Weekly Update - 7/5

Weight - lost 1 pound. Down 11.2 pounds since day one.

Food - Made good choices this week. Even though we had a food day at work on Friday, I made the best choices & limited the junk. A 12 mile bike ride after work helped balance things out.

Mood - It has been a real roller coaster this week. Not sure where the down in the dumps keeps coming from.

Today I went strawberry picking. They are so yummy and will help me make a better snacking choice. I am still… Continue

On the 8th Day

Eight day weigh in and according to my scale I'm down 2#s.  Was hoping for more, but I'll take it,  Being honest, its still a little hard to swallow when I've really been trying hard and for the most part I had a really good week.  I do think that I need a new scale because the one I have is old and unpredictable.  Don't worry, though, the new one will have the same words of encouragement painted on its face.…

Solo Run

There is something that at times is more difficult for me than it should be, and that is running solo.  I really do better with a friend or several friends.  I lean on them to push me and vice verse.  So when they aren't available, I often just opt out; which has been the case since Monday. 

This morning was different.  I did pull myself together and mustered enough motivation to run solo.  I even pushed myself to go a little further even when the 30 minute work out was over --- and I…

"Your not even hungry, go to bed!!!"

Sometimes I can't believe how strong my desire to eat is in the evening. I've developed the bad habit of not eating at work, the evenings I work. Then I get home and scarf down everything because I'm starving! So i've made a point to eat a good meal at work and maybe leave a few points for after work, for a snack. I'm out of points, not even hungry, and all I can think about is potato chips, and cookies. So i'm calling it a night, and in the morning I will be happy I didn't cave. Hopefully I…

Early to Bed

Well - I have to tell you that I'm thwarting off eating something that I do not need by going to bed early.  If I go to bed, I won't eat.

Breakfast:  2 Morning Glory Muffins

Lunch:  Lettuce/Tomato Salad with Poppyseed Dressing, two slices each of Ham/Turkey and some melon.

Snack:  Some nuts (like a trail mix) and some frozen cherries.

Dinner:  Steak, sauteed' mushrooms & onions,…

Catching up to today...

What’s eating out like on Jenny Craig? Not a huge amount of fun. First there’s the fear of gaining back any weight you’ve worked so hard to lose.Then there’s the conundrum of what’s a safe item to order. You skip lunch so you’ve got a few more calories leeway. Then hangry and fearful you head out. Glass of wine as you sit down to the table? No. The consultant’s advice is to switch wine for vodka and soda to reduce the calories. The waitress gives you the once…

2 Days Down...

I had a whole post typed and my browser crapped out.  So here is the short version....

Yesterday and today I really kept myself on track.  I even spent a lot of time in the kitchen doing prep for meals and ensuring that I had what I needed while at work.  Everything has been whole and clean eating.

I went on a run/walk tonight which was good.  I love when a challenge week gets easier to manage and I'm not sucking in air.  I think I'm ready to move on to week 4.  I'm looking…

Week in Review--Doin' it

Two weeks ago I committed to mixing things up, eating more protein, focusing on real foods and cutting out some of the treats. I didn't officially weigh in last week because I was working the meeting. I am proud to say that this week I was down 3.4 pounds (total for the past 2 weeks). I am super excited to see my losses kickstarted again and I'm anxious to see how it continues in the coming weeks. I've bounced around a lot in the weeks since my daughter was born and I am ready to see that…

I used to love eating. I loved the planning and research. I’m a kitchen tourist, the sort of person who sneaks into a country through the kitchen’s back door. I delve into the spices and ingredients, try and learn about the cooking techniques and the cultural history of dishes. Like a magpie I then make off with the shiniest treats from around the globe. Shrimp paste from Indonesia, fish sauce from Thailand, barberries from Iran, olive vegetable from Hong Kong, fermented tofu from…

Weekly Goals: 6/28/2015

Hi All,

Here's my weekly goals as prescribed by my holistic health coach--

  • Use my planner. This is where I plan my week including things that I'll do for my "primary" food groups (spirituality, creativity, etc.)
  • Give myself unconditional permission to eat. Get rid of the idea that certain foods are bad. When you get rid of the idea that certain foods are “bad,” then…

Holistic Health Coach

Hey Ladies!

I missed my last weekly check in. Super busy last weekend as our kitchen remodel got under way. HOORAY! We've hired a contractor, but needed to prepare meals and pack up about half of our 1st floor as most of the layout is changing.

2nd exciting update--I signed up to work with a holistic health coach. Not cheap, but man...I REALLY want to end my obsession with food, health, weight, numbers, sizes, etc. I had my first session with her a little over a…

52 Days

You sick of me?  I'm sick of me!  I can't even stand to hear myself talk anymore.  I am 52 days away from the "BIG one" birthday and well.....I am no where even close to having lost 50 x 50.  In fact, I'm back up to my starting weight from when I joined BTL. (Jan 2013)

Simple, Realistic Small Goals

I signed up to do Weight Watchers online yesterday. I wanted to walk through the eating component with a little more structure. I've been on WW before. In the past it was all or nothing. I put pressure on myself to lose weight quickly so I was very strict, set impossible goals, and stressed out. Naturally I set myself up for discouragement and failure. This time I don't feel an urgency to lose the weight quickly. I set realistic goals. I set my goal weight to be 3 pounds less than I am now…

Day 1 - Paradigm Shift

This is new for me.  I usually embark on a task knowing the end date.  So it has been with dieting.  I'd tell myself, "I want to lose 10 pounds by this date."  Today I realized there is no end date on this journey.  My outlook now is "Just do your best, and let's see what happens, when it happens."  I have a goal weight in mind, but I don't know when I will get there.  That's ok!  I have a healthy lifestyle in mind for the rest of my life, and that is what I'm going to work towards everyday.…
