So I have this on. My desktop to help remind me. I also have in my office a sign that says 10lbs, my first goal. But to. Catch up with what is happening, I am sore from the leg workout. So I took yesterday and today off as a break. I have started back to work and this is when it will get hard for me. Getting up early is hard. And getting off work at 5:30 doesn’t give a lot of time for me. Just seems there isn’t enough time in the day. I was thinking about trying to come up with a schedule. Does anyone else have this issue?

Let me know how you juggle your schedule.

Here we go again…TOGETHER!

So tonight I worked on my legs. Or as I call it “Thunder Thighs”. I have always been stocky. But I am lucky to have the support and encouragement from my husband and best friend. He definitely knows how to help me out and he knows when to be quiet. 😊 Does anyone else have a person that helps motivate you?

So it begins..

I actually did another 5 minutes on the elliptical the past 2 evenings. But tonight I started on arms. I work on one body part a day and add in cardio.

Now I am not really over weight. I am what my grandmother calls “Healthy”. Women get a lot of criticism over how we should look. I am one who does not let others shape my imagery of myself. I am 5’2″ and dare I say 150 lbs. That is heavier than I have ever been. I didn’t weigh this much at nine months pregnant. So for me, I am chunkier than I want to be.

Normally I do not post pictures of myself but I feel it is necessary to document my journey.

Anyone else feel this way? Sometimes I feel we let social pressure get into our heads.

Cardio? Like it or not?


So it has begun. Not very fast or long but last night I hit the elliptical. After 3 minutes you realize how out of shape you are. Hopefully tonight I can go for 5 minutes. I am sure you are laughing but I am taking baby steps. I really enjoy being able to walk the next day. Cardio has never been my thing.  Eating better has started today. Hopefully I can make it last. I keep being told it takes 21 days for things to become a habit…. We will see. What is some of your experiences with cardio?
