I went to the podiatrist yesterday. Here's what she said.
1) Have your internist check out the pain in your knees, I have no clue what it is.
2) Absolutely no treadmill or in home walking tapes. You can bike, swim or do the elliptica... Read more
These stand for "Bible, Iron, Desk Zone" . If I would just spend 15 minutes every day on each of these things I would feel better. I'm sure my stress level would go down and I could enjoy free time without guilt. If I'm incorporating Spark Pe... Read more

I'm trying to think about my life and decide what might cause my emotional eating. I KNOW that I eat when I'm bored, and when I'm procrastinating. I PROBABLY eat after stressful situations such as losing my temper with the kids over homework... Read more
Looks like it's time for another cardio shake up. I made it a month with the last routine, and I've stalled again with weight loss ( or I could be eating too much ha ha) I began to feel like I wanted to walk faster, but instead, I increased the... Read more
