The double-edged sword of initial weight loss.

Saturday, August 02, 2014      4 comments

One thing I've noticed about starting the journey to healthier living is that the scale tends to be your best friend during the initial few weeks. Having just returned to this site and journey a week ago, my recent weigh-in has granted me some i... Read more

Food & Eating & Me

Wednesday, July 30, 2014      1 comments

Even though I, like most people, do like food that is horrible for you, I actually (usually) prefer eating a little better. Nights like tonight are a reminder. But backing up a little - I had today off of work so I slept breakfast... Read more

I keep forgetting...

I keep forgetting that this is an EVERY DAY battle. I do well for a few months, then stop tracking daily. Then at all. Then the old eating habits kick back in, laziness becomes easier, and eventually I end up back at my starting point. I ke... Read more

Been a while....

This year. Man, this year. It's been crazy. My job deals with tax and accounting software, so it's no surprised that January-April15 is CRAZY. This year, more so than ever. Things went badly. Very badly. Our software was a mess, trying... Read more

Slow, but steady apparently!

I haven't blogged in a while, oh well. After the business trip I had a rough patch getting back into the swing of things, but I'm now down 27 pounds total since November 10th when I started all this jazz. I consider that a win. Now for... Read more

Business trips and diets don't play well.

I had to go out of town for work for the past several day. The biggest problem with this has been that every meal was a restaurant meal. I tried to make good choices but in some places (since I had no say as to where we went) it was difficu... Read more

Very bad, no good, pretty horrible choices weekend.

After being stuck at the same weight (but still losing inches, I think) for 3+ weeks, I finally saw the scale go down on almost 5 pounds. Of course I blew that all out of the water by going to a party Friday night at midnight a... Read more

Oops I did it again!

Yep, made it to my gym night again. So far I've stayed pretty consistent. Tonight was harder than usual, I only did about half the weight stuff I normally do. I never thought I'd consider doing a vigorous 45 minutes at the gym to be slackin... Read more

Back to the gym!

After a good part of a week not going to the gym due to illness and stress, I went back tonight. And I hit it HARD! It was awesome. 33 minutes on the bike, 30 minutes of really hard lifting. I did like 300 reps totally in that 30 minutes, a... Read more

Yeah, so my body is weird. As I'm sure all ours are...

After a week of staying under my calorie cap, and working out 4+ hours a week, and gaining 5 pounds back, I was a little frustrated. Not horribly, because I figure it easily could have been muscle or water weight (as I have been drinking LOTS of... Read more

My head is being a pain in my butt.

I have had an AlmostMigraine for the last 24 hours or a migraine is trying to come on but won't commit. Tonight at the gym, while I was on the bike, it starting trying to grow into a full fledged brainkiller. I had to stop after ... Read more

These entries are all kinda sounding the same, but...

At least it's a way to keep myself accountable. My cough has subsided quite a bit and I didn't feel like I was going to pass out every time I stood up or moved too much...... So I went ahead and hit the gym. It's getting substantially ... Read more

Thanksgiving is no match for me!

Friday, November 23, 2012      3 comments

So I managed to keep my calories under target on Thanksgiving, and that included a slice of pumpkin pie, a cookie, and a little bit of ice cream. And I woke up today .6 pounds lighter, so a total of 14 pounds down since I started this up again. ... Read more

Rough night for cardio......

Well, last night I did 35 minutes on the bike without much of a problem. Tonight I decided to try something different, so I hopped on an elliptical thingy. I don't like the elliptical thingy. I felt motion sick after a few minutes, and... Read more

Still not feeling well, but I threw caution to the wind...

and went to the gym anyway. I ate more calories today than I have since I started. I'm still within my Spark-appointed calorie range (which I feel is a bit high, but we'll see) and I also worked out harder than I have yet. In spite of... Read more
