atch?v=C7ssrLSheg4&ob=av2n I would also like the one-armed, one-legged bodysuit. And I would like to dance in a sparkly pink tunnel. I also think I'd be more inclined to exercise if I co... Read more
I Think I Had a Breakthrough!
Wednesday, November 02, 2011      4 comments

I went to my normal fitness class tonight- the instructor changes the routine from month to month. November is a new circuit training routine, with weights and cardio. And it was weird... I finished every single interval. Strong. With good f... Read more

This month, I exercised 1615 minutes! I think that's an all-time record! (Yup- double-checked and the old record was 1606 minutes!) It's definitely showing- I had to buy some new clothes yesterday including size four jeans, a size small skir... Read more

Saturday, October 22, 2011      4 comments

So today I hit the 120s. The very, very, very high 120s, it's true... but I'm still in the 120s. I haven't seen the 120s on the scale since high school, though it's likely that I weighed about 124-126 in my early years of university (I did... Read more

I had a massage today, and the massage therapist mentioned that I have the legs of a runner. One thing, though- I don't run! Most of my workouts are group fitness classes at the YMCA, and I do some walking on my own (including uphill o... Read more
That Was Easy!

I had to move my snow tires from my storage locker to my vehicle today. And it was SO EASY! I'm getting thinner, but I'm also getting stronger. I could easily lift each tire (on its rims) off the ground and carry it down a narrow hallway and ... Read more

Hmmmm... soda or juice or a cocktail... or herbal tea? Herbal tea sounds like a good choice! I'll just run some water through the coffee maker to heat it up! Genius! Five minutes later I go to fill my teacup and realize I for... Read more

Through my job, I get a certain amount of discretionary health spending that I can use each year. It can cover the deductible on prescription medication, or paramedical services like physiotherapy, naturopathy or chiropractic medicine. Or... m... Read more
Hey Lady at the Gym!
Wednesday, October 12, 2011      2 comments

Yes, I will give you a snarky face if you're five minutes late for a group fitness class and then you ask me to move all my equipment because you don't like any of the available positions in the room. Can you not see I'm already in the middle o... Read more

I can hear you! I might have my headphones in, but my music isn't THAT loud. Girl 1: "How fast is she walking?" Girl 2: (Looks at my treadmill screen.) "3.5" Girl 1: "Oh. What's her incline?" Girl 2: (Looks AGAIN.) "15%" Girl ... Read more
