No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
That's what the ring says that I've bought myself at target for $20 and therefore it's been my newest mantra for a while now.
Today people asked me how my race went. It was great to share. Somebody asked me if I got the time that I wanted and I said oh yes, I couldn't believe how well I did. They said you have to believe in yourself. Which is interesting. I just took it. But the truth is it's not that I didn't believe in myself, I just had no idea that I was even capable. I…Continue

Hi everyone, I'm a newbie here. Just stumbled onto this site and thought I would give it a go. A little about myself.
I finished Week One Day 2 today. Hooray!
I was a little sore after Day 1, so I am hoping that I am feeling okay tomorrow. I really made an effort to stretch out today after my workout. Tomorrow I am going to do a quick cardio workout, the tables with weights, and the zumba class. I am really looking forward to the zumba class. I think that it sounds like a lot of fun. I'm a little nervous about going to a new class with people that I don't know, but I think that it will be good for…Continue
I had a fabulous day on plan today. Got in a morning run/walk combo, ate super clean, and drank LOTS of water. I even went for another walk after work with the kids which was so fun! Our weather in Phx. is perfect for afternoon walks this time of year. I was thinking when the heat comes I should hop in the pool for a quick swim after work just to stay away from the pantry ;o)
So my thought for the day is this: I have a pattern I attempting to replace. My pattern is one of…Continue

I have been going strong for 2 or 3 days straight... I think 3 but I can't really remember. Today and yesterday, at least, have been very, very good for me, diet and exercise-wise! I am feeling a loss coming this weekend :) Saturday night we're having a rave at the school, and I plan on burning massive calories, and then maybe a little shenanigans after with my pals to celebrate! ;) I said I was going to stay away from the scale... it's going to be hard, I'm not even sure I will stick to…Continue

I didn’t go home this weekend and therefore stood up my scale for our weekly date. I’m sure that Frank will forgive me for the slight. It wasn’t personal; I just had too busy of a weekend in Seattle to make the trip out to Issaquah. See, this is why I’m moving into downtown. Sleeping on my mom’s couch bed is not the most comfortable or restful thing ever. It does come with the perk, though, of waking up to eggs and bacon.
I mean, who doesn’t love free…Continue

I got coffee with a friend yesterday late afternoon and boy I wish I hadn't! I'm not sure if that coffee was super-concentrated or what, because I usually do not have a problem going to sleep even with caffeine in my system, but last night I just could not get to sleep. It may have partly been the fault of a bad storm, but either way this morning I was dead tired.
Work went well. I didn't get a chance to eat all of my breakfast this morning, so this afternoon I was really…Continue
Finally, I have a goal! I just couldn't decide what I wanted my 2011 New Year's Resolution to be. So I've been resolution-less.
NOW, I have a goal.... I want to be a Success Story in a publication this year! Now, I realize I may not get chosen and that is okay. However, I do want to legitimately be able to submit my story for selection.
At the beginning of the year, I began working out with a trainer three days a week (I live in a small town so it's affordable…Continue
UP by .2 ounces. I'm not devastated even though I have been doing really well in my work outs. It goes to show you that you really need both- diet and exercise. That's why I'm so excited to have joined Weight Watchers today. I hope this program along with the support of my fellow WW participants will push me further to reach my goal.
I will post a one month after photo up soon.
Starting weight: 215.2
Current weight: 212.2
Total Lost: 3lbs

Goal update: I'm doing a lot better on tracking more honestly, but I'm still struggling with water. I should go get myself a glass while I'm thinking about it. I got a good workout chasing the toddler around an indoor play place this morning. She gets "stuck" climbing on some of the things there that are not in the specified toddler zone. Part of me wishes she were more independent and then I'd get to talk more with friends, but then I'd miss her cute giggles and smiles and I wouldn't…Continue

So I finally decided to take my measurements on day 5 of Phase 2.
Day 5 of Phase 2 inches
YAY YAY YAY!!! I was really surprised to be honest. Now if I could just loose more in my waist I will be one happy camper!!!
So I had a rough couple of days, what with eating junk and drinking wine. My weigh in had me at the same weight as last week at least, no loss though which I would really love to see. I did some soul searching and realized that my most successful times with losing weight had two things in common:
1) eating clean foods and
2) consistently exercising.
I remember I just got into this groove with it and I was crusin' along back 2 years ago when I really felt great…Continue

Morning Scale: 149.8
This Week's Loss: 0.2 lbs
Total Loss: 2.6 lbs
1. So, the scale was my friend this morning. Very, very, very glad. I was seriously ready to just chuck all of my efforts since nothing seemed to be happening. 0.2 for the whole week is not great, but it's not the gain I thought I would post so in that respect, I am happy.
2. Hungry again when I woke up this morning which means I didn't overeat last night.
3. Trying to plan…Continue

I was, quite frankly, lazy today. Did some grocery shopping and went to a restorative yoga class, but that was it.
It was heaven.
TomTorrow I'm finishing up run #4 for the week (5K), which will put me at my goal for the week. I need to polish a job application and send it out. I wasn't originally interested in this job, but with some of the current events going on I'm a bit more interested in the organization and what they do. Ultimately I think that's…Continue

The four small meals a day is working for me! I am so excited, I could never stick to 1500 calories a day for more than a few days without the help of appetite suppressants. Now I am! I am never the girl who takes home leftovers or leaves food on her plate but I was this week and it didnt kill me. I even ate healthy on my birthday, my birthday meal was roasted veggies and seared scallops and I did not waver. People at work brought cookies and donuts, and i only had a small bite of zucchini…Continue
Well, it's disheartening to go back and read my former blog posts. I haven't really been making any progress. Granted, I haven't really been trying, but still... it's annoying to have the same obstacles in my life year after year.
I'm currently sitting at 181.0. So, a little lower than when I last left off, but I still have a long way to go. I have recently started at Inches-A-Weigh. I love it there! It is such an inspiring environment and I know that I will meet my goals…Continue
The major thing that makes this Sunday sensational for me, is that I ran a near- 10k today! It's been a long time since I could run that far, although in younger fitter days a good decade ago my daily run was 6 miles. I also ran it alot faster.
But despite the brief comparison to my old self, I was nothing but EXCITED that I was able to cover that distance, running continuously. I was only focused on hitting 6 miles, so I didn't think that if I just kept going for a fifth of…Continue
