337 Days to a Better Me

Saturday, July 28, 2012      3 comments

I'm feeling very proud of myself. I've been eating right and exercising for four weeks now. I've lost 8 pounds and am feeling stronger when I work out. My clothes aren't particularly loose, but I think that's because a lot of them were a size to... Read more

349 Days to a Better Me

Tuesday, July 17, 2012      3 comments

So it's been a couple of weeks, and I am doing pretty well. I'm keeping up on exercise and working hard at making good food choices. I am loving the extra calories that I'm allowed because my goal is so far out. For example, I entered my calorie... Read more

365 Days to a Better Me

Saturday, July 07, 2012      3 comments

So I've been surfing a lot on the Pinterest website, and I kept seeing the quote "A year from now you'll wish you started today," of course accompanied by pictures of skinny, healthy people. And it just kind of stuck with me. I keep trying to ge... Read more

Italy and the Two Evil Pounds

Saturday, May 14, 2011      2 comments

So I know I've mentioned on here a time or two that I'm planning to go to Italy, but haven't said much else. So here's the lowdown. This summer I will be spending two weeks in Italy. It's a tour group and we travel to 7 different cities. I don't... Read more

I finally get to post a positive blog entry again! I have lost 10 pounds this month! Yippee! The sad part is that it wasn't that hard. All I did was make some better food choices. Not great food choices, mind you. I still went over my ... Read more

Found the Bandwagon

Wednesday, November 24, 2010      2 comments

I am so sick of posting blogs that say I'm starting again, but here I am, starting again. I got off to a good start in September, but couldn't sustain it. So I'm back. I'm working on NOT being motivated. I know that sounds weird, but I read... Read more

Starting Over

Monday, September 06, 2010      2 comments

I reset my weight loss ticker today. I felt like it was fibbing to start from the weight I let myself get up to in 2009. I've lost 4.4 pounds this week (yay!) and I want to start taking credit for the work I am currently doing instead of saying ... Read more

Weekly Progress

Sunday, May 16, 2010      3 comments

So I lost weight this week. Not through any effort on my part. It was just a crazy random happenstance. Probably didn't hurt that I was sick last weekend and only had 2 pieces of toast on Sunday. A lot of calories also left my body very quickly.... Read more

That's right, people! Today is International Feel Sorry For Yourself Day! (No, it's not real. It's an internet thing. But I don't care!) So I plan to whine profusely! About how crappy everything is. Oh woe is me! What? What do you mean... Read more

Dumped on Email

Saturday, April 24, 2010      3 comments

Tonight, my "best friend" dumped me by email. I've been trying to call her for weeks and she won't take my calls or call me back. She sent a super long email telling me why it is all my fault that she doesn't want to be my friend anymore. I don'... Read more

Unhappy Thoughts

Sunday, February 28, 2010      6 comments

Okay people. You are getting the brunt of it tonight. If you're not a fan of weeping, wailing, and pity-parties, stop reading now. Really, I won't be offended. Go read a feel-good blog somewhere. You are not going to find any warm fuzzies on thi... Read more

For a challenge on one of my Spark Teams, I'm supposed to write about who inspires me and why. This is a really tough question for me. I can't pinpoint one person who I look to for inspiration. There are lots of people out there with great stori... Read more

Wednesday, July 15, 2009      0 comments

I did this run last Sunday. I arranged to go with a friend, since it was so nice to run with my Sister-in-Law a few weeks ago. My friend had a baby in January, and is getting back to her pre-baby weight. She has been a runner for a long time, bu... Read more

C25K: Week 9, Day 1

Friday, July 10, 2009      0 comments

I did my first 30 minute run. It is truly amazing to me that I am physically able to run for that long. Unfortunately, I again experienced back pain when I started out. I think it is something I will have to deal with off and on for the rest of ... Read more

I'm doing all the days today to try and catch up. I did Day 1 when I was staying at my mom's. We were heading out for the cruise that day so i did my run in the morning. She lives in a super hilly area, so it was a challenge to do this one... Read more
