Revising Goals. Again! + Hello Overweight
My goals have been revised a few times, due to some stalling issues in my weight loss in 2013. I have been keeping with it, but I guess my body is just SO efficient that it doesn't want to get rid of any weight!
My previous goals were:

Beat the slump
Well, right after I wrote that last post about stalllllling, I beat the slump and hit 196 one day and then 195.6 the next day.
How did I beat the slump? By tracking calories.
Although I am following Atkins and I am not really supposed ... Read more
My last entry was when I hit my goal of 210. I hit my 200 goal barely by 12/21, and then stalled there at 199.9 until 12/31. Between January and Feb, I only hit a low weight of 196.4, but hovered more around 198 the whole time.
So, just 2 l... Read more

It turns out, I hit 210 on 10/13, and I didn't even notice I hit a goal! That's very cool.
I have only lost about 2 lbs since the... Read more
State of the Heather
I'm basically reposting a journal entry from last year. Hey, it's a good post. I want to remind myself about how the same things keep coming up year after year. Time is gonna pass anyway. Might as well change slowly as time goes by!
I'm abo... Read more
My bro-in-law and his wife and two kids stayed with us all of last week. They are moving to Europe soon, so they are kind of in between homes right now. We weren't sure how long they would be staying with us, so we added them to our gym membersh... Read more
We caught up on the whole season of The Biggest Loser this past weekend & in the evenings this week. I went to high school with Arthur Wornum (he was one year ahead of me). I didn't really know him, but I remember seeing him in the hallway and a... Read more
Not me! My 4yo son got to do his first rock wall climbing class yesterday. It was so cute to see him up on the wall, I actually teared up a little. I'm just happy he is getting an opportunity to try out a hobby that is physical. Even if it doesn... Read more
I need to be a little more planned with my gym trips.

Yay, I made it to the gym today. Various things have kept me from the gym, from sick kids, to having an injured foot. I decided to go to the gym again today - yay!
Doing well on counting calories (day 3). For me, the initial few days is the... Read more

Dang, the march of time is infuriating! Oh well... it's going to march on, so I might as well be making small steps to improve my health.
Highs for today:
1. First day with our part-time nanny Bri
2. Talked to Rhonda about editing DSC ... Read more
6 days, no gym, tendonitis?
Ugh, being older than I used to be stinks! :)
I didn't go to the gym 3x last week because after my fun basketball workout, my right knee was in pain! It's only today, 6 days later, that my knee has begun to feel better. I'm guessing it's te... Read more

Today I loaded up the three little boys (as I always do) to drag them to the gym. I brought their swimming gear, too, optimistically thinking I would be able to handle all three of them (or stow one in the nursery while I manned two of them) in ... Read more
