So... With the addition of green smoothies to our diets, I have all this energy and I've found a super workable system of getting everything I need to do, done, daily! Amazing it has taken this long to feel like a productive, un-overwhelme... Read more

So, I gained a pound and a half since Dec 20th, the last time I weighed myself, and I'm six pounds away from the goal I had set for myself for Jan 1. Oh,well. On the plus side, I swam today and spent 35 minutes on the treadmill. A... Read more

So, I haven't weighed myself in 2 weeks. I was going to last Monday, which is the day I've been weighing at the gym, but I didn't make it down to the locker room because we didn't swim and I just went straight home....and the week before I was... Read more

So....I've got a handle on the eating and tracking my food. Showing results, losing weight. Joined a gym and have been doing some sort of cardio, either treadmill or cycle almost every day for a half hour, and on most days swimming laps for 10... Read more
Almost good
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      1 comments

Actually, I should have titled this "Mostly Good" because I think that's what I've been, but yesterday was a slip up, and because I didn't track it I'm not sure how bad. First of all, missed the gym and won't be able to go again until Frida... Read more

I was starting to dip into a bit of a funk this morning. Even though on the outside I was making a green smoothie, tracking my calories, cleaning the kitchen, planning our meals and working productively, there was a section of my brain roped of... Read more
Lost 2 lbs!

Had a doctor's appt today and he weighed me. I lost 2 lbs. I'm starting to actually feel encouraged and seeing that this might work after all. I haven't posted any long term goals, not wanting to get ahead of myself. But I may st... Read more

Every time I go to the gym with my husband I feel like I'm on vacation. The endorphins, the hot shower, the pool, the jacuzzi. Love it. And we can go every day if we want. So far, it's been almost every day! I saw a link on one of t... Read more

I took the plunge last week and weighed myself, for the first time in a long time outside of the doctor's, and now that we've joined the gym, I decided I will weigh myself weekly. So I weighed myself again today, a week later, and I lost 1.5 lb... Read more
New Day!

I sort of knew it would be a rocky end of the day when I had only 500 calories left @ 2pm. It's those damn white bean burgers. They are delicious, and healthy, and home-made, but they have almost 300 calories each, and I had two of them. I t... Read more
5 lbs

Well, I actually weighed myself at the gym and I actually lost 5 lbs from when I started. It's the first time I weighed myself since the doctor visit a few weeks ago, or maybe a month ago. I have to check my calendar. I seem to remember it wa... Read more

Had weird dreams last night. In one dream I was checking in at a counter and it was either my doctor's office or someplace else with the receptionist from my doctor's office and she told me that I looked 89 years old. And then she said when I ... Read more

It's so much easier to track food when I'm eating at home. This weekend was difficult, being out of town, but I did it. The only thing I left out of the tracker was Twizzlers. And quite a few of them. 3 of them are 130 calories. My husband b... Read more

I'm out of town for two nights with my husband. We got a late start leaving the city, so we ordered in japanese before we left -- i didn't have anything prepared for dinner, thought we'd be eating at the hotel. I wanted sushi but ordered ... Read more
Blocked artery
Wednesday, October 26, 2011      1 comments

My husband's CT showed some heart disease. An artery blocked 50% and it will be treated medically, not surgically. Not a crisis situation but one that requires lifestyle changes. He's already eating well so we are going to up the exercise and... Read more
