Thursday, May 13, 2010      1 comments

This morning I got Jackie Warner's Power Circuit Training Workout from Comcast On Demand. If you know Jackie from her Bravo TV series "Workout", you know that she is in great shape and she is all business. You need a set of weights and a mat for... Read more
Positive Reinforcement

I am wearing kind of a slinky black wrap dress today. It's one of the few things left in my closet that fits. I really need to go shopping for new pants. In any event, I've gotten lots of compliments. Nothing better to keep you on track than som... Read more
Nola Jazz Fest Report
Wednesday, May 05, 2010      2 comments

My trip to New Orleans didn't have a huge impact fortunately. I gained a pound and half. I'm sure I'll lose it quickly. My husband and I did split most of the dishes we sampled at Jazz Fest. I seem to have lost my taste for greasy food. Most of ... Read more
Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail
Thursday, April 29, 2010      2 comments

I am going to New Orleans for the weekend. I've started mentally preparing myself. Everyone keeps telling me about the food: that it's amazing, that the portions are enormous, that I have to try this and that and this, etc. So, I've been thinkin... Read more
Milestones and New Clothes!
Wednesday, April 28, 2010      1 comments

My BMI is back under 25. Although I know the whole BMI thing is a little suspect, it will make my doctor happy and was a nice little intermediate goal to hit. The thing that was more exciting though, was shopping for some new clothes for my upco... Read more
Establishing good habits
Thursday, April 22, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday, a co-worker asked me how I managed to wake up at 5am almost every day to workout. I had to think about it. It was really hard at first. I hit snooze and bailed a lot. But now it's a habit and feels close to automatic. It's also born o... Read more
Saddlebags are for Bikes not Thighs!
Wednesday, April 21, 2010      4 comments

The part of my body that has always bothered me the most is my saddlebags. Genetic predisposition, short legs, better to store fat there, blah, blah, blah. It's my saddlebags that keep me from taking up cycling. My husband started cycling about ... Read more
Free Continental Breakfast! or I Should Have Known Better
Saturday, April 17, 2010      2 comments

DH and I went to a workshop on retirement planning today. Not a bad way to spend a rainy Saturday. The flyer said continental breakfast and lunch included. I debated whether or not to eat before going but I figured I would give them the benefit ... Read more
Cheap Food or You Are What You Eat
Friday, April 16, 2010      3 comments

I was thinking the other day about how I ended up overweight. My parents were frugal people. For the most part, I'm very grateful for that. After all, they put me through four years of college at a private liberal arts school and they really wer... Read more
Whole Foods or Calorie Counting Made Easy
Thursday, April 15, 2010      2 comments

I haven't been counting calories for a while. I haven't been counting calories and I've been losing weight. My "diet" plan involves eating whole foods, not processed foods, and avoiding white flour, white rice, and artificial ingredients. It's b... Read more
Dining Out Strategies or Why I Love the Internet
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      1 comments

On Sunday, we'll be going to the Sox game with a big group of friends and then to a pre-Marathon dinner at an Italian restaurant chain (I'm not running!). The game is after lunch so I plan to just have some peanuts as a snack - and a beer or tw... Read more
On the Ball
Wednesday, April 14, 2010      1 comments

I did a DVD workout this morning. I ordered a fitness ball from Gaiam and it came with two DVDs. One of the them was really dated. I watched for about 5 minutes and couldn't take it anymore. It was very new-agey. I think the instructor was weari... Read more
Sparked!
Tuesday, April 13, 2010      3 comments

I decided to join up with SparkPeople to get some motivation to lose these last fifteen pounds. I've lost about thirty pounds over the past year and a quarter but I don't wait to get lazy and complacent. This year, something finally clicked in m... Read more
