Phew!! this has been one crazy month!
Birthday, Valentine's Day, TWO long work trips, in-laws visiting PLUS one of my best friend's bridal shower & bachelorette party weekend!! I am beyond exhausted.
I did great with food last month, but... Read more
I've had a crappy week... work, family ... it's just all sucked. I've been trying to not let it get me down. I've stayed focused on my food and woke up early every day to walk my dog for 50 -55 mins.
It's not the biggest calorie buster... bare... Read more
Today was a great prep day! I cut up a LOT of fruit and mixed it in a nice big bowl with honey lime dressing.
It's fabulous and looks so enticing - I put some of it in little one cup containers to bring to work.... it'll be nice to grab & go i... Read more
Home with a tummy ache :(
Mike took Bo (our boxer puppy) to dog training by himself cause I am homebound (close to the bathroom!) - I have no idea what I ate, but it did not sit well.
On the plus side, I haven't had an afternoon with just me and Charlie in MONTHS! Char... Read more
Dog Day at the Beach
We spent the morning and early afternoon running after our Boxer at the dog beach (his FIRST time at the beach) and it was so much fun! We were outside, enjoying the sun, and he was as happy as can be!!
We also opted to eat bac... Read more
IT'S THE WEEKEND!!
So excited that it's finally the weekend!! This week was strange... each day seemed to last a long while, and the first half of the week was SUCH an uphill battle... but now I can't believe we ate healthy ALL week. Tomorrow is our cheat day (the... Read more
Today was a great day with regards to food - lots of yumminess, lots of work stress but I was in control and didn't snack. PHEW!!!
It's been an uphill battle ALL week, so having a day where I felt in control was much needed.
We ended the... Read more
Not feeling it
Phew... this day has been rough. The need to snack is high. Nothing I eat is satisfying the urge.
I had pistachios and two granola bars... ugh... not the brightest move...
Now I've wasted calories and I'm not satisfied. I'm just an hour ... Read more
It was a little bit nutty today - dogs gave me a lot to do this morning (late start and too many to dos), and then had to take our Boxer to the vet mid-workday (turned out to be allergies, so not too bad) but that always makes the workday FLY by... Read more
Too Many Cherries!
Despite eating healthy food today, I did overindulge in my mid-afternoon snack.
I meant to eat half a bag of cherries, but ended up eating the whole thing.
I didn't think much about it until Mike wanted some and I told him they were all g... Read more
I'm continuing my second week of walking Bo every morning. I really don't see a reason why I can't keep this up. I don't feel THAT tired when the alarm goes off, and Bo is just so happy it wakes me up ... plus it's relaxing. All good things.

Sunday "I don't wanna"
Phew! It's been 11 days of monitoring my food, making better choices and avoiding chocolate (except once a week)... today was a little rough because I know the road ahead and it's a long one! lol
I know I'm not supposed to think about the WHOL... Read more
Today has been lovely - relaxing, spending time with the dogs and FINALLY got my Christmas thank you cards out (oopppss... at least they're out now. Better late than never, right?).
We took our dog Bo to a new dog park and it was so much f... Read more
Even though it's Friday, the weekend is mere hours away, and work is going well... I'm feeling crappy! bloated, queasy and a headache to boot!
Not sure why I've been feeling so bad for the past few days... it's exhausting!
I didn't take ... Read more
I've found my secret weapon for waking up early and his name is Bo!!! I've walked him every morning for 5 straight days and it's been FABULOUS!
A full hour of exercise each day, before the day, work, or errands have a chance to ruin my motivat... Read more
