Updates from Meg world!

I’ve done a lot of soul-searching and have realized, both by reading my food book and talking to Ashley Leia in the comments, that I need to face my junk food addiction head on. What I need to do is wait until I have an intense craving for junk food, preferably for some I canContinue reading “Updates from Meg world!”

From Fat to Free: Chapter 1

Okay, so I’m reading a new book about weight loss called From Fat to Free: How to End Your Toxic Relationship with Food by Elizabeth Lizberg. It has journaling questions for each chapter, so I thought, what the heck, I’ll blog them. There’s a companion Action Plan Journal which is rather expensive, but it turns outContinue reading “From Fat to Free: Chapter 1”

Great news!

I have great news! Apparently my weight-loss efforts have been paying off. That, or our scales are broken. [Shrugs.] I weighed myself today and couldn’t believe it. I think I’m making progress and am on the right track. I’ve just got to keep it up. I’ve come up with a tenuous solution to my dietingContinue reading “Great news!”

Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!

So I finally broke down and sought out medical care today when I took my resting heartbeat once again, and it was 100. Same old, same old. I figured that can’t be healthy. I haven’t been able to do my treadmill routine ever since I was vaccinated twelve days ago, and nothing has improved. IContinue reading “Be still my heart! No, really, slow down!”

I’m a genie in a bottle!

Darn it all! It’s been eight days since I got the vaccine, and I still can’t do my treadmill routine anymore. I went back and tried, and I got lightheaded. My pulse skyrocketed, so I turned down the speed of the treadmill from 3.2 mph to 2.5 mph (while maintaining the 4° incline). That gotContinue reading “I’m a genie in a bottle!”

Out of commission.

There aren’t words for how discouraged I am. The injury to my shins hasn’t gone away. I’m pretty sure it was caused by spending time on the treadmill in shoes that were too heavy. I only wore them the one day, but I’m still having calf pain. So I finally realized I have to restContinue reading “Out of commission.”

Struggling but doing it!

I awoke with a dreadful headache and finally took some pain pills. I’m not sure if I’ll make it to the gym today. It’s becoming harder and harder to go, especially since I haven’t yet conquered the footwear issue. I think my second pair of new shoes (which will hopefully work better than the first)Continue reading “Struggling but doing it!”

When the going gets tough…

So, I hit a wall. (Don’t worry. It was a metaphorical wall.) I decided last night to go ahead and not expect myself to use the treadmill on both Sunday and Wednesday evenings. That way, I can use those times to take twice-weekly showers, and I’ll still be burning 300 calories 12 times a week,Continue reading “When the going gets tough…”

Hell, yes.

Yeah, I’m braindead, but very  proud of myself. I think I started on this treadmill kick last Sunday. (It’s Saturday today, for reference, if you’re reading this in the future.) I spent one hour on the treadmill then, two on Monday, two on Tuesday, one on Wednesday (the day I spent four hours driving toContinue reading “Hell, yes.”
