I've decided I need to revamp my February challenge. Doing leg exercises every day has left me too sore for any sort of cardio. My thighs have ached so bad that i have all I can do to make it up and down the stairs at work (my office is on the 3... Read more

I'm pretty sure I'll get a good workout in the form of shoveling snow today! The forecast is up to 10 inches for my area, more towards the coast where I work. I'm definitely not looking forward to my 30 mile drive home, maybe the boss will be re... Read more

I've started my strengthening challenge for February and I want to publicly make a note of where I am now so that I have a comparison at the end of the month and additional motivation to show some changes when the month is over. My goal is to lo... Read more

It's another Monday, and a new month, time to get my butt in gear and make sure I have some muscle tone by the time my fiance comes home! Almost the end of the work day, and then heading home to work out. I'll get some extra exercise in while I ... Read more

Ending January on a "Blah" Note
Friday, January 31, 2014      2 comments

I started off the week feeling like I was coming down with a cold, and got smacked hard with it on Wednesday. I ended up leaving work early, going home, and burrowing under the covers after taking cold meds. I woke up once Wednesday evening, ate... Read more

My stepdaughter is 15 today! She's requested to spend this coming weekend with me, and asked if it can be a long weekend since she doesn't have school on Friday due to a teacher's in-service day. She wants to have a Harry Potter marathon weekend... Read more
1/2 Way There!

I've survived the first half of my fiance's deployment! This has got to be the hardest thing I've ever done. I didn't comprehend just how difficult it would be for me. I've always been independent and kind of a loner, how bad could 11 months be ... Read more
Healthy BMI
Tuesday, January 21, 2014      5 comments

I know that BMI is a debatable health measurement since it doesn't take into account how muscular or fit a person is, but at the moment I'm very happy to use it! For the first time in quite some time, I'm at what is considered a 'healthy' BMI! A... Read more

I very much don't want to be at work right now :-/ It's a dull, grey, dreary sort of day, I feel like crap, and my mind is anywhere but at work. I'd rather be home wrapped up in a comforter, snuggling with the cat and a book. Hopefully this day ... Read more
Weird Dreams
Friday, January 10, 2014      3 comments

During each of the last 3 nights, I've had dreams weird enough to wake me up in the middle of the night. I only remember the first one though; for some reason I was running the grand opening of a restaurant (I've never worked in this industry at... Read more

Today I stepped on the scale and saw a number under 155 (just barely) for the first time since I started this journey. It's been very slow going so far! Between that, and the fact that I'm feeling really energetic for some reason, it's a good da... Read more
Hump Day

I didn't quite manage my entire to-do list yesterday, but it was still a very productive day! I decided to do an overhaul on my wardrobe. Considering I had 4 loads of clean laundry to put away, and still had quite a bit in my dresser and closet,... Read more
