Proof that Scales Don't Tell the Whole Story

Wednesday, January 29, 2014      1 comments

The last 24 hours have been a perfect example of the deception of going by weight alone and why you shouldn't let what the scale says for one or a few days determine your mood or use it as an indicator of how well you're doing. Yesterday m... Read more

Believing I can do it!

Wednesday, January 20, 2010      1 comments

Friday the 8th's quick happy hour turned into a night of partying. As in something like five double vodka tonics and a shot. I awoke at 6 the next morning feeling guilty for the money, time, and calories I wasted the night before. I remembered ... Read more

I resisted

Last night on the way home, I stopped at Safeway so I could pick up a Sunday paper (for the ads). When I got there, I spied a display of Cadbury bars. Oh did I consider it. I thought about getting one of those and some milk. Really started plott... Read more

Oh Gymuary

Tuesday, January 05, 2010      1 comments

Now, I realize that after the last couple months, I do sort of fall into the "Gymuary" crowd. But, looking at the year overall, I feel like I do have some room to complain. The gym is always a disaster in January. I went last night to one of the... Read more

Try, Try Again

Wednesday, December 30, 2009      3 comments

Okay. Here we go again. So November and December didn't exactly work out as I had planned. While I had hoped to work out while my parents were in town, that didn't happen. Then, when we went to Oregon, Kevin ended up coming down on the first day... Read more

I just wanted to do a quick update before I forgot. So, everything finally came together to where I used my official scale this morning. First time in months. Tthe scale at my house is my official scale, but I've been at my boyfriend's so I've b... Read more

Best Run Ever

Sunday, September 13, 2009      1 comments

I had a personal best run yesterday, Even with a bit of a cold and cramps! Kevin went with me and rode his bike while I ran (his ankle still isn't good enough to run) and I ran for about 45 minutes continuously. Which, I know for a lot of people... Read more

I just don't understand

Wednesday, August 05, 2009      5 comments

I made the mistake of weighing myself last night after PE. Up two. Un-be-freaking-lieveable! I honestly don't get how it's possible. I've been drinking plenty of water- maybe not 8 but a good 6 a day. I've been eating breakfast. I've been t... Read more

Brownie Bites and Chips

Thursday, July 30, 2009      2 comments

That's what I turned down today. Instead of chips with my wrap, I had an apple and some pirate's booty. Instead of popping a couple frozen brownie bites (the kind from Costco - they're the best frozen!) I walked away. And, for a bonus, ... Read more

Things I've Turned Down

Wednesday, July 29, 2009      2 comments

It's the time of year again where my office has a month of catered lunches. Yes. A WHOLE month. Baked potatoes with all of the fixings. Hamburgers with potato salad. Lasagna with garlic rolls. Fish and chips. Spaghetti with meatballs. ... Read more

One Victory

Thursday, June 25, 2009      2 comments

This may not sound like a very big deal but: I turned down happy hour. I said no to beer and wings or whatever was on special and struck our fancy... Even when I've had kind of a bad day at work and could really go for a beer to wash i... Read more

Since March, my gym attendance has been spotty at best with something new always coming up. First it was finding a new roommate. Then it was making sure the place was spotless for her to move in. Dog sitting. A business trip. Another business tr... Read more

If you don't like it, it's already wasted.

Sometimes I forget this one. When I returned to the office after Christmas and New Year's, I found that well-meaning people had dropped off gifts of candy. Lots of it. One company that we do business with was even so unbelieveably kind as ... Read more

Hooray! I'm getting compliments! Last week Kevin's aunt asked if I had lost weight. This week his sister-in-law told him I was looking good. This week a woman I hadn't seen in a while said that was the first thing she noticed! Kevin a... Read more

Great News and Last Night's Class

Wednesday, June 25, 2008      0 comments

First, the great news. I think I've lost some weight. I got on the y's body fat scale. It was down on body fat (this one's hard to tell what it really is because it's influenced by how hydrated you are) but, last time I got on it it said 153.6 a... Read more
