Off to a rocky November start...

Last week was interesting - I ended up not tracking for 4 or 5 days...and didn't do much cardio to boot. But I knew I was in trouble, so by the end of the week I was slowly getting back in the groove and ended up losing 3 pounds! Woohoo...My b... Read more
Let's start the Winter Challenge
Sunday, November 01, 2009      1 comments

This is it! I've been here 3 months, lost 25 pounds (1/3 of the way to my goal). So I've been trying to figure out how to approach the winter months - those times where I usually sit around a gain weight because it's too cold or too wet to do ... Read more
Sometimes, you just need to get started...the rest takes care of itself.

This morning was interesting, from a mental standpoint. I woke up this morning, having prepared myself the night before for walking 4 miles with the WATP fat burning dvd, then rolled over after my alarm clock went off and slept for another hour... Read more
Embracing Pizza
Sunday, October 18, 2009      5 comments

I just have to confess - I just ate an entire Amy's frozen pizza - and not the small individual ones either! Basically, I just downed 3 servings of yumminess, even if the crust was a bit crispy for my taste. And here's the kicker - that was lu... Read more
Down, but not out.

Well, tricky week this! I was doing great until Wednesday night when I left the office feeling the sore throat that always bodes ill. Went home, took some garlic, tea and Vitamin C. Took a day of rest, more garlic, tea and vitamin C. Limited... Read more

Wow! Doing great! Lost 18.8 pounds so far - almost below that 200lb marker - next week's weigh-in will be a whole new set of numbers for me! This is also my 25% marker, so I'm a quarter of the way there! WooHoo!! Thank you SparkPeople - I d... Read more
I did it!

I gave myself a new commitment - I joined Curves this week and had my first training on the circuit today - it felt great! 3-4 times a week and I think I'll make it through winter without gaining, as I traditionally do! I also bought some walk... Read more
I really can do this!

It's been a challenge, but I know now that I really can do this. Not only can I do it, but I can lose more than I originally planned. I've lost nearly 15 pounds and realized - that's ALREADY 25% of my goal. My goal was 160, but let's face it,... Read more
Back at it again...after a very stressful week.
Monday, September 14, 2009      0 comments

Well, it's been a while - I was off SP most of last week - just too much work and didn't want to spend every waking minute on the computer. Staying up late left me too tired to work out much, and ended up eating to cope with the stress - not wa... Read more
Well, the summer is over...

LOL! I spent the Labor Day weekend watching it rain, hearing about tornadoes touching down in Enumclaw, and listening to the sounds of my upstairs bathroom floor getting torn out. All in all, not bad! I finished one book and got halfway throu... Read more
Keeping it short today...

Had a great walk at lunch - I remembered a small trail that's a block over from work and it was a quick 10 minute hike uphill, plus another 15 minutes to get there and back again to the office. Shorter than normal, but good exertion and very pe... Read more
Measurements of Success...
Wednesday, September 02, 2009      1 comments

Today is one month - I joined SP on 8/2. I took my body measurements and lost 1 inch off the waist, 2 inches off the hips! My pants aren't so snug and by next summer, they'll all be donated. Goals not achieved yet - consistent exercise bo... Read more
Wow...almost went over the top today...

Of course, lunch was just a guesstimate - went out for Thai food and had ginger tofu. Only ate about 1/2 the rice, most of the sauce stayed on the plate, and had it with tofu. I ate all the veggies, but still, the tofu added a lot of calories.... Read more
Feeling slow tonight...

I only did 20 minutes of cardio today - my walk at lunch. Feeling tired - woke up in the middle of the night about 5 minutes before someone blew a couple of boxes of fireworks (I didn't have it nearly as bad as my co-worker who was 2 houses dow... Read more
I am exhausted...

And I didn't even exercise today! Between a near meltdown at Mass this morning with my son to countless hours on my feet preparing food for the week, and not even getting it all done (no veggie packs yet), I'm tired. JP has been pushing button... Read more
