Time travel for the body, sort of :)
This morning, I saw a new recent-low on the scale. I don't weigh in every day, and don't record every time I do weigh, but in terms of what my records show, the last time ... Read more
My current strength routines
I've been asked by some people what I'm doing at the gym, so I'll post this so those who are interested can read it...and those who aren't can ignore it!
I pretty much just started the Build phase of my time with my trainer -- Foundation is... Read more
What have I been doing? Making progress, that's what!
It's been a long time since I made a blog entry here, updated my SparkPeople status, or used most of SparkPeople's other tools. I still think they're useful and believe SparkPeople is a great resource (especially because it's free!) -- I've just... Read more
Course is DONE, and I've still visited the gym!
I last blogged a week ago.
Normally I meet with my trainer Mon-Wed-Fri in August.
This past Friday...I cancelled (gasp!). It was the official last day of my course, and with the amount I had (not) done on my final assignments as of Wed... Read more
Things are getting easier
Minutes of fitness completed since joining the gym: 735.
I just lost another blog entry, and I don't feel like re-typing the whole thing (plus I have homework to do), so this will be short:
Today was "workout 2" again. I was able to fe... Read more
New workout; reaction to criticism [Christian content]

How many gym minutes do you think I should ... Read more
Doing OK today
I am playing Dungeons & Dragons at a friend's house. When I first joined this group about 6 years ago, this group was ordering pizza and eating chips every session. I brought veggies and dip to my first session with them, and they were amazed...... Read more
As useless as JELL-O
(This entry is actually for the previous day...I didn't finish and post it in time :P)
I went to the gym, trained with my trainer, then sat on a bench in the change room for a while trying to get up the strength and energy to pick up my gym... Read more
New goal? Steps record; training; food
Number of fitness minutes tracked since I joined the gym: 532. Today was not a trainer day, but I went in and did 30 minutes on the treadmill plus cooldown.
I forgot to mention something in my very long post yesterday. My trainer had me do ... Read more
Rewards, emotions, patience, motivation
(title edited...my too-long title got cut off before)
So I read an article today (this one: http://www.sparkpeople.com/res

Seven sessions down...110 (gulp) to go!!
Today was the last of the 7 personal training sessions I'd purchased as a "starter package" deal when I first started going to my gym.
I'm enjoying working with a trainer. If I were doing this on my own, I would probably end up sticking to ... Read more
Do it for FUN!
I just read 2 success stories talking about how much more fun life is when you're not burdened by excess weight. That's something good for me to keep in mind...I do love me my fun, and I'd love to have more fun with my family!... Read more
Thinking about goals
The SparkCoach program wanted me to visualize reaching my "ultimate fitness goal" today, and to dream big. This is hard for me to do. I really don't have any interest in running a marathon or doing any other extreme event like that. I just want ... Read more
Lost my entry...oh well
Well, I had a long entry written here, but I got an error message when I tried to post it and now it's gone.
- avoided having a migraine a couple of days by being really hydrated
- I've worked out with my trainer 3 times now... Read more

Made a fresh start - by calling in reinforcements.
Ok, I was having trouble. When I got myself down to my goal weight pre-baby, the motivation seemed to come a lot more easily than it has this time. "Getting around to" workouts this time around, however, was not happening, and eating right has b... Read more
