What a difference!
I spent most of the day crabby and out of sorts. Aside from the fact that I believe I'm celebrating PMS week (Again! It's amazing how often PMS shows up, as you get closer to menopause...why didn't anyone warn me about this?) I've also been dea... Read more
Better day today.
So I didn't run this morning, because it was still tooooo darn hot, but I walked 2.5 miles. This afternoon I went to my second Hoopdance class and it was even more fun than the last one!
The friends we had over tonight were my business par... Read more
It's hot and I've been unmotivated and sluglike for most of the day.
Other than taking my boys to the splash park for a little bit this afternoon, I've hardly moved today. I'm trying to tell myself I needed a rest day anyway, but I really ... Read more
Had my first hoopdance class tonight, and OMGosh it was too much fun!
It's so much easier being in a room full of people all learning (and throwing hoops at each other....heh.) than being alone at home trying to figure out moves from videos... Read more
Last night, after my zumba class, I came home, relaxed on the couch, then headed to bed around 10:30, because I needed to be up by 6am to run with my evil trainer/business partner/mostly best friend when he's not forcing me to get up at ungodly ... Read more
First time back to Zumba class in MONTHS! It was so much fun, but man it was WORK! I work out a lot, but that's the first time in a very long time I felt juuuust a little nauseated toward the end of the class. Note to self: Mexican food before ... Read more
Here's another thing I like about Sparkpeople.
On days, like today, when I have VERY little motivation, I still do what I need to do because of Sparkpeople. I log my nutrition, because it's become a habit thanks to Sparkpeople. I still get a little exercise, because I REALLY don't like see... Read more
Another week begins.
The last full week before school starts. I'm kind of looking forward to that, it'll make scheduling clients easier, and cost less in babysitters, but I'm going to miss the time with my boys.
Today was an awesomely laid back day. I got up... Read more
What a sap I am!
I admit it, I'm a big emotional dishrag. I get weepy at everything.
Lately I've noticed that I get really teary-eyed, big lump in the throat sappy when I start reading Sparkpeople blogs. I just looooove reading about the success of other s... Read more
I guess I CAN do it.
Thanks to Sparkpeople, I'm figuring out that it's possible to go out to eat, go to fun places like the zoo, go to networking events, and all kinds of other things, and still make good choices. I'm also learning that if I don't always make the b... Read more
They're not the boss of me!
I get health and fitness related emails from several different sources, and about once a month or more, there's one that says something like "The 10 Worst Foods"or "25 Foods You Should NEVER Eat" and then goes on to describe said foods as "diet ... Read more
I don't think I'm a morning person.
Every once in a while, I get this bright idea that I'm going to get up early to exercise. Today was that day. I enlisted the help of my business partner and best friend, Super Trainer Mike, so I knew it was going to happen whether I liked it or ... Read more
C'mon age...bring it!
I read a conversation between a couple friends today(on facebook) about age. The first friend, who is under 30, was complaining about feeling OLD (can ya believe it?) and the second said "This almost 35 year old thinks you should SHUSH about get... Read more
Thought I'd be more excited about this.
I hit my first goal today.
I still have 34.5lbs to lose to get to my longterm goal, but my first short term goal was to get under 200lbs, and I weighed in at 199.5 this morning. I'm happy about it, don't get me wrong, but I really thought... Read more
No easy answers
I mentioned this on someone else's blog today, and I've thought more about it throughout the day. We(general "we") are always looking for the easiest, fastest solution to things, when sometimes, there just IS no easy answer.
Specifically, we... Read more
