This was such a lazy, lazy week for me, well in terms of exercise. I started the Bootcamp but only did 3 days. I went to sleep late, ate a lot and just sat around. But guess what? The scale was so kind to me. I lost 2 pounds. How in the h... Read more

Weight: 148 Waist: 30.5 I don't have the patience to do all of the measurements. These are the most important to me. My goal for this challenge is to lose about 5 more pounds and 2 inches from my waist. After the challenge, I'm aimin... Read more
Calorie Conundrum
Sunday, March 29, 2009      3 comments

Wow has it been hard to stick to the designated 1200-1550 calories. Everyday I find myself going 200-500 calories over the limit. I know that I could reach my goal with much more ease if I would just stop eating past that number, but I really ... Read more
Getting motivated again
Sunday, March 08, 2009      1 comments

Somehow, about 3 weeks ago I completely stopped EVERYTHING - no cardio, no strength training, no nutritional guidelines. Again, I'm trying to restart. It's extremely hard to get going again. This is especially true about true for my eating. I... Read more

I'm still focused on completing a 5k in the spring, but I've become more realistic. My initial plan was to run the entire race, but after having a difficult week regarding running I've changed it up a bit. I'm such a perfectionist that I'm alw... Read more

Still the same - I hate the scale but love the program
Tuesday, January 13, 2009      0 comments

162's been like a week and the scale hasn't moved. I feel stuck. As a result, I just dropped my caloric intake down a bit to 1200-1300. That's in range with what SparkPeople recommended. It's not bad either. I find that I eat a l... Read more

Monday, January 12, 2009      3 comments

Wow...these workouts are getting a bit intense. I started with today's challenge video - that was tough. My legs were in pain...does seem like something for an out of shape person like myself, but I finished the video and it felt good. Next I... Read more

Day 3 - Still Trying
Tuesday, January 06, 2009      1 comments

It's day 3 and I'm so ready to give up. The scale is not moving fast enough for me. I'm tired of being the same weight that I was last week. Maybe I'm being unrealistic, but I was always the type of person who could lose weight really easily.... Read more
Day 2 on Bootcamp
Monday, January 05, 2009      2 comments

It's day 2 on bootcamp, but about day 8 on SparkPeople. I'm getting so frustrated because I think that I have been working hard watching my calories, sometimes my carbs and exercising...and all I've lost is 1.5 pounds. It's very discouraging. ... Read more
