I really need to get back on track!
Sooo, as of June I had lost 100lbs. June marked the completion of a full year of change. I kept going and dropped a few more pounds, fitness and eating were going well. And then, I broke a toe, even that didn't slow me down. I kept up with runni... Read more
Woohoo! Movement again!
So, last week I wrote about being sort of stuck. This week I tried really hard to track and to up my exertion while exercising. I ran 5-7k every other day and hit the gym every day almost.
Well, that plus the lack of hormonal bloating pushed ... Read more
10 months in at Sparkpeople
I know I have made some very big accomplishments but staring at the ounces I have lost over the last couple of weeks has me a little annoyed.
You see, just ounces are actually all I should have lost. I have been slack about tracking, I misse... Read more
I love Spring!
I feel so alive! I managed to get a bit of biking in last week. It was a bit cool and a bit windy but so wonderful to exercise outside!
I am approaching 85lbs lost and it has me hopeful that one day I may actually be in the "healthy weight" ca... Read more
I think I need to eat more.....
I can't figure out how to make my spark profile recalculate my caloric needs. I know how to change the number of calories to burn etc. It has occurred to me that my second job is very active. I am a night time stock person so I am constantly on... Read more
I bought some Goal pants!
I was at Costco yesterday and saw a cute pair of pants that roll up into Capris. I decided to buy them in a size 12 with the commitment to fit into them in time for capri weather. Well, I tried them on last night and they fit, and fit well with ... Read more
Back into routine
So, I seem to be settling back into routine. The healthy active routine, not the injured and forced to be lazy routine!
Last week I watched the scale slowly rise. I knew it was in response to my hormones and a certain visitor I was expecting ... Read more
It's been a rough start to the year.
I injured my back on January 1st. Apparently I dislocated my pelvis. It has been a very painful journey but I think I may be ready to hit the gym again for some gentle exercise. I was really worried about the outcome of my injury weight wise. I ... Read more
I came prepared to get back on the wagon
As it turns out, I was on it all along. I guess perhaps the journey isn't as obviously bumpy as it used to be!
I thought my tumble off of the wagon would happen when I went on vacation but I managed to keep focused. I exercised plenty and did... Read more
I have been battling something all week. It hasn't won yet, I am still holding it off.
In a way I wish it would either win or move on! I have scaled back on the exercise a bit and that seems to have given me the upper hand. I need to kick t... Read more
an eight month plan!
I am an organizer by nature! The beginning changes have spiralled. At first it was a plan to become healthier, that turned into a plan to take back my life. I wanted to back away from all of the stress. It was work related stress. A job that wa... Read more
I am stronger than I give myself credit for!
So, about 6 weeks ago I started exercising at a gym, with a personal trainer. Prior to that I have been swimming, biking, walking, and some running. I had lost 30lbs in just three months.
Back to the trainer, I have found a wonderful fit. I am... Read more
I can't believe I made it! In just under 17 weeks I have lost 41lbs.
My clothes do not fit and they are starting to look ridiculous with a belt! I think I may go buy a pair or two this week-end.
My goal was to be 200lbs by October 6th so I a... Read more
Flu last week, and now a cold this week
I can't wait to feel better! I have maintained the 2lb loss I experienced last week but haven't managed to move any weight this week.
Usually when the kids go back to school we get a cold or virus that goes along with it--this year it just se... Read more
