Time to re-evaluate
Sunday, November 01, 2009      4 comments

I have decided it is time to re-evaluate my goals and desires for my weight loss. I have been living in my private pity party long enough (a couple weeks and I am sick of it) and have decided to review everything. I took a hard look at myself ... Read more

I am looking for my inspiration to continue on my weight loss journey. Sometimes the task seems so overwhelming. Mentally I know that if you fall off the diet wagon you should just get over it and continue along the path. Emotionally, once I ... Read more

Yep, that has been my diet for the last couple days. I feel like I am on an uphill slope and my weight loss is a gigantic mountain and I keep sliding backwards. I decided to blog about it instead of taking a trip to the vending machine. The ... Read more

I am trying to keep things in perspective. Yesterday both of my girls had their annual physicals and they both showed low frequency hearing loss on the basic test in the doctors office. Both were referred to an audiologist for further testing.... Read more

today is the last day of my 10 day challenge. I am hoping to continue with the added exercise but will need to condense it somehow due to time. I had last week off work so it was easier to find the time. I am back to work now and trying to ke... Read more

Well, yesterday I spent the day hanging out with Brooke (my youngest daughter, 14) at the mall and then we rented 2 DVDs from Redbox. At about 9:30 I realized I had not done my Slim in 6 video. Since the program gives one day off a week I deci... Read more

Completed day 6 and it is finally starting to get a little easier and my legs are not as sore as they were. Also planned dinner for the next 3 days so that should help with my calorie consumption. Gordy (husband) and oldest daughter Morgan... Read more

I was very excited to see a 2 pound loss this am. My challenge has been all about exercise and my eating has not been the best this past week. My husband is still on his hunting trip and he usually does a lot of our cooking so my menu planning... Read more
Day 4 - Done

Well, survived day 4. Harder to find time to fit it in since I worked and then had coferences at the school. I am starting to get the hang of the revese lunges, but I would not recommend doing them after eating a bowl of ice cream. Ice cream ... Read more

I wonder when it will get easier?? My legs were still sore, as were my arms and abs. That is good though. It makes me realize how little I have used some of my muscles lately. Did Slim in 6 & 50 minutes on treadmill. It was snowing & i... Read more
Day 2 - Done

Day 2 of the slim workout was tough. My legs were already sore from day 1 :) but I completed it. Used my workout ball to balance on the squats so I could achieve the correct form. Walked for 50 minutes on the treadmill since we had snow and t... Read more

Completed my first day! I found out I am not in very good shape for anything but walking. The Slim in 6 video is full of squats, lunges, and plies(along with my stairs for the stair challenge) which combined to make my thighs burn while doing ... Read more
