Month: October 2015

16.22

I started at Planet Fitness April 1, 2015. April Fool’s Day was no joke this year. 🙂 I could walk a mile on the treadmill and my time wasn’t awful. I started out at 19 minutes, 21 seconds. Not bad for someone weighing 295. Slowly, and steady with time and workouts, I have improved that Read More …

Music!

I am a HUGE music fan! I personally love Workout Radio on Pandora. It’s gotten me through so many workouts! I’ve become a big fan of Fall Out Boy, Lenny Kravitz, and even Pitbull. Just read a new article on him in fact-very cool that he gives his mom credit for helping him overcome drugs Read More …

Anticipation

I am more excited than nervous to weigh in next Saturday morning. A month without stepping on any scale has been a huge challenge for me but at the same time it has been freeing. I’m not stressing every day or every few days about the numbers. I dig in and do the work and Read More …

Size matters!

Got your attention! Yes, size does matter. 😉 Sizes drive me nuts sometimes-dresses and tops and pants. I have been defined for many years now as a 3X or a 26/28 size. How depressing. I’m sure many others are in that same size or even larger. It’s not a fun place to be and anyone Read More …

Nine Years

Nine years-its seems like a long time but it has flown by. Our story is probably more typical of current relationships than old fashioned ones. We both lived in the Raleigh, NC area. I met Gary Albin in a Yahoo chat room when they still had those. It’s probably a little equivalent to today’s Tinder Read More …

Gym time

I missed my time at Planet Fitness when I traveled but it just makes me appreciate it more. I have mentioned that I take advantage of the free training program. I’m lucky to have someone who is totally committed to helping me reach for my goals. Working with a trainer to me is very different Read More …

Hitting the trail…

The past two weekends I’ve been able to walk one of our local trails with the kids. It’s made me feel like such a good mom to have some exercise and time with them away from the TV and electronics. Exploring nature is almost a lost art now it seems. I can remember spending many Read More …

Travel Triumph!

Overall I’m really happy with my travel experience this past week.  I made decent food choices for most of the trip and did fit in exercising at the hotel gym.  I’ll be glad to get back into my regular routine but it was also nice to have a little break from the norm to shake Read More …

Travel Time!

Tomorrow will be a new adventure for me.  I have been working out and eating low carb for 16 weeks now.  I have had my days that were tough and tempting.  I just recently took pictures at an event that served cake and punch and thankfully bottled waters!  I had two small bottles of water Read More …

It Fits!

It’s coming up on my 9th wedding anniversary and I don’t think I truly ever thought I would fit into my wedding dress again. Several wonderful people have given me clothes this past week since they know I have been losing weight. I have just started going through and trying them on. It’s very exciting Read More …
