I was huffing and puffing today, trying to cool down a bit after my 30 minute cardio session on the Elliptical. I had been toying with the idea of doing some more exercise when I got the motivation I needed! A woman who frequents the gym re... Read more

It's a crappy day here in CT. It's raining but thankfully about 45 degrees out. I was not in the mood to exercise this morning but I took solace in knowing I'd feel better as the day went on. I was supposed to meet up with my BFF to work out but... Read more

As the new year approaches, I know I'm going to see Facebook and other social media status updates saying things along the line of "I hope 2011 is a good year for me, I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for me...etc". I know I have been g... Read more

I think my new plan will be to do a few leg exercises each day I'm at the gym (just 3 sets of lunges or squats) instead of saving it all up for 1 day. OMG. I'm in pain today LOL. Still struggling to find the balance between ST and cardio. ... Read more

I held a job for a year and a half where I travelled 5 days a week. This lifestyle meant eating out 3 meals a day practically. When I lost my job and moved home, I pretty much swore off fast food of any kind except for Subway and certain restaur... Read more

When I first started out with my trainer 6 months ago, we were doing a free weight circuit 3x a week. He wanted me to do at least 20 minutes of cardio after our workouts as well. He also wanted me to come in at least 1 other day to do just cardi... Read more

Cuz I sure as hell didn't. I'll chalk this one up to a learning experience since it was my own fault i didn't check the menu before I went out to dinner. I went to Outback Steak House last night for dinner with a guy I'm dating. Saturday's ... Read more
I had to pee out 2lbs of water to move the scale!

Gross, right? In a frantic effort to move the scale and feel better, I consumed 3 cups of Green Tea for 2 days on top of my normal 64oz+ water intake. I continue to have a daily struggle with eating and exercising. I am VERY lucky that I d... Read more

And even if I can't...I'm going to anyway! I see so many blogs on here about how much of a chore it is to get to the gym and here I am, going twice in one day sometimes. I admit that it is a HUGE chore for me to get to the gym on a LOT of days b... Read more

I must confess that I was side tracked by a game of Mafia Wars on Facebook earlier and wasn't giving this my full attention. So let's try this again! ... Read more

I began to start thinking about losing weight in 2005. On Christmas Eve of 2005, my step mom dropped dead of a massive heart attack. In January of 2006, I joined Weight Watchers. I was motivated to not end up like my step mom who was severely ov... Read more
