Monday, September 13, 2010      3 comments

I weighed in for the Halloween challenge going on right now to lose 10% body weight in 10 weeks and I was psyched to see that I am just about halfway to my goal in 3 weeks. I am really happy to have found a challenge to help motivate me and kee... Read more
Why do we do it?
Saturday, September 11, 2010      6 comments

I find myself wondering more and more lately, "Why do we poison ourselves day after day with foods that do nothing for us and chemicals that have been bundled up into a nice little food-like package?" This is not an "I failed again" ... Read more
Have to end my downward spiral TODAY!

It's funny (ok not really) how you can start each day with the best of intentions, and yet time and time again let bad decisions during your day ruin any efforts you started. I had lost 88lbs and within the last month gained back 6lbs from maki... Read more

Just finished my 2nd hour of elliptical today and I feel great! I did a total of 20 minutes on the stationary bike, 120 minutes of elliptical, and even got some strength training in today. It seems like I have been hanging around the 285-288l... Read more

On January 3rd, I wrote a blog post about how I gained back 35lbs in 4 months after getting away from Sparkpeople. I really felt I had learned from it and focused again on living a healthier lifestyle. It is now 6 weeks later, and I am happy ... Read more
A little is better than none

I had pretty much made up my mind I was going to take today off and not exercise. There were installers putting in a new furnace for most of the day and until tomorrow the old one is sitting right beside the elliptical machine. As it got later a... Read more

This is a post I wasn't psyched about writing, but here goes. After basically a 4 month hiatus from SparkPeople, I am returning to continue what I started before getting off track in August. Things were going pretty well and I was down 71 lbs, ... Read more
Gotten a little off track the past few days...

I am starting to see how easy it is to slip back into old ways, as the last few days I have gotten a little bit off track. I was at my lowest weight so far on Tuesday, and then to celebrate finally being done with a presentation I had been work... Read more

After being slightly disappointed last week that I hadn't see any difference in weight despite my best efforts, I've seen quite a change since then. Within a few days of my last post I noticed the scale going down again, and as of today I have l... Read more
Great week of cardio, but without much to show for it...
Sunday, June 14, 2009      2 comments

This week has been great as far as getting my cardio in goes, and I can't say that I messed up anything in my diet, so it should have been my best week yet. Unfortunately, I didn't lose anything and my weight stayed steady for the week. I am n... Read more
Really happy with this week!

This week has really been motivating for me. Two days ago I met my first short term weight goal and was able to adjust it now to the total that I want to lose. Earlier in the week I increased what I wanted to burn weekly to 600 calories and end... Read more

Monday, June 01, 2009      3 comments

I finally decided today that my fitness goals are no longer in line with what I need to be doing so I am changing them to more realistic numbers. I always go over them as they were set for when I first started exercising and I will change them a... Read more
