Weekly Update 2/26

Honestly it was an okay week nothing fantastic. I think it would have been better had we not gotten 4 inches of snow and kept the 60 degree temps! Oh well at least there's only 2 weeks left until daylight savings.

Weight- Down 0.6 lb

Food- I did okay this week but it could have definitely been better however I also realize it could have also been worse.

Exercise- Was same as with the food it could've been better but could've been worse.

Mood- Tired and honestly I…

Weekly Updates - 2/25

Weight - Down 0.2 pounds.

Food - Always a struggle. Working in an office that gets candy & snack sample is really bad for me.

Exercise - Ran 25 miles this week. I know I need to do some resistance training. I just hate not running. Ugh!

Mood - Good. Working on being mindful.

I have been using my foam roller this past week & think it will really be good. It does hurt, but I feel better afterward. I want to start a training plan. I found one for… Continue

Weekly update 2/20

Sorry this is a a day late. So not a bad week overall I worked all weekend stayed mostly on track with food however after 10-11 hour days I'm not much in the mood for exercising and I didn't gain this week but I also didn't lose any either. I definitely need to get some exercising done even after work to get through this plateau before it consumes me and I give up again. Plus 1.5 lbs to go before my goal date in 2 days. I hope everyone had a great weekend.

Better with Age

Today is my birthday--I turned the big 3-5. Honestly, I never really understood the big freak out about getting older, but maybe that's because I feel like I am getting better with age. Haha. At 35 I am more confident in my own skin, feel strong and capable, and like where I am in life. I have an amazingly supportive husband and 2 great kids (that only drive me crazy some of the time. lol). Sure, there are always things that could be better, but I am living a pretty blessed life.…

Weekly Update - 2/18

Weight - Down 1.0 pound. Relief to see it go down

Food - I did make better choices, but I still ate too much & snacked too much.

Exercise - I really kicked up my running. I ran 27 miles.

Mood - Really trying on focusing on me & not the world at large.

Today I bought myself a foam roller. I was hoping it will help me feel better. I have been running so much over the last year or better & although I do stretch afterwards it just isn't… Continue

Looking back at my WI log

I was just wondering how long ago it has been since my weight has been where it is currently because over the last 2 weeks I have had a couple people mention that I look like I've lost weight!  Well I have but was shocked that anyone noticed.  So I looked at my log and it's actually been just over 2 years since my weight has been this low!  And 3 years since I was where I want to be, in the low 130's.  Back then I was weight lifting pretty intensely and in really great shape.  Then I started…

What's cookin'?

So, it's been the past that would have meant that I fell completely off the wagon, wasn't living a healthy life, and so I was avoiding this place. Not this time! Life is just busy with 2 kids, working, and trying to spend some time with my husband. Life is also kinda boring at maintenance. In the past, I loved posting about weekly progress, sharing pictures, or talking about challenges. Now it just kinda seems like the same old boring talk all the time. However, I will try and…

Update - 2/12

Weight - Up 1.2 pounds. Not good. Result from BLT ( bites,licks,tastes )

Exercise - Running 5 days a week on the treadmill. Averaging 15-22 miles per week.

Food - Making better choices, but getting kinds of sloppy. The "just one" syndrome. It is not just one however.

Mood - I have been stressed & depressed. But I realize it is up to me to change. I cannot change the world, but I can change how I react. I am working on being the "change" I would like to… Continue

Weekly update 2/12/17

Things have been going well this week. Enjoying a relaxing weekend off. Back around Christmas time I set a short term goal that I wanted to lose 8 lbs by my birthday and I'll be honest I really didn't think that it would happen and now my birthday is in 10 days and I am less than 2 lbs away from that goal and it feels amazing. The 40-50 degree weather we've been having here in Northwest Iowa(in February) doesn't hurt either ;)

I hope that everyone is having a great…
