Day 7?
Friday, April 29, 2016      3 comments

I think today is day 7 of sticking with working out for at least 10 minutes. I've been doing it! Today I did a Jessica Smith twenty-minute walking video. I've been letting my daughter pick the videos lately. So far, so good!... Read more
Day 3
Monday, April 25, 2016      0 comments

I've worked out for at least ten minutes a day, for three days now. Yesterday was around 30, today was 20+. Yay! I want to do weight training, but I know that my wrist isn't up for it. That means no push-ups either, so I'll have to figur... Read more

Clothes are getting tighter. It's time for action. But I'm having trouble. I sprained my wrist about two weeks ago and it's not back to normal. I shouldn't do things like pushups and I haven't tried holding weights, but I'm guessing that... Read more
Still trucking

I did another 15-minute JS cardio video today, as well as the post-natal abs video. So that's twice that I've done it in the past few days. I really think starting slowly is the way to go. I'm kind of afraid to go back to weights since that's... Read more
Slow start, but a start!

We've successfully relocated to Virginia, just in time for possibly the biggest snowstorm on record! I gave myself a reprieve around the time of our move--it was high-stress and I'd just thrown my back out. But we're here, we're settled, a... Read more

Ugh, back injuries take forever to bounce back, don't they? I'm much better today than the last few days, but it is slow going. And I know, it needs to be. But I didn't overeat much on Thanksgiving, I wasn't planning on being couch-bound and ... Read more
Bad Back
Saturday, November 28, 2015      0 comments

I'm into the second week of the Jessica Smith DVD set, and my husband says I look different. Yay! But yesterday I threw my back out while doing the video. I did think to myself right before it happened, "I think my form is getting sloppy.... Read more
Day 3 Jessica Smith
Thursday, November 19, 2015      4 comments

I just did the suggested workout for day 3 of Jessica Smith's The Ultimate Workouts for Weight Loss: 4-DVD Collection. Eh. (Part of my apathy might be that I don't like working out late in the day, but logistics dictate that I have to for now.... Read more
Day 2 with DVDs
Wednesday, November 18, 2015      3 comments

I'm still unimpressed. I don't know what it is about these videos that is so different than her YouTube channel, but I just don't like the four video sections I've done so far. Don't get me wrong, my abs are sore from yesterday and I fee... Read more
New DVDs
Tuesday, November 17, 2015      1 comments

I bought Jessica Smith's The Ultimate Workouts for Weight Loss DVDs and they arrived today. I'll be honest, I didn't love the first day's workout! Jessica Smith usually gives really good cues, giving you notice when a move is about to chan... Read more

Friday the 13th! I just did two Jessica Smith videos, abs, and cardio. Short ones, but it felt good. I ordered one of her DVD sets yesterday and I'm looking forward to it. I still don't generally have time to work out in the mornings now... Read more
Doing my best
Wednesday, November 11, 2015      1 comments

...which is all I can do. Today, it was walking the dog in the 20 minutes I have between dropping off DD and DH, and before I have to head to work myself. I walked him yesterday in this time, too. The day before that, my husband and I did... Read more
Walking like crazy
Saturday, November 07, 2015      4 comments

On Thursday, I came to Baltimore and met up with my husband, and we came down to DC together to find an apartment for next year. (We did!) But of course, Thursday morning my flight out was delayed, so I did a lot of walking in the first airpo... Read more

I did get a workout in the morning, victory! I have a million other things to do, but on my quick stop back at the house between dropping DD off at daycare and on to work myself, I'm just sitting down with some coffee and taking a breath. ... Read more
