Off the wagon
Thursday, October 18, 2007      3 comments

I've fallen completely off my self-improvement wagon. This is the first time I've actually written anything here since August. I could come up with all sorts of excuses, but the truth is I got tired. Tired of working so hard and seeing so litt... Read more
A few more steps

Before I know it I'll have a streak going. :) I got up this morning and did my video and even did 10 minutes of stretching. I had fruit for breakfast and salad for lunch and am planning shrimp primavera for dinner. I may try to take my da... Read more
Baby steps
Saturday, August 25, 2007      1 comments

I've taken a few baby steps in the right direction. I've drunk my water the last couple of days. Today I walked the dog with my daughter. It was only 15 minutes, but it's more activity than I've done in the last 2 weeks. I also did 10 minut... Read more

I need a kick in the butt to get going again. I have wanted to work out, but haven't been able to get out of bed in the morning and do it. I haven't been eating fruits and veggies regularly either. I want to do better and feel better when I... Read more
Still struggling
Wednesday, August 15, 2007      0 comments

So I'm having a hard time getting up to exercise. I've been letting that affect the rest of the changes I am trying to make as well. Somehow, I've got it in my head that it has to be all or nothing. I'm either working out, eating well, supportin... Read more
Need to get it together

I don't feel good - about myself or physically. It's amazing the difference I feel when I'm really taking care of myself - working out and attempting to make better food choices. Once I start that downward spiral it's so hard to get out of ... Read more
A few off days
Thursday, August 09, 2007      1 comments

I've had a few days this week where I'm not firing on all cylinders as far as my lifestyle changes are concerned. I'm not sure why, but I've been struggling with my exercise (skipped Tues. & Wed.), struggling with my food (limited fruits/veggies... Read more
In a funk
Monday, August 06, 2007      3 comments

I'm not sure what's going on. I did well up until I got home - worked out, tasted my breakfast, am snack, lunch, and even dinner. Then, for some reason, I wanted something sweet. So I added some sugar to the rest of the rice and ate it. Now I'... Read more
Another fun workout
Friday, August 03, 2007      1 comments

So I did my Latin dance video and today said, "To heck with it". No one was awake in the house so I threw myself into it and really worked to get my heart rate up and have fun. And I did. I'm really enjoying the feeling I get when my heart rat... Read more
Shaking things up
Thursday, August 02, 2007      0 comments

So I went to the gym this morning and walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes. I didn't burn as many calories as I do on the elliptical and my heartrate didn't get up as high, but my legs were burning. I guess it's because it worked different mus... Read more
I feel good!

I worked out to my Denise Austin dvd again and really stepped it up to get my heartrate up. Then I took the dog for a walk. So I have a lot of energy right now and am pretty proud of myself. I had the same problem I've had before, though. I g... Read more
Rambling...thoughts about exercise food spirit
Tuesday, July 31, 2007      0 comments

Well, I went to bed at 9:30 last night and woke up 10 minutes before the alarm. I made it to the gym and got a good workout in. I'm recovering faster even after pushing myself harder. That's a good sign. I'm still struggling with my food. Hono... Read more
Slept in again
Monday, July 30, 2007      1 comments

I need to quit sleeping past 7 on the weekends. It throws me off of my weekday schedule and makes it tough to get up and work out. I can still get some exercise in today, but it's much harder for me to do it later in the day.... Read more
Going to the gym
Saturday, July 28, 2007      1 comments

And on a Saturday, too! Yay me! I'm planning on going back later and taking my 2-yr-old to the pool. It may not be a lot of cardio, but it's activity and should be a lot of fun.... Read more
Having fun
Friday, July 27, 2007      1 comments

So my exercise goal today was to have fun. I did a dance video. I'm not very good - I would even say I'm pretty bad. But, I had a lot of fun. Remembering what I planned to do for exercise this morning made it much easier to get out of bed. Tak... Read more
