Week 1 Review
Monday, May 14, 2012      1 comments

Well, I think I blew Week 1 out of the water! I did every exercise I planned every day, except Saturday the walk was kind of less exercise-y than I'd hoped (just walking with the boy, not power-walking or anything) and on Sunday it turned out m... Read more
My Poor Nose
Tuesday, May 08, 2012      0 comments

I titled this entry "My Poor Nose" because at this point my nose must be worn down to the nub from all the grindstones I've pressed it to. Here I am. It's May 2012. I still haven't achieved the weight loss I wanted. So I'm back at it. I... Read more
A rough week
Saturday, January 07, 2012      0 comments

This was my toughest week by far. And the silly part was, there was no reason for it to be tough...nothing at all out of the ordinary schedule-wise. Just another week, for all intents and purposes. But I got all weirded out in the early part,... Read more
New Year, New Me!

I am happy to say that in checking my weight today, I officially made it PAST my checkpoint #4 (see below): I'm under 220! That makes 13 pounds lost since the week before Thanksgiving, and 20 pounds lost this year overall. I know if I keep thi... Read more
Made it through another weekend!
Saturday, December 03, 2011      0 comments

Time away from home is never easy. When you're out of your controlled environment, it can be very tough to maintain your goals. I went away this weekend for an overnight with family....right in the middle of Amish country, which is known for t... Read more
Revisiting the Checkpoints
Tuesday, November 29, 2011      0 comments

Earlier this year, I made some checkpoints for myself--smaller goals that add up to a larger one. Here they are: 1) 230 lbs.--this is 10 lbs. lost 2) 228 lbs.--12 lbs. lost/5% of my total body weight when I started 3) 225 lbs.--the w... Read more
Week 1 accomplished
Monday, November 21, 2011      0 comments

I was surprised by how easily the weight fell off me this past week. Although I didn't end up quite as low as I thought I would (it seems to make a difference when I weigh myself--I can lose as much as a whole pound, maybe a pound and a half if... Read more
My proud moment today
Thursday, November 17, 2011      0 comments

My schedule didn't go the way I expected it to. The event I was attending that was supposed to be done at 1 didn't get done until 2. My plan had been to finish up at 1, then go to my office (30-40 min away) and eat a late lunch there. At 2, I... Read more
One Week - Day 5
Friday, October 28, 2011      0 comments

So this is day 5. I did everything I said I would this week, and I didn't get stressed out at all. I did notice at times I would reach for something I really don't need--an extra sweet, etc.--but I realized it and usually stopped myself. ... Read more
One Week - Day 3/4
Thursday, October 27, 2011      0 comments

Day 2's workout was kind of crazy--my son took a flying leap off the chair behind me and smacked headfirst into one of my hand weights that I was using. He had a goose egg the size of a ping pong ball for awhile! By the next morning, thankfull... Read more
One Week - Day 2
Tuesday, October 25, 2011      1 comments

Day 1 is accomplished. I tracked all my food and I worked out for 20 min. with Turbo Jam (plus a leisurely walk with my son for about 30 min., but I don't really count that as much in the way of exercise because it's such a slow, rambly journey... Read more

This week, I am going to: 1) Journal all my food, every day 2) Exercise for at least 20 min. every day I want to see what kind of impact this has on my overall well-being, including weight. I'm just putting it out there so that it'... Read more
Emotional Eating
Tuesday, August 16, 2011      1 comments

I have noticed since yesterday how strongly my urge to eat becomes when I'm feeling a negative emotion. Yesterday evening, my husband and I had a brief...well, it wasn't really an argument. It was a miscommunication that left us both feeli... Read more
I'm Back! (But I Never Really Left)
Monday, August 15, 2011      0 comments

I know it's been a long time since I logged in here. But I didn't fall off the wagon....not really....I've just been crazy busy! And in a good way. I just got done with 2 weeks of band camp with my colorguard girls. That's 10 days of being o... Read more
Friday, June 24, 2011      2 comments

I think back on my week, and I can't believe I let a whole one go by without really making any effort at all to track my food, and only a minimal effort to work out and eat well. After all my gun-ho attitude, I let my illness last week throw me... Read more
