Moderation...in Spades
Saturday, March 22, 2008      1 comments

So I'm trying to be moderate. Moderation has never been my strong suit. But I'm trying. I took a long look at what I'm doing and I gave up sugar and refined carbs for energy and since I started exercising, I'm getting up so early that I'm t... Read more
This was an atypical week!
Saturday, March 22, 2008      2 comments

There are three days in a row that I didn't do cardio. I missed one upper and lower body workout (strength). And I stopped taking multi-vitamins (my husband read a report where it said they caused cancer but I wanted to see if it would affect my... Read more

Yesterday, I went to a consignment store in an upscale area with my daughter. Consignment shopping used to be one of my favorite things when I was size 2/4 and got the best clothes for no money since most people shopping at these resale shops mu... Read more

I tried a kickboxing class which I hadn't done in years...and loved it. Only had time for half but it was fun! I started the Couch to 5k Program so I could start running again and got through Day 1 with no problem and a desire to keep runni... Read more
So I span. Or spinned. Or spun. Whatever, I did it...

and I can't say that I was all that excited about it. I mean, I made it through the class with modifications (like I can't stand on the pedals going up a hill because my knees are just not going to stand for it, no pun intended) and I increased ... Read more

My exercise has been erratic this week. Some days I did my strength in the morning and my elliptical in the afternoon, because of time constraints. Friday I only did strength, meaning to do my cardio today, Saturday, which is usually my day off,... Read more
I Stretched!
Sunday, March 02, 2008      3 comments

I've been a little wary of the exercise classes at my gym out of fear I couldn't keep up. But I also need to stretch so I took a Beg/Int Yoga class this morning after my strength and cardio workout. It was great--I wasn't perfect in the moves b... Read more
Finally Broke the Plateau!
Sunday, March 02, 2008      3 comments

It seems like since I started cutting back on carbs and fat, things have started moving. I was 161.5 today and that's the lowest I've been since 2002. I know that 1500 calories a day might work for other people but for me, I think it's too much.... Read more

Miracle1971 is the worldwide winner on the Fitness Board with 4725 minutes of exercise logged for February. Congrats! I'm like #1048 or something (but only #49 if you just look at NY). Still, I figure I'd have to add an hour of exercise every e... Read more
Back on Track
Thursday, February 28, 2008      1 comments

Okay--yesterday, I was NOT happy. Several reasons--scale was up for no reason, I'm constantly tired which was the whole reason I started eating better to begin with, and I was so exhausted on Tuesday that I worked out less on Wednesday to give m... Read more

Everyone has an off day, I guess
Monday, February 25, 2008      1 comments

Well, yesterday was mine. I overate, big time, but not the wrong things--just too many of the right things. I was like a machine, mindless eating. I don't know if it was over frustration since the scale wont go down, or boredom, or stress o... Read more
Exercise Crisis Narrowly Averted :)
Friday, February 22, 2008      1 comments

Okay, anyone who knows me (or takes a look at my food and exercise logs on here) knows I'm a creature of habit. I don't do well with interruptions to routine. One wrong move and the whole thing goes out the window...you've been there too? S... Read more
A Question about Heart Rate...
Tuesday, February 19, 2008      2 comments

Not sure where to post this but maybe someone will read this and give me some answers. I'm not sure what my normal resting heart rate is or was...but when I went for my fitness eval at the health club they were a little concerned that my re... Read more
A Little at a Time
Sunday, February 17, 2008      2 comments

Well, still got part of that two-pound rebound (I lost 1/4 lb of it this week) but then again, I ate a bag of salted peanuts in their shells during a concert (there was nothing else I could eat and I was starving!) and I haven't really starved m... Read more
