Sweating it out.

Sitting on the recumbent bike before my Pilate's class sweating it out.  I'm feeling so much better as each day passes.  I must say the worst part of this cold is the sudden coming on of uncontrollable coughing.  I had another embarrassing moment today while in the lobby of the gym.  A tickle in my throat took over and I couldn't stop coughing.  I went for my water bottle and that didn't seem to help so I went to the bathroom and coughed for what felt like an eternity.  After gaining some composer I made a beeline (Sp?) for the coffee in the lobby.....ahh that was the cure.  Other than the embarrassing cough I feel great. 
Tomorrow is my 4 - 5 mile run day on the training schedule. Signing off.

  2. Hi Anonymous,
    Thank you for your compliments on being 'impressive'. I'll let you in on a little secret: I didn't sweat so much :-) I took it easy on the bike and in addition there was a fan pointed directly at me :-) Now tomorrow with my 4 - 5 mile run I will be sweating it out.

    Cheers!


    Thank you for posting!

Weight Watchers vs. Jillian Michael's

It's been a little over 3 years (January 2010) since I started my weight loss journey. I reached my goal weight in May of 2011 (135 lbs). Since then it's been a yoyo and my trend had been going up over the last several months. My current weight is 150 lbs (I was 155 but lost 5lbs over the last few weeks). My goal is to lose the weight I put back on (20 lbs) plus an additional 5 lbs for a weight loss of 25 lbs in total. It's so hard keeping the weight off!!

The strategy I'm now doing this time is different. I've decided to follow Jillian Michael's weight loss program instead of continuing on with Weight Watchers. I lost the 80lbs on Weight Watchers and the program served me well. It forced me to look at portion size, calories (with old points system), fiber, carbs, fat and protein (with the new points plus system).  It changed the way I looked at food. Instead of processed foods I focused on eating a variety of whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, grains and low …

Sonya 'Lost It'

Well it's now after Christmas and before New Years as I write this post.  I have been on hiatus for a long time on my blog.  I've been spending some of my time thinking about what I was going to write. I have been through some difficult times starting back in late October.  What I am about to write is very personal.   I feel a little bit foolish for sharing this with everyone as most people don't share their 'business' never mind posting it in a blog.  My hope in this post is to not have people feel sorry for me but that readers get an understanding for my situation and also an understanding of others who are going through something similar.

Taking a deep breath.

I am currently being treated for depression and anxiety and I'm almost finished with an intensive outpatient program at a local hospital (thankfully it's an amazing psychiatric hospital about 40 minutes from my home).

For those who are reading this and have either gone through a depressive episode…

Healthy Boundaries?

Growing up I always felt like I had to 'do what I was told' or else. A lot of what I learned as a child in terms of relationship bonds and my place in the world is mirrored in my adult relationships. It's taken me many years to figure what my mirror is showing me both good and bad.

I'm guessing many woman (not all) have felt the pressure to conform to others expectations and at the same time not wanting to hurt anyone's feelings or risk being seen as uncooperative. The price woman have paid over the decades has been insurmountable. I think of the mom on Leave It To Beaver, and how woman either bought into or felt that's what they should aspire to. Later on in television was the Mary Tyler Moore Show. The show was about a single woman in her thirties working at a TV station. In the show she was portrayed as a strong independent woman who knew more than those she worked with. Many decades since then more women are in the workplace than ever and more are showing …
