...I'm an emotional eater...
Nearly 2 years into maintenance and I just figure this one out. DOH! (ala Homer Simpson)
I have been having some emotional turmoil going on the last few months and on many an occasion, I have found it quit... Read more
Well the weekend was fun, but...
the whole diet and exercise thing fell rather apart. No counting and I didn't exercise much... not proud of it, it is what it is and all I can do is restart now. But better momentum is sustaining me now.
Don't know how things will go this... Read more
Musings on fitness, fatness & fandom... and self-perception...
I went a sci-fi/fantasy/gaming convention this past weekend. It was a wonderful time, so much so, that we plan to drive in Indianapolis next year for 4th of July weekend. The people were great, the event was great... but I still come away rath... Read more
Great weekend!! and not too bad a week overall...
I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend! We went to Indianapolis for a great science fiction/fantasy convention and hung out with fellow geeks, it was great!
I didn't make all of my goals 100%, but I feel I did pretty well on my firs... Read more
Pretty good week so far...
I'm not 100% on my stated goals, but I'd say I'm about 95%. That is good.
My calorie burn is almost 1100 for the week already. I have been short of 10K steps 2 days and exercise 1 day. Not too bad. Jillian Michaels vids are at 3 so far... Read more
I got off my butt (I almost said 'lazy') and exercised @ lunch. One of my 30DS installments for the week. Felt great once I was done.
I have already conquered the fruits and veggies for the day... minestrone soup is veg loaded... and I ha... Read more
New goals set!
I was going to reset my goals last night, but I was too wiped out.
I am feeling better this morning, so I have it all set to go. The only one I took out of my list from the other day was the committing to 2 shorter Jillian Michaels vids 2x... Read more
A Strong Finish to the Week!
All goals met. Plus I have blogged everyday. I feel good about that.
Tonight I came home from game early since my head is pounding and I feel like I've been hit by a Mack truck mack.
Really haven't been mentally here all day. Felt k... Read more
Just a little bit of dedication to staying on the horse...
I can already feel a difference in my body... and it's getting easier too. I added a minute to my running intervals and it was not a problem at all.
I went over calories by 15, but it could be worse. (and actually today 6/26, I looked at ... Read more
Stayed within calories and it wasn't much exercise, but it was...
Thursdays are harder since I work 10 hours and have only a 30 minute lunch. Today was even harder since I had to do another restaurant mystery shop. The calories were fine, but finding time to exercise didn't happen until after 10 pm. All I d... Read more
New REAL Goals... going back to basics...
This week hasn't started out the best... I was wiped out from drill Sunday, so I took the day off from counting and exercise... Monday I did good, stayed within calories and got on the treadmill for 45 minutes... and yesterday I pigged out again... Read more
What a week!
I actually did good eating all week, didn't go horribly over any day. Exercise fell off Friday and Saturday... but I was travelling in a car for 6 hours on Friday and then had to come home and get packed up for Reserve Drill weekend and then cu... Read more
Day 3 for exercise... calorie count... well we will see how the day pans out! I certainly plan to make it a 3/3 for 3 day!
I did Jillian's 30DS at lunch like I said.
Again, it's going back to the basics and the small goals that will g... Read more
Monday, I'm counting as day 2 in a row...
... even though I didn't stay in calories...
It's hard to explain, but suffice it to say I mystery shop a restaurant chain and sometimes literally cannot choose what I can order.
But I was in every other range. So I took a good 50 m... Read more
Restart... day 1... and a new week.
I didn't fall off the wagon until Thursday evening and I only stayed off, sort of, until today. So 3.5 days good last week and I got a great restart today.
It's not about perfection but taking one day at a time to rebuild ... inch by inch... Read more
