The best thing
Yoga has been the best thing to happen to me in recent years. It's been 8 weeks of 2.5 hours a week, and I feel 10 years younger.
My instructor Jeremy is a real inspiration. He knows how to encourage the class but at the same time, push us... Read more
I feel like I'm finally settling in to a new fitness routine:
Monday: swim, weights, walk.
Tuesday: yoga, walk.
Wednesday: swim, weights walk.
Thursday: yoga, walk.
The flexibi... Read more
So I've been going to the Y several times a week now, mostly to swim, do weights, or yoga. I'm loving the variety of exercise I'm getting with the Y membership. Having all drop-in classes rocks! I've been giving everything a try.
Last nigh... Read more
Did my first ever yoga class tonight: 90 minutes of every muscle screaming, sweat pouring off me. I thought I would give up, but the instructor was great, he suggested modifications for less advanced students, and I managed to make it through. H... Read more
First off, thanks to all of you for being so supportive. I really needed it, and you guys were there for me. You are much appreciated.
Last night I went to my friend T's birthday party, and managed to keep it together: I sampled a little of... Read more
Been struggling to find my stride
Lately I've been finding it really hard to stay on track: bingeing, slacking off. I'm trying to slow things down again, and by that I mean, slow down and think before I do things that are destructive.
I've been out of control the last month... Read more
Checked out the Y
I stopped by the Y for a tour yesterday, and picked up a guest pass.
Today I went in for the evening aquafit class (Mon & Wed evenings), and was shocked by how different it was from my old class. My old instructor was much more relaxed. Thi... Read more
Bye bye Aquafit
I was taking Aquafit in an outdoor pool, and the classes are ending for the season. I'm on the hunt for another location to continue. I may just get a Y membership and use it for the aquafit AND roll in some yoga. I've been wanting to do yoga f... Read more
Another Bad Day
Yesterday was another day of snowballing into bad food habits. I was out and I had a delicious beer which somehow ended up with onion rings and potato chips. Later on we went to our favourite Mexican place and instead of portioning the large pl... Read more
Taking it easy
So after my sister posted about how her knees were doing the same thing as mine, and said stretching the glutes really well can help, I've laid off all of my glute/thigh squat type exercises for the week. I've substituted other exercises. I was... Read more
So what started off as a little treat in celebration of my first weight loss goal, snowballed into a lower level binge. I wasn't as bad as I could have been, but I ate without thinking AND I'm feeling bloated now. Tomorrow would normally be my... Read more
Letting things slide a little
If I'm to be completely honest with myself, I've not been quite as vigilant about what I eat the past couple weeks. And it's not that I can't eat "bad foods", I know I can have them... in moderation. It's just that my moderation hasn't been so... Read more
I weighed myself at 206.8 this morning, and my ticker shows 207. Robbery I say! :P
I woke up at 4:45 by accident and thought it was 5:45 until an hour later when I was prodding my bleary eyed husband to leave for work. I feel silly, but I'... Read more
We just got back from our weekend helping my Sil L and her father-in-law in San Diego. It turned out to be not so much helping (although my husband threw his back out a bit taking a huge console tv to Goodwill) as just being there for support.

off to San Diego this weekend
We're headed to San Diego for the weekend to help my Sil and her step-father. It's her birthday as well, and spending it sorting through your mom's stuff is no way to spend a birthday. Hopefully we can help them by getting rid of some more stuf... Read more
