  • Sugar Detox Challenge: Day 7

    5/23/2016 11:49:38 PM, by PRETTYATHEIST

    One week down, 3 more to go! You know, scratch the last half of that sentence. One week down, go me! I think it's better to emphasize the success and spend less time thinking about what's to come. Like if I run 5 miles, instead of feeling proud of myself (that's 5 miles man!) I focus on the fact...

  • Sugar Detox Challenge: Day 6

    5/23/2016 1:21:00 AM, by PRETTYATHEIST

    Sugar cravings hit me hard today. I was out walking the dogs and saw a candy wrapper on the ground. That was all it took, that visual stimulus. After that I felt it the rest of the walk and once I got home but I resisted. It was hardest after dinner, which is when I usually splurge. I kept thin... Read more

  • Sugar Detox Challenge: Day 5

    5/22/2016 2:21:30 AM, by PRETTYATHEIST

    Nothing much to report, no significant cravings today. Aside from driving by a bakery and an ice cream parlor on my way to spin class and wishing I wasn't detoxing this month! I did have sugar today though as I like chocolate milk post workout but again, for this detox I am not counting that. Jus... Read more

  • Sugar Detox Challenge: Day 4

    5/21/2016 3:04:06 AM, by PRETTYATHEIST

    So day 4. About a month later. I fell off the sugar detox wagon! I looked at a few of the daily challenges here and there but generally I was not detoxing from sugar. I was eating all I wanted whenever I wanted and not thinking about it. But I have new motivation as I started a Diet Bet on Mond... Read more

  • Rain, shoulders, and candy

    5/17/2016 3:12:15 PM, by ADF1981

    It's been raining all day. So, no walk for me. My husband took the dog out when the rain slowed to a sprinkle, but it looks like rain for the rest of the day and possibly the rest of the week. I'm hoping that changes! I still really enjoy walking. Today's workout was shoulders and triceps. ... Read more

  • Hello!

    5/16/2016 2:11:18 PM, by ADF1981

    It's been a while since I blogged. I have been mostly on track just haven't taken the time to blog lately. Eating has been going well at maintenance. Although, I don't think I've found my true maintenance macros because I lost a pound. Hey, I'm not complaining LOL. I've tracked a few days and s... Read more

  • The weekend

    5/9/2016 4:05:28 PM, by ADF1981

    The weekend was fun, but my eating was way off. We grilled for the first time in a few years so that was a nice change and I also ate way too much both Saturday and Sunday. Luckily, it wasn't all day eating and just two big suppers. I'm sort of paying for it now because I ate things I shouldn't a... Read more

  • Before picture, getting back on track

    5/9/2016 2:37:08 PM, by G.I.JANE

    I've let the stress of my pending divorce and his high will to keep my daughter away from me put a halt on my goals. I took another big step and blocked his abusive texts. They were really bringing me down. I'm going to get that fantastic feeling that I get with exercising and being healthy. J... Read more

  • Where'd the week go?

    5/5/2016 3:22:10 PM, by ADF1981

    This week is going by so fast. Which isn't totally a bad thing because I am READY for this weekend. I just haven't taken much time to blog this week. I've been on track, but didn't really make the changes I mentioned in my last blog. I was planning on making a few changes in my food, but I didn'... Read more

    I finally got my house on the market. Construction on new home should start this month. I'll probably be living in a tent for a few months if I'm lucky. It'll beats the doghouse that I sleep in occasionally--it's really not that bad except for when the dog snores. 43 18 See more at: ... Read more

  • More changes and is it leg day yet?

    5/1/2016 10:17:40 AM, by ADF1981

    It's been a week since I've done a leg workout because of my knee acting funky, but I am ready to start back tomorrow. I'm not sure how heavy I'll go to start, but I'm looking forward to a tough workout. Funny, old self would not have said such a thing! I have been walking more and stuck to my ar... Read more

  • Change is good

    4/29/2016 10:50:15 AM, by ADF1981

    Making the decision to maintain for a while feels like a big weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I'm using this time to sort of regroup mentally, but also hoping maybe this change will do my body some good too. I sort of ate how I wanted to yesterday within reason and tracked as I went. I on...

  • Back on track Day... whatever

    4/28/2016 1:13:39 PM, by ADF1981

    Am I on track? Depends on how you look at it. My focus has shifted. Today I updated my macros and set them for maintenance. It's not giving up on the last 5 pounds, but sort of a break from the stress of it all. I feel like I've been pushing so hard and the wheels are just spinning. This may l... Read more

  • Sugar Detox Challenge: Day 3

    4/27/2016 11:49:42 PM, by PRETTYATHEIST

    More chocolate milk today after my work-out. But I am having some cravings now that dinner is over. I usually have some sort of sweet after dinner and I'm finding that I really want some. Interestingly there isn't a specific think that I am craving. I guess that's how sugar addiction works thoug... Read more

  • Sugar Detox Challenge: Day 2

    4/26/2016 7:43:39 PM, by PRETTYATHEIST

    So my main task this week is to blog my sugar cravings. Today I haven't really had any to report. The only sugar I've had is 8 ounces of chocolate milk after my 6 mile run today. I did also have a cup of raspberries but I don't think that counts in this detox. I do find that on days I exerci... Read more

  • Back on track challenge Day 23

    4/26/2016 10:50:09 AM, by ADF1981

    Hey spark friends! I've been a little off track, but today is going well. Saturday was on track, but Sunday we had two treat meals. Monday was pretty much on track, but I went over on my total calories a little bit because I was wanting BBQ sauce and later had a bagel instead of one of my planned... Read more
