You know, if I'm lacking motivation around here, it's my own darned fault! I'm doing the Beach Body Bootcamp and that had a relatively simple 10 minute workout (but very good! it got me pumped when I was feeling sleepy this morning). I al... Read more

I have my pic posted for Beach Body Bootcamp... and I have done my 10 minutes of Cardio for day one of that. However, I have a cold or something, I feel fatigued, headachey, sore throated, sinusey and generally *blah*. But the 10 minutes m... Read more

I also added a picture of me in a swimsuit (I really can't believe that!). It's been a month since the previous pic. I'm not where I want to be but I have made progress. Today is infomercial day. The weight loss ones are incredible. The... Read more

The drain still needs fixing, but we have come up with some small steps to make as fast as we can to take care of it... so we will deal with it. I did 2.1 miles on treadmill this morning and I still have to do my strength work. I am really... Read more

Yesterday was Miss M and her passing out at school... today we have backed up wastewater drain that is collapsing in the backyard and no money to fix it. It's snaked out and usable right now... but we need to get it fixed ASAP. One plumbe... Read more

I'm amazed at how my body is changing for the better. This morning my niece played violin in state solo competition and was really amazing. They were running ahead of schedule and so we had to jog/walk REALLY fast and I wasn't even winded.... Read more

Got my hubby back from his business trip last night (yeah!!). Got out and walked at lunch! 2.54 miles at about 4.5 mph, I even jogged 9.25 minutes of the 34 I was out there. That helped me come up with a new goal: jog at least 5 minutes... Read more

I really wasn't sure if I was going to get in decent exercise today but I did. Got 34 minutes of a brisk walk and then breezed in and told the auditors for our bioterrorism contract all the epidemiology projects that I'm working on. (My bo... Read more

Monday, April 21, 2008      0 comments

I'm now just over halfway to goal and it's great. But I am afraid of maintenance. I have been working with the reality that **this** is my life if I want to remain healthy and I'm pretty okay with that. However I started with a strategy t... Read more

Monday morning here at work is my usual weigh-in time (we have scales that are calibrated yearly). I thought I'd prolly have good numbers this morning, but no idea how good as compared to last week. Last week I started @ 179 and dropped to... Read more
