On your mark, get set...
OK, working out my plan. First step is to boogie in some housework so I have no guilt over hopping along to the gym. This is my biggest challenge.
As far as eating, my initial goal is to strictly limit fast food and processed foods. Yes, there ... Read more
Moving from 2015 to 2016
Looking back over my goals from 2 years ago, seeing that I'm in much the same position, although I have another beautiful little boy, and of course nurturing him through pregnancy and infancy took precedence over trying to get "skinny." But now ... Read more
Expecting a Little Peanut
So right now, I have a great excuse for not actively trying to LOSE weight. I am 9-weeks pregnant! But, that also means I have the best reason in the world to try to clean up my eating and shore up some good habits, both eating and mild exercise... Read more
Starting once again. 2013 did not go as I'd hoped weight-loss-wise, but I feel an overall health improvement. My actual habits (and the bloodwork for the doctor) are all looking better.
I need to loose weight. It is hard for me due to messe... Read more
It's that time of year again!
Okay, so after facing my disasterous Thanksgiving weight gain (11 pounds!), my goal for December is just to try and knock that back off before leaving on Christmas vacation. Facing a 2-week roadtrip for the end-of-year holidays means that actual... Read more
16-week Progress Report (Still glaicial slow)
Okay, I'm mostly doing a bit better on my eating. I still have bad days, but they're getting fewer. Attempting to get back into more home-cooking than dining out.
I've also picked up on the exercise...those DVDs I bought haven't gotten muc... Read more
Progress...slow but there!
I keep falling off my little bandwagon this year. Between stress, my hubby's eating habits, and well, a desire to get to ENJOY stuff again, I'm having a lot of trouble being good. My "kryptonite" buddy is doing really well and jumping my case ab... Read more
Take 2...or maybe Take 352?
Ok, I had a good start earlier this year, but fell off the wagon pretty quickly. Then it was birthdays, Easter, Mother's Day, more birthdays, etc. And my best friend is REALLY bad about wanting to go out to eat. A lot.
Well, she gained a bi... Read more
Freezer Mini Update
I just sent in our order for a half of a cow. We also have a friend that hunts that is going to try to get us a wild hog, all we have to pay is the processing. When deer season comes around again, he's going to try for some venison for us (also,... Read more
Goals and Calculations.
Right now, I've decided that what I really want to do is to focus on WHAT I am eating and how I am feeding my family. So instead of focusing on pure weight-loss, I want to focus on healthy eating habits (and that should make weight-loss a happy ... Read more
Two steps forward, One step back
Well, I did pretty good on my eating plan for about a week and a half. Then Valentine's Day hit, and I got given something like 8 small boxes of chocolates. Then we went out to dinner that night. And then we went out of town for the long weekend... Read more
Update on the Freezer Status
So, over the months of December and January, I managed to "eat down" the deep freezer enough for a much-needed defrost and reorganize. I also did some restocking and made some homemade convienence items. But there are still a few "bad guys" lurk... Read more
These are starting to be some pretty familiar goals!
I need to lose weight. It is hard for me due to messed-up hormones, but it IS possible. My GOAL for 2013 is to get down into the 170's. I did lose about 8 pounds in 2012 (that I KEPT off... Read more
Pantry Reset Whoops!
I completely forgot about how often we end up going out to eat with various friends/family/functions in December, so that didn't go as I'd planned. But I did make the Shepherd's Pie (using the ground lamb...evil evil evil) and the 3-bean chili (... Read more
In an attempt to prepare and reset for the coming year, without being wasteful, I'm trying to use up a few things that are lurking in my pantry and freezer. But I don't want to just go all-out and splurge on bad, junky meals for several days eit... Read more
