I did it!

Tuesday, January 25, 2011      8 comments

Last week I dealt with an unrelenting need to eat everything in sight and then go in search of more food. It was over as quickly as it began, which I believe confirms it was hormonal. But raging hormone binge aside, I have not been as diligent a... Read more

Sugar is a demon. Or is it fat? Or maybe it's just me.

Thursday, January 20, 2011      6 comments

It's confession time, my friends. I need some help. I've been struggling a lot for the past year. I thought I had kicked the whiny "I don't wanna" voice from my head, but it came back and lately it's getting louder and louder. I just can't seem... Read more

I Tried It: Hummus and Cheese Sandwich

Monday, January 17, 2011      8 comments

Yesterday I made a decision to experiment with healty foods. You see, I have a fully stocked kitchen and a fully stocked bar. I have always wanted a fully stocked bar, and I love to try new drinks. But alas, drinking and weight loss do not typ... Read more

Turkey Trot & Thanks

Thursday, November 25, 2010      3 comments

I was going to run a Turkey Trot today, but it didn't work out. So I went for my own personal run. No headphones, no company, just me and the fresh air (and the cold rain, but I really didn't notice that part). After the first few minutes o... Read more

Physical Therapy vs. 30-Day Shred

Tuesday, November 16, 2010      7 comments

As many of you know, I had hip surgery in May and was just recently released from my very intense physical therapy sessions. I wondered how I might push myself the way my therapist did. This morning, I decided to retry Jillian's 30-Day Shre... Read more

Good morning, sunshine

Wednesday, November 03, 2010      2 comments

I'm awake and it's dark out. It's starting to be very cold in the morning, so I know it's time to rework my daily plan to get the most out of the day. Some ideas: 1. Go for a walk/jog over lunch - gets me outside during the warmest part of ... Read more

I was right to be afraid...

As many of you know, I have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome). This makes weight loss and daily living a little tricky, but over the years, I've come to terms with it and started to see success. My ultimate goal is to go off all the medications... Read more

The Best Birthday Ever!

Monday, October 25, 2010      3 comments

Another year has come and gone, and they just seem to keep getting better and better. This year was no exception. My birthday is only 2 days away from dh's birthday, so we tend to celebrate together. That means lots of activities and parti... Read more

So Hungry

Tuesday, October 19, 2010      4 comments

For the past couple weeks I've been pretty much eating what I want, because I had run out of fresh food and my schedule made getting to the grocery store difficult. (I worked out a plan for that and am back on track.) So yesterday and today... Read more

Planning and a little tough love go a long way

Monday, October 18, 2010      5 comments

Over the weekend, I had a little breakdown because I have to work my full-time job, get in 60-90 minutes of exercise a day for my hip, complete 10 hours of math homework, study for and complete my math final before class, attend class three nigh... Read more

Finding Motivation

Tuesday, September 28, 2010      9 comments

My motivation has been flagging lately. A lot of it has to do with school and work taking so much time, and adding stress, which is never helpful when trying to get healthy. I think I might be a little bored, too - it's the same old routine, day... Read more

10 years together! Hard to believe, it's gone by so fast.

Saturday, September 18, 2010      1 comments

Last night was hubby and my 10-year anniversary celebration. He picked me up at work, and we walked a few blocks to the Pfister, where we hopped into a horse-drawn carriage for a ride through downtown and along the lakefront - gorgeous! And smel... Read more

Arrgghhh!! Time going by too fast.

Thursday, September 09, 2010      8 comments

Wow, so it's been a week since I've had a minute to write down my thoughts. Wild. School has started, and my next BLC challenge is under way. We threw a party for Labor Day, and a portion of our home's power failed the day before the party.... Read more

Envisioning the Future - Scared of the Past

Friday, September 03, 2010      11 comments

Today, one of my teammates (30 pounds in 30 weeks challenge) posted a thread asking us to envision what things might be like 30 pounds from now. I thought that was a great question, so I really focused on it. What I came up with was not pleasan... Read more
