After hurting my back, I nearly took today off from any excersize. But, after dinner I was feeling really good AND I've gotten my hands on a Fitbit and wanted to try it out - so I skipped a day of yoga camp, but I did go for a nice mile and a h... Read more

Not really. Let me begin this blog with a little info about myself since I was last active on SP. In May of last year I fell at our county park when I was with my kids & my sister and her boys on the playground equipment. Now, when I lead ... Read more

This is just gonna be a quick check in sort of blog today because I'm worn out this evening. Unfortunately, I didn't get the 8 hours of sleep I was afforded the night before. I could really tell a difference when I woke up. For the first half of... Read more

It's Thursday and I woke up feeling better than I have in a LONG time - both physically and mentally. I got a full 8 hours of sleep last night (first time in so long I can't even remember) and WOW does it help your body to recover from a full da... Read more

Starting over... again.

Yesterday I logged on to SP for the first time in over a year. Obviously, I'm not where I wanted to be with my health and fitness. The winter months nearly defeated me this time around. My anxiety/depression issues were worse than they have be... Read more
I weighed in today

Why do I put so much focus on what the scales tell me? I know that it's not the only way to measure progress, this isn't my first rodeo, I know how getting fit works. Yet I still get bummed when I step onto the scale for weekly weigh in. I... Read more

Tuesday, March 10, 2015      3 comments

This is how I lost 40lbs back in 2010 and how I plan to do it again! In case you aren't familiar with creating a calorie deficit, the first thing to know is that 3,500 calories = one pound. I have always liked to aim for a 7,000cal deficit each... Read more

That's my problem, well one of them anyway. You've met social drinkers? Yeah. That's me with eating. I went to a thing last night. I didn't have many calories to even play with, so I told myself to keep it light and keep it healthy. I did... at ... Read more
