1/2 WAY THERE
Thursday, August 30, 2012      2 comments

I have been at a plateau for the last year and a half. After watching "Forks Over Knives" with a friend last month I decided to cut most animal products out of my diet. I'm pretty much a vegetarian, even though I don't like vegetables all that m... Read more
Another setback, kinda discouraged but gonna do what I can
Friday, May 04, 2012      2 comments

So I hurt my back at work last week. I was hoping a few chiropractor visits would fix it but it got even more injured on Tuesday. I love being a nurse but the toll it takes on my body is a lot to pay sometimes. So weights class is out, dance cla... Read more
Finally back on track

I have had a really rough start to 2012 and we are already nearly 5 months in! My grandma, who I am very close to was incredibly sick and nearly died during 2 back to back hospitalizations. I missed quite a bit of work to go be with her since I ... Read more
Help!! Ravenous all the time

I am hungry all the time. I'm pretty sure I know why (the whole muscle burns more than fat) and I'm definitely building muscle, but man I'm hungry! What makes it even worse is when my ADHD meds wear off in the evening. I was already starving in ... Read more

Today was the second day I've been able to train for my 5k. I did 3 miles (5k) in 51 minutes, which included 5 minutes of warm up walking and 5 minutes of cool down walking. I did intervals of walking for 60 seconds and running for 2 minutes. My... Read more
Having a workout buddy is so helpful!

I am so thankful that my friend has been excited and consistent about working out with me. She even went without me this last week when I was sick. She's really enjoying challenging herself and the "good" hurt of sore muscles that have been work... Read more
Struggling with normal eating habits at work
Tuesday, February 07, 2012      5 comments

Being a nurse and working 12 hour shifts wreaks havoc on my eating schedule. I'm up at 4:30, breakfast at 5, lucky to get a snack by 11, lunch by 2 or 3, it's rare that I get an afternoon break and I think I can count on 1 hand the times I've go... Read more

I actually got the times switched in my head and did 90 seconds of jogging and 60 seconds of walking to I did more running than I was supposed to and I still survived :-) With my 5 minute warm up walk and my running and walking intervals the ave... Read more

My first 5K
Saturday, February 04, 2012      2 comments

Yesterday a couple of my friends at work asked me to do the Color Run 5k in August. My first instinct was to immediately laugh and say "NO!". But...I looked it up and it seemed really laid back and a lot of fun so I said yes. I am not a runner, ... Read more
Frustrated
Thursday, February 02, 2012      3 comments

Ok, so I've only been "back on the wagon" for 5 days but I was hoping to see a change in my weight by now. I'm feeling like being on Prozac for the last 9 months has permanently damaged my metabolism. I've been off of it for about 3 weeks so may... Read more
Another day done!

I did get to the gym and do my 30 minutes of cardio and then went and had a very busy, but good, day at work. I'm going to try and meet my friend/workout buddy at the gym tomorrow as well. I'm sore from Monday so I know the new routine we starte... Read more
Fatigued! But going to keep plugging along....
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      1 comments

I am pooped! But my alarm is set for 4:45 so I can get to the gym at 5 when they open and do 30 minutes of cardio before I have to go to work. Then I'm going to attempt to get through my 12 hour shift. When I've done this before my endorphins ca... Read more
Today has been a good day so far

I had a great 60 minute weight lifting workout with my friend and did a little bit of Zumba afterwords but could feel myself fatiguing and didn't want to exhaust myself. I worked till muscle failure in all my muscle groups, which is a goal of mi... Read more
Lots of Changes
Monday, January 30, 2012      0 comments

Today I finally created a family schedule, a chore list for the girls, reward charts for the girls to earn stickers when they do their chores. I've been wanting to do this for a while, we'll see if my husband can help me stick with this or not. ... Read more
