New Motivation (aka Baby Eva) & Taking it Slowly
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
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...
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
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
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
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
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
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...
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
- 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
New Year, New Motivation
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
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
