No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I thought today's WW meeting was really good. I love our leader, she is so funny and upbeat. We talked about having a buddy to help you during your healthy lifestyle changes. I completely agree with this concept. Sometimes I think it's easier said than done. When I first started WW in 2005, I didn't really tell anyone about it. I was embarrassed of my weight and I didn't want to call attention to myself. I didn't want to be the girl on another "diet". I was still trying to figure out…Continue

OK so today I tried to eat a little more through out the day. It kind of worked, but by 4:00 I was getting pretty crabby, hungry and desperate for food. I went to a fast food joint. Not to worry, I got a plain baked potato and a small side salad. It worked to fill me for several hours, but I still really didn't feel full. I know the hunger pangs won't be around for long, but it's going to be a rough couple of weeks until my stomach gets used to this.
I was talking to my…Continue

Can't believe I passed up pizza lunch at work and then right after dinner had a 1/4 cup of almonds and probabl 1/2 or more of cheese pretzels! I know it was emotional snacking - I wasn't hungry but tired. Been putting extra hours in at work and I'm tired! At least I got on the treadmill for 20 minutes. I was going to skip it but thankfully I didn't. I'm not going to beat myself up to bad - I'm not on a diet but learning a healthier lifestyle. . . . .

Well, it was time. Time for another change in my workout. I am going with a five day split that works each muscle group twice a week. One, which is a heavy day, and the other a light day. This allows for enough recovery time for the muscles. Cardio will also be added in and will probably be five or six days a week.
I have found that my body responds much better to this type of workout. I tried using another program which used mostly body weight and high reps, and…Continue

Ican't believe that tomorrow is April 1st and where I live in Pa they are calling for 12 plus inches of snow. And people say we didn't screw up the ecosystem. Anyway I'm super ready for the winter to be over and for spring to begin. I didn't go to my weigh in yesterday, I chose to go out to dinner and a movie with my husband. we don't spend all that much time together because of his work schedule and when he is home he's helping me with the wasg or dishes and taking care of the kids so…Continue

Well! I'm on track and doing well.
As Roni put in her blog this week - structure is so helpful to me. In every form of my life, not just weight loss. It's all about parameters and routine.
On a role to meet my week's weight target. I'm really focused on staying accountable to my plan! Kick some BUTT!
Got in 60 on elliptical today. Down8.1 pounds from last Thursday (water weight anyone?). Still really nice to see that number drop. I'll take it…Continue
still on track! I ended up going to the gym and doing 45 min of cardio yesterday. I also made shrimp with barley and a salad for dinner. Today has been a crazy day since I have school and work, my Tuesdays and Thursdays are always crazy. I grabbed my oatmeal on the way out the door and grabbed a southwest salad and yogurt parfait from McD's for lunch. Here is my meals so far for today.
Kashi go lean oatmeal - 150
McD salad with balsamic dressing -…Continue

So...Apparently ANY good news/event in my life must be immediately accompanied by a COLD! And this one has been a doozy! I thought it was allergies, but at work on Monday...BAM! My nasal passages slammed shut, tastebuds went on strike and my head filled with gallons of....Ah. I'll spare the details. I have NOT been a happy camper!
Today I can taste again. Odor detection is in and out and half of my body weight is wadded up in used tissues. The humidifier is a God-send, especially…Continue
I am in my 4th day of restaring my weigh loss journey for the 100th time. It hasn't been easy. It would have been much easier to stop tracking and just start eating anything I wanted. Yup, that would have been the easy way out but I know the easy way out is not an option. I think the hardest thing for me has been realizing that I am not one of those people who can eat anything they want (very few people really are) and worse yet I often can not trust myself to make the right decision. …Continue
Well I can't even count how many times I said these words "Here we go again." Anyways after I got through eating dinner last night I got really down on myself. I haven't been doing extremely bad eating. I've been maintaining my weight, but why is it so hard for me to exercise. Im a stay at home mom. I have a gym membership with child care. I have all the time in the world. Why can't I get off my ass and workout. Well…Continue

I've set out to complete a new project. I'm going to write a book. I would never have thought to do this project before I began my journey last December, but now it seems like the right thing to do. I'm motivated when I think of helping others and so I want to write a book about how I found the motivation and inspiration to lose weight and enjoy the journey.
If you have a…Continue

OK, so I usually try to write a little about how my day is going and add something that may help someone. I hope that someone gets something from what I write down. Today, however, I am just going to complain! It's the end of March, and today I was driving in a snowstorm that was a whiteout. I mean, I have had it with winter. What happened to global warming. I am no longer a believer!
The good news?
They CAN die!
I am an ex-smoker. I started smoking at 18 (I know, kind of weird to start then, but whatever) and I have smoked off and on now for 10 years. Yikes. I guess I hadn't realized it had been that long! Anyway, the only time I ever really smoke freely was when I lived in Pennsylvania ( away from my parents) or on my own. My parents really disapproved, especially my mom since my birth dad died of cancer. So if I lived at home and once I got married, I was…Continue

Tuesday I ended up having a few pieces of pizza for dinner. I didn't want them but hubby pushed me to it. I didn't exercise either but had a blast with my grand baby's.
Wednesday was much better. Had healthy meals, ran on the treadmill and did more upper body weights. Tomorrow my work is bringing in pizza but I have a lunch packed and ready to go :) I don't think the pizza will be calling my name!
Third day down and I think I'm doing pretty good.
