Shingles suck!
Friday, October 29, 2010      4 comments

I've had shingles for the past 2 1/2 weeks, and it sucks! While by all accounts I've had a very mild case, with less pain than I expected given the horror stories I've heard, but still drained of energy and just not feeling well. And it is on th... Read more
Time to recommit
Tuesday, October 05, 2010      3 comments

Wow, I feel like I lost a whole week of my life, and can't say what I did with it! I haven't been to the gym in a week, and that's the first time in 7 months that I haven't worked out at least 3 days a week. It just seemed like one thing after ... Read more
Mini Goal Met
Saturday, June 26, 2010      6 comments

This may sound stupid, but I met a small personal goal. When I started working with my trainer, he wanted me to do a sit up, grab the Smith Machine bar, and do a pull up - really a diagonal one, not a real pull-up. The problem was, I couldn't do... Read more
Challenge week 4
Thursday, June 24, 2010      3 comments

So, we're four weeks down in the Turq. Titans BL challenge, and I'm glad I join the challenge. Following others trials and triumphs has been inspiring, and helped me get past my stomach flu without giving up and having to start over. Overall, my... Read more
Getting on with it
Monday, June 21, 2010      0 comments

Since taking most of a week "off" for being sick, I'm pretty much back and getting on with it. Made it to the gym most days in the last week - I was having some back spasms, so took Thursday off, and just did cardio on Friday. I was really hopin... Read more
Finally feeling better
Monday, June 14, 2010      1 comments

Wow, what a long week it was! I finally started to really feel better Saturday, and actually had some appetite yesterday. I was feeling well enough yesterday, that I made myself go back to the gym. I knew if I didn't go soon, I'd loose the groov... Read more
Rough week
Thursday, June 10, 2010      2 comments

Wow, four days and counting with an abdominal virus! Finally able to eat something, but really have no appetite, for a change. At this point I know I'm supposed to eat at least enough to match my RMR, but I just don't feel like eating. That's a ... Read more
Challenge week 1
Wednesday, June 02, 2010      1 comments

This is the first challenge I've done, and this has been an interesting week. It really forced me to do all of my entries, something I'm not very good at, though I know it helps me stay on track. So there's the first positive. Sometimes the... Read more
A Very Good Day
Tuesday, June 01, 2010      2 comments

When I signed up with my personal trainer, they did what they call a "fit point" assessment. It's been 12 weeks, so we re-did it tonight. I increased my cardio fitness from "very low" to "low", which is at least a step in the right direction. I... Read more
5 things that will keep me motivated
Monday, May 24, 2010      5 comments

1. My trainer, Marty, who expects me to follow through, and he's just too cute to disappoint! And he checks every week! 2. Logging my cardio and weight training on my eNewLeaf calendar, it helps me see how far I've come. 3. Feeling better - ... Read more
Been a while
Tuesday, December 11, 2007      1 comments

Well, it's been a while since I've had much to say here. Things have been going pretty well, even lost .5 # during Thansgiving week, and have been averaging 2 #s a week since. I've found doing counted cross-stitch helps. First, my worst eatin... Read more
I think this helps
Monday, November 05, 2007      2 comments

Well, it's another week. The last week went better than the past few had been going, so I think this blogging may actually help. I recorded just about everything eaten, though I have less time on the weekends to do it. I made it to the gym 6 ... Read more
Something new
Tuesday, October 30, 2007      3 comments

I've never written a blog, so I'm trying something new. I'm hoping the introspection keeps me more focused than I've been since July. I've lost and gained back the same 4 lbs for the past 4 months, so something has to change. My goal for this ... Read more
