Time for some new goals
So I've been floundering since fall and it's time to get back to some weight loss instead of maintenance.
My first goal is to hit 179 by March 19th. It's just a little one, but it's a great way to show myself in back on track.
The next one w... Read more
Doing It for the Kid(s)
Part of the reason I have set out to get healthy in the past, is to completely ingrain new behaviours as habits which I can model for my children. Well, ... Read more
Slow and Steady? Trying not to stall.
Hello to all! I am happy I say that I am, overall, doing well. I've lost almost 70 lbs (counting the baby) since the end of my pregnancy, and I have just over 30 left to my ultimate goal. I have about 11-12 lbs to go to my pre-pregnancy weight. ... Read more
I thought I had made a blog entry when I came back to SparkPeople in March. I was going to come and give a much overdue update. As it turns out I haven't made an entry since 2012, so I am very very much overdue.
I've been losing on average ... Read more
Firing the Committee
Just a quick update from me. I am slow but steady. Staying the course. I'm on vacation right now, but I've been so embroiled in horse stuff that it barely feels like vacation. The good news is that I have another week still, and 3 more in Au... Read more
Another goal down
I woke up this morning to 148 on my scale. This was my June 10th goal, which I have readjusted to 147.
But annoyingly enough, I'm having a "fat day" today. I'm feeling less than svelte today and I got some pics of me riding that made me a... Read more
Medium term goals
I am happy to report that things are on track. I am traveling again this week. I ate almost nothing all day and had a slightly extravagant dinner, but stayed within my range. Tomorrow may be harder but I am going to try and fit in the gym.

Yoga and riding
Hi spark friends. This is a pretty rando update. Life is good. I'm pretty much staying on track and doing well. The scale is fluctuating a bit again, but since my TOM is due I'm not panicking. I've been pretty good about staying in my calorie r... Read more
Not much to report. I'm trucking along here, being pretty consistent with food and exercise. I went for a run yesterday evening.
My SLF is back and I have explained to her what I need in terms of support to do this. It helped that I got... Read more
Running with the soccer girls
A couple of my buddies came over for a run this evening. I set out to do 3 or 4 kms. I ended up doing 4.93 in 30 mins with 3 mins walking in there. Yikes. Who knew I could run that fast, especially after all this time off. !?!? I think I'll ta... Read more
This morning the scale welcomed me with 151 lbs!
Originally my short term goal was to get to 150 by June 10, but I have revised that to 148. I should also make a confession which I have made before. My scale is a little low. I think this a... Read more
What Your Friends Think
Something funny happened last night at my friends' wedding last night. No less than 4 of my friends walked up to me and commented on how I seem happy. Some were newer friends who knew me only briefly before my separation. But a couple have also ... Read more
So today wasn't the best ever. I tracked all of my calories and came in just over 2000. Ah well. Weddings happen. I drank quite a bit (for me). Given what I could have eaten I did ok. Tomorrow is a new day.... Read more
Thursday, Friday and Saturday
Thursday went ok. I was pretty darn good but had a b-day dinner with a friend who was in town from London. So I ate about 1800 calories and took a day off from the gym. Not in my target, but still pretty reasonable. Friday was a good day on the ... Read more
Wednesday - Almost There
So guess what!? So far I am rocking Wednesday.
I did some pre-tracking/guesswork about what would be served and allotted myself food for breakfast and lunch. As a result, wouldn't you know, I stuck to it. My only slip was that I had a li... Read more
