Long may it last!
Did the Phase 1 strength training this morning with the new hand weights - WOW what a difference! I feel really worked out. :)
Want to do some bellydance drills later, but this is a good start to today.

There's something to be said for making an investment in things that will help you get closer to your goals. Whether it's quality (i.e., non-fad) equipme... Read more

1) Hand weights;
2) Fancy scale that measures body fat percentage and water retention;
3) Pump for the fitness ball my... Read more
But the poopy thing is that when you eat stuff that doesn't have a label... it's hard to log.
Anyway - I had a nice salad (mixed greens, roasted red peppers, not too much fresh mozzarella, grilled eggplant, grape tomatoes, and bal... Read more
I find that I do much better at sticking with my plan by logging breakfast, lunch and snack first thing in the morning.
That way, when something tempting comes up, I say to myself, "Nope, it's not on my plan, I didn't log it, I can't have i... Read more

Interestingly enough, I am down a dress size.
I don't buy a lot of dresses, mostly because I spend my weekdays in my work wardrobe and my weekends in my jeans and a t-shirt.

The cafeteria downstairs does bean burritos now!
And although it means I have to be wary of extras (sour cream... cheese... guacamole... oy), one of the things that they do REALLY well down there is fresh salsa. It's so, so, SO good- and h... Read more
But getting it back on track. :)
You know, that's one of the greatest things about the human body: its ability to adapt. It's always ready to change when we are.

This evening, some of my co-workers and I are going to go St. Elizabeth's to learn oldies line dancing... ha!
(If you don't know what that is, think about the dancing you saw in movies like "Hairspray" and "Grease.")
I'm sure it won'... Read more
...but I know I can do better.
Problem lately is timing. Andrew's schedule and my schedule are not lining up, and the time when I most want to exercise - right after work - is not working out because I have to come home and deal with the d... Read more
Plan for today:
1) Keep to calorie count today. Doing pretty well so far - planning ahead is a beautiful thing.
