Week Five: Sticking with it.
Alas, only half a pound gone this week. I'm not worrying just yet; we'll see what next week's weigh-in says first. I might have hit a plateau, or my body might have decided to rebel at the lack of candy and chocolate and pop, or the coffees I dr... Read more
Week Four: Am I on a roll?
I lost another two pounds, everyone! Another four pounds - two weeks, if I continue like this - and I can go to Old Navy and get myself another long skirt for every day wear! I'm definitely looking forward to that!
Here are my grades from J... Read more

Week Two: In which consistency flies out the window.
Don't worry, I am far from discouraged!
Consistency is one of those things I have a lot of trouble with, probably because of my ADHD. So it's something I am continually working on in all areas of my life. This last week was a setback, but i... Read more
Week One: Attempting to maintain consistency.
So last week was my Week One, and this is my summary post. I'm having these weeks start on Monday, and I'll be posting on Mondays to talk about the previous week's progress.
First of all, I went from 252lbs to 249lbs, so focusing on eating ... Read more
Something important I learned last week.
Last Friday, July 9, I learned something very important about myself and about... well... US!
As I say on my SparkPage, my annual goal is to better my time on the hike to the Lake Agnes Tea House. This is a 3.4km hike up a mountain at Lake ... Read more
Once you've set your goals, you need to keep track of them.
I'm waiting for iTunes to finish updating so I can have some tunes while I get dressed and start editing and writing this morning, so I thought I would update my SP blog while I'm waiting. :)
One of the ways you can track your goals is to u... Read more
Goals need to be concrete, achievable, challenging, and time-limited. I know a lot about setting goals from my years working with autistic children.
I realize that I said my vision incorrectly yesterday. Instead of "become," it should say "... Read more
Remember to breathe.
So I've had a few meltdowns this weekend, over wedding stuff. Too much to do, not enough time to do it in, etc. etc. Not fun. Then this morning I was going to wear a particular outfit and I put on the top and it looked awful because I've gained ... Read more
Taking it easy.
So far, so good. I am feeling relaxed, which is a nice change. Lack of stress is good for the Janna. ;)
Yesterday I made some poor food choices and ate a LOT of junk food. But I paid for it - felt rather gross most of the evening. So I will... Read more
I always do the grand proclamation thing.
You know, the one about how I'm going to change this, that, and the other, and make tons of good changes, and be a whole new and different person?
Yeah, not so much anymore.
I was in Calgary doing wedding prep stuff a couple of weeks a... Read more
A new adventure (or a revisit of an old adventure)!
I hate to admit it, but I've been really lax on... well, everything lately. I haven't been exercising like I ought, I haven't been eating like I ought, I haven't been focusing on the things I want to focus on. And I can't even blame it on weddin... Read more
I am so tired today!
I don't want to go to Curves, but I will. I'm just so tired. I babysat last night and didn't get to bed until nearly 2.00 a.m. I wasn't tired then, but I sure am today! I think my sleep cycle has cycled through, and since I'm not on ADHD medicat... Read more
Sleepy but happy. :)
Well, yesterday was my first day on the Curves eating plan. I'm in Phase 1, which has me eating 1200 calories a day for seven days. Then I'll be moving into Phase 2.
I didn't get hungry AT ALL yesterday. In fact, I am thinking about moving ... Read more
Hooray for Curves!
Something I've been wanting to do for ages is join Curves. I finally did that a couple of weeks ago, and on Friday (my fifth workout) I got started on the CurveSmart Program. I am so excited about what this program can do for me if I continue go... Read more
