Hello again! I'm back.

Thursday, June 12, 2014      2 comments

It's been awhile. And so much has changed (mostly for the better!). Here's the rundown: 1) Last summer, I met a guy who turned out to be one of the most amazing people I've ever met. We'll be celebrating our one year anniversary on June 30t... Read more

The hardest part about starting over...

Tuesday, June 04, 2013      2 comments realizing how out of shape you've really become. When I stopped working out on a daily basis back in December 2011/January 2012, I was in pretty good shape. Not about to run a marathon or anything, but I was getting stronger and had m... Read more

2 Years Later

Saturday, June 01, 2013      2 comments

2 years ago, I got serious about losing weight in a healthy way. I had gained 15 pounds in about 6 months following a few traumatic things happening and when you're only 5'4, 15 lbs makes a difference. So I signed up on Sparkpeople, did it half ... Read more

Good thing I walk a lot...

Thursday, May 09, 2013      3 comments

I'm PMSing so naturally want to consume entire grocery stores in a single swallow. So far I've been able to keep it better under control than in previous months but I still haven't stayed within my calorie limit the past 2 days. Luckily, I've b... Read more

What I've Been Up To

Sunday, May 05, 2013      2 comments

I haven't written a blog since mid January and up until about a week or so again, was also infrequent with tracking food. So what have I been up to the past few months? Basically the winter kicked my ass. I tend to get very hibernate-y when... Read more

Goals for the week plus falling in love with a new food

Monday, January 21, 2013      0 comments

This weekend wasn't the greatest in terms of eating clean but I'm not stressing! I am PMSing plus had family/friend time PLUS it was my weekend off so I had lots of time and opportunity to not stick to my clean eating. Tomorrow is another day th... Read more

Moving along

Friday, January 18, 2013      1 comments

This week at weigh in, I was down to 146.8 which is a little over a pound from the last time I weighed in. I was super pumped to see the numbers going down and it was definitely a motivator. I've had a small bump in the road--I went out to... Read more

Week 2 in the bag

Sunday, January 13, 2013      3 comments

Week 2 didn't go as well as week 1. At all. I ate a lot more processed food, I didn't exercise as much as I would have liked, and I doubt my scale has moved down at all. But I have made some progress in other areas. I tracked my food every day b... Read more

Not doing so well mentally or food-wise

Monday, January 07, 2013      1 comments

Last week I did pretty good. I was perfect all week, food wise, until Friday. I went over my calorie range a little bit Friday and Saturday and ALOT over my calorie range on Sunday. I had actually weighed myself Sunday morning and I was down, bu... Read more

Round 2 Day 3 Check in

Thursday, January 03, 2013      0 comments

Another successful day! I stayed within all my ranges and got some walking in (2 miles). Not exactly the heavy cardio that I was used to do before but I'm majorly sore from yesterday's strength training and don't want to over do it. My ... Read more

Round 2 Day 2

Wednesday, January 02, 2013      0 comments

Yesterday I did pretty well. I stayed within all my ranges and the most processed thing that I ate was a granola bar (which was hiding in my cupboard unbeknownst to me). I didn't work out because I was still getting over a stomach bug that I had... Read more

And let's try that one again.

Tuesday, January 01, 2013      3 comments

I've been pretty bad this past...10 months? 12 months? At the start of 2012, I had been well on my way to my goal weight of 120-125. I had lost 25 pounds (starting weight was 165) and, at my lightest, was 139--the first time I had been in the 13... Read more

First week back almost complete!

Saturday, October 06, 2012      2 comments

Today is day 6 of me getting back into the Sparking groove. I've done pretty well this week and the fact that it seemed easy to get back into the swing of things is super encouraging to me. I stayed in my calorie range most days and had a calori... Read more

10/1/12 First day back went swimmingly

Tuesday, October 02, 2012      5 comments

So Monday was my first day back in the swing of thing, mainly tracking food and not eating insane amounts of junk as I've been doing the past few months. And I actually stayed in range! I can't remember the last time I could say that. Ok, actual... Read more

What happens when you let your guard down

Monday, October 01, 2012      8 comments

I've basically been MIA for the past....way too many months, besides tracking exercise. I pretty much stopped tracking my food for a number of reasons (depression, being satisfied with my progress, simply becoming sick of having to track every.s... Read more
