sticking with it
Friday, December 11, 2009      0 comments

I've been consistent with both diet and exercise in the last month and the results have been great: 11 pounds lost, down one pants size, tons of energy and I feel great! I've even started (slowly) back into running, which I haven't done much of ... Read more
reality check at the doctor
Friday, November 20, 2009      2 comments

My fall has gone a lot like the rest of the year-jumping on and off the healthy eating and exercise wagon. A doctor's visit last week gave me a reality check, though: I've gained nearly 20 pounds in the last 2 years and my blood sugar has crept ... Read more
feeling good!

My last few entries were about my falling off-and climbing back on-the wagon the past few months. I'm happy to say that I've been firmly ON for the past couple of weeks (and for all but a week of August) and I feel really good! Doing well on ea... Read more
time to make a change...

I've been doing well at my eating and exercise plan over the past week or so. But I've finally resolved to do something about the underlying issue: the high stress job I have. My stress eating is keeping at 10-15 extra pounds on, and I need to d... Read more
happy summer...

The past few weeks have been up and down for me. I resolved to maintain my healthy habits and give up alcohol entirely so help me lose the 10 pounds I keep finding again. Everything went great for nearly 2 weeks, and I lost 6 pounds. Then we had... Read more
WAY off the wagon, part 2...

Well, my great intentions to pick my diet and exercise routine back up post-vacation fell by the wayside. No exercise, lots of eating bad stuff and drinks. Including a really bad margarita kick that probably added several pounds by itself. Now I... Read more
WAY off the wagon

I've been on vacation since July 1. I did OK the first couple of days, then started making more poor eating choices and didn't exercise for a couple of days. Then my younger sister came out for a visit, and we both went way overboard on eating a... Read more

I had a busy week as my birthday was Wednesday, and we had several dinners with friends. So my last workout before today was last Monday. I ate and drank whatever I wanted, and on Friday at work I had the worst binge I've had in some time-I know... Read more
not feeling so hot...

It's the day before my birthday and now, of all times, I've caught the stomach bug that's going around. I hope it's better by tomorrow! I managed a light workout yesterday when I was coming down with it, but today I felt too lousy to do anything... Read more
staying healthy over the holiday weekend

Had a nice relaxing weekend over Memorial Day-took Friday and Tuesday off to relax and de-stress. I've been getting my exercise in, but like many people I struggle with eating the right things especially when going out. We met friends for lunch ... Read more

Summer's almost here-it's finally getting warm in Boston. Yay! I have a few days off for Memorial Day and plan to bike with my husband and get plenty of exercise-starting right after I finish this entry. Have done well on eating this week, so th... Read more
STILL one day at a time

It's been a rough few months for the diet. Exercise has been inconsistent. I've been doing 5-factor fitness, but with a few 1 week breaks in the middle. But I realize that the only one I hurt by slacking off is myself, and I'm tired of doing tha... Read more
5 Factor Fitness
Wednesday, March 04, 2009      0 comments

I just started Harley Pasternak's 5 Factor Fitness program. It advocates as little as a 25 minute workout 5 days a week with high reps of only 3 exercises per day, plus 15-30 minutes of cardio. This was different from my routine of a lot of card... Read more
off, and right back on, the wagon

well, since my last post almost a month ago I was really doing well on my program-both the diet and the exercise parts. But I knew that last Monday was when we would be announcing layoffs at work, and as usual I slipped into emotional eating (th... Read more
starting AGAIN
Sunday, February 08, 2009      0 comments

Well, went a little-ok, a lot-off track in January. The stress of having to deal with a lot of changes at work because of the economy really got to me. So I did all the things I do when stresses-ate bad stuff (burgers and fries way too often), d... Read more
