Rolling Along

I wanted to shake up my exercise routine today, so I went rollerblading. The track I chose had quite a bit of up and down, so it was a good workout! It became less fun after the sun came out and started roasting me alive, though.... Read more
A Premonition of Sorts
Wednesday, August 31, 2011      2 comments

Last night I dreamed about doing squats and weight lifts. And today is my day to do strength training. I really have fitness on the brain! I was a little disppointed when I realized that was a dream and I hadn't already done my squats today... Read more

My weight just ballooned up five pounds. This doubled the amount of weight I need to lose. I know that I did not eat that many calories. I know that whatever is causing this gain, it is not fat. Still, it is hard not to freak ou... Read more

I decided to lower the amount of exercise I should get each week. I am so busy, five days a week hasn't been happening. So I am going to aim for three days a week and lower my calorie intake requirements. That should not be a problem, as I was h... Read more

Wednesday, August 17, 2011      0 comments

So the trouble wasn't with my teeth at all- it was my gums. Gum disease. Yuck, huh? But I am so glad I didn't have a giant cavity. They can't fit me in at the dentist until Thursday, and I was in some pIan on Mon and Tues. Today, Wed, the s... Read more

Proud

I am proud of myself. During the past few weeks I had a much busier work schedule than usual and there were days when I simply could not work out. Yet when I did have the time, I did not hesitate, but jumped right back in and worked out. ... Read more
Low Cal Breakfast!

Today for breakfast I had a slice of cantaloupe. I knew that probably was not enough, so I had a slice of tomato as well. Then I went to work and plugged it into the tracker- 23 calories! I did not intentionally undereat, but I find it funn... Read more
