Getting started again
Monday, July 12, 2010      4 comments

My baby will be 5 months old on Friday and I have lost almost 20 of the 35 pounds I gained while pregnant. Most of those I lost during the first couple weeks. I really need to get motivated again and walk more (or swim). I also need to see if... Read more

I have been tired this week. It's probably because I was sick last week. I did sleep more than usual, but I guess that wasn't enough. I haven't been getting up in the morning to workout like I used to. I figured the only reason I was getting... Read more
My dress is in!

So I got the postcard saying that my dress is in. The wedding is in a little over 10 weeks so I need to go in two to three weeks for my first fitting. I also have to call soon if I want a Saturday so I don't have to use PTO. I still need to g... Read more

The last two days here were sunny and about 50 degrees. Now today, we have already had hail, freezing rain, thunder, and we are expecting a rain/sleet/snow mix for the rest of the day. The temperature is about 30 degrees. Why can't it stay wa... Read more
Not so good day

So today is one of those days when I would have liked to stay in bed. I am really tired today because I didn't sleep well until after 11:30 last night. I didn't get up at 5 to exercise because of it. I was excited to go for a walk today becau... Read more

I'm still working out at 5 am! I am surprised that I have been able to get up so early. Before I started working full time during the summer, I was a night owl. I loved staying up late and not having to get up early. The only bad thing about... Read more

I can't wait til this week is over. I'm really tired today because I haven't slept very well this week. I still get up at 5 to either do yoga or go to the gym for the elliptical. I went for a walk again today over lunch, but it's really cold ... Read more

My new goal is no pop. I usually drink a small (12 oz) bottle of diet (or regular) mountain dew every morning. I have quit drinking caffeine before, but it didn't last long. I was drinking more pop then and got headaches right away. Today is... Read more
Nice Day Today

Here in South Dakota it was 30 degrees and sunny at noon so I went for a walk. There's a sidewalk around a pond near my building and I walked around that. It was still half covered with snow, but it was a fun walk. I'm planning on going again... Read more

So the first week of my challenge has gone well. I wasn't sure that I would make it every day, but I did. I tracked all the food I plan to eat today and my calories are a little low and I'm two grams away from my protein range, but everything ... Read more
My grocery shopping
Wednesday, January 28, 2009      1 comments

I always check for what's on sale at the local grocery store. My town basically has two stores (well two stores that I go to): Walmart and Hyvee. Walmart has cheaper pop, gatorade and water 99% of the time so I buy those things at Walmart. I ... Read more

So my calorie intake has been all over the place this week, usually 200-300 more or less than what I'm supposed to have. I did lose another pound, though. Again, I'm not sure why - maybe because I'm drinking more water and eating more yogurt? ... Read more
Not always eating enough
Thursday, January 22, 2009      3 comments

Some days I am just under the number of calories I should eat in a day, but I am not hungry. Yesterday, I only had about 800 calories but I was not hungry at all. This doesn't happen every day, maybe once or twice a week and usually it's more... Read more

So I stepped on the scale this morning and I weighed 3 pounds less than when I weighed last week. I have no idea how this happened. I ate way too much this weekend and didn't worry about what I was eating. I also haven't exercised this ... Read more

Today is my first day working full time at my job. I just graduated from college with a degree in computer science and music. Last summer I had an internship with 1st Financial Bank USA as a software engineer and they really liked me. I was a... Read more
