Not giving up

Monday, December 08, 2014      9 comments

I've accepted that there are factors I haven't addressed in my life which make me less likely to stay on track and complete my goals on time. Case in point, P90x. I made it all the way to day 9 and then BOOM, cold, BOOM, off the wagon. ... Read more

Full disclosure, I took Friday off (I was supposed to do stretching) because I went to the gym, had a great run, but then started to feel sick, as though I had a cold Read more

Today, Day 6 of my 12 Day P90x intro journey, was kenpo. This was my favorite workout so far. It was fast paced but not as jarring as some kickboxing dvds I've done. I had to skip the "X" treme jumps...I'm not sure what you'd call them, but I go... Read more

My number one rule for depression

Wednesday, October 08, 2014      4 comments

Finished day 5 of P90x today (legs and back) and it wasn't as treacherous as yesterday. I modified less stuff but kept my reps lower way, way lower than everyone on the tape. The squats are very hard and I have to be careful because of my knees.... Read more

I will not quit on myself. I am WORTHY. I WILL finish.

Day 4 (today) was yoga. I had a day where I was pulled in a million directions at work, I got kind of "down" about a few things. As much as I used to love yoga, I have been dreading this P90x workout. I made it through the disc. With breaks... Read more

Finished my 3rd P-90x with all the modifications today. Let me say that I seriously, seriously contemplated not doing it. I mean, I made my cup of decaf coffee, thought about finishing a movie I started last night. Then I remembered that I... Read more

Saturday, October 04, 2014      2 comments

Whew! I've been doing really well the last two weeks with exercising. My biggest update since July is that I started taking a med that made me balloon up to 130 lbs (I honestly stopped getting on the scale because I didn't want to see the number... Read more

Screamin' and a cryin' don't change nothin'

Saturday, July 19, 2014      6 comments

You know when you're already stressed out and then something "big" happens--like, let's say you lose your debit card when you're out of cash and almost out of gas in an unfamiliar area--and all of a sudden, the day that you THOUGHT you were sail... Read more

Developing a passion takes work

Sunday, July 13, 2014      4 comments

I love 5ks 10ks halfs, etc., but I'm looking for some lower-cost options that will get me outdoors. Running races is addictive, but I think I may look for ONE marathon in winter 2014/2015 and have that be my race for the year. What else is out t... Read more

Trying not to fight it

Thursday, July 10, 2014      5 comments

One of the challenges I've faced recently is coping with a number of significant changes (like multiple moves, both job and house, end of a l/t relationship, financial stress, etc), and it is REALLY hard to stay consistent with health and wellne... Read more

Motivational Ellen D. for the 4th

Friday, July 04, 2014      3 comments

I'm back. I've been maintaining my weight and eating generally well since my absence, but consistency is a real problem for me. I feel "goal-less," and although I am a healthy weight, I've lost a lot of my tone and focus on other aspects of lead... Read more

Restart going well, marathon signed up for!

Sunday, March 16, 2014      3 comments

Even though I haven't been on spark, I've been doing really well with re-establishing a routine and getting back to the gym. I've done it slowly. I literally have about 5-7 lbs left to reach my goal weight, which is AMAZING. Ever since starting ... Read more

I have a lot of changes happening in my professional life, and while they are good ones, they are stressful. It's been months since I've been sparking, and I need some suggestions about how to restart my program. Any advice is welcome. I have be... Read more
