Patience is a Virtue

It’s very subtle…but I think I’m starting to notice a few changes. I doubt anyone else will notice quite yet—it’s early, and it’s not like I’ve changed clothing sizes or anything yet.

It Takes Much More than Diet and Exercise

I have been finding myself frustrated lately. I can’t seem to find the time to work out as much as I’d like. Motivation is definitely NOT the issue! There’s just too much going on all the time….and next week doesn’t look much better either.
My evening schedules are just that—-they are scheduled. Here’s an example of

One Foot in Front of the Other

I couldn’t wait to weigh in this morning as it seemed like things have been going so well since last week’s hiccup of .6 lb gain. I’m certain it was from extra sodium as it came off within two days.
But what started off as excitement—turned to deep mathematical concentration. The scale showed I’d lost a


What Goes Up….is Definitely Coming Down!

This week seems like a blur…..just Sunday I was coming home from what I call “workout weekend”….and now here it is Friday already. The closest thing I came to getting on my bike this week was today when Amanda Frommer and I met early this morning to ride the August 18th 5K race route. We


There’s Nothing Better Than the Good ‘Ol Outdoors….maybe

I can’t believe it—it’s been four weeks now since I started this blog and started taking my health seriously (and publically!). I’ve weighed regularly, and have stuck to my plans as much as possible. But it hasn’t always gone as I’ve planned. In fact, I don’t think much has gone the way I had planned.

It’s All in the Numbers, Baby!

As someone who is trying to lose weight, and lead a healthy lifestyle, I love reading weight loss success stories. In fact, I have been glued to watching previous seasons of the Biggest Loser on Netflix—in my very little spare time. I usually get one episode in from 11pm-midnight. I’m already tired by that point
