I needed a pick me up
Work has not been fun this week. I chaired a meeting yesterday that was supposed to go really well as I had good news for people and it didn't go well at all. Then I walked in and had someone chew me out this morning because she feels I've bee... Read more
Having a hard time lately
I've been hurting again. I think I angered my SI joint last week and it was more inflamed than usual. I've been having trouble sleeping because of the pain. I did take some of my major pain killers, but they just treat the pain, not the infla... Read more
Getting a grill for christmas :)
My MIL is getting me a grill for Christmas. I've been wanting one for years, but my husband kept putting it off because he couldn't decide what type he wanted. I just wanted a traditional charcoal grill, didn't need to be anything fancy. And ... Read more
Slipped a bit, but pushing back
Thanksgiving really did me in, I stopped tracking and stopped exercising. I only gained back 1.5 lbs, so I know I can get back on track. But its frustrating to go through this again. I know I'm making progress but sometimes it does feel like ... Read more
Noticing small habits sticking :)
Sometimes I'll only pack a protein for lunch and go to the cafeteria to buy veggies to round it out. This used to be a struggle as I would look at the French fries and hear them calling my name.
It felt really good to be in the check out l... Read more

Lapse, accountability and moving on
I lapsed. Because I lapsed, I will likely not meet my goal weight loss for Nov. 8th. But I am holding myself accountable and looking at why I lapsed. Mostly, it was due to stress. That is still my main trigger that sets me back. But that is... Read more
Final week push
I'm not expecting a weight loss for my weigh in tomorrow. In fact, based on my week, I wouldn't be surprised to be a bit up.
Fall challenge ends on Nov. 8th. So next week will be my final push. I WILL stay within my calorie goal and exer... Read more
Stressed for time
So I know I recently posted on another blog about this same issue, saying I'm hopeful it will all come together. But I need to vent.
I can't find the time to do everything. I'm lucky, my work is structured so that I can do some strength t... Read more
New pants today
Since my son and I were both feeling better, and home from work/school, I finally got to my goodwill shop. I have two pairs of pants that needed to be replaced, and I love shopping at my goodwill because I'm still on my weight loss journey, so ... Read more
Feeling better today
Today is a better day. I still had a crazy morning but I'm wearing an outfit that looks much better on me since I've lost the weight. So that is a pick me up. And it is a beautiful fall day outside, so it will be a great day for taking a walk... Read more
I gotta keep pushing through
I'm struggling. All the positive signs are there, my clothes fit better, I'm sleeping better, my joints are starting to feel better.
But I'm tired. This is a very busy time for my husband, he is a professor and also a musician, so he is o... Read more
Slipping a little
I didn't stay within my calorie goal this past weekend. Mostly it was stress. My mother-in-law was here and that is never a good time. I did do cardio most days, so I didn't completely fall off the wagon. Yesterday was the exception but I wa... Read more
Hanging in there
This weekend was another off weekend because I had tons of stuff to do and didn't plan time for exercise. However, I was still active. Friday my son's class went to the pumpkin patch, so there was a lot of walking going on. Saturday and Sunda... Read more
