2/25: anxiety
Tuesday, February 25, 2014      3 comments

Today I am feeling really bloated and heavy, probably because I am stressed and tired. I'm also a bit anxious because my new scale is arriving today, and I'm wondering if I am going to be surprised by my weight on it because I don't know how lon... Read more

2/23: broken scale (no, really)
Sunday, February 23, 2014      4 comments

Normally I check my weight on the weekend, but it looks like my scale is totally on the fritz (lots of readings as different from each other as 10 pounds, all on the same day, happening as rapidly as the time it takes to step off and back on aga... Read more
2/22: gratefulness
Saturday, February 22, 2014      2 comments

I decided part of my daily blogging needs to include me identifying something I like or am grateful for regarding my body. I have realized my biggest difficulty in maintenance and adjusting to my new size is the negative self-talk I continue to ... Read more
2/21: returning to SP
Friday, February 21, 2014      4 comments

I haven't logged in for about 5 months, mostly due to personal stressors. While I haven't been perfect at maintaining my exercise and healthy eating routine, I've generally kept it up without tracking down to the calorie (I just estimate in my ... Read more
Increasing protein (smoothie recipe included)
Monday, September 02, 2013      3 comments

Since I do not eat any animal products, getting even 60 grams of protein is a pretty big accomplishment (especially since I was not eating anywhere close to that much prior to getting on SP). However, now that I have been in maintenance for a b... Read more
One month of using the linked nutrition/fitness tracker
Sunday, August 11, 2013      2 comments

I have to say I am really satisfied with the new system. Because it adjusts based on how much activity I did for the day rather than how much activity I would like to do for the week (which sometimes does and sometimes does not happen, dependin... Read more
Another inch gone
Sunday, July 28, 2013      4 comments

I was very happy with my weigh-in and measurements today. I maintained my weight for another week, which I think must be with the help of the new tracking system adjusting my calories based on my activity. Since I have been struggling to find ... Read more
Gym nights and calorie tracking - week 2
Thursday, July 25, 2013      2 comments

I was successful again with projecting my calories burned on my gym nights and leaving myself some available calories so I could be flexible with my post-gym snack depending on how much I burned. The first night I actually burned exactly how mu... Read more
Maintained my weight this week
Monday, July 22, 2013      3 comments

I maintained my weight over the last week, which I was surprised about given my decrease in calories, but it was not a wholly unpleasant surprise since I've had trouble with keeping my weight consistent. Maybe having more evenness with calories... Read more
Overview after one week with new tracking
Saturday, July 20, 2013      1 comments

Overall I took in a lot fewer calories for the week than I have in some time, although the calories I burned were on par with an average week, and gave me a larger calorie differential than I've had in some time. It'll be interesting to see how... Read more
Eating fewer calories today
Thursday, July 18, 2013      2 comments

Over the next few days, I have a smaller calorie range due to burning fewer calories in the workouts I have planned compared to earlier this week. It's hard not to think of the low end of the recommended calorie range as restrictive because I h... Read more
Evening workout and new calorie tracking
Wednesday, July 17, 2013      2 comments

Tonight was my first night of working out at the gym with the new calorie/fitness system here on SP. I made an estimate based on an average night on the gym so that I wasn't left guessing on appropriate calories throughout the day, and instead ... Read more
More thoughts on the new nutrition tracking
Tuesday, July 16, 2013      3 comments

The potential positives I see right now with the new tracking is that it does adjust for my level of activity for the day (my calorie range for Thursday is 150 calories less than my range for Wednesday, for example). I have been looking for a n... Read more
