Saturday, May 07, 2011      10 comments

Today starts the Spring Challenge - I am on the A Team. I've done a number of these 5% weight loss challenges and thoroughly enjoy them. I've met great people on the teams, and enjoy having an area of focus each week. But if I'm honest with m... Read more

Looking Ahead to April

Monday, April 04, 2011      2 comments

I feel like March has a been a month of beginnings, and I'm looking forward to continuing some good actions into April and seeing what results it may bring. I've known for some time now that while I could certainly be eating less calories ... Read more

Slight success

Thursday, February 24, 2011      5 comments

I returned last night from a long vacation weekend, and LOST HALF A POUND!!! I'm thrilled. I think it's because I was so good with my water and exercise - even achieving my first 10k step day while I was on vacation. Great feeling not to be s... Read more

Keeping up the movement

Monday, February 21, 2011      1 comments

Getting the exercise/movement into my day has been such a challenge for me. I'm proud of myself that I got out and went on a number of walks yesterday. I didn't hit 10k steps again, but I did get over 7k and it felt great to keep up a higher ... Read more

Finally - hit and crossed the 10,000 steps a day mark!

MId January, I bought a pedometer. I thought that hitting 10k steps a day should be no problem. Wow - what an eye opener to how sedentary my lifestyle is with an office job. The pedometer has been so helpful to understanding how much more I n... Read more

I'm getting motivated

Saturday, February 19, 2011      4 comments

I'm getting true motivation, finally. Not the kind where you feel like you should move, you should make the right choices. I actually am. Getting moving has been so very hard for me. I have a demanding job, and when I get home, I want to rel... Read more

Need to take some time out to reflect this week

Monday, September 27, 2010      2 comments

I think I need to take some time out to reflect this week on "why" this journey of losing weight and getting healthy is important. I know what I need to do. I'm just not doing it. For one, I need to get moving and exercise. I've lost the wei... Read more

Getting it together

Saturday, September 25, 2010      7 comments

I'm looking forward to starting another 5% challenge with the Ladybugs team. By far my biggest downfall has been exercising. It's been a good week if I get in one day. My travel schedule and work hours right now are extreme, and any waking m... Read more

Day 1 of travel - so far, so good!

Wednesday, August 18, 2010      3 comments

Yesterday, I was lamenting how I keep gaining and losing the same 5 pounds and am not making progress overall, and need to get more disciplined in my exercise and eating - especially while I'm traveling. Day 1 of travel went well! While I ... Read more

Sigh . . . getting frustrated

Tuesday, August 17, 2010      7 comments

I woke up this morning and weighed myself, and I've gained the same pounds back. I feel like I've been losing and gaining the same 5'ish pounds over and over and over again now for months. It's getting discouraging. I am certainly not getting... Read more

Excited and Nervous

Thursday, March 18, 2010      3 comments

Hi everyone. I'm progressing thru the week on an even keel. Days earlier this week were very low in calarie (too low) and yesterday was a huge calarie day, but that's fine as I am looking to evening over the long haul and not getting upset abo... Read more

Starting off the week right with exercise

Monday, March 15, 2010      4 comments

I'm feeling pretty good. I was so sick last week, recovering Friday and over the weekend, and made it to the gym this morning before work - yippee!!! It's been way too long since I've driven to the gym before work when I'm not traveling. It's... Read more

Seeing new numbers on the scale

Sunday, March 14, 2010      6 comments

For the longest time, I've been hovering around the 225 range. I'd lose a few, then gain a few, and essentially just hover between 221 - 225. Finally, over the past two weeks, I've had a drop to 215 (even 214.5!) after being more conscio... Read more

For the longest time, I've been hovering around the 225 range. I'd love a few, then gain a few, and essentially just hover between 221 - 225. Finally, over the past two weeks, I've had a drop to 215 (even 214.5!) after being more conscio... Read more

Being Sick and Eating Comfort Food

Thursday, March 11, 2010      5 comments

I'm so frustrated. I did just fantastic last week and lost a good amount of weight - I saw numbers on the scale that I haven't seen in years!!! Then, I go out of town for work and come down with the worst cold I think I've ever had. I think I... Read more
