Moving in the right direction...
So I stepped on the scale this morning, again. (I probably weigh too often, but it helps me to stay accountable) This morning, the scale showed 185.2, so I broke the 186 barrier at least a tiny bit. That really motivates me to keep making good c... Read more
Reflections on why I might be stuck...
As I posted before, I've been stuck weighing about 186 for probably a month (or possibly longer) I am not willing to just accept that, so I've been reflecting on possible reasons.
1) Looking at last time I lost weight, I am working out les... Read more
I feel like I've plateaued. Every time I've stepped on the scale for the past month or so, it has read basically the same plus or minus a few tenths of a pound. 186-ish. I'm sick of 186. I want to see 170s, 160s, even 150s... I've been eating he... Read more
If you've been keeping up with my status updates, you heard about me stepping on a christmas tree ornament yesterday... Great idea, I know... It actually damaged me more than the ornament, but I still didn't put that ornament on the tree. Anyway... Read more
It's probably a combination of factors, but these last couple of days I have been ravenous. Which is not necessarily good if you're trying to lose weight. The other side could be it might be my body telling me that I need to eat more. I have rec... Read more
Checking in again
I realize it's been a while since I last posted a blog on here. That's mostly because lately I feel like it's been a lot of the same old, same old. I've been walking. I've been doing boot camp. I've been eating healthy-ish. I'm currently a bit t... Read more
Yes, I'm still sore from Tuesday's boot camp workout, but I feel awesome! I don't know if it's linked to daylight savings time or my new shift in diet and exercise, but I am feeling awesome this morning. I woke up at about 6:10 this morning (20 ... Read more
Boot Camp... I'm still alive
So boot camp kind of kicked my butt... I haven't worked out that hard in over a year now. That's a long time. But, I survived. And I got a really good workout... And then I came home and walked around my house for an hour because I didn't have e... Read more
Spark Activity Tracker
Recently, Sparkpeople alerted me to a sale they were having on their spark activity tracker. For some reason, I decided to give it a shot. I bought one. Now, I love it. It has inspired me to get up and get moving, and draw my attention to the fa... Read more
How do I forget this feeling?
When I make good choices, I feel awesome! This past week, I have been walking half an hour to an hour every day. It is a small workout, but nonetheless, I feel awesome. I feel energized. I feel healthy. I feel strong. I feel confident. It's a go... Read more
Long time no post..
So clearly, life has been busy. I was away in NH for the long weekend. And for the first half of the weekend, I did pretty well. I drank my water, I chose healthier sounding menu items, I limited myself to no more than two drinks a day... I was ... Read more
Fall is in the air
I love the clean crisp air of the fall months. I've walked to school every day this school year so far, and it has been so great to get that little bit of time outside in the morning. Granted, I do live less than half a mile from the school.. so... Read more
Planning for the weekend
This weekend, I am heading up to North Conway with Brett and my parents. Brett has met my parents several times, but this will be the first time that we all go away together. Brett loves trains and my father has been wanting to take the Notch tr... Read more
New incentive to lose weight.
So I now have an even greater desire to lose that last 20 pounds (at least).
I bought a dress. My wedding dress.
The awesome news is that I found the dress that I've loved ever since I started dreaming of weddings years ago.
The other aw... Read more
Still keeping on keeping on
So far, heading back to school has really helped me to get some of my habits back on track. I've lost about 10 pounds from my highest weight this summer. I've gotten to the point where I can wear a good portion of the clothes in my closet (altho... Read more
