DAY 36- Balance
Well, waking up this morning and exercising was a good choice. It's amazing how something so simple can so drastically change your day! While exercising, I listened to an epic podcast sermon by Andy Stanley. He always inspires me and sets me on ... Read more
DAY 35- EATING SAME THING DAILY AND CALORIE COUNTING
Well...here's an update on my little experiment.
I tried to eat the same thing every day for about a week. I lasted only a few days. The first two were fine, but days 3 and 4 I fell off the wagon because I was just so bored.
Then I tri... Read more
Day 19- MEAL PLANNING
Today went ok, although I was discouraged to step on the scale and find that it hadn't moved. I'm going a bang-up job of maintaining, but the only "Experiment" that has really worked the past 19 days was low-carb. So I kind of gave up on bringin... Read more
DAY 18- Meal Planning
Today I had some of Brian's frittata for breakfast, and I was going to eat leftovers for lunch and dinner, but just wasn't feeling 5-day old pork tenderloin. So I had a Publix sub instead for my lunch-dinner, and it was DELICIOUS.
I'm a lit... Read more
DAY 17- PLANNING PAYS OFF
Well, planning most certainly pays off. This morning I woke up and made my smoothie as planned. I threw my salad and pre-portioned dressing with my chocolate trail mix into my lunchbox, and off I went! And then after clinic I stopped by Publix t... Read more
DAY 16- MEAL PLANNING
I have made some serious progress. I used my "Weekly Meal Planning" calendar to come up with a meal plan for the week that would work for now and forever. I planned out each day so that I'm getting the recommended minimums for grains, fruit, veg... Read more
DAY 14- NADA
Well. What I was SUPPOSED to have done these past 4 days was a combo of low carb and meal planning. Did that happen? Nope. I'm not sure exactly why or how I drifted off the rails so dramatically. I didn't binge eat, I just didn't eat WELL. Still... Read more
DAY 10 - MEAL PLANNING
I barely had time to eat yesterday because we were so busy last night so I really didn't follow the plan. Intern brought me a bar midway through, and I ended up binging the next day because of it. Just ate 2 pieces of pizza...and Brian had sweet... Read more
DAY NINE- MEAL PLANNING
I'm thinking in a fog right now. Last night we had several admissions, codes, and after hours pages and when I came home I took a melatonin (which I never do!) and I think I'm still half-asleep! Planning worked pretty well for me, I just ended u... Read more
DAY EIGHT- MEAL PLANNING
I weighed this AM for the first time since the trip. I'm up again, unfortunately...I should have known it was coming. Not too far from my goal, and it's still very achievable. I just have to give myself some slack...I went on a road trip, for go... Read more
DAY SEVEN- PORTION CONTROL ON ROAD TRIP
My road trip was incredible!! We explored the beautiful St. Augustine and spent a wonderful girls' weekend shopping, watching movies, and attending a concert by 2Cellos. We stayed in a historic B&B called the Augustin Inn. The hostesses greeted ... Read more
DAY FOUR- I MADE IT!
I made it to my first milestone weight!! Even though I didn't truly follow a low-carb plan for the first three days, I still made it somehow.
Today was a bit of a "Celebration Day" because of my achievement....not a lot of nutrients on thi... Read more
DAY THREE- LOW CARB
I have discovered that I can't do low carb without:
1) Being famished and hangry all day long....
2) And without really planning this out ahead of time.
Once again, for the third day in a row, I ate my carbs...and I liked it.
... Read more
DAY TWO- LOW CARB
*This is a report on how yesterday went as I did not have time to update yesterday*.
Well, yesterday was a bit of a blip on my journey. I didn't follow the low-carb diet at all because I wasn't prepared, and didn't go shopping after work as... Read more

During this cycle I am going LOW CARB!! Low carb is one of the best ways to lose weight as your body immediately runs through all of the simple carbs first, and quickly moves on to protein, shortly followed by fat. Ther... Read more
