Apparently I’m the only one

Tweet Well. I’m sure I’m not, but when asking certain things out to the twittersphere, I didn’t get much feedback from other heath and weight loss bloggers about plateaus. – I had a great chat with Samantha and exchanged a couple of emails with Debra. I know that Bitch Cakes had a very long plateau…

October: How did that happen?

Tweet This is a really weird time of year for me. There are a few things involved; It starts with my birthday at the beginning of September. I always like to go away as my “present”, plus then I don’t have to deal with the Dutch Birthday Effect (everyone congratulating you in the office, lots…

A Break

Tweet Phew. With the last months of running, goals, dietitians, working, not-sleeping enough, counting, traveling, and the last two weekends with each having a race on Sunday, I really needed a break. I didn’t actually realize I needed a break of course. Typical me likes to just keep going, even though I don’t really like…

The Dietitian, The Scale and Two Races

Tweet Ugh. It’s been so difficult time-wise to put together my thoughts on several different areas right now. There are only 24 hours in a day and I have to use them wisely. Sometimes that means putting the blogs on the back burner and doing whatever I need to do to get through the day.…

ProPoints, I’m done with you!

Tweet As of right now, I am no longer following Weight Watchers ProPoints. I’ve had enough. I am still using the program to give me guidelines on serving sizes and what ranks higher in nutritional value. But I’m done counting. I’m going to trust myself. This is not a license to go off and get…

So Far September

Tweet I did not mean to go this long without a post. In fact, I was writing up a post about my trip to Rome on my “regular” blog and I haven’t even finished that one yet. It’s been a little bit busy since I got back. My intention is always to post at least…

August Recap

Tweet Here’s the verdict on August: 1) Food journal every single day. Whether online, on paper, on post-it notes, whatever. Every day journaling. Everything consumed. Didn’t fully happen. I did journal a lot though, which led to my ultimate frustration, point counting, numbers, being hungry, etc. 2) Gym twice a week. Garrrrrr! I went once.…
