Long Overdue Update

I have been a completely delinquent blogger. Not only that, I have been pretty delinquent on my weight loss journey.

I have not been working out as much as I should have been and I have not been doing daily challenges. I have done a few things that are adventure worthy, a three mile charity walk for suicide prevention, the "Mutt Strutt" which is a 2.5 mile walk for the local Humane Society,  and just this weekend I went on a walk at Fort Harrison and did some geocaching with Cloud Dancing's Heartsong, her sister, and the Dude Monkey! It was great fun!

I also have not been keeping track of food very well. I have to get back on track with that. I had set up reminders on my phone for each meal... but for some reason I turned them off. Maybe turning them back on will help. Although half of the time, I just ignored them. Any ideas for keeping me on track with my food tracking... PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS!!!

I have still have not weighed in, but i did check my measurements. Since the last time I measured, I lost a half inch on my thighs, and gained .25 of an inch on my arm (which isn't necessarily a bad thing) and my waist and bust stayed the same.  So overall, I think things are going ok in the weight department. My clothes are still fitting the same.

I am probably not gaining weight, but I don't think I am really losing any weight. I am going to weigh in this week, and take note of how I am doing.  Hopefully I haven't slid backward too much. I think this "no scale" plan backfired a little, because I took a little more license to cheat than I would have without it.

I feel I need to energize my work out a little. My "daily" challenge for June is going to be to workout BEFORE work FOUR days a week and on two of those days, I do a "2 a day" where I work out in the evening as well as in the morning.

I have not decided on a monthly adventure for June. I am thinking about making it water aerobics... but I am open to suggestions.

I am going to really try to update more. It is hard now that the weather is nice I am spending a lot of time outside with the Dude Monkey!

I look forward to your advice on the food tracking and the monthly adventure!



  1. I use loseit for the food tracking part. It's super easy because there's so many foods already programed into it, and it lets you create and save custom recipes for stuff you make. I think it's easy to keep up with because it's right there on an app on my phone. Not sure it would be so easy if you had to rely on the website, but it would be worth a try.

  2. I use sparkpeople, basically the same thing and I have an app for my phone. I would be lost without it. I have been doing pretty well so far, but my reminders have not been going off for my google calendar.. I don't know why!

    Thanks for the encouragement. Got any ideas about an adventure!

  3. Canoe trip with the hubby?
