Thanks to my dear friend, Melissa, I'm popping back in and committing to update at least weekly on SP and this blog. I've been working a 12 week challenge over at, and really enjoying the changes I'm seeing again in my quest f... Read more
Holy smoke, where does the time go?

I can't believe I've been off SP for so long. But now I'm back, and feeling really motivated again. I've gained back a few (okay, 20) pounds since last November, but I'm down from 220 to 212 again, so 8 lbs down in the last 3 weeks; I'll take... Read more

...well, trying to keep up, anyway! I've been busier just in the past few months than I remember being in the past few years ::grin:: and have been really neglecting this blog and only occasionally checking in with Sparkpeople. I finally... Read more

You know those infomercials and commercials for the latest, greatest fitness and nutrition products? The ones where the models are perfectly toned and tanned and sweating just a little, and smiling? Yeah, those ones. Well, I just want ya'... Read more

Day 2 of getting back into tracking food and exercise every day. I've really been off track, but getting into the groove of things is much easier than I expected it to be. It feels surprisingly great to exercise again; I had forgotten how emp... Read more

Too busy to do much other than tread water and try to keep from sinking until class is over next week (written final is today, yikes!) ...but I did have to post a quickie blog note, because I'm SO excited! On Sunday, it was muddy and rainy ... Read more
New workouts!

Well, today I finally dusted off my video collection. I thought of pulling out one of my old standby DVDs, but then changed my mind. I ended up choosing The FIRM Power Half Hour because it was still in the wrapper and looking rather neglected... Read more

Just a quick WOOHOO because I've finally ditched my size 18 jeans that I've been pulling up constantly to keep from falling down. I went shopping for a few things last week, and was surprised to realize I now fit very comfortably into size 14 ... Read more
Lower blood pressure, woohoo!

Went to the doctor today for a routine followup. For the first time in who knows HOW long, my blood pressure is safely within the normal range. It wasn't horrifically high before, but always hovering just a point or two below the level where m... Read more
Nervous Energy
Tuesday, February 16, 2010      1 comments

Back to my old workout routine again...feels awesome! When I was a child, adults who knew me used to say I had "nervous energy," which was simply a polite euphamism for "why can't that girl sit still?" I never really grew out of it. Unles... Read more
