I haven't posted since January, when I was surprised by some happy results on the scale. that was short-lived. The weight went right back up. I've been in perimenopause for a couple of years flashes, the whole deal. I had gone ... Read more
My scale must be malfunctioning

The scale must be broke. Something is different. The numbers are going down. I've lost 4 pounds this month. I'm .7 away from having the numbers in the tens column move down. This hasn't happened in ages. I've been restricting calories,... Read more

It's been a while since I've posted; the school year has been quite hectic. I finished the Orangetheory weight loss challenge back in November, with a grand total of 4 pounds lost. Needless to say, I did not come even close to winning ( I think... Read more

I haven't posted in a while. I took about five weeks off from exercising after I broke the toe. Then work started, and my new job position is super hectic. I came down with a respiratory infection (pretty much every educator gets sick in the f... Read more
Major setback

I was so proud of myself and my progress after I saw all my stats from Peak Performance Week. Starting to actually feel like I was getting into shape a little bit. Went to last Saturday's class (the 5th class of the week), felt like crap. No... Read more

I made it through PPW. Apparently Orangetheory does Peak Performance Week every six months so that members can see their progress. I started a month after the last one, so this was my first. I can use all the stats as a baseline to see how mu... Read more

I've been going to Orangetheory three times a week for the last four months. This week, I added a fourth session...two days in a row, Friday and Saturday. Made it through the class, and then came home and mowed the lawn. My lawnmower is one o... Read more

I've been to 41 Orangetheory classes now. I've lost about 5-6 pounds. Not a lot. I'm enjoying the workouts for the most part. I don't really like running on the treadmill. I hate burpees with the passion of a thousand fiery suns. But I rea... Read more

So n the plus side of things, I lost another pound. Progress. But on the other side, my dog died this morning. She was 17. Even though she was insanely old, and I knew this day was coming, it's still hitting me really hard. She'd been g... Read more

I did my first 5K Sunday morning. Well, I only ran a tiny little bit of it. It was very rough terrain through woods and meadows. But I did it. And I didn't finish last. I came in 80 out of 102 in my age group, and 123 out of 155 overall. My... Read more

Okay, so I've been going for almost three months. IN the last two weeks, I've noticed that my numbers haven't been as impressive. I thought that maybe my heart rate monitor was malfunctioning. I asked about it at the front desk, and they laug... Read more

In spite of the toe injury, I made it to the Orangetheory class this morning. After 17 classes, I hopped on the scale and took some measurements. I've lost three pounds! An inch off my waist and an inch off my hips! I started these classes ex... Read more

I'm on spring break right now, and have switched to morning classes to keep the flow of my little vacation. This class was a rough one...she had us moving from the treadmills to the weights every five minutes. I burned 579 calories this mornin... Read more

It's been almost two months. I have taken 14 Orangetheory classes. Had to take a week off from a respiratory infection (kids are germy...even though I wash my hands pretty much every hour, I still get sick occasionally). But here's where I'm ... Read more
