The scale is going down!

...and since we should all be looking for changes in our bodies beyond the scale when we are working out... I can also see some definition coming to my legs. Yay! I made sure to watch my carb, calorie, and salt intake over the weekend and to get on my bike each day. Last night … Continue reading The scale is going down!

What are we encouraging?

Neither 'fit shaming' nor 'fat shaming' are acceptable. Neither woman pictured is, 'gross'. The woman on the left could be just as addicted to exercise as the woman on the right could be to food. One thing is certain, however... I am much less concerned about the woman on the left developing chronic and long … Continue reading What are we encouraging?

Ummm… NO

I have weight trained 3x per week for the last 2 weeks. This week I bought a stationery bike to help burn calories and bring down that darn scale. I weighed myself this morning and...  I HAVE GAINED WEIGHT!!! So many swear words, so little time. I know I used for-realsie weights and not invisible … Continue reading Ummm… NO

Something is wrong with my family tree

I was at my aunt's 70th birthday on Sunday. My sister, bil, husband and I all rode up in my sister's suv. The back of which was packed with tables, chairs, food, and drink. In between our city and Wyoming, there used to be long stretches of farm and ranch land. We knew where every … Continue reading Something is wrong with my family tree

Remember working out in the ’80’s & ’90’s?

I do! I don't know if there are still any around, but I remember when the only gym in town was, Bally Total Fitness. Corey Everson was the reigning queen of fitness and the workout magazine were much better than they are now. Working out in those days was all about being seen in the … Continue reading Remember working out in the ’80’s & ’90’s?

Fat shaming ninja strikes out at me

While these are what I prefer to eat: I know this is how I MUST eat: Today is my 50th birthday. People tell my I don't look fifty. I certainly do not feel 50 so why must I own to it? I think I will fudge my age a bit. Don't tell anyone, K? My … Continue reading Fat shaming ninja strikes out at me

What are you willing to do to get what you want?

No, this is not another Pinterest post. It is something nice to look at whenever this post bothers you. I am going to admit to you that I am not at my goal weight. I'm no where near my goal weight. I am, and have been, a work in progress. Mostly because I find it … Continue reading What are you willing to do to get what you want?

When the world finally catches up with you…

I went with my husband yesterday to his doctor appointment. Nothing serious, just a routine visit for blood work, etc. The nurse took us back to the examination room to wait for the doctor as he finished up with another patient. On the back of the door, and all across one wall in particular, were … Continue reading When the world finally catches up with you…

When you start your fitness journey again…

  You plan better. My fridge is crammed full of veggies and meat. Staples of the paleo diet. My ankles are swollen from walking the grocery store trying to buy everything I need and I STILL forgot some things. I bought a workout bar I need to assemble but that's OK. I prefer bars to … Continue reading When you start your fitness journey again…
