No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
Day 2a has been good. Got more water in today but need to drink more. No exercise. It has been a busy day with lots of stuff. I had a chiropractic appointment after work today. I'd tell you that I didn't want to put myself out of line just after getting adjusted ... but I'd be lying. I was just lazy. Food wise has been on target. MVP says that I left 92 calories on the table. I'm sure once I really get rolling, I will not be leaving calories on the…Continue

My last post was exactly two months ago. Wow.
The amount that I post is fairly reflective of how well I am doing taking care of my diet. Exercise, as always, is still good. Well, the running part. I have lots of goals set up for 2014. I need to work on strength and flexibility. I think it's been 7 months since I did any strength training. But walking and running has gone well- I peaked at 85 miles for the month of October, and typically I get 60 miles. I am hoping to hit 100 miles…Continue

Well, that didn't take long. I like Dan (the new trainer) more already! Can you tell we did heavy lifting today? I'm in a much better mood. Class was back to being hard today. He made some comment about us looking like we were whipped and I just smiled and said "Good! That's the way we like it. If we are complaining, you're doing it right" We both laughed and I hope that goes to show that we like the challenge! He also paid much more attention to correct form today. I typically don't like…Continue
Are you looking for a reason to get up off the couch? Are you trying to remotivate yourself? Have you just lost interest in exercise?
I'm totally excited that a new fitness based smart phone game has been released. I just downloaded it and haven't started playing yet so I can't give you any particulars, but it is from the developers of my beloved "Zombie, Run!".
Here is the link to The Walk Game. It…Continue

I am up exactly 1 lb this week. I hate that I am gonna miss out on 15 points for the skinny snowman challenge this week. However, I feel good! Not so great about the pound, but I feel more comfortable in my clothes again, and the mirror doesn’t make me want to cry or avoid it like dog poo on the running trails. Plus looking back over my weight loss/measurement tracker I realized my weight gets so weird when I try to break into a new ‘decade’ and I am right on the cusp of new one. My body…Continue
So yeah, I guess you could say that I'm a little bit annoyed. TMI but I'm thinking that I would have had a loss if I went to the bathroom before wi. But no...
I've been eating on target I even broke out my kitchen scale this week to make sure that I haven't been unconsciously overdoing portion sizes. I've actually been quite accurate, so that's not the issue. I've been regular about my workouts. I'm really thinking that either my pizza outing screwed me up this week or I might…Continue
Restart day was a success! Even with celebrating my son's 23rd birthday.
He decided that he wanted to go to Olive Garden and at first I wanted to say not just NO, but Hell no! But being the great mom that I'd love to think that I am (HA); I decided to suck it up and be a big girl and make wise choices. I need to learn boundaries even if it is on Day 1a.
I resisted the devil ... I mean breadsticks. Tossed my croutons out of the salad and asked for no cheese. I picked the…Continue
Woke up today and it was snowing. I didn't want to walk in my neighborhood since it is hilly and slippery so I drove to the office and figured I'd get in at least a 15 min walk. To quote Roni, "WYCWYC."
Looked outside around 10:30 and snow had let up so out I went for another 15 minute walk. After lunch I bundled up and now have walked almost 10,000 steps for 61 mins of brisk walking. And to think I thought today would be bust!
We do have a fitness center where I live but…Continue
Sighhhhhhhhhhhhh where to start. I left my husband last week. Which is why Ive been absent. I moved into my cousins house in her basement. So strange being in a different place. I managed to get down to 140 lbs. Sunday thats what the scale said. Im hoping to hit that 139 any day now! I would have hit it last week Im sure but I didnt work out for 4 days in a row because of the moving and stress and just trying to adjust. He and I just cannot get along. I dont know wtf is going on with this…Continue
I don't get it. After all these years I truly expected to see a difference on the scale this morning even though I only worked out one day. Wishful thinking I guess.

So it has been 1 and a 1/2 years since I was last here. I'm starting all over again, probably heavier than before. My wife and I signed up for a 5K in March and tonight was my first training run using some app. It went well, I'm sore and tired, but in a good way. I thought this was a great place to keep track of my progress, so hello...again!
Welp, hello there BTLers. Sorry that I haven't been active lately, but I promise that is all about to change as I have recommitted myself to another Whole30 Challenge and plan to document to keep myself accountable. I also know that it is the only way that I stay focused....I know why through the holidays??? I just have to.
My husband and I just returned home from a four day trip to Las Vegas. It was a company trip for him so anything that is paid for is alright by me. The day…Continue
I'm talking about the gym. LOL.
I actually made it there this afternoon. I was a little surprised it was still there, it's been so long since I have seen it! I hate to say it, but BOY I have I gotten lazy. I know that I have been physically incapable of exercising lately and that I have gone to the gym when I could but boy oh boy have I gotten lazy. It was very difficult to keep my head in the game. I found myself counting the minutes I was on the treadmill and making…Continue
People who are unable to motivate themselves must be content with mediocrity, no matter how impressive their other talents.
Motivation & Results!
I’m back and glad to be home! The two weeks at the resort gave me a good jumpstart on my health and fitness goals.
The results? After two weeks, I lost 8lbs and 8 inches total! Not bad for a…

So currently the scale is the same as it was last Wed and last Mon. I'm hoping to register a loss on Wed. if not then I will just keep pressing on. I started using my fitness pal again a few days ago since I've been maintaining more than I'm losing. lately It's really helping me to plan ahead my food for the day. According to mfp I should be losing 0.5-1 lb/week. I need to do some research because I feel like my calories are on the low side with mfp...? We went out for pizza Friday…Continue
Today was my first workout with the new (to me) trainer. I'll be the first to admit that I don't do well with change. I get attached to people easily, but also find it hard to warm up to a "replacement" when the person I am attached to moves on. I know that over time things will be fine with Dan--but for today, I was not impressed. In the past, Tuesdays and Thursdays were heavy weights days. It was all about building strength and pushing your muscles to the point that it was hard to walk out…Continue
Over a year ago I joined the "meatless Monday" movement and with few exceptions I have been meatless on Monday. I'd say that now about half of my meals are vegetarian. Lots of data about how healthy this way of eating can be. I make sure I get LOTS of vegetables with lunch and dinner and my three fruits a day. Adding beans and low fat cheese (and not much of it) keeps me full.
Here's a link to the site and there are many good recipes there too:…Continue
Last Week's Goals
1. Keep pushing toward <2,000. Take some time to do a "monthly" reflection now that you've been tracking for that long. WOO!! Averaged 2,223. Better than LW, but I still have a ways to go. Time to break this up into baby steps.
2. Workout 4/7 days. Baby steps. Boost it up two more days. Nada. Didn't…Continue
Sometimes being a girl just isn't fun. I woke up broken this morning (TOM). Nothing like being two weeks early to the party. At least that explains some of the emotions and eating from last week. Sadly it explains the eating from today too. I was hungry all day and didn't take the time to make good choices so I'm regretting that a little bit. Plan is to walk at the gym tomorrow. For real this time.
The snowy weather has hit Maryland. It is our official first snow day. Why do I want to sit around and eat tons of junk and drink cocoa?? Oh well.... I am trying to keep myself busy so that I do not over snack.
Did any of my fellow WW friends get the information from WW on their new Simple Start program? That looks so cool and maybe something that I will take advantage of after the holiday season. A renewed vigor to jump start my New Year's resolution (continued resolution…Continue
