Yesterday I had my face to face meeting with the nutritionist (I get this once a month with the plan I bought). I am really liking this. It was 1 hour to just talk about me, my history and how I feel about food, discuss ways to manage food and my emotions. She reviews my food journal and gives me small tips of things that I can do to improve my nutrition. She also writes down small goals for me to tweak what I am doing. The best part is Emily is also a runner knows that world too. Plus the ...

He is to another Monday. -1 for me this week. 221.5. I will take it. I was very good about logging the entire week. The quality of food was OK. I need to work on my snacking and having better quality food.

The Truffle Shuffle was fun. Some girls were wearing wedding dresses. My official time was 40:15, 10:04 average pace!! I am pretty happy with that. I felt good the entire time. I probably could have run it a little faster but I was worried about going too fast and losing stea...

I have a lot of nervous energy now.

We had a nice and relaxing Valentine’s day. I did OV...

Down 1.5 pounds this week. 222.5. I am happy with that. I followed the nutritionist suggestions of increasing my calories. I kept the 1600 base calories CK suggests but I ate back most of my exercise calories (I wear a heart rate monitor, so it is as accurate as you can get). So I intentionally ate many more calories than I would normally plan to eat. I tried to keep the calories, good calories but did have a treat each day.

After a couple of days doing this I noticed that I did n...

The Biggest Loser Challenge did not happen last night. I guess they did not have enough people. Bummer.

Although las night I heard the best thing from my 10 year old daugher:

‎"I love my life!" she says as we are driving home from Target. All we were doing was looking for Valentine day stuff for school. I am a lucky Mom to have daughters that appreciate the small things!!!

We don't have a lot of fancy things or take fancy vacations but we do spend most of ou...
