Day 16: Aaaaaargh!!!! Not "getting it"
Monday, June 16, 2008      5 comments

What, you ask? Well, the fact that this is supposed to be a "lifestyle change". My brain/body doesn't really want to accept that. Or maybe it's my heart that's not there yet. Okay, if you're wondering what the heck I'm talking about, it's ... Read more
Day 14: SPLURGE in all senses
Saturday, June 14, 2008      4 comments

Heh. BIG splurge day today. Got in the bare minimum of core, upper and lower exercises to satisfy challenge requirements. Didn't PLAN to walk, but wound up walking a fair bit later in the day while at Canada's Wonderland, walking from line-up to... Read more

Also, the 13th. emoticon Okay, so that doesn't really matter. What matters is that I'm finding myself hard-p... Read more
Day 12: Tickers, progress, sunshine!
Thursday, June 12, 2008      5 comments

Hmph. That low, low, looooooooow weight a couple days ago mustabin a mirage. Really. It's gone. But the good news is, the scale says I _am_ down. To 207.5. Yaaaaaaaaaaay! That's just under my starting weight. Since this is 2 separate ... Read more
Day 11: Nothing to say today ...
Wednesday, June 11, 2008      3 comments

It's been a long day. Didn't weigh in at all - just did my weights workout and got out of the gym this morning, rushed through getting dressed, packed lunch, and headed off to YAS (yet Another seminar). All day again. Walked home from 3 st... Read more
Day 10: I should whine more often!
Tuesday, June 10, 2008      4 comments

It apparently helps me lose weight. :) No, I'm not saying how much. You can all just sit there and wonder. So there! :) But I was HAPPY when I weighed in this morning. Had planned on light cardio, but was enthused into doing serious ca... Read more
Day 9: I'm getting bored ...
Monday, June 09, 2008      2 comments

Mainly because nothing is _happening_ ... the inches and the pounds are still here. Weight isn't budging despite exercise and staying within calories and drinking gallons of water. Okay, whine down, treat to go. (If you parsed that, you'... Read more
Day 8: Not enough calories ...
Sunday, June 08, 2008      4 comments

So, today was another rest day. Yay. Just walked to and from the train station. And the third day in a row where I sat in a seminar all day. Ate a good breakfast, took a healthy (but light) lunch with me so I didn't carb-out and fall asleep... Read more
Day 7 Part II (Yes, I _did_ complete the workout)
Sunday, June 08, 2008      2 comments

I did. After I got back. Got back late, had just enough time to rush to the gym downstairs, do my biceps curls and triceps kickbacks and pushdowns, then did some lateral raises and finished up with a couple more core abs/lower-back exercis... Read more
Day 7: Part I (Half-done)
Saturday, June 07, 2008      1 comments

The subject line says it all: I managed to get half my full-body workout done - so far, I've done legs, back and chest. This evening, after the seminar, I'll do biceps, triceps and shoulders. And some ab work. And some cardio. I also plan ... Read more
Day 6: I don't know how everyone is keeping up!!!
Friday, June 06, 2008      3 comments

Seriously, I _don't_ know how you're all managing to keep up with this challenge, especially if you've got a day job and/or kids to deal with. Where do you get the TIME to work out, plan your meals, AND do all the recording/blogging? :) I w... Read more
Day 5: YAAAAY - It's a rest day
Thursday, June 05, 2008      5 comments

Really. Truly. A REST day! :) It felt soooo good not to go to the gym today. I slept in. Lazed around. Watched a movie on my laptop. Felt soooo good to reclaim those 2+ hours I've been spending in the gym all week! :) Probably gained a pound bec... Read more
Day 4: Are we there yet?
Wednesday, June 04, 2008      6 comments

Sigh. I so did NOT want to work out this morning. I think 5 days cardio in a row (at 60 minutes+ each day) has me wiped out. But I _did_ it anyway. And, amazingly, it was AMAZING! I went at a higher intensity on both the recumbent bike... Read more
Day 3: It's all about choices
Tuesday, June 03, 2008      5 comments

... it really is. I know I _chose_ to eat at McDonald's last night. I also know I won't be making that choice again any time soon. Why not? Because this morning, when I weighed myself, I was _still_ at 210! Which means, if I hadn't given in to t... Read more
Day 2: Bloggin' the obvious
Monday, June 02, 2008      4 comments

Went to the gym. Worked out HARD. And it still feels great! My weight wasn't UP - 210.5, which was okay, given that I'd just had breakfast, as well as 16 oz of water before the workout. It feels good to know that it's been over a week... Read more
