My Everest: Chocolate
Saturday, February 07, 2015      0 comments

February was supposed to be my no-chocolate month. After all, I did so well not drinking and doing daily exercise in January I thought this would be doable (not easy, but doable). I forgot about stupid St. Valentine's Day and the massive amounts... Read more
Putting myself first

It's funny how the last blog post was about losing weight for a family reunion (which I didn't go to because I was so embarrassed), and now, two years later, I have the same issue! This time around though, I'm not losing weight for a specif... Read more

Officially rainy season started last Friday, but the rainy season I know started with a vengence yesterday. It's been raining non-stop and doesn't look to let up anytime soon. Since most of my exercise is based outdoors I guess this means I ha... Read more

Well, nearly four months after I first started on this journey, I'm back at it (for real!) again. Woke up early, went for a walk, did some weights, ate right all day (!) and I feel good. Really good. And now I have a friend who is also trying... Read more

This has been a good week. Three kilos lost in two weeks -- very motivating! I have gone for walks every day (although of varying intensity) and have almost hit my strength training goals (3 out of 4 ain't bad). I've been two weeks without ch... Read more
Week One: Feeling Good!
Saturday, January 07, 2012      3 comments

The end of week one. Although I've only had a couple of days where I was within my calorie count, for the most part I feel good. I've been very conscious of everything that I eat, and I've exercised every day, and I'm drinking lots of water. ... Read more
