My fiance is taking me to Miami in April...YAY, right? Wrong! Instead of thinking of the amazing time we will have relaxing on the beach and dancing the night away, all I can think about is how fat I am compared to all those beautiful women in... Read more
Back to working out
Wednesday, January 18, 2012      2 comments

After about 7 days without a workout, I forced myself to get on the treadmill. It felt good! I only did 30 minutes (walk 4/jog1) because anything harder makes me starving hungry later. My new mini-goal is to make it through the end of this mo... Read more
Achieving consistency

I'm always impressed by the SparkPeople who are able to be consistent enough in their plans to achieve major goals - like losing 100 pounds, or running a marathon. It's amazing to me that they are able to resolve to change and then ACTUALLY DO ... Read more

I had a choice in the morning, I could have logged into SparkPeople and read some articles, logged in my meals for the day using the nutrition reports. I could have read some motivational blogs and been motivated. But I didn't. Instead, I... Read more

Today I'm sitting here dreading my workout because strength training is on the agenda. Cardio is easy (or at least easier) for me. But I've been reading so many articles about how important strength training is, and how it is the key to improv... Read more

I'm about a month and a half into a serious effort to lose weight and adopt healthy lifestyle changes (consistent healthy eating; exercise). Starting out, I had high hopes of losing 2 pounds each week and reaching my goal weight by the end of F... Read more

I overate by about 600 calories yesterday. The good thing is that I ate mostly healthy calories over my plan (walnuts, greek yogurt, Atkins bar). Last night I was tired and knew I should have just gone to bed, but instead, I reached for the fo... Read more
Another good day so far : )

So far so good today. I still don't feel super motivated, but I'm "going through the motions" of eating healthy and doing my workout. I'm shooting for consistency, and I hope that the weight loss will come. Bob Harper says, "Believe in yourse... Read more

At the beginning of last month, I was SUPER motivated to stay on my eating/exercise plan for 30 days...then after 11 days, I fell off my wagon. Since then, I've told myself every day that this is another fresh start and opportunity to get back ... Read more

Yesterday I was still experiencing symptoms from the flu, so I did not do my workout, and instead of eating the lentil soup I had planned to eat, I ate a slice of leftover homemade apple pie. I stayed within my calorie limit, but the empty calo... Read more

The last couple of weeks have been a rollercoaster. The stress of the holidays really took a toll on my eating plan. I succombed to all of the holiday treats I was trying to avoid, and binged a few times : ( Then, my whole family came down wi... Read more
Back on track...AGAIN : )

Okay so I completely went off of my program over the past few days. I had a ten day streak, then fell off hard (binging on sweets), and it has been very hard to get back on track. I think the disappointment of failing to meet my 30 day goal ha... Read more
It's day 13 and I'm getting back on my plan
Tuesday, December 13, 2011      2 comments

I am disappointed to report that I fell off the wagon pretty hard over the last two days, binge eating fast food, muffins, and other sweets : ( It started with a trip to the mall with my family. I wasn't prepared for the temptation in the food... Read more
It's Day 11 and I'm back on track!
Sunday, December 11, 2011      1 comments

I am disappointed to report that yesterday I went 500 calories over the 1200 goal and also did not work out. In the past, going over my calories would have meant a full on binge with all the sugary and salty snacks in the pantry. I am proud to... Read more
Day Ten has been tough...but I'm still on track with the eating plan : )

Today was super hard. I got up early and made my fiancé a breakfast platter with bacon and cheesy eggs. The smell of the crispy bacon was overwhelming alone, but I was able to resist it and had my usual oatmeal and green tea. I wanted to take ... Read more
