  • Walking Outside Today

    3/30/2015 2:35:51 PM, by 2DETERMINED

    Today I began walking outside during the day time while I am at work. I walked about 2/3 around our largest building.

  • Change of Mind you change your size

    3/30/2015 6:44:50 AM, by JAIYUNNA

    I am learning it's not so much about what you do. It's about what you think about what you did that determines your action. If you overate and you think "well that's it I will go back to eating the way I always have." Now, take the same situation and a another person overate and they said "well, I o... Read more

    3/28/2015 10:45:51 PM, by GIRLGETTINGFIT

    Today has been a great day. I was able to stay within my calorie range and get my strength training in. We went out to dinner with our friends and I did not touch the chips.

    It amazes me how much better I feel after just five days of tracking my food and exercise. My confidence is building back up and I just feel better overall.

  • Pushing Through Today

    3/26/2015 6:40:09 AM, by JAIYUNNA

    Today, I had a very hard time during the work out. I think that 1 pound lost is effecting me. Even though I do see some improvement. That's why I hate it when I weigh myself. It just brings the momentum down. I have to work through it mentally. I know one thing I am not giving up. I will have to go ... Read more

    3/25/2015 3:33:26 PM, by GIRLGETTINGFIT

    Today is day four of being back on track with my food and exercise. I am not sure what gave me the nudge to get back to a healthier lifestyle. It was like a little switch that turned from "I don't care" to "I know I can do this." I had previously lost about 65lbs and after my Uncle and Dad passed... Read more

    Today when I woke up. I was sleepy but soo sleepy that I felt like getting back into the bed. All I was thinking about how good I was going to feel afterwards. I know there is no way to get that until exercise. I know that I have to push myself really hard to get that endorphins. I noticed I won't f... Read more

    3/23/2015 5:15:06 PM, by GIRLGETTINGFIT

  • Time

    3/23/2015 6:58:57 AM, by JAIYUNNA

    The question why do we have to put a time on our exercise? Do your body knows what time it is. I don't think so. Your body just knows when you do certain things it put things in motion. So the only thing we need to be concerned about is doing the things that would take our body to put in motion. In... Read more

    3/23/2015 12:15:22 AM, by ASH_CLEMENT

    I had gone totally underground. No exercise for a month or is it more - I am not sure. I know I should not stay away from exercise for more than 3 days, but that is what I did. I had given up.

  • The Path to Almost Perfect Eggs

    3/22/2015 7:42:17 PM, by SKATER787

    So I've noticed that my steel griddle has hot spots from the gas burners and it would brown the eggs. An ideal egg would be cooked white with no browning and a runny yolk. I got an idea of using aluminum sheets to help distribute the heat. Maybe that would solve the problem. Let's get to work. I got... Read more
