A Fear of Food (and other things)
Tuesday, August 09, 2011      2 comments

I have been dieting my entire life. My mom dieted (unsuccessfully until she quit drinking) and I was a chubby kid so I dieted too (also unsuccessfully). My mom taught me a lot about what to do and what not to do. But this was an age when food ... Read more
Free Day Fail :(
Monday, August 08, 2011      3 comments

So yesterday was my free day! I do not go to the gym (because it's closed) and I don't track my food. I ate pretty good all day, I added olive oil to things, I made vegan pancakes but only had half of one because I wasn't hungry. Then Ken ... Read more

I did it! I completed my goal of going to the gym 6 out of 6 days (it's closed Sunday) and staying in my calories/tracking my food for 6 out of 6 days! Six days seems like a short period of time for anything else but I'll tell you it's been a ... Read more

To make a long story short, I've done this a lot. I start dieting and exercising and have perfect saint-like behavior six days a week. Then someone will have a bbq or a party on a day that is NOT my free day and I LOSE. :( Also in the past, rela... Read more
My mantra has become "You're gaining muscle. You're gaining muscle."
Friday, March 18, 2011      1 comments

Recently I posted on a message board that although I get frustrated when I don't lose weight I try to tell myself that I am probably gaining muscle and losing fat. But right now I'm so damn discouraged about this number not going down!! I v... Read more
Restaurant Woes
Monday, March 14, 2011      2 comments

In the last 6 months, I've put back on about 20 pounds of the weight I lost last year. The reason being, in part, to getting a new job as a line cook. I love being a cook but this place is heavy on the bacon and cheese and well...I got kind of c... Read more
Goddammit! I will do this! Help!

I am so damn frustrated with myself! I keep making other things and people priorities when I need to make myself and my health a priority! I am ready to change but I have realized a few things that I need to put into effect. - I must be on... Read more

I ate like crap today!!!! I can give a bunch of excuses but I don't need to. Because I don't feel guilty. I ate like crap. That's that. Am I going to eat like crap tomorrow? Nope! Because I went food shopping yesterday and prepped all my food ... Read more

So I haven't posted a blog in two days, I was at Brian's and it is easy to get distracted there. I'm going to back track and be accountable for the last two days. Thursday: I did well on Thursday to start, rode my bike to work, drank a lot ... Read more

Even though I didn't quite get to bed at 9:45 last night, I went to bed shortly thereafter and slept in until 6:30! 8 hours!! Getting 8 glasses of water was harder, but I managed to get at least 9 at the end. Food today seemed better and riding ... Read more

In an effort to get at least 8 hours of sleep I am going to turn out the light at 9:30, with the hopes that I will fall asleep by 10 and can wake up at 6 (and hit snooze twice so 6:15 really) feeling refreshed. I do not like putting my food i... Read more
Doing it for real.

So for a while I was losing weight at a steady pace walking with my friend everyday and following a Weight Watchers plan. I also went vegetarian for a bit. I got down to 190 and then I went to Europe for a few months. When I got back I was 198! ... Read more
