Another pound down
Finally, I am down another pound. I have been stuck in the high 140s for a while, but it's no big surprise. I have been eating ice cream as a snack every night like there's going to be a worldwide ice cream shortage tomorrow or something. It's b... Read more
Then and Now
Recently I started a temporary job. In my last job, I used to commute to work about two hours each way. After I quit my old job, I realized how much time I DIDN'T devote to exercise and eating well when I was working and how EASY it was to pack ... Read more

Still standing still
Today I'm feeling kind of "blah." Maybe it's the rainy weather -- though it is a welcome relief. The air felt so cool for my walk to the gym this a.m. Scale still hasn't budged. I know I must not be trying very hard. Lately I am finding it di... Read more
Fighting to keep my resolve
Ok, today I am starting to feel like I am losing my resolve. I know this has to happen to everyone who ever tries to lose weight. For me, this feeling is not yet strong enough to be a problem, but it just took a little bit more self-nudging to g... Read more
Scale stubborn this week

I have decided that this week I will kic... Read more

Quit my job
Well, it's been a while since I've blogged. So much for my intentions of updating once a week! Between then and now, I quit my job and I must say, I have been enjoying the newfound freedom (until the reality of having no spending money sets in!!... Read more
The past week has been kind of disheartening because i know I am not doing as much as I could be for myself and my health. That celebratory trip to Israel is looking farther and farther away. Of course I know full well that I have to work for it... Read more
the ultimate gym-plan derailer
It's called the commute. It is the one thing that keeps me from going to the gym when I plan to go. I know i need to be strong, but at the end of a 2-hour drive, or ride in the car, I am just ready to eat dinner and collapse on the couch. Ughhhh... Read more
