Sunday, November 08, 2009      6 comments

So, in celebration of reaching 25% of my initial goal, my husband and I headed to Sports Basement for some fitness goodies. We walked away with three fun new toys! 1) Speedo nose plugs (in hot pink, natch) 2) 5 lb. hand weights to help me... Read more
Sparking at One of my Favorite Restaurants!
Sunday, November 08, 2009      6 comments

Tonight, my husband suggested we go to one of our favorite restaurants. I have not been to a restaurant in a few weeks and I was somewhat hesitant. Restaurant eating is part of what got me to this weight in the first place. But I figured, this i... Read more
To Pizza or Not to Pizza…Part II
Friday, November 06, 2009      3 comments

Yesterday, I posted the following multiple choice question to my blog: Tomorrow, I have a law journal meeting. Pizza will be served… what should I do in the face of utterly, incomprehensibly delicious pizza? a) Bring a healthy lunch a... Read more
She’s got the Beat, she’s got the Beat, she’s got the BEAT!
Friday, November 06, 2009      2 comments

Yeah, I’ve got the Beat! So, the word of the week for me has been “rhythm”. Allow me to explain. I’ve always been able to dog paddle but I’ve never really been a swimmer. So, when I signed up for swim lessons in September, I di... Read more

Today, I got the results of my Wills & Trusts midterm (pretty good) which has left me in a multiple choice kind of mood. So, I will tell you the situation and you tell me the "correct" answer. Tomorrow, I have a law journal meeting. Pizza w... Read more
Pre-Logging and Taking the Stairs
Wednesday, November 04, 2009      3 comments

Does anyone else pre-log their food; ie determining what you are going to eat and logging it before you actually eat it? I did this yesterday and it was awesome! I prelogged about 1000 calories and had enough left over to have a few snacks ... Read more
Today is only the beginning...

Today, I changed my Exercise streak from 30 minutes a week to 90 minutes a week. Even though I've been getting 90 minutes or more a week, it sure felt good to see an eight week streak on exercise. However, my desire to change my streak to a more... Read more
What am I doing wrong?
Monday, November 02, 2009      10 comments

I have been working out for the past seven weeks. I am thrilled with the results. I have very quickly reduced my cellulite and firmed significantly. I think the swimming is the most significant part of this so far and would highly recommend swim... Read more
Harrowing Body Measurements
Sunday, November 01, 2009      0 comments

I just measured my body for the first time in over three years and it was a harrowing process. First the good: 1) At least I know where I am in this process and can now measure my progress in a way that is not tethered to the scale. 2) Appa... Read more
Refraining from Greed
Saturday, October 31, 2009      0 comments

Somehow I put too many black beans in my taco bowl. While my first instinct was to enjoy the unexpected windfall and scarf them on down, I instead put them back into the fridge for a snack later. This is what I call progress! It was probably a h... Read more
My Running Trouble Goal
Friday, October 30, 2009      2 comments

My biggest running trouble is that I have asthma. I don't have the kind of asthma that makes me prone to sudden attacks. I just have difficulty breathing when I have a cold, allergies or am, you guess it, working out! My goal is to order up a ne... Read more
Why NOT Bother????
Friday, October 30, 2009      6 comments

My week started off tough. I had a huge fight with my mother on Sunday. She and I have never seen eye to eye--never had that typical loving mother-daughter relationship that I have always craved. Sometimes, my anger at her over the harsh realiti... Read more
Change of Pace!
Tuesday, October 20, 2009      0 comments

So, I started my couch to Sprint Triathlon program almost a month ago! This has been really fun and exciting so far so I am hesitant to make changes. But I've been modifying my program so much that I think I'm going to take the advice of some se... Read more
Never Say Die!
Wednesday, October 14, 2009      0 comments

Yesterday, disaster struck. I misplaced my tankini top before my swim lesson. I spent over an hour looking for it and still couldn't find it. How could I go to my lesson? All I had were old bikini tops from thinner days. I hated the idea of gett... Read more
Mild Frustration
Wednesday, December 13, 2006      0 comments

Almost finished with Fast Break and having a brilliant time of it. Have learned quite a bit more about food intake and am truly enjoying the exercise. My mild frustration comes from having a scale (really, a few scales)that can't be trusted. I a... Read more
