WWW – Week 14, 46%

Sometimes I look at slow and steady progress and feel extremely disappointed with myself that I don’t tend to skip that extra beer or slice of cheese in order to get to my goals faster. Other times I look at my slow and steady progress and remember to rejoice that I weigh about 10# less […]

WWW – Week 13, 40%

Well, a week of tracking clearly makes a big difference! I’m back to my previous low weight since starting this journey (which I initially hit 5 weeks ago), so that’s annoying and great all at the same time.

WWW – Weeks 10/11/12, 28%

Whomp whomp… isn’t it funny (and not haha-funny) how easy it is to let go of our best intentions and fall back into old habits? Clearly the month of March was a bust for me. Nothing crazy, but extra calories here and there make a difference for sure in seeing the scale trend in the […]

WWW – Week 3, 27%

Whoop whoop! I’m officially 37, which somehow makes me feel old as hell, even though I usually don’t care about my age at all. I’m pretty sure that’s because I’ve been stuck at age 27 in my head for (*gulp*) a decade now, so it’s eye opening to realize that I really need to adjust […]

WWW – Week 2, 24%

It’s time for my week 2 check-in! I was a little bit all over the place because of events and then being sick, but I hung in there and did pretty well overall. It’s a process getting back in the habit of eating mindfully and not just grazing and drinking without thought! Starting Weight: 190.3#Weight […]

WWW – Week 1, 18%

Whoop whoop! The first week of eating mindfully is always such a shock to my system (in a good way). I had a couple of days where I was fairly hungry, but I’m guessing that was mostly because of the sugar cravings and my stomach being used to eating way too much food at a […]

WWW – Week 0, 0%

What is it about a new year that makes it feel exciting to start fresh on a project? 🙂 This year, my project is ME! I started tracking my food yesterday (even though it was a travel day home from Mexico), and this morning I stepped on the scale at 190.3#. I figure that’s as […]

WWW – January 2019 Goals

Hey everyone… I’m back! Somehow, it’s been nearly 8 months since I’ve been in this space again. I’ve been thinking about things, and really, it comes down to the fact that I avoid it when I feel down about my life choices and embarrassed that I haven’t gotten a handle on my health yet. At […]

WWW – Week 3, 10%

Well, I went a little off the rails last Wednesday – Saturday. There was a lot going on (snowboarding with my brother, the anniversary of my SIL’s death, a friend’s band opening for a local concert, my husband’s hockey tournament, and an overnight 3 hours from home for St. Patty’s Day with an old friend […]

Last week I wrote a post about Fear. Fear of failing…fear of so many things. I’m tired of being afraid, so I’m doing something about it.  For many years I was great at writing my Weekly Wednesday Weigh-In posts. It transformed to TISW for awhile (The Incredible Shrinking Wife) and to MILF (pretty self-explanatory, ha!), but […]

Day 2, #NaBloPoMo – WWW

Oh how I detest writing updates that basically say I haven’t done shit with my goals, but that’s the truth, and so on day 2 of #NaBloPoMo, that’s what I’m writing in this space. On the upside, I’ve been pretty good the last few weeks about not spiraling out of control with my nutrition choices. […]

WWW – The Beginning, Again

Okay folks, if you follow me on MyFitnessPal, then you’ve seen that I’m working on getting back into logging my calories and toeing the line for my nutrition. I really like the 21 Day Fix containers because they have taught me a lot about how to get in the right ballpark of macros and calories […]

WWW – Ankle Issues

Well, I damn near broke my ankle last Tuesday night by twisting it (turning it over on the outside) while going up the stairs, so running and working out in general is completely on hold right now. I went from zero weight-bearing and crutches only last Wednesday to walking pretty well on it one week later, […]

Emerald Coach

Less than 3 months ago I decided to give coaching with Beachbody a try. I was already using one of their programs and loving it (21 Day Fix), and between the incentive of the coaching discounts and the allure of the accountability of having teammates and customers, I decided to go for it. Let me […]
