March it out
Tuesday, March 31, 2015      3 comments

I have been challenged to write down my meal plan and to write out a plan for when a bad day strikes. Both of these are tough tasks because they require me to be honest about my intentions with food. I know, choose your hard, right? Th... Read more

This week's BLC goal has been mental toughness. I am all lip service and no actual muscle on this topic. I have all the Weight Watchers mottos memorized. But I never forgive myself. So this blog is about a time I had the courage t... Read more

Another day, another good effort

I worked out again today. Again, it wasn't easy to rearrange my day around getting sweaty, when to shower, how to get other things done, but I did the workout. Yesterday a magazine came in the mail that proclaims on its cover a plan to lose... Read more
What I did right today

Truth be told, I haven't actively exercised in nearly three weeks beyond my regular walks with my baby. And my eating has been heavy on the sweets for longer than I can count now. But today, I tried to make some healthier efforts. So h... Read more

Tuesday, July 26, 2011      1 comments

Remember that 10,000 Maniacs song? "So their minds are soft and lazy. Well, hey, give 'em what they want." That's what went through my head yesterday. Rewind: A couple of weeks ago, I get an email from a co-worker that we will n... Read more

The other day, I stepped on my scale at home and found the number to be quite acceptable. Lower than I expected, really. I thought to myself as I walked out of the room, "I'm so proud of you, Baby," and patted my belly bulge. I'm kind ... Read more
