I have been with Sparkpeople a whole year! Wooooo hoooo!!!
So happy to have found this site and the people who are on this journey with me. Do not for one second underestimate the power of group support! Thanks, folks, for being there to... Read more
Not sure why, but I lately have had a serious hankering for anything and everything having to do with iceberg lettuce. (Disappointing, since iceberg is probably the least nutritious out of the salad greens. Foo.)
This happens to me every ... Read more
Between the dog's fussing and Andrew's snoring all night, I got next to NO sleep. I feel like the walking dead.
In terms of wanting to lose weight, this is not good. There's some evidence that not getting enough sleep makes us more prone ... Read more
So this barre workout SAYS it's only 55 minutes...
But it's really way more than an hour. I completely skipped one section of it!
Even so, I did an hour of it. I feel challenged, lengthened, and stretched. I think I'm going to like ... Read more
I really challenged myself today, kids...
I bought the Xtend Barre Lean Chiseled workout by Andrea Rogers. I'd heard really great things about it and, as a dancer (albeit not a ballerina but more of the hoofer/burlesque variety!), I know ... Read more
Now that I've gotten cardio over with for today (woot!), I have a few things to do:
1) go to stupid bridal show and look at stupid bridal things... which should be really exciting for me, but it isn't. Weddings are fun, and I'm looking for... Read more
I'm really coming to love working out on weekends... it's so nice to get it done and get on with the rest of the day, but moreover, it's nice to not rush - especially on the strength training. I feel like i can really take my time and focus on... Read more
Even despite a crappo night's sleep, I had a little extra "pop" in my cardio today. I pushed myself, and it feels pretty good. :)
Looking forward to getting through today and getting back to bellydance class tonight - I've missed it, and ... Read more
Today, my strength training seemed a little easier... so I'm going to up my weights on Saturday and see what happens.
I'm also caving in to do the Beachbody Delaware Fit Club on Saturday. A co-worker of mine runs it, and although I'm sure ... Read more
I can't believe I'm actually keeping up with this, but the fact that I'm already seeing results is keeping me VERY motivated. It's a good plan - a hard plan! - but effective and efficient. I'd expect anything out of Tony Horton's camp to be no... Read more
A is for ABOVE and BEYOND...Does competition push you?
-Yes!! I like a good challenge. :)
B is for favorite healthy breakfast:
-Better Oats Oatmeal. Delicious!
C is for CHILDREN...you have?
-Nope - can't have 'em, ... Read more
I love to see the numbers on the scale go down, but I sometimes wonder if I'm too reliant on the scale...
So this morning, I took my measurements with my little pink measuring tape. :)
They are 35-27-38. That's roughly between dress ... Read more
Sleep has been very weird lately... but I'm trying to not let my workouts suffer for it.
Today is a rest day for P90, so I did a Pilates workout this morning, and i may do another light workout this evening. "Rest day" does not necessarily... Read more
My brother gave me an Amazon gift card for the holidays this year, and I spent part of it on this:
