I have futzed around enough! May Goals
Friday, April 27, 2012      3 comments

I ended my Female Body Breakthrough workouts in February and, knowing I had an elbow injury and something up with my lower back, dialed back the intensity. Then my trainer decided to leave the gym so I started working pretty intensely with him ... Read more
Successful maintenance while cruising!
Sunday, April 22, 2012      1 comments

I did it! I went on a cruise (5 nights), enjoyed myself to the fullest, splurged as I saw fit.... and came home just 0.8 pound up. After one full day at home that was gone. After another another 1.2 was gone. I'm now at my lowest weight in a... Read more
At goal.... and vacation
Thursday, April 12, 2012      3 comments

I have continued to exercise religiously. I have NOT been tracking exercise calories OR food calories though. And my weight is creeping up. I am right at goal which is a couple pounds over where I like to be to feel 'comfortable' with the num... Read more
Really not up for recapping or new goals....
Sunday, April 01, 2012      3 comments

I'm here but really just muddling through. April 1... should mean recapping and setting new goals.... only I know I didn't do so hot last month and don't feel like beating myself up. I'm starting April just a hair over the weight r... Read more
Happy Birthday to Me!
Monday, March 26, 2012      5 comments

Saturday was my birthday. My son showed me a fortune from a fortune cookie that morning 'Everything in moderation, even moderation' and I took it as my theme for the weekend. I let myself splurge and I had a great splurge :-) I weighed in thi... Read more
Trying to Spark
Monday, March 19, 2012      1 comments

I'm still not really sparking. Trying. I get up every day and peter out through the day. I get 'up' every Monday and peter out through the week. But this year I *am* trying. I really thought all the exercise was going to cure my winter blue... Read more
'Clean' carboloading?
Monday, March 12, 2012      3 comments

I worked up a new exercise plan with my trainer that I hope will allow me to continue to do cardio (which I *enjoy* and which I think helps with my mood) and gain muscle (from the intense metabolic circuit workout he built me). He said that wit... Read more

I haven't been around much and haven't shared our unexpected vacation news. We decided to take a cruise over the kids' next school break. We invited both sets of grandparents along. One set took us up on the offer and is cruising with us. Sh... Read more

I was having a bad day today..... My daughter came to me during all the morning craziness to say she couldn't find her guppy. He was dead :-( All the water parameters look good (but we are still NOT fully cycled so the fish are always st... Read more
March-ing Forward
Thursday, March 01, 2012      2 comments

February was not the best month for me. It never is and, as one should expect, meeting my weight loss goals didn't magically change my life :-) I met some goals, didn't meet others, and am marching onwards. 1. Finish phase 4 of the fema... Read more
Onward to total body circuit work :-)
Wednesday, February 29, 2012      6 comments

I met with my trainer today and we talked a bit about goals. I really don't have any except to keep on changing things up as things get too easy and keep on doing the things I like. I suppose that's an odd goal but, aside from tweaking things ... Read more
8000 extra calories
Wednesday, February 29, 2012      4 comments

I just noticed that I am over budget by about 8000 calories in the last 4 weeks. My weight.... bouncing around but stable. I think the bouncing is more hydration than anything else. 8000 'extra' calories and I'm still a size 2P hovering just ... Read more
Fat Tuesday & Ash Wednesday
Wednesday, February 22, 2012      3 comments

I took the kids to town yesterday which means we ate out. I was good at lunch... headed towards an underbudget day. And then McDonald's had Shamrock shakes. I was pretty sure I was giving up ice cream for Lent and seeing those on Fat Tuesday ... Read more
Wobbly Resolve and Getting Ready for Lent
Monday, February 20, 2012      3 comments

This last week has been rough for me. I think ending The Female Body Breakthrough mid-winter was not good timing for me. It seems to have kicked off a weakening of my good habits. A month ago I was struggling to not let my weight go too low s... Read more
It's a wrap. Can anyone recommend a yoga DVD?
Friday, February 17, 2012      5 comments

I did the last workout in The Female Body Breakthrough today. I've been at it since the kids went back to school in September. Honestly, it's a bit of a let down. I'm supposed to be in 'peak' form now. Only my weight is up a tad (my own faul... Read more
