    Friday, March 6, 2009


    You might be wondering at what age can you use your number as an excuse to give it all up, sit in a pile, and wait to die :0) There is no age! It seems extreme, but about 3 years ago, I was pretty much there.

    Core Commitment + Support = Weight Loss Success Yuck. Core commitment. The very sound of it turns me off. I have never been big on commitment - core or otherwise.

    Now We’re Cooking! Going into week 8

    Thursday, March 27, 2008


    This gives a few advantages. First being that you work up and can tweak the exercises either through intensity or repetition to your own fitness level as you start out. And basically the same advantages apply as you advance - the exercises grow increasingly more challenging, and as you progress, you can add weight to get increase benefit and avoid plateaus.

    Shaking It Up – Going into week 6

    Tuesday, March 11, 2008


    I just realized that the end of this week will mark 1/2 way into the bikini ready transformation challenge. What's the verdict? I won't look 20 again and no program except surgery is going to make me Bo Derek (here I am dating myself again), but I think that if I want to, at the end of the challenge I'd be able to wear a bikini without being chased off the beach.

    Going to the Dogs

    Get Out Your Exercise Clothes, Enough Fooling Around!

    Friday, May 11, 2007


    I was cleaning out my dresser and found my work out clothes that had become my daily wardrobe when the gym was open where I live. They immediately brought back “feel good” memories, and memories of how ingrained they had become into my routine. I set them out every night, or put them in my [...]

    What is the best thing to eat after exercising?

    Saturday, March 31, 2007


    During a seminar at our gym, the nutritionist told us that a protein with a small carb was essential within 1/2 hour of exercising to replenish/repair muscle tissue after exercising, making your next work out and fat burned between more effective. I usually was hungry anyway as I eat often but not before exercising, so [...]

    Yoga and Pilates

    Friday, March 30, 2007


    WHICH IS BETTER, YOGA OR PILATES? Both Yoga and Pilates are highly beneficial but give different results. Yoga is wonderful for stretching and keeping you limber, and for de-stressing as well. It also creates strength in all areas. Pilates strengthen your core area – your abs and back in a highly focused and effective way. [...]

    It is definitely the time of year to be getting back on board with a Fit Yummy Mummy 12 Week Challenge – I am counting down the days to being 10lbs lighter and 12 weeks stronger!

    Holly gives us assignments throughout the challenge, today it is to examine perfection and the effect that it has on our results – and how it can more likely than not cause more trouble than it saves. I am looking at that today.

    How about you. Has perfection ever brought you down in your efforts to lose weight or get healthier?
