3 weeks left!
Monday, March 25, 2013      8 comments

Yes, I am counting DOWN the weeks of Insanity! I really like what it's doing for my body, but I am in a constant stage of tiredness and soreness. The soreness means I'm working my body to the max, which is good. However, the tiredness makes m... Read more
Whew, tired and sore!
Sunday, March 24, 2013      6 comments

My Insanity Max Interval Circuit kicked my butt this morning! My abs are sooo sore and if I bend down, my hamstrings are sore, too! I'm tired! We had a Youth Spaghetti Feed at church so I was helping out for four hours today. So betwee... Read more
Cardio recovery my fanny!
Saturday, March 23, 2013      6 comments

Today was a "light day" of Insanity. It was the cardio recovery day. I'll agree it wasn't as intense for cardio, but it really worked muscles!! My hamstrings, abs and triceps are already sore so it will only get more so by morning! ... Read more
Lots of ups....literally!
Friday, March 22, 2013      11 comments

The first "up" was my oldest daughter signed with a university to play soccer! It's only 40 minutes from home so far enough away for independence, but close enough for security! Go Warriors! The other "up" was the scale. I knew it would... Read more
I am so sore!!
Wednesday, March 20, 2013      6 comments

I made it through yesterday's celebrations. I cried, the daughter cried, even the husband got a bit teary. I ended up doing my first Insanity Max workout. It was the Max Cardio. The moves weren't "hard," but it was intense and I am SO ... Read more
18 years of memories...

Eighteen years ago, today, I gave birth to a beautiful little girl. Today that little girl is officially "an adult." My oldest turns 18 today ... Read more
I've had a blond moment, for a long time!
Monday, March 18, 2013      9 comments

I am such a blond! I used to be a natural blond and now I have a little help to hid the mature blond, but I still can use that excuse. Those of you that use the other goal tracker may have a goal that has a + in the squares. I just real... Read more
I'm not Irish, even on St. Patrick's Day.
Sunday, March 17, 2013      10 comments

When I was in my 20's I was Irish one day a year...on St. Patrick's Day! Now that I'm "mature," and not wanting to use those calories for such trivial pursuits, I'm not a practicing Irishwoman anytime! I'm a German/Swede married to a Norwegian... Read more
Lunch with SparkFriends!
Saturday, March 16, 2013      8 comments

I was able to meet two of my SparkFriends for lunch at Panera today. We were expecting more, but it was fun anyway! We were hoping to Skype with another SparkFriend that is in Africa, but unfortunately the people with the computers couldn't co... Read more
Lost again!
Friday, March 15, 2013      9 comments

I lost about a pound this week. I'm not trying, but I'd be lying if I said I wasn't happy about it! I'm right in the middle of my range! ... Read more
I'm not sure how much "recovery" I'll get doing my "recovery week."
Wednesday, March 13, 2013      11 comments

This is my recovery week for Insanity. We don't push as hard, but I still sweat up a storm! The movements are very precise and let's just say the burn is insane! At one point I was just going to do a couple of days and then jump into the max ... Read more
I ate over my calories, but it's ok!
Monday, March 11, 2013      10 comments

This was the first time I ate over my calories in "forever." I ate well, but I was really hungry today. The only "not so healthy" food I ate was a few Tostitos with cheese, aka nachos, two small pretzels covered with almond bark and a small bl... Read more
Sense of smell?!
Sunday, March 10, 2013      7 comments

This may sound strange, but has anyone else's sense of smell gotten stronger once they started eating better? I've noticed that I find smells are stronger and I notice smell more. Strange I know, but just wondering if anyone else has noticed t... Read more
Feeling good!
Saturday, March 09, 2013      7 comments

The scale may be up, but I feel great! I did my workout of 40 minutes of cardio and another 20 minutes of cardio abs. It was tough, but worth it. I got another 20 or so minutes of walking in while running errands with the husband. Overall, i... Read more
The scale went up!
Friday, March 08, 2013      7 comments

I knew it was coming and I was mentally preparing myself, but it still "plays" with the mind...the numbers in the scale went up. Not by much, a little over 2 lbs., but still. I've been dedicated to my Insanity workouts and am starting to... Read more
