Friday, May 21, 2010      2 comments

Whoa... after so many weeks of clean eating I forgot what junk food does to a girl! Headaches, heart palpitations, sugar highs and lows... This sucks! While I fully intend to splurge this long weekend, I need to remember the physical consequen... Read more
Why I Hate Tuesday Night Step Class
Wednesday, May 19, 2010      2 comments

(and also, why I haven't gone in months) - The instructor doesn't think using the microphone is necessary. - The instructor calls the steps AFTER she's midway through them. - The instructor gets so winded that she can't call out the ste... Read more

I'm having a tough time adjusting to the hot weather! I'm finding that I'm feeling really nauseous during my 90-minute evening bootcamp, and then I feel even more nauseous afterwards! I'm drinking TONS of water (10+ glasses a day, plus a few g... Read more

Instructor: "You've lost weight." Me: "Um-hmm." (Polite smile.) Instructor: "How much weight have you lost?" "I don't know. I don't have a scale." "You don't have a scale?" "Nope." "Well how are you losing the weight?" "I come here... Read more
I'm SOOOOO Hungry!

For the past two days I've been starving! It's not period-related, I haven't changed my exercise routine... I'm just starving! I'm at the high end of my recommended calorie intake (including seven calories over the other day!) and I'm getting ... Read more
Clocking in My Fitness Minutes
Monday, May 10, 2010      3 comments

Yet another ninety-minute bootcamp! This time we did crunches from a reclining position and it was soooo much better than regular crunches... no strain on my back! I'm not sure what it is about that position that works with my body, but I'll d... Read more
I Did Nothing Today!

I woke up at 1:00 pm, made some lunches for the work week, read Lonely Planet Turkey, watched Amazing Race, did laundry... I only left my house to take out the garbage (and recycling!). This is seriously the laziest day I've had since I started... Read more
The Long(est) Walk

So I looked online for local walking trails and found one around a nearby lake. I decided to head out this afternoon to give it a shot. The loop was described as being two hours. Well, after about an hour of walking I realized I wasn't ... Read more

I walked straight into a fire hydrant today and totally wiped out! A few months ago that would have seriously injured me, but today I think I was strong enough to protect my body from injury. All I have are minor scrapes on my knees and palms!... Read more

Today I comfortably wore a non-stretchy skirt that I bought in Italy in 2006. I wore it with a sweater that I wore once in 2008, but decided it was too tight. Aaaah... I have got some great old clothes that I can't wait to wear again! ... Read more

Somehow there ended up being ice cream sundaes in the lunchroom today! I didn't even realize, but my boss came and said, "Go to the lunchroom!" I was confused, and she wouldn't tell me why, so I just did as I was told. Inside... ice cream! I... Read more
