Sunday, January 18, 2015      1 comments

Ever had that moment when you want to both laugh and cry? I just had one while reviewing my 2014 goals blog. I had some big goals that didn't pan out. This year, I'm setting the bar a little--no, a lot-- lower this year because I need that feeli... Read more
Pondering how well I bounce...
Tuesday, May 27, 2014      1 comments

A forum conversation mentioned that rollerskating burns a ton of calories. I used to love skating but haven't tried it in at least 15 years. Just for kicks, I checked the fitness tracker. SP estimates that, for me, 45 minutes of skating would bu... Read more
Protein drink recomendations
Sunday, April 06, 2014      6 comments

After reviewing my nutrition logs, I've found that my worst binges tend to be on hectic days. It also shows that when I consume more protein in the afternoon, I do better. I work two jobs and may not eat or even carry food in the work zone and b... Read more
Greek yogurt that doesn't taste like it turned?
Sunday, December 29, 2013      6 comments

Help! I'm really trying to hop on the Greek yogurt bandwagon because it is so protein dense. Problem is, the two I've tried already (chiobani 0% and one of the fage ones) just tasted spoiled. I know you need to get used to the flavor, but... Read more

New scale trauma
Friday, October 18, 2013      4 comments

My old scale finally died a few days ago, so I broke down and bought a new one. One that, as it turns out, weighs me in at about 6 lbs more than my old one used to do. Logically, I know that my weight hasn't changed that much and that my o... Read more
Goals for week ending September 29 review and plans for upcoming week
Sunday, September 29, 2013      3 comments

This was not my finest week. In fact, I fell back into old habits by allowing stress and family drama to trigger issues. I did a fairly good job of keeping my usual nemesis, emotional eating, in check so that's a victory. Other than that, I miss... Read more

It's time to get my act back together. This is going to be a crazy busy week, including (3) 15 hour workdays. It needs to be planned ahead and accounted for to ensure my lifestyle change doesn't fall by the wayside. Goal 1: Eat at least 2 s... Read more
Anyone tried the Jazzercise Burlesque video?
Monday, August 26, 2013      3 comments

I saw it on Amazon and it sounds like a fun way to workout this winter when I just can't drag myself out into the snow. That said, I have two left feet. Has anyone tried it? If so, what did you think of it? Did it require a lot of coordination? ... Read more

My goals for my new challenge are fairly basic, but hopefully they will help me get back in the routine of living well. Since fitting in cardio and setting myself up for failure through lack of preparation are my biggest challenges, I'm focusing... Read more
