we're heeeeeere! Day 22!
YAY I LOOVE THESE PEOPLE!
The drive was uneventful, even pleasant. The family is greaaaat!
Everything according to plan!! I ate leftover soup for lunch @ McDonald's (heh), had my healthy snacks for the car, and lobbied for the salad... Read more
Gotta go! & Day 21
Quick update! I was low on fiber, high on sodium yesterday but otherwise good. I'm packed & got in a swim this morning (wheeee!) So I'm off!
August accomplishments - December progress so far (December 1-2... Read more
Quick update: Day 20
Wow, I have a lot to do before traveling tomorrow!
I'm still doing okay challenge-wise. I seem to meet either stretch protein or fiber but not both. So far nothing is out of the running, as far as beating August.
I still need to get ... Read more
Holiday challenges list, detailed!
I'm learning from all these parties and things so far that I really need to have a specific plan!
So I'm trying to think of what all of my challenges will be over the holidays, and how I might deal with them.
We leave Saturday, so chal... Read more
Important lessons; Day 19
Interesting day yesterday. I think TOM is coming so my body is holding on to water weight, plus crankiness and sugar cravings. Another department brought our department cookies, and there was one of those damnable Lofthouse ones on the tray. ... Read more
YAY SWIMMING. Day 18
I very much enjoyed my swim last night.
I was feeling lazy again but I do NOT want this to be a fitness-minute-free week!!! So I did my grocery shopping (I may have gone a LITTLE overboard, in the sense that I now have 12 breakfasts prep... Read more
Days 15-17 update!
3 days gone = LONG UPDATE! You’ve been warned…
AHH PARTIES! The company and camaraderie was very fun. Work friends on Saturday night, family on Sunday (kids birthday party), and then work party AT work on Monday.
My super cute 3-y-o... Read more
WAH I'M SO TIRED
I was caramelizing onions at 1:30am last night. I'll save the REST of that story for tomorrow afternoon, along with my Days 15-16-17 updates. Holiday or other type parties ALL THREE OF THOSE DAYS by the way. I'll be 1/3 for staying in my calo... Read more
Quick update: Day 14
Sodium was high yesterday; everything else was good. I don't mind the high sodium as much since I think most of it came from homemade lentil soup - which was AWESOME and lots of fiber, protein, and veggies. I used less broth and salt but didn'... Read more
Day 13; Decisions, decisions.
I'm almost to the halfway point, which is crazy. I think I'm going to use Dec 16 as "halfway," so maybe I'll take my measurements again.
I'm trying to decide something... Should I keep blogging while I'm away for the holidays? I'll be out... Read more
Day 12: Fancy salad day!
I'm holding steady at 260 pounds/40 lost.
I had a great swim last night, plus discovered the gym is having a half price day pass special, so I got half my money back! They also told me you can buy several passes and stock them up under y... Read more
Day 11! NSV
Okay yesterday! I met everything but stretch fiber and sodium. Eating out and then making something quick for dinner is partly to blame. Also because I was running around all day I didn't get as much water or veggies, but I didn't do horribly... Read more
Monday! PT! Husby! Day 10!!
Hey, thanks for all the encouragement, buddies!!
And HI, obviously it's Tuesday, but I am updating about yesterday which was Monday.
I'm still doing pretty well. Yesterday was a workout day. I did upper body ST and some walking on ... Read more
Heading for week 2! Day 9.
Survived the weekend! Hit everything but cholesterol, which was jusssst over (by maybe 10mg).
TOM was about a week late, but now that it's gone the scale has plummeted a couple of times. No complaints here!
Just chillin, watchin my... Read more
Lazy weekend. Day 8.
I definitely am noticing I feel like overeating and eating garbage on the weekends. I kept it pretty well in check yesterday. Met everything but my "stretch" goal for protein, and I was a little over on cholesterol.
Not bad for Day 8.
