I've completed my activities for day two of the bootcamp challenge. And I must admit that it was very hard getting started today. I had a boatload of excuses for the 3-4 inches of snow outside to "I'm trying to watch Sherlock Holmes". But my ... Read more

Wow! I am really out of shape! I went to the gym after work and did 25 minutes on the treadmill. I jogged for 5 of the 25 minutes (a big accomplishment for me because I usually don't push myself). Came home and got some sleep and then did... Read more

Thursday, December 02, 2010      3 comments

On this journey to be healthier, I am learning to celebrate the small milestones. I have a pair of size 18 jeans that fit me very uncomfortably and the zipper would always unzip. (But I like them and I refuse to go to a size 20) I thought it w... Read more

I ate the giant cookie from Panera. 13 points on WW. I am not going to beat up on myself. I was stressed (Dad's in the hospital) and tired. Too weak to resist it. Will just have to make better choices for the rest of the day. O point fruits... Read more

Ok, I've been walking occasionally but I have not gotten back into the routine of exercising "hard core" as I did at the beginning of the year. Working out was second nature to me then....It was automatic, I didn't even think about it. I was j... Read more
