Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

January 2010 Blog Posts (802)


Oh man. It kills me how quickly time flies.

I am still exactly where I was in December. I haven't gained anything, but I also haven't lost anything. I am just kind of in limbo. I haven't really been going to the gym, but I have been incorporating more activity into my day gradually.

I have this list of all of these goals that I want to accomplish. One of the goals on my list was to blog at this site three times a week for a year. I am feeling a little sheepish about trying… Continue

So busy beating myself up I didn't realize I hit a goal!

Quick post...

I was so busy fretting over this weekends calorie splurge that I totally missed something arguably much more important.

I ran 10K without stopping.

That's right, 10 kilometers, or just over 6 miles (I jogged 7 miles on the track). During the fall I was ecstatic to just reach 1 mile and now I'm running 7.

I guess it goes to show that sometimes we all need to see the bigger picture. :-)

So far, in the past week or so that I have been dieting, I have lost 4 lbs!! I'm sure some of that is water, but it was encouraging. I have also been eating well--not crash-dieting and managing to fit a lot of nutrients into a 1200 calorie diet. What's different this time from last time (I had lost 30 lbs from practically starving myself and eventually gained almost all of it back) is that I understand what my long term goal is: to be healthy. When I was practically not eating (well, only 600… Continue

Start of week 5

I can hardly believe that I've lost 19 1/2 pounds in 4 weeks. I've really worked at staying on track with my eating and my exercise, which I do every day in some form. I know that sadly, weight loss is going to slow down as I go further along on this path so I'm reminding my brain that from now on, any loss at all each week will be a major step in the right direction. I just know that, as much as it's within my power, I want to stay on plan and continue to explore exercise as fun. It… Continue

Adventures in the Kitchen

Today I had fun experimenting in the kitchen a bit. This morning I made homemade whole wheat pancakes. They turned out really good. The hubby even liked them, and he won't consider eating anything that is whole wheat. Tonight I made strawberry crepes. The crepes were 1/2 whole wheat. They turned out REALLY good and hit the sweet spot that I've been having. And they were only 171 calories.

I have left over crepes. Tomorrow I'm going to experiment… Continue

but still on track!

Today I had O'Charleys for lunch. I haven't been there since I started WW, so I wasn't really sure what I would get. We went unexpectedly after church, so I wasn't able to look up the nutritional information online either. All I knew was that I love the rolls and the Loaded potato soup. (Neither of which sounded very good point-wise). I looked through the menu and found tilapia. In the past, I would have never ordered that, but I have a new found love for tilapia.… Continue

Really hoping I didn't just ruin my week

This week (aside from last night's bar excursion for a friend's birthday) has been really successful. I'm *really* hoping I post a loss, but after this weekend I'm not sure. Today was a high calorie day unfortunately. I'm not sure how many I had, as my friend made dinner. I'm kind of bummed with myself right now for going overboard. I guess we all have times like that.

The good news is tomorrow is a new day. I have a 4.5 mile run scheduled, so if I stay right on with my calories I… Continue

I guess I've fallen......

Off the face of the earth..... It's been so long since I updated. I don't really have any excuses other then the fact that I haven't been doing very well lately and didn't want to share my short comings with the world. But then I decided that, share them is what I should be doing. I've been doing so well with counting and running and then all of a sudden I just stopped. I stopped counting, I stopped running and frankly I stopped caring....piss poor attitude I know but what can say it's the… Continue

Could I finally be getting it??

I have been working on normal eating for the past two and a half years and have gained about 10lbs in the process...I have also not lost anything yet. I was beginning to get really frustrated. So in the new year I decided to try making an effort at weight loss again. I was a little worried that I would have the same reaction I have in the past, that making any kind of effort would make me want to rebel and push me back into old habits.

So far my fears haven't been proven true. I have… Continue

Another run. (146.8)

I am on a roll! I went for another run outside this morning (2.11 mi.). I LOVE it. Wish I could do it everyday outside!

The run started out kind of slow. I was a little sore and actually didn't think I would finish running - figured I'd walk the rest. But I pushed on and finished 2 mi. running in a little under 22 minutes. Not great time, I know, but for me it's great. Tiger Woods (Cheetah Woods - LOL!) even came on and told me I did a personal best. An 11.08 minute mile. I was… Continue

Need to Refocus!!

Focus, focus, focus! Now that I have the "house thing" at a somewhat manageable point, it's time to get back in gear. Not that I have made bad choices, I just plain haven't been eating, which of itself id a bad choice. For lunch, I had Tricuits and a few bites of cheesy pasta broccoli. Whooooo! Nutrition at it's best! So... what shall we have for supper? I have some thawed ground beef needing attention, the ever-present salmon filets in the freezer qlong with some chicken tenderloins. Maybe the… Continue

Apologies for this being non-food. We saw the house yesterday. For being empty the past 3 years, it's actually in remarkable shape. New roof, vinyl windows, WOODWORK, what appears to be newer furnace/ac/ and water heater, WOODWORK, a Jaccuzi tub and did I mention the fantasatic woodwork? Here is a picture. The power and water are shut off, so we can't make a final decision until we get the furnace and stuff looked at and the electric. It looks updated, but the old knob and tooth is still… Continue

Weigh-Day - gaining muscle?

We got a really big snow (for TN) on Friday. I won't be leaving my driveway anytime soon, but luckily I've done all the errands and grocery shopping I need to and have plenty of videos, weights, etc. to get my workouts done at home, so no excuses!

Here I am in Ryan's giant, puffy coat since I somehow do not have my own winter coat or boots. I'm from Chicago - I should be ashamed!


So - I'm a little disappointed. I… Continue

Gone too long

So it's been a few days and I have not been doing that great on my goal since I have been gone. Granted, I have a fairly decent excuse for not being on here (inlaws in town, not having a working dishwasher and the kitchen being crowded with tools regarding this, going back to work on Monday, taking a major certification interview on Friday), but not for not achieving my goal. For goodness' sake, it's simply drinking water.

To be fair, I have made an effort to drink water and drank… Continue

Working on Sunday

I have a busy Sunday so I'm going to make this a quick post. I've got to work today. I need to grade, lesson plan, and I have a basketball game to supervise. I have to drive almost an hour to the school I work at so that I can get on a drive to where I live (the game is being played in the town I live) and then when the game is over I get to drive back home. Joy. Hopefully it's a good experience.

I enjoyed having my MIL over last night for dinner and a movie. We haven't had… Continue

Motivation... Getting my butt in gear!

This week like I mentioned in my other blog Brandon and I officially decided to stop trying NOT to get pregnant! We have been discussing it for some time now and we just decided it's time. I also mentioned we are not actively trying because we don't want it to become a "job" so we are just going to keep doing what we always do and ENJOY it! haha, Fun Fun!

With all that said it did get me really excited and all l can think about is I need to get healthier for this to prepare myself… Continue
