I love my heart rate monitor!
Thursday, July 07, 2011      9 comments

So I am thrilled that I finally got a heart rate monitor! I've been working out with it for about a week now and I LOVE it! Before I had it, I was using Spark's calorie counter to determine how many calories I was burning per workout. For each 3... Read more
EPIC song!

So I picked Sober by Kelly Clarkson. It's not a well known song, but everytime I hear it I feel empowered. To me, the song speaks of re-birth and growth and transformation and that is exactly what my journey is. The song speaks of taking those f... Read more

Got my SPARK back!
Monday, June 27, 2011      9 comments

Today was a GREAT day! I haven't felt this good since I originally joined Spark months ago! I lost my spark after a month of no weight loss, minimal exercise, and just an overall self-destructive funk. I knew that I needed to get back on track a... Read more
Plan for the next leg of EPIC and AFTER pic
Saturday, June 25, 2011      5 comments

This leg of EPIC was not what I had hoped it would be. I seemed to really struggle with weight loss this leg and I have a couple of ideas as to what the cause was. 1) I really believe that my BP meds and lower heart rate were a factor. I've been... Read more
Lack of motivation and laziness blah blah blah
Wednesday, June 22, 2011      11 comments

I don't know what's wrong with me. I can't seem to get motivated lately. I lost weight earlier this month, but have managed to gain it back plus 2 lbs!! I seem to want the results without wanting to put forth any effort which I know is ridiculo... Read more

I really, really enjoyed our vacation to Missouri! I am so glad that we got to go spend time with the family, especially since Reiko's dad has cancer. He is such a sweet mild, mannered man who just wants to make everyone happy. The weather ther... Read more
I can't do it. Oh YES you can!
Friday, June 10, 2011      11 comments

If you're like me, you don't necessarily like working out and you get bored easily. I try to make this easier for me by changing up my workouts everytime I exercise. Sometimes that's just not enough. Sometimes I just don't want to work out. On d... Read more

First I want to start off by thanking everyone for the sweet and supportive comments that were left on Part 1 of this blog. I was really taken aback by all the love that y'all showed me. I was even surprised by who the support was coming from. I... Read more

I have a lot going on and I need to get my head straight. This is really more for me, than for anyone else, to get my thoughts and feelings and ideas organized so that I can make sense of them all. I've been struggling for a while, but have bee... Read more
Did you see Rachael Ray's Weight Loss show this morning?
Monday, June 06, 2011      11 comments

Did anyone see Rachael Ray this morning with Jorge Cruise and his book, "The Belly Fat Diet"? I saw last week when she had "The Carb Lovers Diet", but I didn't pay to much attention because I'm not really a carb lover. Jorge's book caught my att... Read more

So we came to my mom's today, so Reiko could put together a couple of dressers for her. I knew that I had cardio to get in today and I wasn't quite sure what would happen. Surprisingly, I found myself working out while Reiko was on assembly duty... Read more
I'm no quitter!
Tuesday, May 31, 2011      12 comments

I have high blood pressure and have not been consistent with taking my medicine. Mostly denial (I'm to young!), but also a little out of sight, out of mind! Since I've embarked on this journey, I knew that I had to let it affect all aspects of m... Read more
Time to get out of my comfort zone!
Sunday, May 29, 2011      5 comments

So for this next leg of EPIC we're encouraged to try a new workout. I've been toying with idea of running and taking a gym class. I've been toying with the idea because I don't know if I'm ready. I see people running all the time and I just don'... Read more
