Getting through April unscathed
Wednesday, April 08, 2009      0 comments

I haven’t been religious about my blogging the past couple of days but there isn’t much to report. The weekend was decent, but not great. I didn’t get any “formal” workout in, but I did enough yard work to make up for it. The next three... Read more
I lost 10 lbs!
Friday, April 03, 2009      3 comments

Hooray!! I reached my first 10 lbs goal. It took longer than I anticipated but I was able to do it while still eating what I want, just in moderation! Reaching that first goal is such a motivator! I cannot wait for my massage. Now, how d... Read more
Making good decisions when eating out.

For going out to eat twice yesterday, I didn’t do all that bad. My boss invited me out to Olive Garden for a co-workers birthday and I really couldn’t say no. I did a bit of research and found that if I went with the soup, salad and breadstick... Read more
1 more pound to first goal!

It seems like every Monday my blog starts off …”I did not do well this weekend”. Ugh, I really need to work on my weekends. I didn’t make it to the gym at all, but I did spend 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday cleaning. Deep cleaning. On hands ... Read more

Another pound down this week making a total of 9. I’m (barely) out of the 220’s which have been a mental stumbling block. I hadn’t been in the 220’s before, let alone almost the 230’s until I decided to suck it up and check my weight. I’m rea... Read more

Yesterday didn’t go as well as I planned. I only got worse as the day went on, despite upgrading to Aleve. At 3:30, I gave up and went home from work. I immediately peeled off my clothes and contacts, got out the heating pad and the makeshift... Read more

This weekend in Chicago, I was NOT good. You know what? I’m ok with it. So far, the scale isn’t showing any damage and after my breakdown last Friday, the weekend (and the food) were a sanity saver. Yesterday was a recovery day and I didn’t ... Read more

Well, I lost a pound today, making a grand total of 8 lbs since the end of January. I am trying so so so hard not to get frustrated. I should be jumping for joy over a pound, especially considering the booze fest in Boston last weekend. Still,... Read more
Plan for dealing with today's calorie land mines
Thursday, March 19, 2009      0 comments

I’m going to have to watch my food extra carefully today. There are many landmines in my path Breakfast: I’m dying. We went to bed a bit later than usual and I can barely keep my eyes open. I am fighting the urge for an extra coffee. Per... Read more

Well, day 2 of the “detox from Boston” diet is going ok, though I have gone a little off track. First, I was craving chocolate chai so I made the little pack (140 cal) since it was in my range. I forgot that it’s full of all sorts of the chemi... Read more
How I did in Boston. (answer: Not well)
Tuesday, March 17, 2009      0 comments

I’m back from our 3 day trip from Boston. I definitely did worse than I would if I were home, but it wasn’t totally horrible terrible either. It wasn’t great, but Old Laura would have done so much worse. Because we were there for a wedd... Read more
No loss, but no gain either.
Friday, March 13, 2009      0 comments

Meh. No change in the weight today. I guess that is better than a gain. I’m not really surprised. While I stayed in my calorie range and reached my work out goals, I just wasn’t feeling it this week. Plus, I woke up with my period (3 days l... Read more
Take a cleansing breath and step away from the cupcake.

Maybe if I move to another country without phones I can get away from my family and not have as many emotional eating triggers. Phew. From almost 1000 miles away, I let them get me balled up in knots because I worry. I wish I could say “F--- ... Read more

The motivation has just not been there this week. Despite that, I am still getting my workouts in and logging my food. I’m just not happy about it. Still, everyone has up and down days (and weeks) and I’m not going to quit because things are g... Read more
5K and weekend wrap.
Monday, March 09, 2009      0 comments

I participated in my first 5K on Friday night, and it left me feeling empowered. I walked it with several other Diva’s and the whole atmosphere swept me away. There were over 1,000 participants and I know the March of Dimes made a great deal of... Read more
