The body needs FUEL!
Tuesday, September 13, 2011      0 comments

I can feel it today. I'm having a hard time eating (mostly because I just am NOT hungry!) It's still early. I did eat a banana and about 6 ozs of cantaloupe, though. I worked out this morning, and I can feel that my body needs something more s... Read more
Well, that's not what I expected...
Monday, September 12, 2011      0 comments

One of the reasons I think I'm having such a high-speed initial weight loss is actually my caloric intake. I'm actually having trouble meeting my goals! That's both exciting for me, and a little worrying. I've reached the point now where ... Read more
Weekly weigh-in
Monday, September 12, 2011      2 comments

I dropped another 3.4 lbs this week! That's probably a little faster than is strictly necessary, but I'm overweight enough that I feel comfortable with it. It's not like I'm dropping 10 lbs in a week. ;) So I'm down to 204.6. That's jus... Read more
The good and the bad
Sunday, September 11, 2011      1 comments

This has been both a good weekend, and a bad one. The bad first: I haven't exercised since Thursday. Labor day weekend just screwed up my routine, and I gave in to the loving "encouragement" from my husband to just "take a day off." After... Read more

I'm going ot go ahead and warn you... this is going to get a bit rambly! I'm on week two, day 3 of the 5k Your Way plan, and I happily walked 2.3 miles today. I really felt like I could do a lot more. I took the day off yesterday, pretty m... Read more
Milestones for me... and my daughter
Wednesday, August 04, 2010      2 comments

My daughter went to preschool yesterday. It wasn't as hard for either of us as I thought it would be;she didn't even try to look back, and I wasn't sad, either. Instead, I was proud of her, proud she was such a big girl, hopeful that she'll be a... Read more
The first time I haven't felt bad about these changes

This has been so hard for me. I haven't been doing this seriously long, but I've felt so... bad about it. Bad that it's necessary, bad that I haven't gotten a grip on things. But today... today, for the first time, I felt like I was doing... Read more
I've been floating away...
Thursday, July 29, 2010      0 comments

I've been frustrated because I couldn't quite drink my water for the day. I've been absolutely floating,s truggling. Until my husband reminded me that it's supposed to be 8 oz glasses. I've been drinking from 16 ounce glasses. ... Read more
Yesterday was great, today will be good too

Yesterday, I actually stayed within my prescribed calories. On the high end, yes... but that's the first time since I started sparkpeople! Today I'm trying, but I figure I'll probably end up going over. It's my birthday, and my husband i... Read more
And today started out so well...
Tuesday, July 27, 2010      3 comments

I started out great. Well within limits, a little heavy on lunch, because I indulged in some chicken nuggets, but I stopped without going for seconds, and had carrots. Then we ordered pizza. I KNEW that I should have stopped at the s... Read more

I'm sitting here, sipping on my coffee (first cup I've had since i got laid off) and I suddenly started craving some cold water! That is the first I've craved water at all in... longer than I can think. I had two glasses the day before ye... Read more
Small steps... big eating
Monday, July 26, 2010      3 comments

I've never done this calorie-counting thing before. I always scoffed at it as the crutch of the fat. Well, I had to look in the mirror. I'm not exactly the willowy 0%-body-fat person I used to be. I am overweight. I've had to accept ... Read more
Trip to the Aquarium = EXHAUSTED
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      0 comments

Didn't do so well today. While I did go to the aquarium on a church trip with the kids, I sat on my butt all day, and gorged on chips and dip after supper... after overeating and I was still full. I ended up skipping lunch (not on purpose, forgo... Read more

I added a step counter app to my iPod touch. It's a really comprehensive one. They have a free version, but I upgraded to the $1.99 paid version since it's got a LOT more features. itunes.apple.com/us/app/

Whew! I'm tired!
Sunday, July 18, 2010      3 comments

I went for a walk! It's about a quarter of a mile to the store. Me and my oldest daughter walked down, did a bit of grocery shopping (made sure to take my reusable shopping bags), stopped by CVS on my way back, and now we're both sweaty and tire... Read more
