Power of the Groupon

I visited NY for a couple days a few weeks ago and when I returned to FL I didn't do anything. I prepped for my trip with regular workouts. Got home, sat around, read the internet, slept. Def no workouts. I decided to buy some fitness clas... Read more
The Kindness of Family
Wednesday, March 06, 2013      10 comments

You know, I read a few threads about free-loading kids, and I wonder about everyone involved, the family dynamics etc. I'm 32 years old and depend on my parents quite a bit. More than I am comfortable admitting to friends. I feel guilty... Read more

I don't think it is necessary to focus on weight loss every day. Yes, I want to lose weight, and I believe I will even if I am not logging in daily to track what I eat and how much I exercise. Those things help, to be sure. But, whether ... Read more

I haven't been blogging here, although I have started another blog elsewhere. It's theamazingvalerie.blogsp . I'm pretty excited about eating better and even more so that I am doing it while cleaning out the pant... Read more
A Surprise (Plus: Budget Livin')
Sunday, February 03, 2013      9 comments

So I am involved in a program where I get weighed weekly (it's not WW or any other weight loss thing, it's a study I'm participating in). No one was more surprised than me when I weighed in at 166.5 (that's -2 since last week). In all honesty,... Read more
A question of calories-
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      5 comments

I've just had dinner (and boy was it good!) and I wonder to you all: When you measure out your 2 tbsp of dressing (I used Newman's Own Olive Oil and Vinegar), what about the dressing left at the bottom of your bowl/plate, and the calories therei... Read more

So I've been feeling down today. I have eaten well, and got in some exercise. I began to rearrange some kitchen/living area things that have been displeasing me. I picked a fight with my honey. I am behind on a project in school. I al... Read more

So of course I was totally floored when I finally checked my page and found out I'd received a trophy for my last blog. Wow, and thank you to everyone who liked it and those who chimed in with their comments. I've been on SP about 4 ... Read more
Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts Planning is so important.

The last few days I have only been mediocre. I wasn't tracking, I was being spur of the moment with my meals. Like the rest of my life, I have been very disorganized. I have maintained exercising. Mostly running. I don't exactly have a stre... Read more

Yesterday I took D out to a place called Wheat Berry for lunch/dinner. It's one of those fancy-pants healthy places that sells fresh juices, vegan and raw options, as well as a few meat-eater-friendly choices. D ordered a chicken wrap and ... Read more
Meal Planning for Lazy People
Sunday, January 06, 2013      10 comments

I'm not one for planning. I'm disorganized and late for everything. (Sorry, World). It's not that I'm not "good" at it. (I'm not, but that's not the point.) It's that I am also one of those Procrastinator types. (My bad again, World.) I real... Read more

So a few days after the new year I saw the group photo. I knew I was the "fat" one, but thought for sure it wasn't "that bad". I've blurred out faces to protect the innocent (and those who don't know about my SP blog). And here it is: ... Read more
Today I did something I haven't in a long while

Today I logged the couple of bites I took of canned chicken from the sandwich I was making for my partner. For a while already I have been ignoring these "here n there" bites, but no more. You know what I notice the most about my weight ga... Read more

I just wanna
Sunday, November 18, 2012      4 comments

Go back three months and twelve pounds ago. I'm a bit frustrated but that's to be expected. And really, what did I expect eating frozen pizzas and Halloween candy for a month? Today I ran a bit and counted all the calories. Tomorrow I w... Read more
