30 Day Shred level 1 Day 7 Weight: 159.8 Sleep: 6 hours 58 minutes (restless 15 times/35 minutes) I have exercised after school every day this week. The older ladies didn't stop by today, so we threw in the Shred. I grabbed some 8-lb... Read more

30 Day Shred Level 1 Day 6 Weight: 159.6 Sleep: 6 hours 22 minutes (18 x restless for a total of 41 minutes) I took yesterday off; less of a rest day and more of a "holy crap I need to finish my lesson plans" sort of day. Because of ... Read more

30 Day Shred Level 1 Day 3 I skipped yesterday, basically because I couldn't get any alone time with the computer in my workout area. The dude had gotten up early. I know it's a lame excuse, but I have a really hard time being okay with h... Read more

I have survived the first week of the holidays with so much unhealthy food that I've been afraid to look at the scale. But I'm getting back on track this week. Bought myself a new yoga mat and started the 30 Day Shred (again). I'm very sore r... Read more

I'm on a much-needed two week break from school. I did bring home a whole bunch of homework that needs to be done...IEP's, unit plans, lesson plans, activities...there are not a lot of reasonably priced (or available) resources for planning les... Read more

Seems like every December I get sick of my life and jump back on the health and fitness bandwagon. I struggle mightily to maintain my weight. Last July, I went up to Wisconsin to visit my parents for a week. They live in Door County, which is... Read more

Ten days of exercise, lost one pound. Just one. And it might not even be that much; I fluctuate a bit, especially during the more hormone-driven parts of the month. My muscles aren't aching any more, so I switched from 5-lb weights to 8 pound... Read more

I've been MIA on SP since the end of July. I keep giving up. It's a bad pattern I keep falling into. I get discouraged really easily, and, due to the hypothyroid thing, I also get fatigued really easily. I go through phases where I'm so tire... Read more

Still alternating days of strength and cardio, 50 minute sessions each. Tracking everything, trying to stay healthy. Lost a couple of pounds the first week, gained it right back. Discouraged, depressed, and tired.... Read more

So I had jumped back in to the fitness thing with both feet. I was doing well, counting calories, drinking water, staying consistent. Then Monday happened. The Dude was outside barbecuing turkey brats, and we were getting ready to sit dow... Read more

I have exercised every day so far this week, alternating weights and cardio. The scale says I lost two pounds, but I'm suspecting that it might just be water...I'm trying to remember my 8 glasses a day, and my kidneys seem to be in overdrive. ... Read more

I fell off the healthy lifestyle wagon last October. I haven't exercised, tracked my nutrition, or stepped on a scale in almost a year. Why? Medication issues, job stress, and laziness. I've been overloaded and depressed, and the scale wasn'... Read more
