DTP Week 1 done!
Well, I lived through the first week of the DTP program. There were a few times when I could have gone a little heavier in my weights, but I didn't know. Better safe than sorry. This week, I will adust accordingly. Of course, my whole body h... Read more
Tomorrow is only a day away...
and I am a bit apprehensive. Not only do I have my profile done, which will tell me what I accomplished with last month's cut program but also give me a starting point for the next program I am doing, but it is also my first day on the new prog... Read more
Apples and Oranges
My last profile was 10/24, three days into this three week program. On 10/24, according to their profile, I weighed 150.0lbs. Today, before my workout, I weighed in at 144.6. After my workout, it read 143.2. Apples to oranges comparison, I kn... Read more
Taking Stock (as posted to my FB group page)
Okay, time to take stock. I apologize if this is a bit long. First of all, I have yet to do what I "said" I was going to do and I haven't hung my goals in the kitchen or my gym. Naughty! That will be taken care of post haste. In realizing that, ... Read more
Profile for May
Apparently, I didn't log last month's profile, so I have no way to compare this one to that last one, but I did find the one I had done on this very day last year and have learned that I am actually 1lb less than I was then. This makes me feel ... Read more
Keeping myself honest
The past few days have been a mess. I was down in weight a few days ago, but let Friday and Saturday throw me for a loop and now my scale is back up there. I realize that it is not "real" and that I can get it right back off, but it just makes... Read more

Use it or Lose it! :(
Oh my word, it is so discouraging to see how much ground can be lost in such a short amount of time. My last real run was June 20th. My last real Crossfit or strength workout of any sort was in July. Now that I have been "cleared" to start ex... Read more
Week end recap and future plans... (long)
Oh, I really don't know what to think of this past week. I can't even remember how my workouts went and I don't think I logged too much of them. I don't know why; not even my WODs. I can say that I did well (what I consider well) with my diet... Read more
Turtles are okay, I guess... (Profile done and diet changes)
Or maybe not, as it all depends on me and my effort! If I hadn't "washed" the whole month of April away, this profile would probably have been a bit better. It is what it is though...and that is still progress.
Weight: 144.5 (the same)

WODs, weighing myself, micromanaging my menu
Okay, I haven't got myself back into this very well yet, but I figured I would get a blog done and get some stuff down in writing.
I have started to try something different with my diet. I am now taking two consecutive days per week and ... Read more
Filthy Fifties, weak 2 mile ladder and those pesky 2 pounds
I have yet to go back and look at the format I was using for my blogs before. I think I preferred it though, so I will be going back to it. It kept everything more uniform and made stuff easier to find, so far as I remember.
Today wasn't ... Read more
Not blogging, logging OR losing!
While I actually didn't like sitting down every night and writing up a blog or sitting down every day and logging all of my food and workouts, I now remember why I HAVE TO DO SO! My weight was fluctuating by two pounds. Now, it has decided to ... Read more
4/5 - 2hrs of sleep / fighting kids / TOM / Pizza and other BAD choices
There really is no need to say any more about this day. It was HORRIBLE in many ways. Thankfully, it was only 24 hours long...... Read more
No WOD, Pure Cardio, 12lbs gone! (13)
Sleep: I only got about 5 hours today. It seems that everything was waking me up, including the wild dreams I was having! I don't know how I will fare later as a result. Part of what I hate about not getting enough sleep is how it affects the... Read more
