I will admit that I've been doing a good job the past couple of weeks at planning my meals. At least during the week that is, I don't know what happens on weekends. When I go to work each day I pack breakfast, lunch, and two snacks. All perfectl... Read more

I told myself I was going to work out yesterday and I actually did so. I knew I wasn't going to my gym since I had to cook dinner and since I catch the bus, I would waste time getting there and getting back. So I decided to go to the gym in my b... Read more
Starting over...again

It's late so I won't write much. I'm starting this process all over again. I regained the weight and am just now making some actual effort to get it off again. I'm afraid of the failure again and perhaps that's why I haven't acted. Today was a d... Read more

I made it to 160 a week behind schedule, but I made it. My next goal is to get to 150. I'm at 158 now and I want to get there by 4/20. I'm also going to try to focus more on strength training so I can build some sexy muscle and be stronger. I... Read more

Today was weigh in day... I weigh 162 now...two pounds from my goal. I really can't believe I lost 3 pounds this week; I only worked out twice. I think it was because I decreased my calories. I have one week to lose two pounds. Seems easy en... Read more

I thought about making this blog private, but I figured, why not showed the world that I screwed up. And that I'm trying to bounce back from it. This week was the worst yet. I slipped up both in food and exercise choices. I started off Monday... Read more

Today was another day where I didn't completely stay on track. I went to the gym and worked my butt off, but a bad food made it into my mouth today. I had a banana loaf at Starbucks, which clocked in at 460 cals and 24g of fat. I was hoping i... Read more

The past few days, I've done some bad eating. Milkshakes on Friday and today, and I went out to eat yesterday and had some big portions and fried ice cream (but I split it). Today I had an Italian sandwich from Potbelly and a vanilla shake, al... Read more

After only two weeks of working out, I've noticed that I'm becoming more fit. On the elliptical today I had problems staying above 80% of my max heart rate. So tomorrow I'll either up my level or try a new program. Hopefully I can find one th... Read more

I lost another 2.6 pounds this week, putting me at 166.6. I also lost nearly another percentage point of body fat. I was floored. I thought I would gain since I started strength training this week. I want to work out even harder now at the gy... Read more

I went with a friend today for lunch since I haven't seen her in a while. We decided to go to Ruby Tuesday since she had a taste for a Turkey Burger. There was a picture of their Asian Glazed Salmon on the menu, and it looked really good. Aft... Read more

I ran a mile today--- without stopping to walk. For some reason today I felt like getting on the treadmill, which is odd because I hate the treadmill. I used to hate that day in gym where we had to run a mile. I was always one of the straggle... Read more

But I didn't have any!!! I munched on celery sticks instead. I was proud of myself. I resisted the temptation well. I knew I didn't want to go over there and try just one because I knew that would result in me shoving three slices of pizza an... Read more

On the way home from the gym, I decided to get dinner. I knew I didn't feel like cooking. So I had made up my mind between Subway or Smart Chili. I decided to go for Subway, but somehow on the way there I got lost and ended up at Boston Marke... Read more

So today was weigh in day... I lost 0.2 lbs. BIg whoop. I had a feeling this was going to be one of those weeks where I busted my butt and it didn't show on the scale. Now I know what the Purple team feels like on Biggest Loser. I guess I can... Read more
