I Survived a Weekend of Performing in 90+ Degree Heat!

7th July 2017 | 0 Comments

I was worried. Real worried. But I prepared. I went to the gym, worked out with my wonderful friend and fitness trainer Jeremy, who was mindful of what I was facing. I think he was a bit concerned too – and wth good reason. I am a 55 year old obese woman with two bum [...]


Building Strength. Ode to my fitness trainer.

28th October 2016 | 2 Comments

I’ve been thinking about this whole process: working out, gaining strength. The more I do, the more I can do. It’s an amazing thing to experience. As you know this isn’t my first fitness experience but working with trainer Jeremy is at a whole different level. I would NEVER push myself to the extremes that [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: The Good Pain of Working Out.

2nd December 2015 | 2 Comments

Every muscle in my body aches. That was my cry to a cousin the day after a very strenuous weight training workout with Trainer Jeremy. She became concerned: “Don’t do too much. You could hurt yourself.” I quickly explained that I have entrusted my training to a wonderful professional and the key to building strength [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Looking Forward to … Working Out and Being the Best I Can Be.

18th November 2015 | 0 Comments

Looking forward to working out. What kind of nonsense is that? Being the best I can be. Duh. That’s the goal right? Well, let me tell you something: I got a bit bogged down in the mire (no work, no money, intense knee pain) and got stuck in a vacuum of inaction. I began to [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Sitting Up and down in a chair. It’s not as easy as it sounds.

27th August 2015 | 0 Comments

It’s been awhile since I have reported on my actual workouts. I guess that’s because I have been busy writing and singing, going to France and talking about that. Going to the gym and working with my trainer has become less of a novelty which I guess is a good thing. It is part of [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Feel The Burn And Don’t Throw Up!

20th May 2015 | 0 Comments

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. That is one way to describe my session today with Trainer Jeremy. This is the first time in nearly seven weeks that I actually want to say: I have to stop! I can’t do this one anymore! But I don’t say it and [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Eating and Moving and the Fear of Knee Pain.

27th April 2015 | 0 Comments

I am committed to making this work. But I am afraid that my knee pain will kick in and make this activity a living Hell. My new relationship with fitness is a month old. If this was a love affair I would be cautious. I wouldn’t call it a “real relationship” yet. I would wait [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Results and Gratitude.

19th April 2015 | 4 Comments

312.2 LBS How could this be? I weighed 324.8 pounds three weeks ago. I sat on the floor and looked at my weight scale. I turned it over, checked the new battery, calibrated it per the instructions. I cautiously step back on the scale and there it is again. Like Magic. I am shocked, pleased [...]
