Doing It Again

The SSSD Challenge is getting closer to being done. I wish that I'd done the challenges better, but know that it's been kinda crap timing to be trying to add things to my plate.  

I hopped on the new Allan Challenge. I need the daily email thing... the reminders that I'm trying to lose weight. It's weird how different this weight loss experience is while trying to relocate and make it through life.

But the good news is that things are calming down. Life is always going to be hectic. Now that I've got a job going and a couple of side gigs, money is MUCH less of a stress. I move to the new, permanent location on Wednesday (own room, functional kitchen, peaceful space).

Myra mentioned finding the daily successes and keeping myself on track. I need to commit to that. I want to get back on track. Blog every day, force myself to think about health and be able to recognize and reward good choices. It makes things more exciting.

Thursday's success... 
Breakfast: Veggie stir-fry.
Lunch: turkey pita + banana.
Snack: Peaches (from my home town!) + an orange.
Dinner: bagel with lox and cream cheese.
Snack: mini cook up of spaghetti.

My carbs are up up up. They've been up up up since I got here. However, I found a good market with tasty produce (not the cheapest, but it's consistently GOOD).

I spaced my eating out more so I don't come home and eat the entire world at night. It mostly worked. I was up pretty late and that's why spaghetti happened. So... get my sleeping back in order and I'll help that as well.


  1. You are getting your groove back!

  2. i like that one day at a time and finding a success in it. Keep it up

  3. It all happens first in our minds. It has to be a conscious effort. We must resign ourselves to that. It's not all that bad. It's worse to be out of control, depressed, and off balance. You and I know what to do. Take care of yourself each day.

  4. Good luck with the challenge. I've found that even though I'm still moving at my own pace in terms of fitness and diet, going through it with a group of people (even if they are a virtual group) helps me stay more on track because I don't want to disappoint myself or them!


sorry guys, so much spam, gotta put the filters up again.
