I’m hard on myself. Probably harder than I should be. I set high standards and goals, and I’m good at beating myself up when I don’t reach them. When it comes to my health and weight loss journey, I push myself. And the results are impressive. I’ve lost around 160 pounds, and kept it off for over four years.
There are so many times, though, that I simply feel that this isn’t good enough. And that’s when I start beating myself up. And it’s got to stop. I need to rethink weight loss maintenance.

I wanted to continue my little streak of cooking and eating citrus fruit, peel and all, so I came up with an easy, simple chicken recipe and tried it out on a couple friends who came to dinner. My recipe is inspired by a delicious meal my friend Katherine made in Sweden, which in turn was inspired by a Martha Stewart recipe. Leave it to me to mess around with Martha’s perfection!

Remember the depression I mentioned last week? I’m feeling much better (thank you for all your messages and encouragement!), but I gotta address that depression one last time, because it had an effect on my weight. I do a weigh-in on the first of every month, and this one came after nearly two weeks of feeling kinda low. As a result, this is what I added to my weight loss chart the other morning:
It’s a bummer. Two months of Read the rest of this entry »

I’ve settled into a routine where I only do weigh-ins once a month. If I do them more frequently, I start to obsess over the numbers and I don’t need that particular obsession in my life. If I do them less frequently, I find myself derailing off my program, due to a lack of accountability.
My weigh-ins are on the first of the month. This one is a few days delayed, because I was up north when April turned to May, but I weighed myself when I got back. Wanna see how I updated my weight loss chart? Read the rest of this entry »

It’s been a fun couple days in my world. My modem crapped out on me, but today I got a brand-spanking-new one installed. So no more delays… time for my weigh-in results! Let’s take a look at the ol’ chart, shall we?
Down three pounds! OK – here’s the deal: Read the rest of this entry »

Stay tuned for a Birthday Burpees update at the end!
Sorry for the delay, folks! Normally I do my monthly weigh-in at the first of the month, but I was in Michigan when March began, and I didn’t weigh myself until I returned home, a few days later. This post was further delayed due to my birthday and the enormous Birthday Burpees challenge that came along with it.
No more delays! I stepped on the scale last week, and it said… Read the rest of this entry »
