Today is Friday. I've spend a week just eating away... no exercise... real soda... fast food.Its been ugly. I did make one of Roni's recipes on Tuesday which was good, but that is really the only healthy thing I've done. I didn't weigh in this week. I just feel like giving up. And when you feel this way before you even really get going, its pretty bad. I am going to try to plan out my next weeks worth of meals, and I am going to try to see if I can get to the gym at least 3 times next week.… Continue

I managed to maintain a rough estimate of my calorie counts the entire weekend. So here goes:
Friday - February 26
- Food - I ate approximately 1850 calories - with over 500 coming from wine. I tallied the wine totals after the fact - Yikes! :(
- Fitness - No exercise I was still extremely sore from Thursday.

Despite all of the Margaritas last night, I actually woke up at 8 AM, put on my running clothes, kissed my husband goodbye, and headed toward the beach. I did week 3 day 3 of C25K one last time. As soon as my foot hit the sand, my mind told me that maybe I should turn back. I was running by the water so the sand was packed down,but still...it was different. It was hard, I hadn't ran in a few days, it was cold,I hadn't had anything for breakfast, and I was starting to… Continue

As the weekend wraps up I'm happy to report I was successful. Got in 8.5 miles today, ran about 7 of those. The wind was a bit stronger than last week, but we certainly jogged more of it and at a quicker pace. My running partner is still getting over being sick, so hopefully next week we'll be back to full speed.
I was fine on calories. I admittedly didn't track today, but with the run and meals I had I know I'm calorie negative.
I've got all my groceries… Continue

(1) Don't keep the wrong foods in the house!
Temptation is a beast and is our adversary's speciality. If we have empty high calorie/sugary foods in the house, it makes his job easier for us to give up and give in to eating these unhealthy foods. Speak the Word of God
when cravings hit and the enemy will be defeated.
(2) Replace the wrong foods with Godlier foods.
What are Godlier foods?… Continue

... Kind of. Points-wise, Saturday was good enough. Still, the choices weren't stellar. Too much diet soda, no exercise, food that was light on nutrition.
I did, however, find myself snacking on BBQ soy crisps and salsa to sneak in another veggie serving after work. Thanks, Roni, for sharing that combo!

Week 6- February 28, 2010
Oh gosh, it is serious this time! My mission is to lose 117 lbs. Since December I have lost 23 pounds. I have 19 pounds more to go to get back to pre-pregnancy weight
I have been struggling with weight issues for sixteen years! I had my first child 15 months ago and have had high blood pressure ever since. I am really afraid of dying of a heart attack and missing out on my daughter's life. In addition, I would like to… Continue

This post is short and sweet - I don't know why I'm so excited, but my Nike + turned orange. So I'm at another level! I love it. Great run today, even though I had to keep it inside due to the rain. Ran 5K and then walked a mile. Feeling good; feeling fit. :-)

I had a fantastic time at the conference Thursday through Saturday. It was energizing, and helpful, and I learned so much. ....but I ate horrendously. They fed us most of our meals and I did load my plate with mostly fruit and/or veggies, but I know they cooked everything in oil and/or butter. I didn't even try to count while I was there, but I woke up today just feeling nauseous and awful. It was like I had a hangover. A food hangover.
So today I'm starting fresh. I'm… Continue

Yikes, I disappeared. I can't believe I started this in November.
I'm back. Last week I got some scary news. My BP is 150/99. I've been taking BC pills to manage menopause symptoms.... but she took me off. It's been 10 days and Friday it was 150/100.

I lost nothing a few weeks ago, gained a half pound the week after that. I was frustrated because I hadn't even used all of my daily points, which some people thought might be the issue. So this week I used all of my daily points, all of my activity points, and about two-thirds of my flex points.
As of this morning's weigh in, I lost .2 pounds. I know it's a loss, and that's great, but it is SO SMALL. Am I doing something wrong? Is this a plateau? Is there something else I should try?

I've eaten crap these past two days and now I feel like crap. Boo to this...
I'm in an exercise funk...I haven't gotten the motivation to do anything. Man...I just need to realize some stuff. If its not one thing its another with me. If I'm exercising right...I don't eat right and vice versa. I don't know what to do anymore.
I'm not happy with my body...I don't like the way I look. How will I fight through this? I hate having mirrors in my room cause I don't like… Continue

Eating has been fine for the day. Cereal for breakast, 1.5 serving of homemade onion/gorgonzola pizza (Wheat pizza dough- no sauce, just caramelized onions, gorgonzola crumbles (3 ounces on the entire pizza, so not much), and walnuts (2 T on whole pizza)...it's great! Nice change of flavors!). I also had a mini muffin and about 1/2 cup of homemade seven layer dip with 7-8 chips.
I got in 5 miles, though we didn't run much (maybe 3?). Running partner is still sick and kept getting… Continue

I've been doing WW on and off for years but I recommitted about 2 weeks ago. This week has been really hard-- I've been craving sugar like crazy and it's been really hard. I've routinely gone over my daily points by 10 every day. Yesterday was not good...
I had 11 points during the day with the idea of saving up for dinner. Dinner + Drinks was about 26 points even though I didn't eat that much. Then I came home after drinks and ate like… Continue

Ok, I know I don't normally post on Saturdays, but I'm having a "Holy Crap" moment.
My husband randomly said "Let's go to the thrift store". That alone was the shock of my day, he hates shopping, until I got to the store and found this really cute coat when I first walked in. I was bummed to see a "EXPRESS (already not usually my size) 7/8" on the label, but I wanted to try it on anyway thinking "One day, it might work". Well, guess what?…

Ok so my beach run isn't hapenng today....we got here expecting it to just be my hubby & me and 2 of our friends. We walk in and there are 5 other people here that we don't know. My friend neglected to tell me that we were spending the weekend with a bunch of strangers. They're nice, but this was not what I had expected. I kept thinking about how I should go for my run today but really, I didn't want to have to tell everyone where I was going. Lame excuse, I know....but I just feel very… Continue
