Went for a Walk!
So I might be a fan of ye olde treadmill. What's not to love about being in an air conditioned room with a fan blowing air, watching tv and getting your minutes in? Or, skip the tv and read a book. Well, it's kind of gotten a little boring.

My Adventure with Once a Month Cooking
One of the biggest ways I've made poor choices that work against my goals is to fall on "fast & easy" food instead of making it myself. With the potential of grad school coming up this summer and added expenses, we've been looking at ways to cut... Read more
It's no secret that I'm a stressaholic. I stress about being behind on work. I stress about not being AHEAD on work. I stress about not having ENOUGH work. So yeah, that's a little crazy. But, on the plus side, I am officially ON TRACK with my w... Read more
They say that losing weight won't change you. I swear I've seen it on several SP quizzes, especially the one that's "Are you ready to lose weight?" I can completely see where they're coming from--your weight doesn't make your personality. There ... Read more
Starting Again--Not Over
I haven't been active on SP for probably close to 6 months now. I gave in to excuses and stress and changed my priorities. I found myself thinking about "starting over" with the new year. I think it's a great time to dive back in because you're ... Read more
Attack of the Blahs!
This has been a really hard week for me. I feel like I've failed myself quite a bit & I'm not exactly sure how to get myself in the right frame of mind.
The last couple weeks, I've been ridiculously hungry. All the time. I'll eat a normal p... Read more
Back on the Wagon
I haven't updated this in a long while and things have been kind of crazy since then! I've learned several things about myself in that time... and while I have not been as successful on the scale, I'm VERY happy with several changes & successes ... Read more
Talking Nutrition with a Teen...
Bf's daughter has been here for less than 48 hours so far. Early in the visit, she brought up that she needs to lose weight, because her doctor told her she was obese. (She's 5'2 and 145 lbs.) The doctor apparently told her she needs to weigh 12... Read more
This Weekend's a Test!!
I'm sure a lot of us fall into the trap of, "I'm too busy to _____" insert everything you SHOULD be doing to stay healthy in the blank... and there ya go. I know that's how I ended up where I am. "I'm too busy to cook a real meal, I'll get some ... Read more
Silly Blog Entries Eaten by the Interwebs!
I was ALMOST DONE writing an entry... when I mashed a button accidentally & the internet ate my work :(
So, I'll summarize quickly because I'm way too lazy to write all of that again!
1) Below 240 officially!!

Sleep is for the weak?
Like a ton of other high school & college aged kids, I've spent a good portion of my life with a screwy sleep schedule. I remember in high school, one of my teachers turned to our class and said, "If you're getting more than 4 hours of sleep a n... Read more
Time to Get Serious!
It's been a pretty difficult month for me in that I've been REALLY stressed out. It impacts me in a lot of ways from physical pain to sleepiness to just-not-wanting-to-do-anythin
g-itis. BUT, ironically, it also tends to make me want to do MO... Read more
I'm stuck on a mesa
Did you know a Mesa is a fancy spanish word for plateau they use in California? I figure my plateau should be regionally-appropriate.
Anyway, I'm pretty stuck. I feel like I'm doing everything right--getting to the gym even more, walking ex... Read more
What exactly is forgiveable?
This week for BLC18, we're supposed to write a blog about forgiving ourselves for things we've done or haven't done. I'm not sure my thoughts have been exactly in the spirit of the challenge, but it's been a funky couple of weeks emotionally, so... Read more
Something Magical Happened...
So one of my goals right now is to be in size 16s by June. That might not be 100% realistic, but it's a goal, right? I honestly have no idea how much weight loss will equate to a jeans size--I'm pretty sure size 16 to size 14 was over 40 pounds ... Read more
