Harder than it seems...
Here it is, half way through February and I feel as though I've fallen off the wagon again. Jan 29th I weighed in and had lost 3 pounds. Feb 5th I weighed in and stayed the same, didn't gain but didn't lose either. But that weekend I also made c... Read more
I'm afraid to get TOO excited...
My "discovery" that I only need to work out 20-30 minutes a day to burn approx 150 calories to lose weight seems to be helping. Of course, this also means keeping my eating in check, and some days that is a real challenge. I weighed myself in th... Read more
I just realized that I haven't posted a blog on here since last August! Which also means that I probably haven't been working out or tracking my eating habits since then either. No wonder the last time I got on the scale I had GAIN... Read more
Haven't seen you in a while...
Have you ever been belittled by a video game? It goes something like this...
"Hi! It's been a while since I've seen you. Been too busy to exercise huh? Well, let's get you on the scale... OH! That's overweight! Hmm... looks like you've gain... Read more
11 days and counting...
11 more days until my 1st mini goal of 5 pounds by 8/6/11. I think (hope?) I'm starting to see changes from my workouts. I feel like my arms and legs have a bit more firmness to them, and I'm pretty sure I have at least a little more endurance t... Read more
I think I can, I think I can...
I've surprised myself in the past couple of weeks. No, I haven't been perfect. I'm sure I had days I ate too much, although I've been consciously trying to pick healthy foods over junk. And I haven't worked out every day, but 2-3 times a week is... Read more
Yesterday I got home from work and did a 20 minute workout (Jillian Michaels 30-day shred DVD), and took my dog for a quick walk, probably 3/4 of a mile. I tried to stay positive during my workout and focus on how it felt GOOD, even though I was... Read more
It's Wednesday, a beautiful, blue sky & sunshine Wednesday... and I feel like I have a hangover, although no alcohol was consumed. Sometimes I just wake up with a headache (I'm the only person I know where sleeping makes a headache worse). But s... Read more
Knowing isn't doing...
What do I know? I know that I've had high cholestrol since at least age 22, at which point I weighed 143 pounds. I know that I am now 27, still with high cholestrol, and now weigh 170 pounds. I know that I am not satisfied with my current weigh... Read more
I'm a procrastinEATER
I've come to realize one of my biggest downfalls of losing weight.. My inability to stop shoving food in my mouth every waking moment. I now realize I am a procrastineater. At work when I'm putting off doing something I may shuffle papers or org... Read more
Back on the wagon.
I thought I would track my food faithfully while on vacation, but that didn't work out so well. I did try to be somewhat mindful of what I was eating and how much, but hey, I WAS on vacation... And we didn't go anywhere, just did work around the... Read more
Day 3... go me!
I've made it to lunch on day 3. It's really not so bad except I feel like I'm starving not long after I just ate. I'm hoping my stomach has just been stretched out from my constant overeating and will shrink back down to a normal size. At least,... Read more
Day 2 of my healthy habits / weight loss restart.
Yesterday I did ok, especially with my restart being a bit spontaneous. I didn't work out how I had planned last night, but I did some crunches and sit-up variations along with some chest f... Read more
Here I go again...
I feel like I'm talking to myself since I don't imagine anyone will actually read my blog. But hey, that's ok. Maybe I'll start answering myself too. So, out with it...
I can't believe I allowed myself to become so lazy and put on this weig... Read more
