I gained 1.2 this week! I don't really know how that's possible. I exercised every day this week - and was generally much more active than normal. My eating was probably better this week than in general. My sodium was in check almost every sin... Read more
Yesterday was an AWESOME food day! I hit right in the middle of all of my goals - even fiber! Having Amethyst here has just been awesome. She's so inspiring, and I get some great food ideas from her. Having someone around who is conscious of the... Read more
I stumbled on this article today that pretty much sums up my feelings on eating healthy and wellness. This is the original link to the article: www.davesoucy.com/2009/0 6/stop-trying-to-eat-right/

Yesterday I didn't make it to my minimum calories. It kind of surprised me, actually - we had some friends in from out of town and went out for breakfast (which was freaking fantastic, by the way), and my breakfast alone was around 700 calories... Read more
I threw it away. The yummy hummingbird cake is in the garbage. I found myself last night after Max's 1am feeding picking at it with a fork. I put it on yesterday's calories, and it ended up being fine calorie-wise, but that could have gotten d... Read more
Okay, so I looked up some recipes for lasagna and hummingbird cake online, and I don't think I did as badly as I originally thought I did. The cake probably wasn't 700 some calories - most of the recipes are saying that a regular slice is aroun... Read more
I COMPLETELY obliterated my calories for today. Truly, that's an understatement - there are no words for what happened with my calories today.
It started early on - I was just having a ridiculously hungry day today. I haven't been getting... Read more
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
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
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
...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
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
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
