It has been three weeks now since I made that fateful decision not to be an obese, unhealthy middle-aged cow strapped to an oxygen tank.
Since I began my "journey of enlightenment", I have successfully stayed away from cigarettes, avoided Jack n' the Box and McDonalds, and started moving....ALOT. Suffice to say, I have lost 10 pounds! Not bad!
Having a fitness tracker DOES help. Talking your friends into getting the same kind as you have, so that you can all motivate each…Continue
I was so exhausted yesterday I never updated. I got up and did my biking. I did all 35 minutes I was really proud of that because I wasn't sure I would make it. I did 6.35 miles in that 35 minutes. Slower then where I need to be but still did pretty awesome. And I killed my step goal with 13000 again. I'm doing really well on my steps this week and I'm currently leading in the fitbit challenge but I don't know that I'll win. My friend has been kicking my ass late in the evening so we'll see…Continue
This always happens when I start to lose weight. The first few weeks I have big losses and it makes me nervous that it is too good to be true. So I eat. A lot. Since I have now lost 25 pounds so quickly I have noticed that I am weighing and measuring out my food less often, and willing to go out to eat more often, and allowing the sweets to sneak back in. Curse you Cadbury Mini Eggs!
Yesterday was a tough day at work. I learned two different complex procedures and was feeling a…Continue

Pounds lost so far = 22 total!
The Kid and I were struck down by a major cold! Good thing it was right after our trip to Vegas, but dang, it is hard to be on track when you are sick, and all you want are homey yummy food.
Vegas was almost completely on track, with the exception of exercise, however I averaged 18,000 steps so I figured that I was OK with that. I also split meals with The Kid, who is 9. The kid meals are smallish for him, and a split meal is perfect. I also talked my husband out going…Continue
I am approaching the three week mark of being cigarette free! I decided to get my butt moving with the help of a trendy little fitness tracker called the UP by Jawbone. With its help, I have been able to log an average of 11,000 steps every day for the last week. I am very proud of myself and, also, very sore! Today was, by far, the hardest. I am starting to drag a bit. I need more sleep, I think. Next week I will work on my sleep patterns. This week, I made it to the gym, ran stairs every…Continue
So my alarm went off this morning and I tried convincing myself that it's supposed to be a rest day so why not actually make it one, even though I know that I really need to get in strength training because it'll help in the long run. So I went back to sleep. I did walk our 2 miles at work and I had in all 10k of my steps by the time I was off work. But I bugged myself all day long about being lazy and skipping on my strength training and harassed myself until I got off my ass and went to…Continue
