I have not been that great about exercise. Yesterday I woke up and got a bug up my butt to go hiking!! Yay! Yes, I don't exercise much so I'll go from sitting on couch at 5,335 ft to 5,800 ft and then hike to 6,340 ft. Ugh! My knees were gr... Read more

I love working of course because I need money...a lot! Eek! But I also like working for my gut. Two weeks ago I lost several pounds while working. I had a week between jobs and totally stalled the diet. I tend to ask Andy if he wants to... Read more

I could have eaten better today. I almost had that feeling this evening that, screw it, the day was a loss anyway so where's the cheese? But I calmed that voice down, drank some water, and reminded myself that a big lunch with a shake today is... Read more

Soooo, apparently if you don't intend to eat like it's your last meal at a bbq (which may be how you often approach bbqs of the past all yummy picnic table buffet style) then you shouldn't drink like you used to either. On Saturday I had a ... Read more

So first I'd like to say that the fact that my birthday becomes less and less of something that anyone cares about every year makes me sad...but silver lining, I did not eat my weight in candy to combat the sad. I'm not sure how to state ... Read more

So last time when I actually lost weight it was Slim-Fast that did it for me. This time I said I didn't want to do it that way since obviously it failed and all came back. On further inspection, what failed was after I lost the weight I kept c... Read more

Too much or too little...

...there is no gray area for me. If I'm not counting calories I eat everything in sight and balloon up. If I do count calories suddenly I can't get enough calories in the day to be healthy! As it stands I need to go have an evening snack of a... Read more

I exercised today, I ate well although I really need to get more fiber in my diet, and I felt good about myself. I honestly think what helped get so much done was starting a team. While the team is a subset of a Ravelry group I still feel like... Read more
