Healthy Steps – Weeks 51 &52

Wednesday (January 9) I checked in at WW. When I did, I realized it was a big day. It has been 1 year (and 4 before that) since I said I was serious about working on a healthier lifestyle. So… have I done it? While I am currently on an upswing, I have lost a total of 22.2 lbs this…

Healthy Steps – Weeks 49 &50

I weighted in on Wednesday as was up 2.8 pounds. This is not shocking, but it does mean that I am yo-yoing a bit. Again, not shocking. This week is Christmas, and I have a lot of time off (yeah!) but of course I’ll but spending it at home, which means more cooking. This is good. Wednesday is a “dark”…

Healthy Steps – Week 48

This week I weighed in at my normal at work meeting. It is so wonderful to type the word “normal” and to really feel like something close to that is approaching my life. Excitingly, I was down 2 pounds. As my goal right now is just to stay on an even keel, that felt good. WW has new “Success Story”…

Healthy Steps – Weeks 46 & 47

So, in all this drama, what am I doing about my goal of taking healthy steps. Well, actually, I’d like to report some progress. It’s all non-scale victories. I’m back to eating breakfast, lunch, and dinner. As such, my blood sugar seems to have stabilized, which in turn makes me feel better. I have been hitting activity levels out of…

Healthy Steps – Weeks 42-45

I need to get this straight. Week 42 was Oct. 31. It was a black-out day. Week 43 was November 7. I gained 5 pounds. Week 44 was November 14. I was taking a workshop in Tubac, Arizona and did not weight in. Week 45 was today. I gained 3.4 pounds and my life in in chaos. I’m working on…

Healthy Steps – Week 41

My apologies for being late with this week’s post. I had the best intentions, but Wednesday was “dark” for my group, but beyond that, I spent the whole day training and had a long day. Thursday was another training day. Friday I did a WW check in, but didn’t have time to write. And Saturday was… well… a story. So…

Healthy Steps – Week 40

I just posted Week 39 yesterday, but I’m trying to get more on track. I need it. Another 2 pounds up. But I’m on a normal schedule now with a  fridge full of prepared food and a willingness to work toward my goals for the upcoming week (just like I said yesterday). Eating my prepared food Hit 10,000 all seven…

Healthy Steps – Week 39

It’s Tuesday, one day before I weight in for Week 40. That should tell you about how I did last week. I gained 4.6 pounds. This was NOT a shocking result. I had the WSO show followed by two days of travel where the most nutritious thing I ate was a box of cheetos. Unfortunately, on Thursday I hit the…

Healthy Steps – Week 35-37

It’s been a whirlwind few weeks. The week before I left for Hawaii was full of odd events and doing a blog post just didn’t make the list. When I was in Hawaii I was having too much fun to even think about healthy steps (also, I ate… everything) and when I came back it took all my energy to…
