Week 39 - Finding Motivation

Wednesday, February 03, 2016      2 comments

I'm having such a hard time getting going this week. I keep telling myself today is the day I get back on track... and then I don't. I'm at least saying "today" and not "next week". That's something. So... today's Wednesday. I will get ... Read more

Week 38: Well, That Didn't Work

Sunday, January 24, 2016      1 comments

I was supposed to add more activity back into my schedule this week. I didn't. Circumstances at the beginning of the week threw me off-kilter and I never really righted myself. This week I'm going to try cascading goals. There's one thin... Read more

Week 37 - Need to Add More Activity

Monday, January 18, 2016      4 comments

More like I need to add back in the activities I was doing before I got hurt and started my long plateau. I've been using injury, busy weekends and early mornings as excuses (somewhat legitimately) but I really need to get back on track.... Read more

I Almost Beat the Bus

Wednesday, January 13, 2016      6 comments

Yesterday I had to take the bus home from work because my youngest son was at hockey practice. It's normally a two bus trip: from work to downtown, from downtown to home. If I'm lucky the second bus is the one that drops me right at my interse... Read more

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Week 36 - I Can Do This!

Sunday, January 10, 2016      11 comments

Last week should have gone so well for me. I made my steps goals every day but one. I made all my exercise goals. I stumbled a little with food, a couple of days were near the top of my range and one day was over, but it didn't show on the sc... Read more

Week 35 - No Making Resolutions

Sunday, January 03, 2016      1 comments

I don't really make New Year's Resolutions. I'm tired of making the same one and failing every time. This week however, I think I may have made one. I'm rededicating myself to weight loss and healthy living. I was doing really well and then ... Read more

Week 34 - I Really Want My Routine Back

Monday, December 28, 2015      1 comments

Hockey games, birthday parties, illness and Star Wars. My week is already full and I don't even have my exercise times planned out. Tonight we're going to see the local WHL team with my younger son's team as a team building exercise. It'l... Read more

Week 33 - Just Is

Sunday, December 20, 2015      4 comments

I set a pretty simple goal for myself last week - just track everything. I didn't manage to do it. I don't want to think of this as a failure - even though it sort of feels like one. I got busy. I was mindful of what I was eating and that's ... Read more

Week 32 - Making It Simple

Sunday, December 13, 2015      5 comments

I have one goal this week... Track everything! I've been circling around the same 2lbs for too long now. I've fallen into the trap that if I'm not perfect I don't want to worry about it at all. I've set myself to try to do too many thing... Read more

Week 31 - I Think I'm Just Going to Focus on Getting Through It

Monday, December 07, 2015      4 comments

So I hit a wall this week. I just wanted to curl up and hide from the world. Not worry about counting calories. Not worry about exercise. Just hide. I kinda did. I know I shouldn't have and I know it won't help my goals but man... this was... Read more

Week 30 - Pretty Good; Now Build on It

Sunday, November 29, 2015      1 comments

I was pretty happy with this past week. I got off my butt and actually got back to some of the activities that I been dodging prior to being injured. I slacked off near the end of the week so that's what I'm going to work on this week. It... Read more

Week 29 - Confidence Compromised

Sunday, November 22, 2015      3 comments

This has been a not very good week. My confidence is shot. I was doing so well and this week hit and I felt like I can't do anything right. I know this happens from time to time. I've been through it before but I want to get back on track. ... Read more

This is my puppy, Austin. We got him a little over a year ago and he's really what started this journey for me. I'm an early riser so I agreed to ... Read more

Week 27 - So a Day's Only 24 Hours, Right?

Sunday, November 08, 2015      1 comments

'Cause I could use a few more. Between work, kids and trying to exercise I don't have enough time to do something fun. I need to be able to do something fun. I think that's why the last few weeks have been so tough. At work we've got 2... Read more

Week 26 - Better Late Then Never

Monday, November 02, 2015      2 comments

I try to blog on Sundays. It's a routine. If I don't do it on Sundays then there's a real tendency to not do it at all. So here it is Monday and I'm trying to organize some thoughts. I still haven't gotten back on track. It could certai... Read more
