Yoga X - NOT good for me!
Monday, August 08, 2011      3 comments

I did Yoga X today with an open mind, determined to do the entire thing before passing judgement on whether or not it was worth it. About halfway through, although I was sweating, I started feeling nauseous. I thought maybe I just didn't eat eno... Read more
Started P90X
Saturday, August 06, 2011      4 comments

I bought P90X because a friend of mine is doing it and it sounded like fun. I needed something I can do at home since I have ended up being gone a lot working out and it's nice to do it in my own living room for once. I was a little afraid ... Read more

I have been shopping in the plus size sections and stores for so long that I automatically gravitate toward those places even though I bought several pairs of dress pants in a REGULAR size stored in a size 12 today. I KNOW I've lost a lot of wei... Read more

I have a friend who had a smoothie party so I went. Turns out she has started a business with Herbalife and I was interested in finding out how the products worked and what it was all about. I have always been skeptical about any sort of supplem... Read more
Day Camp Week - derailed again - sort of
Sunday, July 17, 2011      2 comments

This past week I was a 5-day volunteer at Girl Scout Day Camp. We were outside all day, Monday through Friday, and even though it wasn't really hot, it did make a difference in my eating and fluid intake. I drank a lot of water - no soda. I had ... Read more
Doing well this week
Saturday, July 09, 2011      2 comments

Since my trainer suggested I stay at 1800 calories or less I've succeeded 3 days out of 7. The other days I was at 1860, 1900, 2300 and 2100. The highest days were the 3rd and 4th during the holidays, so that made sense. I still have until ... Read more
Goodbye 170's!

I met with my trainer last week and told him how I was struggling with cutting my calories and how when I increased them, I lost some more weight. He suggested I still cut calories now but keep it at 1800 per day, which is 200 less per day. When... Read more

Today I talked to my trainer and he told me my new goal is to be no higher than 1800 calories per day. So I changed my goals to be within those guidelines and found out that I'm not OUT of the obese BMI range and in the overweight range. WOO HOO... Read more
Thoughts for the Day

So this morning we're supposed to be getting new windows. Ken (my husband) went to the store for milk and frozen fruit and came home with 20 donuts! Ugh. Frankly, it was pretty mean since I really have a hard time not eating things that are sitt... Read more
Staying up all night
Saturday, June 25, 2011      5 comments

Last night I did the Relay For Life with my PartyLite friends and was up all night, walking most of the night. I don't really have to tell you all how THAT went with my eating. I needed to keep my energy up so I knew I had to have a couple of sn... Read more

I broke my plateau this week! Lost 3 pounds this week and I'm at the lowest I've been on my Spark journey yet. YAY! I had been adjusting my calories lower after losing about 10 pounds and when I've done that I have been hungry, ate above my adju... Read more
Why I do what I do

I work at a pulmonary doctor's office so we have many patients who are unable to walk even a little way down the hallway. I see it every day and didn't think much about it until today when something happened that made me think. One of our patien... Read more

i've been playing with the same 5 pounds for several weeks now and I'm annoyed. I have had a hard time staying within my calorie range. I do really well for a few days and then not so good. In general, I'm eating REALLY well and I'm proud of tha... Read more
Another Advantage to being Thinner

Yesterday here in Wisconsin, it was 95 degrees outside. I walked outside and was shocked when my car thermostat said that. I didn't FEEL like 95 degrees. I told myself it was because it wasn't that humid so it didn't feel that hot. So today it w... Read more
Good Problem to Have

When I got my black belt it took a bit for the belt to soften up enough so it would stay tied around my waist during class. It had been pretty comfortable but last night and tonight it kept coming untied. It was REALLY annoying me! I couldn't fi... Read more
