It's been an eventful year (IMO), and not all good. My boyfriend got braces, started a certificate program to go down a new career path. His mom, in her 80's, fell and broke her hip and isn't the independent woman she used to be. My mom, livi... Read more
Never Give Up
I've probably used that title before. But it's a good one.
So I'm not quite back in the groove, but I'm not giving up.
I'm struggling to track my eating, but - at the moment - I'm doing it.
Starting today, I'll have Tue... Read more
Step it back up!
Everyone knows what it's like to hit a point that finally gets them to get back to what they know they should be doing. I'm at it.
Back to tracking. I need that awareness of the results of my choices. So I printed out a blank tracker p... Read more
Wow, has it really been that long since my last post?! Usually that’s not a good thing, and in my case, it’s certainly not.
My eating hasn’t improved since my last post and sadly, I’m now within 3 pounds of my highest weight. Time to st... Read more
Back to it.
Okay, my last post in October really sounded like I was talking myself out of Jazzercise. And now I'm ready. I want to go back to classes at the park district facility close to home. I want to get myself off the sofa and do weeknight workouts... Read more
End of October
Lost a post midway through it. Aaaargh!
It was nothing earth-shattering. It mostly focused on the activity side of things because my eating is still not back to where it should be.
Long ramble to follow.
Done with the bike... Read more
Mid-October, to be more precise.
I'm sounding like a broken record - still struggling with the eating. What's good recently is that the bf and I have been cooking a bit - the cool weather comfort foods. Soups, chili, etc. But those are ... Read more
Another long time - but something different to say
Another long time since I posted here. As I've posted previously, I've generally been struggling since February, and the result is gaining 10 pounds since mid-Feb.
Having been in a weight loss stall for about 8 months previous to that, ... Read more
Yet again, it's been another month (plus a few days) since I've been back here to post.
Still struggling with eating, and exercise has been off course too.
I stopped with the WW at work and have switched to a local WW meeting near ... Read more
I'm still tracking my eating. Calories are still too high, but I do see a slight move on the scale. (It's not the free for all it was a couple weeks ago.) Still eating out way too much - really need to get back to cooking a... Read more
It's Been Over a Month
Haven't been here in a while.
Still struggling mightily with food. I'm back to tracking this week. But...I'm skipping WW meetings. I do the At Work program in our office and I find I don't want to attend meetings with co-workers when I... Read more
The Current Challenge (and the current struggle)
I finished the easy pushup challenge doing mostly the knee version of pushups. Now I'm repeating it trying to start off the day's reps with however many standard version pushups I can eke out. Last night, day 9, it was 4.5. I'll ... Read more
Okay, I'm still not on track with exercise or eating, but I did get back to food tracking this week.
I also chose and began another 30-day fitness challenge. This one is called the "easy pushup challenge". You start with 3 pushups on da... Read more
I see I haven't posted since December. Yikes.
==Brief weight loss summary==
My weight blipped up a few pounds around mid-December, but I got it back down again by mid-January. Since then I've been bumping along at about the same weigh... Read more
Fretting vs. doing
As far as holiday shopping and preparation go, I'm now in my usual operating mode - "the mad scramble". Or so I say. Sometimes I feel like I'm spending more time fretting about about all there is to do versus actually DOING IT, LOL.
