Wednesday, October 01, 2014      7 comments

These evening walks could become a habit. Yesterday evening I grabbed one of my twins and took a mile long walk with her. It was great to talk to her and hear about some of the things she loves about fall. She especially loves the smell of le... Read more

Yesterday was busy! I got up and took a 4 1/2 mile walk on my favorite route - though I took it backwards from normal to take advantage of plenty of streetlights before the sun was up. When I got back, I did my 15 crunches plus full pushups an... Read more

I did things backwards this morning. All week I had been doing the outside stuff first and then the inside. Today I started inside and then went outside. Since I didn't want to start cold with my crunches, I climbed up and down the steps 6 ti... Read more

Uh, yes, I'm definitely an overachiever. I'm sore from yesterday's pyramid challenge workout ... but begging more more soreness! I switched up the exercises but still did the pyramid with 3 strength moves today. I kept the required crunches i... Read more

I think I might be an overachiever. This week in the BLC, we've been challenged to a pyramid workout using 1 strength-training move - crunches. First day starts with 25 reps in the first set, then 25, 15, 10, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 in the sets tha... Read more

For the past month and a half I have been very consistent about keeping track of my food and staying within my calorie range. And then there was last night. After recording dinner, I realized I was still a whole meal short of my calorie range!... Read more
Getting back to the new normal

Last night at my friend's house reminded me of how bad it feels to overeat. The food was already dished up when I got to the table, and it was all delicious. Yes, I ate dessert, but I realized how full I was and didn't finish it. Out to... Read more

The weather has been way too nice to do cardio anywhere but outside, but I know the cooler weather is on the way. I've been seeing lots of posts of different exercise videos, and I would love to try them....later! So this is where I'm saving t... Read more

This morning I rose early to great a dreary, rainy day. I skipped my normal walk since I was planning on hiking with my oldest this morning - she's preparing to go on a backpacking trip in a couple weeks. When I got her up an hour before depar... Read more
