Staying (mostly) strong
I've been doing really well, actually. Despite slip ups, which were on some level intentional, I'm sticking to it.
Bootcamp is going well. I've done my daily videos, tracked my goals. Pilates didn't kill me as much this week as it did last ... Read more
I don't know what's going on with me, but I just got the strongest urge to join Sparkpeople's 28 day bootcamp. I must be crazy!
I felt so good yesterday after losing that 2 lbs and exercising when it wasn't required of me, that today I was ... Read more
It's amazing what losing weight can do for your motivation! I've been a ROCK STAR with food today. Breakfast was steel cut oats. I had a snack of low fat string cheese but Max ate half of it. Lunch was pretty much ALL veggies (who AM I????? I ha... Read more
The flavor of the steel cut oats was great. They are definitely more filling than instant oatmeal. I enjoyed them, I added some maple syrup, brown sugar and cinnamon. The texture was still weird to me, though. A little chewy - almost tough. I'm ... Read more
Holy crap it worked!
I stuck to my guns yesterday. I didn't even eat Max's leftover dinner! I stayed right at the top of my calories, and drank a lot of water. I got a good nights sleep, woke up this morning, and I was down 1.8!!!!!! I'm .8 away from my first goal!

I don't know what is going on today! I'm just having a hungry day or something. I know that weekends are harder, too. But so far I'm still okay. Just gotta keep it in check now.
Had a big breakfast - Saturdays are always pancakes, and the v... Read more
Why did I just do that?
I just finished up Max's sweet and sour chicken from last night. It was half of an entree, no rice. But I just wolfed it down. ugh. 600+ calories later...
Can still be on track today. Sodium will probably be high. Again. Dangit. What happen... Read more
Well, with the salt last night I weighed this morning at my same weight from last week. So that's good. I am sticking with my plan to drink a lot of water today and hopefully I'll be down tomorrow. I do have some of my chinese food leftover for ... Read more
Slip up and recovery!
Yesterday was a great day. We were having one of my favorite dinners - unstuffed peppers with quinoa - and I finished my serving and even though I was totally satisfied, I really wanted another serving. I had the calories for it, so I went and g... Read more
I found this great blog online that had a wonderful list of 100 calorie (or fewer) snacks that are designed to fill you up. I am posting it here as much for my own reference as to share it with others. Some great ideas that I'm excited to try!

Jumping in head first today!
I'm feeling much more in the game today. I woke up and started a new class of reformer pilates today. It's an 8 week thing, kinda bummed it's only 30 min once a week. It was a good class. And 2 1/2 hours later my body is still all jello-y.

Today was more difficult
Today was the first day since restarting that I went over my calories. It was by less than 50 calories, though, so I'm not going to stress about it. And for all of the days that I was way UNDER my range, one day less than 50 over won't hurt me.

What's your "scary" food?
Do you have a food that you try to avoid in most cases because it's too easy to go overboard? I have a lot of SITUATIONS like this, the Chinese buffet being one of them, but I'd have to say that my scary food is definitely pizza.
My guess i... Read more
Threw me a curveball...
...but I knocked it out of the park!
Weekends are definitely harder for me, but I did pretty well. I had my standard Saturday Morning Breakfast of pancakes with carob chips and butterscotch chips. That is definitely more calories than a wee... Read more
It's been a good week!
This week has been really good for me. I'm freaking exhausted, but food/exercise wise it's been an A+ week.
We had art club last night so we had to stay late for that. We aer also staying tonight to finish a mural that is needed for a dedi... Read more
