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 …

Healthy Steps – Week 34

It is a feat of personal strength that I am writing this. I went off the rails this week. Everything in the world was too much. EVERYTHING! And the only solution was chocolate and gummy worms intermittently thrown into my mouth, much like a seal snapping a fish out of the air. I can’t even …

Healthy Steps – Week 31, 32 & 33 (vacation edition)

It is back to reality for me with a thud. I did weigh in on Week 31 and didn’t write a post (up 1.8 pounds) and Week 32 passed in a haze of vacation. I no sooner returned to work than I had some work traveling to do and when I stepped on the scale …

Healthy Steps – Week 30

Another 1.2 pounds GONE! I had a really good week and made some excellent decisions. I’m also starting to notice the results. My feet are hurting A LOT less, my knees are good, and my arms feel like they poke out less. But there is lots of room for improvement. Frappuccinos right now seem particularly …

Healthy Steps – Week 29

I have to admit, I think I have lost a week somewhere in June or July. But I am calling weight in on July 25 as week 29 and I guess if it’s not, the counting police can come get me. When I weighed in on Wednesday i was not expecting big things; it had …

Healthy Steps – Weeks 27 & 28

I’m home sick today. I either have really bad allergies or a small cold. I’m frankly not sure which, but my level of ability to be out in the world is diminished. As such, I’m trying to: 1) take naps (I’m up to 2), and 2) catch up on… well, everything. Week 27 contained July …

Healthy Steps – Week 26

Well, I would love to report that I met my goal from last week of finally hitting 10% of my body weight lost. I can’t; instead I gained 5.4 pounds. Now, I didn’t eat badly enough for that to happen (though, obviously, there is some room for improvement.) My story has to do with asprin, …

Healthy Steps – Week 25

When I stepped on the scale today, I told my WW leader, “Anything that’s not a gain is a victory.” And I didn’t even mean that. I meant, “Anything that’s not +5 pounds is a victory.” Imagine my shock… I was down 2.2 pounds and am now less than 1 pound away from my Big …

Healthy Steps – Week 24

Progress Happens. This is the quote from this week that I sort of hung on to. I’m late posting this week, not because I did badly (I removed 4.2 pounds for a total of 35 pounds lost!) but because almost every other area of my life felt like too much and I couldn’t figure out …

Healthy Steps – Week 23

It was no shock to me that I gained 2.8 pounds this week. I camped and hiked and ate. I ate a lot of unhealthy foods, and I realized that I’m dangerously close to losing all progress. Before I could even think about that, I had to rush out of Weight Watcher’s check in to …
