Day 79 - Seriously cheated all weekend

Monday, May 19, 2008      4 comments

This weekend was tough for me and showed me that I do not have my habits completely under control. I baked Beth's birthday cake. And even though I used a Cook's Illustrated reduced fat/calorie cake recipe (which was great BTW), I made a chocol... Read more

Day 77 - Love my treadmill, and Beth's birthday cake carousel

Saturday, May 17, 2008      0 comments

For the last two nights I've been exhausted. I didn't feel like working out. On Thursday night I got a late start so I decided to just do about 45 mins. But my show wasn't over so I told myself I'd just keep going to the end of the show. But... Read more

Day 76 - Beth's birthday tomorrow, did sooo much today!

Friday, May 16, 2008      1 comments

I'm exhausted. Today started with a trip to the Dr with my daughter for her 2 yr appt. The little trooper got a Hepatitis A shot with only a serious lower lip pout, no cry. I was impressed. Boy, she didn't like the nurse much though! LOL! ... Read more

Day 74 - 'New' pants & Why am I so hard on myself?

Wednesday, May 14, 2008      3 comments

Here is the latest photo I took last night. I really was sucking in my stomach in both photos, not just the one on the right. I always see those before and after shots in magazines where it's obvious that part of the "loss" was the person s... Read more

Day 73 - It's All About the Exercise! (retitled)

Tuesday, May 13, 2008      3 comments

For the last few days I've been pulling clothes out of my closet that didn't fit a few months ago. It's an amazing feeling. I'm wearing a blue fitted ski sweater today (it's been cold in So Cal the last few days - I'm tired of freezing!) I tri... Read more

Day 71 - Day after my offical weigh-in & update on step-mother

Sunday, May 11, 2008      3 comments

Well, apparently yesterday's low weight loss (0.4 lb) wasn't real. My weight this morning was MUCH lower than the 179.4 I weighed yesterday. Today it was 176.x (I don't remember what 'x' was). Kind of annoying since it did have a small effect... Read more

Day 70 - Putting Mothers Day in Perspective

Saturday, May 10, 2008      0 comments

Last night I had a serious headache, so I skipped the treadmill and working out. I went to be early and got a very good night's sleep. I wasn't thrilled with my weigh in this morning. It was just 179.4. But at least that's still lower than l... Read more

Day 67 - State of the Diet Address

Wednesday, May 07, 2008      3 comments

I'm doing really well. But I still don't know what the catalyst was this time. I guess if I knew that I could bottle it, sell it, and become rich. What matters is that I'm exercising, watching what I eat, keeping it nutritious, and steadily l... Read more

Day 65 - Tired! & Cholesterol Results

Monday, May 05, 2008      2 comments

I blew it for sleep last night. I finished cleaning at 10 pm and then I got on the computer. I was on the web site for my high school's 20 yr reunion. More and more people are updating their profiles with history and photos. I got totally su... Read more

Day 64 - Speed BLOG

Sunday, May 04, 2008      2 comments

Fast BLOG, no time. Must do dishes, garbage, and clean house. Decided since house is trashed I'll clean on Sunday nights instead of exercise. Will exercise the other 6 nights. Went to San Diego Wild Animal Park today with kids. Great ex... Read more

Day 63 - How did that happen?

Saturday, May 03, 2008      1 comments

As I walked toward the scale this morning I had no idea what it was going to tell me. Had I gained weight due to my recent slacking and eating Thai food last night? Had I stayed the same as last week or lost very little? Or was it possible fo... Read more

Day 61 - Struggling, but overcoming

Thursday, May 01, 2008      3 comments

I've been struggling lately. I feel like I've been going through the motions. But this is where my strict adherence to exercise and food in the beginning is paying off. Even when I'm "cheating" lately, it still hasn't been bad. My cheating... Read more

Day 57 - The 181 is official

Sunday, April 27, 2008      0 comments

The 181 I saw on the scale a few days ago became official yesterday. I didn't get my photo taken last night because I was exhausted and it was either take my photo or get my exercise in. I chose my exercise. My son is going through a stage wh... Read more
