New Streak, New Reward!
Tuesday, February 12, 2013      2 comments

Today, I've beaten my previous streak of getting 8+ cups of water a day by streaking for 18 consecutive days! I'm very proud and, of course, plan on continuing my streak. Water is like the back bone of a healthy lifestyle. Without water, prop... Read more

I stumbled upon a journal entry I wrote this time last year. In it, I wrote about my new healthy lifestyle and all the benefits I was reaping from it. Then I wrote the following: "I plan on remaining committed to this at least through May." ... Read more

Technically, my only nutritional goals at the moment are to track my intake every day and to eat at least two plant based meals a day. These goals are going very well. I'm also, obviously, trying to limit my intake of junk food. More specific... Read more
Getting Stronger Every Day
Saturday, February 09, 2013      5 comments

I started taking toning classes under duress. I have always avoided strength training. I know, I know, it is good for me. But I didn't think it was fun and hated the way it left me feeling the next day (sore, sore, sore). I recently deci... Read more
Well done.

I had another small victory today. I went out to lunch with my co-workers. I have no doubt that I chose the healthiest item on the menu. We went to an Asian fusion noodle spot. I ordered grilled salmon with mixed greens and cold noodles in a... Read more
Big Non-Scale Victories!
Thursday, February 07, 2013      2 comments

Wow! This morning, I was going through some old photos and contrasting them with new ones. All I could say was WOW. I have lost 36 pounds but that just does not accurately communicate the change to my body. I guess because there has also been... Read more

So far, so good! My tracking streak and water streaks are still going strong. The scale is tending down. I've handled a few challenges successfully! My nutrition has been good and I've made (and enjoyed) all my workouts. I had a g... Read more

Yesterday was awesome. I stuck with my nutrition, had a good day at work and headed home. I took the train and walked a mile and I was across the street from my house when I realized I had left my keys at work! It was 5:39 p.m. and I had a 6:... Read more
Super Bowl Success!
Monday, February 04, 2013      4 comments

My plan to maintain healthy eating during the Superbowl worked! I brought my own food (black bean and sweet potato chili, home made guacamole, salsa and chia seed tortilla chips) and shared with everyone. The chili was a big hit! I also had a... Read more

Well, I'm on a positive streak which is good. I've logged in and tracked for 8 days. I've met and exceeded my water goals for 8 days. I've been looking for easy ways to boost my fitness level without killing myself. To that end, I went f... Read more
January Results and February Goals
Friday, February 01, 2013      2 comments

January has been a rocky month for me. I started with the best of intentions yet continued my downward spiral for most of the month. It took a wake up call on the scale and some serious resolve to pull myself out of the nose dive. I managed t... Read more
A Powerful Visualization and a Small Epiphany
Thursday, January 31, 2013      0 comments

I had a strong image pop into my head while I was talking a walk during my lunch break today. I was thinking about Serena’s wedding and how I can’t wait to celebrate with her. I started thinking about how good I’m going to feel at this event. ... Read more
Taking it on the Road

Tonight I'm going out for dinner with my cousin. I strategically selected the restaurant -- a ramen noodle place -- because I think I can stay in range there. The menu is very limited. I had the veggie miso ramen last time I was there and it ... Read more

I have been eating a whole foods diet for about 5 days. I've done this before -- cutting all meat, dairy, eggs, alcohol, refined foods and sweets-- and figured it would be a good way to jump start my system and get back on track. I gained abou... Read more
Good job, me.

Last night, I attended a concert with family and friends. I ate my dinner before I went and was able to get through the evening without ordering unhealthy food or alcohol. What's more, I still had a great time. This is a small victory but a v... Read more
