A good day!
Yesterday turned out to be a good day - particularly last night.
Once I got off Medifast and adopted my old Bad Habits, dinners had gotten, well, out of control. You know what I mean - you have eaten pretty good all day at work, avoiding th... Read more
So I haven't made any significant scale victory (boo!), but there is one non-scale victory (NSV) I have made: I have checked into Sparkpeople every day for the last 8 days!
Summer is here! Well, it's technically been here for nearly a week, but for my area, today and this weekend are expected to be HOT. So I figured I would do my part and post some stuff about Heat Exhaustion and Heat Stroke:

A Conversation with the Scale
It's funny how things are. I stepped on the scale this morning, and it was down like .4 pounds.
"Okay, scale, we need to have a talk." I stared down at it disapprovingly. "Why are you only down .4 pounds? I mean, I ran last night, I've real... Read more
Motivator of the Day?! I Am Touched!
I checked my emails this morning, as I typically do, and imagine my (pleasant) surprise to see the email saying I was motivator of the day! OMG! Can I just squeal in pleasure for a couple of seconds?
Okay, now that I'm done, there's another... Read more
Building New Habits
I am naturally lazy.
That's not entirely fair, because I lost that massive 100+ pounds back in 2013 because of my hard work and the support of my family. But let's face it: it's incredibly easy to just cheat and grab a quick meal than to pr... Read more
Far too long
It's funny how these things work. One day, you tell yourself, "I'm tired, I'll take a break." Then the next day you don't feel better. Then the next. And suddenly, half a year is gone and then you're like, "I can't come back now - look how long ... Read more
Go to the Doctor - Do it FOR YOU
For years and years and years, I didn't go to my doctor because I was fat and I didn't want to have the talk about how I was fat (my doctor at the time would and did talk about how I needed to lose weight for like 30 min straight, even if I was ... Read more
It's belated, I know, but I wasn't feeling so good last week, and now, I am.
Whatever caused me to feel blue has washed over me, and I feel SO RELIEVED it is gone. DO NOT MISS AT ALL. I don't like being blue and down and negative; there is ... Read more
Been Feelin' Blue
I'm not exactly sure why, either. Is it the gloomy weather? Is it my eating habits? Exercise habits? Did something happen in my life that I'm not processing correctly.
I just wanted to explain why I haven't logged on. I haven't forgotten yo... Read more
Life has been good, though last weekend was BUSY preparing for my aunt's boyfriend's birthday party!
Probably the best part, or at least one of the memorable ones for me, was when I decided to play chase with my cousin's son, a very energet... Read more
Week 4 and 1 Year Anniversary
Things got all wonky what with my vacation a while back, so pardon my departure! I have been trying to stay on plan, and while my weight loss has not been as much as I would have liked, I *AM* happy to report being down to 191.2 as of this morni... Read more
This weekend was AWESOME!
Now, Saturday morning, my knees hurt so bad, I wasn't able to run nearly as well as usual. So that had me bummed out quite a bit. BUT Sunday was awesome! I really loved seeing all the fellow nerds dressed up, but t... Read more
So much goodness this week and this upcoming week! I almost don't know where to begin!
So this week, I made sure to schedule an annual checkup with my doctor. This is of-note because this will be the FIRST TIME in my entire adult life I've ... Read more
So I've been back on Medifast for 1 week. My first week went REALLY well, overall. Monday, I "splurged" by having a beer (only one!), and on Saturday, I went to a friend's house, where she served vegetarian lasagna, wine and ice cream. But other... Read more
