Cream cheese as a CONDIMENT.
My first experience with cream cheese came at a ripe young age, somewhere around 7 or so. My grandparents on my dad's side had just flown in to Madison, WI from Cleveland, and they always flew on those tiny planes that don't get pulled up to th... Read more
I haven't been doing any specific strength training, although today, my shoulders would beg to differ.
I'm counting baby as my strength exercises.
In order to be burped a lot of the time, he has to be lifted up and down by his armpits.... Read more
Exercise day 1
Well, day 1 of exercising is a success! I sent out to do 20 minutes on the elliptical, and I did that with a 5 minute cool down. I only tracked it as 20 minutes though, since calorie burnage during cool down is minimal. It kicked my butt at fi... Read more
Another good loss!
I lost another 3 lbs this week! That means I'm down 6.2 from when I rejoined SP, and about 15 from the day I got home from the hospital. That's pretty awesome. It makes me even more excited to start exercising, though - even though I'm sore t... Read more
I think I'm ready...
...too start exercising again! I'm still a little sore, and my tailbone still hurts, but NOT exercising is kind of killing me. And I'm feeling a lot better than I was a week ago. I'm tired of being tired all the time from lack of activity! S... Read more
So far so good!
Well, so far I'm doing okay. There was one day where the choices I made were not great, but a friend of ours brought us dinner. It was really good, and I did better than I normally would - they brought Buffalo Wild Wings, and I ordered Naked T... Read more
Day 1 progress check
Well, it's only day one, but I'm feeling good! Drinking my water is the hardest part to get back to, actually. And I haven't devised a plan for dinner yet, so we'll see how that goes, but overall, I'm feeling good. I'm a little hungry today, ... Read more
I'M A MOMMY!!!
Maxwell John Voruz was welcomed into the world last Wednesday, January 27th at 9:41pm. I was in labor for 19 hours (I wonder how many calories THAT burns!) with hard pushing f... Read more
This is harder than I thought!
It's harder than i thought to get back into the habit of tracking. Mainly because my work computer is pretty ghetto, and it takes about 4 minutes to load a page, so I get impatient. And there was a while there where some of the pages wouldn't ... Read more
4 more weeks!
Well, I'm almost 36 weeks along in my pregnancy. So far everything has been going well, but the past few weeks I've started to get pretty uncomfortable. I'm a very short person, so he's got no where to grow but OUT. The pregnancy has been pre... Read more
The title of this entry really doesn't do justice to how rough of a week this really was for me. All said and done, I gained 7 lbs. That's unacceptable.
Last weekend we went back to Wisconsin for a wedding. Because of budget constraints ... Read more
So as it turns out, it's probably a good thing that I haven't been losing weight lately, because we found out last week that I'M PREGNANT!
We have been debating telling people, because, well, I'm only about 5 weeks along. There's still a h... Read more
Great fiber find!
So I was at walgreens today, and I found these All Bran Rolled Fiber Wafers. They had two flavors: Strawberry and Chocolate. I'm always game for new sources of fiber in my diet, so I decided to pick up a box. I grabbed the strawberry because m... Read more
UGH! I gained two pounds this week!!
I really don't know what's going on. I know that other times I've gained I have SOME sort of explanation of why things weren't working out for me, but this week I really don't know! My sodium has be... Read more
Last day tomorrow!
Wow. This school year really went by fairly quickly. It seems like just yesterday I was having my major breakdown session about my craptastic schedule, and now I've made it through 190 days of it. It doesn't feel like it's over. It doesn't f... Read more
