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

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

I got up early and did my workout, as usual... pushed myself, even though every part of my body was screaming "GO BACK TO BED." Not sure why I'm dragging so much. Could be lack of sleep/restless sleep: "Sweeney Todd" was on TCM last night... Read more

I woke up this morning feeling pretty energized, so I really pushed myself; it's a strength training day, mostly upper body. I upped my weights, and really burned it up! I also added dumbbells to my squats and lunges - BIG DIFFERENCE. ... Read more

That's the way I felt today, anyway. Went to bed later than I wanted to, so I woke up later than I wanted to. Got an hour (!!!) of ballet/barre done, flew into the shower, got ready and out the door on time... Only to sit in a long traffic ... Read more

This morning, getting out of bed to do the workout was a real struggle. It's a grey, dark, foggy, rainy morning, and the last thing I wanted to do was leave my cozy Andrew and all our fuzzy kitties to get up and face the cold air, the power yog... Read more
