I really need to reevaluate WHY I'm trying to lose weight. I didn't start strong when I first joined SP in March, but when the BLC began, I was doing great. Now, 6 weeks in, my mojo seems to be almost completely gone. I've steadily lost ab... Read more

Well, I finally completed my Fitness Test... My kiddos laughed at me as I did my push-ups and crunches, not encouraging. I'm glad I did the step challenge at the gym and the walk at the high school's track ALONE! Here are my sad results:... Read more

All-Or-Nothing: Not ALWAYS Good
Friday, April 11, 2014      7 comments

I've described myself in interviews and to groups as a woman with an "all-or-nothing" mindset. It's generally perceived as a positive: "if she commits, she's there all the way!" Great, right? But what about the NOTHING? Here is where the NOTHI... Read more

I really wanted to watch the series finale of "How I Met Your Mother" (disappointing at best!), so I timed my trip to the gym accordingly. I got there, did my circuit, and planted myself on a treadmill at Planet Fitness aimed at one of the CBS T... Read more
