Since I pulled myself out the slump I was in over the weekend (and no, it didn't have to do with the Steelers losing the Superbowl), I'm on fire. My calorie intake has been right on. I've been able to workout for longer periods of time and fee... Read more

been working out, that is. I hate to admit it, but I haven't done anything for four days straight! YIKES!!! I can't believe it. I can't explain it nor do I have any excuses, but I did walk/run two miles today. Here's to a new streak!... Read more
It's Working!

Thanks to all of those who suggested drinking warm/hot water to help with my water intake. It's WORKING! I've always preferred ICE cold water, but if I drink that right now, I feel an ice cube myself. I was able to drink four glasses at room ... Read more
Water anyone...

I must say that I tend to run cold, especially since I've lost weight. One thing that I struggle with is drinking my water in the cold weather. I like my tea to keep me warm. My hands are almost always cold (ask my children, that hate it when... Read more

My body has always done some funky things due to hormones. It's really been unpredictable through the years, but evened out while I was pregnant or nursing. Now that I'm done with that season in my life, I'm back to having strange things happe... Read more

This is what you think when you don't do a particular exercise for awhile. My oldest DD and I are doing the 30-day Shred again and yes, it's been awhile. OH MY, it's all coming back to me. LOL But we're on day three and already I can tell ... Read more

"Although we talk about weight loss in terms of numbers—calories in versus calories out—your body is not a calculator and it doesn't operate like a checking account." This is from an Spark article. Sometimes a line just really makes a lot ... Read more
More Calories
Tuesday, January 25, 2011      2 comments

I'm finding that since we got our new treadmill, it appears that my body requires a little more calories each day. Especially when I'm done running. I'll have to see how this plays out with weigh-ins, and I'll adjust it from there. I am thril... Read more
An Off Day

Today started great, but I had one thing go wrong and my day started sliding. I ate fine until dinner, but I let myself have an extra helping, which I normally don't do and a cookie, which I didn't need. I know it wasn't crazy overboard, but I... Read more

Okay, ladies, I know most of you are not football fans (probably your husband's are, though), but I, along with the rest of my family, am avid Steeler fan. It's just one of those things that goes with being from the Pittsburgh area. So, th... Read more

My dear husband and I finally got to out for our 18th anniversary dinner that the children blessed us with (more than a month late, but well worth the wait). It is snowing horribly, but we only live five minutes from the restuarant, so we decid... Read more
