So I've been stressed by work and life and have allowed my own negative attitude to get the best of me. Whoever said that life wasn't going to be easy had it right! Not that my life is THAT difficult in comparison to so many others - I mean I ... Read more

The last 2 days of this week I was stuck in the most boring all-day meetings ever! Okay, maybe not ever, but close. How is it that a whole day of doing nothing except trying to stay awake and on topic can be so exhausting? At least lunch and sn... Read more

I hate going to the gym when it's packed! I'm fortunate to have a small gym within walking distance in the community where I live and I'm usually able to go and workout in relative peace. Tonight the place was packed! I know that everyone els... Read more

It's been 3(?) days since my last journal entry and in that time I've been very hit or miss with my food tracking and gym time. And because I've been a big SLACKER the scale has not budged. Yay me! How am I ever going to get the body that I wa... Read more

So I survived yesterday's treats... yes, I did have a bagel w/hummus. I chose that over my frozen lunch. I also had more than my fair share of rich, fudgy, chocolate cake. I chose to up my workout to compensate. It wasn't necessarily an easy ... Read more

I was out yesterday for a funeral. I still managed to track my food and get in a good workout (stress relief) and came back to the office with my stash of healthy meals and snacks. And then I came around the corner to my desk and ran into a ba... Read more

I work in an office where if someone has leftovers from a party or bbq over the weekend they bring the extra food to the office on Monday to *share* with their coworkers. How very generous of them to get the fatty, bad-for-them snacks out of th... Read more

I am so happy to see the weekend! What's new, right? Aren't we always happy to see the weekend? But some weekends are sweeter than others and I was ready for this one. I had a rough week full of boring meetings and putting out fires. You kno... Read more

Oh I so did not want to go to the gym last night. I was getting ready to leave work for the day, knew I needed to stop at the grocery store, and was seriously considering making bad food choices and skipping the gym, too. And then I saw a cowo... Read more

So today went much better than yesterday - whew! I'm spot on for calories, made healthy food choices throughout the day, and got in an hour of pretty intense cardio. I know that I just need to stick with this stuff long enough to make it a hab... Read more

So I kinda blew it today... I did make it to the gym and got in 30 mins of cardio & 30 mins of lifting. But I gave into another salty snack craving after working out and now I'm pretty much breaking even for the day. Which, you know, is better... Read more

I lost about 15 lbs a little over a year ago just due to some significant life changes. Then I gained back nearly 10 of those pounds this Spring while finishing my MBA. I have since dropped about 3 just by cutting back a little here and there,... Read more
