Pre-Logging and Taking the Stairs

Wednesday, November 04, 2009      3 comments

Does anyone else pre-log their food; ie determining what you are going to eat and logging it before you actually eat it? I did this yesterday and it was awesome! I prelogged about 1000 calories and had enough left over to have a few snacks ... Read more

Today is only the beginning...

Tuesday, November 03, 2009      5 comments

Today, I changed my Exercise streak from 30 minutes a week to 90 minutes a week. Even though I've been getting 90 minutes or more a week, it sure felt good to see an eight week streak on exercise. However, my desire to change my streak to a more... Read more

What am I doing wrong?

Monday, November 02, 2009      10 comments

I have been working out for the past seven weeks. I am thrilled with the results. I have very quickly reduced my cellulite and firmed significantly. I think the swimming is the most significant part of this so far and would highly recommend swim... Read more

Harrowing Body Measurements

Sunday, November 01, 2009      0 comments

I just measured my body for the first time in over three years and it was a harrowing process. First the good: 1) At least I know where I am in this process and can now measure my progress in a way that is not tethered to the scale. 2) Appa... Read more

Refraining from Greed

Saturday, October 31, 2009      0 comments

My Running Trouble Goal

Friday, October 30, 2009      2 comments

My biggest running trouble is that I have asthma. I don't have the kind of asthma that makes me prone to sudden attacks. I just have difficulty breathing when I have a cold, allergies or am, you guess it, working out! My goal is to order up a ne... Read more

Why NOT Bother????

Friday, October 30, 2009      6 comments

My week started off tough. I had a huge fight with my mother on Sunday. She and I have never seen eye to eye--never had that typical loving mother-daughter relationship that I have always craved. Sometimes, my anger at her over the harsh realiti... Read more

Change of Pace!

So, I started my couch to Sprint Triathlon program almost a month ago! This has been really fun and exciting so far so I am hesitant to make changes. But I've been modifying my program so much that I think I'm going to take the advice of some se... Read more

Never Say Die!

Wednesday, October 14, 2009      0 comments

Yesterday, disaster struck. I misplaced my tankini top before my swim lesson. I spent over an hour looking for it and still couldn't find it. How could I go to my lesson? All I had were old bikini tops from thinner days. I hated the idea of gett... Read more

Mild Frustration

Wednesday, December 13, 2006      0 comments

Almost finished with Fast Break and having a brilliant time of it. Have learned quite a bit more about food intake and am truly enjoying the exercise. My mild frustration comes from having a scale (really, a few scales)that can't be trusted. I a... Read more

Joy and Pain

Sunday, December 03, 2006      0 comments

My apprehension about moving to Santa Barbara has finally given way to full blown excitement. My future husband and I will be living together, working towards our dreams and soaking up the sun. What could be better? And yet...the stress of figur... Read more
