The First Week is Over
Saturday, April 12, 2014      8 comments

I made it thru the first week of the Spring 5% Challenge with a loss. It was a small loss (-0.6 lbs). I shouldn't be surprised. I was not very consistent with my workouts. I have decided that I need to increase the time or intensity of my wo... Read more

Not THAT kind silly! My body is not quite in shape for that. I have decided to workout for 10 minutes every day and track it. This streak will serve two purposes. This will keep me accountable to my team, Shooting Stars, for the 5% Winter Ch... Read more

It has been roughly two weeks since I really worked out on the elliptical. I worked out yesterday and I could really feel it. I have gotten on it but I really didn't work out. I have read books and watched shows on my Nook so I did slow worko... Read more

Thursday, March 07, 2013      4 comments

But I realize the motivation needs to come from within. The different ideas I was given earlier in the week to help with drinking more water has helped. My water intake has increased, but quite up to 8 cups each day. And realizing that others... Read more

I have bought the powdered drink mixes. There are a lot of flavors out there. There is even one for energy. I fell for it and bought that one. Unfortunately, this wasn't enough to help me today. I was on the road most of today, so I wasn't... Read more

Water, that is. I have never really cared for plain water. Even though I am working out more, I still don't drink water like I should. I bought some of the flavored powder sleeves to use with water when I leave the house. I am also using Cry... Read more
