I am a (very) young Grandma!
Sunday, January 04, 2015      8 comments

I guess that's what you say when you are in your early 40's and have just witnessed your grandson's birth. It was the most surreal experience, and I was completely awed by it. I must now remind myself that I have so much to live for, so muc... Read more
It works if you do it
Tuesday, April 16, 2013      3 comments

I know that this probably sounds obvious, but I'm going to write it anyway. A weight loss program works when you do it. Stay within your goal + drink your water + work out + write it down = lose weight. The problem is, I find, to actually put... Read more
Insantiy Month Two- Here we come!
Monday, August 06, 2012      3 comments

I made it through month one with little difficulty. I was able to wake up early (my alarm was set for 5:30) mostly because I loved the workouts so much. I felt good, and tried most of the time to go to bed at a decent hour. Today was day o... Read more

There is so much going on, that it would be impossible to share it all. All I can say is that I am trying to stay with the program anyway. The hardest part for me is getting my cardio in. I'm trying to wake up early and exercise in the AM. T... Read more

It's not the scale this time, but rather my brain that's stuck. Every time I get on a good track and find myself eating right, tracking, exercising I also find myself losing weight. That's not surprising, that is the way it is supposed to work... Read more
6 month update
Tuesday, November 01, 2011      2 comments

I see that it's been over 6 months since I last blogged. My family has moved into a new home, I've started a new schedule at work and my eldest daughter has started college. There have been many ups and downs in terms of my weight, and my gene... Read more
I'm actually doing it! (and becoming addicted)

I really thought that I couldn't. I thought it would be too much. I thought that I would chicken out half way through a workout. But it's really not so bad. I'm through week 1 of Turbo Fire and I am making it through the workouts with some m... Read more
Turbo Fire Commitment
Sunday, April 10, 2011      7 comments

1. I will keep moving the entire workout even if I am modifying her routine. 2. I will close (and lock?) the door to make my time mine. No phone calls, no interruptions. 3. 6 days a week is probably unrealistic right now. I'm going to comm... Read more
Next up...Turbo Fire

I finished three months of Chalean Extreme. I lost a pound or two and a total of about 5 inches. I'm proud of myself more for sticking to the routine, than for my results which were not as great as I had hoped. Of course I know that if I had ... Read more
Oops, I almost said it.
Thursday, March 31, 2011      3 comments

I noticed that lots of members on SparkPeople quote Yoda (from Star Wars) who said something like "do or don't do there is no try". I always felt that that message would encourage me NOT to do things especially if I was worried that I wouldn't ... Read more
Why I joined the Chalean Extreme 16 week challenge
Tuesday, March 08, 2011      4 comments

I joined this challenge to make sure that I would be accountable to do the things that I should be doing namely eat properly, track my food and exercise. I wish that I would be able to do that all without needing any motivation from an external... Read more
17 1/2 pounds!
Tuesday, January 25, 2011      1 comments

That's not (unfortunately) the amount of weight I've lost. It is the amount that I lifted today while doing Dead lift Rows in ChaLean Extreme. I'm only in week 2, and already I am doing things that I never thought that I could, and it feels gr... Read more
Chalean Extreme

A few weeks ago, I read a blog from a member from China that was titled something like "Insanity is on the way". I thought, "huh, insanity?" and decided to google "insanity" to understand what she was talking about. I'd heard of P90X, although... Read more
"Overweight" and loving it.
Sunday, January 09, 2011      10 comments

Thanks Ludmilla! As soon as I saw your blog title, I knew exactly what you were referring to, and was so proud of you. But, by the time that I was done posting my comment, I realized that I too should do a quick calculation. As of this mornin... Read more
I'm wearing my wedding band!
Sunday, January 02, 2011      9 comments

I know that might seem like a funny thing to get excited about, but it was one of my "mini goals". I have not been able to wear my wedding band for over 4 years, since I was pregnant with number 6. I wear my engagement ring, but just couldn't ... Read more
