evil mirrors and eating like a 6 year old
Monday, February 18, 2013      10 comments

I got back a couple hours ago from a mini-getaway. I can't tell you how great it was. I didn't even know how much I needed it until we were on the way home. We booked a room at a hotel with a pool in the nearest city and took off as soon ... Read more
Countdown #8 - how prepared are you?
Tuesday, February 12, 2013      6 comments

Pre-challenge assignment #8 was to take this quiz to decide how ready we are for the winter 5% challenge. I didn’t score too badly, but I also didn’t score terribly well. There is definitely room for improvement and preparation and I’ve been g... Read more
Countdown #5 - prior fails

"List YOUR reasons/excuses on why YOUR diets and exercise plans have not been well executed in the past. OK that might be too long a list, so give 3 or 4 reasons and for each write a strategy that will keep you on track for 8 weeks. Let's learn ... Read more
Countdown #4 - triggers
Thursday, February 07, 2013      9 comments

Here I am supposed to address my triggers. The foods that derail me and the things that make me reach for them even though I know better. It seems like this list grows every day. It used to be short and sweet, but it seems like it's growi... Read more
Countdown #1

Since it's Tuesday it must be time for me to blog. I'm not sure how that happened, but it looks like most of my last several blogs have been Tuesday night. I supposed it's because that's one of the nights hubby works so I've got some extra tim... Read more
Updated plan
Saturday, February 02, 2013      8 comments

After making my decision to go all in, I started thinking about what "all in" looks like for me. One thing that I decided is that my current goals were unrealistic. I SAID I wanted to lose 1 pound a week, but I had my nutrition/fitness set for... Read more
Decision made
Tuesday, January 29, 2013      9 comments

So I've been giving this lots of thought over the last week since my last post. The conclusion I've come to is that I have to get healthy, and that means making uncomfortable sacrifices. I'll have to sacrifice most fast food and restaurant mea... Read more
All in... or all out
Tuesday, January 22, 2013      6 comments

I've been thinking a lot this past week about what I'm doing and my so called weight-loss journey. [and let me just say how viciously I hate that term, but find myself using it anyway. Surely there's a better way to say it. Maybe just flat ou... Read more
week 2 - meh
Tuesday, January 15, 2013      3 comments

All in all not a great week for me. I started strong and then kind of fizzled. Hit my 3 workouts, but only 3. Got in 96+ ounces of water 4 days, but missed even 64 the other 3 day, and snacked almost every night. I'm not sure what happened t... Read more
One week and one pound
Tuesday, January 08, 2013      9 comments

Here it is, Tuesday night again - exactly one week into the new year. How many of us have already broken our resolutions? How many of us put too much pressure on ourselves and gave up already? I know last year when I was still a member at Cur... Read more
Goals, not resolutions - it's all semantics

As promised – a positive hopeful blog to follow the pathetic whiny one last time. I weighed in this morning at a whopping 232.4. I’m pretty sure the extra 2 pounds from earlier in the week were because I had a few drinks last night and tha... Read more
Fantastic Christmas - terrible weigh in
Friday, December 28, 2012      5 comments

This is mostly a recap blog for 2012. Sometime in the next few days I will post goals for the new year. This is going to be a whiny, self-pitying, pathetic blog so feel free to skip it. Please keep in mind that there will be a more positive o... Read more
Blah day - and the Christmas tree war
Thursday, November 29, 2012      9 comments

Today has just been a blah day all around. Nothing really happened, just a long day at the (almost) end of a long week. Mostly I just want to to go soak in a hot tub, but alas, I don't have one. Bummer. My 5% fall challenge is coming to ... Read more
I've got some research to do
Thursday, November 15, 2012      8 comments

So I got some interesting news today, and I'm not sure what to make of it. I went in Monday for my well-woman checkup. Normally not even a blip on the radar but... 1. I actually got to see the doc. Usually I see one of the physicia... Read more
A week of thanks
Sunday, November 11, 2012      8 comments

This week's focus on the 5% challenge is self-thanks. Each day we are supposed to send ourselves with a goodie and a nice note thanking ourselves for a good choice we've made. I feel a little silly about it, but after the weakest start ever I'... Read more
