Let’s get straight to it: I’m up 0.2 lbs. SO annoying. I have had the best week. I exercised. A lot. I ate decent. I even resisted ice cream last night. Whatever. Keep calm. Carry on. Shannon wrote this earlier this week, I so relate. Timex – check. Gruve – check. Heading to the gym.

Okay, I did it. You may have seen my tweets where I was afraid to step on the scale this morning. When I got on the scale earlier this week, it was UGLY. Downright hideous. I chug-chug-CHUGGED water last night. So much, in fact, that I woke up THREE times to groggily make my way […]

I am down 1.8 lbs today. I am a little disappointed that it isn’t more, but I will take it! I did fairly well with the eating all week long, but those damn cookies that my mother-in-law sent home keep rearing their ugly heads. Fucking cookies. I got my butt to the gym again yesterday […]

Well, well… Is it really this time again, ALREADY?? Overall, it hasn’t been a bad week… I have been tracking my foods using SparkPeople. I have overindulged with cookies (the in-laws sent them home with the kids Sunday – eek!), but I have been counting them and making adjustments. I have been tracking my exercise […]

Obviously, I really sucked this past week. I was in a HORRIBLE funk and did not even log any miles. Crap!! I did More Workouts last night and played an hour of racquetball with my husband this morning. Holy crap is that an awesome workout. I was totally breathing harder than I do when I […]

I kept the EAS Active at medium intensity today because Christy was saying there were lunges and lunges and lunges, oh my!! Well, I am glad I did… I thought yesterday was easy, so this was much better. I like the side lunges, HATE the forward lunges, my right knee feels like it is going […]

I made my big re-debut at the gym this morning and it felt damn good! I set my alarm to wake up at 7, but I was tired and hit snooze. Naughty, I know. The twins had baseball until 10:45am, but child watch at the Y is open until noon. I took them to child […]

My husband’s parents came and picked the kids up for the afternoon, so it was the perfect time for me to get my fat ass back to the gym. Can I tell you how much I hate midday gym workouts?? It felt good to be back (sort of), I just need to figure out a […]

Just checking in! It’s been awhile since I have posted on my personal blog! I have been down for the count lately! Seems like I have been sick for ages now -took antibiotics last week, but they didn’t work. I guess I need to try something else. Remember my injury mid-Shred? Well, it is still […]

I’m not going to lie to you… I am going through a real rocky point in my marriage right now. I won’t go into any of the details, but I have been married for over 9 years and we have been through some doozies. This is one of the toughest periods so far. I have […]
