  • Blog???

    12/13/2019 6:45:18 PM, by SMILE7737

    I'm not very good at writing about myself consistently or better yet even keeping up with work, life, healthy habits, and whatever comes my way. I'm also not very good at boundaries. I like things to be meshed together for the big picture rather than compartments. So I suppose this is my blog of eve... Read more

  • Blogmas Day 11: A break from shopping...for one day at least....

    12/11/2019 2:00:51 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    It's Wednesday, mid week! Kind of a blah day but I've been so busy every day, I'm glad to have a nice day with not much going on.

  • Blogmas Day 10: If no one sees or hears you eat it, do the calories exist?

    12/10/2019 2:31:29 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

  • Blogmas day 7: Big fight! A bit worried about falling behind and gaining

    12/7/2019 5:57:53 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Short blog today. I'm a bit worried about the holidays. It's more rainy which means hubby is home more and he never wants to workout or do much.

  • Jumping Back on the Wagon!

    12/2/2019 11:19:12 PM, by AMASSOTH

    The stress and temptation of last week sent me on a 4 day binge and left me feeling ashamed and defeated. Thanks to my supportive fiance and own determination I was able to start the week off right. I ate within my calorie goal and took my measurements for the month. I plan to continue to eat more h...

    12/2/2019 5:01:14 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Day 2 today! I got out for a run this morning and am feeling great! After having a bit of a vacation, I already felt a little out of shape and wanted to quit! I had a big heavy jacket on due to the cold so I'm thinking that was part of it. I only took off Thursday, Saturday and Sunday. It's crazy ho... Read more

    So it's December now!! I can't believe it! The countdown to Christmas is on! I got a few gifts so far, but not as far as I want. The problem is, the kids are older now and it's harder to hide the gifts from them. I think I found a place but wow, they are sneaky. So, since it's December 1... Read more

  • Happy Thanksgiving!! New low!

    11/28/2019 1:16:39 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    Well, I caved. I was genuinely curious and hopped on the scale and hit a new low weight! As for the race I was gonna do? Cancelled due to rain. Bummer. It's ok because the thought of running in pouring cold ice rain on Thanksgiving doesn't sound very fun to me. I doubt I'll get a work out in t... Read more

    11/27/2019 6:36:34 PM, by BEACHCALSIX

    It's here! It's tomorrow! I'm kind of nervous about the scale though. I usually weigh in on Fridays. Should I just weigh in tomorrow morning instead? But, that's ridiculous because I'm going to have to weigh in this weekend anyways for a dietbet so.... In a perfect world, I would lose weig... Read more

    11/26/2019 11:51:20 PM, by JENNDAVIS25

    It’s disheartening to see that I’ve gained 2.4 lbs back on the scale...I’m telling myself that it’s fat turning into muscle though because I have went down another belt loop...I’ve noticed that I don’t drink near as much water when I am home than I do at work which causes me to be hungry more at hom...

It makes it a little easier to swallow...no pun intended...I’m working on ways to reach my protein number... Read more
