  • Its Nice to Be Right

    11/24/2015 12:18:40 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I posted a blog about a week ago stating my intention to practice maintenance through Christmas and how I felt that decision had taken some stress off of me. My goal was to maintain between 166-168. Today I did a weight check and I was at 166.7 (and that was after drinking coffee!) So it seems tha... Read more

  • Improvement.

    11/18/2015 7:40:33 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I've really been enjoying my new job. I've been there almost three full weeks. Things are going so well. It's still sinking in that this is my new life. The stress is finally starting to dissipate. I haven't been exercising, but I have been cooking again, and making more of an effort to eat better. ... Read more

  • A Relief = A Spark

    11/16/2015 6:55:47 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    Today I posted my status that I've decided to practice maintenance for now. I felt so relieved after I posted it that it surprised me. I have a tendency to put too much pressure on myself. I also have a tendency to over-commit in nearly every aspect of my life. And then the result is a stressed ... Read more

  • What I Learned This Week

    11/6/2015 12:05:19 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I learned that I am a work in progress. And that it is ok. That there is no instant successes to be found here. This week I had some successes and some failures and I see where some improvements can be made next week. I made a concerted effort to focus on the quality of my food, logging it and t... Read more

  • Eating vs. Eating to Satisfy

    11/4/2015 11:49:21 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    I have a couple days of eating under my belt this week. Monday and Tuesday I was very organized and packed some fabulous foods that kept me in my calorie range. For whatever reason this morning I was running behind and didn't get to pack a yummy breakfast but did manage to grab leftover Vegetable ... Read more

  • November: A Month of Transition

    11/3/2015 11:15:44 AM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    This morning I was driving into town, open fields to my left and mountains to my right. The clouds were socked in over the mountains and a haze of rain and snow partially blocked my view. The yellows and golds of fall still visable but more muted than those of October, glowing. The weather is now... Read more

  • WONDERFUL first day!

    11/2/2015 8:12:58 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    I had a wonderful first day at my new elementary school today. Everything about it was all I've hoped for and more. At one point today, I took a bathroom break, and I just stood there for a second, looking at myself in the mirror. I just couldn't help but smile because I'd DONE IT. I had a job in an... Read more

  • Eating Less

    11/2/2015 6:24:14 PM, by MOMTOMONKEYS2

    What is your secret weapon to eating less and staying in your calorie range? I've had a great day so far with eating great foods and sticking to my food plan. However, I'm wanting to eat even though I'm not starving yet, just slightly hungry. I may need to add some protein to my afternoon snack t... Read more

  • New month, new job, new opportunities for change.

    11/1/2015 8:43:40 PM, by HEALTHYNCGAL

    Tomorrow I start my new job. I'm surprisingly not really nervous about it. I'm looking forward to this change for a number of reasons. I think by leaving my other job I've eliminated an enormous source of stress from my life, and by accepting this new position, I've accomplished a goal I've had for ... Read more
