Hmm streaking... That was another time, another body. I cannot begin to think of what would happen if I took off full force totally nude! ... Read more

I tend to blog yesterday's happenings but want to catch up to feel even with ONEKIDSMOM and the Mentally Tough class I graduated with! I grabbed the big girl panties and ran with them today, feeling back in control although soooo tired. M... Read more
Day 44 continuing the journey in a "season of pain".
Monday, February 17, 2014      4 comments

Although I'm not in pain, perhaps this is my "season of pain" that Steve Siebold described. I've developed what I think are good habits; do a bang up job when I schedule everything. Once the schedule is off, I have difficulty making good cho... Read more
Had another MT moment yesterday: I did NOT buy the travel trailer; but buffet confessions on day 43

What does a bored couple people do to avoid shoveling...again? Drive 100 miles to an RV show in Atlantic City. It's my second one and this time I knew what not to do. I climbed up and down only a few of the McMansions on wheels and then foc... Read more
Today is day 43 of being mentally tough. I found a leak in the brain boat during a storm.

Gotta plug this one up instead of bailing. Yesterday I removed the top bread and peeled the bottom... like always. Lettuce, turkey a slice of provolone which probably did not amount to as much as I estimated in the tracker. Good me. Ah... Read more

There is a celebration at my job today. Anniversary awards for staff in my department. Food, food and more food. And oh, heaven help me, my group is bringing a cheese platter. I've girded my loins, jammed the sword into my scabbard and picked ... Read more
Days 40 and 41 nearing the halfway mark, some numbers and anticipation.
Thursday, February 13, 2014      5 comments

It's harder to find something to blog about as being compliant seems routine. I've stayed on the lower end, or sometimes below my range of 1260-1360 calories. I haven't set any ultra-low targets as I was well aware I was stepping into territor... Read more
The end of day 39, Mentally Tough and still compliant. 99.99%

Ok, I can't REALLY call it a slip up. It is an intentional purchase. I bought Hershey's dark chocolate kisses. You all know I don't have a sweet tooth. Heck, I wish lasagna came in foil wrapped bite sized pieces. I digress. I was looking... Read more

My new coworkers are noting my perfectly portioned foods. My boss has been telling people how I can sit in her office, her desk has a plethora of goodies, and I do not eat one! I've told a few people about Spark. I feel in control, happier ... Read more
It must be the weather. Day 38 was challenged and barely recovered
Monday, February 10, 2014      6 comments

Sheesh, how weird can it get? I started the day out perfectly balanced, food wise. We decided to go out, just to not be housebound, and neither discussed the previous night's grossness but we both admitted we didn't want to. DH is on a tempora... Read more
Today is day 37, Mentally tough in all aspects of life. Got PO'd at a lot of people last night.

I was looking forward to this dinner/party thing. Music, comedy, food. I stuck to my guns and had 1 glass of wine, about 6 potato chips...because they were there and ate meat, scraped off any sauces, salad and skipped the pasta. I won't even bot... Read more

I save the bones from a rotisserie chicken then use to make a stock with carrots, onions, celery and poultry seasoning. Fairly plain but the store-bought chicken usually have a good-browned skin for base. I had lots of frozen vegetables. Lots.... Read more
Tired Nana, today is day 36 MT with paybacks!

I don't remember but one or two "date nights" when the kids were babies. We both worked; me evening or night shift, him rotating shifts, extra shifts, extra jobs for both. Did what we did to be where we are today. Our sitters were for necessity ... Read more
Day 35 Reviewing triggers from last night's slip-up. Mental Toughness check up.
Friday, February 07, 2014      7 comments

There is no self-flagellation going on here. I determined what my triggers were for my eating style last night and will stop them next time. I evaluated my portion, ate what was on my plate and even allowed for a small glass of wine. Then se... Read more
