A Mixed Week
Monday, April 01, 2013      1 comments

Here am I, one week into the 're-focused me' with mixed results. During the week things went pretty smoothly. I managed to keep away from evening snacking, went to my scheduled Thursday bootcamp and had a great kettle bell workout and then... Read more

Tuesday no snacking! I ended yesterday comfortably in the low end of my caloric range. I am determined to get through this week without a major snack attack and so far I've been able to talk myself out of any extras. It feels good t... Read more

The good news is that I've lost 16 pounds in the last 12 weeks. The bad news is that I've gained 13 pounds in the last 12 weeks. I can list a bunch of things going on that have contributed to this lack of progress, the long (and still en... Read more

So, in my readings the other day I came across some helpful things on a site called Green Mountain at Fox Run. I really don't know much about the site itself, but there were lots of articles that I found interesting including this open letter a... Read more

I don't even know where to begin. I do know that I need to start over and I'm trying to figure out exactly what that looks like. I've been reading some articles about mindful eating over the last couple of days and I feel like that level of aw... Read more

Where did the time go? The good: - I've been out on my bike (finally) but it would be better if the weather would smarten up around here. It's still 0 and 2 here every night! - We're about to leave on 2 weeks of vacation - a driving tr... Read more
February already?
Saturday, February 02, 2008      1 comments

I can't believe it's already February. January was reasonably busy and it seems to have flown right by. I lost 1.7 pounds in January which is pretty big considering my track record since September. I feel like things are coming together a bit... Read more

Well, it's friday and the week has gradually improved as it's gone along. I've been doing better on snacking and food control in general and I feel like I can do this again. Tonight is my work Christmas party so I'm already trying to plan ... Read more
Weighing in
Tuesday, November 20, 2007      3 comments

So today I weighed in and I've gained. Not surprising. The thing I find the most curious is that I feel like crap when I see that number on the scale and yet I can't seem to remind myself of those feelings when I'm cruising the pantry or fridg... Read more

Today I just feel BLAH. I hope I'm not coming down with something. I've had a stiff shoulder since saturday and this morning my hips and my right side (ribs) are also sore. I'm not sure if I'm sleeping too soundly or if this kink in my sh... Read more
Portion Control is my downfall
Sunday, November 18, 2007      1 comments

Ever since we've been back from holidays I've been struggling with portion control. I KNOW I'm eating too much - sometimes it's snacking but a lot of the time it's just going overboard on filling my plate. This week I'm going to go through the... Read more
Going along ok
Friday, October 19, 2007      2 comments

Well, I'm going along ok. I've exercised 5 days in the last 7, I've started drinking my water again, I've been tracking (a bit but not with dedication) and I'm snacking less at work. The days that I've tracked I've been over, sometime... Read more

Well, I felt so much better with my cold this morning that I decided to get in some exercise. I started with some warm up step-ups and then decided to do some intervals so I did 50 step ups, then marched in place while my rate came down, th... Read more
