Meal prep

Tuesday, January 06, 2015      2 comments

Although making the meal the day of doesn't really count as meal prep, I'm going to try to put together two lunches and see how it goes. I've wanted to do meal prep for a one time, but never did it. Honestly, I think my motivation is stronger no... Read more

I'm using my Jillian Michaels videos right now for a 30 day workout plan. Next month, I hope to add, and buy more, SparkPeople dvds. Below is a modified version of a workout plan I found on Pinterest. Key: 30DS - 30 Day Shred (Lvl 1 or 2), ... Read more

Early to rise.. Or at least trying to!

This morning started off with an argument. I got in a fight... With myself. *alarm goes off* Sleepy me: Ugh, it is too dark outside, I can't run at 6 am. Exercise me: But you'll regret it if you don't go now. Will you really want to ru... Read more

I love this site.

I just love it here at SparkPeople. I read through comments on past blogs and I have to say, I'm grateful for all of you. Thank you. Update: I have a plan. I'm doing C25K every other day. Yesterday, my second day of the plan, Friday w... Read more

The hardest thing...

Tuesday, July 02, 2013      2 comments

I fell off the wagon. After my mother-in-law came to visit in May, I had a week break in my workouts and I didn't pick it back up again. Today, I started again and I discovered exactly what the most difficult thing about this journey toward fitn... Read more

I finished 30 days of 30 day shred. I started March 1 and my last workout was this morning. I know you're supposed to take rest days, but I wanted to do this for myself. As a teen and young adult, I always had goals and worked to reach ... Read more

Turn a negative into a positive.

Yesterday, I finally put batteries back into my Wii balance board. I figured, hey, I've been exercising a lot over the past month and a half, watching what I eat (slipping up now and then, but it happens) and drinking lots of water. Maybe I shou... Read more

I'm afraid...

... of running. My family doesn't really understand, because none of them are interested in fitness. I'm really worried. I want to tie on my shoes, go for a run and feel great and/or worn out when I come back. And I want the benefits that g... Read more

Nutrition label

Tuesday, February 26, 2013      0 comments

If you're on this site chances are, like me, you have been paying more attention to your nutrition labels. I had been getting these boxes for dinner, they come with almost everything in them for a main dish. The meat and some sauce comes in a ca... Read more

I think I've figured it out...

Two things: I have to take things at my own pace. I need to work on a goal. I've been tracking my food on this site, that has been SO helpful. I'm also working on a challenge from a FB group. The goal is 1300 jump squats, 1000 burpee... Read more

Happy November!

Good morning :) So I have a question to anyone who might read this.. What are your goals for this month? I saw on facebook a group that is going to walk a mile a day this month. I think that's a great goal, so I decided to join. I walk... Read more

Back on track

Saturday, October 29, 2011      3 comments

Every day is a new start. I think that is my new motto. In the past, I would have gotten frustrated over a couple of days of bad eating and no exercise and I would have quit trying to get healthier. Thank goodness I can start over at any time. N... Read more

I woke up this morning and felt awful. I rolled over and pulled the blanket over my head. My son brought a cold home from school and we've both been fighting it for almost a week. I know in my head I should have gotten up early this mornin... Read more

Hi there! I just finished my exercise for the day. I'm nearing the end of my time in Level 1 of Jillian Michaels' 30 Day Shred. I've gone looking for motivation to keep me on track. One of the most important things I've seen is that it takes 4 w... Read more

Rest today

Sunday, October 16, 2011      1 comments

I had every intention of getting up at 6:30 this morning and going for a run (okay, walk/run, because I'm not quite there yet). My son was sick: fever, coughing and even threw up. So I'll be just doing 30 day shred today. Maybe I'll try and get ... Read more
