Crappy food day, but great for exercise
Sunday, July 15, 2018      5 comments

So I was out with my eldest today so I ended up eating way too many calories, but on the other hand I managed to walk over 11,000 steps AND went pedal boating so, hopefully, the day will be a wash.... Read more
Changing Focus
Sunday, July 15, 2018      3 comments

As much as I still want to make my 60 lb goal by Dragon Con, instead I'm going to focus on smaller goals. I've gotten past the 240s, the 230s and the 220s. I'm soon to get past the 210s and then I'm going to be pushing to get into One-derland. ... Read more
48 days and 15 hours before Dragon Con
Friday, July 13, 2018      4 comments

I'm not as far along as I'd like to be for Dragon Con, but I still have some time. I'm going to be working out like mad from now until the convention. I want to be firmly in One-derland by the time of the con. I know I still will be somewhat b... Read more
Starting the summer

Both kids are out of school now. One goes back to working at a camp tomorrow. I get to sleep about an hour later and still go to the gym before driving my eldest to work and heading to my office. I still don't like getting up early, but that ... Read more
School can't end soon enough
Friday, June 15, 2018      9 comments

So I slept in and skipped the gym this morning figuring I'd work out in the afternoon because I was tired. I got up at 6 instead and pestered my son to get him ready for school. We were at the bus stop by 6:55 and he turns to me and says, "Yea... Read more
One kid down, one to go

The teenager is finished with school for the year. The middle schooler still has classes until the 19th, but the end is in sight! I will be really happy to have almost a week where I can go to the gym at 6 rather than 5 in the morning. Starti... Read more
Good Weekly Weigh In
Wednesday, June 13, 2018      5 comments

Trying to keep carbs down is definitely helping. I just got past that 220s plateau I've been stuck at. It could be me going to the gym, but I think it is a combination. I'm definitely going to continue to stay away from potatoes, pasta and so... Read more
I can see it, don't know if anyone else can.

Argh. We are almost at the end of the school year here and I made the "mistake" of checking the parent website before bed to make sure my son had everything turned it. He didn't and it was bad enough that it was affecting his grades. I'd been... Read more
Moving on from off day
Friday, June 08, 2018      5 comments

So yesterday was fine through the morning, but then I had to go get the estimate from being rear-ended back in April. Nothing like taking an afternoon off to drive half an hour to wait to have someone look at the damage. At least they gave me ... Read more
Higher Protein, Lower Carbs
Thursday, June 07, 2018      3 comments

Well, lowering carbs is definitely affecting my appetite. I'm just not as hungry and without all the "extra" sugar and carbs, my calories are really low. I'm not fasting. I eat three meals a day and I am not hungry, but the calories are REALL... Read more
Hubby clearly doesn't understand food...
Wednesday, June 06, 2018      7 comments

So before I head to the gym, hubby tells me he's going to run over to the German store. He was picking up beer (not a temptation for me so whatever) and offered to pick up food to make / heat up for dinner. His first suggestion was, of course,... Read more
Weights and Cardio
Tuesday, June 05, 2018      1 comments

So I'm really trying to push myself with the summer challenge. I'm going to try and do cardio with different weights at least 5 days a week. Studies seem to show that weight loss works best when there is a combination of cardio and strength tr... Read more
Gym definitely paying off
Monday, June 04, 2018      1 comments

I didn't make it in this morning, but I was wanting to do something while here at work to get something in. I just did a full minute plank without shaking apart. Looks like those core weight machines are definitely helping.... Read more
Getting psyched for the BLC Summer Challenge

Having someone to be accountable to is a big help. As much as I am doing this for myself, I find that I keep pushing because I don't want to let the team down.... Read more
