Obstacles Can't Slow Me Down
Friday, June 01, 2012      0 comments

Well, that's not exactly true. I have been slowed down by some obstacles. By a lot of obstacles. I had outpatient surgery a week ago on my, ahem, reproductive organ. I was advised that I could work out as long as I didn't have a particular s... Read more

I am so excited! Our insurance company has a program that rewards you for participating in health-improving plans. Basically, you are screened (over the phone) by one of their nurses, then the two of you come up with an action plan. Once you ... Read more
No more PLUS sizes!

Even though my closet is still full of them, most of my clothing is stupidly huge on me. We are going to a wedding tomorrow and I want to look decent, if not great. I think compared to how I did look, I DO look great, but I have a long way to ... Read more
Staying on Track, even with an injury
Wednesday, May 09, 2012      0 comments

I've continued losing between 3-4 lbs/week, in spite of my knee injury. Unfortunately, after being seen by a dr. this week regarding my knee, I have to drastically modify my fitness regime. He suggested I swim in addition to the bike. I don't... Read more
End of Week Two
Thursday, April 26, 2012      0 comments

Well, I've had a doozy of a week - hurt my knee Saturday, clearly my heavy body is too much for my knee to handle running on the street. A few more pounds? Last night, I had an accident in the kitchen that left me splayed out on the floor ... Read more
First Real Workout of the Challenge
Wednesday, April 18, 2012      1 comments

Today was another assessment day, but it was done as a workout. Think school gym class with running drills, jumping jacks, squats and lunges and bicycle crunches. Basically in ten minute intervals for about 45 minutes. It was at times exhiler... Read more
End of Week One
Tuesday, April 17, 2012      2 comments

Well, this week has been an excellent one on the fitness side of things. Even when I have not eaten as well as I should, I stayed on the lower side of my calorie range. That isn't saying much, since I find every time I log my food, I realize I... Read more
This is the first day of the rest of (my) life

Of course, nothing comes easy. This morning was the beginning of the challenge at the Y. I awoke having some terrible health symptoms (hormonal imbalance that has caused erratic and excessive female issues). I knew that it could become an exc... Read more

I have to admit that my first title for this entry was "Sad". All I'm thinking is that for the past too many years there have been reason after reason, excuse upon excuse, why I have not gotten into better health. I am going to admit right... Read more
I could give an excuse...

... but that's just insulting to everyone. Especially me. I've been remiss in being on SP and in being good about tracking things. I've lost 14 pounds since Christmas, just being more conscious about what I'm doing - eating more fruits ... Read more
Back Trouble
Tuesday, March 24, 2009      1 comments

Well, I had an eval done a few weeks ago, since I have this serious pain in my lower back and right hip. This was all a result of a whiplash injury from an almost-car-accident 5 years ago when I slammed the brakes to avoid being hit by a red li... Read more
Tracking Food
Thursday, March 12, 2009      1 comments

I am always surprised when I track my food intake that I am typically eating far below even 1200 calories per day. I'm thinking this is probably contributing to my weight problem, because surely my body isn't healthy with so few nutrients. ... Read more
The best intentions
Tuesday, March 10, 2009      0 comments

After my last entry, I stopped working out again. My knee was hurting all the time again (my injury last year was a complete tear of my ACL in my left knee, along with a series of meniscus tears - these were all repaired during surgery in July,... Read more
Back on the Wagon
Tuesday, January 27, 2009      0 comments

I suppose I need the extra motivation to stay on track. Since I hurt myself last spring, I fell off the wagon and with the inability to exercise, I didn't do as I knew I should and trim back on my food consumption. Therefore, I gained back som... Read more
Birthday Blues
Wednesday, October 03, 2007      1 comments

Okay, I don't really have the birthday blues... But I did want the number on the scale to be lower than it is by now. Ah, oh well. I think the key is consistency and I'm really working on that. The eating part, I've got down pretty well - so... Read more
