Time flies when you're gaining weight...

Monday, November 21, 2011      6 comments

Time has a funny way of working... the months just fly by when I'm engaging in unhealthy habits, and the days slog by when I'm working on healthy ones! What I mean is that I recently got back into eating healthy, since Brad is not working r... Read more

Quick one at school

Tuesday, November 15, 2011      1 comments

Lots of good stuff! - Eating has been really really good. Fewer carbs, more paying attention to what I'm eating, and I feel much better. - Water drinking has been improving steadily. While I'm still not quite up to my four Siggs a day, ... Read more

It's a great day!

So the bad news is that I really haven't been that active on Spark lately. I miss catching up with everybody and I feel like I'm out of the loop on here! The good news is that my honey is taking care of me - we are eating really well, limi... Read more

Do you remember that t-shirt that Puffy wore one year? I am beat! I just got home from Power Yoga. The instructor was not the usual one, so the class was much different this week! There were SO MANY challenging parts to this class. Th... Read more

Fall back!

This past weekend I went to a wedding with a friend. We stayed at a hotel (the wedding was about an hour and a half away) - it was like a mini-vacation for us. So anyway, hotel-staying means going out to eat. And so we did. Friday nigh... Read more

Oh what a beautiful morning...

Earlier this morning I wrote a blog about how darn early 5am is! Phew! But I couldn't post it. I'm back from my swim - I did 30 minutes. I had been doing 20 minute swims for a while, but I decided to up the time. Ten minutes more ... Read more

NO-excuses NO-vember

Tuesday, November 01, 2011      10 comments

My biggest excuse (hahah - *biggest*, and I am busting out of my pants) as of late was that Brad was working all the time and it didn't matter if all I ate was Popeye's and Chinese take-out. Well, that excuse doesn't hold water in November. Br... Read more

So it's the end of the month. In October I acknowledged that I gained some weight and stopped blaming it on my clothes shrinking. I also got my honey back - he's not working right now, and it's wonderful. He's taking care of me, taking care o... Read more

Square One

This week I will: Drink all my water every day. Go to the gym before school, even if it means I have to go again after school to make it to yoga or stretch. Track/write down all my food. Those treats at school add up! Treat myself ki... Read more

It's a Fat Day.

Thursday, October 27, 2011      6 comments

So over the summer and the fall, I've put on about 5-10 pounds (depending on the day). It doesn't sound *so* bad, but it's just enough to make my pants uncomfortable, my self-esteem much lower, and my mood pretty crappy. Especially today. I p... Read more

I have a nice variety of workouts planned this week. Back to yoga and stretch class, and I'll keep going with the ST, running, and swimming. Yesterday morning honey and I drove out to a really neat place called Boulder Field (if you are northe... Read more

I can't believe it's been almost a week since I've blogged! But it's for a good reason - hubby and I have been spending some amazing quality time together! I LOVE love love having him at home. It's been so wonderful for my diet, my fitness, a... Read more

It's time for my morning swim. I think it's time for me to add on another day or two of working out each week. I also think it's time for me to hide the scale for a little bit. I know I know I know that weight doesn't just fall off when you s... Read more

No more lies!!!

Friday, October 14, 2011      13 comments

I keep telling myself some things that just aren't true. And those little lies are why I gained back about eight pounds and why I'm so uncomfortable in my pants. - I run, so I can eat what I want. Truth is, I haven't run regularly since, ... Read more
