Thursday, June 11, 2009      5 comments

Lately I have been allowing sweets or treats on the weekends, but in moderation. I realized that restricting my diet too much could lead to overeating later. And it is not exactly realistic. However I track what I eat and count it into my ca... Read more

Thursday, June 04, 2009      2 comments

Lately I have not been as motivated to workout as I have been before. Therefore I am writing down why I am motivated so that I will in turn motivate myself. I think perhaps it is because it has been almost a year since I began Curves. I am ... Read more
Humpty Dumpty sat on a fitness ball...
Wednesday, June 03, 2009      1 comments

I found a fitness ball at a discount store and so I bought it. So far I am using it for push-ups. I want to tone my arms but I can't do regular push ups, and push ups on the knees hurt my knees. So the ball helps remove that problem. I have be... Read more

I had tried Yoga before, a dvd by Denise Austin. I remember disliking it simply because she did many standing exercises. I had problems balancing during these, and kept falling down. So I gave that one up... I found another Yoga tape, differen... Read more

Friday, March 20, 2009      2 comments

I have been thinking about the story about the little old lady who swallowed a fly (it is a kid’s book/poem) and she also swallows a spider, a cat, a dog and eventually a horse. While unrealistic, it definitely applies to eating and weight... Read more

Sunday, February 15, 2009      1 comments

I have been reading the Walk Away the Pounds book by Leslie Sansone. She mentioned about the 100 mile Club (when you reach 100 miles). I think this is a great idea! I am going to start keeping track of the miles I do, and see how long it takes m... Read more
