Things have me down lately. I feel like the last two months have been spent ceaselessly exercising and counting calories. I haven't done much else. Then bad things happen, like the Dude comes home with Domino's...and I'm starving and I love p... Read more

I haven't posted anything in a while, but I have been doing 60 minute workouts alternating days between Leslie and Jillian. So far, I'm still not skinny (or even skinnier). But I have noticed that it's become tricky to shave my legs in the sho... Read more

Another exercise routine adjustment. I found a five-mile Leslie video. I'm alternating days between the five mile walk and Jillian's NMTZ. The scale actually said one pound lighter yesterday. Maybe this combination will do the trick, at leas... Read more

So far this summer, I've managed to gain four pounds. It's very discouraging. I went to the doctor yesterday, explained my diet and exercise regimen, and he seemed to be confused as to why I was still gaining weight. He wanted to cut down the... Read more

Oh, today is a challenge. I did not get a good sleep last night, and today it seems like everything is getting on my nerves. When two educators are on break at the same time, there is a little too much togetherness, I think. Especially when b... Read more

I struggle with depression. So does my significant other, but I don't think even he knows how severe mine is. I take an antidepressant, which keeps me at a functioning level, but it's still a struggle sometimes. Things get bad around PMS time... Read more

Last week I ordered a couple of Jillian dvd's off Amazon (used=cheap). One of them was 6 Week Six Pack, since Workout 1 was on youtube, but Workout 2 wasn't. I was curious. Workout 1 barely has me even breaking a sweat, so I kind of wanted mo... Read more

I have an exercise-related injury. Ouch. I think it was the sumo squats that did it...I was trying to push myself and I do believe I pushed a bit too hard. I pulled something in the hip area. By dinnertime yesterday all I could do was lurch ... Read more

Did the hour-long workout three days in a row. Yesterday I did NMTZ, ten minutes of yoga, and mowed the lawn. Then I went out and inhaled a huge amount of spaghetti arrabiata with my mom and dad. Not the best choice, I know. I only ate half ... Read more

It's Father's Day, and I'm going to spend the evening with my folks. I'm glad. The Dude just lost his stepdad, and he's not close with his natural father. I am grateful that I have a dad in my life, and grateful that I can still celebrate fat... Read more

I have switched my exercise video again...back to No More Trouble Zones. This is an hour workout, as opposed to the 30 DS which is only 27 minutes. All strength training: dumbbell and bodyweight exercises. It's kind of painful, but I feel lik... Read more

It's muggy and gross here in the Chicago area, and we are all sitting tight waiting for a major storm to hit later this afternoon. I'm trying to hold off on running the A/C as long as possible (and enjoying low utility bills for a little bit). ... Read more

Tuesday I had a very productive day. I did the 30DS with the 8-lb weights, 10 minutes of beginner yoga, and I walked two miles through my subdivision. At around 4 pm my throat started to hurt, and by dinner time, I was a wreck. whatever virus... Read more
