I had kind of a down day yesterday, but things are looking up today. I had gone to the gym for the 5th day in a row on Wednesday and then took yesterday off to rest up--I was still sore. I'm feeling better today and plan to go back tonight. (The... Read more

Wednesday, August 08, 2012      4 comments

I did a 30 minutes walk/jog workout last night and came home, too sore to do any lifting, but glad I went anyway. I got a good night's rest and saw a small dip on the scale this morning, so all is well. To lose 2 to 2.5 lbs per week, I woul... Read more

Nothing new to report here, just checking in. Last night I went to the gym - 3rd day in a row- and did a 25 minute running/walking workout and a tiny bit of lifting. I'm pretty sore so I don't want to push it. My plan is to go and run even if I ... Read more

Just checking in after the 2nd day at the new gym. It was great. I ran/ speed-walked for 20 minutes + a 5min cool down walk, then did a little lifting and came home. Glad I went! I think I'm ready for the week to start, better shower, eat a... Read more

After the first workout with the new gym yesterday, I expected to be a lot more sore, but I only a little bit sore today! Plus I saw another little drop on the scale, which is a great motivator to go back today to do some cardio. Since i got bac... Read more

Today I finally went and joined the gym I had been planning on, and then I went back this afternoon to work out. I did some cardio for a warm up (24 minutes of fast 4.0 mph walking) and day 1 of a pretty standard weight lifting plan. So it ... Read more

Tonight I went to a party at a friend's house and there was a lot of alcohol and snacks and was worried. I didn't have time to prepare well beforehand by eating plenty, so I was especially worried. But, everything worked out. I didn't have anyth... Read more

I don't know what changed in the last two days but I am sleeping a lot better and waking up much more rested--before 9am, with both alarm. It's a great feeling. I'm staying on track and eating right and getting plenty of water -- over 150 o... Read more

I ate well yesterday but was a little peckish by bedtime. Instead of indulging, I went to bed and woke up this morning to another small loss--great motivation. I also woke up feeling very very refreshed, and I wonder if I slept better without a ... Read more
Another day of success
Wednesday, August 01, 2012      4 comments

I'm down a total of about 10.4 lbs since I got on this plan (2.5 weeks or so?) and things are working out pretty well. It's so different to only eat when you're hungry and then, only eat enough to fill you up. I know it is how I should eat all t... Read more

Everything's on track still and I am doing well sticking to my diet and everything. This week my main goal will be to drink 200+ ounces of water per day. (I have a 50-ounce bottle so I just have to fill it 4 times.) I'm about 5lbs away from 200,... Read more

Another busy day at work but I'm feeling good and eating right. I dropped another little bit on the scale today which is always nice to see, too. I try not to get too caught up in those numbers since they go up and down but it's still a big sour... Read more

I'm still losing slowly. I'm down 8lbs total in the last 8 days, which i know is mostly water weight and stuff, but it is still a good feeling. Now the real work sets in! I downloaded a great book about willpower last night to my Kindle, I ... Read more
