  • DAY 17: I know better

    1/18/2015 6:38:56 PM, by SUZANNE65203

    Eating got very off track yesterday afternoon. I had taken one daughter shopping for a dress and in the spirit of getting the job done we put off lunch until we were both very hungry. We did find a dress and then we quickly went to the mall food court. I got a reasonable selection (problem came ... Read more

    1/18/2015 12:51:44 PM, by RUNNING2MYSELF

    Knee Update Saw the sports medicine doc about my knee. He took a complete set of x-rays on my knees. I was right. I have awesome knees! What I don't have are awesomely limber IT bands. It always seems to come back to this. My calf tear, plantar fasciitis and now the knee are all caused by... Read more

  • The loss of my dearly loved friend Russ and the beginning of my journey without him.

    1/18/2015 11:21:50 AM, by MSKIZ69

    Back in 2007 I was at a very low point in my life after my rear end accident. My kids were in the car-thank God we survived-but my Camry was totalled and I went through months of occupational and physical therapy. During that time I met Russ who was recovering from a heart attack-we were both goin... Read more

    When I get caught up in my need to have a plan for my future wellness, I sometimes get stuck. I know where I want to be, but I have to look to others for the answers. So my plan is to surround myself with inspiring people. I look to my friends and see their accomplishments and I ask them how they go... Read more

    1/18/2015 8:32:59 AM, by ZELLAZM

    This blog has nothing to do with "Sound of Music", Julie Andrews or deer. It's about starting at the "very beginning." My trusty scale told me this morning that I've lost another two pounds making a total of 5 since I made me most recent restart in December. I'm happy about that, but it's also a bit... Read more

    All it took was getting sick to make me lose my motivation for healthy living. How's that for an irony? But I realized I can't quit. i might not feel as motivated right now to get out in the cold and exercise. I'm still recovering from being sick and I need to rest. I also might not care a...

    My last blog post was about defining strength which was in part the result of our family's crises having a very ill 3 yr. old child. Dealing with this is demanding so much strength and fortitude. Three days ago, our Little Raiden's grandpa, my nephew, called with a report of our little guy onc... Read more

    1/17/2015 9:00:49 AM, by FATHINSN

    Perhaps I become this total jerk in my workplace.

I wonder if people in the same team - peers, supervisor, team lead - are actual... Read more

    Today's report is that fitness goals went by the wayside as this week progressed. I am not going to let this get me down as this was a very unusual week due to jet lag, my husband being out of town, and starting back a new semester. The good news is that I see a lot of potential in my teaching sch... Read more

    1/16/2015 11:34:45 PM, by GONABFIT

    I logged all of my foods, walked to work, and made my 10K steps. Also cooked a healthy dinner, threw away half of my coffee (so I wouldn't drink all of my calories) GASP, and did some strength moves! But here's the real question. If someone asked you to list all of the things you were proud of.... Read more

Regretfully, it's almost impossible to accurately record different amounts of reps/sets on spark, so I'm mickey mousing it online and accurately recording it in a paper journal. It's hard for me to get starte... Read more

    I've been sick this whole week. Yesterday was my first day back to work and I was so worn out by the time I got home that I had a "cheat meal" of tacos from TB. I've been 100% on track today and hoping to have energy when I get home to get in my cardio fix workout. Still behind a couple workouts for... Read more
