Friday, Friday, Friday
So I'm feeling blah and have been for the last couple of days. Getting the motivation to do exercise is... really difficult at the moment. A part of me knows, knows, knows that the instant I finish the yoga routine, I'll feel better, but there i... Read more
Fitness Video Review: Power Yoga for Every Body
Those who've visited my blog, know that I generally use yoga as my main means of fitness. As I mentioned yesterday, living in a tiny apartment in NYC, where space was a premium, meant I went for fitness videos that prioritized a small amount of ... Read more
Fitness Video Review: Jillian Michael's 30 Days Shred
As I mentioned yesterday, I have been somewhat frustrated by the fitness videos I have. Some are great, some are okay and some are good but aren't as they were advertised. So, I figured I'd share with Spark People what I think of the ones I buy.... Read more
Weekend wrap up
This weekend was largely an exercise in frustration when it came to eating food. While I didn't make unhealthy food choices, I certainly didn't eat all that I should have. On Sat. I ate my first meal after 2PM; my lunch was a protein shake. Sund... Read more
An okay day
Didn't do cardio but did do 40 min of yoga. Ate out but had sashimi, and edamame.
Goals for tomorrow:

Back to circuit training

Start of new week
- lost two pounds
- can do at least three real push-ups at once. Might be more but because I discovered this by doing a new yoga flow, I am not sure how many I can actually do.
- ate pretty well, but i still have calories to ea... Read more
Today is technically the end of my week since I started on a Wednesday. Today was also a good day, which I am doubly pleased about because I was doing a lot of errands.
After dropping my husband off at work, I came home and made kasha for ... Read more
Protein powder recs?
After almost a month of tracking my nutritional information, I have come to an unfortunate conclusion. Simply put, I have issues with eating enough protein each day. As such, I've decided to give protein shakes a try. As tomorrow is shopping day... Read more
Yoga and lentils, oh my!
I received a query as to which movie I saw yesterday; we saw 'Whitehouse Down.' While it wasn't a classic of cinema, we enjoyed it. It was exactly what was advertised, i.e. lots of action, some quips, decent enough acting, and a solid 'Die Hard'... Read more
My husband and I went to the movies today. I did not have any movie snacks and in fact just walking past the concession stand made me nauseas.
I did not do 30 minutes of yoga but I did manage to do 15. Better than nothing.
Have been ... Read more
Today has been a good day. I have eaten right and did my fitness. I even met all my goals for the day. I titled this entry pushing through in part b/c I am feeling a bit under the weather.
Some positives for the day:
- ate 3 fruits/veggi... Read more
What does Health mean?
This prompt intrigued me. What does health mean to me? Eating healthy and doing some sort of fitness a day definitely fall into that rubric. Eating healthy means eating more fruits and veggies, making my own marinades and rubs and relying less o... Read more
End of week 3
Yes, it is Wednesday, and not Saturday, but my 'week' starts and ends on Wednesday, because that is when I resumed Spark People.
Not surprisingly, given my lack of exercise for most of last week and the issues I had with eat, I did not los... Read more
Keeping at it
So I had an entry, but because I used html, it got erased. I'm not pleased. So this posting will be much shorter and less informative.
Put in a 15 minute power yoga work out. Hoping to do a longer one tomorrow.
