The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Hanging in there!

7th December 2010 | 5 Comments

I have to admit to some missed days of exercise. And a tad bit of indulgent eating BUT I did not given up or totally give in! Nor have I said: “Fuck it!” when it comes to watching what I eat. I’m keeping my eyes on the prize. I had a bit of emotional turmoil [...]


The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Feeling the Difference

21st November 2010 | 4 Comments

It’s been two weeks now and I’m still being active. I’ve had a lot of time off this month (November is a notoriously slow month) and I used the time to work out. So my first night back to real work (five hours on my feet – three of it dancing) was a real test.

Yep. I’m still working out. I have gone to the gym regularly and when I don’t make it downtown to the Trump I have made use of my very well equipped home gym. My equipment may be “old school” but it still works the same muscle groups as the new-fangled stuff!

It’s my first day in a bona fide health club. I have made it through the first door. I have been intimidated by cardio-machines that have control panels that look like you need an instruction manual to operate them but I am determined to get some kind of work out today at this gym.


The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: In the Gym.

I have a confession to make. I have never worked out in front of other humans in a health club. I have briefly looked in on and walked through a few gyms in my life and frankly, they scared me. I walk into a gym and I am immediately that girl in junior high: the [...]

I am writing this as I cool off in the private hydratherapy bath treatment suite at the Spa at Trump which is located in the Trump Hotel Chicago. I can crawl in and out of the bath to go have a seat by the window and glance at this beautiful city. This is the wind [...]

8th November 2010 | 5 Comments

It was a good day. I did okay food wise. But my real accomplishment was the exercise. Funny thing, right after I wrote last night’s post I went into the kitchen and was about to finish off some left over quesadillas from the fridge… Oops!


Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Cardio!

26th June 2010 | 2 Comments

Yes, my dears! I did a bonafide, sweaty, breathy cardio for 20 minutes! I used to do 60 minutes, then bike ride and weights and stretching, but hell, I haven’t done shit in years! This is a good first step and I didn’t drop dead in the process! And I feel great! Don’t know what [...]


Fat Pussycat & Me.

So, I’m lounging here in the bed and as I reach over to grab something to eat I hear a muffled cry from beneath me. It’s my poor kitty Shana Punim who, as a show of her steadfast loyalty and unbeknownst to me, has saddled up beside me – and I rolled over on top [...]
