I wonder if I'll ever reach a point that I can resist temptation in social settings?

It's been almost two years. And though I'm not always on plan, most of the time I do fine with my diet. Admittedly because I don't have foods that I tend to overeat in the house. Even if I buy something, I will have my serving or two and throw t... Read more
My May Shake-Up
Sunday, May 03, 2009      4 comments

Tomorrow I officially start my May plan. I've found the fewest compound exercises I could to cover upper, lower and core muscle groups. For cardio, intervals on the treadmill or outside. The food plan so far is to go raw. The major problem... Read more
Working on the plan for this month

I'm pretty clear on my fitness strategies forMay but I may need a few more days to get my mind in the right place for food planning. In general, I'm just a little bored with my regular foods. Starting on Sunday, I'll need to get back to tracki... Read more
This week, no goals
Sunday, April 26, 2009      2 comments

I'm not making any specific plans for this week. I'm going to continue my semi break, which is a rest for my mind more than my diet and fitness. No nutrition tracking, no exercise goals other than to do something most days this week, no scale. ... Read more
Been to the dark side
Thursday, April 23, 2009      7 comments

Yet again. This time, brought on by frustration with the scale and my apparent inability to take my exercise to a more advanced level. My mood was getting darker, my kitchen was a mess (always a sign that I'm not in the best place mentally), I w... Read more
Just a tad frustrated

214.5 today. Not the progress I'd like to be making right now. But it's my fault. I know that I need to increase the intensity of my exercise. Walking is fine but my body has adapted to it. I've tried a little running and maybe I'm just not coo... Read more
AMAZING APRIL progress report
Monday, April 06, 2009      8 comments

214.5 I'm happy to report. And all of my measurements are down as well. But given my consistent exercise and staying on plan nutritionally, I was wondering why I wasn't losing faster. (My weight was the same for about 3 weeks.) I calculated... Read more

And we get an extra week to achieve our goals. Every day is crucial to the plan. It won't be amazing if I wimp out on my exercise for a few days or disregard my nutrition g... Read more
Talk about Yin and Yang!

March turned out to be a schizophrenic month. On the one hand, I achieved my goal of consistent exercise - I either went to the gym or walked outside most days of the week and increased my average minutes per day considerably. Yay! But as of t... Read more

For some reason, I'm retaining water; I can see it in my ankles. I don't think I'm consuming a lot of sodium, but of course I'm not tracking, so I could be fooling myself. In fitness, I started the week well and had 3 days with over 60 min... Read more
March 2nd week report

I'm keeping a calendar of my daily pedometer readings and the averages for each category are about the same for this week as last: 5458 steps 4616 aerobic steps, 41 minutes .93 miles What I'm thrilled about is that I was pretty cons... Read more
First week of March results
Sunday, March 08, 2009      4 comments

-2.5 lbs - YAAAAY!!!! Even though I fell short of my intended goals, I was successful. Just goes to show that consistent effort pays off. I had one day of total calorie disaster but the rest of the week, I was on track. I haven't worked out... Read more

I lost 3.5 in February. So it occurs to me that along with the challenge of getting daily exercise, I also need to compensate for the moving around I'm not doing now that I'm not working. Does that mean I should actually increase my formal... Read more
Trying to become internally motivated
Sunday, February 22, 2009      2 comments

I could throw a rock and hit the building where the gym is in my apartment complex, so I have not one excuse for not going every day. Due to the weather, I haven't walked outside, which is what I prefer, in a few days. But I didn't go to the gym... Read more
This is slightly premature, but in a day or two I will have lost 50 lbs
Wednesday, February 18, 2009      3 comments

FINALLY! I see that as a milestone; it is a significant amount of weight in anybody's book. I started in August of 2007 and I've been far from perfect or consistent but the most wonderful thing is that I DID NOT GIVE UP. On to the next 50!... Read more
