Well, as much as I was dreading having to break the news to some of my co-workers that their jobs were being changed from full time to part time, at least it would have been done today. But no, our corporate leaders are now telling us to do it... Read more

I step on the scales this morning...199!! Woohoo!! Finally below that 200 pound barrier! Feeling good! The day progresses...I start to feel something...not sure what. I start thinking about what's bothering me...not eating in response t... Read more
Stability ball
Saturday, January 17, 2009      5 comments

I can't believe I've only just begun using a stability ball. Where in the world have I been? It has added another dimension to my workouts.....just love it for the core exercises. I did the bootcamp workout for core today then added another... Read more

I couldn't believe it was 10 below zero when I went in to work this morning! I'm not crazy about this weather.....and now they're calling for snow all weekend. I just keep telling myself, "Spring will be here before you know it!" I think I'l... Read more
50 pounds!!
Wednesday, January 14, 2009      7 comments

I can't believe I almost overlooked an important milestone because I was so focused on a different goal. When I weighed in today, I was down to 201 pounds. Now I've been eyeing that 200 pound marker, just itching to break through that barrier.... Read more

Just finished watching the show tonight. I really enjoy the contestants this season. So far none of the scheming and nastiness of the last season. I think it's amazing how hard some of these people are working. I can't imagine being ab... Read more

A lot of tension at work woman yelling at one of the others. Part of my job is to talk to the employees when something like this happens, so I talked to the woman who initiated it, she argued with me about the incident (I witnessed ... Read more

...I never would have imagined I would be doing this bootcamp and enjoying it. When I first watched today's video, I thought "oh no, I'll never be able to actually do that." But I gamely replayed the video to attempt to do it...and I did!! Th... Read more
It's over...
Friday, January 09, 2009      3 comments vacation, that is. I've got to go back to work today! I close today so I don't have to go in until noon, so that did give me time to get my workouts in and do the bootcamp, plus I'll walk for 15-20 minutes on my lunch break. I've alread... Read more
Oh my gosh...

I had a really pleasant experience today. When I'm working, I have to wear button front black. Today, at home, I had a cute little pale blue pullover long sleeve T shirt type top on. I glanced at myself when I walked ... Read more
Day 4...luv!!
Wednesday, January 07, 2009      2 comments

Today was day 4 of the bootcamp...loved this one. I'm always looking for new exercises for the core, these were good! For some reason, when I'm doing strength training (which I thoroughly enjoy, by the way), I always find myself more drawn to ... Read more

My heart just went out to the contestants tonight when they had their first weigh in. To see so publicly what you've hidden from for so long would be extremely difficult. While I felt such compassion for them, I also had a tremendous amount of... Read more
Weight gain...
Monday, January 05, 2009      7 comments

Okay, that was kind of a trick...the weight gain I'm talking about is Oprah's, not mine. I watched her show today---she talked about gaining 40 pounds, about feeling depressed, asking herself how she could have let this happen. The whole time ... Read more
New You (new me) 1
Sunday, January 04, 2009      5 comments

Just finished the first workout...found it to be enjoyable. Hadn't done any kickboxing workouts, but the dancing must be good prep for this type of workout...was able to get through it without any problems. I'm looking forward to this challeng... Read more soda?

It seems like everyone is suggesting we give up soda altogether. I drink diet Pepsi and I like it. I don't think it's a trigger for me (I know it isn't) and I've cut back my consumption drastically. A few years ago, it was nothing for me to d... Read more
