Ok. This week has been FUNKY. Ugh.
I'm not making great food choices. I'm just hungry, hungry, hungry...but am I? And my exercise has been half-hearted. I could take time to piss & moan, but really I need this place to be intentional.
I'm tired right now. I'd love to just keep sitting on the couch and continue watching "My 600 lb life" (the irony...I know), but instead I'm going to get off my ass and do some weight lifting. That's the LEAST I can do. I might…Continue
After I had my first baby I knew I needed to make changes. I started taking pictures to document the process. I knew that it wasn't pretty, but it was going to get better and I was going to want to have proof along the way. This was my "before" picture that was taken a few weeks after I had my son (May 2012).…Continue
Shannon H's blog post made me think. And then think some more. She posted about being brutally honest about the WHY of what we are doing here, individually, that is. And she also posted about her future self, and imagining the actions of her future self and applying those actions to the here and now.
So I thought this: If I could time-travel back, say, 5 years, and talk to my then-self, what would I say? I would warn her, tell her that I was about to gain over 100 POUNDS over the…Continue
This morning I took my husband to work again (the sky is promising some quick thunderstorms). Yesterday just about wiped me ALL out. I did the laundry, ran some errands (got my walk in!), and tidied up the house, and by dinner time I was zonked! I blame pregnancy, but who knows :) We grilled yesterday. It wasn't the healthiest of meals, but not all of them are going to be. We had brats and corn on the cob.
Today I plan on heading out to the store to get A.J. (husband) a birthday…
Today my husband officially left for work and I am here in the house at my "new job". Actually, it was raining and we are a one car family, so I took him to work, but still...
I've got laundry going, called the internet company and got a $5 discount on our bill, and ate a healthy breakfast (2 eggs, fruit, and plain greek yogurt)!
Hope everyone is having a good morning! I attempted to look for some exercise pants at Target yesterday (pregnancy pants) and had…
So I would definitely say that this week was a success.
Food- I made mostly good choices with the help of myfitnesspal I started calorie counting again it had been about 10 months since I had used the app and after seeing it pop up in various posts I thought I should start using it again. It's only been a few days but it seems to be going well.
Exercise- I did extremely well this week and was able to log 10.5 miles on runkeeper! That is definitely a personal best and I am…Continue
I'm at a point where I'm going to start to find a new normal. I had my last day of work on the 20th and will continue to stay home until the baby is born and then become a stay at home mom after that. I'm very much looking forward to the opportunity, but know it will come with it's own set of struggles!
Today I have been pretty healthy! I had some plain greek yogurt with strawberries/blueberries, then a spinach salad with 2 eggs, carrots, and dressing for lunch. I added a peanut…
I haven't been writing blog posts or commenting because I've been on vacation, woohoo!! Our kids were coming in from out of town so my husband and I rented a 5 br / 4 bath house near Disney World. It has a pool and jacuzzi so we have been spending a lot of time, enjoying the screened-in area out back!
Amazingly, I have stayed on plan for my food, totally within my carb limits! It helps to have my son here with me and he is doing low-carb too, so I have been treating him to…Continue
I came to Blog to Lose a long time ago. And before that I was a part of Weight Circles, which, from what I remember is what shifted over to this site in the first place!
Anyway! It took me so many Google searches to remember the name of this site, and I am so happy to be back. It says I only have 7 old blog posts, but that's because I got married and changed my name/profile in 2013, so the hundreds of others I had under my maiden name aren't represented.
I stopped using…
Last Week's Reflection
Body Image: Pretty good! Don't remember many "beating myself up" moments. When I lift weights I really start to feel better just because.
Fitness: Worked out 4/7 days + one SERIOUS gardening day. Like, seriously sweating, abs aching hard work hacking at grass sections to make a garden. Also, I started using a heart rate monitor when I workout. I love it…Continue
