Week 59 - Happy Fathers' Day
Sunday, June 19, 2016      2 comments

I miss my dad today. He's been gone 6 years now and I don't often miss him anymore, but I do today. I know my mom is missing him too and I think that's the problem. Her brother was just diagnosed with cancer and I know she's having a tough ti... Read more
Week 58 - It Seems Like I Keep Doing This
Sunday, June 12, 2016      3 comments

I have a really great few weeks and then I lose all motivation. I'm in that cycle again. I just have to work on it being a small "blip" rather than a downward spiral.... Read more
Week 57 - Almost Forgot
Sunday, June 05, 2016      1 comments

This hasn't been the most "on point" week. I had one of those weeks where two little changes in my schedule threw me completely off. I'm trying to get back on schedule now but the heat is making it hard. Summer is my least favourite season. ... Read more
Week 56 - Keeping on Track
Sunday, May 29, 2016      2 comments

I'm on a roll. I've been exercising consistently and I've been keeping my calories within a range that's comfortable. I've been getting results. And not just on the scale. I feel like I can do this. I've been able to focus on some of my... Read more
Week 55 - Hmmm...
Sunday, May 22, 2016      0 comments

I'm at a loss for blogging this week. I had a good week, pretty much stayed exactly where I wanted to, made my goals and even lost some weight. I don't have a new plan to try to figure out. I'm still working on the old one. I have no triumph... Read more
Week 54 - Ups and Downs
Sunday, May 15, 2016      0 comments

It's been a weird week. I've been overeating calories most of the week (cravings are killing me) but I've been pretty consistent with exercise. If I can combine the two I might actually see some weight loss again. I had quite a few non-sc... Read more
Week 53 - And Now a New Year Begins...
Monday, May 09, 2016      3 comments

So... it's been a whole year for my latest weight loss attempt. And while I didn't end up where I hoped to I'm going to call it a success. I wanted to lose 50 pounds this year. That was a pound a week, factoring in some weeks where I'd ... Read more
Week 52 - This Weight Loss Thing is Hard
Sunday, May 01, 2016      2 comments

Last week started off really well. It didn't end that way. I just lost the motivation to exercise and to pay attention to what I was eating. I just wanted to be me. Not the new me. The old me. It was easier to be the old me. There's... Read more
Week 51 - Almost Back to Normal
Sunday, April 24, 2016      0 comments

My foot's finally healed. My house guest leaves on Wednesday. Almost back to normal. There will be less tempting food sitting around. I won't feel bad about exercising in the evening. I won't have to deal with someone being worried if I go ... Read more
My Mini Triumph
Thursday, April 21, 2016      4 comments

Yesterday my youngest son was involved in an activity that prevented my husband from picking me up at work. I had planned to take the bus home. It's a two bus trip for me: work to downtown, downtown to home. I only take the bus rarely so ther... Read more
Week 50 - I Won't Back Down
Sunday, April 17, 2016      2 comments

So I essentially stayed the same weight this week. Not entirely surprising as I didn't meet my calorie goals on most days. My goals for this week are the same as the goals for last week as I didn't meet my goals. I did get my daily steps ... Read more
Week 49 - Just Keep Going
Sunday, April 10, 2016      3 comments

So it wasn't the best week. But it wasn't the worst either. I made my step goals every day. I made my water goals every day and I made my strength training goal for the week. I didn't get the calorie counting right. I wanted to see 191 on t... Read more
Week 48 - It Could Have Been Worse
Sunday, April 03, 2016      1 comments

So it wasn't the best week, but it wasn't the worst either. I'm trying to build on the positives and get myself back on track. I feel like I've been off track for so long that I'm really starting over.... Read more
Week 47 - I'm Not Quitting
Sunday, March 27, 2016      4 comments

I'm not quitting. I feel like it. I haven't been exercising. I haven't been paying attention to calories or water or anything. I'm blogging today because if I don't blog I'll have officially quit and I don't want to do that. So... foot ... Read more
Week 46 - Seriously!?
Sunday, March 20, 2016      0 comments

Every time I feel poised to make progress something happens to kill it. I was on vacation this week. I knew I would fall on the calories but felt I could hold steady with activity. I took my running stuff with me. I ran on 2 of the 3 days av... Read more
