Rough around the edges

That's kind of how I feel right now. The last couple of weeks have been full of excessive exhaustion, over-eating, not enough exercise, and general feeling like crap. I have many days of restarts and fails giving up. I have to admit that every morning I wake up "focused" and ready to face the day, and by the end of the day that Dairy Queen blizzard is calling me name. I have been craving them, so I have been indulging (almost daily). I have pretty much maintained my weight during…

CHALLENGE: Night Time Snacking.

I'm revisiting this old challenge because I'm DESPERATE. I just can't stop snacking after the kids go to bed!

Some of us do it out of boredom some out of pure exhaustion. We mindlessly munch while watching evening TV or grab something from the fridge while heading to bed (I just did that last night.) I don't think all night time eating is bad and I don't think we need to make some ridiculous unachievable goal like.. "I'm never going to eat after 7PM again,…

Tuesday feels like Monday (1781)

It was so hard to get up and go to work. I am still experiencing tummy trouble. After multiple trips to the bathroom I found that I just didn't bring enough food. So what happened? I broke open a good size bag of bagel chips(garlic) and since I was so hungry I ate the whole damn bag. I really hate when I do that! I have no more crap at my desk at work so that should not happen again. Happy Tuesday.

Day 3

Well today I tried the liquid diet I thought maybe I could do it for a few days but Im quickly changing my mind. I had a protein shake for breakfast and juice and water the rest of the day.I havent felt well this after noon. I got really dizzy and irratable. I started an awful fight with my husband and sobbed my eyes out. I think its from not eating. Now its dinner well late dinner time we had a busy day and Im so dizzy and light headed. I really thinks its from not eating so I have decided…

My Weekend in Pictures

I wanted to include a few photos of my weekend to share.

This is a butterfly from the Butterfly House in St. Louis.  Isn't it gorgeous?  The hubby and I walked around for nearly two hours taking photos.  It's 85* and 75% humidity in there!

Not exactly day one.....

Well i won't lie this isn't my first go at weight loss in fact i have lost 40lbs so far. My main reason for doing this is for my health, looks (i won't deny it) and my wedding next month.

The problem is i am losing motivation. I fit in my dress (can't lose anymore or it won't fit)…

The Longest month EVER!

So the month of May is my favorite and the longest month of the year!  Our celebrations include;

My Birthday

Mothers Day

My sons Birthday

My nephews Birthday

My Brothers Graduation (This year only)

Memorial Day


My Anniversary


Did I mention I'm tired and sunburned and stuffed to point of no return?  When did May explode into this beast of cake, ice cream, pizza, alocholic beverages and outdoor celebrations?  However,…

Memorial Day eating...

All in all, I did not do too bad yesterday and am pretty proud of myself! I did not even attempt to count points, however I will stick to my daily points for the rest of the week and assume that I used all of my weekly points already.


I made some decent choices (compared to those I would have made in the past), and still got to eat my favorite foods. At family BBQs I LOVE the sides... pretty much all of them. So I passed on the hamburgers and hotdogs and instead only ate the…

Planning This Week

I sat down yesterday after returning from my anniversary trip to plan out the week.  It was wonderful to enjoy this weekend and not plan or count, but now I need to be back on track.  I feel as if this week will help to define the rest of my summer and I can't let it be full of laziness and nothing.  I have things to do!


So here's the plan for today (although I had put everything on a time schedule and I'm now already behind!):  

Breakfast of rice krispies in skim milk…

Something Different

"Everything is permissible"--but not everything is beneficial. "Everything is permissible"--but not everything is constructive." 1 Corinthians 10:23

It feels good to be doing something different!

Day 345

I didn't weigh myself this morning.  And I don't plan to for three weeks. 

This is my final countdown to a year of eating healthy and losing weight.  I started this June 21st 2010 and I've lost 80 - 85 lbs.  I've exercised conistantly, lost a bunch of inches and gone down several sizes.  I've changed my habits and my life.  I've met some goals and fallen short of some.  I've had days where I'm proud of myself and times where I've regretted the decisions I made. 

My original…

A weekend in Ohio

So I went home for the holiday weekend, stayed with the folks and saw a lot of family and friends.  It was a much needed break from the hustle of work and the city, however, this entailed drinking and eating heavily for most of the weekend.


That said, it wasn't terrible.  At no point did I totally say f*ck it and eat myself into a coma.  I even had a turkey burger one day.  (Admissions of this nature are why I will never tell any friend of mine that I write…

Hot Hot Hot day

Man was it hot.  Just lovely.  Hubby and I walked to the store and then later headed to subway and walmart.  I did laundry and cleaned and made sloppy joes. 

At subway, I got a 6in chicken sand but I couldn't eat it, just wasn't hungry.  I thought that was odd, then I sat down and tracked my food.  I ate 92 pts yesterday!!! Almost 3 times what I should in a day.  WOW!  Today I have 11 left over.  It doesn't quite balance out.  It will though if I don't go over my daily points at all…

It is HOT here (1177)

It was so warm here today. Heck we've been waiting for spring/summer forever here. Yesterday I was in long sleeves and jeans, today it is shorts and a tee and I am hot. All in all it was a good calorie day. I lacked a bit on the veggie/fruit, but made good choices overall. Tomorrow it is time to get back into work mode. I did my Power 90 Sweat DVD and sweat I did. Yikes I forgot how hot it can get when the temps get above 60. Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend.

Yesterday was a good day


Yesterday was a good day.  I started this new thing where I'm eating dinner in the morning and breakfast in the night, I'm trying to give myself some verity so I stay on track.  I started writing this post on Friday morning, I held things together until Saturday and then the s**t it the fan.  I had everything ready to go and I just couldn't get myself to make the choices that I know I should be making.  I know what I should be eating, I know that I should be drinking water and I…

Seven Years

I've been gone this holiday weekend.  The hubby and I celebrated our seven year anniversary yesterday.  We went to StL because our friend was also celebrating her 30th birthday and another friend from LA was flying in for the festivities.  It was so nice to see them all.  


While out this weekend, I've eaten a lot.  I was uncomfortably full a few times and today was the first day I felt hunger.  Not a good sign.  But tomorrow will be better; I'll be back on track and starting…

The Power of a Vote.


 Ok. Bear with me. This has a point. Although completely unrelated to weight loss.


When I applied to work for USPS two years ago, I had to take a standardized Clerical test. Super easy. Basic math, alphabetizing, following directions. I passed easily, but I remember thinking that I could have done better. I didn't realize it at the time, but this test had NO connection to the actual nature of the work I would be doing.


Fast forward to a few…
