Day 12 every day's better with yoga!
Tuesday, September 15, 2015      1 comments

Yoga is my guilty pleasure. I give myself credit for working out and get to relax and focus on something besides work for a bit. Tonight was a great class for me. I got some good stretching and strength training and lots of quiet meditation t... Read more

I went back to my old gym today. I switched gyms a couple of years ago to one without group fitness classes with better hours, but I do miss the camaraderie that goes along with group exercise classes. I feel less bloated and am hoping this 1... Read more

Had a great day and that includes a little exercise, eating within my calorie range and enjoying a football game with some friends. That includes successfully resisting drinks and appetizers, but it wasn't a problem at all today for a change. ... Read more

Last week I decided I had to try and get back on track. I'd been getting a little depressed over the last few months and the only way out of that for me is loosing these extra lbs. I am always depressed when I am overweight and the only way ou... Read more

Down 3 pounds and feeling pretty good. My husband brought home some delicious raspberry kringle from an out of town job today. I wasn't going to have any and then I decided that I had room in my calorie range today and if I ate an appropriate... Read more

It's day 6 and this kinder gentler diet plan is working. I'm down 3 pounds and I'm pretty sure if I had jumped back into this diet thing "full bore" like I usually do I'd be nursing sore muscles and starving with no greater results on the scale... Read more

So far so good. I haven't managed to stay on track for 5 days in quite awhile. I realize I didn't put this weight back on overnight (even though it seems like it!) and realize it won't come off overnight either. Balance has been a problem for... Read more

I stayed in my calorie range again plus took a nice 2 mile walk and lifted a few weights. I also cooked myself a nice dinner and cooked a little ahead for the next couple of days. This is pretty good for me because I haven't been feeling very ... Read more

Day 3 of staying within my calorie range. I haven't tracked regularly in quite awhile and I really believe it helps. I tracked my calories faithfully for several years while successfully maintaining a 40 pound weight loss and then just quit. ... Read more

My 52 year old body isn't tolerating the long distance running program that kept my weight under control in my mid 40's. Every time I try and run any sort of distance my sciatica acts up and I end up limping through my first 10 steps every time... Read more

Today got a little away from me but when I felt the stress building I squelched it. Lunch got a little later than I would have liked but I wasn't really hungry so that helped because I was really busy. Got a nice 25 mile run/walk in after ... Read more

So I've completed two weeks of the Stress Busting Challenge and I think it was a great idea. I've identified one large area of stress and that was eating poorly during my work day. I would either skip meals, eat power bars at my desk or grab s... Read more
