Daycare Day 1
Wednesday, October 05, 2016      0 comments

The challenge I face is do I work fewer days in a 14day pay period, be away from my family one weekend and be gone longer hours when I'm away from them. Or, do I work more days in a pay period but have the weekends with my family and work s... Read more
Back to Work
Wednesday, September 28, 2016      0 comments

Yesterday was a sad momentous day. I'm back to work. My daughter is 18w old and I had my first shift back. I'm an RN so am on my feet all day - I walked 4.2 miles at work. I have my phone in my pocket, which doesn't sink with SP sadly. I don't... Read more
Almost 12 lbs down -- success -- with some struggles too this week...
Saturday, September 24, 2016      4 comments

I've had a rough few of days of eating, and it's been a tough week. But being mindful has meant that my poor eating isn't as poor as it could be. And, the scale is still creeping downwards. I'm 11.8 pounds down, and am feeling like I'm in s... Read more
The lowest has been broken!
Friday, September 16, 2016      5 comments

Today I did an official weigh in and was below my lowest, so I've lost a full 10 lbs and I saw a number I haven't seen in a while. It gives me so much confidence and I feel good to be finally doing something for *ME*, and I'm finally starting to... Read more
Holding Steady and it's a WIN!!!
Wednesday, September 14, 2016      3 comments

I've mentioned before that once I hit the lowest weight I've seen since before I conceived my 2 1/2 year old, I'd start believing that my metabolism isn't totally shot and it will let me lose the weight I've been carrying. I hit that weight... Read more
8.2 Pounds!
Wednesday, September 07, 2016      2 comments

That's what I've lost since my husband and I started this journey together. He's motived for his own reasons and isn't tracking his weight, but is showing lots of success too. I'm so proud of him. I'm so proud of me too. I'm not letting mys... Read more

For a total of 7.4lbs!!! I'm slowly coming around to the idea that what I'm doing right now is working for me. I'm not going too low in my calories, but I breastfeeding so I'm also trying to not be hungry. I'm tracking everything, my husband ... Read more
Garden Bounty
Sunday, September 04, 2016      2 comments

I have a long term goal: get to a point where my garden provides the vegetables my family needs throughout the year. We aren't anywhere near there yet, but one day will get there. Every year it's more productive and I'm learning all the time ho... Read more
Emotional Eating
Sunday, September 04, 2016      3 comments

It's been a rough day, but I've still tracked. I definitely emotionally ate (finished a chocolate bar - 60g of it, and the database has that quantity listed as containing 560g of protein - I'm chuckling about that). But I'm not too far off ... Read more
Do NOT Parent my child!!!
Friday, September 02, 2016      0 comments

😡😡😡😡😡 and apparently my death glare didn't get that point across. I wish I was able to give some sarcastic retort to the old woman in IKEA who decided to parent my son for grabbing something as she was walking past, but I was so shocked I ... Read more
When cravings hit...
Friday, September 02, 2016      0 comments

I've had days this week with more energy than today. I re-started a little bit of caffeine and so far my baby seems to handle it okay. My husband feels like he has his normal wife back rather than me constantly being exhausted. Today was more t... Read more
And back down... Plus a long reflection...
Thursday, September 01, 2016      0 comments

Well as I described in my last post, my weight had jumped up several pounds in just a few days. Not possible given I haven't overeaten by THAT much or been suddenly THAT inactive. So it was water weight, which given how much salt I'd had ov... Read more
Down and back up...
Tuesday, August 30, 2016      1 comments

As I mentioned in another post, I will feel more confident that I'm having success once I see a downward trend that's below my 'range of flux'. And I stepped on the scale today and my weight was up. I can recognize that the bacon I ate I ou... Read more
