I haven't been this sick in years. I am seriously concerned about dehydration because I maybe, MAYBE got 2 cups of water in yesterday, my throat hurts so bad. And food... forget about it. Anything with milk, fruit, salt or chunks feels like m... Read more
Funny, but I'm actually glad my thyroid is not kickin like it should. I've taken such good care of myself, and I couldn't figure out why I'm so run down when I'm getting a.) regular exercise b.) 7-8 hours of sleep and c.) nutritionally dense fo... Read more
I have to admit that I don't get sick often... even before clean eating. But stuff is going around - my school, my kids' schools, everywhere. I woke up this morning, did my running/cardio day and by the time I was finished, my throat was sore.... Read more
before I go out to shop for our clean food this week...
Not only am I down 10 pounds the last 2 weeks, my clothes are swimming on me. The cute little jean capri's that I loved last summer (size 14) can now be pulled off my body without un-... Read more
Another HUGE loss...
I guess I need to accept that I am definately NOT the "average" loser. Remember my 6-lb weight gain about a month ago that left me depressed and discoraged??? I quit weighing myself because I just felt so rotten all the time. Well, now I'm d... Read more
Well - I guess it had to happen. A binge. I am not proud of it, but I need to acknowledge it for sure. Here's how my day went.
Got up late today (6am) because I didn't have school. I was scheduled for blood work (fasting) at 8am (which... Read more
My first fall - and good news too
Let's start with the good news... I'm down 3.5 pounds this week. I am proud of myself for not giving up. I debated changing my calorie range (lower? higher?) changing my workout (more? less?) and in the end, decided to keep doing what I was d... Read more
Meanwhile, last night was barf night... I was up at 2:00am with the 3YO, who was barfing. His sister joined him this morning. I didn't get the workout in and I am barely awake right now at 7:40pm. So I'm readjusting my schedule to make Wednes... Read more
Bless her heart!
So I'm facilitating a learning activity today in my Sheltered alg/geo 2 class today. My dear English Language learners (ELLs) are always so much fun, and really funny too. Lucia, the class comedienne, although she doesn't yet realize it, is on... Read more
One more thought about the weight gain (just can't let it drop, can I?) - I'm wondering if my thyroid has dropped again. This would definitely make weight gain a possibility. I wouldn't have thought of this if I haven't also been really tired ... Read more
Yesterday we took the kids hiking for a couple of hilly miles. They did phenomenally well, and at one point they wanted to climb down a rocky slope. S took them and I took the 'stuff' and went around via the trail to wait for them at the botto... Read more
Very Active Day
I got up early, as usual, and did my CP25K routine... 35 minutes + stretching. Then I decided I wanted to feel it more, so I hopped back on the treadmill and walked (only 2.0mph) backwards. Later in the morning, S came up with the idea of taki... Read more
Enough of the Pity Party
I hope. I wasn't going to put my "new" weight in the tracker because I kept hoping it wasn't realy. Well, 1 week later and no change and I'm putting in my +6 or +7 pound increase tomorrow (my weigh-in day). And I'm not giving up. I'm wonderi... Read more
NOT a great couple of days
Not completely HORRIBLE either, but I'm feeling kinda down.
1. I am up 5 pounds. I know... TOM, sortof. I had LOST almost 5 pounds the week before TOM, and I was really doubting that number. So +5 (and no bad days, and all good exerci... Read more
Once again, dinner with the folks. A roast that I would have died for 6 months ago (heck... 2 months ago), baked potato and baked sweet potato, salad with homemade blue cheese vinaigrette, green beans with butter. I don't know about anyone els... Read more
