Three weeks done, 22 lbs. gone!
I am feeling pretty good this morning! It's amazing how stressed I was about today being my weigh in and picture taking day. It's like, in my head I completely discount all of the work that I've been doing and was afraid that I wouldn't have los... Read more
I can't believe it has been almost three weeks and I am still doing this! Really. This is a first for me in a long, long time. I have not given in to binge eating, despite being sick and stressed over exams. I have maintained a reasonable amount... Read more
Happy with today!
So far, it has been a productive and positive day! Not too many days can I say that at only 10:30am.
I got up and did my calisthenics workout. It was awesome. And hard. And I really didn't want to this morning. I was a little scared because... Read more
It's all in my mind...
Well, I did the C25K on Saturday and yesterday felt like crap. So, that goes on the back burner until my lungs heal a little bit more. I felt fine after the calisthenics on Thursday, so I think I will try to jump back on that tomorrow.
I th... Read more
I managed to sleep in a bit more again this morning. I woke at 6 like regular and put my running clothes in the dryer (this is how I get behind!) and used my inhalers and thought I would see how I felt when my clothes were dr... Read more
Day Twelve! (I had to count back...)
Almost two weeks down and keeping on track with food and fitness. Have had a little bobble with the bronchitis returning, but I hauled tail to the doctor pretty fast this time. I don't seem to be feeling as bad as I did a month ago. I just wante... Read more
I just wanted to say good morning to all of the incredible people I have met on here.
Yesterday was kind of a panic day for me. I have always been an all or nothing kinda gal. So, if I'm gonna do something, I have to do it all the way. Tha... Read more
Ok, ok! I'm Awake!
Ah, Wednesday! I woke to a sore throat and runny nose this morning, triggering all of my, "Oh no! I'm gonna get sick and quit triggers." In the last several years, I have learned that I don't need to push myself beyond my capability at any given... Read more
Looking at Day 9
Well, it's official. I am starting to lose the excitement of starting something new. I could actually feel the pull of the bed trying to keep me in it this morning. It was not made any easier by the fact that there was a nice gentle rain falling... Read more
Week 2 Day 1 (or Day 8!)
I am feeling proud of myself this morning. Not cocky, but definitely proud. Not only did I manage to turn in two papers yesterday, but I have maintained my eating and fitness goals for over a week. It's been a really long time since I could say ... Read more
The crazy comes out!
End of week 1. I just weighed myself and am still in shock. This is where my particular crazy comes out.
I used to be very fit. For about 8 years, fitness was more than a lifestyle for me, it was an obsession. I have found that I'm really ... Read more
Slowly but Surely
I made it through Thanksgiving without going crazy! Very relieved and proud of myself. My 15yo daughter asked me why I was starting this right before the holidays. I told her that if I start now, I will be more likely to go right back to it if I... Read more
As much better as I feel when I'm eating right (for me, low carbs, high protein, low sugar), you would think that I wouldn't have a problem continuing to eat that way. That has not been my story, however.
But! This morning, before I even o... Read more
It has been a while since I have sat with hunger pangs. My usual response to any twinge in my stomach is to find something to fill it...and not usually something good for me! As a result, I know my body's insulin response is all out of whack.

Well, the most important thing is that I made it! Even after everything I said and did yesterday, the thought STILL crossed my mind to just stay in bed. But I didn't. I had laid out my workout clothes the night before which made it a little easi... Read more
