Just Another Day

Well, I think I’ve said it before, but the biggest way I know I am making a life change is because I am going to the gym after missing a day.  In years past, I just gave up – which seems kind of silly now.  If I have a bad day, so what?  Let’s say…

Lazy Day

I have learned something.  I cannot trust myself to go to the gym after work.  It always sounds like a great plan but today makes twice that it hasn’t come to fruitition.  J was right though…he knew that if I didn’t go, I’d be mad at myself.  And even though I know logically that giving myself…

Overwhelmed

We’re in the process of making our first healthy menu for the family.  We do menus because we are fickle people and it takes hours to decide what to have each day for every meal.  Who has time for that?  This way there is no question.  Well, I used to have this pretty much down…

Oops, I Did It Again

That candy is on a mission to destroy me!  Don’t get me wrong, I’m still doing better than I have in the past.  I have, believe it or not, consumed an entire bag of Dove Caramel Mik Chocolate Promises in a day.  Crazy, huh?  I have one chocolate in my desk drawer right now that I’m…

Mixed Day

Alright, I weighed in and I gained half a pound from yesterday.  Not even cool.  I am down two pounds for the week though so I’ll take it at 235. Started my day off well with a trip to the gym and then decided to ask my boss for the day off.  It’s rare that…

It’s Calling My Name!

The Easter candy, that is.  I tried not to buy anything this year that I would be super tempted to eat, but we got some goodies from my dad & stepmom.  So hard to resist.  I broke down tonight and ate a few.  Can’t get upset about it though!  I can’t completely remove chocolate from…

Hoppy Easter!

aka Cheeeeeeeat Day And you know what?  I don’t feel bad one bit.  I ate all the food I wanted to, including two cookies.  And about five devilled eggs, which may have been a bit overboard.  And mashed potatoes.  And corn casserole.  And broccoli salad with full-fat mayo.  And a roll.  And ham.  Oh boy. …

Feeling Rested

Ahhhh, 13 hours of sweet, sweet, sleep.  Just the what the doctor ordered.  I feel like a new woman, really.  My day was filled with exercise, coloring Easter eggs, at-home pedicures (for me and my little girl), Pixos, and Lite Brite.  What could be better?! I have come to the conclusion that I really can…

One Foot On The Ground…

…the other still on the wagon.  Okay, that may be a little dramatic (Me, dramatic?  Nooooooo.)  No gym for me today.  I woke up a little late and just decided that I’d go after work.  Well, that didn’t happen.  I had a dentist appointment which left my face half numb and then we took the…

Relearning Restaurant Menus

Is relearning a word?? Anyway, today was an interesting day. Well, not really in it’s entirety, but J & I learned a lot as were trying to find a place to eat. I’ll go through the regular stuff and then get to that. Worked out this morning but gave myself a little break and didn’t…
