So I'm back after another hiatus from trying to eat right/work out/lose weight. . .
I'm come to the conclusion that I am just not one of those people who can diet. I can't be laying around feeling like I'm going to vomit all the time becau... Read more
I'm losing it!
Pounds, that is! Five of 'em, to be exact! Not bad for only a few weeks of work, and not adding exercise yet. It's all protein. The thing that was lacking in my diet, and the thing which helps me not be hungry for crap food substitutes.

Protein: My new best friend!
So I haven't posted in a while, but I haven't given up on trying to alter my diet! Unfortunately, Paleo didn't work out for me. At least, not yet. Because it's almost impossible to go from having vegetables/meat be only like 5% of what you ea... Read more
So I'm about ready to give up on working out, because I can not find a suitable workout to do. I know what is important is getting my heart rate up, but I can't find a workout that does it. It's like, the second my heart rate starts coming up,... Read more
I fail to understand how, in less than a week, I can un-do several weeks of hard work dieting/exercising. :( It makes me hopeless that I'll ever be able to lose the weight, because there are always going to be times when there's a birthday par... Read more
A little bit discouraged today, but trying to stay positive.
So this weight loss thing is a ridiculously slow process when you don't binge diet. Throughout my twenties, when I gained a few pounds, I would just binge diet with some Slim Fast, and be back to normal in no time. Now I'm in my thirties, that... Read more
Still dancing away. . .
So I had an awesome birthday, and my husband got me awesome presents that go right along with my current effort to lose weight! I got Zumba Rush and Just Dance 3 for Xbox, and have been having a ball with them! I'm using these, as well as my J... Read more
Dancing it off!
Zumba: Where have you been all my life?!?!? Seriously, this is my new favorite thing. I've been struggling to do the 30 Day Shred video, dragging myself to do it each day, and while I've been doing it most days, I just don't enjoy it, and I'm... Read more
Yesterday I got laid off from my job. While I now have concerns like finances and just hoping with all my might I can find another job, and while I'm super sad to lose working from home which suited me PERFECTLY, on the other hand, I'm trying t... Read more
I MIGHT have had a bit of a dietary break-through today. . . I have a sore throat just now, probably due to my chronic sinus problems, and I REALLY want it to be gone before the weekend, so I've been drinking tea all day. Like, eight cups of t... Read more
So, I fell off the wagon. HARD! I am back up to almost my highest weight ever. :( My diet is TERRIBLE and I can't remember the last time I exercised. I had this long post typed up but what it really comes down to is:

Waiting for results, and searching for lentils. . .
So I had some blood drawn the other day and am waiting to hear back on results to see if my thyroid is the root of my problems.
Meanwhile, I am continuing to ever so slowly convert my diet to a healthy one, and today, I decided I would go a... Read more
Off the wagon, and on again. . .
If I skip a day of exercising, I find it next to impossible to do it the next day. I know they say you're supposed to skip days, but really, I think that isn't going to work for me! I skip one. . . And that turns in to four. :(
Also, th... Read more
Progress, and more on Jillian Michaels. . .
I am making progress! Not on the scale or in the mirror (yet!) but I am definitely making progress because I can now do the weights throughout the entire video. In fact, the only thing in the video I'm not doing is the push-ups. For whatever ... Read more
As planned, I did my first workout in a long time today! Previously, I'd been doing the Jillian Michael's 6 week/6 pack. I decided I'd try the 30 Day Shred this time instead. I liked this one as much as like 6 week/6 pack! Hooray! However, ... Read more
