Week 5, BLC 17 WUB, Fitness Plan - All rolled into one!
So I have this confession. I lost another 2.6 lbs this week, but I didn't really do anything to accomplish this. I know I really shouldn't be questioning this too hard. I should just celebrate, but it is frustrating when in the past I have worke... Read more
Weeks 2,3, and uh...4--aka "The weeks when nothing happened"
Week 2: virus
Week 3: wisdom tooth pulled
Week 4: first week of the semester at a new school, and an out of town wedding
Needless to say, I haven't been paying attention to food or exercising. I would say the virus is probably the... Read more
Week 1...duhn, duhn DUHN!
It is the end of week 1 for me. And what an interesting week it has been. I started off strong, tracking all of my food and completing the January Jumpstart videos for days 1, 2 and 3. My calories were going down each day, and I was making prett... Read more
I think we have all heard time and again that it is not all about what the scale says. Therefore, I am going to measure my success in as many different ways as I can think of:
Starting Weight: 281 lbs
Waist: 51 inches
Hips: 55.5 inch... Read more
The Familiar End-of-the-Year Post
It seems like this is the time of year when everyone starts getting geared up for the new year, the new beginning, the new "me!" As I sit here, reading over my past blogs I find that I am feeling wistful in a way. I like what I am reading, but I... Read more
BLC #15 Reflection Blog, and Pledge
The BLC was a lot of fun. It was unique and interesting each week. There were a lot of wonderful and supportive people on the team that made this really worth it.
The only reason I did not reach the goals I wanted was me. It was all me, an... Read more
Fell Off the Wagon
I don't even know if "fell" is the right word. More like I dipped a toe off, just to see what would happen, then I jumped off and sprinted in the other direction. For the past three weeks I have not been tracking food, I have not been working ou... Read more
BLC #15 - August MGB

BLC #15 Week 3 - WUB
I'm a little late on this, was busy at a wonderful birthday party yesterday. At which I did not overindulge, but I did stay out waaaay too late. It was worth it though.

BLC #15 Week 2 - WUB
1. Participate in BLC #15: I would say mission accomplished this week. I met all of the challenges, and earned most of the points possible. There was a day or two where I did not stay within my ranges, but it was very minimal. There was no all o... Read more

BLC #15 - Monthly Goals
1. Participate in this challenge - this may seem like a simple enough goal, but as many of us have seen it is SO easy to just simply not do what we set out to do. It is easy to turn on the TV instead of a Sparkpeople video, or to eat a little mo... Read more
Learning the word "No"
I'm setting a different kind of goal to work on for the next week. I'm going to learn to say "No." Not your typical goal, but I think this will really help me in achieving what I want to achieve.
The other day a friend of mine was going ou... Read more
I didn't do EVERYTHING
I was sort of feeling down earlier today. As I looked over my entries from the week I realized I didn't work out as many minutes, or burn as many calories as last week. I didn't swim everyday, and I waited until the last minute to do my daily vi... Read more
