February Goal Setting - New Goals, New Focus
Still here, still kicking. Though admittedly it's *that time* of the month and I'm not kicking as much as I am couch sitting and resting up.
I did have my last moment of frustration with the scale last Friday. I weighed and it was up again ... Read more
Making a big decision - Week 3 in Review
Week 3 (my week runs Friday-Thursday), I kind of panicked and weighed myself every day to see how my weight was fluctuating. It snuck up at the beginning of the week, but by my typical weigh in day it was right back at 237.8, same as the previou... Read more
Pushing through the 2 week slump
I've been working on my "baby steps" plan for the past two week and a half weeks. Some Fireball whiskey and I got a little too friendly Friday night and I was pretty hungover the next morning. 2 weeks in is the point, any time I start to make he... Read more
Dealing with Depression - Week 2 in Review
So I was a little bummed yesterday. I got on the scale and gained half a pound this week. I'm not stressing too much about it. I mean, geez, I dropped 6 pounds the first week, I figured my body might be in a little bit of shock. But still, I wou... Read more
Gotta push through life's twists and turns
Ugh. So I was feeling pretty good after last week. We went out to eat Mexican food Friday night, but I didn't sweat it. I got a grilled chicken, pepper, and onion mix and only ate about half of it with a few tortillas. I ate a few chips. Drank a... Read more
Not a Bad Start - Week 1 in Review
So I was really surprised at dropping 6 pounds this week. I expected around a 2 or 3 pound drop just due to "water weight." I really upped my water intake and cut out the diet root beer. A lot of that was because I was out of it and was too lazy... Read more
2015 - The Year of Small Changes
The weight started creeping back this past year. My boyfriend B moved in May of 2014. Soon after, we both wound up with mono and were stuck on the couch for months recovering. We also both work from home on the computer all day, which is not con... Read more
Still Kicking + Friend's Moving Drrrrrama
Yay, I'm still here! I'm 2 weeks in on my healthier eating habits and exercise and 2.2 pounds down. I was a little disappointed to see only a .2 pound loss this past week. I burned at least 500 additional calories than the previous week and ther... Read more
Wow, that week off totally derailed me. I thought I had managed to push through it, then whammo, I disappeared for three months.
Part of it was just being flat-out tired. Tired of the hours and hours of working out and just not feeling lik... Read more
Back to reality + Burgess Falls Pics
I have to say I definitely enjoyed my week off. I had planned to get back to routine yesterday, but good old TOM decided to give that idea a swift kick in the pants. I know that day in particular is a rough, painful day for me that leads to work... Read more
Recharge: 75% Complete
It's been an interesting week. My mini-vacation (a day and a half off from work) was AMAZING! I didn't really do anything exotic. I didn't get a lot accomplished that I had planned. I didn't mow, work on my car, or get teacher applications done,... Read more
A week off
So I did a couple of dumb things this weekend:
1) Ended up having a serious cheeseburger craving that has still not been pacified. Today I am going to indulge and that will be it. No more cheeseburger for you, stomach!
2) Decided to wa... Read more
So I heard on Bob & Tom (radio show) this morning about this story. Apparently someone was greatly offended because they saw the color name "manatee gray" on Target's plus-size clothing. Now Target's scrambling to fix this marketing snafu.

The fast food indulgence that didn't turn me into a face-stuffing lunatic
Last night I had my first fast food meal in almost 3 months. I usually go to my parents house once a week to watch Justified (season finale last night...AWWWESOMEsauce!). Usually I budget my calories because I know they end up cooking stuff a li... Read more
