Getting back to the way I'm supposed to be

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

It's been a stressful few months for me - but I am finally starting to get my head above water again. I did a pretty good job of maintaining during all of this - which is huge fore me, I would usually eat myself into oblivion.

Last week was my worst eating week since March 1st when I started this journey. And as an exercise in WAKING MYSELF UP I figured up how many calories I had eaten - it was NOT GOOD. So, I'm back to tracking everything I eat and trying to get at least 30 minutes of exercise into my day.

I appreciate those of you who have checked on me or given me encouragement during this time. I could do not do this without all the support.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

New Not Too Unhealthy but COOL Food Find.

Thursday, August 14, 2008

Okay . . . I have to say up front that I am not a big coffee fan. I love the smell of it, and I'll drink a mocha every now and then if I really need a kick of caffeine - but honestly, I LOOOVE Hot Chocolate. It is my favorite.

Well - the other day while perusing the grocery store, I found THIS:

You probably can't read the little ribbon but it says, "With as much Caffeine as a Cup of Coffee"! WOOHOO!! I snapped it up. The taste is pretty good (no Starbucks hot chocolate, but hey) and the nutritional information isn't as bad as I thought it would be:

Fat: 2g
Dietary Fiber: 1g
Protein: 1g
And 30% Calcium!

So now I have a yummy beverage to help wake me up in the morning!!! (And I found this at Marsh - but they probably have it at Wal-mart, etc.)

What do you use to wake up in the morning? Tell me! I want to know!

Surviving the party onslaught

Tuesday, August 12, 2008

So somehow - I'm still maintaining after an anniversary and several birthday parties in a 2 week period.

I am back to tracking my food and I did quite well yesterday. I'm sincerely hoping that my body is so used to this weight that it is ready to LOSE again.

I am surprised I haven't gained, as I have been under more stress than I've been under in a long time. And stress and my body don't get along very well.

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Yes I am alive

Still maintaining and not losing, but it is better than gaining.

I've been literally DROWNING at work - but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel and I hope I'll be able to get back into the groove of tracking my food, working out regularly, and posting updates on here.

Don't give up on me! I'll be back!!

But today - I am celebrating.

Happy Monday everyone.
