How Low Can You Go


>> Monday, March 10, 2014

   A new girl moved into my building and I went over to see if she needed anything. I was wearing my workout attire and the first thing she says is,'Are you a body builder? You have a great shape!'

I was so shocked because I rarely get compliments like that. Nevertheless, I will take it! 

Thank you! 


Hotel Workout

>> Saturday, March 1, 2014

    As you know I live in the UAE I am usually in Dubai or Abu Dhabi in the weekend. I have become accustomed to caring my workout clothes with soni can get in a little workout either at the hotel or at a friend's place if I am staying there.

   This morning I woke up headed to the gym, did half an hour on the treadmill and some weights.

Summary of yesterday's workout. I went back to the stairs, it was brutal because it was 31c around 4 pm. I think I am going to have to start going later because the sun was beating down on me. The scale is moving in the right direction though so that is good. Monthly weigh in is on March 4th! 

Have a great weekend! 


Day 5, 6 and 7

>> Monday, February 24, 2014

   I was so sick on Saturday and Sunday, so no workouts were had. Today was the first day that I started to feel better so I went for a 20 min walk with a friend and I am now doing 20 minutes on the elliptical paired with some squats and overhead presses. 

So all in all this challenge was a semi fail. At least I tried! 


Day 2,3 and 4

>> Friday, February 21, 2014

Day 2:

Woot woot! I didn't do the stairs because I got my act together too late. So I did my trusty elliptical. 


Stairs tomorrow! 

Day 3:
     Stairs didn't happen. I cannot go once it gets dark because it is too dangerous. I did 20 minutes on the elliptical (sorry no pic) and we out dancing.

Day 4:

Back to the stairs, 8.5 times up and down. I was sweating like a mofo it was so hot.  Started my polar late so I am sure I burned more than 600 calories.

Have a great weekend! 


I Needed A Push

>> Tuesday, February 18, 2014

      I have been eating ok, but the scale seems to be at a standstill, so I decided to push myself and challenge myself to one hour of stairs everyday for one week. I further went on to challenge my friends on Facebook to one hour of cardio everyday for one week, many of my friends stepped up to the challenge.

     Today was the first day and I must say it went well. I did 45 minutes at the stairs and the 15 minutes on my elliptical at home!

What about you can you do one hour of cardio everyday for one week? 


Ups and Downs, But Always Winning

>> Sunday, February 16, 2014

   Some of you have been here for awhile so you know my journey, but for those of you that are new here is a little summary: I started this journey in 2007 at 272, in 2011 I got down to 209 (206 for like a day) went back up to 252 the fort few weeks living in the UAE and now I sit at 237-240.   I found some old pics the other day and made this little collage.

The picture on the left was from 2007 and the picture on the right is from two weeks ago.  Even though I am up, I am still down overall. I am not perfect but I am still working in it.

Have a great week!
