Wednesday, July 30, 2014      16 comments

On a fluke I went back and read my blog from July 22, 2013. I wrote the following: "When I got my FitBit in January, I was lucky if I got 2500 steps a day. In the last month, I've not dropped below 4,000 a day, and I average more than 5k. ... Read more

I've had a pretty good week. I still haven't lost all of that water weight, but meh. It will come off in the next week. Last Tuesday I got over 15,000 steps! I had so much excess energy I just jogged at my desk until I was worn out. It too... Read more

Learning to Cook
Wednesday, July 16, 2014      8 comments

I would say that at least 60% of my success at this weight loss thing is directly related to how frequently I cook. I've been cooking most of my life, due to living with a single dad and getting sick of eating pancakes and mac and cheese all the... Read more

You hopefully know by now that I love to cook from scratch. It makes it soooo easy to control my calories, sodium and fat. I often adapt recipes that sound yummy to lighten them up. So I decided to post a bunch of recipes I've used last week and... Read more
The Blog of Boredom
Tuesday, July 08, 2014      9 comments

So today I left my phone at home, and work is slow. I have things I can do but I just don't want to DO any of them. I've been feeling like that a lot lately - blah. Not sure if it's the summer heat, or just a desire to be lazy for a while. ... Read more

1. My Mother-in-Law likes to show she loves us by buying us things, including food. 2. Never mention that you're saving up for a new car to MIL, she will demand you take her money. 3. MIL is right, eating like crap for 4 days will no... Read more

On Heading Into Maintenance
Sunday, May 25, 2014      16 comments

So... I panicked a little when my doc told me to stop losing. He didn't actually demand I stop losing, but he said he likes people to be between 24 and 25 on the BMI scale. As of yesterday morning, I am 6 lbs from the goal I set more than 2 year... Read more

Short Blog - What I've Been Up To
Tuesday, April 29, 2014      11 comments

The bad: I found out last night a former coworker is in hospice from a sudden and aggressive cancer. It's hit me harder than I thought. He would always talk about how much he loved his daughters, so he reminded me of my dad a lot. It's been 3... Read more
