Weigh in Wednesday – 10/18/17

Weigh in Wednesday – 10/18/17

Weigh in time!   I only have a quick sec to update — because this week (like all of October) is crazy cakes…. but here I go:   My 10-day-best was 189.4 but my overall moving aver is 190.5, down from 192.3! As you can see by my individual weight in, I was actually lightest last Thursday — weird!       How was your weigh in this week?

My weight this week: I was so pleased when I stepped on the scale this week and weighed in at 190.4.   That means its working!   What are we eating? We are still eating mainly from out Family Foods List — we’re just going to keep on going.   We haven’t been perfect — but it’s super encouraging that hubby is coming up with ideas for heathier versions of whatever he’s craving.   Meals this week: A few of…

Just for Fun Friday — October Bucket List

Just for Fun Friday — October Bucket List

Inspiration: Seasonal Living Lists: Paper & Glam September Bucket List Last month, I compiled a list of fun, fall themed activities/treats/to-do’s for myself.  I’m happy to announce that I was able to check each item off my list! It was so fun to put fun first! In order to hit everything on the list, I had to purposefully plan in activities.  It made me keep in mind fun things as well as work and home and responsibilities.   October Bucket List: This…

Thursday things — my life in lists.

Thursday things — my life in lists.

I have a confession:  I’m a list maker… As I flipped through my bullet journal, I notice how many lists I make.  Each day, each week, and each month… lists and lists and lists.  Anyone else?   I guess I treat lists like a way to organize my brain dump and to be able to see what I’m dealing with.   My latest example of this is my Family’s Power Food List (it’s a personalized Simply Filling and Abs Diet…

Weigh in Wednesday – 10/4/17

Happy Wednesday everyone!  It’s Weigh in Time!   I have to admit, when I stepped on the scale today I was a bit disappointed — I weighted 194.8 when last week I weighted 194.4.  To me, this is like a gain of 0.4… but then I remembered I use Happy Scale for this very reason.  I had really low numbers most days last week, but after camping and feeling poopy my weight shot up.   My moving average is 193.5…

A camping we will go!

A camping we will go!

Just for Fun this week, we’re going camping!   Hubby, myself, and my doggie are all packing up and heading to Morrow Mountain State Park (here in NC) for a weekend of camping and trails!   It’s supposed to be really gorgeous weather for camping and campfires — high in the mid 70’s, lows in the 50’s.   Meal Plan: Since we are leaving after work, we plan to eat dinner on the road (probably chick fil a) and then…

Weigh in Wednesday — 9/27/17

Truth Time: Today’s weigh in — 194.6 That’s up a pound from last week but only 0.2 pounds this month. I know exactly why my weight is up again — it’s that I’m just eating whatever I want regardless of the portions/macros. Grit I recently went on a rant about grit — stick-to-it-iveness — and feel like it’s totally appropriate here.  When the going gets tough with my weight loss, I just give in.  I justify and rationalize why it’s…

September bucket list update!

September bucket list update!

Bucket List Update: As you can see, I’ve made some progress on my September bucket list!  With one week left, I do have some work to do.  This weekend, the plan is to hit up an apple orchard!   This way we can pick apples and have cider and donuts all in the same day! When we get home, we’re going to have to watch the Michigan vs Purdue football game and scratch another item off the list!   Notice…

Weigh in Wednesday – 9/20/17

Weekly Recap Like all my weeks, this one was busy! I’ve noticed that when I plan and start to prep, things come together a bit easier.  It also helps when hubby is on my same team.  Otherwise, it’s like playing soccer while he’s playing tennis.  Not even the same court/field. Accountability time! Check in time!   This week I’ll track calories and then the grams of Protein/Fat/Carbs… starting with my target. Target– 1700 — 134/60/178 Mon —  1555 — 117/53/158…

Weigh in Wednesday — 9/13/17

What a week! There was a combination of factors that I believe led me to a crazy roller coaster of a week. First, my period was this week — and it hit me like a sack of potatoes.  Second, there was lots of panic about Hurricane Irma coming and I was totally freaking out by mid-week… which caused a bit of stress eating.  Third, the weather really was crappy at the start of the week.  We had some minor street…
