Popcorn is not dinner
Wednesday, May 07, 2014      2 comments

I had an excellent evening at the movie. But note to self... Popcorn is not dinner. While I managed to stay under my calorie goals, I doubt I reached my nutritional goals by having popcorn for dinner. I didn't bother looking at what my fat ended... Read more
My two hobbies...
Tuesday, May 06, 2014      3 comments

I'm a busy girl... I work 45-50 hr weeks, I workout 1-2 hours per day and I have two kids. So it's not often that I get to take a break and/or have time to. But for my own happiness I make the time to have fun and enjoy my hobbies. I like readin... Read more

Sundays = no activity
Sunday, May 04, 2014      3 comments

Seriously... Sundays are my least productive days (exercise wise). I will forever complain about them... bright side, it's a great day for work, catch up, etc. It's fine.... I'll keep moving! ... Read more
Book Club Night
Saturday, May 03, 2014      0 comments

I meet with a book club once every 6 weeks. It's my time to relax and kick back, drink wine and chat with friends. It's not the best day calorie wise. I'll have to be careful today so that tonight isn't that bad. I'm not sure if I'll get the cha... Read more

Today was the first day I really feel like I got a good burn in a long time. I got on the elliptical and really pushed. I was hesitant, because of my knee, but everything was fine and it felt fantastic. Hopefully it was just a one time fluke kin... Read more

I'm proud that I weighed in every morning in April. After this little experiment, I know now, that I'm a different person this time around than I was the first time around. I'm not haunted by the scale. I don't get completely depressed or freak ... Read more

So the knee injury set me back in terms of my consistency. One week gym free set me on a slippery slope. I'm determined not to let it derail me completely! I packed my gym clothes and plan on hitting it on my way home from work! Slow and steady,... Read more

So I went to the dr. She checked out my knee along with many other things. The good news is that thanks to me taking several days off from the gym, there was no pain or swelling. She moved it around and it wasn't catching on anything. The only r... Read more

So I'm not sure how bad of an injury I have. But I know I did something.... I was on the elliptical doing my normal routine when I felt a pop in my right knee. It was not painful or anything... But still I got off and flexed, stretched, moved a... Read more

Yesterday was a busy work day. We were hosting VP's from our corporate office. So we had a catered lunch and went out for a fancy dinner. Not the best day calorie wise. I had known the day would be packed with food, etc. So I was sure to pack my... Read more
I'm okay....
Tuesday, April 15, 2014      4 comments

So after my binge and TOM hitting and the weigh in yesterday, I'm feeling better this morning. My first week of this challenge (of weighing daily) was so great, that it made my second week disappointing. Every day is different. Every week is dif... Read more

So, I was bad last night. I went over my calories and overate. I didn't understand why until I got up this morning! Stupid TOM! Makes me crave salty fatty crap that my body doesn't need and makes the scale move in the wrong direction. I've got a... Read more
