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…

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 begin to talk about all…

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 hard. I know that it’s…

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 been a week of good…

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 4 which happened to be…

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, PMS, and pretzels (a food…
