So I'm doing the usual 'get ready to go out' dance... looking through my closet at all the clothes that I hate - either because I feel fat in them or because they are too tight and I feel fat in them. ON a whim I pulled out a kahki skirt that w... Read more

First off - I am proud of myself. Stayed clean today and within my calorie range. Drank a TON of water (quit tracking at 8 glasses though), took my multi-vitamin and got on the treadmill. So what's up? Tonight we had our bi-monthly small... Read more

Yep... I have lost about 6 pounds since I started this Clean Eating and this past week I noticed that my favorite pairs of jeans were hanging a little low. So I pulled out the 'too small - but barely' jeans just to see, and they fit! Now I've... Read more

Finally, we're home! It's been a long week, and I've got so much catching up to do before school starts. Good news first - I stepped on the scale when we got home (I ate really well - even with the traveling, and probably less because my choi... Read more

Got on the scale again this morning. I'm back up to 174 (from 172) YIPES! I know that the sodium has been crazy since Christmas (from the turkey - my lean protein - of all things!) and I'm hoping that is the main reason. I stayed within my c... Read more

Well - I did it. I stayed clean. My parents invited us over for pizza and we accepted. It's snowing like crazy and we had to put off our road trip, as did they. So nobody was prepped for a big dinner. We went over and I made my OWN pizza. ... Read more

A little depressed... I KNOW that this not the end-all, but it seems the scale is creeping back up. I know I weighed myself too early (3 days). I KNOW that I am eating much better and exercising and that is the important thing. But it is stil... Read more

BP tonight - 122/66 Day 2! I went ahead and figured out the calories in the mousse... I just couldn't let it go - I even tracked it. I'm not too horribly over my range. I am really proud that I served myself 1/8 of the mousse (says it se... Read more

Did okay today, but not as well as I would have wished. The kids and I made S's favorite fudge for his Christmas present, and I licked the spoon. Which made me want M&Ms, which I haven't gotten rid of yet (they're dark chocolate, and I guess I... Read more

Today was crazy, I didn't plan on paper, but in my head I knew exactly what my options were. I tracked as well so I didn't get off track. Dinner is in a few minutes, and everything has gone well INCLUDING no low blood sugars! I've been ... Read more
