Enjoying my break :-)
Wednesday, December 21, 2011      2 comments

As planned, I am in a 2 week break from The Female Body Breakthrough. I worried a bit about whether I'd go to the gym without a big workout laid out.... but I've been 3 times this week so all is good :-) I'm doing Centergy Monday & Thursday an... Read more

I've been very hungry this week and ate near the top of my range all week. I struggled a bit to get my weekend weight off but was comfortable with my progress by week's end. I was back to where I like to stay (2 pounds below goal). But I was ... Read more
Too low body fat?
Saturday, December 17, 2011      4 comments

Just want to document this to come back to later. So.... since beginning my weight loss and fitness journey I have noticed changes in my cycle. While losing my periods got more like they were when I was younger. Tighter ovulation, tigh... Read more
Sooooo hungry!
Thursday, December 15, 2011      2 comments

My biggest PMS symptom these days is hunger. It's the first clue I get that it's almost time for AF to arrive. TOTALLY makes sense to me that most of my weight loss was the week before and week of AF because I really do think that my metabolis... Read more
Another Splurge-y Weekend
Monday, December 12, 2011      0 comments

My best friend from college and her family came to visit for the weekend. We've been making holiday goodies together for years and years. Goodness, 20ish years! This was the weekend and it was really nice. I was 'good' for the most part on S... Read more
Test Results: Splurge Recovery
Thursday, December 08, 2011      1 comments

The test is over. As of today my weight and body fat are back to (below, actually) pre-splurge levels. It took almost all week. I think that's ok for someone in maintenance. If I did it week-over-week my weight would zigzag plus and minus ov... Read more

Since I've started the 'Dial It In' Phase of The Female Body Breakthrough I've had that 'I don't want to go' feeling when I wake up on the morning of a strength training day. Not on elliptical day. Not on Centergy day. Just on a day when I kn... Read more
Big Splurge... it's a test
Monday, December 05, 2011      4 comments

This weekend was crazy busy and we planned two restaurant meals. Ended up both being takeout pizza and beer which is A-OK by me. I love both and both definitely count as a splurge for me. My weight really took a hit, which I totally expected.... Read more
Delightful December
Thursday, December 01, 2011      2 comments

Not really changing much for December 1. Manage stress to avoid emotional eating. Centergy. Relaxing time with hubby. 2. Maintain in the 122-126 pound range. Maintain lean body mass over 100 pounds. 3. Strength train 3x a week, moving t... Read more
Love my jeans
Wednesday, November 30, 2011      2 comments

Today I am wearing a pair of size 4P jeans that I almost didn't buy back in September. They were expensive and I didn't know if they'd fit well long term. I bought them tight. I worried I'd get too small for them even though I've always consi... Read more
Blood work results
Monday, November 28, 2011      3 comments

I had my bloodwork done in October 2010 when I was still overweight (about 6 weeks into this journey) and again a week ago when I was at an 'ideal' BMI. Must say the results are NOT all that much different. I always said I was a healthy fat pe... Read more
No crescent rolls....
Sunday, November 27, 2011      0 comments

I stopped eating crescent rolls years ago. I thought they were gross and so didn't eat them. But they 'had' to be on the table. Even when I hosted Thanksgiving someone would make sure I was going to serve the (vile) things. This year.... no c... Read more
Thanksgiving.... 5 days without the gym does not mean 5 days off!
Tuesday, November 22, 2011      2 comments

We're headed to my parents' house for Thanksgiving. I need to remember that 5 days away from home (where we are really healthy eaters) and the gym (where I burn, on average, 400 calories over my BMR every weekday) means I need to be vigilant wi... Read more
Time Warp
Saturday, November 19, 2011      3 comments

So... I took CGG111's advice to try the juniors section today in a quest for pants. I wanted a pair of skinny jeans to wear with boots and struck out in the petite's department and heading towards juniors did the trick. Super skinny, ultra str... Read more
Physical today... blood work to come
Thursday, November 17, 2011      1 comments

I had my physical today. I saw the nurse practitioner because my doctor is booking 13+ months out. I'll see the NP this year and her next year. I don't have any real worries right now anyway, just wanted to update my family history and get a ... Read more
