Admiring myself

Tuesday, June 22, 2010      0 comments

So over the last week, I've been consistently doing strength and cardio training on my own. I've stopped obsessing over the number on the scale (I completely give up on it actually) and decided to just keep working at my body and see what happen... Read more

Curves Free-And still ticking

Sunday, June 13, 2010      1 comments

So I haven't been to Curves since I got my disappointing measurements. This hasn't stopped me from doing my own thing and maintaining my strength and cardio training myself. Saturday, I walked 5 kms even though I wasn't feeling 100%. This morn... Read more

Givin' up on Curves

Thursday, June 10, 2010      2 comments

Well, my 30 day promo at Curves is up on Monday. Worked out 5 times a week since then plus the one week free I worked out 4 times that week. Got my measurements done yesterday. I gained 1 lb, all measurements stayed the same except for a mino... Read more

Rough week so far

Wednesday, June 09, 2010      2 comments

Sunday was a 'break' day as usual... no required cardio or strength training, however I did work hard that day clearing out the basement of junk for trash day and then spending hours in the kitchen prepping a week's worth of healthy meals. Mond... Read more

A New Strategy

Saturday, June 05, 2010      0 comments

Thanks to the responses I've been getting on my blog posts, I'm re-evaluating my calorie situation. I ran a report for the last month of calories burned vs. calories eaten. Turns out I may have been working out TOO much, that is, for the amoun... Read more

Curves- Brick Wall

Thursday, June 03, 2010      3 comments

Been going to Curves now since May 8th. Since then I've been there 17 times. That's an average of 5 times a week. My workouts are fairly intense, my heartrate stays within the 80% range and I work up a sweat. No idea how many calories I burn... Read more

Tired of Tracking

Wednesday, June 02, 2010      3 comments

I've been doing this SparkPeople tracking for a little over a month now. Because of it, I've been counting calories/fat/protein like I never have before. I'm consistently staying within my boundaries. A diet of less than 1500 calories a day a... Read more

Is it the weekend yet?

Tuesday, June 01, 2010      0 comments

Mondays are a day of recovery from the weekend, so not much work gets done since you need to kinda ease your way into the week. Tuesday, you start to organize your work for the week, answer emails, and plan for the next day. Wednesday, it's hu... Read more

42,000 steps in 3 days!!!

Monday, May 31, 2010      2 comments

Wow, I knew that I don't sit down much on weekends, but I've kept my pedometer on me non-stop and I've totalled 42,000 steps since Friday! That's crazy! I realize I'm pretty much non-stop on Saturdays. Between walking to and from Curves (4kms)... Read more

Hot summer in May! Mother Nature's sauna.

Wednesday, May 26, 2010      0 comments

Yes, we live in Ontario Canada and despite what Americans think about us, we do have really hot summers. This year it started really early. It's an average of 98 degrees farenheit this week. Hopefully there's some calories being swept away by ... Read more

Weekend's over... time to get back on schedule!

Tuesday, May 25, 2010      0 comments

This was a great long weekend... did lots of outdoors stuff. Walking, gardening, camping, shopping, but how much of it is considered exercise? Curves was closed on Sunday and Monday so I didn't get to do much cardio. It was too nice outside t... Read more

Excellent Saturday

Saturday, May 22, 2010      1 comments

Went shopping in the city today. Got my new workout shoes. They are New Balance and are much more comfortable for my feet type compared to my other workout shoes I've been using. I always thought that if I paid a lot of money for shoes, that ... Read more

Adding to my Fitness Repertoire

Friday, May 21, 2010      2 comments

Shopping is fun, but for the last few years I've HATED shopping for clothes. Nothing ever fits me right so I gave up. Having a small waist and big hips is not an 'ideal' shape for buying pants. Anyway, I did have fun shopping for sportswear o... Read more

Eat to live, or Live to Eat? I want both!

Thursday, May 20, 2010      0 comments

I love food. I didn't always love food. Growing up, I lived in a 'meat and potatoe' family. Our menu consisted of speghetti with homemade sauce, Taco nights, Sheppard's Pie nights, Pork Chops, T-Bone Steak, and sometimes sweet and sour spare ... Read more

A new way to gauge my progress

Wednesday, May 19, 2010      1 comments

My frustration has come to a point where I decided I needed a new way to gauge my progress (if any) other than relying on the wii-fit numbers every morning... which by the way this morning said I lost 1.3 lbs since yesterday (Yah, right!). So, ... Read more
