This Isn't A Sprint. It's A Marathon.
Wednesday, May 22, 2013      1 comments

To say it's been a rough month would be an understatement. To say my exercising hasn't slackened off or that my food choices haven't occasionally been unhealthy as a result would be a lie. But I haven't quit. I'm still getting back on the horse ... Read more

Rewards Update

So far I have completed both Step 1 and Step 2 of my exercise plan. I suffered an oops week (that I made up for) and a sick week (when I still managed 4 days of exercise), but overall I did pretty well, I think. I'm still chugging along and tha... Read more
Day 64
Sunday, April 28, 2013      1 comments

Day 64 So here's the thing: I haven't been tracking my exercise on Spark People recently, because I've either been too busy or too tired, but I HAVE been exercising. I haven't cheated on my nutrition rules/goals, either. I thought I was d... Read more

Half Way Through Step 2
Sunday, March 31, 2013      1 comments

Okay, so I made my list of new nutrition goals. And really they are goals not rules. My goals take the form of substituting convenience snacks for healthy snacks. I made a whole list of ideas and I'm working on stocking our pantry and fridge wit... Read more
Second Week of Step 2
Thursday, March 28, 2013      1 comments

Well, I had a minor uh-oh my first week in Step 2. (See "The Ugly Truth" post for explanation.) I had a reactive perspective of my exercising and it back-fired. In other words, I had been viewing my exercise as, "Well, I'll just squeeze it in at... Read more

Tonight I am feeling great! Don't get me wrong. I'm exhausted. But I feel great, because I feel HEALTHIER! Today I took my kids to the zoo. We spent three hours walking around studying animals (telling him to get off the fence), reading si... Read more
Half-Awake Update
Wednesday, March 20, 2013      2 comments

Okay I know I promised a more detailed post, but life has me flying by the seat of my pants right now and I thought another quickie was better than nothing. I hit my 4 week mark this past weekend and I forgot to weigh myself - I was THAT busy. ... Read more

What?!
Monday, March 04, 2013      4 comments

So I wasn't planning to weigh myself until the end of Step 1, buuuuuuut last night curiosity got the better of me and, figuring I wouldn't see any change at all, went ahead and dragged out the scale anyway. Guess what? I LOST 4 POUNDS... Read more
Day 15 Check In (My first birthday celebration)
Sunday, March 03, 2013      2 comments

So first of all, I apparently miscounted somewhere along the way because my "Day 10 Check In" post was actually written on day 11. Anyway now that that is cleared up... This is my Day 15 check in. I think I'm doing pretty great actually. ... Read more

Hello. Already late and I still have work to do, so I'll keep this short and sweet. I have been keeping up with my exercising and sticking to my rules. Although I did 30 minutes of exercise yesterday, but forgot to do my crunches, so today in ad... Read more

Well I did it! I stuck to my goals for one whole week! Yahoo! LOL Okay, so that's not so long, but I'm still proud. It's a great start and I really feel the staying power this time. Better yet, I've earned my first reward: 2 hours uninterrupted... Read more
Day 6 Check In
Friday, February 22, 2013      1 comments

Well, I didn't "exercise" yesterday or today but I did do my daily crunches. I'm planning to try to squeeze in my last 20 minutes for the week tomorrow, but I'm not gonna lie - the schedule is going to make it challenging. If I don't get it in ... Read more
