Progress pictures - 7 months and 5 years comparisons
So I finally took those progress pictures. I wanted to do it Friday night, but I got busy; then Saturday morning I forgot; I spent the weekend with a friend; and then forgot again, and got busy, and... whatever. Yesterday night I finally remembe... Read more
Lean Habits and the Art of Patience
So yesterday I talked a bit about the Habit #4 of Lean Habits and how I was struggling with it. I got advice from ALP976 and then asked her if maybe I should reset my tracking to start anew at 0%, because right now I feel like my 60 something % ... Read more
2 pounds away from a 50 pounds loss
I hadn't been on the scale since my last blog post (9 days ago) and this morning I weighed in. I was down to 156.6 pounds.
I started this whole thing back in 2010, in June. It's been over five years already. I clocked in at 205 pounds back ... Read more
Four pounds from my 'goal weight' and I don't care anymore.
My so-called "goal weight" has changed a lot in the last years.
Sometimes I wouldn't have one, or I think I didn't have one, but there was always a magical number in the back of my mind. I remember the first time I joined a gym in January of 2... Read more
Lean Habits are called habits for a reason
So I've been talking about Lean Habits for a while now and I realized this morning that I started them 4 months ago (on July 6th to be exact). Four months already! I'm still on the first four core habits and haven't moved to the fifth one yet, b... Read more
Stress eating... big time
The last two weeks have been somewhat stressful for me but I only realized just how much stressed I was, in the end of last week.
Not only was I FIVE DAYS late on my period (with a lot of panic ensuing that tardiness), but also, getting my per... Read more
NSV: going from envy to pride
So the office administrator at my work is also part of the committee for the gym I attend (it's a community gym, open 24/7 without staff, and it's managed by volunteers, so it's also very cheap, which I appreciate). She's a real gym rat and love... Read more
Lean Habit 4 - eat mostly whole foods
So yesterday was a super busy evening and I ended up NOT READING CHAPTER FOUR. AGAIN. Lol! I got home, cooked supper, was on the phone with a friend for a while, then I spent an hour helping the Arts Council with the photo contest, washed my hai... Read more
Am I progressing?
A couple weeks ago when I was going a bit crazy on the new dating thing, I almost quit eating.
Not because I wanted to lose weight. I just... forgot about it. I never felt hungry for starters, and after a couple bites I already fell full. W... Read more
Long story short, I'm back on the dating market.
My goal is still to be single for a while. I'm aiming for at least 6 months (since my breakup, so a little under 5 months now, which will take my to March).
I'm meeting tons of GREAT people... Read more
I did it - 1500 minutes again!
I like me some SparkPeople trophies. Some of them don't do much for me - SparkPoints, for example, since it feels so easy to get a lot of them now (I got almost 2000 in September only, and I'm not particularly active); but the fitness minutes on... Read more
On losing focus
On a totally unrelated starting note, there's this weird ad on SP right now for "Fit 4 Less" and I see two of them right now. One of them has a guy in it - he's looking rather ridiculous in his 80's-inspired gym clothes, knee-high socks matching... Read more
Your thoughts on trigger foods?
Yesterday I had like a thousand pieces of candy in the afternoon. UGH.
Okay, not a thousand, but at least ten, and probably more like fifteen. Last weekend I went grocery shopping in Yorkton and sometimes I'll buy $5 worth of candy to fill ... Read more
Managing through tough times
I'm trying. I really am trying my best, and I think I've been doing great in the last few days.
Last week started out rough food-wise. After giving in to a bag of chips (half of it Saturday, the other half Sunday), and then giving in again ... Read more
Binging now vs binging before
Yesterday wasn't my most glorious day food-wise, far from it.
Yet I can't help but compare this "disastrous" day to the kind of behavior I had 3-4 years ago, when I could easily go through there quarters of a box of Oreo cookies in one sitting... Read more
