How Do You Work In Exercise?
Tuesday, February 14, 2012      9 comments

How does one fit exercise into a day that's already jam packed? Does anyone have any good advice? Yes, I know I wrote about sitting in my recliner the other day, but that day was an exception. I never get time to sit. I realized as I w... Read more
Almost
Wednesday, February 08, 2012      7 comments

Last night I realized I was SITTING in the recliner, watching tv. Not working, not exercising, not making lunches (which I should have done), not doing laundry, but sitting. I didn't feel badly for it either, because it's honestly the first ti... Read more
A Tough (temporary) Trade-off.
Wednesday, February 01, 2012      3 comments

I'm working evenings this week, trying to take care of some office furniture issues that can't be done during normal work hours. It's wreaked havoc on my days in that I don't get to bed until 3:00 am and I can only sleep until about 9:00 am bef... Read more

I Think I Found the Secret... but why?
Thursday, January 26, 2012      2 comments

I stayed home from the office yesterday to receive my new refrigerator. What I noticed is my daily calories were WAY lower than when I go to work. If I look back at my weekend food journal, I noticed that my calories are much lower on those da... Read more
No movement on the scale
Monday, January 23, 2012      1 comments

So my scale didn't move up or down this morning and I know why. I wont try to make excuses, but I'll go ahead and write about it. One of my good, good friends is an Executive Chef at a very nice restaurant in Old Town. She's been written ... Read more
Where Does Motivation Come From?
Thursday, January 19, 2012      1 comments

I'm so unmotivated right now... I was cranking away today. Getting this done, getting that done... then pow! Nothing. I hit some kind of brick wall around 3:30 and I just want to be home in a chair watching Vampire Diaries on Netflix. ... Read more
Late Night
Wednesday, January 18, 2012      3 comments

I had a late night at work last night. Had to stay past 10:00 pm. I could have eaten better, but I did stay within my calorie budget. Not a bad day, but could have been better. There was an unfortunate altercation with my work crew and... Read more
Tough Weekend
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      4 comments

I made it past the weekend. It was a doozy, but I pulled thorough. I visited Dr. Oz's website yesterday and found out that I'm "dangerously unhealthy" and a food addict. Hmm... That puts things into a whole new perspective. I've never b... Read more
I Totally Cheated Yesterday
Friday, January 13, 2012      1 comments

Yes, I cheated, but I only went over my calorie budget by 10 calories. I left the office yesterday at 7:00 pm. Much earlier than I anticipated, by-the-way. I took a new way home and spotted a Burger King. I haven't seen a Burger King in ... Read more
No Plan Today

I never got around to planning my food for today. I'm being mindful though. I took my 15 year old and my 5 year old to the doctor today for seperate reasons. One hasn't felt well for 3 weeks and the other just needed a well visit. Afte... Read more
Day Two - Eh
Wednesday, January 11, 2012      3 comments

I got caught up in slooooow traffic last night and didn't get home until after 7:00 pm. What does that mean? It means I wasn't in control of what was for dinner. The hubby - I love him so very much - made dinner for the kids and kept it warm ... Read more

Official Start to My Starting Over Campaign
Monday, January 09, 2012      5 comments

Alright, so I've gained every single pound back. No surprise, since I spent my summer on a construction site, working late, working weekends and ate what was available... McDonalds. Which, by-the-way, I'm totally sick of. Got my fill and the... Read more
