Never Give Up
I continue to be terribly disappointed with my lack of weight loss. I never imagined this would be so hard for me. It has never been 'easy' for me, but once I would start down the path of weight loss, I always saw results.
This time around,... Read more
Week Three- Frustrated, So I'll Work Harder!
I just weighed myself-- up two pounds from 1.5 weeks ago :( I'm super disappointed and thinking that part of it is water weight due to my period and going out to eat twice yesterday. Still, it's frustrating to see the numbers go up already. Two ... Read more
Week Two: Vacation Backtracking
This has been week two of my efforts to get back in shape and lose weight. Let's just say that I'll be happy to maintain at this moment, and I won't be getting on the scale for my weigh-in tomorrow. I don't think I did utterly horrible, but vaca... Read more
Day 9-- Temptation Everywhere!
I promise I won't be counting my days forever, it's just helpful now in the beginning-- kind of like ppl keeping track of their sobriety. And food certainly can be addictive for me.
Anyways, today started well... I went to spinning class an... Read more
Week One-- Down Three Pounds!
Woo hoo! I've survived my first week of being back on track! I feel so great and very proud of myself. I've had a lot of great workouts, and I ran 3.5 miles Saturday morning with our daughter in the jogging stroller, no stopping to walk! It real... Read more
Days 4 and 5-- still on a roll!
The past two days continue to be great. Despite eating out every day for the past week, I've been able to keep my calories less than 1600 for the day. Yesterday when I ate at a brunch type place with my dad, none of the 'healthy' options sounded... Read more
Day 3- Not Bad!
Yesterday my family left to go 2 hours south of where we live because my husband needs to take a refresher test for his police certification. That meant some time in the car and not having access to my healthy kitchen. I thought I did well, but ... Read more
Day 2, A Good Day
Yesterday was pretty good. My mom and I went out to eat and had lunch instead of ice cream. I had half a mushroom panini and lentil soup. The panini had cheese on it, but it was only half of one and I had iced tea instead of an alcoholic beverag... Read more
Day 1- The results
Yesterday I had posted that I was FED UP with my weight. I knew I'd hit a bottom and I finally did, 6 months after saying I was going to get healthy and lose some fat. I did great yesterday! Step and tone class, 20 minutes of jogging, a LOT of w... Read more
Disappointed with myself
I bit the bullet and weighed myself this morning-- 177. I'm so disappointed in myself. I have been telling myself I would really be dedicated to losing weight since January. Alas, I've managed to pack on 4 or 5 pounds instead. As I looked throug... Read more
The new plan
I've had plenty of struggles to live a healthier life in the past six months, and one of them has been working from home. I love, LOVE working from home, but it entails being more sedentary. With a toddler in tow, it is more difficult to get out... Read more
Getting back on track
My dad had gallbladder surgery yesterday. Typically this is an outpatient surgery, however, my dad has spent a week in the hospital b/c his whole gallbladder was completely full of stones and had kind of spewed them all over his body. Monday the... Read more
Not the healthiest week
I'm running a 5k on Sunday and I've barely ran this week. I was POSITIVE I'd be running this morning-- and I will probably suck it up and deal, and do it anyways because I HAVE to-- but Amelia's poor sleep is really killing me. Up from 2:30a-4:3... Read more
Try, try again
So yesterday was an AWFUL eating day. DH and I got into a huge horrible fight on Saturday and although my eating choices were not terrific Sat and Sunday, I still kept my calories in a decent range. Not so much yesterday. Not only did I eat and ... Read more
