Back to it.

Monday, January 12, 2015      0 comments

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

Thursday, October 30, 2014      0 comments

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

Friday, September 05, 2014      1 comments

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

Thursday, July 10, 2014      1 comments

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

Another month?!

Friday, June 06, 2014      1 comments

Just about. 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

Wednesday, May 07, 2014      2 comments

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)

Tuesday, April 01, 2014      1 comments

Exercise: 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

Monday, December 23, 2013      1 comments

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. T... Read more

Keep pushing!

Friday, December 06, 2013      1 comments

I made it through the long Thanksgiving weekend - which included the holiday meal and a birthday party - and had a loss at my ww weigh-in on Tuesday. Whoo! That, however, has been followed by three days of crummy eating. Aaargh! Par... Read more

I think the scale going the wrong way as of late and the upcoming holidays have been a motivator for me to push myself on meeting my weight loss goals. Several weeks back, our WW meeting leader threw out a large figure for the average wei... Read more

On the one hand...

I feel pretty good about the amount of physical activity I'm getting/will be getting. I finished out the Pilates and Barre classes last week. BF was able to get me a VIP guess pass for his gym. The pass is good for two weeks, so I will get a g... Read more

Head's not in the game

Thursday, October 17, 2013      1 comments use a sports phrase. I just finished the 2nd 17-week session of WW at Work and was up and down the entire time, and ended up with a net loss of 0.4 pounds. Time to really focus. I signed up for a 3rd session. I really liked the m... Read more
