On the advice of the trainer I spoke with yesterday, I have begun to focus on building muscle over everything else (over losing weight, over working particular muscles, over lowering body fat, etc). Plan (for now): 1. Eat back all exer... Read more
Fitness Assessment = why you need a personal trainer
Monday, January 16, 2012      4 comments

I think the free fitness assessment was like a timeshare hard sell. I got some good info but no real fitness assessment (at least nothing I expected from a fitness assessment) and I did end up buying a personal training package. It actually wa... Read more

I am going to take the pounds back off but......
Tuesday, January 03, 2012      5 comments

I have to say that I like how I look a whole lot better with the 5 pounds of (water?) weight I picked up in the last 4 days. My breasts are fuller, my skin fits better over my lower body, I look softer and more feminine in my face and upper bod... Read more

1 Finish 2012 with BF% under 20%. (Maintain!) 2 Once BF is under 18% (or 18% becomes clearly an unhealthy goal), set a new fitness goal. (Maybe a 5K. Maybe a strength goal.) 3 Finish 2012 with a weight in the 120s. (Maintain!) 4 Continue ... Read more

A different sort of December
Thursday, December 22, 2011      3 comments

I usually spend December feeling overwhelmed. I do all the Christmas prep and DH pays all the bills. I know he works very hard to be able to pay the bills but I still often feel overwhelmed by the enormity of 'throwing' Christmas every year. ... Read more
