Nothing to report today. Didn't do treadmill or strength training today. Counted my trudge up the hill this morning to ds' bus stop. Off to bed so I can hit the treadmill in the morning.... Read more
Day three

It was a day-on-the-go today. Not a super "sparky" day, but I did get a mini-meal at McDs instead of a value meal! At least I was trying to be a little more conscious of my choice. Since the day has been so crazy, I'm going to have to get... Read more

35 minutes on the treadmill at an average of 3mph. Meeting my exercise goals for time, but not calories burned. I'm not sure how to go about that. I think for now I just need to focus on the consistency of daily exercise.... Read more

...but you can't move forward without moving forward, right? Did 30 minutes on the treadmill, averaging just over 3 mph. Dh was out on a bike ride, and I was home with the kids, so I figured I'd use the time productively. I hate exercisin... Read more

I didn't realize how long it had been since I last blogged here. As of last Friday, I am down 12.5lbs since I first started. I had gained the weigh-in before, and haven't been tracking anything for the past couple of weeks. This morning I was... Read more

I'm back on my home turf, and not a moment too soon! The good news is that I weighed myself this morning, and I'm down 1.5lbs from my last weigh-in! Slow and steady. I think this is so much better for me than when I did points with WW and was... Read more
Still losing

Just a quick update: I started phase 2 this week. So far it's no different from what I was doing in fast break, since I was already tracking my food. One thing I'm trying to make sure that I do is journal everything on days when I'm not h... Read more

I cancelled my appointment to go tour the club at the last minute yesterday. I got anxious and kind of freaked out. I was making a million excuses for why that gym wouldn't work for me - and with that attitude it most certainly wouldn't. So I... Read more

Today is day three of birthday parties. Insane. Dd's bday is today, but we took her out to dinner last night instead. She chose Olive Garden (her favorite restaurant) and had fettucine alfredo and breadsticks for dinner. She has a TON of... Read more

We had my dd's bday party today, which naturally included a cake. I planned for the cake in my day (figured it would be high in calories, fat, and carbs), and had a "fake egg scramble" for breakfast (1/4c. egg substitute w/ 1Tbsp. cheese, serve... Read more

I was reading this SparkPeople article this morning, about the truths and misconceptions associated with eating, and this one really stuck out to me: "3. To lose weight you must maintain a calorie deficit O v e r T i m e. Your body d... Read more

Yesterday I received Fast Break strategy #2: Finding the Time. Last night I unexpectedly found myself waiting three hours for my sister and nephew to finish up in urgent care (a raging ear infection - I think it's number 11 or something in ... Read more
