Monday, June 07, 2021      2 comments

Logged on today to see that they're killing this site. I'm super sad about it! I know a lot of people I used to know aren't active anymore and I'm off and on, but one of my favorite things to do is log on and read random blogs. Maybe blogs are t... Read more
April/May Update
Thursday, May 13, 2021      3 comments

Ok, so I took a detour. I actually hit my weight goal in early April and ran almost 6 miles straight just before Easter. GREAT. Then we thought my daughter had covid. She was the first to get sick. She luckily did not have covid, but what ... Read more
March Update
Friday, March 26, 2021      2 comments

It looks like my goal for end of Feb was 224. I'm at 225-226 here in March so not bad. I was running on Wednesday and my shorts fell down so that was a NSV. They used to be too tight on me. I've been pretty consistent with run/walking on m... Read more

Hey, I finally hit a goal! Goal was to be in the 220's by the end of January and I hit 228. I was 237 right after Christmas, though I'd been maintaining the 232-234 range for a few months and just jumped up a bit from the Christmas week ju... Read more

It looks like the last time I was here (Oct 1), I was at 232, hoping to get into the 220's. Working in agriculture, fall is busy season. Usually winter is too (shipping), but drought has caused some quality issues so we're unexpectedly slow in J... Read more
Day 38 - Sept wrap up and October goals
Thursday, October 01, 2020      1 comments

My goal for the end of September was 230 and I weighed in at 232 today, after seeing as low as 231 recently. So, I didn't quite make it. When I started blogging here again I was at 237, so I am logging a loss of 5 pounds. I'm setting a goa... Read more

Migraine day today. Hope it improves by end of day. I was excited to run after work. Have my stuff packed so we'll see. Yesterday went pretty well. The new soup recipe was a hit. Took my dog for a training walk. We both got some exercise b... Read more

Good day! Ate perfectly and got in my workout (strength) before dinner. This was humbling. It was one I used to do all the time and I remember it getting easy. I think I was fairly in shape before I tried it last time. I am not in shape now. I a... Read more

Nothing too exciting yesterday. The roast I made turned out well. My husband used to make one that involved a lot of butter and honestly was so rich it made us all kind of sick. I used a clean recipe I found and last night he said "I have ... Read more

A good, but exhausting day. I get up extra early on Wednesdays for a 7 AM meeting at work, 40 minute commute, and take my daughter to her dad's before that. After work, my husband said he forgot to take the chicken out of the freezer for d... Read more

I'm just going to call this my one month blog. So for record keeping: Starting weight: 237 Today: 233.2 Loss of 3.8 lbs (almost 4!) I'm happy with that progress. I can feel and see it, so I think it's true loss. But I think I mi... Read more

Almost a month! Good healthy day. Did 4 miles on the trail after work and tried a new healthy recipe for dinner. My clothes are definitely getting looser. Not much else to report. My husband's new job is going well and he'll be home t... Read more

Had a pretty good weekend here. Got 4 miles in on Friday evening, and 6 yesterday. My daughter had a sleepover Friday night and got back around noon Saturday. I was hoping we could hike together on Saturday so I waited around for her. But she wa... Read more
Day 26

Got hit with the worst migraine I've had in at least six months yesterday. Maybe longer. Odd that it should come right after I just went to the nuerologist and got a new game plan for treating them. I almost skipped that appointment because thin... Read more
