Things I Don't Miss
Wednesday, July 29, 2015      3 comments

I don't miss overindulging in food (overeating or eating too much crap) to the point where I feel sick and nauseous half the night. I don't miss taking Tums or Pepto when I used to overindulge in food. I don't miss needing sugar and ... Read more

Relationship with Food (subtitle: I didn't want the ice cream!)
Friday, July 17, 2015      1 comments

I think my relationship with food is changing. I find myself making food choices based more on what would be good for my body at that moment rather than what would taste good at that moment. Of course, I still factor in taste to an extent when... Read more
That'll Teach Me Not to Wear a Sports Bra!
Thursday, July 16, 2015      4 comments

So I went on the treadmill last night from the comfort and privacy of my own home. I did 70 minutes - approx. 33 minutes at a walking pace of 3.6 mph, approx. 27 minutes at a jogging pace of 4.6 mph (non consecutive) and a 10 minute cool down. ... Read more
Sore!

In Las Vegas for a conference. Can't weigh in, but am getting my exercise. For the past two mornings, I've done a group fitness class at the hotel and have experienced my hardest workouts since I started this whole thing back in March. I'm so... Read more
Vegas, Baby!

Heading to Vegas tomorrow with my hubby. I'm actually attending a conference Thursday and Friday, but we'll have evenings and staying an extra day to have some fun. I'm alternately excited and apprehensive about putting my new healthy ways to ... Read more
One Day at a Time
Wednesday, July 01, 2015      7 comments

I've been at it for 4 months now. And I've been doing GREAT! And it hasn't seemed that hard. I haven't once really thought of giving up. But when I take a long view and think, "I'll have to do this for the rest of my life," I get a little ove... Read more
What a Difference an Hour Makes
Monday, June 29, 2015      3 comments

I am at that stage where I can't help but weigh myself everyday. I have the need to do it to make sure I'm on track and making steady progress. I don't get really upset if it's up a little on any given day, provided that it goes back down in a... Read more
Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome - Any Other Sufferers?
Friday, June 26, 2015      1 comments

For those that don't know, Delayed Sleep Phase Syndrome is a circadian rhythm disorder in which individuals have a chronic inability to fall asleep at a "normal" time every night (i.e. between the hours of 8pm and 11pm). Instead, an individual'... Read more
Struggled Yesterday
Thursday, June 25, 2015      6 comments

Yesterday, making the "right" choices was difficult. I was in a dark, unmotivated mood. And so my mind was in a tug of war over certain choices. A co-worker had a farewell gathering at work that included cookies and scotcheroos. The chocolat... Read more
You Can't Take Back a Missed Opportunity
Tuesday, June 23, 2015      3 comments

Once the day is done, it's done. You can't go back and do the things you planned to do, but didn't, and you can't undo the things you did, but wish you hadn't. Every day, you have dozens of opportunities to make choices that either advance you... Read more
Weight Loss is Not Hard
Thursday, June 18, 2015      3 comments

I have known logically and objectively for years that I was overweight and slowly gaining more over time, but I didn't really care. Or at least I didn't care enough to worry about it. I preferred eating whatever I wanted to looking and feeling... Read more

Had a GREAT day last Friday with my good friend Matt who was visiting me from Illinois. We went to Barnes and Noble, then lunch at Red Robin, then saw... Read more
If exercise doesn't really help you lose weight, why do it?
Tuesday, June 09, 2015      2 comments

There are plenty of studies out there that say that exercise alone is not a significant (note the word "significant") source of weight loss. See article: http://www.abc.net.au/health/f

I miss my cookie pants
Monday, June 08, 2015      2 comments

When I was about a large size 10 or small size 12, I bought these size 14 jeans because they seemed to fit when I tried them on at the store. But they didn't fit! They were way too big. So big that my husband could easily stick his hands down in... Read more
