Well, I'm back. And I'm at 162.2 as of this morning.
This year has been exhausting for numerous reasons. There was a big family broo-ha-ha last fall, almost a year ago, which still has not shaken out. Thankfully it's not my nuclear famil... Read more
2014 Q2 Post
Seems like I'm posting once a quarter at this point, LOL
All is well :) I went through what I believe was a giant re-feed from mid-March through the beginning of May because after doing the Whle30 last year and being told about the 5:2 die... Read more
Present and Accounted For
Only three months have passed since my last entry! Not bad, considering... LOL
The good news is that this year's Holiday Food Fest was somewhat moderated when compared to that of 2012. I ended up 5 lbs. over what I was before Christmas, b... Read more
The Good and the Bad
On the plus side, roasted chickpeas are GOOD :)
On the minus side, the party got cancelled. Not only did it get cancelled, but after all my angst-ing about cake, I ended up buying one at Publix Friday afternoon. It was called an Apple Sta... Read more
Ahoy Mateys, There Be Rough Waters Ahead!
Yep, I'm totally having a flashback to International Talk like a Pirate Day.
Thank you for all your comments re: the Holiday Eating Frenzy. It's good to know I'm not alone at least! But good grief it makes me insane. My husband and I hav... Read more
And Two Steps Back
I am such a stereotype it kills me.
I do really well for a week/ a month/ a quarter/ whatever, and then some massive dining event occurs (usually several clumped up together) and I feel as if I'm right back where I started, both psychologic... Read more
Still Progressing :)
So far so good, still. I had a cookie yesterday (tiny - 60 calories) that wasn't planned for and a bowl of frozen yogurt that was planned. I'm only obsessing about the cookie to any degree because I'm trying to eat just what I've planned right... Read more
Definitely Progress :)
I did well yesterday, hooray! I stuck with my plan even though the stupid Halloween candy that Those Who Sign My Paychecks crave was sitting out all day. It about killed me because I LOVE the Reese's pumpkins (love!!! Even though they're terr... Read more
How'd That Happen?
Well, while I didn't fly off the rails yesterday, I did deviate somewhat from my planned food intake. It wasn't horrible, but it wasn't my best moment either.
When it came time for my marvelous daily chocolate, I thought "Hmmm... you know,... Read more
Day 3 On the "Let's Not Get Crazy Here" Diet...
Day 3 and all continues to go well. My meals stay pretty static on a weekly basis because I tend to do a big "cook-up" on the weekends for my work lunches, and for dinners I stick with fish because I can generally trust it to thaw by the time I... Read more
Okay, one day down. I stuck with my plan, hooray!
And I stuck with it in spite of my delightful husband saving me one of the last two Reese's Pumpkins. He really is good about not pushing, because when I say "no" he accepts it and moves o... Read more
So Far, So Good
Today is going well. I got the Halloween candy away from my desk (the Reese's pumpkins were calling my name), and have stuck to plan for both breakfast and lunch. Since I don't tend to snack much at home my hope is that I won't lose my mind an... Read more
Miscalculations are a bummer.
Regarding my latest attempt at the Whole30, I give.
You hear me, universe? I give!!!
This is clearly not the time for me to be doing an uber-restrictive food plan, because I'm going into a ridiculous "deprivation" mindset which is j... Read more
Checking In :)
Wow... okay, last post was January. Yikes!
Warning: babbling commences. Read on at your own risk.
Anyway, to sum up the last, say, NINE months, I dropped the holiday weight and have since bounced between 138 and 145. Right now I'm ... Read more
ALL the Food!!
The holiday toll on the scale has been impressive. On December 1st I weighed 135. This morning, the scale said 149.
Now granted, some of that is absolutely water weight. We've been eating out like fiends ... Read more
