NYE 2010

I am spending the evening at home, relaxing and getting ready for the New Year on the right foot. I made my good luck meal - a roast and sauerkraut. Super healthy, but loaded with sodium :-)

I couldn't be happier. I even lost weight over the Christmas week. I have my official weigh-in tomorrow morning. Then starting training for the OKC 1/2 Marathon on January 2nd!

Life is great!

A Numbers Post

I'm worn out right now. I have spent my day trying to prepare for the coming of 2010 (both the festivities to come tonight and tomorrow, and the whole year coming after that), physically and I suppose emotionally. Anyway, mostly I 've been trying to plan my day, calorie-wise, and make it a good day. I know I'll be drinking at least 4 Yuenglings tonight and a glass of champagne, so I had to prepare... I'm tired, so this will be a post of lists and numbers.

My food for today:

Reminding myself of the new Katrina

I woke up today not feeling positive. Well, that's not true...I got on the scale this morning and it made me feel down. I am 4 lbs over my goal weight. The scale was up a whole lb from yesterday! Instead of being completely upset with it and throwing in the towel when it comes to eating I decided that that is how the old Katrina would act and I am the new Katrina. The new Katrina knows the scale fluctuates, she knows she ate too many christmas cookies, she knows that she has worked out this… Continue

2009 in review

Just a quick post about this year. Overall I've had great success & I'm happy for the progress that I've made. I did have a repeat falling off the wagon as I did last fall. But I was very committed to exercise for several months & my shape was coming along nicely. I got into the low 130's! For that I'm super proud, however I don't want to keep the cycle going of losing & gaining I must learn to maintain & continue on to reach my goals!!! I need to reflect on where it went bad. I… Continue

My 10 Years as a Trotter

I have been seeking some intrinsic motivation as I transition out of holiday mode and back into the real world. I moved some things in one of our closets recently and I found the container where I store all of my race bibs and finisher medals. I opened the box and started looking through. I counted 54 race bibs and 12 finisher medals. There were 5Ks, 8Ks, 10Ks, half-marathons and one marathon.

Looking through I found the… Continue

Are you serious?

That is the exact words I said this morning when I weighed in on the scale. And then followed by a little happy dance. I weighed in this morning at 198.6! Woohoo! I am officially in the one hundreds again! It has been over a year since I seen a 1 infront of my weight. I am so excited. I guess that little run I made myself do helped! I feel great! My stomach is starting to shrink a little and my hips and thighs are definitely becoming more toned. I am up to running 1 1/2 miles without stopping.… Continue

Day 2 & 3 Update

I have continued to keep my food journal, it has helped me cut back a lot on all of the holiday snacking I had grown accustom to over the past month or so. Yesterday I drank five 20oz bottles of water and today I didn't do as well.

Yesterday I made it to the gym with my husband. I did some weights working on my upperbody and walked on the treadmill at and incline of 5.5. My hips and knees have been bothering me a lot this week so I kept it light. I did just over two… Continue

Just Tired

Wow the last few days I have had no energy. Today I didn't want to run but I finally got up and made myself. I don't know why it has been so hard for me this week. I am just being lazy. I don't want to get in a funk. So maybe I just need a change in where I run. I have been running on the treadmill the last 2 or 3 weeks and it is starting to make me go crazy. The weather in GA has just been crappy lately and I definitely don't want to take my daughter out in the cold and rainy nastiness. When… Continue

Never Say Diet is a must read!

I got the book "Never Say Diet" by Chantell Hobbs from the library and decided to buy it. It has some very helpful tips, especially when it comes to changing your thinking about long term weight loss. It has helped me tremendously. Basically it talks about a lady who was a sahm and ended up losing over 200 lbs by herself. It deals with getting your mind set on the right path in order to achieve success. To me losing weight is soooo mentally hard. It's something you have to just set your mind to… Continue

I Started Off Well

I was doing so well today. I had whole wheat pancakes and fruit for breakfast and egg whites (with a few fries) for lunch. I got a regular coffee at Starbucks instead of the latte that was calling my name. I tossed the holiday cake (after a few bites) and cookies and I stayed away from the bag of candy. Then dinner happened. My honey decided it would be a great idea to have Pizza Hut. He gets sucked into any "special". We compromised by ordering half meat lovers and half cheese. I planned on… Continue

Morning Sickness, SUCKS

My 2009 Year in Review

As 2009 winds down to a close, I thought it would be nifty to write my year in review. This is the year that my new way of life began, it's was the last year of my 20s (eek! I will be 30 in 3 months) and I survived my first year of marriage. It's been a BIG year for me in many different ways.


January 2009 - 209.6lbs to… Continue

A closet full of clothes...and nothing to wear!

I sometimes look into my closet with a sick feeling of guilt- a closet full of clothing and most of it doesn't even fit me. I realized a few days ago that this is NOT ok. I can't keep shoving things to the back of my closet anymore. I don't want to buy something that I know won't fit, and lie to myself that it's "motivation."

I can't even begin to count the number of designer jeans that I own that still have tags on them because they won't even come up over my hips. My husband works… Continue
