Thursday, July 09, 2015      5 comments

I got in the C25K run/walk and did 1 hour of zumba and got my strength training in! I was famished after - at 9:30 pm - so I stopped and grabbed a grilled chicken snack wrap at Wendy's. Hold the cheese and sauce. Since I was so active, I figu... Read more

I work for a small company in a city about 35 km from where I live. Last year the company rented office space in a building in the city where I live. It was great! Closer to home, away from the boss, who can be a handful. However, it was a v... Read more

I had a session with the trainer at 10 am. We worked the chest and triceps so much that I couldn't lift my hands up to shampoo my head in the shower! I had to bend my head down. It was a killer workout. Now that we are in the "strength" phas... Read more

Wednesday, July 01, 2015      6 comments

It was just as grueling as Day 1. I decided to do Day 2 in the gym, on a treadmill. I much preferred it. I actually broke the rules (already! on day 2!) and did day 1 and 2 back to back with no rest day in between. My daughter decided to st... Read more

Time to beware of all the tiny treats people are always giving out. I will be dodging cookies and popcorn and mini chocolate bars galore. I packed 2 big waters - surprisingly some do not have - and a cereal bar. Fingers crossed that I make i... Read more

It is super discouraging to give it your all and see a 2 pound loss each week. I know that is a safe and healthy amount. I know it is going in the right direction. I just thought I worked harder than that. Whenever I do more weight training... Read more

In an attempt to eat healthier, I am trying to eat vegetarian about half the time. I was researching new vegetarian recipes and I came across khichdi. It had a bunch of weird stuff that I had never heard of - fenugreek seeds, mung beans, etc. ... Read more

After the killer workout with the trainer yesterday, I WAS SORE! I did the extra stretching that he recommended. Once later in the day and once before bed. I am still super sore today. ALL OVER!!! I have to take the dogs out for a walk ... Read more

Today was week 4 of training with a personal trainer. Today was the toughest! It was all body weight training. Using your own body weight as resistance. Therefore, having a lot of body weight was NOT an advantage! It started with burpees an... Read more
