Homemade Lean Cuisines
I've decided to stop spending my money on lean cuisines and make my own that have less preservatives and are cheaper! I didn't get very creative this first go round, but made 8 servings of turkey chili with a side of veggies, and 8 servings of c... Read more
I can't seem to stick with it...
Well after my last restart, my camping trip completely derailed me and I've been eating like crap. I gained back 5 of the 10lbs I lost. Time to start over....again.... here are my goals:
1. Log in every day, and track ALL food every day
2... Read more
Watching the lbs melt away...
I dropped 8lbs in a week! It's the week 1 (restart) success. I'm sure this week won't be as big, but I'm still happy. This will have its challenges. We are camping Thurs-Sun, which means big meals that aren't super healthy. My goal is to stay ac... Read more
Time to start over again
In the past 3 months I've managed to put on 20lbs....granted in this time I was doing 2 people's jobs for 6 weeks of it, and we unexpectedly sold our condo and bought a house, so my eating habits and exercise took a backburner to life. As of Mon... Read more
So I kind of took a week long hiatus from eating healthy, but I'm back now. Up a couple pounds and ready to get focused again. Nothing in particular derailed me, I just wasn't focused. I have 3 weeks until we go on our mini vaca, so going to try... Read more
New Clothes & Monday
This weekend (and Friday) I didn't exactly stay on track, I'm the same weight as last Monday, so hopefully I can make forward progress. I haven't lost anything in about 2 weeks now. I know most of it is me not being disciplined on weekends, and ... Read more
Hungry Hungry Hippo
I am sooo hungry today. Just one of those days I think, not particular reason. I've stayed on track but seriously want to go out and buy a big lunch and stuff my face. I've stayed on track so far though. And when I logged onto SP the ad that sho... Read more
What's for dinner?
After work today my son and I will be going to visit my grandmother. By the time we're done there, it'll be dinner time, so I'm trying to determine what we can pick up to take home for a healthy dinner that's quick and easy. So far my best idea ... Read more
The day is going pretty good so far. I'm staying on track with my eating. Not getting out for a walk today because it's raining and blowing 20mph outside. Hubby and my son are both sick with a nasty cold, so I'm trying to boost vitamin C in hope... Read more
Happy Leap Day!
This weekend I ate junk pretty much the entire weekend. Or when I did eat healthy, I overate. So the scale is up (again) today. Mostly water weight I'm sure. Back on track today though. I need to do better on staying on tr... Read more
Hooray for the weekend! We are going to a birthday party at a bar this evening, so I've been banking calories for tonight in hopes I will stay close to my range. I figure right now I can have a reasonable dinner and 2 drinks and be at the top of... Read more
I'm kind of feeling discouraged today. Not sure why. The scale is still moving downward, just not as fast as I want to I suppose, but any progress is good progress, so I just need to get over myself. I'm still sticking with eating right today, e... Read more
Halfway through the week! The scale dropped this morning too, so I am well on my way to being back on track. I have 4lbs until I am back at where I was before Christmas, then I can start making forward progress again. Those 4lbs make a big diffe... Read more
Today is going ok so far. I'm on track with my calories, and took a 10 min stroll at lunch. Not the longest walk, but I used the rest of lunch to eat. :-) Will probably make salad for dinner, just need to decide what kind. We bought a Costco pac... Read more
Well the good news is Friday I actually stayed within my calorie range, even with going to the party at the dessert place. I only had a cupcake, and had enough calories left to have a sandwich later in the evening for some real food.
