Today has been hectic.
My dip station came tonight. Found out I can do the pull-ups almost all the way up (at least one), and I can do the leg lifts with pretty much no problems, but I can't do a single dip, lol. Something to work toward I... Read more
To Rest or Not to Rest
Tonight was the first night in a week and a half or so that I wasn't feeling my workout so much. I wanted to go on the run but Bradley sort of didn't, I had to talk him into it. It felt pretty good while we were out there but then when I realize... Read more
Jan 30th - almost a month down!
This has been the healthiest month I've had since last January when I did a vegan diet. But this is better because I've also been exercising, and I only kept to that diet for two weeks. The fewest times I've exercised in a week this month was tw... Read more
From Lazy to Fabulous in 30 minutes
Today when I woke up I intended to do a few things; go on my normal walk with Luna, maybe some yoga, my bootcamp videos... but as the day wore on I found myself getting more and more lazy. Then about an hour ago I realized I just felt icky.

Really Happy Today :)
Today has been the best workout day I've had since starting this over again. I haven't done anything super intense but I did spend quite a bit of time.
All day I was looking forward to coming home so I could do my yoga DVD. I bought it las... Read more
This is MY Journey
Thanks for all the comments people have been leaving on my blog. As I'm sure you can tell, I'm an emotional person. I have up days and down days, sometimes a few of each in a single week. But I am going to work through that. I am taking myself a... Read more
I have so much to learn...
After years of reading tips in fitness magazines and going through various diets, losing a bit of weight and then putting it back on, I thought I knew what I needed to do to get fit. Workout an hour a day, eat fruits and vegetables and whole gra... Read more
This morning I did something I never thought I'd do: I got up before 6am and took my dog on a 30 minute walk. You have to know me to know how much I love sleep, especially in a warm bed beside my husband, and how much I hate waking up on workday... Read more
New Game Plan
After a couple of enlightening posts on the message boards in response to some of my questions, I have decided it is probably drinking so much water throughout the day at work that is suppressing my apatite to the point of under-eating.
I ... Read more
1/10th of a Pound... LoL
I joined a weight loss challenge recently. I think it goes for 6 or 8 weeks. To stay in the running for the title of biggest loser you have to lose or maintain each week. If you gain, you're out (but you can still follow the challenge and get su... Read more
Reposted Link: "An Open Letter to the Fat Girl I Saw at Hot Yoga"
A great blog post I read today. Here is a little excerpt:
"Perhaps I should call you OTHER fat girl at Hot Yoga, as I was there too, easing back into my Fat Down Dog, forward to Fat Plank, then melting and pushing up to Fat Cobra, etc etc, ... Read more
Ready for my week!
The last few days of last week were kind of cruddy. I can't really give a specific reason, I was just not feeling like myself. I was feeling pretty low about the whole diet/exercise thing. I stayed in my calorie ranges everyday except Saturday b... Read more
Goal for next week: more whole foods
Last few days have been pretty tough, mentally. I guess because two weeks is about the time frame my interest in fitness usually starts waining, and the cravings come calling. Also I was PMSing and now today started my period and that is by far ... Read more
Psychological Hangups to Exercise
After talking with my coworker, who is a therapist, yesterday about my story about the marathon disaster when I was younger, she pointed out that the experience might be what had put me off to running. It's odd how we bury things deep in our sub... Read more
