Heading back to the gym (YAY!!!!!!!!!)
Saturday, September 13, 2008      0 comments

No more excuses. My gym closed September 2007 and I thought I would work out at home. Didn't really happen. I've signed up for another gym with locations in the building in which I work. There are locations near home too, so no more excuses.... Read more

Have been stuck at the same weight, give or take a couple of pounds for at least a couple of months. It's not going to wear me down. I'm finally going to get down to some serious calorie counting and will make sure to do some type of workout 5... Read more

Instead of taking spinning twice each week, I've decided to take spinning on Mondays (my favorite instructor) and on Fridays take the step class. I will make this change starting Monday. If I can work the weights around it, I will also start t... Read more

Have entered a bikini challenge with the Food Exchange Team and it will go a long way to keep me focused on a daily basis. This involves taking a "before" picture (and stats) by this weekend and an "after" picture at the end of the challenge (... Read more

Have been at the same weight give or take a pound for about a month now. It's NOT going to drive me nutzzzzzzzzz. Starting today (Thursday, 1/25/07) I am not doing any strength training, just cardio every day. I am also dropping fruit for... Read more
Start with Trainer in February?
Saturday, January 20, 2007      1 comments

Considering hiring a trainer starting in February for 12 weeks (twice each week) but cost may be a problem ($70/session). We'll see. I'd really love to workout with her (she's quite muscular) and we have a good rapport). She showed me some ba... Read more

Wednesday, December 20, 2006      0 comments

Finally got back to the strength training workouts and absolutely love them. The strength training classes were fine to get me back into the right mindset but weren't challenging enough for me. I guess they're structured more toward someone wh... Read more

Did a strength training workout today at lunch. First time in quite a while. Worked legs, back and shoulders – 3 sets each but the workout took too long for a lunch hour (65 min., including 7 min. on the elliptical as a warmup) but not includ... Read more
Today's weigh in and measurements
Thursday, November 30, 2006      1 comments

My weight today is 177.6. It's 3.9 pounds less than last week and I'll have to wait until next week to see if I can hang onto the loss since most of it was lost to a stomach ailment after Thanksgiving. It's been a LONG time since I was und... Read more
Goal Weight
Tuesday, November 28, 2006      0 comments

I'm starting to feel "too light". It might be because of my intestinal difficulties after Thanksgiving dinner that caused me to lose 7 pounds in two days. Before I change my target weight of 135, I'm going to work on building serious muscle. ... Read more

Kim (co-worker) came over today to say hello. I asked her what she was doing (exercise) over the long weekend. I've been trying to encourage her for a few months to get consistent exercise – she was paying for a gym membership (in the building... Read more
