End of BLC... Wish I Were Going Out Strong
As the weeks have been going by, I've been settling into a rut of, "Yeah, that's about 1200 calories" rather than using the tracker. I've been pretty "meh" about water. I haven't been sleeping well for the past couple of weeks. Altogether, I've ... Read more
Crazy Adventures of the Scale Demon
This week was crazy busy for me personally. I had a lot of work to do, lots of errands, and some surprise adventures to handle. What it boiled down to were several meals where easy won out over healthy. Thursday we had pizza for dinner--I made i... Read more
Omg I'm getting old!!
There I was, in my bathroom today, brushing my hair out before I took a shower. I noticed this sparkly strand in my hair, zoomed in a little closer, and *gasp*... it was GREY!! Okay, so it wasn't really THAT startling--I've been pulling the odd ... Read more
Today I went Shopping!
I decided to take the plunge and go try on some pants at Old Navy today. I suspected I would be able to fit into size 18s now and have been holding off on exploring the option for a week or two. I was a little worried that I'd be disappointed. A... Read more
Healthy Decisions =/= Uptight Attitude
I was poking around SparkPeople this afternoon and saw the highlighted DailySpark post about recipes for Girl Scout cookies. Being a former scout myself, the idea of homemade cookies is amazing! Not only is it a worthy challenge, but I love cook... Read more
Little bits add up :D
It took me quite a while to get realistic about how to lose weight. I remember at several times thinking that 5 pounds a week of weight loss was realistic. I was magically going to cut my calories arbitrarily to 1600 (which I thought was crazy l... Read more
Do you ever feel just... meh? When I'm not feeling particularly motivated or AWESOME, I tend to kind of close myself off. I don't answer phone calls, I don't talk to people very much. I just don't really want anybody to bother me.
This is a... Read more
This Week I Learned...
This was a really good week for me in BLC#17. The challenges were almost all exactly what I need RIGHT NOW, so it's great. Just last week I was talking about needing to get in more veggies to feel more full. Focusing on that for the challenge ma... Read more
Compulsory Self-Indulgent Post #2
To continue the "why I'm awesome" post...
6) I make people want to tell me things. I've felt like Dr. Phil several times--if people have a problem, I'm usually there to listen. I don't think I've ever left a plane after a flight and not kno... Read more
Compulsory Self-Indulgent Post #1
For BLC#17 this week, we're supposed to post two blog posts about 10 things we like about ourselves. I'm not really sure why it's in two separate posts, but I can listen & follow directions!!
In no particular order, here are the first 5 th... Read more
Omg my plate looks like a normal person's
So with this being the 5-servings-of-fruits/veggies week for BLC... and needing to do it ANYWAY because I am having trouble staying in calories with my normal food right now... THIS is what I came up with for dinner:
On Thursday, after I got done throwing myself a pity party for feeling bad, I decided to suck it up and get things done. I had some tea (normally would have chosen sweet tea, made a compromise by putting a teaspoon of honey in about 30 oz of tea... Read more
Missin' the Pep in my Step
I woke up today feeling okay I guess. Was really tired and kinda blah, but that's normal--I am NOT a morning person. The day kept going and I felt a sense of being "down" but no real reason for it. A couple hours ago this resulted in me on the c... Read more
Little Words = Big Effects
For BLC#17, we're supposed to share a bit of our weight loss journey. I pretty much did that a week or so ago, so I've decided to go all introspective on WHY I started the bad habits I did.
This goes way way back to elementary school, hones... Read more
Say Hello to My Little Friend
One of this week's challenges for BLC#17 is to find a fruit and vegetable you've never had before and give it a try. I went roaming the grocery store yesterday with two priorities. First, it couldn't be expensive. If I don't like it, I don't wan... Read more
