Jethro and green socks

I need to get my bloggin' groove back. I push the 'add' button and stare at the screen with a 'wtf do I write about?' mentality. Like I can't even think of something to stick in the title line. So, I decided to just throw some random stupid words that have nothing to do with anything. I don't just happened....

Today was good but tomorrow will be better since we have the day off. I am seriously counting down the working days that we have left. It seems like everyone at…

I need to find my motivation

Frankly I've lost my motivation for too long. I could come up with excuses, but I am only fooling myself. As Angie stated, it's May. MAY!! I've been slacking long enough. I am tired of being fat. I am tired of the cycle. Eat good, eat bad, start over. I want to eat good. Not starve, not feel deprived. I need to stay away from that evil, nasty, sugar. Frankly it usually couples itself with fat for the most deadly combo. I just don't…

He Won the War!

A few weeks ago, I posted about my youngest son and bullying.

Again, I know this has nothing to do with blogging to loose, but I thought, I'd provide you with a little follow up on and a Proud Momma Moment.  Last Thursday we had a rematch against his old school in Tennis.  The game was away for us, which meant he had to go back to his old school campus.  As a momma, I was a bit worried that he…

Weekly Check-In

I weighed in last night, but didn't have a chance to get on to do my weekly check-in. I lost 1.4 pounds this week. I was actually a little surprised, not because I didn't have a good week, but because my body seems to be trying to rebel on the scale. That brings my total to 32.2 pounds. People are starting to notice more and that feels good.

Things I am proud of this week: (It was a BIG week for me!)

1. I ran an entire 5k without walking for the first time ever! I can't…

175 Days Away

That equals exactly 25 weeks until my BFF's wedding.  Now I need to commit to making every day count and I will be able to take off some serious weight between now and then.  Now I just need to get my head in the game.

Doing what I know should work

When I first started blogging and losing weight (almost 2 years ago - gasp!) I blogged every day and wrote down everything I ate and the calorie count.......religiously.  I would also write my exercise and how many calories I burned........religiously. It worked. Then I slowly got out of the habit but I really want to start that back up again. I know I need it. I know I need to commit to blogging more despite how mundane I think my day has been. These days, mundane is just fine!

I was…

Learning to balance

I have an admission to make as part of healing/growing process. I have spent a lot of years hiding the fact that I cannot juggle everything. I have spent many years putting on a good front to all those around me when inside I a, sacrificing my happiness and health to make myself look like super woman. And now that being said I am far from perfect I can't as of yet learn how to balance living a healthy life while still enjoying life. I feel like to be healthy I have to be completely healthy with… Continue

I'm NOT out!

Don't count me out.  Please don't count me out.  And surly, I'm not a fly by night, I promise.  I am totally committed to finding resolve this year.

The later part of March and all of April have been spent running with the kiddo to Tennis practice and games.  We also had a death in the family last week and things have just been a little off.  I am soooo ready to get my poop together as I head into May.

Recap of the last 6 weeks:

Exactly what I did on my days off plan.

Ok after spending some time thinking about it.....I guess I didn't do as badly as I thought I had on the 3 days off plan. One of those days I actually ate more than once which is good because I thought I only had 1 meal each day. Even still it doesn't compare to the binge out days of old and I'm 2 days back in the right direction. 

1st day

Left-over turkey spaghetti with whole wheat noodles (about 3 servings in one sitting)

2nd day

Breakfast: eggs…

Things are Changing

The last few weeks I've felt different. And I like it. I feel stronger and more confident. I feel more at peace with the way I currently look, even though I know I am not at my goal yet. I've wanted to dress up more and look nice when I go out--even if it is just to run errands. I caught myself in the mirror after my run today (in spandex pants and a tank top, which I NEVER thought I would do) and actually thought "wow, she looks fit" The funny thing is, all of these feelings have nothing to…

Checking In....

       Just poking my head in, seeing how everyone is doing. April is pretty much shot, I got sucked into the genealogy abyss for Hubby's Mom's side. Apparently I married my cousin!!! lol  We're talking pre-Civil War, so its not like we met at a family reunion! I would be willing to wager a large sum of money that most of this county is related to each other, one way or another. Especially those of us whose families came after the Revolution. My grandfather's farm was someone's bounty for…

Can't bare the thought of a swimsuit :(

My trip is coming up in a little over 2 weeks, and I should be so excited. Instead, I'm sulking over how I will look in my swim suit and dresses. Bummer. We will spend lots of time by the pool (usually such a treat, but not when you feel huge). Maybe it's just the day, but I'm extremely tired and down and most of all, mad at myself for not kicking it in gear before this amazing trip, and realizing 2 weeks is not enough time to make the changes I would like. Also mad at myself for getting…

I seem to have a tendency to take the weekend off. I keep a food diary for the most part, but it is a more relaxed, less structured time for me. My husband and I usually go out to eat on Friday night, which, depending on how the week went, includes an adult beverage. I weigh in on Friday mornings, so my food week starts then. I am putting more time and effort into exercise, so while I may not record all of what I eat, I do keep track of that. I also have a calendar near the spinning…

I Look Away

So now that the weather is nicer and I am unemployed (not ready to talk about it yet) I've walked a few mornings at the river that I love to walk at.  It's a nice walk.  Not challenging, but not easy either due to the distance.  It takes just about an hour but I'm trying to figure out ways to stretch that hour out some!  Anyway today I noticed that I look away every time I approach someone walking in the other direction or sitting on the bench.  I mean, I'm not rude.  If someone says hi I…

HOLY... WHAT?! Please Help!

The last time I signed in to this site was nearly 4 years ago.  See that cute baby in the photo?  She's 5 now!  Her little brother is 2.  I moved back to New York.  I had post-partum and everything-partum depression.  And I gained 40 pounds.  On top of the 40 extra pounds I'd had all along.

I just reread my previous posts and want to cry and laugh to think that I thought I was in a desperate situation then!  What I wouldn't give to see 180s on the scale!  It's the 210s now.  I…

Controlled chaos?

The last food journal I posted was for 4 days ago on 04/24 because I kinda went off my plan a bit. On 04/25 - 04/27 I only ate once daily and there was definitely no portion or carb control going on, but I didn't really go overboard. Today I slept away most of the day (it was storming fiercely outside) and then continued on "plan". Ughh I just have to get my bodyclock readjusted now. Oh I almost forgot to mention that I must have done something right because Saturday was my weigh-in day and…

Getting back to basics is what is necessary

I didn't make the gym but we did go for a long walk in the city today. Too bad my bike was out of commission (although now it's fixed) or we would have gone riding. The truth is that I worked most of yesterday and then got frustrated because the particular work I was doing I'm not very good at and I was getting super frustrated. Then I made and drank some cosmos. Then we went out to celebrate a friend's birthday - pizza and mezcal drinks and lots and lots of fun. Today I was a total veg…

A Busy Weekend

I drove to St Louis Friday night with my hubby so that I could wake up early Saturday for the Color Run.  It was a lot of fun!  I was COVERED and soaked by the time it was over since it was raining the entire morning.  Here's a few pics from the race:
