Baby steps toward moderation
A few days ago I posted about enjoying less that a serving of chocolate and then going about my day.
I'm still kind of stunned I was able to do that.
However, I'm doing more! Yesterday and today, I did it again!
I had a serving size of my ... Read more
Taming the sugar beast?
I don't usually do two blogs in one day.
But as you know, I've been craving chocolate.
Or if you didn't know... FYI, I've been craving chocolate.
It has to do with my special time. (calling it that just cracked me up)

Well, fighting off these cravings should count as a workout. (hahaha)
I hate feeling this way. The weather doesn't help (sunshine helps me want to do stuff, clouds, I just want to sit ALL day).
Today, I just wanted to skip my workout.... Read more
All week I've wanted to eat. I've wanted chocolate. I've wondered why, I've eaten healthy instead of eating junk, I've just been so hungry.
And today again, I just want to sit and eat chocolate.
Then as I was sitting, not eating cho... Read more
Life time of LIFE
Lately I've been seeing more and more people complain about not having the motivation to workout.
Like motivation is this magic potion that you can sprinkle more and more on to keep going.
It starts off great, you are set to lose weigh... Read more
Lifting for life
I've been a yoyoer for so many years.
When I was in college, I injured my knee during the volleyball season. That took a huge issue with my physical fitness. I gained the freshman 15 or so.
However, after I lost it, I didn't learn ... Read more
Just when I wasn't thinking about it...
I get hungry. Obviously. It is a side effect of being human.
The last few nights (days?) I've been super hungry when I get home from work, and my husband has been a little late, so I have a snack before dinner. Not a huge one, somethin... Read more
Yesterday morning, as I was getting dressed, I looked in my closet. I have tons of clothes... some of them in sizes too small with tags on that a bought YEARS ago hoping to get down to "that size" again.
I decided that I'd held onto them f... Read more
I'm still here, just trying to make things work.
I mean, they are, that is nice, weight comes off a tiny bit at a time, and I'm okay with that. Well, I mostly am. I mean, it is hard to not really see the scale move much. But I'm really w... Read more
Hide and seek
I had an interesting morning.
I knew we were having a coffee club at work for clients. This means LOTS of sweets in my area as we discuss things. Breakfast pastries and things are prevalent.
My boss did amazing, donuts and breads... Read more
Tough love and life
Read a blog today that was wonderful.
We do a good job here on this site of helping people. Cheering people. Helping people not get discouraged.
What we don't always do? Give the tough love.
I'm terrible at it. I really tr... Read more
Never miss a Monday
My goal since I started trying to lose most recently is to not miss workouts, and never skip one, especially if my eating wasn't on par.
This weekend, for the most part, I did okay. I let myself eat whatever I wanted but was in my calorie range... Read more
How many of us start our weight loss journey, or change with those statements?
If I lose this weight, then I'll be happy. (I think this is the big one)
If I lose this weight, then I'll be in pictures.
If I lose this weight, then I'll... Read more
ANother day... another step forward
I'm glad I'm finally learning. It was not easy. I wish it would have been.
You see, I'm pretty stressed. Lots going on, life, etc. But I'm still working this. Working out, working eating healthy.
Here is w... Read more
Wow. CRAZY freaking week!
I thought I'd blogged yesterday, but apparently, the crazy of the day didn't allow for it.
First, during my crazy weekend, on Saturday, my fitbit quit working. DURING MY WORKOUT! That irritated me, but I di... Read more
