Sunday, April 05, 2009      2 comments

As the title says, I've been keeping crappy food out of the house so it's just not there to munch mindlessly on. I also have eaten at restaurants a couple of times this weekend and I had a seafood taco and fresh fruit for one meal, and a grille... Read more

Thursday I hurt my ankle/foot falling at the dance studio, and nope, not while dancing but by misplacing my foot in the parking lot! Clutz-o-rama! It's frustrating, too, because I don't need any more reasons not to exercise! I'm still walking... Read more

Right now, I've been keeping in touch with my portion control. I've also cut down on diet soda, and increased tea even more. I generally have had healthy eating habits for the most part for many years, since being diagnosed with hypoglycemia a... Read more

As I said I would, I did go to the dance class for a trial class. I almost flaked because I wasn't feeling well but I sucked it up and went. We did tons of stretching and did ab exercises and pushups before doing basic jazz dance drills and ar... Read more

This week I've gotten my cardio in 3 times already and plan to do it tomorrow as well. I'm trying to stick to at least 4 times a week, or more if it works out. I feel better already and have been more aware of food intake and portions. I also... Read more

We got our after school walking club started up again on Friday. It's hard to work around prep and meetings but exercise is so important that we're each going to commit to doing at least 3 days, to work around everyone's different schedules we ... Read more
This insane heat isn't helping!

Ugh @ the heat....around 100 most days . We haven't been able to get our walking group back together at school yet. I'm mainly trying to stay hydrated and avoid salty junk. We bought a good amount of fruit and some other healthy items from Tr... Read more

Thanks girls for the slump support! Today I ate great and I started with yoga and meditation, which cleared that cloud out of my head. I also did a dance workout today. I feel much better and it reminded me how much I like and need yoga.... Read more
