Meal Plan - Three Options

Wednesday, July 30, 2008      2 comments

I'm not sure what my plan should be this weekend, food-wise, so I am hoping that writing will help me figure it out. (And if that doesn't work, I'm sure someone reading will steer me in the right direction.) I'm leaving tomorrow in the lat... Read more

Excitement - Why I Shouldn't Depend on it

Tuesday, July 29, 2008      3 comments

Yesterday I was dealing with a bit of a weight gain after a weekend of less-than-perfect eating. It occurred to me that it wasn't going to be particularly fun to step on the scale in the morning because of the higher-than-previous number I knew... Read more

I went to two parties this weekend and I gained about 2.5 pounds in two days. But I'm not disappointed. First of all, I didn't totally blow it. At the first party, I drank red wine and ate a tiny smores (would you call just one a "smore"??), ... Read more

Weekend Blast

Saturday, July 26, 2008      2 comments

I'm already down to 155.8 - sticking to around 1,200 calories a day and exercising, the weight I've recently gained is just sliding back off. I will definitely increase my calories soon, but I'm hoping to stay strict until I go to the beach nex... Read more

I just wanted to report that I have been sticking with it - eating right, working out.. I've even started doing a little jogging again! I'm back down to 158.4 and plan on being down a few more pounds by the time I go to the Cape next weekend.... Read more

I am so proud of myself. I set some reasonable goals, not too strict but very healthy, and I stuck to them, on a WEEKEND VACATION no less!!! I had amazing but healthy meals this weekend - lots of salads, grilled fish, only a little carbs/desse... Read more

Friday, July 18, 2008      2 comments

It's Friday afternoon - the weekend is upon me, and I need a plan to stay on track. I planned what I'll be eating on Monday already. I'll throw it all together in a bag and leave it in the fridge so I'll definitely follow through on Monday. ... Read more

Back to basics

Thursday, July 17, 2008      1 comments

Before I go to bed each night, I need to be committed to a specific eating plan for the next day. On a regular day, the plan should include specific amounts of specific foods and be prepared in advance. When I'll be having a meal out, commit ... Read more

Frustrated and a cross between jaded and angry

Wednesday, July 16, 2008      1 comments

I was doing fine last week until the weekend came. On Saturday I didn't track, but I decided to make reasonably healthy choices without overdoing it. Or so I thought. Somehow I ended up three and a half pounds heavier the next day! I couldn'... Read more

The only way

Wednesday, July 09, 2008      3 comments

The only way to manage my weight that could really be both effective and healthy is to be consistent and moderate. It has to be long term, so it has to be something I can do for the long term. I have been exercising only 30 minutes per day lat... Read more

OK... the burst of energy that I was feeling when I wrote my last blog entry didn't last. To summarize the past few months, I was doing really well from mid-April until early June when I went to Maine for the weekend. I did well the first ... Read more

It's go time...if I want to look fantastic this summer, I gotta go NOW. I am going to have a basic template for my daily food plan. I will go with 1,200 calories per day for as long as I can handle that, then I can increase when needed. T... Read more

No Time!

Thursday, June 05, 2008      2 comments

It's already past 10 p.m. and I haven't started packing for the weekend in Maine, but I really want to write a quick blog anyway. I was at 151.4 today (yay), had a 2nd cup of coffee with lunch, and a pretty good workout consisting of 25 minutes... Read more

Feeling Fantastic - a Breakthrough :)

Wednesday, June 04, 2008      3 comments

FINALLY, my back is feeling better so I instantly feel 5 years younger (yay, I've always wanted to be 25 again!). I could stretch, I could lift my butt off the mat when doing a certain ab move, I could shave my legs in the shower, and... I ROCK... Read more
