A couple of small goals...

Wednesday, October 29, 2014      0 comments

Since my last entry I had my doctor's appointment, and she confirmed that if I stick to my calorie range (1400-1600) I *should* lose weight. I have no thyroid issues. So I'm glad I got a wake-up call that yes, the problem is me and my lack of co... Read more

Time to seriously get serious...?

Ugh, I feel pretty awful. I totally binged today. I had a grilled chicken dinner planned, but we spent too long at the pumpkin patch so we ate out, and I ate way too much. Plus we had reeses pumpkins. Moving on...I have about 2 months befo... Read more

After my last entry, I woke up the next day with horrible shoulder and neck pain. I think I overdid it assuming I could jump back in and swim a mile when I hadn't been for a week or so. But it could also have been the weights. Anyway, I had to t... Read more

Great inspiration

I'm so over being sick. Literally and figuratively; my daughter has brought two colds home from preschool so far this fall and then we had allergies from playing out in the yard over the weekend. I was sick last week so I only got to the gy... Read more

Back from my adventure

Monday, September 29, 2014      0 comments

I had my trip and have been back a little less than a week. It was a nice trip, but so hard to stay on track eating out all the time! I've been doing fine sticking with portion control since then though. I also returned to the gym ASAP and... Read more

I started off my Friday with a mile-long swim (and then some). I swam for 50 minutes straight, except to get out and grab a drink of water. I was going to do water aerobics, but once I got to the gym I decided to just swim laps. I don't know wh... Read more

I did yoga on Friday, and it was a lot tougher than I remembered. I thought I would like it better than pilates, but I didn't, really. I may go back if I can get to it - it's at a difficult time of day - but I'm not going to sweat it if I miss. ... Read more

After my swim on Monday, I took a break on Tuesday. Last night was my second pilates class. I still enjoyed it a lot and I felt like I was getting slightly better at the exercises. This morning I got a bonus day since my husband took our da... Read more

Loving this exercise thing...but need to get the eating right

We went to the Y yesterday and I worked out on the weight machines. About all of them! I warmed up, then went from machine to machine. I hit probably 10-12 of them and did two sets of everything. I really like the machines because they make me f... Read more

Weight machine orientation; starting to get an idea of a routine

Friday, September 05, 2014      1 comments

Today I had my fitness orientation. I filled out a questionnaire, and in it I specified that I wanted to focus on seeing the machines, since I'm the most clueless about those. First I warmed up on an elliptical (which was much smoother than... Read more

More fun at the Y

Last night I did the pilates class. It was quite a challenge. I could feel ab muscles I probably haven't used since I was a performing bellydancer - and that was before pregnancy. It was good to get back in touch with my abs. But the class was a... Read more

I fell off the sugar wagon when I went on a trip out of state to visit family. It wasn't pretty but it could've been worse, too. The trip was really stressful and I got sick afterward. Lesson learned. I'm not repeating the trip again anytime soo... Read more

I went cold turkey from refined sugar on August 5th. After reading about food addiction, I felt like baked goods and sugary stuff are the items that really make me go over the edge and binge eat. Since then I haven't magically dropped pounds - I... Read more

Although we aren't members until September, when we went on the tour we got passes for two visits each before our membership starts. I used one of my visits today to go to deep water aerobics this morning. The class lasted 45 minutes, and ... Read more

Gym membership starts September

We toured the gym and it is really nice. There's an indoor track, lap pool, and all the usual machines, plus tons of classes and free childcare. The childcare is interactive so my kid might actually last an hour in it! :) Also, I discovered that... Read more
