Gained it! Lose it the same way! One day at a TIME!

15 May

Ok so I read Andras Blog Love to Eat, Hate to Exercise!  I LOVE it.  She is fabulous and I really loved her post about How I did it!  I agree with basically everything.  She talks about the fact that you gain weight one day at a time so you can’t lose it just by doing or using one magical thing or pill or powder.  I so agree I tried to exercise, but that was not the way I lost most of my weight it made me look better, but the scale didn’t change much.  I joined weight watchers and watched what I ate.  I thought it worked great, but I also think that counting calories just writing it down in a journal could work too.  You just need some responsibility for what you are doing.  The one thing I can’t really agree on is the juicer part.  I have wanted to get one, and I really think I might after reading her blog.  I do agree focusing on eating more vegetables and fruits is a really smart idea and sometimes you just don’t have the time to eat as many as you should so I think juicing could be one of the ways to do it.  I have learned to love more vegetables than I used to, and they do make you feel fuller.  But like Andras Blog I believe you need to do many things, and you can’t expect everything to just fall off us all at once.  I also think that you have to start with the little things.  Start with changing one thing and than with another.  I know we all make New Year’s Resolutions and I truly believe that the reason so many of us don’t do them is we are trying to change everything in our life that we thing isn’t perfect.  When I think that we would be better off doing one thing each month.  Try to change things little by little.  Check out her Blog she looks Great.  And I love to read her posts.

Transformation in the City

17 Apr

Ok so I just found Theodora’s blog and I think she is so fun to read about!  I love NYC.  Being from the East coast myself sometimes I miss it.  Although I do love the mountains.  I miss the East Coast in the fall with all the leaves changing 🙂  I really wanted to try to run a couple races this summer.  I am considering getting pregnant around that time as well so I think that is an excuse and I would love to start doing something new again because I really want to get back to goal again.  So I have started up spinning again.  Which I forgot how much I love, and I am thinking about running as well.  I think I need to get some new shoes.  So if you have any ideas feel free to let me know.  My husband is thinking about getting those toe shoes.  Personally I think I want more padding not less padding.  I know some people swear buy it, but not sure if one of those people would be me.  Especially since I am not a lover of running already.  Anyway, thoughts would be appreciated.  Put your favorite type or brand of running shoe in the comments 🙂  Anyway, Theodora lost over 50lbs and now she runs and does tons of races.  I love this blog post it talks about respecting each race and each distance and I think that is really neat.  Click Here  anyway, hope you love it as much as I do.  Let me know what your favorite new fitness activity.
