What can I say.... still trying...
So, my husband has been fighting the good fight with me the last month or so. I think we are pretty equal on food and exercise. Honestly, he is probably doing a little better. By the way- 21 days does NOT make a habit. ;0) Anyway, we were watch... Read more
21 days done!
The "changing my eating habits" 21 days is done! I did it! Yay! I have now started my 21 days to make exercise a habit. This part is always harder for me. I am only 3 days in. Fingers crossed.... Read more
I only have 4 more days of my first 21 days of forming my new habit. My eating should be under control. It hasn't been that hard, but I learned a lot last year to help me succeed. My next 21 days will be forming the habit of exercise. My fitbit ... Read more
Ummmm, I would like to say I didn't eat a million calories from things I should have avoided but I cannot. So why the yay? I didn't gain any weight! Did I get to where I wanted to be? Well, no but I didn't move any further away from it either. I... Read more
Ahhhh, cooking Christmas treats for friends.
I always enjoy it, but then I have to taste everything to make sure it came out ok. Cookies and cream fudge, mini- s'mores treats, mint/chocolate bark, fudge, and baked toffee make up the list this year. It took me two days, so my over indulgenc... Read more
So I haven't blogged in a week. What does that mean...you guessed it- didn't do very well. I only totally lost it on 1 day but ugh! I have been back on track since Monday trying to undo the damage from that one day gone wrong. I hope I learned m... Read more
I am done with 7 days! Woo whoo! I lost more than I thought, I hope it keeps going, a little worried about that. But on the now side- I read somewhere that 1 lb of extra body weight is equal to approx. 4 lbs of pressure on your joints. I tooK of... Read more
This is my seventh day. Phew, I almost made it, it is all down hill from here. (fingers crossed) The nights have been hard, I get snacky, but sipping on an iced coffee seems to help it pass. I know I am getting a little ahead of myself, after al... Read more
The scale is being too kind. I am not knocking it and please don't take it back, but wow! 5 days down and a few pounds gone. (I am not going to jinx it with how many) Yesterday went well until last night, I was snacky but I made it through- woo ... Read more
3 days down and 27 to go...I am on a roll. A short roll but it is going to get longer-I promise! The scale is being kind, I know it is just water weight but it is very motivating. I really want to see how much I can lose on 30 days. I really wan... Read more
Ok, so I know it has only been 2 days since I recommitted to this journey but I am doing well. I figure if I check in more often, hold myself accountable, then maybe I will make it this time. I have not gone over my calories, exercised, and not... Read more
Starting again...apparently that is my mantra....ugh!
But it is not going to be anymore, I say with fingers crossed. I backslid when my daughter went back to school but I am not going to do that again. I am going to move progressively forward-no more messing around. Which, by the way, I have been d... Read more
How it's going...
So, the Triple P plan is still in effect. We have had to tweak the calories down (1350) because I just wasn't losing on the higher amount (1500/1400). What a difference 50 calories a day can make! But starting at the higher calories taught me t... Read more
Just a little update as to how the triple P lifestyle is going. I rocked the first week and earned a fabulous treat-a water boiler/heater for my tea obsession. ... Read more
The triple "P" plan
My daughter, whose name starts with P made me a "Perfect Plan" (hence the triple P's) So, here are the rules:
1500 calories / day
200 bonus calories/ week to use as needed
Exercise at least 4 days/ week for 45 minutes
Must have at least ... Read more
