Nutrisystem, Korea, and Miscellany
Monday, November 21, 2016      1 comments

I'm back from Korea, and apparently up 0.4 pounds. However, as I'll get to in a moment, I think that's partially water retention and buffet remnants, and it's also partially hormonal. I am not too concerned about it, except that I am not going t... Read more

An Almost Success & Upcoming Travel
Friday, November 11, 2016      0 comments

Let's start with the good news! I got a new battery in the scale and it's down 0.6. It's not huge, but I will take it. Yay! The bad news is, I'm officially not going to make my 20 pound goal before my trip tomorrow unless I cut off a hand,... Read more

My relay race was on Saturday and I am so happy I did it! It took a lot of training for me but I conquered that sucker even better than I expected. I told our team captain to expect a 12:30/mile. Instead: ... Read more
Apple Overload!
Thursday, November 03, 2016      5 comments

I went to an orchard last weekend and got a half bushel of apples. If you don't know what a half bushel is, let me tell you - IT IS A CRAP TON OF APPLES. So I went to work right away, making four batches of applesauce and an apple cake. An... Read more
Oh Hey Skinny Jeans
Wednesday, November 02, 2016      3 comments

A week or two ago, I went through the giant stack 'o jeans and found that all the 12s are fitting. But I did not tackle the few pairs of skinny jeans I own because that seemed like asking for disappointment. But this morning ... I tried two of t... Read more

Numbers Will Drive You Crazy
Friday, October 28, 2016      5 comments

I 'officially' weigh in on Sundays. I shouldn't weigh myself every day because I'll drive myself nuts. Case in point: Sunday: 175.8 Monday: 177.2 Tuesday: 178.4 Wednesday: 177.0 Friday: 174.8 Seriously? *Obviously* I'm ho... Read more
Closet Shopping ... & Eating (Not in the Closet)
Thursday, October 27, 2016      6 comments

I have a giant stack of jeans in my closet ranging from size 10 to 16. Every once in awhile after weight loss/gain, I go through them. Yesterday I realized the 10s are still too small. That's not very surprising. But all the 12s are workin... Read more
Getting Better
Tuesday, October 25, 2016      2 comments

Last night I took both a unisom and an ibuprofin, went to bed at 9PM, and didn't get up for 10 solid hours. I FEEL LIKE A NEW WOMAN! My back does still hurt a bit, but it feels a whole lot better than it did yesterday. I had my first (ever... Read more
4 Miles of Fun! Or Pain. Whatever.
Monday, October 24, 2016      2 comments

Yesterday, I did the Go Time Fitness Challenge. It's about a 4 mile course with (apparently, I didn't count) 25 fitness stations along the way. I knew the run would be OK. I also knew the stations would be OK as they're all things we do in boot ... Read more
Surprise Calories!
Thursday, October 20, 2016      1 comments

I'm counting calories. And doing Nutrisystem part time now. NS breakfasts are super easy. Grab something from the box or the freezer, add in some greek yogurt, and you're done for about 250 calories, tops. But last night we had a fundraiser for ... Read more
Frustration & Acceptance
Wednesday, October 19, 2016      4 comments

I know I'm doing the right things. I am counting calories, increasing my protein, lowering my carbs, exercising regularly, sleeping well, and I've built a shrine to the weight loss gods in my closet. OK that last part is a joke but seriously I k... Read more

A Loss is a Loss is a Loss
Monday, October 17, 2016      1 comments

I went to visit family for a few days. Ate too much, but at least I ran 6 miles one day while I was there. It wasn't too off the rails except it was all restaurant meals and high fat and high sodium and not at all helpful for weight loss. But! A... Read more
