Mid week update post and a Thank You.

Sliding back into a groove is how the last few days have gone, making good decisions where whats going into my mouth is concerned has not been the easiest thing in the world and I am feeling hungry starting about 4pm daily. My body wants more and it wants it right now dammit! but I know that walking through this initial burst of rebellion that will eventually subside needs to be done, then things can get back to normal.
Sticking mainly with whole foods as I was doing before I fell off of the wagon is my plan, I have also started counting calories again while my drinking has remained the same since 2008, 1 gallon of green tea and close to if not more than another gallon of H2O daily so no change was needed there besides stopping with the coffee in the morning.
Over all this "restart" is going as I would hope, the scale is cooperating, getting in some movement is happening and all while I nurse a shoulder injury. Posting in the blog again is helping I think as it gives me a place to "put it out there" how things are going so I will continue to post as often as I can.
Today the post will have to be short, sweet and to the point though as I have my daughter that just woke up so my attention is needed elsewhere, Thank you for the support as of late, the emails are great and the comments help more than you would think.
Until next time
As Ever


  1. Be kind to yourself, that is the biggest thing I can say. You know the nuts and bolts of weight loss it really is about the mental stuff. It's about feeling good enough. I think a couple/family working on weight together is another key. Carving out quality time for each other. I know when Mike and I are feeling good about "us" we really feel better about ourselves too. So find time for some date nights :)

  2. Hey I want to buy a Mountain Bike that is strong enough for trails in Northern AZ but not break the bank. Any suggestions?

  3. Glad to see things are getting back on track for you!

  4. I do imagine the cold is worse up there in Yankee land but here in the deep South it literally went from upper 90s to barely cracking 60 in the space of a few weeks. It's 5:51am and I was supposed to be at the gym at 5...and I'm still sitting here at the table drinking coffee, wrapped up in a Snuggie. :D

    We settle in with our "winter weight" now and try again in the spring,..

  5. Hey there! I followed you a few years back and I'm happy to see you are still around and sharing. I just wanted to say hello and let you know there's another person out there who has been inspired. I just restarted and a new blog was born; I'm hoping to get to the point where I have a 'progress' tab soon!

  6. Hey there! I'm glad you're still around; I was a lurker a few years back and I really appreciated your thoughtful posts. I'm back at it and hope to have 'progress photo' links of my own soon! Just wanted to say hello.

  7. Dude, glad to see this post. Sorry I didn't see it until today. Hoping October has seen your motivation continue. Wishing you well.
