A gift of a day.

What a gift today is. The sun is shining, the temperatures are decent, and I had a chance to do one of my favorite things - cross-country skiing! emoticonRead more

Gotta get up when you fall down!

Sunday, January 30, 2011      6 comments

Yesterday, I had plans to take yoga from one of my favorite instructors. I got up early, did some chores around the house, got a sugar-free chai- yum), and went to get my hair cut (also a favorite activity). As I was leaving my hairdresser... Read more

This past year has had some wins and some challenges. In October, and inspite of my constant knee issues, I ran the 10k that I set for a goal. emoticonRead more

Turning a corner

Monday, July 26, 2010      4 comments

Little by little I'm changing. Not in ways that most people would notice, but in ways that I notice. I'm running once a week, increasing my distance bit by bit. I'm keeping up with spin at least once/week. Going to the gym 1-2 times/week. ... Read more

Sabotage! How to reverse this feeling?

Sunday, June 27, 2010      2 comments

Why does it happen? Days and days of being focused on fitness (ran another mile on the treadmill and have been doing some heavy garden work), drinking my water, writing my food down, feeling in control...then SABOTAGE! I hate it. I was feelin... Read more

I know it's only Wednesday, but....

I feel so much more in control from just having logged all that I've had to eat the last three days. Amazing! I know it works. I just don't know why I resist it so...probably because I find it hard to be consistent. It feels so good to r... Read more

Reality check needed -

Monday, June 14, 2010      2 comments

S0, I've been focusing on fitness for the last month. I've been keeping that "can do" attitude out in front. My weight has actually gone up again :-( as I've not been focusing on what goes into my mouth. Yes, I'm back in to a better exerc... Read more

Focus on fitness - focus on the "can do"

Sunday, May 16, 2010      2 comments

It's been a long time since I wrote. In that time, I was heading towards my weight loss and fitness goals. Pain and stress got in the way. My big fitness goal? Run the Tufts 10K for Women in Boston in October. Now, that may not se... Read more

Change is happening ~

Thursday, February 18, 2010      3 comments

OK, so this may not make much sense in the way that things should make sense. But, I wanted to share a positive change with everyone. Last night I was exhausted and went to bed fairly early. My plan - to sleep ALL night and get up at my... Read more

Just returned from time away ~

Tuesday, February 09, 2010      2 comments

Just got back from a fabulous few days in the sunshine with my family. My goals for this get away - to not completely sabotage the work I've been doing. Overall, my food choices were good. I did a ton of walking, though not at the usual aerob... Read more

January re-cap, February goals

Monday, February 01, 2010      2 comments

As I sit here early on February 1st, I wanted to reflect on what positive changes I've made related to my health and fitness. As you may have guess from my status post, the scale is not reflecting these changes. Here are the positives I kn... Read more

Feeling stronger!

Thursday, January 28, 2010      0 comments

So, tonight at the gym I really had a feeling that I was turning a corner. I worked out with a trainer. He pushed me...which is a good thing. But, it also made me realize how much stronger I had become. The scale may not be budging, but I am... Read more

lack of sleep

Thursday, January 21, 2010      3 comments

Prior to starting back with Spark People and putting me first, I had weeks and weeks of lousy sleep. I'd wake up at 2am or 3am at least 3 times/week. Since committing to and completing some sort of exercise etch day, I've not had one night of ... Read more

Today I'm tired. It's been a busy week. I feel like I'm struggling a bit to stay on track. I have managed to fit in the videos from bootcamp, as well as cardio. My eating was not the greatest today...indulged in some chocolate. This is usua... Read more

What a week! Determined to complete every phase of Bootcamp, I set my sights on this week. On Sunday afternoon I was "hit" with a massive cold. Normally, I would have allowed this to derail my plans. But, not this week. I've completed ... Read more
