Some favorite tools... and a challenging food day...
Tuesday, May 20, 2008      1 comments

I was in a training all day and they fed us, which can be a real mixed bag. The snacks were fine: fruit, granola, yogurt... and plenty of water to drink. Lunch was almost my perfect food nightmare... the only thing that would have been wor... Read more

Today is a good day! I have managed to exercise for 39 days in a row. And today I broke the 170 barrier, but 0.2 lbs, but I claim my 169.8 pounds since I know I have earned it. I had another magnificent salad at lunchtime that has left me... Read more
You'd think I'd burn out on salads!!

I eat a salad nearly everyday. Even last night, I had a taco salad with fat free refried beans and cheese salsa as dressing. I love what you can do with a salad and how much goodness you can pack into one. They are so versatile. I genera... Read more

Without exercise this week I would be crazy, and trying to fit it all in yesterday and today is crazy too... Miss M (my 16 yo daughter) has dropped bombshell after bombshell on us since Sunday. First there was the sneaking in at 4:00 am wi... Read more

I weighed in yesterday and hadn't lost from the previous week. So I remain 172.4. I've been so lucky so far, this is like "harumph". But I have to look at the success, amazing really, that I have had. Additionally, I have to look a... Read more

I am feeling so amazing lately... and can tell in so many ways how good this whole change has been for me. Things just don't stress me out in the same way that they used to. I have become downright mellow. My daughter stayed out too late ... Read more

Yesterday was day 28/5. I can't believe that I've actually exercised 28 days straight. I've managed to do all the Bootcamp challenges too. The challenges are a real motivation. My husband joined yesterday too. He's aravine. He's very c... Read more

Today was a challenge since I was in a training on my butt all day. And we had no fruit in the house for me to take... so I took carrots and some Kashi crackers, but those were gone by lunch. I managed to chew gum and drink water all afternoon... Read more

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

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
