Dear Scale:

Thursday, November 20, 2014      5 comments

I think you and I need a break from each other. We have this toxic relationship where I'm always trying to get validation from you - and you're just being honest, I get it, so it's not your fault. It's not you - it's me. I need to work on not... Read more

A great week, a great weekend...

Monday, November 17, 2014      1 comments

And it's shaping up to be another great week. I'm feeling strong and motivated! I didn't want to get up and do Insanity this morning - it's a cool, grey, rainy morning here, which is never conducive to getting out of bed, much less so for ... Read more

Book recommendation!

Friday, November 14, 2014      2 comments

If you are looking for a handy, at-a-glance, easy-to-remember reference that'll help you make better eating choices, I highly recommend "Food Rules" by Michael Pollan. (I actually recommend ANY book by Mr. Pollan - that dude is revolutionizing ... Read more

Cardio recovery day...

Thursday, November 13, 2014      4 comments

I do love this workout... Some really good stretching going on here, but there are also some fantastic strength exercises. Love it! Although I love it, it's not really too much of a calorie burner - so I may grab an "extra" tonight. ... Read more

Getting older is not for wimps

Wednesday, November 12, 2014      2 comments

It is vitally important to develop healthy habits while you're young. I started being earnestly serious about my health in my early to mid-thirties, which isn't such a late start, I guess - but in hindsight, I wish I'd been better about it... Read more

Still truckin'

Upper respiratory crud has finally left me, "lady problems" now no longer pestering me - and I'm back on the wagon! :) Had no trouble popping out of bed this morning to get my workout done and over with. Boy did that feel good. Of course... Read more

Rewarding oneself

Thursday, November 06, 2014      2 comments

So, as I am now headlong into my second week of Insanity, I realized yesterday that I need a better sports bra. My old one was okay for what I needed it to do before... but for Plyo, there really isn't a whole heck of a lot of jumping around in... Read more

I ended up going home last night and crashing... HARD. Not surprising, given that I had about 3.5 hours of sleep on Sunday night. Honestly, though, I think it was for the best, because I came back this morning STRONG. Popped out of bed, t... Read more

Weekend Recap

Monday, November 03, 2014      3 comments

This weekend was a total crapfest!! Got home early on Friday - which was kind of nice, because it allowed me to catch up on some stuff while waiting for the furnace guy showed up. He was SUPER nice, very thorough, very smart, and didn't tr... Read more

Triumphs and trials

Friday, October 31, 2014      2 comments

Fixing the furnace was a bust. The igniter is not the problem - replaced it myself, even though the old one didn't look bad, and still no ignition... not so much as a click, just a hum. I suspect a faulty control board or inducer motor. Time ... Read more

Insanity Day 2 - FINISHED IT

Thursday, October 30, 2014      3 comments

Major patting myself on the back today - I finished the ENTIRE workout. Took Greg's advice to just stop and regroup and get back into it, and that really helped! Thanks, Greg!! So to catch up since I am a day behind, I'm going to do Cardi... Read more

First Impression of Day 1 of INSANITY

Wednesday, October 29, 2014      3 comments

It has earned its title, and no joke. Day 1 is Plyometric Circuit.. and I didn't even get through the whole thing. It's 47 minutes long; I was able to do 41. I guess that's not too shabby, all things considered. ~460 calories burned - ab... Read more

Ready to kick my own keester!

INSANITY BEGINS TONIGHT. And I need to quit laying in bed in the mornings... I miss my morning workout routines. But the mornings are so daaaaaark now. And the puppydog is so waaarrmm. I may resort to putting my alarm all the way on ... Read more

Lovely weekend...

Monday, October 27, 2014      1 comments

But oh boy did I overindulge. Back on track for me today, because let me tell you, my body is definitely letting me know it. It's not even like anything I had was especially unhealthy, but I think that the drinking probably did me in. So many... Read more

The DietBet has begun!

Wednesday, October 22, 2014      4 comments

I just put my money where my mouth is. :) Thirty bucks says I can lose 4% of my body weight in 4 weeks. I've just made that bet along with almost 3500 other people... and those of us who make goal get to split the pot. The pot is close t... Read more
