Best Advice
Monday, August 22, 2011      4 comments

What's the best advice you've gotten for weight loss or in general? I was thinking about that this morning because a friend of mine posted a few things that seemed pretty smart. For me? Eat slowly. I eat really quickly most meals and I notice th... Read more
What a headache!
Friday, August 19, 2011      2 comments

So things have been a bit crazy recently. Yesterday my doctor scared me by sending me to the ER. It turns out it's not incredibly normal to have a headache for three days. Either way, I'm slowly feeling back to normal again and am looking forwar... Read more
Back to the grind

Well, things are slowly returning to normal around here. They have been a bit hectic these last few weeks with family in town. I didn't put on much weight (1/2 lb) but I've already started to take it off which I'm glad about. Also, with the star... Read more
Just keep swimming, just keep swimming

I guess with myself it's more like, "Just keep treading". Things have been really crazy recently and I haven't been able to exercise so I'm just trying to not get too deep in a hole with my efforts. But as long as our head is above water we're o... Read more
Healthy House
Friday, July 29, 2011      2 comments

Today I was reading the article about overweight kids. It's really interesting because I know a LOT of my habits were formed while growing up in my house. My mom has always been very vocal about wanting to lose weight but does very little to cha... Read more
Everybody's working for the weekend
Thursday, July 28, 2011      1 comments

I am exhausted. This past week we've stayed at my parents' friends' house watching their dog and cat. Because the dog sheds like crazy we spent the majority of yesterday afternoon cleaning up before we went to pick them up from the airport. In a... Read more
Getting better
Wednesday, July 27, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday I went a little out of my calorie range (200kcal to be exact) but I also got in a good workout. I'm sticking with doing 30 minutes of brisk walking on a 5% incline followed by strength training (which I've been adding to). I felt prett... Read more
getting back up

Well yesterday I thought I hadn't done that well but at the end of the day when I put in my exercise and nutrition information I realized I hadn't done that poorly! I just wish I hadn't fallen down in the first place. Oh well. Anyone have advice... Read more
Crash and Burn
Monday, July 25, 2011      3 comments

This weekend I felt was an endless freefall. I wanted to do my best eating-wise and exercise. But I honestly had no energy and was abnormally exhausted. Very bad combination, especially when aded to the fact that this weekend was CRAZY running f... Read more
Not defeated
Friday, July 22, 2011      1 comments

In the past week I haven't weighed myself on the same scale more than once. Because of this I've also noticed that my "weight" has seemed to fluctuate a lot. My Wii says 191, the scale at my gym said 192 and the scale at my friend's house (we're... Read more
Success and gratitude
Thursday, July 21, 2011      1 comments

I find that the more gratitude I have for my weight loss the easier it gets. Not to say the process is easier, but I have more energy to keep it up. I'm not saying everyone needs to believe as I do, but my faith in God and the belief that He ... Read more
Slow and steady wins the race!
Tuesday, July 19, 2011      2 comments

I've recently had an a-ha moment. Whenever I've tried to lose weight I've always gone the route of "ASAP!" This has never had any lasting effects. My freshman year of college I tried a diet pill which made me the thinnest I've ever been, but als... Read more
Need to vent- not diet related
Monday, July 18, 2011      3 comments

I just need to vent really quick. I am tired of passive-aggressive people. I have two deans I work with. One who is always grumpy but you know has a good heart. The other acts like he's your friend and then when something minor is not quite how ... Read more

This weekend has been pretty good. Last night I made sure I only ate half of my entree (which was already pretty light) at the restaurant and I kept my calories relatively low (considering it was a weekend). I also got some walking in by going t... Read more
Wii can do it!
Thursday, July 14, 2011      2 comments

Yesterday my computer at work was NOT liking SparkPeople. Whenever I tried to do anything the Internet would shut down so I didn't get to post very much. It's still a little fickle today but it's at least letting me write this so I won't complai... Read more
