Started smoothies for breakfast today. Overall, not doing too bad but not doing well on posting and tracking. I've been doing smoothies for a month or so but just as an addition. Now I think I'll try them as a breakfast because I am SO bad ab... Read more

This is so funny, I could almost just change the date and keep the blog entry from last December. It seems July and December are my times to get serious, but that only lasts a month or so. Never did the zumba even the 1st time, still eating pr... Read more

I found all the poundage I lost the last 2 weeks with yesterday's festivities. I would like to think it's because I had so much salt yesterday, so I guess we'll see next Sunday. Anyway, it's not a make or break thing like it would have been in... Read more

Ate battered fish for dinner and can't even handle the batter, gives me bad stomach cramps. Who knew? Been doing well all week, dropped a couple pounds I think but mostly just not having a lot of cravings. If I wasn't snowed in I would go out... Read more

I started the paleo plan off and on after Atkins, going to get it together and quit going off it. I feel much better on, IBS isn't as bad on it and I don't have the body aches on it that I usually do. Have Atkins to thank for finding that out.... Read more

Wow, stayed on Atkins for almost 2 weeks and was doing okay, lost a few pounds, but can't take the lack of carbs. I felt pretty good at first but then the first sugar I had which was actually about 1 week into it, I got some free Atkins bars an... Read more

Weighed myself this morning, decided to start doing Sunday mornings instead of Monday mornings, down just under 10 pounds since starting this. In researching new scales figured out that all mine needed was a new battery (about 5 years on old ba... Read more

Got up feeling good this morning, was dancing to the music on the Weather Channel and the cats were all looking at me like they couldn't figure out what was going on - didn't realize it had been so long since I'd felt good! Scales are getting r... Read more

Not down but not up. Didn't track as religiously, got tired of tv dinners and cooked. Brownies over the weekend, whole pan but spaced them out soas not to do too much damage. Still need to find the WW desserts or something to kick my sweet cr... Read more
Not a good week all in all

Fell off the wagon this week, stress at work, stress at home, stress bad, food good! Work is crappy, both jobs. My full-time boss got fired and my part-time job went back to that crappy little account with no money so I'm thinking about qu... Read more

Actually did it yesterday, water walked and according to the Livestrong calculations burned just under 800 calories! Yippee! Having a hard time staying under that 2000 mg sodium restriction eating TV dinners, but I want to get used to smaller ... Read more
