Progress!

Sunday, March 06, 2011      3 comments

Finally! Something is WORKING! I think staying right around 1500-1600 calories is definitely my happy range. I lost a pound this week! I'd be happy at a pound per week (I'd be happier with more but I'll take what I can get!). Finally, my 2 month... Read more

"Happy" range

Sunday, February 27, 2011      5 comments

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

Weekend

Sunday, February 13, 2011      2 comments

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

2/9/11

Wednesday, February 09, 2011      0 comments

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!

Tuesday, February 01, 2011      0 comments

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

Rough weekend

Sunday, January 30, 2011      1 comments

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!

Thursday, January 27, 2011      3 comments

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

Doing better!

Monday, January 24, 2011      4 comments

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

Cheat day

Friday, January 21, 2011      3 comments

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!

Thursday, January 20, 2011      2 comments

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 :(

Tuesday, January 18, 2011      0 comments

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!

Monday, January 17, 2011      1 comments

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

Big day!

Sunday, January 16, 2011      1 comments

Sunday Sunday. 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

Friday, January 14, 2011      0 comments

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
