Sooo, as of June I had lost 100lbs. June marked the completion of a full year of change. I kept going and dropped a few more pounds, fitness and eating were going well. And then, I broke a toe, even that didn't slow me down. I kept up with runni... Read more

So, last week I wrote about being sort of stuck. This week I tried really hard to track and to up my exertion while exercising. I ran 5-7k every other day and hit the gym every day almost. Well, that plus the lack of hormonal bloating pushed ... Read more

I know I have made some very big accomplishments but staring at the ounces I have lost over the last couple of weeks has me a little annoyed. You see, just ounces are actually all I should have lost. I have been slack about tracking, I misse... Read more

I can't figure out how to make my spark profile recalculate my caloric needs. I know how to change the number of calories to burn etc. It has occurred to me that my second job is very active. I am a night time stock person so I am constantly on... Read more

I was at Costco yesterday and saw a cute pair of pants that roll up into Capris. I decided to buy them in a size 12 with the commitment to fit into them in time for capri weather. Well, I tried them on last night and they fit, and fit well with ... Read more

Thursday, February 17, 2011      3 comments

So, I seem to be settling back into routine. The healthy active routine, not the injured and forced to be lazy routine! Last week I watched the scale slowly rise. I knew it was in response to my hormones and a certain visitor I was expecting ... Read more

I injured my back on January 1st. Apparently I dislocated my pelvis. It has been a very painful journey but I think I may be ready to hit the gym again for some gentle exercise. I was really worried about the outcome of my injury weight wise. I ... Read more

As it turns out, I was on it all along. I guess perhaps the journey isn't as obviously bumpy as it used to be! I thought my tumble off of the wagon would happen when I went on vacation but I managed to keep focused. I exercised plenty and did... Read more

I have been battling something all week. It hasn't won yet, I am still holding it off. In a way I wish it would either win or move on! I have scaled back on the exercise a bit and that seems to have given me the upper hand. I need to kick t... Read more

I am an organizer by nature! The beginning changes have spiralled. At first it was a plan to become healthier, that turned into a plan to take back my life. I wanted to back away from all of the stress. It was work related stress. A job that wa... Read more

I can't wait to feel better! I have maintained the 2lb loss I experienced last week but haven't managed to move any weight this week. Usually when the kids go back to school we get a cold or virus that goes along with it--this year it just se... Read more
