Checking in again!
Things are going really well! I'm down 8 pounds in a little over a month. That's ok. I'm working out everyday and staying in my calorie range. We traveled to Delaware for Jim's aunt's memorial service and ate out for four meals straight, but I c... Read more
Creating a Hike-Ready Body!
I love my hikes. I love my beautiful, beautiful woods in gorgeous New Jersey. I am MISSING my hikes. When the weather was nice in summer and fall, I was hiking once a week... Read more
Just checking in!
I've been at this for a couple weeks now and it's getting better! My workouts have been going great. Eating under my calorie range is tough but I know how to do it and I know that I need to learn that self-control all over again.
That's all... Read more
So glad for a good goal!
So today is day 4 of fighting the compulsive eating beast. Day 1 was easy, the other three so far have been tough. First, it's such a habit to eat, it's soothing, it's comforting. It's what I do to feel cozy on these cold days, to celebrate with... Read more
It's the new year and I'm starting again! I know that's so unoriginal but it's just the right time. Jim and I have a new goal together! To to give ourselves some incentive, we've each chosen a weight loss goal to meet by April 4. He wants to los... Read more
Well I got frustrated after two weeks of eating 1200 calories a day and working out an hour a day six days a week, and gaining .5 pounds. So I took a break. I've gained two pounds back (including that .5 pounds) working out sporadically and eati... Read more
I don't want just one brownie, I want ALL the brownies.
My husband is a former smoker who quit almost 20 years ago. A couple years ago, we were talking about it, and he said he never wanted to start smoking again because he knew he wouldn't just want one cigarette, he wanted all the cigarettes. He wa... Read more
Lost another pound!
I needed that! Boy, did I need that. My lower calorie intake is paying off and it gives me the inspiration to keep it up! I'm 5 pounds from my usual maintenance range, 10 pounds from a weight I would be confident with, and 17 pounds from my goal... Read more
I'm determined to kick BUTT
Well I got frustrated and angry and WHATEVER when I weighed in on Thursday after a great week of tracking and measuring and adding in a sixth hour of cardio for the week and saw NOTHING good on the scale.
But I'm here and determined not to... Read more
Doing really good!
Hi all! Well I refocused on Thursday and have been doing what I set out to do, even with Valentine's Day and candy! I've been staying under 1550 calories a day, added in my Saturday workout, and have been tracking and measuring and weighing hone... Read more
Unsurprisingly, I didn't have a loss this week. I'd even mentally prepared for a gain, but THANKFULLY that didn't happen! I was tracking, but not honestly. I was picking at food and overeating, not measuring what I was actually eating and that a... Read more
This is going slooooooowwwww...
Ugh. One pound a week loss for three weeks. It is SO irritating and SO frustrating and it's really made me start thinking about giving up. Of course I'm NOT giving up. Thinking about the time it will take before I can feel good about myself... y... Read more
Wanting to find my passion!
Besides my husband, of course. If I could lay around with him all day every day - problem solved!
What I mean is, I want to feel passionate about work, or a hobby, or something! A few years ago it was political ideology. I read and read and... Read more
Still hanging in there!
We got a ton of snow yesterday, and more is coming tonight! That really has nothing to do with why I'm writing a blog but it's just amazing to me! Everybody keeps telling me that this is the worst winter in decades, and that we moved here just i... Read more
A pound is a pound!
Third week at this and second week in a row only losing one pound. Sigh! It's frustrating but I'll take it! If I stay at the rate I've been going, I'll be at the bottom of my maintenance range by my goal date, instead of the ten pounds below tha... Read more
