Where I've been
Monday, June 06, 2016      0 comments

Hello all, I've been gone for a while. At first it was the move from the US to England and getting settled. Then I started having some medical problems. I got sidetracked while I was going from doctor to doctor, waiting for appointments ... Read more
Day 63 - Still going the wrong way
Saturday, April 25, 2015      0 comments

Weigh in this morning wasn't fun... I'm still going the wrong way. Even though I know why it is happening, it doesn't make it easier to deal with. I'm now only 4 pounds away from where I was when I started 3 months ago. I was so happy with th... Read more
Day 61 - So Frustrated
Thursday, April 23, 2015      2 comments

I am very frustrated today. I've mentioned this before (I think) but I've been fighting a rash for the past 4 months. Well, after the last course of oral steroids didn't work, both the doctor and I wondered if I was having a drug reaction to m... Read more
Day 53 - Sliding downhill
Wednesday, April 15, 2015      1 comments

I can feel it starting to happen. I'm starting to self-destruct. And I don't know why. I had a great weekend. It was beautiful, I ran a ten mile race with friends and improved my running pace by almost a minute! I had some great NSV's, incl... Read more
Day 42 - Controlled Chaos
Sunday, April 05, 2015      3 comments

I knew today was going to be bad, food-wise. But since I knew that, I also tried to plan ahead to make it not as bad. For me that planning ahead was reminding myself that I wanted this freedom today and to not stress about the number of calori... Read more
Day 39 - Race bib and medal hanger
Thursday, April 02, 2015      3 comments

Just a quick note tonight because my husband put up my race bib and medal hanger that I bought myself after my last race. I like how it holds both the bibs and medals! A new one will be hanging on there in just over a week! ... Read more
Day 38 - NSV photos
Wednesday, April 01, 2015      3 comments

I always have problems feeling like I don't look any different when I lose weight. Last night I decided to take some front and side photos and compare them to ones I took at the beginning of January. I am now 10lbs lighter than the ones I took... Read more
Day 34 - Ten Pound mini-goal met
Saturday, March 28, 2015      2 comments

Woo hoo! I'm officially down 10 lbs as of my "official" weigh in this morning. I'm excited that last week's gain did seem to mostly be bloat. I also passed my initial military weigh in yesterday, so that was another success. It wasn't the of... Read more
Day 27 - Ten Miler conquered!
Saturday, March 21, 2015      0 comments

This week had been filled with more downs than ups, which is partly why I hadn't been writing. My rash has been coming back with a vengeance (dr appointment on Tuesday) and my weight had been steadily going up. I knew I was eating a bit more (... Read more
Day 19 - Not much to write
Friday, March 13, 2015      1 comments

Even though I haven't been writing in my blog, I've been exercising every day and tracking my food... so I'm proud of myself for that. I'll have to go look, but I'm pretty sure I'm close to my highest streak of consistently logging in and track... Read more
Day 16 - ran outside
Tuesday, March 10, 2015      1 comments

I ran outside this morning for the first time in months. It was cooler than I hoped it would be, but I really shouldn't complain since it was still a ton warmer than it's been! There were only a few places I had to side step the few remaining ... Read more
Day 15 - Actually day 2,169
Monday, March 09, 2015      1 comments

I was looking around on my SparkPage and saw the place where it said I have been a member since April 1, 2009. I was curious because I've seen others on here track their days as members - and this means I have been a member for 2,169 days! And... Read more
Day 12 - First night back working out
Friday, March 06, 2015      1 comments

I worked out for the first time in about a week today, after being sick. I did 45 minutes on our elliptical. I get really bored on the elliptical, but it's what we have here at home. I don't understand how it works though. I was on it for 45... Read more
Day 10 - Been down with the flu
Wednesday, March 04, 2015      1 comments

I've been sick all week with the flu. I was diagnosed Friday night, and then also went to the ER Saturday thanks to having the rash up onto my neck, and worse on other parts of my body. They finally gave me some oral steroids which is the firs... Read more
Day 3 - not as good today
Wednesday, February 25, 2015      1 comments

I caved today. I was running late and wasn't able to make my snacks for the day. So during the break in my morning class I went and bought that darn bag of popcorn. Then I had lunch with a friend I haven't seen in a while and got a california... Read more
