Exercise Tips

You guys know how obsessed I am now about working out, trying to maintain the weight loss. It gets pretty tough, especially around the holidays. I keep seeing your wonderful posts about holiday cookie recipies and such, and keep thinking to myself "the elliptical is fun!" (And then i laugh at myself.)

Through Payperpost, I cam across this wonderful (my opinion not biased by the money - that's why I chose to write about it) website to help all of us fitness women. The blogger's name is Marcella, and she's a personal trainer based in California. (If you're in CA, look her up!)

For example, I think with all the holiday treats that tempt us, she has a great post on sticking to a diet by cutting calories off your holiday favorites.

And I saw something on tv about this last week, about all the germs at the gym, and she posts a great article about keeping healthy while you do your fitness routine.

She's got some good advice over there. Check it out if you're so inclined.

My gym has bottles of antiseptic spray that we use to spray down the stuff after we use it.
I find myself spraying my hands, too!

Holidays (not just Christmas) are tough on diets. Picnics, cakes and junk. Remember - moderation. You'll be fine.

Well, I was hoping to lose 10lb or so this year, in view of my birthday trip to Seville in January, but now that there are three weeks left, I have another 8lb to go. Eeek. Maybe it's time for me to realize that this weight thing is not that big a deal... I mean, if it was, I'd put more effort into it, no?

But I am full of admiration for you for sticking it out... Well done, girl. And I echo Anthony: You'll be fine over the holidays, don't sweat it!

I haven't been to a gym in years, but for me the easiest way to stay healthy was lots of hand washing. I was really more worried about catching something from sitting on the I would put down some towels.

I've done pretty good with the holiday weight...I think I'm only up about 2 pounds. I do need to cut out the afternoon Pepsi and probably the desserts (but someone's gotta eat them!)

I'll go check out the site though. More tips are always good. Did I tell you what I did for this year's cheese cake? Every year I make a cheese cake and every year I get stuck eating 1/2 of the thing. So this year I bought a smaller cheese cake pan. I'm hoping that more than 1/2 will get eaten on the first night so that I don't have 1/2 to eat on my own. If that doesn't work, I'm sending slices home with my guests!!!
