Wednesday, July 18, 2012      5 comments

Something tells me I'm not going to make my goal of 10 pounds in 10 weeks. So far I've lost a whopping 1/2 pound in a month. What I'm learning is that I still have grazing issues. I've caught myself a few times this week, eating when I'm n... Read more

Last Saturday, I went to the gym at 5:30 am. Things were going well. I had already hit the treadmill for 30 minutes, and decided to do some ST. I love that all-in-one machine withe the pulleys. Anyway, I've done the same exercises for a year now... Read more
Goals for BL Summer Challenge

Lately, I have not been focused. I'm beginning to think that maybe, just maybe I'm not on a plateau, but that this is my "real" weight. I work my butt off, and track every calorie, and drop a couple of pounds, but the minute I stop working out 6... Read more

I have been using the treadmill for almost 2 years. I have fooled myself into thinking I'm in good shape because I can jog at a 12 minute-mile oace on an incline. I figure running at a 3% incline would make up for the ease of running on a belt r... Read more

So this morning I noticed that the faucet on my patio was leaking. It was drip. It was steady, and you'd never know it, but the amount of water that you lose just from a drip is crazy. I pay close to $300.00 quarterly for water and sewer. The th... Read more

Governors were touring a pink slime plant yesterday, and according to Rick Perry, the term " pink slime" should be a thing of the last, and we should call it, "finely textured ground beef". "Dude, it's beef!" And "it's leaner, and better for you... Read more

Since the holidays, I just can't find motivation. I had such an abundance, I never worried that I would run out. I've been skipping workouts, making bad choices, and over-eating. I have gained 5 pounds. It's not alot, but let's face it. First ... Read more
Doing Your Homework
Saturday, February 11, 2012      5 comments

There are some states that now require certain franchise restaurants to put the calorie and fat content of their menu items right on the menu. I know New York is one of them. But I live in Florida. To be honest, I never really cared because I ne... Read more
