I've always found moderation the hardest thing. When I start to eat a food I really like, it's as though a feeding frenzy begins and I enter this altered state and couldn't stop if I wanted to. I know a lot of people handle this by simply not ke... Read more

I'm back!

Sunday, July 07, 2013      3 comments

I wonder how many blog posts on SP have been titled that same way. I've certainly seen a few myself. You get really into it, then fall off for one reason or another, then eventually make your way back and get excited again. For me I'm back... Read more

A new day

Wednesday, September 05, 2012      4 comments

Went over my calories yesterday by around 300. Trouble started in the morning. As usual I had breakfast about 7:30am and felt famished by 10:30am. I remembered that on Friday, indulging in that hunger led to eating too many calories that day. So... Read more

Confused...but going with it

Saturday, September 01, 2012      3 comments

Yesterday we went out to Pala in the LES. I ate vegan thin crust pizza with daiya cheese (dairy free, made out of plants). It was amazing. It had slivered potato and zucchini on top. How do I enter that in the food tracker? I guesstimated t... Read more

I love accidental exercise

Thursday, August 30, 2012      2 comments

Today I have a lot of running around to do. I love all the unintended exercise one gets living in NYC. For example, today I'll be walking 20 minutes to get to the train I want to take (I could take a bus to get there, but I prefer to walk). At t... Read more

Great workout today!

Just got back from the gym. I did 30 minutes of interval cardio on the elliptical, then a little over an hour of upper body weight training. I know my strength gains suffer by doing cardio first, but first and foremost I want to lose fat, so I f... Read more

Doing good today

Just got back from the gym. I had a good cardio workout. I did 30 minutes of elliptical, 12 minute of stationary bike, and 8 minutes of walking on the treadmill. Yesterday I lifted weights and did high intensity interval cardio, so today I felt ... Read more

Frustrated today

Monday, August 27, 2012      2 comments

I feel frustrated because I keep going over my calorie range. I joined SP on Wed and it's happened a few times now. My recommended calorie range is 1200-1550. I haven't gone over every day, but when I do it is anywhere from 10-200 calories. ... Read more

Are weight set points real? Dealing with those pesky last 5-10 pounds.

Sunday, August 26, 2012      1 comments

I always thought trying to lose those last 10 pounds was a good problem to have. Lately I'm wondering if part of why it's so hard is that we're really talking about going below your body's ideal set weight point. Like it or not, many of us... Read more
