9-10-11: Once in a lifetime!
On this once in a lifetime date, 9-10-11, I remember tomorrow's 10 year anniversary of the attacks on the World Trade Center; connecting me with a country that recalls, as I do, where they were.
I know you remember where you were on that d... Read more
When I started the Spring into Shape boot camp I would exercise for 30 minutes a day and be winded just after 15 minutes. I was so out of shape! For the past week while using the treadmill, stationary bike and elliptical and have wanted to jus... Read more
A new challenge!
I weighed in today and am actually starting to lose weight again. More impressing to me is that I could actually stay on the elliptical longer than before. This new start is challenging me to push my body past where my mind thinks it can go.

Doing the Spring into Shape bootcamp
Day 2 is done for me, but ooh wee to how out of shape I am. I was out of breath at 18 mins. I'm going to still charge on through this, though. I'm proud that I kept going to 30 mins.
Change in shift will assist with me being able to ex... Read more
Mrs. Newlywed No More
So what does it all mean not to be considered a Newlywed anymore.
Well for me, I waited 2 years before I started exercising again. In fact, I just started today. It felt good to do something for me once again. Felt bad to realize just ... Read more
When tragic events give life lessons
I've been listening to and watching many Michael Jackson videos and songs for many days since we heard about his death. I think it is sad though that we don't let people know the impact they've had on the world (or on us) until they have passed.... Read more
Oh yeah, I ate that...
I used to be on Spark People a great deal, and was keeping up with exercising and what I ate. Then I let my parents know that I was going to get married in two weeks. That was back in March when I weighed 158 and was on my way toward my goal w... Read more
Stay out of the kitchen...
I think that I have realized in this time of "lack of work" at work, that it is best for me to stay out of the kitchen during the day. I remember that I read an article or heard a report that it is best to clean up the kitchen and turn off the ... Read more
Just thinking aloud here...
I'm into this now; completely heard over heals, submerged in all that is active, physical and healthy. I literally measure and look at all of the calories of the foods I'm eating, even if I don't get a chance to log it in. I'm still concsious ... Read more
I've been using Oxygen magazine as a source as of late. I have to admit I find it to be rather informative. They talk about clean eating and a lot about adding strength training into one's workout. I've been a little down today because I look... Read more
Away too long...
Okay, so I totally over ate today and when I was finished I felt really bad. Like I had forgotten that I was doing this for me. Part of the problem is that I've just been away too long. I marvel at where I was and wish to be there again and f... Read more
Kind of proud...
After working a 10 hour day I actually came home and did HIIT on the treadmill. Daunting? Definitely! Worth it! Yeah buddy! Pretty proud of myself, and that feels even better.

My saving grace...
Surprise, surprise! I just found out yesterday that I am down to 163.2 and was elated... With all that overtime I had to work I felt so bad about not getting to work out because I was so exhausted. But low and behold, it may just have been my... Read more
Taking a toll...
I am surprised I even know my first name working 60 hours a week. I haven't been keeping physical track of what I've been eating. However, I have been keeping mental track which basically means I'm eating too much.
As I mentioned earlier ... Read more
What's mandatory overtime, anyway???
So I started this new job, which I love! There is just one thing that I haven't gotten used to. ADJUSTING! They just recently announced that because of the particular industry and the season we are approaching that we all will have to work ma... Read more
