January 2020 recap
Saturday, February 01, 2020      2 comments

I cannot believe that February is here already, January came and went in a blur! I started 2020 with a 13.4 lb loss. All that from simply switching my diet to mostly plant based foods, and eating mindfully. I'm really proud of being able to cont... Read more
September recap
Tuesday, October 02, 2018      3 comments

What a disappointing month. Not enough consistent exercise, too much stress eating. I did eat a lot of healthy foods, (a long with some unhealthy) but I wasn't watching portion sizes, and I am sure that binging at night was also a factor of not ... Read more

Up 8 lbs this month... BLEH.. I know I haven't been eating as healthy the last few weeks, and I haven't been exercising much. I'm getting back on track, starting today. The last thing I need is to gain MORE weight before the holidays even start.... Read more
July Recap

June was a kinda BLAH month. I slacked a bit on exercise, I averaged about 3 days of exercise a week, 60+ mins per day. I guess that wouldn't be so bad IF my eating had been good. I have gotten really off track with my eating. So I've gained 2.2... Read more

I decided last month that I would allow myself one greasy fast food meal per month. In May it was at the end of the month, and for this month I had it last night. I decided to stop by Checkers. I ordered a checkerburger with cheese and bacon, ... Read more

I was starting to get a little cranky about the fact I wasn't losing much weight so far this month. However, the last 3 days have been ON POINT. I made sure I stayed within my calorie range, and I have lost 3-4 lbs since Wednesday. It's sooooo r... Read more

So I had a revelation today... Why do we wait until we have completely fallen off the wagon and gained ALL of our weight back before getting back on? It seems like I have been doing this my entire adult life. (also my overweight life!) Maybe thi... Read more
May recap
Friday, June 01, 2018      2 comments

I am trying very hard to stay optimistic here. a 7 lb loss for the month is smack dab in the middle of a "healthy" weight loss range. It's hard to see the number on the scale jump around the way it does, especially when I was several lbs lighter... Read more
Trying to hold onto motivation

Last weekend my brother got married. I decided to NOT keep the fancy dress I bought for the wedding, and wore another (more casual) sundress I owned instead. I basically crammed myself into it, and called it good. I look at myself in this photo,... Read more
April recap
Tuesday, May 01, 2018      1 comments

April was a VERY stressful month. The first week on April was spring break, and I decided to take the week off from working out, as I was on vacation. Well, that ended up turning into several weeks, due to the fact that I had to help Steve pack ... Read more
March recap
Wednesday, April 11, 2018      3 comments

I averaged about 3 workouts a week during March. I have managed to maintain my weight, but not lose anything. I have been going through a lot of stress, and I'm having issues with eating at night. That's pretty much the reason I haven't been los... Read more

February recap

Well, I am down 2.8 lbs for the month of February. Again, that is not meeting goal. I got workouts in 11 days out of 28. I have made some good choices with food, but haven't been too restrictive. I have a hard time being consistent with counting... Read more
January recap
Thursday, February 01, 2018      3 comments

So, January did not go as well as i would have liked it to, as I did not meet my goal. I DID however score a loss for the month, so I will take it, even though I didn't lose as much as I would have liked to. Basically what happened, was that I l... Read more
