I finally got my copy in the mail after a long and impatient wait. Yay! Last night I did a 4.5 mile run and then came home to try my new dvd out. I did Level 1 with 8 pound weights and it was great! It was very MTC like and it felt like a good w... Read more
The cost of being fit
Thursday, April 03, 2008      7 comments

I was watching t.v. last night and yet another Jenny Craig commercial came on with Queen Latifah urging people to join and get healthy. It got me thinking back to years ago when I joined Jenny Craig and how expensive it was. I think by the time ... Read more
My new toy
Wednesday, February 27, 2008      9 comments

I have been wanting a Garmin for forever, but it's hard to get past the price. It's a lot of money to spend on what's essentially a toy for myself and I felt selfish even wanting one. When we sold our condo in Las Vegas at the beginning of the m... Read more
Eating Out

Yesterday my husband and I went on a date. It was our Valentine's Day celebration even if it was a week late. He's on a permanent night shift and works every single weekend so it's hard to find the time and a babysitter on a week day. We left th... Read more
Treadmill Torture
Wednesday, February 06, 2008      6 comments

What is your definition of hell? Mine is the 10 miles that I just spent on my treadmill. There is a major snowstorm going on here right now and the city workers are on strike so even if I wanted to go outside the roads haven't been plowed in two... Read more

I'm excited that for the first time in about 7 years I won't have "lose weight" as one of my New Year's Resolutions and I hope to never see it on my list again! What a great way to start the new year off, with only fitness goals in mind rather t... Read more
Early Christmas Present

I've officially reached my goal! The scale has been at 108 point something for a couple days now and this morning it was 108.0. What a nice Christmas present! I'm super happy, but nervous to try and maintain this week. I had a really great... Read more

I lost another pound last week and am going to try my hardest to make that happen again this week to be at my goal before the end of the year. It will be tough to get all my workouts in this week with family obligations, but I'll do my best. I w... Read more

One Christmas party down and four to go! I've been stressing a lot about having so many dinners to go over the next week. There sometimes aren't a lot of healthy options, but I did really well last night (minus a bit too much wine). I didn't e... Read more
Plan for the week of 16/12/07-22/12/07
Sunday, December 16, 2007      1 comments

I thought maybe it would be a good idea to put together an exercise plan for the week and get it in writing. December can get so crazy and it's always nice to have a plan. The only thing that may interfere with my plan this week is the snow. I ... Read more

I was surprised yesterday when I stepped on the scale for my daily weigh in and saw the number 110. I weighed myself this morning and was happy to see that it still said 110. Weight loss is such a tricky thing and it would be so nice to know exa... Read more

MTC Day 8&9
Saturday, November 10, 2007      2 comments

Two more days done, and today is a rest day so I think I'll do my long run today. I'm really frustrated with the lack of movement on the scale since I really thought I'd be seeing more results that way, especially given the amount of effort I'm... Read more
