Low Carb and updated Fast Food Plan
Tuesday, April 11, 2017      6 comments

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
Packing

My brother is coming out to help me pack for the move this weekend! For the past 2 days, I've been eating breakfast and sticking to my eating goals. I do feel so much better when I spread the calories out through the day instead of eating ... Read more

I gained 1.2 lb this week :( I know why. My cravings and portions have been out of control -- from pizza last Wednesday to fast food mega-meals, I haven't been pre-tracking and I have been eating pretty much whatever I wanted, includ... Read more

Today I was feeling good so I went a little bit faster at the gym. I managed to beat my personal best on my mile of jogging intervals by more than 2 minutes :) I've been to the gym 5 times now in 2 weeks... Wed will be my 6th! ... 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
Moving!

I'm so happy!!!! I'm going to be moving from this apartment to another one with the same floor plan, in a different building. Why? Because this one is horrible and is really close to the highway, and no matter what I do, I cannot relax here!... Read more
First day at new gym
Thursday, March 23, 2017      6 comments

Went well!! I took the advice of other Sparkers and I didn't push myself too hard. I did a brief warm up on the elliptical (phew that thing is hard), and then I used 3 weight machines -- leg press, chest press, and lat pull down for two se... Read more

Omgosh! I weighed in much lower than I thought I would and well below the threshold for my scale to measure me. 390.4 I was expecting 405 or higher :) So, I'm down about 6 lb from when I was in the hospital earlier this year, and down... Read more

Thanks for the support on my last blog. It means a lot to me that so many wonderful Sparkfriends are supporting me. I had my appointment with the sleep doc today and it went well; I'm going to have a sleep study on Apr 1st. She said I shou... Read more
First day back
Monday, March 20, 2017      7 comments

It feels really weird to be back in my apartment, but here I am! I have these memories of feeling bad in this apartment, so it's very strange to be feeling good in it right now, but I guess I will get used to it. I almost feel afraid that ... Read more
Back to Columbus

Last night we saw Beauty and the Beast. It was good! I also managed to only have a handful of my brother's popcorn, and I had a very sensible portion for dinner and didn't binge or snack afterwards. This is my last day visiting my family. T... Read more
Fast Food Plan!
Friday, March 17, 2017      3 comments

Thanks to the helpful suggestions on my previous blog, I've decided not to demonize fast food, but to simply make a list of *allowed* meals that I can get from fast food places near me and not have it be a cheat meal. Now obviously most of ... Read more

OK, I found out I have a seat reserved in the boot camp that starts May 15th (if you'll remember from my previous blogs, I had to take a leave of absence from this boot camp because of my mental health, but they are letting me complete a later o... Read more
I worked out today
Thursday, March 16, 2017      20 comments

This might not seem like much of an achievement but for me, at this time in my life, it is. I went to the mall and walked for 30 minutes because it was too cold to walk outside. It feels really good. I took the time to do intentional exercise an... Read more
