Friday, January 15, 2016      5 comments

So I went to my blogs and re-read a blog I wrote last year at this time. In fact, it was the last blog I had written here. And I could have almost rewritten it word for word for this year. 2015 was a good year in many aspects, but not on ... Read more

Isn't that the life of weight loss to some extent. Some up and down, some period of steadfastness and periods of distraction. I got to my almost goal weight and then struggled. Then in my struggle I kept changing it up and got frustr... Read more

I spent all of last weekend at Disneyland with my hubby and kids. And I made a distinct decision to not stick to my eating plan. I made this decision knowing it would cause a gain on the scale and I would have to re-lose weight already lo... Read more

So I've been doing a low carb, higher fat diet plan for a couple weeks now and feeling good on it, losing weight on it. So good, that I decided to try my 'longer' run today without doing any carbs before it. I should have rethought this having... Read more
New plan & New Focus
Thursday, April 24, 2014      6 comments

I have had a good loss on the scale the last couple weeks. And I have really changed my diet. Is that the cause of the success? Or is it because I simply have a new plan that is keeping me focused? That the newness of the routine is... Read more

Monday, April 21, 2014      5 comments

I was cleaning up my Spark site today. I emptied out of teams that had died or rounds had finished. In doing so, I came across some old tracking threads for weights. And it confirmed what I basically knew- that 2013 was a bust of a weight... Read more
18 miles and Smartphones

Running & Weight Loss
Tuesday, April 08, 2014      8 comments

It seems like when I got more serious about running, my weight loss stalled out. Some of this is just timing. I got interested in running, interested in races, after I had lost most of my weight. This means I was taking up more running at... Read more
