I met my first goal!!!
I weighed this morning because I knew that I was going to eat my face off for Max's birthday today, and I didn't want salt to be a factor. So I weighed in and I'm down 1.4!!!!! I surpassed my first weight goal which means I get to order a Sparkp... Read more
I'm still fighting off whatever this is. I can feel it seeping into my bones. I'm tired - not just exhausted-I-need-a-break-to-re
lax tired but like...sleepy tired. My eyes are burning and I feel like I could fall asleep at any time. I've bee... Read more
My sore throat started coming back. And now it has brought it's friend, the headache.
I popped a Halls cough drop, and the wrapper had a bunch of writing on it:
"Impress yourself today"
"Buckle down and push forth!"
"You can do it ... Read more
Hangin in there
Well, I'm feeling better. My throat is anyway. I've been really tired this week, though, so I know I"m fighting something off. Sunday night I was feeling better after A LOT of tea, so I had packed to go to the gym Monday morning, but at 4am I go... Read more
Ugh. I feel icky.
Yesterday I woke up with a little tickle in my throat, but overall I was still okay. I tried to drink a lot of water, take extra vitamin C, and hopefully kick it. Unfortunately that didn't work. I woke up this morning with... Read more
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!
