The scale has not shown my heart
Tuesday, February 21, 2012      1 comments

We have a biggest loser challenge at work. It's started at the beginning of the year. THe first couple of weeks I only lost a few lb s here and there. I'm a big girl and need to lose a minimum of 75 lbs, just to get to normal fat. I expected ... Read more
So here I am again

So here i am again, back at a weight and size I thought I wouldn't see again. Fortunately I didn't gain it all but, but definitely enough to make me realize it's time to go back to what works. I need to go back to logging all of my food, even ... Read more
Admitting the failures of the weekend
Tuesday, July 20, 2010      2 comments

Eating was so unhealthy this weekend, hence no blogs/posts of any kind. Saturday was scrapbook day and it was pizza, breaded baked shrimp, popcorn chicken , caesar salad, berry custard pie, veggie tray and fresh pineapple. Sunday I got u... Read more
The month is half over

yet I haven't made any progress. I've been yo-yoing since April, the same 5-7 lbs. Today was a bit different though. For the first time this year I got up on a non boot camp day and worked out. ok, it wasn't really long, since it was late.... Read more

Ok, so the scale was up today. Not really surprised given my recent transgressions with cookies. Plus instead of my planned dinner last night I ended up having 2 double cheeseburger minus the buns from Wendys last night. Boot camp was go... Read more
Aren't Sundays supposed to be restful?

Mine just wasn't. Ok, today was just crazy the way life sometimes gets. It started with the scale only moving 1/2 lb. This would have been ok if I just watched what I ate yesterday, but I ate decent and did bootcamp and a 13 mile bike ... Read more

but they went awry. I did make it to bootcamp this morning. I was hoping to get in a walk today but it so DID NOT happen. One of my walking buddies couldn't walk. DIdn't hear from the other one. Then I decided I wasn't going to walk the dogs s... Read more
My body is TALKING

I went to boot camp yesterday at 545. It started off with a walk jog, followed by some weight circuits, then some interval training. I was being a big brave puppy dog and was using 30/35 lbs for 2 arm rows and squats. What was I thinking. T... Read more

Thank God it's Friday. I made it to boot camp this morning. Our warmup was a 5 minute jog. I actually jogged for the whole thing. That's a major accomplishment for me. Work was crazy as all be, BUT I didn't not eat a doughnut (today was nat... Read more
Slacking on Blogs
Thursday, June 03, 2010      0 comments

I've been slacking on my blogs and I know it. I always want to wait until I have enough time to write a soliloquy about everything that's going on (after all it's life and something is ALWAYS going on) and the food battles that go with it. Then ... Read more

I walked at Race for a Cure. It was 5K. I would have tried shuffle jogging (my own version of running) part of it, but I was with a friend of mine. All of us still made ok time at around an hour and that includes all the people jumping in front... Read more
Man, can I do this
Tuesday, May 18, 2010      2 comments

It's been an interesting couple of days, coupled with an interesting year, but I guess that's how life is. I haven't fully adjusted to that. I guess it is a lesson I have to learn. I realized I get mean, evil and short when I get tired or try no... Read more
Commitment Again
Sunday, May 16, 2010      1 comments

Ok, so here I am yet again. I recommit to my healthy journey. I have to keep recommitting because I keep falling off the wagon. Somehow I look up and I let all these things that aren’t good for me and that I’ve given up back onto my plate. They ... Read more
I finally saw a new number
Friday, April 23, 2010      2 comments

The scale finally moved. It said 260 today. That was the first time the scale said that since high school. I've been trying to get to the 50s since December, some how it hasn't happen. Yes I recognize it's still not the 50s, but it's closer. P... Read more

I have mastered maintaining my current weight. LOL, i've been the same range since October. I know some of the changes I need to make, but I haven't been willing to make them. Up until now. Today my pastor called on a corporate fast from br... Read more
