Day 1: Running gets under my skin

Tuesday, October 06, 2015      1 comments

I dunno. I think I may have a problem. This afternoon I started thinking about my evening run. I was actually looking forward to it, which isn't like me. Usually I have to kind of fight with myself to get off the couch and get down to busin... Read more

Day 1: This is what I want to remember

Monday, October 05, 2015      2 comments

THIS feeling, right now. This feeling of accomplishment, of victory. This feeling of endorphins lighting up my brain. THIS perfect storm of fatigue and triumph, all rolled into one. Eight days ago I ran a miraculous (to me) two miles -- muc... Read more

Day 1: Personal best distance

Sunday, September 27, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday was filled with all kinds of crazy drama. I won't go into details, other than to say The Mister lacerated his thumb pretty seriously, and I had to take him to urgent care for stitches. And that was just one nutty thing that happened. ... Read more

Day 1: Almost made it

Friday, September 25, 2015      2 comments

Earlier today I posted how weak I was feeling about food choices. I am thankful to report I did make it through the afternoon all right (thanks in large part to the supportive comments on the last post!), but I did fall down a little tonight. ... Read more

Day 1: Pausing a moment to regain control

Friday, September 25, 2015      4 comments

It's Friday afternoon, and I'm feeling a little weary. I still have some work to plow through, and then I have a zillion household tasks to complete before my sister arrives tomorrow from out-of-state. Even though I could be doing something... Read more

Day 1: Another day, another victory

Thursday, September 24, 2015      4 comments

I felt very nervous when I got up this morning because in the past I have been able to put together three days of healthy habits, and then it all fell apart. I was afraid that might happen today, too. But I am pleased to report it did not. ... Read more

Day 1: Three days in a row

Thursday, September 24, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday was another good food day. I came in right on target and did not succumb to any temptations. As I said Tuesday, I am being much more mindful of my emotional state when the urge to binge hits me. I don't even have to be aware of th... Read more

Day 1: Better than yesterday

Tuesday, September 22, 2015      2 comments

My experience today goes to show how effective keeping a journal or blog can be. After writing down my diet "rules" yesterday, I was able to keep them top-of-mind today -- and that really helped! A couple of times when I wanted to feed my e... Read more

Day 1: Celebrating small victories

Monday, September 21, 2015      2 comments

Yesterday was about regrouping from learning on Saturday my weight was continuing to climb. I've been irresolute with diet, so I am trying to keep a few key points in mind: 1. I need to take my diet moment-by-moment, day-by-day 2. I need ... Read more

Day 1: The scale was not kind to me today

Saturday, September 19, 2015      5 comments

I really try to use this blog for positivity, but it's short supply for me this morning. The scale was UP 2 pounds today. Sigh. I'm having trouble understanding why I cannot get hold of my diet. I've done it before. Why is it so hard for me... Read more

Day 1: Continuing to focus on fitness

Wednesday, September 16, 2015      2 comments

My diet still isn't on track, but I have been successfully focusing on fitness and plan to keep that up. Eventually the diet will catch up. Since my 1.7-mile jog the other day I have continued with my C25K program with good results. Sometim... Read more

Day 1.1: Massive accomplishment!

Saturday, September 12, 2015      7 comments

After I wrote my first blog entry this morning, I felt motivated to get my daily workout done. The weather was beautiful, so I decided to do my Couch-to-5K program outside. I rarely look ahead at what my specific workout is going to be on C... Read more

Day 1: Finding the positive angle

Saturday, September 12, 2015      1 comments

I finally worked up the courage to climb on the scale this morning for the first time in weeks. The damage was bad, but not as bad as I'd feared considering I allowed myself to stress-eat for three solid weeks. I never thought I could find ... Read more

Day 1: Diet victory and doubling down on exercise

Monday, September 07, 2015      4 comments

I think I did all right with my intake yesterday. I stopped logging after dinner and must confess to having enjoyed a few grapes in the evening. I know grapes are pretty sugary, but I figure it's a better choice than potato chips or candy. ... Read more

Day 1: Getting the diet back on track

Sunday, September 06, 2015      4 comments

It's been a stressful four weeks. I invoke the "S" word ("stress," "stressful") to excuse a lot of bad health behavior. It's true my life has been stressful for the past few weeks/months/years, but whose life ISN'T stressful? I need to sto... Read more
