So, sometime during last summer I lost my way. I fell off program, and by the fall term I had fallen off healthy eating almost completely. I never got quite as bad as I used to be (no family bags of doritos with tubs of sour cream), but I wasn't... Read more
Back on track
The last couple of weeks I have been a bit off track. I didn't fall entirely off plan, but I haven't really been on plan either, and it's showed in the fact that my numbers haven't really changed at all for a couple weeks. I've basically just be... Read more
That's right, I've made it to Onderland! I weighed in today at 198.2! I honestly don't have much to say about, because I'm still a bit in shock about it. I knew it was coming, but now it's here. It's almost a bit surreal, like even though I knew... Read more
Get out of the way, Life...
It seems like my life just keeps getting in the way of me living this week. Getting behind in school, then getting sick and thus more behind, and all the stress and anxiety those have caused means that this has been a rough week for me.
I h... Read more
I am Overweight
I am "overweight."
Now, normally this sounds like a negative statement. But compare it to the following:
I am "obese."
The first sentence sounds a lot better, doesn't it?
Saying I am "overweight" sounds pretty amazing to me ... Read more
I managed to clock in a 0.8 pound gain this week (thanks Aunt Flo
). But I know it's gonna be gone by next... Read more
Rainy this morning, which meant that for the first time the hubby and I did our morning jog using the treadmills in our apartment complex's gym. I was used to the river path, so it was definitely different, but once I got used to the treadmill i... Read more
Let's keep on keepin' on... on plan, that is
Back on plan, and it's time to keep on pushing that number on the scale (and those numbers on the measuring tape) down. Official weigh in was 206.6 this morning, and Onderland is so close. I'm pretty happy because it looks like I'll make my goal... Read more
My in-laws came into town last Thursday and stayed through the weekend. They are great, and it was a nice visit, but still pretty stressful. It was a bit hard to stay on plan over the weekend.
We went out on Saturday to a vineyard, where w... Read more
C25k week 2 and hobo pants
Today I finally managed to make through all six 90 second jogging intervals that are part of the c25k program in week 2. The first time I tried it I could only do four of them for the whole 90 seconds. The second time I managed five. Third time'... Read more
I weighed in this morning at 209.8. So I'm now under 210, and feeling pretty good about that. Went out for a jog again this morning with the hubby. He wasn't feeling well, so originally we were just going to walk, but I was feeling pumped up, so... Read more
Making it feel real
I've lost over 20 pounds at this point. 22.4 pounds, to be exact. But sometimes it doesn't feel like anything has actually changed. It feels like I still have so far to go, and the fact that I'm still technically obese (not overweight, but actua... Read more
Second C25k Down
Hubby and I did the second jogging session of the couch to 5k program this morning. It was even harder than the first session because my muscles were still complaining about what I did to them on Thursday. But I still did it, and I feel pretty g... Read more
4 weeks down
Wow, I can't believe it's been four weeks now and I've pretty much stayed on plan. I had an off day this past Tuesday because Aunt Flo made me feel a bit miserable, and all I wanted was toast. But still, this is probably the longest that I've ev... Read more
"I miss bread"
That's what I told my husband yesterday: "I miss bread."
This past week and a half has been really stressful for me. I was feeling very down, and school has just been piling more and more on top of me. I felt like I couldn't handle it all, ... Read more
