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

Quick update: Day 14

Saturday, December 15, 2012      4 comments

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.

Friday, December 14, 2012      3 comments

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!

Thursday, December 13, 2012      5 comments

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

Wednesday, December 12, 2012      6 comments

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

Heading for week 2! Day 9.

Sunday, December 09, 2012      3 comments

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.

Sunday, December 09, 2012      2 comments

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. ... Read more

Taking it for granted: Day 7

Friday, December 07, 2012      3 comments

I did go for my swim tonight.  It was a workout and a lesson. There was one other woman there; it turned out she was working with a private swim coach.  As I started my first lap and her coach was getting kick boards and stuff, like a je... Read more

I am so smart, S-M-R-T. DAY 6.

Friday, December 07, 2012      3 comments

(title because we loooove the Simpsons around here) Yesterday was rough. I think I’ve identified the problem, though. I think I’ve been pushing a little too hard on increasing the protein, in the sense that it can lead me to poor c... Read more

Wednesday, December 05, 2012      8 comments

Still crushing it! I was cooking dinner tonight... making an embarassing comfort-food recipe from my childhood. It's not the healthiest thing in the world, but I measured everything, tracked it, only ate a serving size that would fit in my ... Read more
