Welp I knew I blew it...up 8 lbs...and on being honest
First of all, I COMPLETELY understand people who decide not to track any gains. Like, see them, appreciate them, work on stopping the slide and then beginning to track weight again when the scale continues its downward progression.
I lost ... Read more
Rough night, didn't blow it, better day today
So last night was very difficult emotionally for me. I had some drama at home which caused me to get incredibly upset. As a result, I didn't have dinner. I was just too sad and depressed. But I did make it worse by having a glass of wine. (... Read more
Is the No-S Diet going to work for me?
So I ate clean for 2 1/2 weeks, and this weekend, I lost it a bit. Not to sound like a nut (too late, I know) but on Saturday I binged on Stacy's pita chips with Cinnamon and sugar and then had some chocolate.
Sunday was worse, I cooked all d... Read more
Trick for Tracking - "pre-track" - it's working for me!
So ok, I'm sure I'm not the first or only one to do this, but it's really been working for me!
I plan out my day - what I'm going to eat. I bring my food to work, only stopping for coffee on the way. So basically, I know what I have availabl... Read more
12 pound weight loss!! Sorry, no pics yet...
I can't wait until I get to the blog where I share my "before" and "after" pics, but alas, that is not this blog. I need to get much stronger mentally before I feel like I'm ready to share myself in that way.
However, I am SUPER SUPER exci... Read more
Fired up!!!! ... but wary
I am all fired up! I know myself, and am trying to not get too carried away. I can keep things up for months sometimes, but as soon as I start feeling good (clothes looking good, feeling lighter, feeling slimmer) I'm back off to the races goin... Read more
New Healthy 2015, an unexpected compliment, and NSV
So I've been gone for almost 2 years!? How is that possible? But I am back at Spark and trying to get down to my goal weight (again, sigh). I am hoping that this is my year, I see that a lot of others are feeling the same way - so le... Read more
Back to Basics
So I've been reading the "popular" blogs today, as I do at least once a week, and I've noticed that several members are getting back on track. Winter tends to see our eating and excercising habits spin out of control and it seems that now is th... Read more
Training for Philly Marathon!
So CRAZIEST thing in the world, I've decided to train for the Philadelphia Marathon. Ok, this isn't exactly the craziest thing I guess, I have done 3 5Ks this year so far, and I can pretty much run a few miles no problem, but for me, that other... Read more
SUCCESS! Month 1 of the 3 month workout plan
So I guess now I post the stats: here goes!
January 1: 169 lbs
February 2: 155.6 lbs
I still have quite a ways to go for a "healthy" BMI and size (for me, at least!) but I feel very confident in this workout plan! (Check my last... Read more
I've Made a 3 MONTH workout Plan!!
Ok, it's been a million years since my last blog, but I'm feeling inspired. No one really reads them I know (haha) but it makes me feel better to post.
I just ran across a 3 month "total body transformation" workout in Women's Health, and hav... Read more
When there's no "aha" moment
Inspired from one of my new Sparkfriends, I had a thought.
What happens when there is no "aha" moment, no "last straw", no "breaking point" when you realize you finally have to get healthy or else?
Sometimes it's a battle, right from t... Read more
Eating food out of the garbage
Sorry about the second blog entry today, but I have PRESSING matters on my mind!
Does anyone remember the Sex and the City episode where Miranda says:
(to Carrie's answering machine) "Your good friend Miranda has just taken a piece of cak... Read more
2 days later
So this week has been great so far - I've gone to the gym Monday and Tuesday, and am about to go out the door right now for a third day in a row. I feel great, but I feel like I didn't eat the way I should have yesterday.
I ate very little al... Read more
