Why don't I want to do it anymore?

Saturday, July 25, 2015      4 comments

Been a long time since my last blog entry. Things are better in some ways and not in others. My work is still very stressful. Work takes up too much of my time but there is nothing I can do about that at the moment. Our financial situation is mo... Read more

I had been feeling more positive and motivated recently. I have signed up for an indoor 60 minute triathlon. I was feeling very gung-ho to train for it. Then this week happened. My best friend's father died on Thursday. I had something wor... Read more

Struggling through a snack attack. Really want JUNK. So much of it around the office to be had today. Instead of 'white knuckling' it or giving in, I am having a hot cup of tea with almond milk in. It isn't the same but it might just do the tric... Read more

So my husband is ready to make some significant changes in his diet and activity. Which is wonderful and commendable. We have always eaten badly together. We eat out a lot. We eat comfort foods a lot. And now he is ready to make some changes. Ov... Read more

So I am working this week on trying to control my eating. I don't know if you can call it eating 'clean' but I am attempting to put boundaries around what I eat. I haven't defined exactly what I am doing but part of it includes 1. no free-f... Read more

I had 4 days of full tracking last week, with only one day that I was within calorie range. Two days of partial tracking with a lot of free for all eating (was away for those days). I get on the scale this morning. I am UP two lbs. And I get FRU... Read more

I did my second indoor duathalon this morning (run, bike, run). My time was about what I did last year. Slightly more on the track, slightly less on the bike. I had 3 other runners on the track with me. I am slow so they passed me a lot. No bi... Read more
