Update: Another 2.4lbs down
Wednesday, September 02, 2015      4 comments

So I've meant to blog since my weigh in on Monday, but have not gotten the chance. So, here's an update. After my day of bread and dreading the scale, I was happy to see that I still had a loss of 2.4lbs. So I didn't completely sabotage myself. ... Read more

I've seriously been dreading work. For the most part, I do like my job. I've been working for the same company for 15 years. But lately, the pressure and stress has been getting the best of me. I've been off my anxiety med's for a few months now... Read more

So Tuesday and Wednesday were down right awful. It was crazy crazy crazy at work. I managed to eat good and still count my calories and drink my water. But I didn't get remotely close to my step goal on either day and didn't workout. It's not of... Read more
Bye Bye Lbs!

So I was excited to see the scale down another 4lbs. Made me feel better about my book club night. It was a long stressful workday, I was so tempted to crawl in bed and stay there all night- but I went to the gym instead. I know things won't cha... Read more

So I didn't get a chance to blog the past two days but I did okay this weekend. Friday I took my little one to the pool. We walked there and back. I really swam and jogged around the pool while she played. We walked to pick up my son from school... Read more
Feeling drained- but still rocked it!

So, after blogging this morning, I went downstairs and ate breakfast (special K w/ unsweetened almond milk) and then decided it was time to hit the gym. I had an appointment at 1pm and had to be to work by 3pm- so I knew that this was my window.... Read more

I again was too tired to blog last night. Yesterday was a good day. I drank all my water and got all my steps in. I did go over my calories by 50- but I know not to make that mistake again. I had a yogurt covered blueberry that turned into 2 tha... Read more

This is my blog from yesterday and I just simply was too exhausted to do it. Yesterday was our annual golf tournament for CMN. So I was a volunteer all day. No, I didn't golf. I was helping put together everything, loading coolers with drin... Read more
Didn't reach my goal... But did!

Today is the first day I've not gotten my step goal of 10k. Since coming back... I'm about 4k short. But I'm choosing sleep over exercise this time. I only got 4.5 hrs of sleep last night and I have a long day tomorrow so sleep it is. On a ... Read more

So, I worked today, as I do all Sundays. I left the house at 9am and got home at about 7pm. I made sure to pack all my food and drink all my water and walk every extra chance I got. I left work with 8.5k steps. So, not a bad day. But when I walk... Read more
Saturday is a Lazy Day

At least that's what I used to think and it almost turned out that way, but I turned it around... I had promised the kids that we could go to the pool in the morning. So instead of driving there, we walked there. We played in the pool for a... Read more

Yes, I'm singing that song, in my head as I type this. First I'm a little frustrated. I was able to do a mobile blog post yesterday and can't do one today. I have an iPhone. Does anyone else have this issue? I had to come down to the husbands du... Read more
Busy Day- Turned into a Great Day
Friday, August 14, 2015      5 comments

So today was one of those really busy days. A day I would normally use as an "excuse" as to why I couldn't workout or eat right. But not today! Nope! These gloves are on and I'm fighting for this, no matter how busy my day is. First, I had ... Read more
Calories on point
Wednesday, August 12, 2015      7 comments

I've been tracking everything that goes in my mouth, even gum. This is day two of staying within my calorie intake. I've honestly been making good choices too. My coffee has been black with a single Splenda pack. No Starbucks stops. Which is a g... Read more
Looking for an accountability buddy
Wednesday, August 12, 2015      5 comments

So, I'm back. Again. I seem to recall the last time I was successful at this, I had an accountability buddy. Someone who motivated and/or checked in on me every day- and I did the same for them. At one point I had a group of about 10 accountabil... Read more
