Monday Check-in 2-8-16

Well it all caught up to me. I gained back 3 pounds in a week! FUCK YOU SUPER BOWL! Honestly, I deserved it. I didn't even bother watching what I ate or exercise this past week. I will be better this week! At least I checked in. So, how about you? … [Read more...]

Monday Check-In 2-1-16

Hi! So maybe this checking in thing is working! I'm down 6.4 points total, 1.8 from last week. I'm not sure how. I guess I am being more mindful. I went out for breakfast with my friend the other day, and only ate half the bagel and didn't get hashbrowns. Tonight when my family all got cheesesteaks, I got the steak and cheese on a salad. I exercised more than usual, but only made my step goal twice :( I didn't exercise today either, because I woke with a pretty bad backache. But tomorrow, hopefully I will be back to better decisions, more water and more steps. I'm encouraged by the results! If I keep losing 6 pounds a month I'll be where I want to be in a year. Works for me! This week … [Read more...]

Monday Check-in 1-25-16

I can't believe how bad my willpower is! I NEED to get off sugar, but I love it so much. I need my fix! I swear it's harder than when I quit smoking. But I guess cutting back is better than going as I was, right? So I lost 1.2 pounds this week. I didn't deserve to. I didn't exercise. I hardly watched what I ate, but I did make a few healthier decisions. Just not enough. I never get past lunch in my tracking on My Fitness Pal. Last week was rainy and cold and I was too busy to exercise. BULLSHIT. I read 3 books. I could have read them on the treadmill. I was at the computer so much last week, that my hips started to hurt when I got up. Too much of the same position. I didn't even … [Read more...]

Tuesday Check-in 1-19-16 A Waffley Week

Yesterday was a holiday, and calories never count on holidays, right? Well that's my story and I'm sticking to it! In fact, it was a holiday weekend! My 18 year old son and his girlfriend came home this weekend for a music festival and two shows. My son is a singer/guitar player, so I spend a lot of time in bars eating bar food and running up tabs so he gets invited back (lame excuse, but I'm sticking to it!). It was a cool weekend because he had some really famous musicians come and sit in with him. Even Gregg Allman came and played at a show my son did with Gregg's son. (Unfortunately, my son wasn't on those two songs, but it's still cool). And, you know, festivals mean food truck food. … [Read more...]

First Monday Check-in 1-11-16

Well damn. You'd think I'd be all guns-ho the first week and lose that 4-5 lbs first excited week weight? Um no. 1.2 lbs. I'll take it though, it's better than a gain! It's been a super stressful, stuck-at-my-computer week. I overhauled my main blog over at Ana's Attic and there was just so much to deal with! Now I'm still playing catch up. Here is my e-mail box: I have 2 books I wanted to review tomorrow and haven't even started one. I haven't done my best of 2015 list yet. I can't remember the last time I opened mail and paid bills. So yeah, I have a lot to catch up on, and the stress isn't most conducive to losing weight. Successes this week: Used My Fitness Pal 4 … [Read more...]
