No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
There isn't much to report on this front lately, I've been sick and therefore more concerned with fueling properly rather than working off said fuel. I'm shooting for tomorrow to do some morning yoga before I start my school work for the day.
I wanted to take a minute and look back at the goals that I had for 2011. I'm thinking about taking a page out of Shannon's book (I should take entire chapters, she is so wonderful) and set monthly and weekly goals for myself. So here…Continue

So I reached my goal weight! 125lb I really stuck to a nutrition plan. I had my 2 Visalus Shakes a day and a nutra-cookie for a snack. I have not had any reward ice cream in 2 weeks! I am not hungry and not bored with the shakes at all. Now that I met my goal I am drinking one shake a day and eating a protein bar in the morning.
The one thing I can't seem to stick to is exercise. So this week I want to try one new class. I'm thinking Zumba, I've heard good things.
My eating is…Continue
small banana 100
Starbucks Skinny Macchiato 110
*rice w/ pumpkin split pea soup 150
* halava 150
* veggie mixture 150
Salad 250 (chicken, beans, and veggies)
So this weekend I kind of fell off the wagon as far as continuing to work out and eating healthy. I am kind of frustrated.
I went to the store and got a bunch of healthy snacks but they really didn't taste good. I looked up some new recipes to try but never got around to doing so this weekend like I had planned. Instead my best friend came over to celebrate my birthday (a week later) by cooking up some Cajun Crab. He wanted to go to Joe's Crab Shack but I suggested we just make it at…Continue

Weekends are very hard for me for a few reasons:
1. A feel like they are a little holiday from my usual routine and so I tend to over eat, eat things I shouldn't and I don't exercise
2. I'm usually around family that temp me to eat a little of this and that.
3. I'm often not close to a computer to get support
Overall, I did okay this weekend. I did not go the WW meeting. But I stayed on my plan. Next weekend I'd like to do better.
Where to begin?
How about where my world completely turned upside down yesterday? Yep, that sounds like a good spot. I was working on my computer, about to start grading papers last night when my sister sent me an IM on facebook. It read, "Will you adopt my unborn baby?" I thought she must be kidding. She wasn't. It was either she would get an abortion or I would adopt her baby. After talking with the hubby, we agreed. She's at the dr. office today since she started…Continue
First thing’s first, the winners of the book giveaway are Emma and Bethany as per Random.org’s random number chooser-majig. Please use the contact form to send me your shipping info. I hope that you love the book as much as I did.
This morning I dreaded the idea of stepping on the scale. I’m still a little swollen and to combat some of the nasty symptoms of all the medication I’ve been taking, I’ve been drinking a LOT of soda. I was drinking it for the sugar but I knew that it would…Continue

For those of us in the Midwest/ Ohio Valley region, today is a prep day for the impending DOOM that has been forecast. ( And I will be MOST unhappy if it's wrong!!) As most of you have figured out, I'm a sadist when it comes to weather. I'm happiest when a good storm rolls through. I don't even mind the occasional power outage. Just keep the water and gas going! I do prefer that the power outages happen in the warmer seasons, since we don't have a wood stove. The new house DOES have a gas…Continue
What I saw, thought, loved, remembered, etc:
1. Favorite t-shirt - "Dear God, please let there be someone behind me to read this...". (Yes, I passed her.)
2. Second fav t-shirt - "Does this shirt make my butt look fast?"
3. Favorite poster "Chuck Norris never ran a marathon!" (Frankly, neither have I, since I only did a half, so Chuck and I have something in common.)
4. Favorite moments - Coming through the chute at the end of the race. It was loud, packed…Continue
At least by writing on this blog I can see when I am going up and down in weight, sad that it is showing within 18 days. So I got on the scale today and it read 198. This is up. I am not really surprised as I did eat just about everything in site this weekend. Not that it was all terrible stuff, but portion control was just not there. I feel bad that I went back up, but I know that I am the only one that can change it. I also think that this site will help as I can see that in an 18…Continue

Woo Hoo! Sports fans unite! Super Bowl XLV is coming up this weekend and I am excited! A warning to anyone reading this post: all I'm going to talk about is football, so if you hate football you might as well move on.
Super Bowl XLV features the Green…
I'll be traveling to FL with my sister to see our Dad in about 3 weeks so I decided I should try on some spring clothes and see what my options are to take on the trip. Yeah, umm, not so much. Let's just say my options are limited at best. I have clothes that fit, but they're tight and look like crap. I'm really, really hoping I can stay focused and lose 3 lbs in the next 3 weeks. It will at least help a little. Oh, by the way, I only tried on tops, no bottoms. I'm probably going to be too…Continue
ME that's who! Lost 2.2 this week! Yes, finally, a nod from the scale that I'm doing okay. I'm feeling pretty good about that loss. I've been feeling pretty good since last week in general. I really just ignored the scale and just kept with my goals, and it paid off. AND I'm out of the 150's. HELLO 140's! And for the record, I'm still going to ignore the scale this week. :-D
My clothes are definitely fitting better now and that in itself is a huge reward. My…Continue
