I had been feeling very crazy, just not myself the last month or so. A lot of it was work stress, and some of it was jean size stress, and the rest of it was just....well, I don't know. I just wasn't very happy. So I had some time off from work,... Read more
This is hard.
I mean, really hard. It's so much easier to just have what everyone else is having instead of explaining why you are eating a salad. It's easier to just order what sounds good, instead of having to count calories, and figure out the healthiest c... Read more
Weekends are killing me...
Seriously, I am probably undoing all the good I do for myself during the week on the weekend. The only good thing I did this weekend was eat a salad every day. So, I guess that's something. I am trying to eat fruits/veggies at every meal and it'... Read more
Jolly Holiday Week 1
Everyone always says that you shouldn't try to lose weight over the holidays, to wait until the New Year and make it your resolution. But here's my thought for those people: Why would I wait to start treating myself better until next year when I... Read more
Crazy Crazy Life
Whew. The last week has been the most stressful, busy, crazy week of my life. Doctor appointments that lasted 4.5 hours, overtime at work, I locked my keys in my car one day, we had a visit at work from people from Corporate, and we are dealing ... Read more
I ate a 680 calorie sandwich today. I had thought, that since there was lean meat, plenty of veggies and just a bit of feta and that it was on a pita that it would be fine. 680 calories is not fine. When will restauants get wise to the fact that... Read more
Such a thing
Do you think that other people have perfect weight loss journeys? I find myself thinking a lot, 'well other people probably don't have this problem.' 'Other people probably do this every day, without messing up'. Who is this "Other people" and w... Read more
A crazy week
Thank goodness last week is over! I had the MOST stressful week, with inventory at my work, which went so badly that everyone in the store was stressed out and stomping around yelling. :/ And then my mother had surgery, after which we got some b... Read more
It's a depressing day when you decide to faithfully enter every single bite you took and you know that what you input was correct and you see that you've gone over your calories every day for the past week.
And that, Ladies and Gentlemen, ... Read more
I'm sorry but 100 degree weather is just not cool. hehe. I didn't even mean to do that. :) But seriously. It makes me feel exhausted, just doing my normal routine that it's hard to find the motivation to workout. Yesterday was a little cooler an... Read more
Remember how I was a big, whiny crybaby last post? I was under a lot of stress. A LOTTTTT of stress. And those things are still there in my life. But do you know what I did? I pulled on my big girl panties and told somebody about how I was feeli... Read more
So. My family got some bad news this week. And it's completely thrown me through a loop. I've eaten pizza, and nachos and other bad food. And I haven't worked out since Monday? I have to weigh in tomorrow, for my Summer challenge, and I just don... Read more
Kinda Proud of Myself
I was having a heck of a time staying motivated and focused at the beginning of the week. But I pushed through, kept making small healthy choices for myself. And I feel GREAT today! :) I just got done doing some yoga, which always makes me feel ... Read more
I'm Feeling the Burn...
Burned out, that is. :/ I don't know what's going on this week but I have the energy of a slug. I haven't changed my eating habits, so I'm sure that's not it. I have had a messed up weekend, and didn't fit in all the exercise I wanted too. Mayb... Read more
About that long trip...
We didn't end up taking it. Instead, on Saturday we went to the movies where I ate popcorn and drank a regular pop which I never drink, but for some reason I didn't even think to ask for diet? That's gotta stop real quick. I don't feel bad about... Read more
