Confessions
Thursday, March 25, 2010      7 comments

Sometimes I feel like I'm some how a fraud, that I'm not living up to the promise of the healthy lifestyle--especially the last few weeks. This week I've sort of gotten back on track with the fitness. I went to the fitness center on Monday and... Read more
Tired but Succesful
Monday, March 22, 2010      3 comments

Well, I went to the gym. I came very close to not going, I confess. I really didn't want to go. I could go tomorrow, my inner brat said (to borrow the term from 41HealthyCindy); I'm tired. But really I just really, really, really didn't want... Read more
Exercise Adjustment?
Friday, March 19, 2010      6 comments

I confess, I'm getting really discouraged when it comes to cardio. With strength training, I see progress--fairly quick progress at that, as I have been slowly increasing the amount of weight I can lift etc. With flexibility training, I can se... Read more
On a Lighter Note....
Thursday, March 18, 2010      3 comments

Borrowed from Saasha17 because it sounded like fun... 1. What did you eat for breakfast? ** Today, nothing, because I had my yearly doctor's check up today, which meant fasting for blood work. Most days when I eat breakfast I've been hav... Read more
Food, marketing, and laws--how to encourage healthy food consumption?
Tuesday, March 16, 2010      4 comments

As I'm getting ready to cook lunch, I noticed that our canola oil is labeled "0 Trans fats." This confused me. Trans fats are partially hydrogenated unsaturated fats--basically taking an unsaturated, relatively healthy fat (like canola oil or o... Read more
Confessions of a Former Skinny Girl: AKA Lessons in What Not To Do
Thursday, March 11, 2010      4 comments

When I was younger, I was one of those girls/women that I know many of you hate--the kind who could eat just about anything and never seem to put on any weight. I didn't watch what I ate. I didn't consider myself especially active, though in r... Read more
Baby Steps
Monday, March 08, 2010      5 comments

I posted this on a team message board and decided to share it here as well. Baby steps are definitely my approach to a healthier lifestyle, though that doesn't come easily to me. I have to fight against this little voice inside me that say... Read more
Swimsuit Dillemna
Monday, March 08, 2010      7 comments

I could use some advice..... My parents and my brother and his wife were talking about a vacation that my parents planned this summer with my niece, and got talking about whether or not my niece would need a new swimsuit. Mom mentioned tha... Read more
Healthier me?
Saturday, March 06, 2010      3 comments

I wish I had a brilliant idea of what to blog about today, but instead I'm borrowing a question that Yoovie posted on her blog.... What have I done today for a healthier me? I mean, there are many things I maybe should have done but ha... Read more
My RealAge
Tuesday, March 02, 2010      4 comments

According to www.realage.com I'm not actually 34.... I'm only 32.6. Which is a lot better score than I had gotten on a another on line healthy assessment I had done recently (unfortunately, I can't remember the name of it of... Read more

I confess I feel a bit... sheepish. Wed. I got out my Wii Fit and did some lighter intensity exercises than normally. I stopped doing the Wii regularly mostly because according to sparks I can burn in 20 minutes on the elliptical what would ta... Read more

I did the math. If I work out my normal schedule all week AND do yoga, I'll be able to get my 1000 minutes for February. Except I feel really crummy today. I was starting to feel under the weather last night, woke up last night sneezing... Read more
