Back To The Workout

After not being able to work out for a few weeks due to strep thoat, I was finally able to get up on the StairMaster this weekend for a total of forty minutes, all before eating anything. I didn’t go very hard since I figured it would probably kill me, but it was kind of nice to get back in the groove of things.

I also wanted to thank Amy, Lisa, and Gillian for their CDs through Allison’s CD swap. Mad props go out to Allison for organizing the whole thing and for making the most kick-ass mix CD I have ever seen!

Strep Throat It Is!

I went to the doctor today and he confirmed what my boyfriend had suspected - I have strep throat. Looks like there won’t be any posts here until I kick it.

Working Out Tracks

I just finished addressing the envelopes that my CDs for Alison’s First Ever Supa-Cool Fitness/Diet Blogger Workout CD Swap are getting mailed in. On the first pass through all my music, I chose five hours of tunes, so getting everything down to one CD was virtually impossible. Everyone in the two groups I’m in lucked out because I decided to make two CDs instead of just one. The first CD is more upbeat and techno, but I think both of them ought to be good to work out to. If you’re curious about what songs I chose, just keep reading.

Sickly Excuses

I realize it’s been a while since I posted, but I just wanted to give everyone a head’s up as to what’s going on.

Last week was PMS and The Period From Hell, so no excercising was done. Currently, I’m under the weather with some flu-type sickness, so I don’t know when I’ll be exercising again - probably not before Sunday at this point.

Anyway, I’m not dead and I received two CDs from Amy today that I can’t wait to exercise to. Thanks for the great music, Amy!

Workout CD

This is late considering sign-ups end tomorrow, but if you want some good music to workout to, go join Alison’s First Ever Supa-Cool Fitness/Diet Blogger Workout CD Swap.

Basically, you make four copies of a mix CD, keep one for yourself, and send out the others to other bloggers. Sounds like a great way to get some good music to me!

More Updating Needed

Christine called today and reminded me that it’s been like ten days since I’ve updated over here. Bad me!

I have been exercising, but for whatever reason, I just been coming over here and updating, so here’s a quick run down of the last week and a half.

Last week I worked out probably four days on the StairMaster and one day in the gym. Did okay at best on eating better.

This week I StairMastered Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday for thirty-five to forty minutes. I’m doing a different approach where the first twenty minutes is spent doing it slower, but with long steps. It should help tone my leg and butt muscles. The last fifteen or twenty minutes are to burn calories.

I’ve been eating snacks twice a day for the last few days and having a lighter dinner. I’ve also given up cokes at night (believe me, this is the hardest thing for me) and gone to drinking Crystal Light (grapefruit flavor). I’m not limiting my cokes too much during the day, but I hope to get it down to two soon.

Okay, that’s the catch-up post. I hope to start posting more regularly in here again now.

TiVo Equation

Thanks to having a TiVo near the StairMaster I have a nifty little equation for you:

40 minutes on the StairMaster = 1 hour of television minus commercials

Nice to see that I save a third of my time by using TiVo.

Inspiration

I was talking to my mom today and she mentioned she’s lost 30 pounds. What an inspiration! I am so proud of her. Way to go, Mom!

And, Mom, thanks for stopping by and wishing me luck. Your love and support are always a wonderful thing.

A New Beginning

Most of my New Year’s resolutions for this year had to do with weight loss.

With that in mind, I started this blog, Changes - Turning Over a New Leaf, in hopes that by having somewhere to record my progress in a public venue I would be more inclined to actually keep those resolutions.

I probably won’t do any calorie counting (at least to start), but I do hope to record my workouts and my water drinking on here.

I’m not sure how interesting this is going to be for other people, but please feel free to leave comments and encouragment. One can always do with a little help from their friends!
