So, 3 weeks Post op and I am finally tracking everything I should be tracking :) Rough start out of the gate- Nausea and I were constant companions after surgery. Hence I was not getting all of my liquids & protein in. I went to our 1 mo... Read more
8.5 More Days Until Surgery
Sunday, February 10, 2013      2 comments

I can do this! So far I am 5.5 days into my liquid diet. I haven't been perfect- but I have been pretty close. I am completely sick of sweet stuff- protein drinks, jellow, sugar free Popsicles and the like. The only 'savory' thing I am allow... Read more

It's been a rough past month, however, I think some good has come out of it. I knew on some level that I ate at night, but I just chalked it up to boredom. After really looking into my eating patterns this month I realized that boredom may pla... Read more

Very frustrating week. My husband is a contractor and in this horrid economy we are really stressed that he will lose half his pay or his job entirely. It is a family business which makes it all the more stressful. Unfortunately no one is rea... Read more

I found a fabulous recipe to use up bananas, however, on the down side, it was a little too fabulous- I had about 4 of the darn things thereby consuming about 700 calories of the oat granola goodness :(. I should have guessed that this might no... Read more
A Better Week
Monday, July 11, 2011      2 comments

After the nastiness last week, this week seems to be getting off to a much better start. I started out this Sunday with a private dance lesson- because of finances I can't do too many of these, but after the garage sale last weekend I decided t... Read more
Craptastic Week
Friday, July 08, 2011      1 comments

So, I have 12 weeks left before dance camp and I have done practically nothing for the past 2 weeks. The only positive thing I can say is that I have identified triggers and possible reasons for my lapse - perhaps if I can find solutions to the... Read more

I am exhausted! I have been working out quite a bit, but not dancing as much as I would like. I really want to get into better shape, therefore I am doing interval training and walk jogging each day, but that doesn't leave much omph left for d... Read more

Today was not the best food day, I went over on calories, in part because it was a crazy day at work and I had takeout for lunch and dinner. On the plus side, I did adjust my fitness page and my allotted calories jumped up quite a bit. I don't... Read more

I am on my way! This past week has been pretty good. Besides falling off the calories wagon a few times (and not by much) I have kept within my plan and I have been working out constantly. I may need to actually adjust my calorie count since ... Read more
Found a Teacher!
Wednesday, June 08, 2011      1 comments

Yippee!!! I think I may have found a teacher that will work out well for me! She is pretty much Egyptian, but she understands that I prefer Cabaret, and she is really as close as I can get in my area. I am NOT driving 1 hour to take classes, ... Read more
Getting up

Not a great morning. My 3 year old is having a rebellious streak so he was out of bed at 5:30 this morning. I kept having to put him back in his room since I was not about to forgo an extra hour and a half of sleep! Oh, well, I have been want... Read more

So, it being a Sunday I still got up at 5 am and did Jillian Michael's Frontside Interval Training DVD- it was the first time I did it and it wasn't too bad until about 2 hours later :) That's not a bad feeling though. Later on I took Noah... Read more

Well, I have been doing ok- I started out with bad sneakers and immediately developed shin splints (hate those things) but I still have been able to dance some and do workout DVD's. I think they are just about healed- hopefully the new shoes I ... Read more

So, trying a new technique. I am officially enrolled in the Camp Cabaret Belly Dance camp in October. It's do or be really embarrassed because I can't keep up with the 3 day workshop! I have never done anything like this before so I am super ... Read more
