Still on track
Today is now my fifth day in a row on track, and I have lost 3 pounds. I love the reversal of all the ickiness I was doing to myself when I was off track...my pants are already fitting better and my skin is clearing up. YAY.... Read more
I'm on track!!!
Right after I wrote my last blog (two days ago), I decided to look back at my nutrition tracker in May 2011, which is a time I remember feeling really confident about my nutrition habits. I saw that I was eating +/- 2,000 calories each day, inc... Read more
12+ Hours of Sleep
I've been yawning a lot this week despite getting about 8 hours of sleep per night... and then last night I went to sleep around a quarter to 10 and didn't wake up (well, wake up and actually stay awake) until 10:30 A.M. today. So glad I had a ... Read more
For the past few months there have been rumors that my gym was going to close. One day a few weeks ago I was on an elliptical when the electricity suddenly shut off, and I wondered if that was it - the gym was done? But no, they stayed open. I... Read more
I Think I Just Had a Migraine
I hardly EVER get headaches. This morning I was feeling fine physically (sad about my gym, but that's a topic for another blog), and then around noon I had this funky thing happen to my vision, where my peripheral vision in my right eye was all... Read more
Do you love your fitness instructors?
There is an instructor at my gym who is totally awesome. :) She teaches Body Combat and Body Pump, and she is so motivating, friendly, and always totally on with her cueing. She's also perfectly fit and gorgeous. I always attend her classes, a... Read more

Tracking Calories Today
I decided that today was as good a day as any to track my calories, even though I haven't been on a roll with that lately. I think for me a good way to get back on track might be to allow myself to eat whatever I want, but track it. After a fe... Read more
I'm overweight, but I'm happy anyway. I have trouble keeping my weight down, but that doesn't make me a failure. I have a successful career, probably the world's best husband ever, and a fixer-upper house that WE are turning into a beautiful h... Read more
And then there was today...
OK, so tracking is hard on the weekends (and today counted as a weekend day - Happy Columbus Day) when we work on the house all day and people are always bringing us treats. Yes, this is an excuse, but I caved. Last night we went out for my da... Read more
So far, so good.
It's amazing how well tracking my calories works for me. I don't even need to eat all that healthfully (had ice cream for dessert last night, and butternut squash with butter and brown sugar for lunch), or really limit my intake much. All I have... Read more
My New Rules
Track everything I eat (with the level of specificity I was using earlier in 2011, NOT the measure-crazed methods I've used less recently)
Eat reasonable portions at meals and mostly fruits and vegetables for snacks.
Make one or two (a... Read more
The Typical Pattern :(
I'm going to make this short, but I've noticed that every time I gain weight back and write a blog about a vague plan to get back on track, I always seem to gain even MORE before I actually do anything about it. I'm all the way up to 164 today. ... Read more
The Internet has Come to my New (Old) House!
I haven't been tracking my calories since mid-August when we bought our house because we didn't have an internet connection. Without tracking I tried to stick with healthy habits but still managed to gain up to the lower 160s (about a 6-lb gain... Read more
