London Confessions
Monday, March 10, 2014      2 comments

Forgive me father, for I have sinned ... OK so I was in London last week and while I definitely did some things right, I also definitely did some things wrong. The good - I went to the gym four days out of the 7 I was gone. I also st... Read more
Exercising on Wednesdays is for Chumps.
Tuesday, March 04, 2014      5 comments

Apparently. This year, I've been giving myself physical stickers on a physical calendar for days when I exercise at least 30 minutes. My goal is 21 days per month. I've never done this before. I've tracked, but never so visually. ... Read more
Does Boot Camp Get Easier? Welllllll...
Thursday, February 27, 2014      1 comments

The other day one of the comments I got was a question of whether boot camp might get easier or if I'd just start feeling like a total bad ass. (I'm paraphrasing.) Here's the thing. Boot camp is kicking my ass right now. While I'm doi... Read more

This morning I was formulating a good old fashioned ranting blog in my head. Basic premise: Me - working out and eating right for 2+ months now and have lost half a pound - maybe 1.5 if the unofficial weigh-in holds. Boyfriend - ate oatmeal... Read more
Boot Camp & Weigh-in
Tuesday, February 25, 2014      2 comments

I weighed in on Sunday, as per my normal weekly weigh-in. The scale hadn't budged. EFF YOU, SCALE, I thought at the time. Normally I only weigh myself once a week, then I put the scale away until the following Sunday so that I don't do it every ... Read more

My shoulder's all messed up to begin with and two days of boot camp plus an orthodontist visit means that literally every single part of my body is sore. Legs, arms, shoulders, teeth ... even inhaling too deeply hurts my sore abs. Ha! I sound li... Read more
Boot Camp Exercises
Wednesday, February 19, 2014      2 comments

I'm trying to remember all the exercises we do in boot camp, but it's proving to be quite difficult. (a) We do a lot of different exercises, and (b) I have a craptastic memory. Here's what I remember from yesterday - we did our warm-up of ... Read more
Gym + Trampolines + Boot Camp = Near Death Experience
Tuesday, February 18, 2014      2 comments

Yesterday was a holiday and I was determined to get myself and the 13-year-old kid out of the house and do something active. While I've been going to the gym and keeping myself busy, he's had several snow days plus a long weekend and he was star... Read more
Boot Camp, Part Deux
Wednesday, February 12, 2014      2 comments

I used to do an outdoor, 6AM fitness boot camp class. It made me feel like a bad ass. Especially in winter. :) I loved it. Every single class was different, so I never got bored and my body never really got used to it. Running, suicides, mountai... Read more

Somewhere around October or November, I noticed a new couple at my gym working with a trainer. Both were almost certainly clinically considered morbidly obese. And there they were, with a trainer, trying to take charge. At the time, I thought, "... Read more
Kindergarten-Style Motivation

I was up past my bedtime last night. Not super late, but getting up at 5:30AM is a lot easier if you go to bed at 10PM than it is if you go to bed at 11:30. I DID NOT WANT TO GET OUT OF BED. I did not want to go to the gym. But. My g... Read more

Whew. After a mysterious two pound GAIN, I'm happy to say the scale was back down those two pounds this week. Only those two pounds, but I'll take it. Now perhaps my body is back in cooperation mode. I really think the gain was a freakout ... Read more

Three months ago, my endocrinologist mentioned the idea of diet pills. I posted about it at the time:
