Closet Adventure

Tuesday, August 12, 2014      2 comments

Today I was getting dressed and decided to try on a blouse I haven't worn in a while - And it fit! This led to 30 minutes in my closet trying on anything and everything that hadn't fit before. Some things fit well, some fit snug, and some couldn... Read more

Self Report Card

Saturday, August 09, 2014      1 comments

Six Weeks Self Report Card Eating Plan (through 8/5) - Grade: C You really haven't made much progress on the pounds - yoyoing between 2-3 lbs lost in the past six weeks. You eat well for two meals and then start snacking without writing it... Read more

Today I finally felt like I'm changing (just a little, but I'm changing). I've been hitting the cardio steady almost daily and using weights 2 times a week but the nutrition part has been killing me. After I had a melt down last week from ... Read more

Walk On!

Tuesday, July 29, 2014      1 comments

It feels so good to feel the sweat trickle down my back when it's exercise-induced. Doing run/walk intervals on the treadmill while watching "stuff" on my ipad even washed away the guilt of the chips/dip episode. Walk on!... Read more

I took my measurements today - first time since 2010. My 2010 measurements were stored on my sparkpeople page. I had the same waistline measurement, 2" less on my arms, .5" less on my hips. Yes, that's not much progress in 4 years, but I'm movi... Read more

That was fun?

Monday, July 21, 2014      0 comments

I just finished Week 4 - Day 2 of Couch to 5K. I'd love to say it was exhilarating fun, but I'd be lying. I made it through the first half ok, but the second part was "forced" and my mind collapsed my body. I just started walking the last minute... Read more

Steady wins the race!

Saturday, July 19, 2014      2 comments

Just completed Week 4 Day 1 of Couch to 5K. That last 2 minutes took some mental warfare to make it through, but I succeeded! I just changed my goal of getting to goal weight by Jan 1 (at 2 lbs per week) to doing half of that by Jan 1. I'v... Read more

Up and Running Again

Saturday, July 12, 2014      2 comments

Today I finished Week 2/Day 3 of C25K (couch to 5K), and it felt great. The last time I tried this was summer 2011. I made it to the end of week 6 and broke my elbow. It's taken a while to get back up from that fall, even though the fall happene... Read more

One 30 Day Commitment

Saturday, July 20, 2013      1 comments

Because I'm ADD, it's very hard for me to stick to anything for an extended time (part of my struggle with weight loss). Today, I am committing to doing Jillian's 30 Day Shred (and nothing more). I've got 59 days until I have to go back to work ... Read more

Made in Heaven Mangoes

Saturday, July 06, 2013      1 comments

Yesterday, I got to experience the tropics in Texas - in my mouth. My husband bought some mangoes from Sprouts for a snack. I'm usually not a mango person but these mangoes were heavenly. I could picture these mangoes being plucked right from th... Read more

Almost 5-O

Thursday, July 04, 2013      4 comments

I never thought I'd be 50, and now I'm just weeks away. I don't know what 50 is supposed to feel like, but I don't feel like I'm almost 50. I'm not sure I'll feel or act "mature," whatever that means. The one thing I do know is that I don'... Read more

Peanut Butter

Wednesday, October 24, 2012      10 comments

I was demonstrating how to Explode the Moment (from Barry Lane) to make writing come alive for my students today and chose to write about eating peanut butter out of the jar. Wow, was that an eye opener! Here's what I learned: 1. I'm ... Read more

Sabotaging myself?

Sunday, October 21, 2012      3 comments

I know that I can't eat Wendy's sea salt fries (even 1/2 of a large container) at 9:30 at night and expect to see a positive change on the scale, but I do it anyway. Why do I do this? I've been steadily losing, and now, I've come to a complete h... Read more

Lose 10 lbs in 2 1/2 years!

Saturday, October 06, 2012      3 comments

I wonder how many people would buy a magazine with "Lose 10 lbs in 2 1/2 years" on the cover. I'd probably think it was an article lampooning all of those miracle diets advertised in women's magazines to suck you in to buying them (of which I ha... Read more
