the closest thing to a magic trick I've ever found in the health n' fitness world. I've been eating reasonably well -... Read more

positive feedback

Thursday, December 03, 2015      2 comments

A benefit of weighing in while at maximum post-holiday-weekend bloat levels is that in just a couple of days my weight has tumbled down several pounds. And even though I know it's not exactly "real" weight loss, it still helps a lot to get that ... Read more

Interrupting a bad habit with a check-in

Wednesday, December 02, 2015      4 comments

My resolve to get back on track with pursuing better fitness has already paid off in a couple very small ways - managed to talk myself out of stopping for take-out yesterday and also talked myself out of a random mid-morning snack I had no real ... Read more

It's time!

Tuesday, December 01, 2015      3 comments

Time to make my health a priority, for real. Time to lose some weight. Time to lift some weights. Time to increase the percentage of vegetables in the fuel supply. I've been cutting myself a lot of slack since the summer of 2014, g... Read more

Happy Monday

Had a great last week or so in the activity department. Yard work (lots), a bike ride, trampolining, and walking. Since last weekend, only one day under 10k steps. Feeling ready for more for today and the week ahead! Need my optimism t... Read more

Faced with adversity, I bought new clothes

Tuesday, April 21, 2015      2 comments

I spend so much time tugging at my compression stockings that I decided a change in wardrobe was warranted. It was either that or wear sweatpants all the time. I went colorful, very much so. Another departure. Two of my new dresses could ev... Read more
