Got dressed, got to the Y on time, and didn't go to Body Combat. Friend that was with me chickened out again. Then, I couldn't get a racquetball court, so I didn't wanna do anything. Jeesh! I cam home and slept all day. I needed a short nap, but... Read more

I went shopping today and tried on a few clothes. I have gone down 2 shirt sizes at Old Navy, gone down a size in yoga pants, gone down 2 jean sizes, and have lost a cup size. I couldn't believe it when I kept pulling clothes off and telling my ... Read more

Since my last weigh in at the Y, I have gained 2 lbs. I have been eating a lot or so it seems to me, because they told me to up my calorie intake to better fit my activity level. Could it be that for my metabolism that I am eating too much? Or c... Read more

I tried on some jeans today that I had put away in the back of my closet because they were too tight. Well, guess what! They were too big. I was shocked, I didn't feel that I had lost enough weight/inches for my pants to be that big. I got anoth... Read more

I am coming along quite nicely, with the exception of jogging. I was doing good and improving on my lap time, but from pushing myself to do better and not knowing how to stretch properly, I am having soreness in my shins. I have since learned so... Read more

The title says it all... Between having my 2 year old niece dropped unexpectedly on my doorstep and all the snow it has been a hard month so far. I haven't lost anymore, but I haven't gained either so I guess I should be happy with that. My niec... Read more

Now that I had my personal training/orientation to the gym at the YMCA, I feel so much better about all of the machines and not intimidated. :D I did a few reps on each machine on my program today, and did a min. or 2 on each cardio machine. I l... Read more

I don't know if I had a bad day at the gym because I slept on the floor last night and am sore, or if it is because I was really busy at work and running around like crazy. But, the elliptical really kicked my butt, I normally can go 30 mins and... Read more

Hmmm.... I am totally intimidated by the gym and the machines at the Y. I am hoping that my meeting with the trainer (Rachel) will help, as she is supposed to show me how to work everything. I am really quite serious about getting fit and losing... Read more
