I've always been overweight. Well, not always. Since I was about 8 I started getting overweight and have been overweight since. I can't remember ever wearing a size in a single digit and I don't think I've ever been considered "the pretty one" ... Read more

Today is a new day and I'm determined to be my best this week. This weekend was rough and I ate way too many bad things. Ugh. Horrible feeling. So now I'm determined to make this my best week yet with regards to my weight loss efforts.... Read more

Ugh. So I'm sitting here on the couch at 6:30 in the morning on a Saturday. I don't even wake up this early on a weekday! Why am I awake, you ask? I'm still not entirely sure. I woke up at 5:30 this morning in a lot of pain and it hasn't quite g... Read more

I didn't go to the gym yesterday. I had a meeting for work on the other side of town and by the end of it my brain was so fried I didn't want to function. But I kept my calorie count towards to lower end of my caloric intake recommendation to ma... Read more

Yesterday was great! I did my 5k training for 48 minutes and kept my calorie count in check. At the end of the day I was still short about 400 calories so what did I do? Well, probably not the best choice, but I ate a piece of cake. It didn't ha... Read more

This weekend was great! We didn't go to NASA but we went to the Bush Memorial Library in College Station which was surprisingly enjoyable! For the most part I felt very good about my exercise, eating and sleeping. The problem came yesterday when... Read more

I finally hit my food goal! I stayed within my calorie guidelines and after dinner left the table quickly so that I wasn't tempted to eat another piece of french bread. I felt a bit of the joy of success. It's been really hard for me to stay in ... Read more
Climbing a mountain

I feel like my weight loss journey is a bit like climbing a mountain. Not impossible, but a bit difficult. Yesterday I went to go exercise for the first time in a few weeks (I was sick and then my best friend was in town and I'm one of those hos... Read more

Monday, June 27, 2011      1 comments

Why is it so hard to track food/exercise, much less eat better on the weekends and exercise? This past weekend was a bust, but I'm determined to be good this upcoming weekend- Fourth of July, out-of-town and all!... Read more

My arms are tired and I can't tell you how happy that makes me! I've recently been sick and haven't really gotten back into the full swing of exercising daily and it's been a while since I've done strength training. But earlier this week I decid... Read more

Yesterday I was really worried about my trip to Hard Rock Cafe for a business dinner. I looked up their menu and picked what looked safest. Imagine my enjoyment when there were healthier options not listed on their website! I had lettuce wraps w... Read more

Today I was beating myself up because I ate a piece of cake last night. It was my sister-in-law's birthday and the cake and I were having a showdown until the cake won. I was putting the nutritional information in and realizing that tonight I ha... Read more
