Don't want depression to derail me
It happens. Sometimes life throws you a little curveball, and sometimes it's a BIG one that totally derails a plan you've been working on for months. Not wanting to rehash the whole mess here, just saying I'm dealing with the aftermath. I'm p... Read more
Well I did it!
I am officially below 150 lbs! Today I'm at 149.5, was actually a bit lower than that yesterday. Read more
Celebrating the small victories!
Sometimes you just have to celebrate the small victories - like last week, when I actually TURNED DOWN a cupcake, having my healthy low-cal snack instead, or when I actually stayed away - didn't even look at - the leftover food brought up to my ... Read more
Who's mouth is it, anyway?
So here it is, August 6, about halfway through my latest diet challenge of losing a measly 5 lbs, and I have lost zip! No, actually somehow I gained a pound & lost that, and I guess I did lose another 1/2 lb, so down to 153.5. This is SO MUCH ... Read more
My definition of "insanity"
They say insanity is doing the same thing over and over, and expecting different results. Well, MY definition - at least as far as weight loss is concerned - is NOT doing the things that I know I should be doing, and expecting to lose weight an... Read more
Lost weight over the weekend!
It's just not something that happens very often, so I have to post this. It may only be 1/2 lb, but it's still DOWN! Read more
Smart or Sell-out?
Hello, it's been awhile since I've blogged on Sparkpeople. Well I signed up for half-marathon training, and have done some impressive (for me) runs - but I've also injured my right foot, twice! Or probably re-injured is more likely. I'm havin... Read more
My first official training run - 1st 4 mile run!
So today was my first official training run for the Memorial 1/2 marathon, and my first outdoor run in several months, AND my first ever 4 mile run - can I get a Read more
First training run - 3 miles
Well, I realize 3 miles isn't that big a deal, but I'm still proud of myself for doing it. Mostly because I spent close to half a day today unpacking boxes for one of my Professors, which I wasn't supposed to do, but he was out of town and the ... Read more
I'm Baaack - Happy New Year
How is everyone? Time for the annual New Year's resolutions, and my resolution this year is to run my first half-marathon. Yeah, I'd like to lose some weight, too. Took all my stats today, and they are really awful - weight is up, waistline i... Read more
Been down but not out
You ever notice that sometimes life just gets in the way of your plans? I was "planning" to start training for the Reindeer Run 10K - it would have been my first 10K - when I twisted my ankle around Halloween. Read more
Well my last blog may have been full of self-pity, so this one will be better. No, I'm still not "trying to lose weight" before the home situation improves - too much stress for that, BUT I don't want to use this as an excuse to gain weight, ei... Read more
Well isn't that strange?
I am seriously considering taking a break from the whole "weight-loss" thing, partially because I'm not losing any weight but mostly because a certain home situation still hasn't been resolved, and may not be before the end of the year. Yesterd... Read more
My plan doesn't seem to be working
So I've been tracking food for nearly two weeks, and here we go again: weight drops down to around 151, the goes back up to 153-54. I spent five months earlier this year trying to drop down below 150, and it was down for a little while. So I'm... Read more
Not so great Labor Day weekend
I don't know why I always have so much trouble on the weekend - I still don't know how to track food when I eat out, and I ate out twice! Saturday we went to Ron's Hamburgers (not a terrific choice for dieters), and that night we got pizza from... Read more
