4/13/10 ~ Observations
Well, I did indeed try to do my Pilates work out on Saturday. The 4 year old thought it would be great fun to attack while I was doing the routine. I managed to get through some of it, but not much. Maybe 25% before I gave up. I'm going to t... Read more
4/9/10 ~ Some progress, some disappointment
The disappointment is firmly in the slow pace my body is taking to get back into shape. There was a time, though a life time ago, I could skip a meal, and drop a couple of pounds for the effort (or lack thereof). I could start a new workout ro... Read more
4/5/10 ~ Yikes!
Well, I redid my personal page. I suppose I should start the blog thing again to follow along.
Long story short, I'm sort of starting over *again*. Sometimes I think it would be easier to stay on track if I was further off track. I've be... Read more
A little progress
Okay, let's be honest. I was getting down. I've been working my butt off this month and felt like I had little to show for it. This morning, it appears that I lost somewhere between .5-1 lb. Certainly not anything to stop the presses for and... Read more
Hope for the future
I'm profoundly hopeful that our new president will be able to do something to help the economy. We'll see. I do think things will get worse before they get better, but just hoping to weather the storm.
On a health and fitness note, I feel... Read more
First week back is going well
Really, I have no negatives to post about how the first week getting back on track has gone. I've been to Planet Fitness 3x which was my goal. I started the Boot Camp challenge and that is going. I hesitate to say it is going well because man... Read more
It's all about the choices we make
Yes, I could kick myself for eating the 3 peanut carmel chocolate clusters. It puts my calorie intake over for the day by about 70. Everything else (except the sodium - going to have to focus more on that again it appears) in within the limits... Read more
Ugh - Need to re-start and the New Year is as good as any time to
I can't believe I haven't been back to blog since September! And I even had another camping trip after my last entry. I guess that helps me put in some sort of perspective how str... Read more
I love camping! ~ 9/4/08
My youngest son and I love camping. Well, the family loves camping. Okay, not so much the older 2 boys now, but at one point, all of us loved camping. My youngest and I are generally much happier when we camp. I'm not sure if it is being in ... Read more
Feeling frustrated ~ 8/26/08
Today's blog photo is my youngest. My dad took this picture the same day I took the previous blog photo, but dad got a better one. Had to share it.
I'm trying to stay focused on my plan and lose a few more pounds. I'm stuck. I guess I w... Read more
My son's first magic wand ~ 8/20/08
It isn't the greatest picture, but there he is with his first wand. He found the stick under the apple tree last week, I think it was. He announced that it was his wand. Over the course of the last week, he colored it with crayons. Then we n... Read more
Still going ~8/15/08
Let's see, managed to lose another 1 of the 4lbs I'd gained. That's a loss of 2 this week. Two more to get back to where I was. I also am rethinking my weight goal and I think I'm going to drop it to 118. The fluctuation from 121-124 made a... Read more
Gotta watch that sodium ~ 8/14/08
One of the first things I learned about my diet when I started SP was that my sodium intake was very high. I mean, there were things I thought I knew going into this. I knew my calorie count was up there. I knew that I was eating too many car... Read more
Still feeling good about the re-start ~ 8/13/08
I know. It's only day 3 and I did eat some things I shouldn't have yesterday. The thing is, it still is going the direction it should and that counts for something. It counts for a lot actually.
I ate a snack I shouldn't have yesterday, ... Read more
So far, so good ~ 8/12/08
The first day back on track went well. The hardest thing was resisting eating the left over pizza I'd made for my youngest. He fell asleep in the middle of dinner and woke up at 9 wanting to eat. I gave him his left over pizza and he ate a fe... Read more
