It's been just over a week since my last blog and it's been a roller coaster of a ride. I've had good days and not so good days mixed in. I have tried to make wise choices with food, but there was some emotional/stress eating in there too. Th... Read more

Well! My back has been really hurting so I haven't done much of anything. I'm going to the chiropractor tomorrow morning. My eating was pretty good for Fri and Sat, not so much for Sunday. Too many high sodium, high fat snacky things watchin... Read more

I did just okay Wednesday. I did stay under on all my trackers, but no exercise since my back was hurting. I woke up with it really painful today and it's been hard to get around, so I've been resting quite a bit. It was the day for my MIL a... Read more

I had some trouble on Tuesday. I have PMS symptoms so I was not feeling up to a workout, but I did manage to go out and shovel the snow - great calorie burner! My eating was okay. I stayed within most ranges, a little high on sodium. I am st... Read more

Well, Sunday could've gone better. There was drama about getting ready for church and so we were late and it was my day to serve in the nursery. There was plenty of help, but I hate being late. Add to that the drama of everyone being hungry (... Read more

Friday was another great day. I got my workout in first thing after the kids got on the bus. I drank all my water and ate within all ranges and remembered my vitamins. Today was great too! It was weigh-in day for the 5% Challenge. Drum... Read more

Today was a pretty awesome day! I got up early for my quiet time. There was a little bit of a stressor with everyone needing to get in the bathroom at the same time this morning. We try to stagger their wake up times so that doesn't hap... Read more

I've been in a funk the past couple of days. My brain just keeps going and going with this possible move. So many things to think about and plan and prepare for. Hubby got the email today that they are flying him down to NC on Feb 6 - 9. He ... Read more

Today we said goodbye to our wonderful cat, Sasha. She passed away in her sleep overnight. She was 15 years old. The ground had thawed just enough to be able to bury her next to her sister, Lexie, who died 2 years ago. The kids are taking it... Read more

Saturday was weigh-in day! I broke 240! I weighed in at 239.1. That's 5.3 lbs down for the 5% challenge. I am super excited to see this progress. That's just with food tracking and some sporadic exercise. It's time to get moving for real! ... Read more

Friday was an interesting day. I stayed within most ranges, a little low on protein and fiber. I'm working on getting more of both of those. I did come up with a new smoothie recipe with chia seeds that I really like, so that will help with f... Read more

Another great day! I stayed with all my ranges, upped my protein and fiber, lowered the fat and carbs. I'm excited! This time tracking has been such an eye-opener. I know it will work if I just do it, but since restarting it Jan 1, I hav... Read more

I had a pretty good day on Wednesday. We tried a new 16 bean soup recipe and everyone loved it - even my picky kiddos! I stayed within calorie range and also all my other nutrients. I was on the low end of protein though. I need to up that. ... Read more

Monday and Tuesday were both good days. I stayed under on calories and within range of all the nutrients I track. I am a little on the low end for fiber and protein, so I'll be trying to work more of both into my meals. Monday was anoth... Read more

Oh boy! Sunday was a busy day. First, Hubby took our daughter to the first service at church (we usually go to the 2nd service) since her small group had a meeting. Our oldest son still isn't feeling that well and I really don't like driv... Read more
