I haven't been completely honest...
Sunday, June 18, 2017      3 comments

I haven't checked in for a few weeks, and I've had my reasons. Well, one specific reason, really. I'm no longer on a weight loss journey. That would not be healthy for me at this time. Instead I'm on maintenance, and might even allow a little bi... Read more
I lost a whole pound!
Thursday, May 25, 2017      4 comments

FINALLY! I saw the scale move! I did not expect to see any progress, especially because I got lazy and didn't track my food for the last 2 days, but thanks to being a pound down, I am refreshed and newly inspired to keep doing the right things. ... Read more
Hoping I'm on the right track

This week I weighed in .3 pounds less than the week before. Not a big win, but a little one. I'll take a little one if I can get anther little win, and then another, and then another... I didn't do much of anything differently, and actually th... Read more
Oh, Come ON! (Or OFF, as it were)
Tuesday, May 09, 2017      1 comments

Weighed in today (forgot on Monday morning, but Sunday I did not stay in my intake allotment, so it might be for the best), and I am once again holding steady. COME ON! Even on "cheat days" when I'm not staying strictly within my intended c... Read more
Thought I was discouraged; Turns out I'm OK
Monday, May 01, 2017      1 comments

I got on the scale this morning for my weekly check in, and I thought that I had actually gone UP over the last week despite tracking my food, staying well under my calorie burn as estimated by my Fitbit, and WAY surpassing my daily step goals. ... Read more
Guess who's back?

Here I am, a few years later, and ready to get back to it. Since my last post, I shed several pounds, got pregnant, put on too many pounds, had a baby, enjoyed a nice "it didn't come on overnight, and I won't lose it overnight" period of abou... Read more
Now I did it...

...and "it" is not a good thing. I have added back all 25 pounds that I lost last year. On the one hand, I'm glad I know now, instead of another 5 pounds from now. On the other hand... ugh. So, tonight I will pack my gym bag, and tomorrow I ... Read more
Did it!

Today, for the first time in 6 months, I went to the gym. I ran into my co-worker there. She is fit and toned, and I very much admire her physical wellness. Yes, genetics has something to do with it (she is nearly a foot taller than me, so her m... Read more
Accountability - I need you, reader!

Tomorrow I will go to the gym before work. It will be, I think, the first time this calendar year that I achieve that simple goal. The reason I will go and do that is because I am writing it here, and someone will read it, and then I will be acc... Read more
Whatever happened to my endless energy?
Thursday, May 15, 2014      1 comments

My weight loss this year has not been as quick and dramatic as last years'. I know the reasons: I'm not going to the gym (working out at home and at the fitness room in my office), I'm not as energetic this year (still figuring out the reason th... Read more
Back on the wagon!

I love my Fitbit, and I lost it on March 15th. I was at a public arena to watch the Harlem Globetrotters (it was a really fun show! I am so glad I got to go!) and when we got back to the car, I patted myself down to check my steps for the day, a... Read more
Truth-telling to Myself
Friday, January 10, 2014      0 comments

Adding the Aria to my wellness routine is all about telling myself the truth about my wellness, and deciding what I want to do, and am willing to do, to improve my current state of health and ability. Stepping on for the first time was intimidat... Read more
Today, I add the Aria
Friday, January 03, 2014      0 comments

I received a Fitbit Aria (the super fancy scale) for Christmas, and today I am going to figures it out. I tried to tell myself that I would start using it on New Year's Day, but I got scared. Today I will do as deep clean of the master bath, whi... Read more
I'm ok with looking crazy
Thursday, September 26, 2013      0 comments

I kicked my shoes off, picked them up, and proceeded to dance like the girl in Flashdance. I even softly sang "she's a maniac, maaaaaniac that's for sure..." as I pumped my arms and legs with enthusiasm. I was looking crazy, and I didn't let it ... Read more
Slipping up
Thursday, September 19, 2013      1 comments

Nothing tragic, and probably can be blamed on the long weekend in the mountains with WAY too much food at every meal, but I'm up by 5 lbs. I'm not feeling tragic, but I am bummed. Bummed is the first step toward motivation for me, so I'm interpr... Read more
