I guess diet and exercise really does work! I'm down 9 lbs. in 2 weeks just by eating 1200 calories 6 days a week (the 7th is a free day), and running/walking an hour a day. With a little strength training thrown in there too. I'm blown away by ... Read more
Running + Strength = HURT!
Wednesday, June 06, 2012      1 comments

I've been doing good running every day, but yesterday I did a lower body strength workout and today I was absolutely shot on the treadmill. I could barely run for 2 min. at a time. That was really discouraging after running for 12 min. straight ... Read more

I'm so glad I decided to make Sundays my rest/splurge days! Friday and Saturday all I could think about were the hot dogs and chips that I was going to have at a BBQ today. I kept telling myself all I had to do was wait 2 more days… one more day... Read more

I am so sore today! But it feels good. Yesterday I managed to walk/run 3.5 mi on the treadmill in 60 min. When my husband told me that 3.1 mi. was a 5k I got so excited! I decided to make it a personal goal to do just a tiny bit better every ... Read more

Well, I really am going to do it now. I know I've said it before, but this is it. After watching 7 seasons of Biggest Loser over the past 2 months I've decided that I can do it too. About a month ago I started walking/jogging on the treadmill fo... Read more

Good Tired
Tuesday, May 10, 2011      2 comments

I am exhausted, but it's a good kind. I exercised hard yesterday and today so my muscles are feeling the effects of it. This is a way better tired than what comes from sitting around all day!... Read more

Not that anyone really wants to know, but I'm fairly certain I have it. Woe is me if I drink too much caffeine or eat an overly large meal. My bowels are just a little too sensitive and it ruins the day for me as it prevents me from getting thin... Read more
Back on the wagon...again...

Well, it's been a couple of years but I'm back! The good news is that I'm almost exactly where I left off so I haven't gained any weight, the bad news is that if I had stuck with Spark back when I started I'd be at my goal weight by now. Oh well... Read more

A Couple Months Later

I go through phases all the time, and it's all or nothing. Well, it's been nothing for a while now as far as staying on my weight loss plan. It really doesn't help that I'm anemic and if I don't take my iron strictly every day then it catches up... Read more
Off The Wagon

So the grandparents have come and gone last weekend. I gained a pound, I'm surprised it's not more. We love having them but our eating habits really get turned upside down when they come. They come bearing boxes of sugary goodies and every other... Read more

Last Monday Hubby and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary by sending our kids to their grandparents house, getting take-out, and renting a couple movies. I ordered a chili burrito with a few tortilla chips, I usually stuff myself with the ... Read more
5 lbs!
Monday, June 08, 2009      4 comments

I did it! I lost my first 5 lbs! I haven't been starving myself, just counting calories and trying to make wiser decisions. And I haven't been killing myself with exercise either, just moving more and enjoying working in my garden. When I stop l... Read more
