Eating-out NSV!

Saturday, February 21, 2015      0 comments

We went on an outing today that included lunch, at our local museum. In that past I've either gotten a sandwich and fries, or the side plate with fries, some mayonaisy salad, mac n cheese, etc. Today I ordered the black bean burger and toma... Read more

Figuring out that I'm a serious emotional eater!

It's been a while! Although I made it through most of the holidays without gaining more weight, I didn't lose much either. Then I picked some up in January. After I started a nutrition/weight loss class. That was a wake-up call. I had been... Read more

A couple of small goals...

Since my last entry I had my doctor's appointment, and she confirmed that if I stick to my calorie range (1400-1600) I *should* lose weight. I have no thyroid issues. So I'm glad I got a wake-up call that yes, the problem is me and my lack of co... Read more

Time to seriously get serious...?

Ugh, I feel pretty awful. I totally binged today. I had a grilled chicken dinner planned, but we spent too long at the pumpkin patch so we ate out, and I ate way too much. Plus we had reeses pumpkins. Moving on...I have about 2 months befo... Read more

After my last entry, I woke up the next day with horrible shoulder and neck pain. I think I overdid it assuming I could jump back in and swim a mile when I hadn't been for a week or so. But it could also have been the weights. Anyway, I had to t... Read more

Great inspiration

I'm so over being sick. Literally and figuratively; my daughter has brought two colds home from preschool so far this fall and then we had allergies from playing out in the yard over the weekend. I was sick last week so I only got to the gy... Read more

Back from my adventure

I had my trip and have been back a little less than a week. It was a nice trip, but so hard to stay on track eating out all the time! I've been doing fine sticking with portion control since then though. I also returned to the gym ASAP and... Read more

I started off my Friday with a mile-long swim (and then some). I swam for 50 minutes straight, except to get out and grab a drink of water. I was going to do water aerobics, but once I got to the gym I decided to just swim laps. I don't know wh... Read more

I did yoga on Friday, and it was a lot tougher than I remembered. I thought I would like it better than pilates, but I didn't, really. I may go back if I can get to it - it's at a difficult time of day - but I'm not going to sweat it if I miss. ... Read more

After my swim on Monday, I took a break on Tuesday. Last night was my second pilates class. I still enjoyed it a lot and I felt like I was getting slightly better at the exercises. This morning I got a bonus day since my husband took our da... Read more

Loving this exercise thing...but need to get the eating right

We went to the Y yesterday and I worked out on the weight machines. About all of them! I warmed up, then went from machine to machine. I hit probably 10-12 of them and did two sets of everything. I really like the machines because they make me f... Read more

Weight machine orientation; starting to get an idea of a routine

Friday, September 05, 2014      1 comments

Today I had my fitness orientation. I filled out a questionnaire, and in it I specified that I wanted to focus on seeing the machines, since I'm the most clueless about those. First I warmed up on an elliptical (which was much smoother than... Read more

Last night I did the pilates class. It was quite a challenge. I could feel ab muscles I probably haven't used since I was a performing bellydancer - and that was before pregnancy. It was good to get back in touch with my abs. But the class was a... Read more

I fell off the sugar wagon when I went on a trip out of state to visit family. It wasn't pretty but it could've been worse, too. The trip was really stressful and I got sick afterward. Lesson learned. I'm not repeating the trip again anytime soo... Read more

I went cold turkey from refined sugar on August 5th. After reading about food addiction, I felt like baked goods and sugary stuff are the items that really make me go over the edge and binge eat. Since then I haven't magically dropped pounds - I... Read more
