Now with my husband working second shift, both of our lives have been turned kind of upside down. We think we've managed to work out good meal plans that are good for me at home and portable for him at work. We're both still adjusting to yet ano... Read more

I should have seen it coming, but when we agreed to not get anything for each other on Vday I thought I'd make a nice healthy dinner and keep on track. Aaaaand he comes in with asst chocolates and a Reese's PB heart the size of my hand....Reese'... Read more

So yesterday I was doing soooo well...until dinner. Hubs was tired and just wanted to hit Sonic on the way home, I caved and got dinner too. I SHOULD have been more selective and gotten a kid's burger and had veg at home, but nooope I hit the do... Read more
Meal Plotting for 1
Wednesday, February 03, 2016      1 comments

Instead of tracking right before I eat, I laid out my meals for the day and worked out covering at least the minimum basics. Might keep me from straying knowing I've already got my allotted food mapped out for the day. If I added actual exercise... Read more

Wrapping up today and meals have been a rollercoaster, looks like I had 3 meals and snacks when in reality I ate all of that within 2 hrs of each other tonight. Mostly trying to get my numbers in and being full, unable to cram more. Since I went... Read more

Did decent today even through dinner....until the Dread Poppyseed Roll with its henchman Cinnamon Honey Butter reared around. /caved Flipped my usual overages somehow to be over on Fats and Calories, but UNDER Carbs. Did some walking around th... Read more

Of all the days to feed my pms/stress with a loaf, yes the entire 1440cal LOAF, of cinnamon raisin bread, my son texts me to let me know he and his fiancé have decided to up their wedding date. BY A YEAR. As in fifteen weeks from right now. I fi... Read more
I'm finding myself almost scared to eat

We went to lunch with friends on Sunday and the mexican place the pregnant one picked (not me!) has serving sizes that would choke a buffalo. I'm not joking, the shredded beef burrito I get from this place is literally the size of a slightly squ... Read more
BMI, like age, is just a number......
Saturday, May 26, 2012      0 comments

I've been struggling with the notion that "to be healthy", I MUST reach this magical number as dictated by blah blah blah. I'm no athlete by a long stretch nor will I ever be, but not landing on a BMI of 25 won't kill me. It's almost as bad as s... Read more

It's amazing how the little things can be so huge. After Tuesday's gamer-night-into-day sodium/soda binge (coupled with 3 days of no workouts), I noticed my feet were a "lil puffy" (as in you could almost lose a fingertip in poking the swelling)... Read more

Monday's strength training session went well and I went back to the Y later that afternoon to hit the treadmill again, totaling over an hour walking for the day. No nap meant I was awake from wee hours Monday a.m til omg-30 p.m. TUESDAY. I passe... Read more

I've always said I don't want to lose weight, I want to lose MASS. People that say "Muscle weighs more than fat" make me want bash my face against a wall. I inevitably can't restrain myself from responding with, "A pound of muscle and a pound o... Read more

I've had a few really bad "tired" days in a row. REALLY didn't want to go to the Y tonight, but did just shy of an hour at a good pace on the treadmill. Hoping tomorrow's strength training set-up goes well and I can better mix up my workouts. I'... Read more
Of all the things.....
Sunday, May 06, 2012      0 comments

Figured out I need 308 calories per "meal" (I aim for five) to hit my minimum recommended intake. Never thought it'd be so damn hard to get in ENOUGH calories. I eat a lot of frozen dinners simply for the multiple conveniences - fully recyclable... Read more
