Today I Rest

I have been really killing my workouts this week and pushing myself very aggressively to top my own personal best every single day.  I'm not going to lie.  Yesterday there was some pretty loud self talk telling me to take a break but I ignored it and killed the workout in super star fashion.


I am feeling a bit tired and sore from working out plus today is a day off for the husband and we have a FULL schedule including allergy testing for the youngest, allergy and xolair shots…

False Readings

Talk about false readings. Last week was so dang sunny & spring like I thought we were done with winter, then yesterday we had snow,sleet, hail. I mean it just changed hour to hour. I didn't get to bike or run on Monday or Tuesday. But today I did get in a run/walk training in today. Tomorrow is suppose to be nicer & if the wind is a bit calmer, I am going to get in a bike ride after work. I have been doing good with my eating, resisting snacking after dinner and sticking to the 3 meals… Continue

This Little Bugger


This little bugger almost ruined my entire day yesterday.  Looks pretty harmless, right?  Not so much.  I had my niece and nephew for the day yesterday and my sister baked me a batch of my most favorite Mickey Mouse shaped chocolate cookies to say thank you.  I am usually not much of a cookie girl…

Check In: 4/19/15

Gonna keep this brief, but want to stay accountable so a "mini-post" from me TW!

Last Week's Reflection

Body Image: Still tough overall, but I now have clothes that fit thanks to finally accepting my size. I went out an bought a few new pairs of pants and tops that are a bit larger to fit & flatter more.

Fitness: Completed 5 of 6 workouts. Biked 74 miles +…

Week in Review

Monday nights are my WW night. What a horrible time for a weigh in. Not only is it right after the weekend, but it is at night as well. When I first signed up, that was the only time that wold work for me and I really enjoy the leader, so now it just stuck. It's really not that bad.

I went into tonight's weigh in feeling confident. I knew that I had a good week. I tracked everything and made good choices. I used 20 out of 49 of my weekly points because I am not able to earn…

What to Eat

Just read a great article in the NYT's about what to eat.  Unlike others it isn't so much about what NOT to eat, but about what to eat for better health.

Taking Notice

Hello ladies.  I have had a ton of appointments the past two weeks so I haven't been able to be here as much as I would like.  I feel like I am completely out of the loop!


I am happy to report that I am doing super good with my new plan.  As much as I fight it, tracking really does help me to see trends on hunger and I am for sure a person who needs more food late afternoon than morning.  Don't have a heart attack Linda!  I am still eating a smaller breakfast and lunch. …

Declutter Project

At the start of 2015, one of the goals I set for myself was to declutter.  As with most things, I started off with a bang.  I had declutter the kitchen cabinets, the linen closet, my vanity and then I was going to move on to the master closet.  The task was so daunting that all I could do was stare at it ... and thus had done nothing.

That's until last weekend.  I finally got to the point where enough was enough.  The clutter was stressing me out so bad that I just pulled everything…

Week in review 4/19

Weight - down 2.2 pounds. It was so good to see after 3 weeks of zippo.

Mood- Happy. The weather was so perfect. Sunny days just do wonders for me

Exercise - I have been alternating jog/walking with bike riding. I am really liking jogging. Each time gets better.

Food - I had some bad snacking, but I did only have 2 protein/replacement bars this week like I said I wanted to. I also had more salads and a leafy green most nights. More veggies.

The new… Continue

feeling better

I did better this week. I did miss one day of training and I have no excuse, I was just lazy. But otherwise I've been on top of things. Yesterday I even biked and ran and I biked on the street not on my wind trainer. It was freezing the temps were low then you add in the wind from riding, I couldn't feel my fingers. Then running after was rough because my body was so cold. Next time more clothes and gloves for sure. 

My allergies are killing me. They're so bad this year. I…

In Between

I'm in that dreaded place in between wearing maternity clothes and my regular clothes. I certainly don't want to wear the maternity clothes anymore and they look quite silly...but I'm no where close to being able to fit back into my 6s. In fact, I can barely squeeze into a 12s at this point. Thankfully I saved a few pairs of bigger sizes as I lost the weight because I knew I would need them after the baby. But I didn't save much because I don't want to be too comfortable here. I certainly…

My Best Day

Saturday mornings seem to be my best.  Its kinda like the start of a new week for me.  I just wish I could keep the momentum going throughout the week as I do on Saturday mornings.

I generally get up and have my coffee.  Then I head out for a walk with a friend or two.  Last week, I met two friends back to back about an 1 apart and put down over 7 miles.  This morning I met with two friends at the same time and we put down a little over 3 miles.

I came home and had one egg,…

Question of the Day

SOoooooooo I have this gross bottom fat roll again on my belly... and my left side has a lot more fat than my right.. im assuming its because of the way I carry myself or hold myself when Im sitting.. I also have one ass cheek that is more toned than the other.. its ALWAYS been an issue of mine.. including the more fat on one side of my belly than the other.. does anyone else deal with this? Am I just weird as F*ck?

What Am I Doing?

Mid April 2015 and I have not had any interest losing weight.  In fact, I've put on weight.  I cannot even say what I weigh because I haven't jumped on the scales for a really long time.

I tried on some tops yesterday, knowing full well my size, but when I looked at myself in the change room mirrors, I was horrified!  Needless to say I did not purchase those tops.  In fact the experience got me thinking - yeah, it's time to refocus.  I know how, I know why but I'm so lazy! …

He Keeps Me Moving

Thanks to my 2 year old, I've met my 5,000 step goal every day so far. It isn't too hard when the days are filled with trips to the zoo, Pump it Up, walks, and going to the park. The weather has been quite nice and we are taking advantage while we can. Tonight for dinner we had Chick-fil-a. I forgot how much I love their grilled chicken sandwich and fruit cup. Sure, the fried sandwich, fries and cookies and cream milkshake taste better, but there aren't enough points in an entire week for…

Why can't I quit?

Oh no. I have caught a cold. And when I am sick I always turn to crackers, which is what I overdid today. Multiple handfuls of Cheez-It's. I can pass up the chocolate but not the salt. And no, they are not gluten-free. Bad and bad. The one saving grace is I did go for a long bike ride. It is my cross training activity for the days I am not training for the 5k. I just have to stop this mindless munching. Ugh sometimes I just feel I will never get a handle on this. I am suppose to be on txt his… Continue
