Progress!

Sunday, January 20, 2013      2 comments

Here it is, January 20th and I've been doing great with all of my goals. Amazing! I've been working out - hard - five days a week and watching what I eat. The first two weeks I tracked EVERY morsel. I ate 1500 calories/day and, in the end, I ... Read more

Monday, December 24, 2012      2 comments

Back to Square One (again)

Monday, October 08, 2012      2 comments

Ugh. I'm back to square one again. I just took the family to three days at the Great Wolf Lodge. We just arrived home and I just weighed myself and I'm back to my starting weight - again. Ugh. First the good: For the first 1.5 days, I ... Read more

Those daggone chips!

Tuesday, October 02, 2012      2 comments

It happened. I ate some chips again. I did everything right - almost. I ate my afternoon snack a little later than usual, but I wasn't terribly hungry. But when I prepared my son's snack bags for tomorrow, I just couldn't resist and at... Read more

I did it! Two pounds lost!

Monday, October 01, 2012      1 comments

Drum roll please.....I lost two pounds this past week! To be precise, I lost 2.6 pounds! I'm thrilled! That means that now I'm only two pounds over my "starting weight" (grin)! But in my ever over-analytical way, it's worth looking at ... Read more

The end of the first week

Sunday, September 30, 2012      1 comments

It's Sunday night. For me that means that it's the end of the week. But this is a special week. It's the end of my first week of eating right and exercising. Tomorrow morning I get on the scale and see how I did. I'm nervous. I feel li... Read more

gluten = tiredness?

Sunday, September 30, 2012      0 comments

Maybe it was that I didn't sleep well last night. Actually, I was hungry. After a while, when it started to really affect my sleep, I got up, went downstairs, and got myself a bowl of cereal. That usually puts me to sleep. I also had a piece... Read more

My former self

Saturday, September 29, 2012      2 comments

I met a woman that reminds me of my former self. I met her a few weeks ago when I started taking my oldest son to his orchestra rehearsals. He meets on Saturday mornings for 1.5 hours. That's plenty of time for me to get in some really good e... Read more

Exhaustion

Saturday, September 29, 2012      2 comments

So yesterday I learned something new. Yesterday, my middle child came to work with me in the afternoon. On a normal day, I have a snack of apple and peanut butter at around 3. That snack helps me get through the rest of the afternoon so th... Read more

Day Three

Thursday, September 27, 2012      1 comments

I'm cautiously optimistic. It's day three. That means that for the past three days I've been eating and exercising right. I've been trying to lose weight for two years now (!) only to actually gain weight. I've been at day three before. But... Read more

Motivated!

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      0 comments

Now I'm motivated! I started exercising again. I used to love running. I still do even though it's much harder to run with all these extra pounds on me. But I'm doing it. It just feels so good. I haven't lost any weight yet, but my mot... Read more

Laying My Cards On The Table

Sunday, January 15, 2012      3 comments

It's a new year and a way to start over with a clean slate. I'm going to start by laying my cards on the table. Here it goes: One of the things holding me back is my own confidence - or lack of it. Why do I feel like, no matter what, I'm... Read more

Frustrated

Friday, March 04, 2011      1 comments

I've been at this weight loss thing for over two months now and I've barely lost five pounds. I've been eating all the right foods. Lots of lean protein, vegetables and some fruit. Low carbs. I've been writing down every single morsel that g... Read more

Progress

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      2 comments

I took a Tae Kwon Do class on Monday night that was filled with only black belts. I just started, so being the only beginner in a class of such experienced folk was really intimidating to me. To add to the intimidation, prior to this class, an... Read more

What I've learned So Far..

Sunday, February 27, 2011      2 comments

For me, I can read it in a book, on a Web page, or someone can tell me, but I don't truly learn it until I experience it. Guess I'm hard-headed. So I've learned two big things so far: 1. It's exercise that makes the weight come off and ... Read more
