Day two, 2015
So, day two went relatively well. I tracked my food, drank 8 ounces of water, exercised for 30 minutes. Pretty good really.
Tomorrow, however, will be a more stressful day and sadly, I tend to handle stress with food. I wish there was something... Read more
Day one, 2015
okay. So it's actually January 4, but it's day one for me. I've done this, and I've done this well, but I haven't done this for a long time.
What I have done is change my attitude, my habits, my life. About seven years ago I lost 40 pounds on S... Read more
A fresh start
Congratulations to me! Three nights ago I graduated with a master's degree in Education, Equity and Cultural Diversity from the University of Colorado. It has been a two-and-one-half year journey during which there were times that I was barely... Read more
So - after weeks of doing everything right, I took a much-needed hiatus from the over-analyzing I'd been doing. I had a beer. I bought and ate, IN MUCH MODERATION, a bag of gluten-free chocolate-covered pretzels. I didn't track, but I made go... Read more
Can't believe it's been so long...
Seems like only a few days ago since I posted my last blog. Has it really been a week and a half?
Well, I'm still not losing any weight. I haven't given up, but I did take a bit of a TypeA, hyper-control break. Last week I lost one of m... Read more
After having a bit of a panic attack (well - not really - but it sure didn't feel good) about gaining when I've been doing EVERYTHING right, I've settled down. And weighed myself again - for the official weigh-in of the Biggest Loser Challenge ... Read more
So... as I've said before - when I lost 40 pounds about 5 years ago I did it by 1.) clean eating (I just started with this - no exercise for the first couple of weeks... just focused on my food choice). Then added 2.) light aerobics - mostly j... Read more
Just a little self-pep talk...
I dropped almost 1-1/2 pounds this week. Not bad, but I was aiming for 2 so I was not really excited. And then... well... then I decided to take measurements as part of my tracking and
... wow. That was tough. Actually wrapping the mea... Read more
New Year - New Me
So far the week has gone well... I've eaten clean 90-100% of the time, I've exercised almost every day. I've tracked meals as much as I could. I think I've lost a pound or two, but I'll have to check in the morning. (When I weigh myself right... Read more
New Year - New Plan
Husband is on board (yeah!) so we're doing this together. I'm ready - now that I just finished my toughest semester at the University (2 classes, took 1+ hours to get there and 45 min to get home, course work PLUS full time job) and I'm on brea... Read more
Back... again... and again
Wow - history of my life. Reading through my old blogs (and an old journal last night) I realize just how hard it is to be consistent with life. It's crazy! In the past 10 years I have had 2 children, unexpectedly had to return full-time to w... Read more
For all my personal research I have discovered that I have not only a gluten sensitivity and a dairy sensitivity but now soy is out too. Yikes! Just when I got used to reading labels for gluten and dairy/cassien I now have soy to worry about t... Read more
First Update - 2/11/12
One week down - here's how it's going:
What I HAVE done:
1. I have tracked most days... I started out strong - tracking every day Saturday - Wednesday. Then life got crazy and I dropped it on Thursday and Friday. BUT - I was eating pr... Read more
Well - I know I've been slacking off (not exercising, eating carelessly, etc.) but it really hit me when I was in a sushi restaraunt with my daugher 2 nights ago and I turned and looked at my reflection in the full-length window. WOW! UGH! My... Read more
