I've lost 185lbs, and then gained some back.
But I'm kicking ass and striving for my ultimate goal: A 200 lb loss.
Working all mental, physical and emotional aspects of being healthy, happy and fit. You'll see my ups and downs here, because I'm proud to be imperfect!

Blueberries and Overtime
Going into another overtime week and I am not feeling it. I came in yesterday (technically a holiday) for 5 hours. It was good, because we are working on special projects having to do with our medical record transition. The time always goes quickly when I have things OTHER than scheduling someone’s appointment for the 5th time. Ok, anyway…
The weekend went *ok*. I ate more than I should have. I kept it clean, but was over my calories Sunday and Monday.I’m also re-cooping from a cold. I did, however, get in my Bodyology workout Saturday before wanting to fall over, and I went to spinning last night, in the snow and freezing cold. Suck it up, buttercup. I took Sunday off of the workout schedule and slept. A lot.
Alright, moving on… I’m not going to bore you with the weekend stats. They weren’t *terrible* especially considering the kind of damage I can do with food if given the chance. But they were over my 1400 calorie cap.
The stats for today, pre-dinner:
Cals 838 Fat 21 g Cholesterol 0 mg Sodium 3359 mg Carbs 126 g Fiber 27 g Protein 36 g Sugars 53 g
B: Ezekiel and PB – pretty standard
S: 4 oz plain fat free chobani, 3 oz blueberries
L: ½ sweet potato, 4 oz clean crock-pot “refried” beans
S: ½ red pepper, 5 baby carrots, 3 tbs hummus
S: banana (maybe)
D: Not sure. Probably salad with some tuna and maybe some chick peas thrown in.
How excited was I to find fresh blueberries on sale this weekend! SYCHED! LOVE them!
Because of OT, there will be no workout tonight, but I plan on leaving early enough tomorrow to get my Group Power class in. I really enjoy it and don’t want to miss it.
Since activity is a little less this week, it means diet has to be even MORE on target.
CLASSES begin again next week! ACK! I can’t believe it! Running right back into the semester. I’m a little nervous to talk with my professors about the time off for the surgery. I’m hoping I will be able to keep up in the weeks I am unable to go to class.
Awesome news: I have surpassed the $1000 mark in my fundraising efforts! HOORAY! I’m so blessed to have so much support from friends and family. My goal is to raise $500 more, and that combined with an extremely generous donor matching contribution, will get me to my $2500 needed goal. 6 weeks left – I hope I can do it!
