Nice few days off...

Monday, November 02, 2015      2 comments

I have been working so much since September of last year, I have hardly had more than 3 days at a stretch off. I had about 5 days off in April and a week in March. So when my mom in law came to visit I took some time off, especially because my... Read more

My first official weigh in was today... and I'm down 1.8 lbs. This is super exciting for me, it just reinforces everything that I'm doing. It's pretty exciting considering the fact that I'm approaching this weight loss with baby steps. Just l... Read more

Still batting 1.000 on Tuesday!

Tuesday, October 20, 2015      1 comments

I'm super happy, my body is adjusting the lowered amount of calories really well. The gradual stepdown is working well, and it has really helped me to fight my nemesis of the evening snackies. I am getting better at reminding myself that I'm no... Read more

Thursday, October 15, 2015      2 comments

Okay, so lost track of my food tracking today... Not going to sweat it. I'll just get in a good treadmill run tonight. So it won't be a complete loss. I can do this and one imperfect day doesn't negate a week and a half of progress. Last week ... Read more

I vs. You Can Do This/Honesty

Thursday, October 15, 2015      1 comments

I had an interesting insight on I vs. You in my recycled mantra. For some reason, telling myself "You can do this" has more power than "I can do this." I wonder why that is. Somehow externalities the words and redirecting them AT my own self has... Read more

I didn't run tonight... but I did some movement stuff and a little bit of weight stuff in the living room. The point right now isn't burning a ton of calories... it's about re-establishing the exercise habit. The healthy baby steps will lead t... Read more
