So, in the past 4 weeks all of this has happened: 1- moved to a new city with my husband 2- got set up in our new place 3- we both started new jobs, and have been a little stressy... or maybe alot stressy 4- planted my new container gar... Read more

Best laid plans: I have tried for years upon years to lose weight- with the main goal to get healthy before getting pregnant. Actual accomplishment: losing 15-20lbs (depending on the day and water retention) out of the 45lbs that was the init... Read more

stress eating will be the death of me

Tuesday, May 20, 2014      4 comments

Oh my. So I'm trying to get my act together again for one last finale of weight loss before we try to get pregnant (in about 2 mos from now, and I don't want the gestational diabetes). But the thing is that tons of stressful stuff is happe... Read more

survived

Sunday, May 04, 2014      1 comments

I just survived my last really difficult month in residency. As I finished my last 24h work shift, I looked forward to start working out again, and getting back on track for weight loss. I maintained my weight for the most part this past m... Read more

trying!

Sunday, March 09, 2014      2 comments

So, first lemme get the whining out of the way... -Last week, I tried so hard, but I think the one night we went out for Mexican food sabotaged my weight loss amt for the week- only lost 1 lb, when I had intended to lose 2. But better than 0.... Read more

oopsie and new goals

Sunday, February 23, 2014      3 comments

Ugh... in my last blog post I was all gung ho about moving forward. But in reality, I did the opposite of moving forward. I moved backward... er... away form my goals, towards bad foods (both in quantity and quality), and I gained back some weig... Read more

when maintenance is a victory

Wednesday, February 12, 2014      7 comments

So for the past 4 weeks, I was working my tail off in the intensive care unit. The majority of my waking hours (>70 hours/week) were spent in a busy pediatric ICU- which left little time for me. Only 4 days off the entire month- most of which we... Read more

So I still have holiday remnants in my apartment- specifically in my kitchen. Cookies, candies, massive chocolate bar, peppermint chocolate, chips and queso... and i have continued to munch on them. But it needs to stop. I need to get back... Read more

Lazy bum-ness

Wednesday, December 18, 2013      9 comments

Oh the best laid plans.... Not that I have a real excuse. I could blame it on the transition from working nights to being awake during the day making me more exhausted than usual. But the truth is that I was just plain lazy. I had a half-d... Read more

Yesterday I noticed for the first time that one single pair of pants that I own was fitting a little looser. They are a pair of khaki cargo pants that I love to just slip on to go run a quick errand- yesterday was grocery shopping. They are one ... Read more

goals are good

Sunday, December 01, 2013      2 comments

I love the spark tracker. I tried to achieve the November SP goal. I got to 90%.... good, but I think I would have made it if I hadn't been sick in the middle of this month. Boo for that. But it makes me want to make the December monthly g... Read more

thanksgiving realizations

Friday, November 29, 2013      4 comments

I did better than I thought I would at Thanksgiving. Things weren't sitting very well in my stomach, so I didn't eat tons and I didn't drink much. I didn't even hit up the desert table- which is NOT LIKE ME. And even though we took home some tur... Read more

set up for this week

Friday, November 22, 2013      4 comments

I'm at the end of my 2 days off this week from 13h night shifts the other 5 nights of the week. I have been sick with a wicked cold- my face was a snot factory and I'm coughing up tons of junk. But things are starting to get better. During the p... Read more

Monday, November 11, 2013      6 comments

So, I'm conquering my excuses. 1- Excuse: Working odd hours that change every 4 wks makes working out difficult, especially when working nights. Conquer: Today I woke up earlier than normal (after going to bed sooner after getting home fro... Read more
