I won't feel guilty
So I partied hearty for the 4th of July. I couldn't even finish my nutrition tracker because I ate and drank so mindlessly. I am not going to let this get me down! Yes I went over on calories. I also went on a run this morning and spent a lon... Read more
Made it to the top of nevada falls!
So for my birthday my husband and I decided to go to Yosemite and hike the Mist Trail! It was intense! I really had no idea what I was in for, but the hike is so steep it makes 3 miles feel more like 100. I am really proud of myself for pushi... Read more
Had a good week
Last week went fantastic! Ran three times, went on two walks with my husband, and did wii fit twice (just for 15 minutes each). I'm definitely on the right path, and I'm glad my husband and I have worked out a program where we have to exercise... Read more
Here I go again on my yoyo...
So I completely stopped caring about being healthy as soon as the weather went cold, but I'm back and am going to take this on one step at a time.
My plan is to make a lifestyle change one week at a time, adding one new goal a week.
This w... Read more
Wow, tons of encouragement!
Although, I'm still not doing better, I'm not going to give up. It really meant a lot to me to see all those comments on my last blog.
It's really hard to get outside when it's sooooo cold, but I know that is no excuse to stop running. I nee... Read more
Not as good as I thought
I'm still not doing well. Only ran once last week, and I usually ate too much food. Well, if at first you don't succeed....
I know this puts the standard low, but I did do better this week than I did last week. So, as long as I do better ne... Read more
Well, my food is off
I used to be so good at eating balanced meals, but it looks like I'm starting over. At least today I'm under on calories, as compared to Monday and Tuesday (in which I was well over).
It took me a while last time to figure my meals out. I'... Read more
So, I completed a goal and then got completely unmotivated! I'm getting back to the diet starting Monday, and will also get back to running (I can do 2 miles now). My Goal is to log in everyday and track calories, and write two blog entries ne... Read more
Ate too much today, too little yesterday
Hands down, I must keep groceries in the fridge. If not, it's impossible to keep my diet balanced. I'm going to come up with a menu and grocery list tonight.
On the plus sign, I'm losing weight fast again. Measured in at 161 and a half this... Read more
Never Mind about that Plateau
Well, this morning I weighed in at 162. There goes my crying over not being able to break 163. Did awesome on my run today! I completed week 4, only 5 more weeks to go (which will probably take me 8-10 weeks).
I got a cookbook from the libr... Read more
Hit a Plateau!
It seems for the life of me I can not break 163 pounds! I'm so frustrated, because I've been exercising hard and expected to drop at least a pound a week. I think it's because of my eating. I just checked my nutrition tracker and only 4 out o... Read more
Still perfecting the diet
Man, when I fall off my diet, I really fall off my diet. Last weekend I had pizza, hot wings, lots of beer, hamburger, fries, and a cookie. I have to struggle so hard to lose a pound, and then I gain it right back over the weekend. I have yet... Read more
Good day, decent eating
I have to say I had a fantastic day. Started the morning with my devotions (I'm in Proverbs and I can use the wisdom), continued the morning and early afternoon with my husband running errands, found out that the hole in my tire was patchable (... Read more
Today was my first day since I restarted this program in which I was in my range on every category in nutrition! This is such an accomplishment for me, especially since lower sodium seemed impossible without starving myself. I also discovered ... Read more

little off track
Had a surprise visit from my folks (they live out of state) this weekend. Had to cancel my weekend run with my nephew, and my husband is already suffering knee problems and looks like he's out of luck for runs right now. I did my strength trai... Read more
