Body Fat Measurements
Monday, August 08, 2016      3 comments

I got asked a question on how I calculate my body fat percentage on one of my blogs. I will explain my methodology. This will require some maths, but nothing too scary! First, let's talk about body fat measurements. There's basically... Read more
Sprint Once in a While
Monday, August 08, 2016      3 comments

This morning I got up and completed a 30 minute HIIT workout on the elliptical. I have had good success using the Beatburns Elliptical Trainer app in the past, so I fired that up. As I tend towards laziness, the app is almost as good as a pers... Read more
Whole 30 Style
Sunday, August 07, 2016      2 comments

My clean eating style is closest to Whole 30: meats, veggies and fruits as close to their natural form as possible. The main deviation I take from Whole 30 is I eat cottage cheese and yogurt. Since I need 90-100g of protein with my activity le... Read more

A Night Out and A Practice Run
Thursday, August 04, 2016      2 comments

Last night my husband went out to eat. We don't like big crowds on the weekend, so we have 'date night' earlier in the week when it's quieter. I got a flyer from one of our local restaurants for a 3 course meal special, so we decided to go. ... Read more
Rest Day
Wednesday, August 03, 2016      1 comments

I thought I skimped on my strength training workout a couple of days ago, but my muscles are still sore, so I did better than I thought. As expected, I got a slight rise in my body weight - BUT - my bodyfat reading is down. This is what I want... Read more

Back to Primal
Monday, August 01, 2016      4 comments

Yesterday my husband and I spent all day planting shrubs and flowers in our yard, so I got in some squats, bends, and lifting heavy pots. I'm taking today as a rest day. I feel fatigued, so it's time to take a rest. I went back to the bas... Read more
Lifting Heavy Things
Sunday, July 31, 2016      8 comments

Everyone has a health/fitness vice. Something that we know we should do, but don't do. For some people, the Friday donuts are too tempting to resist. Others just can't say stop at one slice of pizza. Many don't get enough regular exercis... Read more
End of Week Recap #3
Saturday, July 30, 2016      4 comments

Week 3 down! It's weird. About 4 weeks ago before I buckled up and got to work on myself, I was plagued with self-doubt. "Maybe I screwed myself up for good this time." "Maybe I can't lose weight again." Pfft. Now I'm like, "I shou... Read more
Can A Low-Carb Diet Be Restarted? Yes!
Friday, July 29, 2016      2 comments

As I'm heading into the weekend, I'm feeling great! I'm on week 3 of my low-carb reboot, and things are looking fine. I have read that some people find restarting a low-carb diet to be harder and/or slower than the first time. The origina... Read more
My Diet and Health
Thursday, July 28, 2016      8 comments

I'm posting this blog for the purpose of referencing it. One of my pet peeves is when people tell or imply that I am following an unhealthy diet. So next time that happens, I'm just going to link to this blog because I don't want to repeat mys... Read more
