Happy First Day of School!

First day of school here, and my third session of training at the gym with the personal trainer (PT). We shall see how these early mornings at the gym go. I hope it soon becomes a welcome part of the old routine. Yesterday I worked my lower... Read more
Blip, or Plateau, or Whatever -- I Just Put the Latest Behind Me!

I was rewarded this morning with a nice change. The scale, which had been stuck for two weeks, finally budged by a pound, and I weighed in at 183.8 this morning. That makes it an 18 pound weight loss since I started. I was warned that start... Read more
Resorting to Change

Haven't been able to blog for a while. We were travelling over the long weekend, and even though we had access to both 3G and wireless at the resort, the place was so full of people using both those services, it wasn't easy to get a decent conne... Read more

Finally my weight is drifting back downwards, after creeping up when I started exercising with the weight machines. I will record here, but not on my chart, that my weight this morning was 185.8. That is still up a pound from my "official" low w... Read more

We attended a family function yesterday, and I made a snap decision that turned out to be a good one, which was to take a premade veggie tray and some precut pineapple spears as my contribution. There were few other veggie appetizers. Well, a ch... Read more
Food, Weight, and Working Out

My weight has gone wonky. Despite eating to plan and not having hormone issues, my weight has gone up a couple of pounds. Now, "eating to plan" might be deceptive. I've been eating a little bit more towards the higher end of the range ... Read more

All right so yesterday I had a problem blogging. Today I will save and edit often, since I am typing on my iPad again (in the car, even) using my data plan to save the post to my SparkPage. Yesterday -- before the glitch -- I wrote about ho... Read more

Gah! I had a whole blog post typed out here on my iPad. Then there was a glitch and it just disappeared before I had a chance to save it. Maybe I'll retype it tomorrow. I'm just too discouraged to try and reproduce 5 or 6 long paragraphs at the ... Read more
Training Session!
Wednesday, August 22, 2012      0 comments

Yesterday I had my first weekly session with a personal trainer, PT. He's a young guy, barely older than my son (to my jaded, mama-bear eyes), but I do respect him, which is essential, and he is probably older than he seems. We worked on th... Read more

I didn't blog yesterday. That's odd for me. We signed up for a personal trainer at the gym. It seemed expensive, but DH is the money man and he worked it into the budget. Having a trainer will help with education and accountability as far a... Read more

We drove up north this morning to drop The Boy off at his final two weeks of music camp. There were limited choices in the nearest town, so we had lunch at Swiss Chalet. Unfortunately, no corn was available as a side with my quarter chicken, so ... Read more

Good morning, Saturday! Today I stepped on the scale and I was 184.8. Woohoo! That makes it official: 17 pounds lost. No eating out this week. (It's been boring, but the weight loss has been great.) Lots of activity this week. Wen... Read more

Mmm, so this morning I tried something different for breakfast. I had bought some little tubs of cottage cheese, because I know that's a good high-protein food. I also have in the fridge some cubed watermelon that needs to be eaten before it det... Read more

The scale this morning said 185.6! The funny thing is, yesterday when I entered a manual program on the recumbent bicycle, it asked me to enter my weight. Well, for some reason I felt too embarrassed (?!?) to enter "187" (which, as far as ... Read more
Date Night

Last night (Tuesday) I did not go to the gym with DH. I hemmed and hawed and almost went, but in the end it was so late and I was so dragged out (hormones, ugh!) that I decided not to go. Tonight, however, I went. I forced myself, really. I... Read more
