Still trucking

Sunday, January 24, 2016      0 comments

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!

Thursday, January 21, 2016      3 comments

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

I did a workout this morning, while also trying to get lunches packed, eat breakfast, get showered, and get us dressed and out the door. Jane is finishing a show (my only way to get a morning workout in when my husband's away) and I'm recoverin... Read more

I wrote a blog a few days ago but it looks like it never saved. Today I did Jessica Smith's Bodyweight Basics video. Whenever I haven't worked out in a while, I tend to go back to her Fit in 15 playlist, to get back into things. The video... Read more

Day 4-5

Tuesday, October 27, 2015      1 comments

I very well might have to start the count over since I don't want to exercise right now. I mean, I *want* to. But since I can't shower, I don't want to get all sweaty. I did walk in place a bit this morning. ... Read more

Day 3

Sunday, October 25, 2015      0 comments

So here's the problem: We have silt in our well water. We can't drink it or wash with it. So I'm not really wanting to work up a sweat since I can't shower! I did take my dog for a walk just now, but even that got abbreviated because th... Read more
