A.M. Weigh-in: 150.4 (sooo not right!)
Today I woke up feeling SO off. I had a horrific nightmare. HORRIFIC. I won’t go into it, but I can’t remember having a nightmare like that since the year following my dad’s death when I was 17. So when I woke up this morning, I was shaken, really upset, [...]

Over the hump on hump-day!

A.M. weigh-in: 149.6
Seeing the 140s again feels SO good!! So good that instead of hitting the elliptical this morning, I went back to bed for an hour! Probably not one of my better moves, but I am still tired and sore. I am doing my hour at lunchtime at the gym today, though, so that’s [...]

Tae Kwon Doh!

A.M. weigh-in: 150.2 (sooooooo damn close to crossing back over!)
Last night was my first real TKD class - average age of students: 16. I was the only adult female. There was one adult male (prob. late 40s or early 50s and his son was also in the class.) The rest were kids, mostly high school [...]

Tweaks and upping the ante

A.M. weigh-in: 151.0 (I can literally see the 140s just around the corner!)
Lately I’ve been eating 2-3 meals a day with a snack. Or I’ve been eating Weight Watcher 1 point mini bars ALL DAY (I think I ate 10 of them yesterday!) This is not effective for me, even if the daily total points [...]

Uh-oh - it’s another 7 week countdown…

A.M. weigh-in: 151.4
Before I get into my post, I’d like to mention that I saw The Soloist last night. It was seriously amazing. You can read my full review on my movie review website: Cinemarific.
So I realized this morning that exactly 7 weeks from tomorrow, the boys and I are leaving on our next rafting/kayaking [...]

Soon I’ll be breaking boards with my head!

A.M. weigh-in: 151.4 (I really never thought I’d be HAPPY to see that number, but I totally am!! I was becoming convinced that I was never going to get below 153 again!)
Last night, Sean and I had our first Tae-Kwon-Do class. It was a private orientation so it’s the only time we’ll be in the [...]

Heading in the right direction… finally!!

A.M. weigh-in: 153.4 (heading south, thank goodness!)
Last night’s WW weigh-in: 158.8 (that’s 8.8 lbs up from my last weigh in 3 weeks ago. That IS also higher than my starting weight almost 3 months ago. That is so NOT COOL!!)
My biggest victory yesterday: I took 2 of the kids to see Earth last night and [...]

Four days and counting…

A.M. weigh in: 154.0 (that totally sucks!!)
I’ve been to the gym four days this week - that’s four days in a ROW!! I am awesome.
I have my official WW weigh in tonite. Haven’t been in like 3 weeks. My weight is up like 10 pounds. I think I now weigh more than I did when [...]

The Altoids diet

A.M. Weigh-in: 154.0 (seriously SERIOUSLY???!!)
Skipped breakfast this morning and have now eaten most of a box of chocolate covered creme de menthe Altoids while drinking a Diet Coke. Can we say wholesome, clean, all-natural foods? No, apparently, we can not.
My arms are sore from my upper body work out at the gym yesterday. For those [...]

It’s going to be a good week, damn it!

A.M. Weigh-in: 153.2
I’m determined that this week is going to go well. I need it to and so I am willing it to. My vacation last week was so restful. I really need to do that more often. While I loved the rafting, kayaking and day at Universal Studios, the BEST day was Thursday. Thursday [...]
