Wednesday, June 19, 2013      9 comments

So here is my dilemma. To say that I dislike the taste of water is an extreme understatement. I think it tastes horrible, yes even bottled water. So I have been adding Crystal light and other sugar free drink mixes to it. It is the ONLY way I ca... Read more

It took much longer than it should have but I finally went in there and pushed through my annoyance. My son even helped me. He's in there putting it to good use now AND I was sweating by the time I was done, so yeah, I think it counts as a worko... Read more

This is almost too embarrassing to admit, but here it goes. For Christmas this year I decided to surprise my now 13 year old son with a home gym bought from Walmart. It was something he was interested in that would benefit me in my weight loss j... Read more

I need a new approach. Trying to eat healthier and track my food works, but only for so long. After a while I get complacent or tired of trying to log in everything I eat. Sometimes it's not so easy to figure out if you don't make a recipe alrea... Read more

I went on vacation last week with the best of intentions. I knew I was going to eat somewhat unhealthy and more than usual, but I had a plan. I booked a hotel I used to stay at when I was a kid. There was a pool, a sauna, a jacuzzi and an exerci... Read more
Another positive "side effect" to my weight loss
Friday, July 27, 2012      3 comments

So I was at my second job serving tables earlier this week and it was pretty slow. Uh oh. I work with a bunch of kids age 18-25 so it can get pretty interesting when we are bored. Several funny things went on and I couldn't help but laugh. Then ... Read more

As some of you know from previous Blogs I was told I wasn't eating enough protein even though I was within my range. Later I was also told that even though I was staying within most of my ranges the weight wasn't coming off as fast because I was... Read more
