I'm starting to get the lay of the land at work, and I'm shadowing other developers on my team. I'm still in disbelief that I got this job (so grateful!). My car is great and I love it! I made a rule that I will not eat food in it and I've been ... Read more

Thursday, July 27, 2017      11 comments

A few days ago my scale wouldn't even weigh me (it's only supposed to go to 400 lb, so I assumed I was 405-410). Welllllll, I had a few great days (went to the gym twice, eating has been in my calorie range), and today it deigned to give me a we... Read more

I woke up today and I was back down to 391.4 :) OKAY, maybe it was just water weight. That means I only have 3 lbs to lose to be back to where I was in the beginning of April! I can do this! 12/01/16: 405 01/06/17: 395 03/22/17: 390.... Read more
New starting weight

394.2 A gain of almost 6 lbs :/ all of the fast food and maybe the side effects of my medicine contributed to this gain. I think I need to just take this one pound at a time and try my best to swing it downward. I might not like the number ... Read more

The move is over! Now I'm unpacking everything. I have 3 weeks until the bootcamp starts, so I'm planning to focus on eating healthy, going to the gym, fewer fast food and more homemade meals. I love my new apartment! I feel like I have a fresh... Read more
Low Carb and updated Fast Food Plan

I took a diabetes education class with my friend, Cat! The dietitian there recommended that I try to get 10 servings of 15g carb, or about 150g per day as part of my plan to lower my blood sugar. I can do this! I will do this! I've up... Read more

I'm down 2.2 lb this week :D!!! I wasn't perfect (far from it), but I made a lot of good, small decisions. Hopefully this trend continues next week! Today I did my strength training at the gym, then bought some boxes; I'm work... Read more
Gym day 2 and packing
Monday, March 27, 2017      6 comments

A good start to the week! I made it to the gym this morning despite not wanting to go (I guess that's why it helps to have a gym buddy, right? She helped motivate me!) Once I got there, I was fine. I did 6 jogging intervals on the treadmill with... Read more
