Last week on Monday when I weighed myself, I was 199.2 lbs. Thursday, I was down to 197.8 lbs. This morning, I'm 194.4. So what I'm doing is working! I planned to go back to the gym this morning, but I don't particularly enjoy the spinning teach... Read more
Struggling a bit today
Well, last night I ended right at the low end of my calories, which is awesome. I was able to enjoy my evening, got a little snacking in, but totally kept it under control. I'm feeling a bit munchy today, though. I'm trying to keep myself occupi... Read more
I don't really know what's going on.
In all honesty, I haven't been too strict with myself since about the beginning of October. My head is just not in the game, I've been working out consistently but my calories are all over the board. I've said in my head "screw it" on more than ... Read more
Well I fell off the wagon. Then it turned around and ran back over me. Three times. Then I hit it with a flame thrower.
Thats about how this past month has been. I'm vowing tomorrow to get back on track. I've sucked at counting calories, an... Read more
Breathe and reboot.
Yesterday was better. We went to the pumpkin patch during the day, and I was really good with food there. I had about a handful of popcorn and half of a candied apple, and that was it. It was fun with Max. He got to run around and pet all kinds ... Read more
Sorry, this is a novel. I'm frustrated!
This was just straight up NOT a good food week.
I felt all week like I couldn't get full, and even when I was full I just kept eating. I would love to attribute it to stress, but I'm not aware of any exorbitant amounts of stress that would ... Read more
I think I'm hibernating
I have been SO HUNGRY this week. It hasn't been cold, it's been unseasonably warm (high 70s/low 80s) and sunny) all week, so I know it's not the weather. I don't know what's going on but I just keep shoving food in my mouth! I've gone over for t... Read more
I am SORE today!
So I took last week off of exercising because I was sick, but unfortunately I didn't take the week off of eating. I'm up a pound.
Sad, yes, disappointed, yes. But defeated? no. I did my 100 walking lunges for my team c... Read more
Heavy Part 2
Okay. Watched the first 6 episodes of Heavy and I really enjoyed the format. Now, 6 episodes in, they changed it.
I really liked that they were gone for a month and then monitored going back into their lives to help them succeed. Now they a... Read more
So I'm home sick today, which not only puts a damper on my workouts as I can't breathe without coughing violently, but also allows me to catch some new stuff on my Netflix Instant Queue.
We don't have TV here, we rely on the internet for en... Read more
A better day.
After writing that blog yesterday, I finally got my butt in gear. I reigned in the snacking and tracked everything that went into my mouth (except the 90 cal bag of popcorn I had last night, but I know it fits into my day cause I was only around... Read more
Need to reign it in again!
Man, the snacking is getting the better of me again! I just keep finding things in my mouth. I must have some sort of oral fixation or something, cause I know I'm not hungry, but it feels good to eat. Ugh. That's horrible. Now that I've typed it... Read more
I was on my way to work this morning, and a commercial came on for a test study that they are conducting "in my area" for a product called HGC5000. They were saying things like "If you could stand to lose up to 2 pounds per day without any stren... Read more
I'm still here!
Man the last few weeks have just been BUSY! I've been doing really well, though. I lost 1.2 this week, which I was really happy with.
My mom, her friend SK and my niece, Keora, came this weekend. It was Keora's first night away from her mo... Read more
Slightly better so far today
Okay. Yesterday was a flub. The munching this week is going to stop. I am moving on.
I went to Spinning this morning, and I was a total space cadet. There's no way I burned the amount of calories I needed to burn to make yesterday bearable.... Read more
