So on Wednesday, the strangest thing happened. A quarter to 3, I suddenly had a sore throat. Weird. It did not go away with water, so I wasn't too surprised when the next day I woke up with a cold.
So I've been sick for about 5 days now. I'... Read more
I am proud today. Yesterday, I stuck to my plan. I ate the Medifast foods I planned. When I went home, I finished the cous cous and grilled veggies in the fridge - about 1 cup of cous cous and a LOT of grilled veggies (peppers, eggplant, zucchin... Read more
This finding a "new routine thing" *SIGH*
I hate saying "I'm back" because either it seems my previous return didn't last or it really highlights how long it's been that I've taken a break.
I have had my braces for nearly a month, and my mouth is definitely more accustomed to the l... Read more
Finding a new routine
So I got off vacation last week and started slowly getting back into my routine: work, exercise, eating, etc.
And then I got braces last Wednesday! This is a good thing, because as a result of the DNA appliance that was used to cure my slee... Read more
Back from Vacation!
Howdy do! I am BACK from vacation! And I got the most amazing picture:
Yes, that is Stonehenge!
Anyway, while I was on vacation, I was def... Read more
Vacation starts tomorrow!
So tomorrow is my first day of vacation! I'm nervous and excited - traveling to a new place and all! I plan on trying to watch what I eat, but I also want to enjoy the local food too.
Anyway, I won't be on much the next two weeks. Wish me l... Read more
THE SCALE MOVES!
It's probably been like two weeks since I came back on SparkPeople and started monitoring what I ate on MyFitnessPal. In that two weeks, I hadn't really seen the scale move much at all. In fact, Scale and I had a heart-to-heart awhile back.

The Results Are In...
And I think I did pretty darned well!
Honestly, this weekend was so hot, all my sister and I wanted to do was lounge in front of the AC. But I did get off my booty and ran on Friday morning, though it was a tough run - so hot!
At the g... Read more
Goals for the Weekend
The weekend is coming! And with this being a holiday weekend, and knowing what type of person I am, I am going to have to gird myself and ready myself for the trials ahead.
Tomorrow, I'm going to a soccer game. Fun, but of course, junk food... Read more
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:
Heat Exhuastion (... Read more
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
