30 day workout plan.

Thursday, February 06, 2014      2 comments

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

What a week!

Friday, October 14, 2011      1 comments

It has been good though, I think. I need to stock up on more Icy Hot. This week I alternated between doing the Couch to 5k running (well, walk/run) and Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred. For both I'm in the first week/level. My food hasn't be... Read more
