I feel like I'm getting really burned out at work... feeling like I may need to take a day soon just so I can catch my breath. My friend, Mary, thinks everyone's burning out because we haven't had any respectable snowstorms and, thus, no snow d... Read more
Itís funnyÖ I spent a long time mentally building myself up so that I could get up and do my workout this morning. Today is the day where I'm supposed the next phase of the Power 90 workout series, and I was intimidated by it. Even though I wa... Read more
So I had to really mentally work myself up to getting up and starting the new phase...
...but you know what? It wasn't so bad. You know why? The first disc, if you do it right and slowly build up your endurance and learn good form, WILL... Read more
Okay, I admit, I don't understand this. I saw a brief blurb on something in connection with Dr. Oz - a commercial for an "intervention" of some sort involving him and several women who were very comfortable with their bodies yet clinically morb... Read more
So I did my one-hour barre/ballet workout this morning (whew!), and I'm all ready to start the second, more challenging part of the P90 series tomorrow.
I watched the videos last night so I could get an idea of what I was in for, and how lo... Read more
First half of the Power 90 series is DONE! Tomorrow's my "wildcard" workout, and then... on to the second disc! Apparently, it's a longer workout - almost a full hour - so I'm going to have to both get to bed earlier and get up earlier in the ... Read more
Nothing like a migraine to knock you on your butt for a whole day.
So I felt crappy when I woke up yesterday, and I was hoping a workout would make me feel better. I did the workout, and felt momentarily okay...
And then CRASH. Migr... Read more
It's hard for me to tell if there's actual progress... I mean, I FEEL great, and although the scale isn't doing much in the way of the numbers, I can feel myself being more toned...
I just don't know.
Anyway, here are some pics. You b... Read more
When I logged in this morning, I received a bunch of SP awards - monthly fitness minutes, etc... but the one I'm most proud of is my "Perfect Attendance" trophy. I hope to accumulate 11 more of those this year. :)
Getting up this morning ... Read more
I do believe my wonderful partner in this life is joining Sparkpeople.
So the scale is not moving, but my body fat is dropping - clocked in at 26% body fat this morning (down from 30%). I guess that body fat scal... Read more
Keep a secret?
[redacted photo of wedding dress because Andrew's joining Sparkpeople! Yeah!!]
I just won it - brand-new, with tags - on eBay, for $61. And it's local, too, so I can go pick it up!
My plan is to embellish it with ... Read more
I'm not going to sit here and bemoan the fact that women physically have it harder than men... that we have to fight so much harder against a body designed to hold onto weight... that we have hormonal fluctuations which turn us into people we do... Read more
According to my calendar, I just finished day 33 of the Power 90 series. This means that soon, I'll be halfway through... which means I'll be switching discs and moving on to the phase 3/4 segments.
I'm kind of glad, in a way, because it'l... Read more
Not much time for bloggy today - have lots of errands to run!
Had extra bonus cardio last night at class in the form of burlesque dance - I LOVE BURLESQUE. It's fun, sexy, and a really intense workout.
OK - got to hit the shower now -... Read more
