My fast food solution to a time crunch this weekend.

Saturday, December 08, 2012      2 comments

I'm too busy to cook this weekend, so I stopped at Taco Bell and bought a bunch of chicken burrito supremes ~400 cals each. I know that's a lot per burrito, but if I only eat 3 per day, that should put me right at my limit for calories, and get... Read more

It's crunch time...not munch time!

So I have 2 big exams next week, and as I start into the heavy review required, I find myself going over my calories in the evening. Something about the fear of failing seems to be a trigger for my stress eating, and I don't want to erase all my... Read more

Kept it together today

Monday, December 03, 2012      2 comments

I got up early, I packed my breakfast/lunch, I fed my dog, I grabbed my backpack, jumped in the truck...I got 30 minutes down the road for an early anatomy lab session and realized I had left my breakfast & lunch in a mini cooler on my kitchen c... Read more

My new trick for getting more water

Sunday, December 02, 2012      6 comments

I've been doing really poorly at this until recently, I must confess. I much prefer to just drink coffee and diet cokes all day, because I've needed the extra caffeine to keep me going this past year. But I'm trying to lose the weight, and I kno... Read more

Another small loss feels like another big victory :)

That scale is so fickle! One week it hardly moves at all, and the next I get three big dips in three days. Now admittedly, last week was Thanksgiving week, and although I think I was pretty good, I wasn't saintly. So I guess just maintaining my ... Read more

Finally broke 150

Friday, November 30, 2012      8 comments

So I weighed in at 149.6 this morning, which isn't much less than 150 (my first goal, which I blogged about last time)...but somehow being 149.6 is so much better than being 150. I have typically fluctuated between 135 and 145 for most of my a... Read more

First goal!

Wednesday, November 28, 2012      2 comments

I've lost 6 lbs. It's not a wow kind of loss...but it's almost got me back to what I call a normal range for me. I still want to lose another 25 lbs. But when I think of it mathematically, I'm 1/6th of the way to my overall goal. Read more

I love this pedometer!

Tuesday, November 27, 2012      4 comments

I just tuck it into the pocket of my vest (which I wear all the time with the cold weather). It tracks all my steps, and I don't even think about it being there. The way it's designed so you don't have to clip it to anything is great! And it's ... Read more

Omron HJ-321 Tri-Axis Pedometer + safety leash - $20

Saturday, November 24, 2012      4 comments

So I finally bought myself a pedometer. This isn't particularly exciting stuff for blogging purposes...but I'm excited. I've wanted one since my first pedometer broke about five years ago. It's one of those funny things I've noticed about mysel... Read more

Thanksgiving reviewed

Friday, November 23, 2012      1 comments

So, I have to admit my last blog was pretty negative. I was clearly feeling stressed by the memories of other holidays when I had given in to temptation in a big, big way. It seems to be a part of the family experience for me to stress eat, and ... Read more

The holidays seem to bring out all my insecurities.

So, Turkey Day is tomorrow, and although I'm not cooking this year, I'm still feeling stressed. It's a trip to my boyfriends' aunt's house for the feast, and all of his family will be there, some 40 or so people. Even though I've lost about 4 lb... Read more

I tried a little zumba

Tuesday, November 20, 2012      1 comments

I've been wanting to try it for quite some time...never seemed to have the time, money, etc., etc...So today it occurred to me that I should look online for youtube videos (which are free), and of course there are plenty of routines out there. S... Read more

Baked tilapia for dinner

Saturday, November 17, 2012      3 comments

We defrosted a couple of 4 oz tilapia filets and baked them on 350 for 1/2 hr with a little cooking spray, 2 tsp's of lemon juice, lemon pepper, garlic & onion powder + a generous layer of coriander. Yum! And super low on calories. We served the... Read more

Some less terrible margarine choices...

So I recently finished up my Cardiology phase in medical school, and I've spent a lot of time thinking about fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, calories...and heart disease, stroke, peripheral vascular disease, and the rather well-documented conne... Read more

And I'm back.

Monday, November 12, 2012      0 comments

So I got into medical school a little over a year ago, which was a tremendous victory in my life...unfortunately the stress and the sedentary lifestyle of studying day and night have piled the pounds onto me worse that it's been for several, sev... Read more
