No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
WOW - Where did it go? Starting my 4th year here in this community. And can I say, how very grateful I am for all of you? Really. Your support, encouragement, and friendship (yes friendship) really go a long way. You keep me coming back. You keep me writing, you keep me accountable.
If I were simply to evaluate 2015 by what the scale alone says, I'd be a pretty sad little girl; but as I sit back and take stock, I realize that I have made changes, necessary yet some very painful…Continue
Posting an update on New Year's Eve--how cliche. I can't believe it's been 1.5 months since my last post. I've been around, reading and commenting. Just haven't had all that much to say. I made it through the holidays while maintaining which is A-OK in my books. I hit it hard this past week. Back to the basics. Weighing, measuring, counting everything. Weight Watchers introduced a new program at the beginning of December and it is kinda fun to have a fresh start to make things interesting…Continue
I woke up today with every damn muscle in my body aching but in that oh yesssssssssss sort of way! I had a hell of a workout last night, went into my basement gym and killed it with a 40 minute hip hops abs- total cardio-- and then I went right into my turbofire- 30 minutes of that. Definitely a good workout putting the both of those together. What I sort of love about hip hop abs is that .. I can put my phone on pandora and run it through my speakers and workout with the awesome music I…Continue
What to blog about? lol I havent got on the scale this week because my lovely Aunt Flow came to visit. GRRRR! Forget getting on that scale! This weekend sort of sucked for me with eating I didnt really eat CRAP but I did eat more than I should! That being said Im still working out and keeping up! I feel bloated and crampy and ew right now. Definitely not on that HIGH that I was on last week! Im also definitely not expecting to see such a high number loss on the scale this week, Ill…Continue
My littlest of bears, Olibear, got sick with RSV. It's a nasty respiratory hellhole we've been experiencing for over a week now. It has left me with no sense of smell. I can barely be understood when I talk b/c there are a lot of syllables missing. UGH. Worst part, food taste like wet cardboard. Add the lack of sleep, green globs of nastiness, etc., etc.
I had no idea how much I enjoyed eating! I always thought I ate a lot out of anxiety, but holy crap. How I miss…Continue
OK ladies, we've been talking alot about indoor vs outdoor exercise. You will be proud to know that I actually got myself on the treadmill today and completed my Week 9/Day 1. Funny thing is, its been so long since I used it - I almost couldn't get it to turn on.
Anyway, I didn't think I could do it, but I managed to focus on a tree outside my window and I completed the 23 minute run with a 5 min warm up and cool down. I chuckled at myself, cause once you get think rolling, there's…Continue
Here's my moment of truth for the day: I don't want to be writing this post. I had my pajamas on, I was talking to my fiance in bed, contemplating just taking out my contacts and trying to go to sleep. But, I talked myself into writing with a pretty simple argument: It's kind of like working out or making good food choices. It seems like a good idea when you make the plan, but when it comes time to do it, it slips your mind or you come up with another excuse.
So, here it is. Trying to…Continue
Finished out Day 3 of my Week 8 5K program. I can officially say I've gotten further into the challenge than ever before. Week 9 starts this week.
Today's run was a bit easier. It was a combination of having run yesterday and running with friends today. "Ken-Doll" ran with me again today while Amanda and one of their boys did shorter walk/run spurts. My head is still somewhat stopped up but better today - I even pushed out some small bursts of speed toward the end. But over all…Continue
It's amazing how a change in mindset can really change the rest of your life. I think what actually made the difference this time is that I spoke the words out loud to my fiance. "I'm going to start blogging again. I've gained weight, it helped the first time, so I'll try it again."
It is strange to me how anxious I can get over certain things, especially ones that involve telling other people about choices that I have made. I am scared of being judged, and I hate admitting…Continue
I am loving this unusual weather. It was 72 degrees today and the sun was bright. I know a lot of ppl are disappointed that its "not cold" or "not Christmas weather" - but this little girl right here is absolutely loving it. I'm also taking advantage of not having to run in the freezing bitter cold because I honestly hate the treadmill and would prefer to run outdoors. I am proud to say that today I pushed myself out the door and completed Week 8 - Day 2 on my own. I ran every bit of it even…Continue
I hope everyone had a wonderful day. My family and I spent 10 hours in the car on the way home from Alabama visiting my in-laws. We had Christmas early as my youngest son had to work tomorrow and we had to be home. All in all - we had a very peaceful holiday; very low key and you know what - I didn't miss all the stress that this time of year can bring. Really enjoyed family and I am very grateful for that.
Because we were so low key - I didn't make any sweets or desserts; so…Continue

I went from 180.1 on Tuesday to 176.8 today!!!!!!! OMG! IDGAF if its brown weight, water weight, or just my fat melting away.... its still moving! THAT SCALE IS MOVING! Lol
I was listening to a podcast yesterday that was discussing the mental aspect of losing weight. They were saying that it isn't about just knowing that you need to eat less/better and exercise more, because everyone knows that already. Of course that's true, it's been indoctrinated into us from a very early age. But somehow, it's much better said than done.
Upon reading the blog of the person being interviewed on the podcast, I realized that maybe I need to take control of some…Continue
