Out of gall bladder removal surgery and on the mend.
Tuesday, May 20, 2014      0 comments

Isn't it funny how things can get in the way of a fitness plan. My stupid gallbladder (which is now thankfully in the medical waste bin) had two gall stones the size of golf balls and five or six the size of a dime. Ouch is the only way to des... Read more
My ring now fits!

It has been years since I was able to put on my garnet ring....Now I can put it on my ring finger and it fits nicely. No fat squishing around the sides of the ring, it just sits there nicely without being tight. I am so pleased about this.... Read more
Exercised anyway
Monday, March 03, 2014      3 comments

I didn't want to do it. Sitting on the computer seemed more fun. It would be hard and I didn't want that. So I got up and put in the dvd and started moving anyway. I put in my half hour of exercise and now I feel proud of myself. Instea... Read more

He is so supportive. For my anniversary present he ordered me a watch with a chronograph/stopwatch to time my runs, tights, training log, sweat wicking t-shirt and a pedometer that counts steps, calories burned, distance and fat grams burned. ... Read more

Weighing in at 187.4. This is the lowest I've weighed in 9 years. I feel fantastic. Why did I wait so long to do this? What was I thinking? Well I surely won't be waiting any more. I need to reward myself for this accomplishment.... Read more
Hopped on the scale this morning
Wednesday, March 13, 2013      4 comments

And it said 194.8 exactly one pound down from the last time I was on it. It feels pretty good to be just a few pounds away from the 180's. This raw vegan low fat diet is working. It tastes good too. I still don't know what I will rew... Read more

You would think I would have a little. But no. 3 oz. almonds for 500+ calories. With dinner tonight it will put me in at 1,600 calories for the day. Well above my 1,250 goal. Why do I do this to myself? I got hungry. Too hungry. The almo... Read more

It's delicious! Now I am fully vegan. The cream in my coffee was the last holdout. Now I am using almond breeze and it is yummy! I'm using the vanilla flavored one. I never really cared much for cows milk and only used a splash of cre... Read more

Got on my scale this morning and was down to 196.8 from 198.2. Makes me happy because I didn't think I'd lose any more weight this month. I'm very happy. That makes 6 pounds this month. If I keep doing this every month by December I wi... Read more
Bananas for breakfast
Wednesday, February 27, 2013      2 comments

Bananas are great! Full of carbs and sweet. I also had a glass of grapefruit juice putting my calories around 340. I feel full of energy like I could go run for a mile. Sadly there is ice where I am at so I am stuck indoors. I am buyi... Read more
