Good for Me
Sunday, March 01, 2015      4 comments

Day 56 of Operation "Good for Me." Getting a few chores done this morning and then going to the gym. Weird thing is, I'm actually looking forward to it. This is a strange feeling for me. I'm gradually adjusting to the idea of putting myself firs... Read more
Past that 21-day mark
Wednesday, January 28, 2015      1 comments

They say it takes 21 days to form a habit. So I made a special effort this time around to push myself to that 21-day mark. I've been sticking to my healthy low-carb(ish) eating plan, and my commitment to at least 20 minutes of exercise in the ... Read more

...are usually so hard for me when I start a new diet/exercise plan. It's hard enough to get into a workout routine on weekday mornings, but on weekends it seems even harder cause I feel like I should be "off". Decided not to buy into that mi... Read more

It's been over a year since my last post. I thought I was getting back into the groove, but apparently I was wrong. So here I go again. I have to do this - I have no choice. Well, I guess technically I do have a choice. I *could* ... Read more

Since I posted my Labor Day resolution, I have lost 6 pounds. :) I know, it's only the first week back on track after a long lapse - I certainly won't continue at this rate. I understand that and I'm OK with that. This isn't my first time ar... Read more

I've been pretty good about "keeping the faith" this week. I'm down 2 lbs in 5 days. If I stick to my program faithfully, I hope to be able to lose about 1.5 lbs a week on average. I don't want to be a slave to the scale, but just for a littl... Read more

Here I go again… Start, stop, start, stop. Every time I start to get into a groove, life throws me a curve ball and that’s the end of my healthy habits. This past year has been just FULL of these curve balls. I’m not even going t... Read more

So I tried an experiment yesterday. My hubby and kids were away for the day (they went to Six Flags and I had to work :( ) so I didn't have to worry about feeding anyone but myself. I've been reading a lot about the benefits of a plant-based... Read more
Adjustment for accuracy - and motivation

This morning I went and edited my starting weight and date on my Sparkpeople weight tracker. I've resisted doing so because I didn't want to admit to the world that I had fallen off the wagon AGAIN, badly, and started out this time 5 lbs heavie... Read more

So I'm trying to increase the amount of fruits and veggies in my diet. I already eat a lot of veggies, but I wanted to sneak in some more and see how that affects my energy and my weight loss. I was a little scared (LOL), but I threw about... Read more

Spinning rings and floppy shoes

I guess I should be happy that the scale moved downward a little (-2 lbs today) - but why is it that the first places I seem to lose weight are the ones nobody cares about? Yeah, it's nice that my shoes aren't tight today and my fingers feel th... Read more
Using my frustration as fuel
Monday, July 30, 2012      2 comments

When I was younger, I could "diet" 4 or 5 days a week and slack off on the weekends, and still lose weight. Maybe I didn't lose as fast as I could have, but most weeks I ended up with a net loss so I was happy with that. Nowadays, not so m... Read more
