I'm now at a week and a half and just weighed in. I've been doing incredible with my diet & exercise... and STILL only 1 pound! Ugh! But, I know it isn't about the scale. It would just be nice to say "I've lost 'x' pounds!" Anyway, I have a... Read more

I took my daughter to Watermelon Camp today. It's our church's version of VBS and it only lasts a day. The moms stay and it lasts about 5 hours out in the heat. The kids have a lesson, do crafts, go on a nature walk, and swim. And, we have lunch... Read more

Wednesday, June 09, 2010      5 comments

Yesterday, I joined the Couch to 5K group and did my first walk/jog. Today, I did my second. You are supposed to take a break, but I wouldn't have been able to get 3 days in this week without doing it this week. First of all, I can't believ... Read more

I just finished up my day and even with eating some cereal & fruit (at 7 & 8 pm), I am still not getting enough carbs. It's been a struggle every day - which is funny since I struggled with getting FEWER carbs last time I did this. Anyone ... Read more

Today was a little harder. I was SO hungry all day long. But, I ended up sticking to the mid-range of my calories, doing great on carbs & protein, and just 1 gram too high on fat. We went out to eat and I ordered lasagne... I love lasagne! ... Read more
