Sunday, February 01, 2015      1 comments

Filling out my tracking thread post today I realized just how much I've let myself slip. Not weight-wise, luckily. I had a great loss last week and maintained this week... but in every other way I didn't live up to my expectations. I've gotten l... Read more

This challenge has been... well, challenging. Instead of being a positive stress, at times I have felt overwhelmed by all it involves. Perhaps mostly because none of what I'm doing seems to be having much of an impact on progress towards my... Read more

The past week was bad. I mean that because I was out of town for 4 days with little control over my schedule and food options, but also because even the days that I was home I wasn't at the top of my game. I gave in to a lot of excuses this week... Read more

The past week has been a struggle. I was under an immense amount of stress trying to write an extensive paper for my most difficult class, while also revising a paper for publication. And of course the house was a mess and the dog needed to be w... Read more

The first week of BLC was a success! I really found myself being motivated (and holding myself accountable) by the challenge. Tracking honestly really helped me to pay attention to what I was eating , and what I was craving. It certainly wasn't ... Read more

5k success
Monday, September 01, 2014      3 comments

When I think of three day weekends, I think of relaxation. That's not exactly what I found this weekend, but it has been quite enjoyable nonetheless. Saturday morning started bright and early with a 5k charity run for a local organization w... Read more
Settling in for Fall
Wednesday, August 20, 2014      1 comments

My plans to post daily in August have obviously been unsuccessful. I spent the past week visiting family in Minnesota, and somehow getting online to post just wasn't a priority. I wish I could say the trip was super restful and relaxing...... Read more

I've been making plans to make August a great month for myself -- focus on my eating and fitness habits and reign in our extra spending from the craziness that was July. Plus I'm taking a week to visit family before the school year starts up aga... Read more
It's been a long summer...
Monday, July 28, 2014      1 comments

Somehow it's the end of July and here I am writing a follow up to my post from May. I'm sad to report that along with slacking here on SP, I've been slacking in the kitchen and gym as well. The beach vacation I was worried about was b... Read more
