October refresh and restart
Tuesday, October 01, 2013      9 comments

It doesn't matter what I call it, but the point is that I'm gonna try to "get it together" and the start of a new month seems like a perfect opportunity. My eating habits have been getting back to normal (which in my case is a bad thing because... Read more
Am I overreacting???
Monday, September 30, 2013      11 comments

Normally I try to keep my posts exercise/diet related, but this one isn't. You see, I have a work friend. We used to work in the same area 18 years ago, and became pretty close. We'd get together periodically outside of work with our children... Read more
What, I packed on 3 lb overnight???
Thursday, September 26, 2013      11 comments

At times like these, I despise the scale! I know I had a high calorie day yesterday (too much to even track), but surely I didn't gain 3 lbs!!! Okay, I'm gonna exercise today and eat right. And we'll see where the battle of the bulge goes in... Read more
Yikes, many food challenges today
Wednesday, September 25, 2013      5 comments

Sometimes temptation is too close. This is one of those days. I've decided I'm not going to be a martyr. This morning, I helped to serve many bakery pastries. Yummy!!! I definitely had my share too. why? Because they were right in front ... Read more
I'm not pushing myself with exercise
Tuesday, September 24, 2013      9 comments

Actually, I'm pushing myself to meet my weekly exercise goal: 2 strength training session and 135 min of cardio. My cardio is the elliptical because it's my favorite piece of equipment. It has a TV built in, and no stress to the knees (I have... Read more
21 days to make a habit???
Sunday, September 22, 2013      5 comments

That is debatable. Recently, I read that it was more like 66 days. I'm more inclined to believe the latter, although 21 days is certainly a solid start. Then again, somethings will never become a habit. I've decided that when I look at my o... Read more
Argh, seriously???

Yesterday I left my water bottle and Sony earphones at the gym. I got busy at work and thought it would be okay to wait until today to retrieve them. They were in the exercise area of the woman's changeroom. You got it - wrong decision. They... Read more
Magic #173
Wednesday, September 18, 2013      12 comments

What's so magic about that number? Well, nothing. It's just my next mini goal, on my way down to a healthy BMI. You see, I'm a creature of habit (and am trying to improve some of those habits). I've been going, for a couple of years, to a g... Read more
My pants actually fit...
Tuesday, September 17, 2013      15 comments

and I even have a little wiggle room! It feels great. I started with SP over 3 months ago, and only in the last month has the scale been budging, due to changes I've made with my calorie intake (I've kept up the exercise). I'm down about 1... Read more
But I don't want to....
Sunday, September 15, 2013      15 comments

This could be a lazy Sunday morning for me. I didn't sleep that well, so I could have stayed in bed way past 7:30am, with the hopes of drifting off into sleep again. I really don't feel like going the gym to do my workout but I'm just gonna d... Read more
Oops, wrong kind of "reward"
Wednesday, September 11, 2013      8 comments

Recently I realized that I'm engaging in destructive behaviour. Yesterday, was a great example. In the morning I had a Hershey's chunk candy. In the afternoon I had two toffees and a "diet" candy bar. When I got home, I had 3 O'henry bites, ... Read more
I broke my AF streak
Tuesday, September 10, 2013      10 comments

Well, it wasn't much of a streak (7 days) but still longer than I'd done for sometime. I know that others have been doing a 100 day challenge, and some have even taken the declaration "I don't drink anymore". While I applaud their convictions ... Read more
Seven days without alcohol makes one weak!!!
Monday, September 09, 2013      11 comments

Haha, borrowed from a Tim Hortons sign! Yep, I did seven days without and it was much easier than I thought it was going to be. And it had a good effect on my weight. I think I'm a couple of pounds down, but with the way mine fluctates, it c... Read more
Almost let my exercise goal slide this week
Sunday, September 08, 2013      7 comments

As of Friday, I was 30 min short on the elliptical. Since DS doesn't have swimming lessons this weekend, I had no reason to go to the gym. I resigned (or rather, allowed) myself to fall short of my cardio goal. Nothing for three days with no ... Read more
Avoiding evening snacking temptation last night
Thursday, September 05, 2013      8 comments

While watching TV last night, I had an urge to snack. I believe I felt hungry, despite drinking copious amounts of water, and having had a full supper. I decided to drink even more water instead of snacking. At the time I realized that if I h... Read more
