Wk 74 Still not on the right path
This was a very long week. It started out alright, getting some gym time in on Monday and Tuesday and eating not too badly (but not too clean either). But on Wednesday things got a little hectic. My mom went into the hospital that morning for a ... Read more
Wk 73 Trying to right the ship
I have some admissions to make. I was not good this past week. I ate pretty terribly and I only got to the gym a couple of times. I have also been derelict in keeping up with you all, reading your blogs, checking my friend fe... Read more
Wk 72 One Week Post Vacation (w/pics)
I missed writing last week's blog because I was in Victoria, BC, Canada at the time, on my last full day of vacation. I've been home since the night of the 19th but only made it to the gym one day this week due to circumstances out of my control... Read more
Home From Vacation
I survived my vacation. The cruise itself was good, had a lot of fun, but was pretty wiped out by the end of it. Always seems like vacations take a lot out of you! But the whole week was not pleasant.
Found out Tuesday morning that my 91 ... Read more
Wk 70 Weigh In - Leaving on a Jet Plane
This week sucked, I was under a lot of stress and it surely affected me. A few weeks ago I had to go on welfare (with a 15 year old to feed and keep insured I was out of options). I know, I know, go get a job. Been trying that on and off for alm... Read more
Wk 69 weigh In - moving forward
This was a rough week for me. You see, last week brought a 3.8 lb loss, but I did a bit of "cheating" to achieve that number. I had weighed myself that morning and saw a 2.2 lb loss, that was good, but I wanted to be more ahead schedule than tha... Read more
Wk 68 Weigh In - WooHoo
This was a better week for me, I got into the gym more and sweated my butt off more. I put in 270 fitness minutes this wee, which is more than usual for me. But knowing that I needed to lose 5.8 lbs in 3 weeks to hit my 100 lb goal before leavin... Read more
Wk 67 Weigh In - I'll take it
What a long week it's been. My dad, brother, son and I did build a fence at my grandmother's house this week. Of course that entailed loading my truck with all of the necessary tools needed for the job Tuesday morning, then unloading those same ... Read more
50 Questions (borrowed from NARNIAROSE2003)
SEXBOBOMB borrowed this little "getting to know you" quiz from LBFROMBUFAD and LULUBELLE65 borrowed it from her and I am borrowing it from her. Because what could be more interesting than a blog all about me? I'll repeat their words here as well... Read more
Wk 66 Weigh In - Slaying it
What a week, huh? 100+ degrees almost everyday, hardly any breeze to make it a little more tolerable. A hell of a week to stay inside!
I didn't get to the gym but 3 times this week I think. I know, I know. Last week I said I was going to r... Read more
Wk 65 Weigh In - Sick
Another week has come and gone and I sit here typing words, tapping keys hoping to enthrall, encourage and inspire all who come this way.
But the truth is, I'm just not feeling it right now. I was sick early in the week (Sun-Tues) and that... Read more
Wk 64 Weigh In - Still Rollin'
Happy "last day of June" everybody. This month, although it had 5 weekends, seemed to go by pretty fast for me. Perhaps I'm just looking forward to my vacation in August. Tomorrow it will be July and on Wednesday we will be celebrating our count... Read more
Wk 63 Weigh In - Tired but Good
Another week is in the books and boy am I tired! I logged 305 fitness minutes this week, which for me is a lot considering I am usually at 165 minutes. I only log time I actually spend exercising, I don't log all of the little things (yard work,... Read more
Wk 62 Weigh In - woohoo?
Another week has come and gone, 7 days that we can not get back to do over again. That's 168 hours or 10080 minutes if you're playing along at home. If I subtract 8 hours per day for sleep I still have 112 hours or 6720 minutes per week of awake... Read more
Wk 61 Weigh In - WooHoo
This last week was pretty good. Honestly, I could have eaten cleaner and pushed myself harder in the gym, but I avoided lots of bad snacks and left a decent amount of sweat behind during my workouts. So overall I feel pretty good about how the w... Read more
