Better Day
Monday, August 29, 2011      2 comments

Went to the gym...and I feel like a new person! Every "chug" on the elliptical realeased more stress. Strength training felt a little lack luster because I'm breaking it up (properly) into an every other day rotation of legs and arms, crunch m... Read more

Feel free to not read this blog everyone...I am full of whiny feelings today and need to get them out and resolve them so that they don't poison the rest of my week! A listing of my whiny feelings: 1. I miss the gym. I hate that I can... Read more
Lazy Saturday
Saturday, August 27, 2011      2 comments

I got a little exercise in today, but my heart wasn't in it...I'm just tired! I've been getting plenty of sleep (AND a few naps here and there)...I'm just exercising too much, SP too much, TF too much, etc. I decided around lunch time that I'm... Read more

My name is Jessica, and I'm a processed food addict
Thursday, August 25, 2011      11 comments

A little dramatic, yes...but lately I'm kind of feeling like I need AA for high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated fats. :P This week, I made a "secret" goal (yes, this is sad, but sometimes I need to get things right in my own head befo... Read more
Elliptical DUH
Wednesday, August 24, 2011      4 comments

Well, I found out today why I hate running forward on elliptical machines (even though I could do it backwards for hours) must increase the resistance until you feel comfy. This might be apparent to EVERYONE in the world, but not to me. ... Read more
Exactly how much muscle CAN you gain?
Tuesday, August 23, 2011      9 comments

I read a lot of blogs yesterday dealing with "scale issues". From small fluctuations of +/- .5 lb to "big" fluctuations of +/- 5 lbs. (or more), we all have or have had scale issues. One of the most popular responses I've read to these blogs i... Read more
Forced Work Out
Monday, August 22, 2011      4 comments

Okay, not really forced...I like to go. But (sadly? Luckily?) my 3 year old likes to go now also. As I explained in an earlier blog, she thinks the children's program at the Y is school, and she wants to go every day...several times a day, if... Read more

Well...I overdid it yesterday. Big time. Not so much the actual activity I did, but its more the cumulation of the last few weeks of me pushing myself(because it's fun for me) and not giving my body enough time to recover. So today is NO card... Read more

Strength this week: Cardio. Always! Weakness: Strength training. I just can't make myself like it. But I'm doing it anyway! Goal for next week: realign the distribution of my caloric intake. I hate breakfast, but I'm eating it anyway...... Read more

Today I brought the little one to the Y with me for the first time. I have been hesitant because she's never been in a daycare environment...when I need a sitter, I have a friend who does child care out of her home. So she's used to kids, but ... Read more

Wednesday, August 17, 2011      24 comments

Well...I weighed this morning. I was going to wait until Monday, as it is now my routine, but I was weak...and I lost another lb! This puts my grand total at 40 lbs GONE! I am moving along right on track...1-2 lbs. per week. At this rate, I ... Read more

I just tried to post a very long involved blog that took half an hour to type. Then the GD internet blanked out on me. I just do not have the energy to for now, I'm just going to say that my motivation to DO THIS has never been str... Read more
Frozen Scale...that I'm happy about!
Monday, August 15, 2011      8 comments

The scale didn't move today...but I'm REALLY okay with it! Because I know the following: --I'm full of retained water right now...(TOM is in town) --I'm full of undigested food (from the barbecue yesterday...has not yet "reappeared") -... Read more of rest...or so I thought!

Well, I had planned to take today off...until I took note of my surroundings. Spent two full hours this morning doing heavy cleaning in my hour of moving around all of my furniture to scrub/mop the floors (we stupidly thought having ... Read more
