No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
My weight this morning is the same as last week (150.8) but, every other time I've stepped on the scale I was up! So seeing the same weight today was a happy thing! I want to break into the 140's, hopefully in the next couple weeks!
My stomach has continued to be a problem. Which means I don't want fruits and veggies and I just want carbs and soothing foods. I haven't had much of an appetite but those foods being higher calorie I'm still where I should be calorie-wise (although…Continue

So last week with my belly upset, I was concerned that I wouldn't lose or might even gain. I wasn't eating much but then when I did eat it wasn't my usual healthy diet I wanted pretty much straight up carbs. Also I didn't get any walks or hikes in! So I'm really glad to see a nice loss on the scale this week!
Lots going on in the weeks before school starts. Just trying to take in the most of the summer days that I can with my family!
I have some trips coming up in the…Continue
I've started meal prepping lunch this week! I have grilled chicken, brown rice, and vegetables available. I didn't put them all in ready to go containers due to lack of containers, but it's on my list of things to get! I'm hoping this is an easy way for me to grab a healthy lunch while my toddler runs around the house. haha
So here's a question for you....
what are some afternoon snacks you enjoy?
Afternoon snack time I have a tendency…

I've not felt great since Monday little appetite and on and off nauseous. Monday and Tuesday I didn't even eat half of the salad that I packed for work. Today I was feeling much better until after lunch. I'm not sure what is going on with me but when I do want to eat I want pure carbs, rice, oatmeal...bland carb-y foods. I'm hoping that I feel better soon so I can get back to my normal eating!
Got some stuff done today regardless. My daughter had her before school physical. Then…Continue

So at first glance I was thinking that I needed to experiment and lower my calories. I stayed the same last week but had good losses the 2 weeks prior and now another loss. Looking at the big picture, this is week 4 and I have lost 5 pounds total! That is not bad at all and I'll take it and be happy! I'm not suffering at all with the slightest hunger. I'm not feeling deprived! During those 4 weeks I have been to 3 parties, gone out to eat at 2 restaurants, made my famous pizza and wings…Continue
I'm still here and still doing morning workouts! Well, actually we went to Ohio last week so I had about a week off of traditional workouts. We went swimming and I danced all night at the wedding...that counts right?!, haha! That was accompanied by the worst types of food though :(
Now that my working out has become almost second nature, I'm ready to start focusing on the food aspect of improving myself. I'm not exactly sure how I want to approach this. My breakfast and…Continue

I'm not upset at all I was on target all week and I even started a little bit of exercise. I forgot to discuss with my doctor, last week if I had the ok to start a little bit of exercise. In my head as long as I'm not pushing myself and putting too much strain on my joints I think he would actually welcome it.
As much as I wanted to have lost a half pound this week, to make my total loss over the 3 weeks to be 5 lbs, I know that around week 3 I usually have a slight stall and…Continue
I've been working on getting my mojo back after injuring my right knee in March. Thinking I'd just made it sore, I procrastinated about going to the doctor for 2 months. When I finally did, he said I'd torn the cartilage and they couldn't repair it. But, they could do arthroscopic surgery and remove the damaged cartilage.
I had the surgery on June 17. It was quick and painless and I was back to a "normal" routine the next day. But I was advised to stop running and stick to activities…Continue
Today was WI day and I'm down another 1.5 LBS! That's pretty good considering that we had our older daughter's graduation party this past Sunday! It was fantastic but exhausting! I cooked for 2 days then we had the party, it was a blur, then we had to clean up, pack up both cars, drive home then unpack everything, I was exhausted, maybe even a little dehydrated. I felt ill. I wasn't sure if I was going to make it to work on Mon. but I felt much better in the morning. Work is crazy…Continue
I just completed the 2nd week of my StepBet Challenge. So far, so good. I have been able to hit my goal Mon-Sat and then take a rest day on Sunday.
It has definitely motivated me to move a lot more. My husband is participating also, so we've been holding each other accountable. We are…Continue
I feel like working out in the morning is becoming routine. I don't really think twice about it or think of it as an option, I just do it. I like that. I also like that for the first time in my life if I miss a workout or it doesn't work with my schedule, I just move on to the next day. I used to feel like a failure for not being "perfect" but somehow my attitude is different. I'm liking it!
