I just returned from a 3-week trip to New Zealand. I had a great time, but now it's time to get back to work. I started back on SP on Monday and have been logging all of my food and exercise, started strength training again, and have been meet... Read more
Bad Girl During a Bad Year
Saturday, October 31, 2009      0 comments

The past year has been pretty bad, and I've been bad right along with it. My boss was being completely evil to me and I went to a counselor for the first time in my life to deal with it (and the counselor completely freaked me out because she g... Read more
Death in the Family

My stepdad died unexpectedly this morning so I'll be going back to Kansas for several days and probably won't be able to keep track of things while I'm gone. I also won't have my stability ball and won't be able to do most of the bootcamp video... Read more

Completed another day of bootcamp. Only did a morning walk at work, and walked the dog for 30 minutes after work (and 10 minutes this morning). Did the Day 4 video and the 15 minute abs video. I have trouble with abs stuff sometimes because I... Read more
Day 10

60 minutes of walking today overall and the upper body Day 3 video. I also ate a whole bag of salad (it only had 2 servings in it and it was salad, so I figured it was ok). I'm running a little ahead of schedule tonight so I think I might head... Read more

I walked the dog this morning (a quick 10 minute walk), walked for both breaks at work (30 minutes), and walked the dog very briskly after work for 30 minutes. Did the day 2 video as well as the challenge video. I also started the health... Read more

Made it through day 8 so far. I didn't do the challenge yesterday, but did the video. I had my birthday party last night, so I burned a ton of calories cleaning all day long. I was hoping to rest today, but I did the 10 minute video and I'm d... Read more

I was still tired all day today. I think I'll go to bed early and tackle everything tomorrow. I'm throwing myself a birthday party (my birthday was right after christmas so nobody was around then) and I need to finish cleaning and decorating. ... Read more

I have been really tired all day. My skylight stopped leaking (it finally stopped raining for the time being) and no major damage done as far as I can tell. I was really busy at work though, and expect to be again tomorrow. Went out with frie... Read more

It's raining cats and dogs, so all inside workouts today. Did my bootcamp video, two 10 minute SP cardio videos, and 10 minutes of step aerobics to my mp3 player. Ate my 3 veggies too, pumpkin soup for lunch, and a baked potato with a ton of c... Read more

Wow. Today seemed really hard. My arms are so weak! I did the challenge of 2 sets of close arm wall pushups too. And in addition to my 20 minute walk I did the 10 minute Jump Start Workout and WOW! That was hard! In other news, I'm a... Read more
Boot Camp Day 2

I hate squats and lunges. I hurt my knees really badly once doing them, and I was even being careful and making sure my knees didn't go over my toes. I was in excruciating pain for several days afterward. So I was extremely careful today and ... Read more

Okay, I'm back on track today. I did the boot camp video this morning and also did the challenge (updated my sparkpage with my current measurements and goals for the month). I just want to get back to where I left off before I started my backs... Read more

I got derailed a bit today. I went out to lunch with a bunch of people as a farewell to three of our coworkers who were laid off and I ended up letting myself go a little overboard. That's okay though, I just need to go on from here. I am goi... Read more
On Track

It is getting easier. I have logged all of my food for the past several days, stayed within my calorie range for the past few, and remembered to do my strength training the past two times (including today). I haven't gotten in as much cardio a... Read more
