I am inching closer and closer and am finally closing in on my goal! I stepped on the scale and saw 143 and saw that it has stayed there for a couple of days and it is nice to know that that is my *true* weight, not just a good weigh in, if tha... Read more

Plateau Hell!
Wednesday, July 16, 2008      3 comments

So why exactly do we plateau out? I know, I know -- I am just living in plateau hell right now and I really need to bust out of it! I have been exercising like a mad dog and eating well, so I don't know what's up. I have been cycling and I gu... Read more

Measurements
Wednesday, July 09, 2008      3 comments

It has been a tad over a month, but with everything that happened last week, measuring was not on my mind. But I did it this week and even though I haven't lost much since starting the cycling, the advice given by CC was to track my measurement... Read more
Stepping it up
Tuesday, July 08, 2008      2 comments

Went spinning yesterday and switched up my bike. The bike I usually use is -- I don't want to say easier -- but in a way it is. The tension has more play in it so you can really adjust how much you want. These Spinner bikes are not so easy. ... Read more

So this past week is going to stay just there -- in the past!! It has been a lot harder than I anticipated after seeing my grandma die. I am relieved for her that her suffering has ended and feel a lot of peace that I got to say my last words ... Read more
Sad.

Well, as most of you know, my grandma passed away on Monday. It was a sad thing to watch her go through. She hadn't had a quality of life for a long time as she was diagnosed with macular degeneration about four to five years ago; last fall, s... Read more
Glad it is Monday!!
Monday, June 30, 2008      3 comments

This is about how my weekend was -- I did NOTHING over the weekend. I lost all of my motivation, I am ashamed to say. I got on the scale and was up a pound. I was so irritated and then I started getting cramps, so I know why now -- good ol Au... Read more

Monday, June 23, 2008      6 comments

Okay so yesterday wasn't the day from hell, this past weekend was the weekend from hell!!!!! My little Mr. Baby was the instigator of about 99% of it -- I had to keep reminding myself that he's only 2, it's just a phase! Wow oh wow!! He was i... Read more

Well I have almost completed my first week "officially" of tracking my calorie cycling numbers along with getting in each day of my exercise and I am both excited and relieved to see that I am down 1.2 putting me at 143.4. I can't remember when... Read more
I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!!
Thursday, June 19, 2008      3 comments

Switching mindset from maintenance to losing has proven to be a whole lot more difficult than I would have thought. I keep going back to the mantra of The Little Engine that Could... I don't know how these calorie cycling numbers are working ... Read more

Above is my favorite spinning bike -- these bikes rock -- I love the way that they fit me as I am a taller person, and the tension adjustment is awesome! As if you couldn't tell, I am off to spinning this morning. My favorite form of cardio, i... Read more
