Slow and steady wins the race when it comes to weight loss
I am acting in my husbands movie project this week, so I won't be cooking. I actually made Hoppin' John and Polish Bigos for my mom and the other actor ahead of time. That way I wasn't responsible for dinner every night and we had something healthy and homemade. This week I decided to talk [...]
I've been getting better, slowly but surely. I'm now back to doing 10,000 steps (Slowly, not at my usual pace). I'm also doing some gentle yoga. Here's the routine if you ever need one: I keep lots of different yoga routines in a playlist on YouTube. Five Parks Yoga and Fightmaster Yoga are my two favorites. [...]
Overtraining syndrome never leaves you.
Today I am not doing so well. I skipped my usual Monday workout. Today is the day I usually go balls out. I got winded yesterday vacuuming (I have a heavy Kirby vacuum which doesn't help). I got on the treadmill this morning and felt out of breath. Last weekend I fell into a deep [...]

A Painful Lesson…
Hey everybody! Hope you all have had a great week! I’ve hit a bit of a plateau this week, and it’s all my own fault. I joined a gym last week because it’s starting to get dark earlier and I still want to get all my step goals in. My commute to work is an [...]
My name’s Marsha. I’m 46, a mom, a grandmother, a wife, a breast-cancer survivor, an IT professional, and a whole lot more that I’m NOT going to tell you about. Well, at least not yet – there’s a wink in there, I’ll guarantee it. Then I started with your level best, I weighed 201 pounds. [...]
