ZOMA99's Blogs

I'm not sure if I want to stick around SparkPeople. I feel like all I do here is read a ton of myths and misinformation and feel compelled to defend carbs against the craziness that is low-carb dieting. I just don't think this is the sit... Read more
reading low-carb blogs
Thursday, March 29, 2012     

I was researching some diet stuff and came across a low-carb/paleo blog I used to read when I was experimenting with the paleo diet a few years ago. So out of curiosity, I started reading through more recent posts, and to my surprise the author... Read more
Feel like raving..

I'm just still in utter amazement at how great the McDougall way of eating is. I wish there wasn't this pervasive carb-o-phobia fad infecting so many people; I find it so disheartening to read the nutrition message board here and see so many my... Read more

Today's weight: 125.4 Lowest weight since before I got pregnant with #3. I'm starting to shift my focus away from weight. There's nothing magical about the number I chose as my goal weight; I picked 123 because it was in between 120 and 125, ... Read more

Today is my youngest child's birthday; my baby is three now. :) I'm baking a vegan chocolate cake, and my teenage daughter is going to make some non-vegan red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. Everyone should be happy. I lost a... Read more

I read a post last night on the WholeHealthSource blog (a low-carb/paleo friendly blog, no less) that debunks the whole sugar and starch is fattening theory. Turns out that sugar in and of itself is not fattening at all. Drinking soda is, and ... Read more
Weigh-in Day

129.2 this morning. That's a BMI of 20.2 which is almost where I want to be (I have a small frame). My goal now is to really work on lowering my body fat and looking more muscular. My body shape is such that I tend to hang on to fat in ... Read more
now this is weird
Thursday, February 23, 2012     

I spend way too much time on Pinterest when I should be working (don't worry - I'm self-employed, so I'm not cheating anyone but myself), and people post so many pictures of food there. The weird thing is that these pictures no longer have the ... Read more
200 Squats
Thursday, February 23, 2012     

Last year I started doing the 200 squats program, but I quit after a few weeks. I'm feeling more motivated this year to really get in shape, so I think I'll give 200 squats another try. I just did the initial test and did 80 good form squ... Read more
Nothing new here.

Well, I haven't written here in a while, so thought I'd update...only I don't really have anything to update. Let's see... My husband decided to do the McDougall diet with me, so now he's cooking without oil and limiting how much gua... Read more
Weird but so good!

I just ate a baked sweet potato topped with sauerkraut and spicy mustard, and it was delicious. Sweet potatoes are my new favorite food, and to think I used to not like them at all. Crazy.... Read more
Running progress
Tuesday, February 07, 2012     

I'm slow, but that's okay. I noticed at the gym last night that pretty much everyone can run faster than me. It's alright, though, because I'm improving. I did my personal best so far last night: 3 miles in 45 minutes. Just a couple of weeks ... Read more
Weigh-in Day
Saturday, February 04, 2012     

Down two pounds this week to 130. I'm trying to lose about a pound a week right now because I think that's a reasonably slow weight loss (I think it's true that weight that's lost slowly is easier to keep off than weight that's lost quickly), b... Read more

I'm attempting to take up running. I say 'attempting' because all my previous attempts at running have ended after a short time due to knee pain. This time I'm only going to run on a treadmill (no concrete) and really pay attention to my body ... Read more
Weigh-in Day
Saturday, January 28, 2012     

Down to 132 this morning. This is the lowest weight I've been since 2007 when I briefly followed the McDougall diet after my son (baby #3) was born. My highest weight after baby #4 was 168 - this was almost a year after she was born and about ... Read more
