No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I just realized today that I'm a few days past the one month mark of when I started really getting serious with exercise and eating well. I haven't weighed myself and I think I'm going to ask my trainer to hold off on this 'total body analysis' for one more month. I am supposed to get one once a month but I'm so scared to know any numbers at this point for fear of both failure and success. Some of you may know I've decided to completely ditch the scale at least in the beginning. It has been…Continue
So, as of late, I have been broke as shit and can't really afford any good or bad food. My dinner for the evening? Popcorn and water.
Until I get paid again(this Thursday) that is probably all I'll be having.
But I've been reminiscing about my past diet failures and successes. Once I…Continue

I wanted to reflect a little on this week.
It's been a pretty meh week. I've felt more of the emotional ups and downs that come with exploring the real reason I've let myself become this way. There has been a lot of introspection on my part. That always seems to come when I'm out running. It lets me clear my head most of the time. It's my "me time."
I've been running twice this week. It's not a lot but it's definitely an improvement. I've only gone…Continue
Remember the massive amount of Ratatouille Sauce I cooked the other day? Well, it's been frozen and today we had a baggie. I ended up not using the onion, garlic, basil tomato sauce (which makes it smell like pizza!) and just used the plain one. So I marked all the baggies with "SEASON!". I did today, it came out even better than before. There are like 9 veggies in it, more of the right tomato sauce, and ff chicken stock to stretch it. I used 1/2 lb ground turkey and one Italian…Continue
I totally remember why I never ever wanted to return to my parents' house again in my entire life. My eye is twitching and I'm broken out in hives. Why? Because I hate my father this much. And yes, I mean hatred. And at 29 years old, I'm not just having a little temper tantrum. This is such a toxic person that I never want to come visit again.
I remember why I had so many emotional issues as a child. This feeling of helplessness and anger and being made to feel guilty…Continue
This doesnt have much to do with losing weight but my sister had her baby on friday so I am finally an aunt! He was born 8 weeks early (her water ruptured at 30wks and she had to stay there until she delivered). Its kind of cool bc he was born on our grandpa's birthday! This is the grandpa that passed away 3 years ago from alzheimers and heart disease. He was honestly the best man I knew and we cant help but think this baby was somehow sent from him? I was there when he was born but not in…Continue
Well, this week was melodramatic, meltdown central week for me. I sat yesterday for another section of the CPA exam (FAILED IT) and so all week long I was stressing about that. I really believe I psyched myself out and caused myself to fail. I just blanked when I went in to take the test!
So anyways, this week my unhealthy eating habits from those cram nights in college reared their ugly heads. Bad decisions this week included not one, but two cheeseburgers, sushi on my…Continue
I have a pattern to my weeks. I weigh-in on Friday. I have my long runs on Saturday mornings. I have a splurge on Friday night and Saturday. Then back on track Sunday. It works for me. I am successful when I follow this pattern.
Saturday I don't count points. I don't bother. I basically use all my daily and flex points, then for the rest of the week I stay on point. And this was no different...or was it? I had my donuts after my three mile run, which I've done for…Continue
WW has told me AGAIN that I'm losing weight too quickly and I need to slow down or I may suffer heart irregularities, anemia and other serious problems. If I need help losing weight more slowly I could see my doctor.
Seriously, WW is full of crap sometimes. I lost 1 lb this week. Exactly, 1 lb. Last week I lost 0 lbs. Which one of those is too big for you?
You may remember the last time WW told me I was losing weight too quickly. I had an appt with my…Continue
Today was weigh-in day. I'm down 3lbs. I know I should be happier, but, I know that its just the 3lbs.( out of the 5lbs.) I gained at camp. Oh well, I guess it could be worse. I need some advice from anyone on Weight Watchers. What do you eat at 9:00 PM when you have 12 points left? That was my situation last night. I ended up eating a bowl of cereal with milk--8 points. Afterwards, I thought that was kinda dumb eating the carbs shortly before going to bed. I ended up having 4 points…Continue
Well today is day 2 of the clense and boy does it make you appreciate the foods you normally eat. :) Also, you tend to spend a lot of time in the restroom. By tomorrow I will be sick and tired of this but I am determined I am sticking it out. To help me stick it out I stocked up on goodies. We all know for me that is not the eating kind. I went and stocked up on fabric, ribbon, etc. I made my first bow ever last night to coordinate with one of the outfits I am making for my…Continue
Well i have been doing really good with the exercise switching everyother day with a 2 mile walk and mile jog. Still haven't got the eating where i want it but that will come. So hard to make healthy choices when someone takes youout for pizza or when i go to my in laws and she has mexican food made and is always pushing us to eat. But I need to get my mind set again and i guess not go out if i don't have to.
I signed up for a 5k on Aug 20th so hopefully that will go well and more…Continue
Stayed w/in my caloric allotment yesterday. One of the new foods I tried was edamame. Not bad....sort of plain...I wonder if I could use it in some recipes or add something to it (not cheese sauce and other high cal things) to spruce it up a bit?
Got my usual exercise in the morning.
Today is going to be busy and hot--in the 90s and we have to be outside a lot. Yuck. Oh well-I'll make the best of it.
Oh, joy. The wonderful thing about being a woman is that you can be just as disgusting as any man. I won't get into details, you know what I'm talking about if you've been pregnant. If you haven't, well, enjoy your ignorance. It is bliss.
I'm up b/c I have to check my blood pressure again in an hour or so. I want to make sure it stays below 140/90 and right now it's at 135/85. I know, "blood pressure varies from one minute to the next..." blah blah. It's scary, this…Continue
Oh wow! I can't believe it has been 3 days since I posted! When I started using BTL I promised myself that I would post something daily - even if it was just my nutrition and exercise. OK, well it's a little difficult to post with no Internet access. I went to visit my brother and his family Thursday evening one last time before returning 'home' from vacation. I've been posting late at night so on Thurs night I went to his place and their computer was on the brink. Yesterday was a last…Continue
