Doing GOOD!
Thursday, July 12, 2007      0 comments

I realized it's been a while since I wrote a blog and I need to update things a bit. I'm now down 17.5 pounds and 13.5 inches lost. I'm staying under 1500 calories per day - with summer being here and watermelon and cantaloupe being abundant, ... Read more
Memorial Day Weekend & Graduation Parties
Monday, May 28, 2007      0 comments

This was a tough weekend - having a 3 day weekend but also having 9 graduation parties to attend. I stayed under 1550 calories by eating less for breakfast and lunch so I would have calories for the parties but I avoided most of the food and ju... Read more
Pretty good week

This last week was pretty good - I lost 1.5 pounds on weigh in Wednesday, had 6am Birthday breakfast at McDonald's Saturday for my dad's 77th - but only had a fruit & yogurt parfait. Then I worked out for 2.5 hours - Turbo Kick class, 47 minute... Read more

Weigh in was this morning and I'm bummed. My weekly goals have been 1, 1, 2, 3. I've been at 1.5, 1.5, 2.5 but only 1.5 today. I'm still losing so I should be thrilled and I've lost 7.5 inches (3 just on my waist), so that's all good, but I'm... Read more

Things are going pretty good. I've kind of gotten myself into a set exercise routine, without really meaning to. Since last week I've been walking two miles per day and biking 10 miles. I also do a spinning class on Tuesday night, and circuit... Read more
Rest of the day better - foodwise

I made it to noon and walked two miles and found a co-worker friend along the way. I'm hoping she'll be my walking partner on a regular basis! Work was still a little rough but that was more this morning then this afternoon. A semi flipped ov... Read more
Can't get full this morning

Wow, having a hard time getting filled up this morning. I had a banana at 6:45, an english muffin w/peanut butter at 9, chugged 20 oz of water and still need something more. Ate a Hershey's Snackster w/cereal & chocolate - 100 cal. Hoping tha... Read more

Today was crazy at work - too many "people issues" to deal with, but I still did good on my eating. I ate my lunch and then went out and walked two miles on the bike path. My daughter called from college to ask if I'd heard from my son in Hi... Read more
Weekend
Sunday, May 06, 2007      0 comments

Well the weekend is almost over and I think I did pretty well. Last night was the first test of going out and staying within line. I had around 600 calories I could use so that wasn't too bad. We were at a bar for a surprise party and luckily... Read more
Great start to the weekend

This is my first blog - figured I might as well start it on a positive note. The fitness center I go to has a Turbokick class - I haven't been there for 5-6 months because of dealing with Achilles tendonitis but decided if I woke up without the... Read more
