New Motivation (aka Baby Eva) & Taking it Slowly
Friday, April 25, 2014      4 comments

I am trying to gradually get back into healthy habits after having my daughter 2 weeks ago. I was too tired to exercise at all during the pregnancy, so it's been a while. Also, since she's been born, we've barely been able to cook a real meal. I... Read more
My Usual Sunday Motivation
Sunday, April 14, 2013      2 comments

Yet again, I am re-committing (like most Sundays). I want to be healthy and active. I just haven't managed to do it yet. This morning I weighed in at 196.6 and 42.2% body fat (Yikes!). I know I got here by eating too much and not moving enough.... Read more
Ready to do it right!

Same old story for last week. I rocked Monday and then gave up for the rest of the week because life got in the way. However, today I decided that I am ready to live the life I've been dreaming of. I want to be a runner, so I will start ex... Read more
I've Been Bad...
Sunday, March 24, 2013      1 comments

And I'm up 3 pounds because of it. We ate so much junk food this week and I didn't exercise at all (well maybe 1 day). I have identified a few things that I know threw me off track. 1 - Hubby was depressed on Tuesday. And even though I know... Read more
Started out strong and fizzled...

I started out strong last week, earning 4 out of 5 of my stickers on Monday... then 3 on Tuesday... 2 on Wednesday... I ended up with a total of 11/35 = 31%. Not so good! We made the mistake of ordering pizza on Wednesday, didn't eat it all so h... Read more
Getting Back on Track After a Very Rough Week
Sunday, March 03, 2013      1 comments

So I haven't really been doing much exercise for the past few weeks. I was tired most days by the time I got home from work and with the changes in my body, I suspected I was pregnant. We got a positive pregancy test two weeks ago and I made my ... Read more
Despite a Binge, Down 2 lbs
Sunday, February 03, 2013      3 comments

Yesterday, I went a little (ok a lot) overboard on my eating. I did track it though (3,352 calories - Yikes!!). Despite that, I am down 2 lbs this week (to 191.4). I had actually weighed myself yesterday morning and was down to 189. Oh well. I'l... Read more
Working on a Better Week
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      1 comments

Last week was a complete bust. I didn't get a single sticker (well, I didn't track anything at all). Stress at work & an argument with my hubby led me astray. Also, since I knew I would be away all weekend, I kind of gave up. Getting back ... Read more

This week is not starting out very good. The main stressor is work and it's throwing me off balance. I had a new task added to my job description last week (I need to verify 20% of 2 of my colleagues' work) which is fine. But on top of that, the... Read more
Week of Jan 14 - Close Enough
Sunday, January 20, 2013      1 comments

So this week I got 19/35 stickers which is 54%. (5 for jogging, 3 for 30DS, 1 for Stretch, 7 for tracking & 3 for dishes). Not quite what I was aiming for (60%) but close enough. I will give myself a French manicure tomorrow night (no time left... Read more
Week of Jan 7 - Yikes
Monday, January 14, 2013      0 comments

Well, I did much worse on my goals for the week of the 7th. I only got 3/20 stickers (15%). I didn't jog at all and I only did my weights/stretching once. The other sticker I earned was for cleaning my apartment on Sunday. So very disappointing.... Read more
I Almost Didn't...But then I did...
Monday, January 07, 2013      1 comments

Do some exercise! Yay for me! I met my sister after work and had some errands to do so by the time I got home and ate dinner, it was 9:30pm. So I told myself out of consideration for my neighbours (consideration they never seem to show us... but... Read more
Goals - Week of Jan 7
Sunday, January 06, 2013      0 comments

- Didn't do so great last week. Could have been worse. If I get all my stickers today, I'll have gotten 12/30 (not counting Monday since I was gone all day). Planning on doing better this week. Goals for this week: 1 - Jogging: 5 times.... Read more

That new year energy is in the air. Everyone is motivated to start fresh, myself included. We will be starting trying to conceive this month, so that's adding a bit more excitement and motivation. I am yet again trying to focus on getting health... Read more
Getting Out of the "I Don't Wanna" Phase
Wednesday, December 05, 2012      1 comments

It's been a little over a week since I exercised and tracked my food. I haven't gone all out crazy foodwise. I just haven't felt like doing any of it. Every time, I think "I should do X", my mind responds with "I don't wanna". Yes, very much lik... Read more
