Spring Break Thursday

Well Ladies --- everyone must be on vacay.  LOL

So I talked myself into a 2.25 mile run this morning before I go into work in a short while.  I have a conference call to take regarding our Phase III roll out coming up.  I really didn't want to do it; but I made myself.  Just now while I was sucking down some water I thought - "Now don't you feel better?".  and YES, I do!

I was off yesterday and got the house cleaning done so we can enjoy the weekend.  I really am getting stuff…

Dang Jelly Beans ....

Well I hope everyone who celebrated had a great Resurrection Day.

Just chilled at home for the most part.  Hubs and I got a lot of yard work done.  Gutters cleaned, weeds pulled, bushes taken out, grass mowed and a whole line up of projects to come.

Both boys were home this weekend.  Its so nice to have #1 son home.  He's grown into this fabulous young man.  I so enjoy our conversations.  I really am a proud momma.  He has less than 45 days until he graduates with is…

I was happy to make it back to my Weight Watchers meeting this week. I was even more pleased to see that the scale was down 1.4 pounds. This puts me 1.6 pounds away from my goal weight. I'd love, love, love to hit that next week right before I leave for vacation (because let's be real, I'm sure I'll come back with some weight to lose after vacation. Lol). I guess in the grand scheme of things hitting that goal before I leave isn't that big of a deal since I know there will be more work to do…

Happy Easter

Today was a good day. I made good choices & I got in a 4 mile outdoor run. It was about 44 degrees but at least the rain stopped. I want to get outside running more. I like my treadmill too, but running outside is so much better. So far this month has gone incredibly well. I have been losing weight all month. There was one week where all I lost was 0.2 pounds but I will take any loss I can. I am still in shock that I lost 6 pounds this month. It has been like forever since I had that kind… Continue

Weekly Update - 3/26

Weight - Down 1.6 pounds. I cannot believe I lost weight 4 weeks in a row. It helps me so much.

Exercise - Running 4 days & 1 day of upper body workout. Taking rest days has really helped my body recover.

Food - Good choices & calorie counting (Yes, I still hate it) are working for me so far.

Mood - Up. I mean losing weight has made me happier. Makes me want to keep trying hard. My hard work is finally paying off.

Ahhhhh Spring Break At Last....

I've been trying to get on here to post a mid-week update, but never did.

I've done pretty well this week figuring out what is going to work for me after this office move.  I know it doesn't sound like it should change that much, but it has.  The whole dynamic of our office has changed.  We use to be our own entity and now we are clumped in with all the other administrative departments.  Our third floor space is shared with two other departments.  We are still waiting on a fridge to…

Flex Friday

We are back among the living! I've never been so glad to get out of the house and workout! It's been a crazy  month with lots of sickness and some celebrations mixed in. Still reaching for the elusive last 3 pounds to get back to pre-pregnancy weight, but I'm feeling better about how I feel and look. Looking at pictures from recent celebrations has helped because I don't always see int he mirror what I actually look like (for better or worse). It's like when I am at my biggest, I don't feel…

Been away awhile

It's been a long 12 days. Not really watching my calories but still trying to limit carbs and alcohol calories.  I have to say I feel much better without the carbs but I have had a a head cold and I haven't been able to get a work out in.  Once I get home from school I am literally wiped out.  Maybe this weekend I can get some treadmill time in.  I am making Easter and trying to stay healthy with the meal as well.  

Enjoy your weekends and get some outdoor time in as well!

Snowed in??

There is like 6 inches on the ground & it is to continue through the night. If the roads are not plowed here in the morning, I am stayin home. Thank goodness I don't have crap in the house. Sometimes these snow days turn into hiding under a blanket snacking.

So I haven't been on here in like 7 months but now I'm back:) 

A lot has changed since I last posted anything. I am now engaged we are getting married in October. This is motivating me and stressing me out all at the same time. I am motivated because I want to be healthier and mostly because of ALL those pictures! However it is also stressing me out because I realize how hard it is and and how far I have to go yet. I have been doing Profile by Sanford since December and…

I thought it was spring.

Big snow storm is on its way. Really? Hasn't Mother Nature realized it is Spring?? Today was in the 50's. I wanted to run onthe trail but they have not opened the restrooms there so there isn't anywhere for me to change. I know, it is a weak excuse, but I did run for 4 miles on my treadmill after work. I am doing well with my calories but it does not mean I don't want to eat. I sometimes feel myself wanting to binge, but so far I have not. I have allowed myself a easier day on Saturday but… Continue

Had another decent day.  No run like I'd planned, but a good day.  My iphone decided to quit counting my stairs...I'm not happy.  I need to figure out why.  Any iphone users with some insight?

I escaped the urge for Hershey kisses today.  No peeps in the house, which I don't know why I ate that one little blue one yesterday.  I really don't even like peeps.  Anyway - I stuck to my planned meals.  But a few moments ago, the hubs pulled out the coconut ice cream.  I had a 1/2 cup…

I just got a legit job today! At the local ice cream place. Talk about temptations eh? It's not just ice cream it's greasy burgers and onion rings and nomnomnommm lol I'm making a promise to myself to not eat it. I will not get into that habit! I'm so glad to have found another job though I've been feeling the pain of the money loss since I quit my last job in December. Extra money equals healthier grocery lists for me .. new shoes... new workout clothes and of course continuing with my… Continue

Outside of food how does our behavior change once we get healthy?

I'm copying this from my blog 'A fat guy in a little coat'. The greater context is what happened to Today instead of some sort of attempt to be insightful, I thought I'd tell a story. This story isn't really about me at all, but when it happened I think I understood why it did. In the same way I think I get where Jared went wrong.

Because I think I have one or two friends from high school reading this I'll change the names around. A lot of my later in life friends may not know that… Continue

Something so small...

It amazes me that a small loss can make such a big difference in how I feel about myself. The last three weeks I have lost weight and although it is not big losses, it has been so big in improving my mental well being. What a motivator to continue on. When I wasn't losing it was so hard to want to eat right or go for a run. Now I want to. I don't want to binge because I don't want to blow the success I have been having lately. I am very hopeful that this whole thing is going the right way.
