Just Starting

New to this.  Wanted to do a blog hoping it will make me more accountable and found this community blog.  This is good and I hope to support all of you as well.

Tipped the scales yesterday and I know something needs to be done.  I made some changes already.  I joined a pilates/yoga studio.  I began ordering healthy snacks from a company called Graze (this is keeping me from heavy snacks in the afternoon).  I've been walking at lunch when I can but nothing seems to be working.

Week 10 down another pound

I didn't post last week because I was away for a few days to Cape Cod, with my best friend.  We had a great time even though I haven't been feeling 100%. 

I'm honestly not sure how I lost a pound in the last 2 weeks.  We ate out on the cape for all of our meals and I wasn't totally careful.  I haven't been good about logging what I ate for the last couple weeks...But since I haven't felt well I have not had much of an appetite.

Hoping to feel more like myself soon!  I almost…

Weekly Update - 09/10

Weight - Down 0.2 pounds

Exercise - Ran 4 days (19 miles) 1 bike ride (16.6 miles)

Food - Okay

Mood - Anxious to get moving forward on this journey health.

I am ready to get moving. I have lost 12-14 pounds (depending on the week) & kept it off for over 12 weeks. That is good but I really want to lose more. I am working toward a more wholesome diet. Less processed or better yet, no processed foods at all. I have toyed with the idea of vegan diet,… Continue

9/7/16 planned meals

 Today went very well if I might say so ;-)

I woke up to my alarm at 4:30 as planned, quickly changed into my workout clothes, downed a quick cup of coffee and off I went to the gym. The workout was fun and I came home in a good mood, ready for the day. It seems like the days I spend time on something good for me in the morning end the best way. I ate on plan, stuck to my calorie requirement under 1500, and drank some water before heading to bed before 9. Tomorrow will be…

Labor Day

I just got back from a 16.6 mile bike ride. It was a great day. Not too hot or too cold. When I got up this morning it was thundering & raining. I thought for sure I would be running on the treadmill. I am so glad it turned around & I could get out on the bike. I have gotten so much use out of our bike trail this year. I am going to search some good healthy lunch ideas. I want to get losing weight again.

Happy Labor Day!

We are camping for the weeknd and I am loving the downtime! Been making somewhat healthy eating choices but camping is hard to stay perfect. I'm hoping to check in a few times a week and give/get some support on our journeys. This week should be good since we have Monday off and I am feeling motivated! Off to walk the dog!

Weekly Update - 09/03

Weight - Down 0.4 pounds. Unbelievable since eating was less than stellar.

Exercise - Ran 19 miles this week & bike ride 15.5 miles (the only constant lately)

Food - Ugh! Snacking is out of control.

Mood - Practicing being more positive.

I have been going nuts with crackers. This week was an office food day & although I avoided the donuts, cookies the crackers and cheese were a different story. I really hate myself for giving in. I mean I work… Continue

Week 8 down -0.8

It seems like to scale is in slow motion for me.  Although looking at my average since I started, at appears that I'm right were I should be. I'm down 7.5 lbs in 8 weeks so that's just under a pound a week, not bad.  I'll just keep on chugging along. 

So my stomach has been perfect since the day before I saw the GI doc last week and it hasn't returned KNOCK ON WOOD.  It's so confusing with so many different specialists!  They are not all on the same page as far as my care and it is…

Week 7 -stayed the same

My weight this morning is the same as last week (150.8)  but, every other time I've stepped on the scale I was up!  So seeing the same weight today was a happy thing!  I want to break into the 140's, hopefully in the next couple weeks!

My stomach has continued to be a problem.  Which means I don't want fruits and veggies and I just want carbs and soothing foods.  I haven't had much of an appetite but those foods being higher calorie I'm still where I should be calorie-wise (although…

Weekly Update - 8/20

Weight - Up 0.2 pounds. Shocked as I have been eating so much this past week.

Exercise - Ran 21 miles. Biked 15.5 miles.

Food - Good choices, but this week I was so HUNGRY. Not sure what the heck it was about.

Mood - Feeling pretty good. Scared about the path this country is taking so I have been focusing more in my own world rather than globally.

Week 6 down -1.2! I've lost 6.7 in the last 6 weeks!!!! Yippee!!

So last week with my belly upset, I was concerned that I wouldn't lose or might even gain.  I wasn't eating much but then when I did eat it wasn't my usual healthy diet I wanted pretty much straight up carbs. Also I didn't get any walks or hikes in!   So I'm really glad to see a nice loss on the scale this week!     

Lots going on in the weeks before school starts.  Just trying to take in the most of the summer days that I can with my family!

I have some trips coming up in the…

August 16, 2016; lunch prep

Good morning! 

I've started meal prepping lunch this week! I have grilled chicken, brown rice, and vegetables available. I didn't put them all in ready to go containers due to lack of containers, but it's on my list of things to get! I'm hoping this is an easy way for me to grab a healthy lunch while my toddler runs around the house. haha 

So here's a question for you....

what are some afternoon snacks you enjoy?

Afternoon snack time I have a tendency…

Off to a good start

I am off to a good start this week. Yesterday I ran 8 1/4 miles yesterday. It is the longest distance I have run on a Sunday. Most of my runs are 4-6 miles, but I think it is good to push yourself every now & then. Today I got in a 15.5 miles bike ride. It was cooler & the wind was calm so it was like a perfect ride. I still struggle with food, but it is getting better. I have been holding steady for a while, so I need to really evaluate the diet & tweet it a bit. I still have my… Continue

Week 5 Lost -0.5

I've not felt great since Monday little appetite and on and off nauseous. Monday and Tuesday I didn't even eat half of the salad that I packed for work.  Today I was feeling much better until after lunch.  I'm not sure what is going on with me but when I do want to eat I want pure carbs, rice, oatmeal...bland carb-y foods.  I'm hoping that I feel better soon so I can get back to my normal eating!

Got some stuff done today regardless.  My daughter had her before school physical.  Then…

Where is everyone?

It finally cooled off a bit making running much more enjoyable. Got in a 6 miler this morning. It is the first time in a while that I felt that good. Running in humid weather really isn't any fun. Looking for a new race to try. Not sure ifi want to do another 10k or make it a 5k. Everyone must be really busy since it has been super quiet here. Hope to be reading posts soon.
