Meal Prep Fail!
Saturday, October 24, 2020      12 comments

I don't know how people do this. I want to plan and prep my meals for the week but by the time I finished shopping yesterday and putting the food up, it was too late. Today, I finished my normal chores in the house and my workout before noon. I ... Read more
Time To Chill
Friday, October 23, 2020      12 comments

No, I am not quitting! Far from it. This week was hectic. My weight is up and I need to regroup. I have been running a round like a chicken with its head cut off. Up early. In bed late. Late is never good for me because I eat terribly at night. ... Read more
Eating Plan Evolution
Thursday, October 22, 2020      9 comments

I'm gonna eat more. I've tried everything else. Why not? I ran around so much yesterday that I wasted calories on snacks that I keep stashed in the car. Pistachios and Pick me ups are for emergencies - not meals. So of course, I ate over my calo... Read more
Fancy Watch Devastation
Wednesday, October 21, 2020      12 comments

For 2 hours my fancy fitness watch deleted 2 days worth of activity and wiped out a 6 month streak of me closing all my rings. I have diligently made sure I have moved for at least 1 min for 12 hours a day, burned at least 500 cals and recently ... Read more
Breakfast Woes
Tuesday, October 20, 2020      15 comments

I eat breakfast every morning. I was trying to mix it up this morning and tried a Belvita breakfast biscuit because it promised 4 hours of energy. It looked promising since it was 4 chocolate chip cookies in the package. I added some blueberries... Read more

I went up a little bit. I didn't freak out. I drank my tea and ate my cereal. I feel OK. I had a great weekend even with some of life's challenges. My TO DO list on Sunday was blown to smithereens by the broken freezer but, it all works ou... Read more

The freezer died on fridge this morning. It’s been repaired before and the refrigerator is not old at all. UGH! I lost a lot of ice cream but I’m thankful it’s the keto ice cream I don’t eat. More importantly, we didn’t go to Costco yet. I can’t... Read more

This is my 5% Goal Weight down to the ounce. I had to check twice because I didn’t believe it. I’m not at my final goal but I got to this one a little s... Read more
Workout Variation
Friday, October 16, 2020      9 comments

I am always looking to mix up my workouts. Right now the only constant is the use of my running/ walking app. I really like it because it has set milestones and it uses interval training. I run, walk and do various speeds of sprints. I just look... Read more
First World Problems

I can't find my insurance lady hair!!! I have a meeting this morning and I have no idea where I've tossed it. I've been in this basement living wild and free since March. My "natural" blonde afro is fine for Zoom meetings but the current look is... Read more
Planning for Thanksgiving
Wednesday, October 14, 2020      14 comments

I ordered the cheesecakes for Thanksgiving. This prompted a productive talk with my husband about how we are going to approach this calorie-filled holiday. Planning is the only way for me to be successful in my opinion. I have been married to hi... Read more
You Got This
Tuesday, October 13, 2020      8 comments

I have been so preoccupied with trying to get everything perfect that I have been tying myself in knots. I can't find something I am eating in the database- angst. I look up a food and the sodium count is wrong- exasperation! I poured out too m... Read more

Sometimes you have to fall off a swing and skin your knee to have a reality check. I am so motivated this Monday morning I can hardly stand it. I had a bit of clarity last night as I prepped salad veggies and cried a bit. I get frustrated when I... Read more

Holy Smokes, it worked! I think my body was shocked by the change in my diet. I had a bump in weight loss like the first week of a diet. I ate in the low cal range M/T, mid range on W/TH and the high end on Fri and today. I don't expect to signi... Read more
