100 day streak? I don't think so
Sunday, February 07, 2010      5 comments

So 3 weeks ago I decided that I wanted to do a 100 day exercise streak. I usually try to work out 6 days a week and I usually average about 5. I thought this would be a good "quickstart" for me to help me get back on track since I had not been... Read more

I have been trying to get back on track for a while now. I haven't been doing horribly, but I sure haven't been doing great. I was on such a roll for such a long time and I knew that eventually I would hit a rough patch, but I feel like I've h... Read more

I love it so much. It was one more thing that I had stopped doing because I had just gotten too heavy to do. It's probably really hard on my knees at this point too, but this was my 50 lb reward. So it's probably like 2.5 years since I played... Read more

So a few weeks ago (like maybe 5 or 6) I took all of the clothes that I had packed away because I couldn't fit into them anymore and pulled them ALL out and sorted through them. I got a lot of "new" clothes from that. That was great. The clo... Read more

Saturday, September 12, 2009      8 comments

So I decided that I would take this weekend off from the gym because I was just so sore last night. I thought, wouldn't it be neat to do other physical things instead? Ride our bikes, go for a hike, swim. When I got up this morning it wa... Read more

I KNOW people are just trying to be helpful, but I don't need this kind of help. First of all let me just say that this is kind of a rant and vent blog, but I'm pretty much over the incidents. I've been going to my gym for years and... Read more
Little Changes = Big Rewards
Sunday, August 02, 2009      4 comments

It's so satisfying to step on the scale and get that quantified "yes" when you lose weight. Yes, you've been exercising. Yes, you've been eating what you should and the right amounts. The first couple of months have been all about that, and I... Read more
Does anyone out there need some 6X exercise clothes?
Tuesday, July 28, 2009      3 comments

Hi all, I had a super hard time finding exercise clothing that fit and could be worn in public. That search paid off though and I've exercised my way out of my 6X shorts and t-shirt into a 5X. I hate to see these clothes go to waste ... Read more
