Okay. Soo. Staying between 1200 and 1500 didn't help anything. Well that's not entirely true - it shrunk my stomach and reaffirmed that I don't need to eat all that much to be satisfied.
After doing some research, with the help of this site... Read more
Friday was a wicked cheat day for me. It was planned, and I told myself before it was even here that I was allowing myself 3,000 calories (or whatever). I'd been hungry ALL week, so I was really really looking forward to it.
Once a month we... Read more
I've been struggling enough this past week just to make a difference in my weight. I've been CLOSE to my calorie range, albeit over pretty much every day. Sometimes by 30 calories, sometimes by 200. I haven't gone TOTALLY overboard, but I'm jus... Read more
Shaping up to be a good week!
Monday was a TOUGH day. Not having anything to do with food, I actually didn't have much of an appetite, but because of..just everything!
I woke up and went to spinning at 5:30 because I wanted to try my new shoes. Roads were dry, it was fo... Read more
The past few days have been a little rough. We have some friends in from out of town, but that's not even the problem. It's all me. I've just been snacking and snacking all weekend. With my meals yesterday, I was well within range with a bunch t... Read more
My baby boy is 1 today!
One year ago I gave birth to Max! It has definitely been a roller coaster of a year, but a great one. It's fun to see him learn and grow; every day something new!
I wish I felt like I had more control of my body, though. I hated being pregn... Read more
So after my 3000 calorie day on Friday I ended up losing 1.2 lbs this week! I'm happy with that. I can handle it. I'm definitely a big proponent of the cheat day to allow your metabolism to kind of regenerate. I still have a long way to go to ge... Read more
I resolved to let myself over my calories today because it was Munch and Mingle, aka Fat Friday. Teachers (or in this case, the paraprofessionals) bring yummy delicious food to the lounge and we all stuff our faces. I think if I give myself 1 ch... Read more
Whoops! Missed a day!
Oopsies I forgot to blog yesterday! Oh well, I had a good streak going.
Yesterday was a good day, I guess. I was hungry, but I went to spinning in the morning which always revs up my appetite for the day. I stayed within range, though, so t... Read more
Over today :(
Well, I went over today. But in my defense, I changed my calorie ranges today and I did eat within my OLD range. Still, I probably didn't need the second chocolate chip cookie I had for dessert. Oh well. One day. It won't kill me.
I'm feeli... Read more
Back to the gym!
Today was my first day back to the gym in a few weeks, due to such a busy schedule. It felt really good. I did some water aerobics. The water was cold and then I was even colder coming back outside. So that wasn't fun. But it felt good to exerci... Read more
Tonight's new meal was Mexican Lasagna. It was AMAZING actually. While making it I was nervous because it seemed really disproportionate, but when it was done it was perfection. It didn't hold together as a lasagna well, thou... Read more
Here is day 3 of my blogging streak!
I tried a bunch of new recipes this week. Johnny's mom LOVES casseroles, and I generally enjoy the food she makes, so she brought some of her recipes from home this time and we've been trying a few out. ... Read more
Stronger every moment of each day
I remember last time I was successful with Spark I made an effort to blog almost every day. I enjoyed that, and I made up a great community of fellow sparkers that way. That is officially another one of my goals!
I don't always have anythin... Read more
Well, the no weighing backfired on me. Everything kind of backfired on me. I ended up gaining 13 pounds over December and the first part of January! I kind of gave up. Said f*** it. For December, resistance was futile. Yummy treats in the lounge... Read more
