Tracking Food------FAIL

Sunday, June 24, 2012      3 comments

Uh huh, what is it about tracking food that I find so tedious? Already have fallen off the wagon on this one. For the most part, my food choices have been wise with the odd "treat". Except last night. Went out for coffee with a good fri... Read more

I got the okay to return to work. Still need to arrange a meeting @ HR with the union, manager, me and the HR rep for a gradual return to work. Is 5 shifts in 2 weeks before returning to a regular .8 rotation gradual?? LOL. Crossing my fin... Read more

Sigh. The weather is crap this week. The temperature went down to 3 last night. Really? Mid June? I'm supposed to be trying to walk some distance with the air cast on. I can't bring myself to go outdoors when it's damp, windy and cool. ... Read more

They say never start anything new on a Monday. They say, never start anything new on a day, where you previously tried something new and failed. Hm. So, rather than wait until Monday to "be careful" with my food choices, I started today. Bec... Read more

Typical Me

Today is June 2, 2012. On April 27th, I twisted my ankle for the second time in a week sustaining not only a severe sprain but an avulsion fracture of the talus (part of the ankle bone). So, my weight loss program at Herbal Magic was put on ho... Read more

Today is Feb. 5th. I should have been out of this house hours ago. I should have gone to my Zumba class. Oh well, no sense flogging myself. There's always next weekend. I made it to the gym on Monday and Wednesday and started back on my cou... Read more

Ah sweet bitter January

I did it! I broke the plateau...finally. After sitting at 148 for 2 months, I weighed 145 on Monday. A reason to carry on. 5 lbs from my first goal weight of 140. My second goal weight is 135 and the final being, 130. That one is for re-ev... Read more

A New Year

Sunday, January 02, 2011      0 comments

So, here it is, January 2nd now. I have so much work to do in my life. The biggest rock around my leg is my computer. I am an addict. I can sit for hours and research, read, listen to music, play games, edit photos and the list goes on. It'... Read more

Half way there.

July 4th. One week left of work and then 3 weeks of holidays. I'm hoping I can maintain my eating habits while not at work. When I'm home I tend to eat very little as I'm just not hungry. The weight is finally coming off. Sad to say that it... Read more

Making progress slowly

I've managed to finally move my ticker!! I've lost 10 lbs and my clothes are loose on me. What a feeling. I've lost a total of 14 " from my body. I haven't had the chance to go to the gym as much as I'd like. I can't seem to push myself to... Read more

Keep on plugging

So, it's been 3 weeks since joining the gym. I hired a personal trainer for 12 weeks. I figure the extra money will be well spent. So far it's going well. I never remember the weight I'm using for each exercise. I guess I should check with ... Read more

Feeling better about me.

Monday, January 18, 2010      0 comments

First of all, it was nice to see the comments posted on my last blog. Made me feel that out there are these invisible people who feel the same way I do. Just those few written words lifted my spirit. I'm sure there are a lot of women out ther... Read more

Reality Bites

Monday, January 18, 2010      2 comments

So, I cried today. I've stared at that scale for several weeks now. Can't even remember the last time I stepped on it. But I've been living in major denial. I thought I'd gained approximately 5 lbs. Whoa! 10!! Can't believe it. Yup........ Read more

Sunday...Day 1 of Trying again

Monday, January 11, 2010      0 comments

Okay. So yesterday, I stared that bike down and did it. Conquered the " I don't want to do this" attitude. I threw in a DVD and pedaled for 60 mins. Logged 23 km ( I think...I need to check my book and see if it's miles or Km). Then I pull... Read more

Christmas picture equals MOTIVATION

Saturday, January 09, 2010      1 comments

Oh dear. My manager at work pinned up a picture of me taken with two other women at our Christmas party. I looked at it and thought OMG I look fat! I have no idea how much I weigh as I'm too afraid to step on the scale. I haven't bought any ... Read more
