Well, I did it. Today I reset my SparkPeople goals completely to keep track of my diet with increased calories. Even though I said it was unsustainable, when I tried to track out tomorrow's meals under the new plan, I realized that I had actua... Read more
Two Blogs in One Day!
Yeah, that bored.
Okay, today's intermittent fast was a little rougher than I expected. Or maybe it was just because dinner was so freaking late! My stylist sent me a text saying that I could come in at 3:45 instead of 4:30 due to a cance... Read more
Back on Track
I have successfully spent the last couple of days eating paleo-style and in my carb range! I've also successfully not stepped on the scale since I got back from Florida, which in turn has made me a little less paranoid about the food I eat. So... Read more
Disclaimer: This is a long entry!
Vacations are always too short! I got back today from a week in Floriday with my parents, husband, brother, and his long-time girlfriend. Given that it was family, we definitely had our ups and downs, but... Read more
Yay, today hubby and I are going on vacation with the rest of my family -- parents, brother, and his girlfriend. I am totally back to where I was before my big binge last week, and actually I was surprised that eating a little more these last f... Read more
Let's see, today I obviously ate a little more than I expected. It doesn't worry me, though, because of the caloric deficit I created the last few days -- I've lost most of the weight I put on from my super-splurge, and in spite of what I ate t... Read more
Work Hard, Play Hard
Alright, I did a lot of damage on Thursday and Friday eating cookies and chips. I'll admit, they tasted REALLY good, but I got back on track an actually have reduced my calories even more this week to make up for it. So far, so good. Hubby an... Read more
Another Big Leap Back
Wow, I'm not sure exactly what started it, but today I have decided to fully recover from a two-day food binge. It started on Thursday with the ice cream, cookies, and chips, and it continued yesterday with more cookies and chips. I won't reco... Read more
One Leap Back
Well, I was doing a good job keeping up with my diet until today. Something about hanging out with Diane yesterday (I stayed overnight), and coming back today just triggered a chow-fest. I think it was because I wasn't home to actually make th... Read more
Well, I'm glad I've been giving myself only smiley-face days even though I was good for a full week. I got in contact with a friend of mine who I know is leaving for boot camp in about two weeks. She enlisted in the Navy as a musician, which I... Read more
Another Good Day
Today I was at the high end of my calories and nutrients, but that's okay! I only had four calories to spare, and I think only 2 grams of carbs and maybe 2-4 grams protein. I had some more room for fat, but that's okay. I even had to chow dow... Read more
Somehow over the past few weeks my mental attitude about treats has shifted. It used to be that when I was doing well, I would treat myself to an evening at El Guapo's with my hubby, or a pint of Ben and Jerry's (so stereotypical, I know), or n... Read more
Do You See the Benefits of Planning Ahead?
I decided to take the forum topic and expand on it a little more in my blog today. The short answer is, absolutely, I wouldn't be successful without planning ahead.
Mostly I need to plan ahead with my food, especially since my calories and... Read more
Today was intermittent fasting day no. 2 for this week. Only two a week.
I only felt the hunger hit a few times today. Actually, when I finally decided to make dinner, I actually had to make it a conscious decision because at the time I w... Read more
Happy Belated Birthday
My husband's birthday was last month, but because I was super-busy playing, performing, recording, and going to a conference, I was unable to make him a birthday dinner. That's kind of our birthday present to each other. Instead of buying some... Read more
