i'm baaaaaaaack.

kind of. sort of.

for a minute.

sorry i've been m.i.a. i really thought summer would be easier. more activities. more outside time. more movement.

and it kind of was. but it was also more "fun foods" (popsicles, ice cream, smores).
and because of all the activities, it was harder to stay on a schedule and have routine meals.

i am, however, rather proud of myself for maintaining my last weight. i haven't lost much more, but i also haven't gained...and that's a plus. i hope i haven't plateaued. we'll see.

i'm back to work...back to school. that means breakfast every morning (which, i must admit, i skipped over the summer. a lot). lunch at the same time every day. and smaller portions...more regulated. and dinner at about the same time every night.

i thought summer would be easier, but honestly, it's not. i hope to slip back into a routine. back into my good habits. and, hopefully, i'll be able to find some time to blog about my progress.

if you're still reading this, thank for sticking with me!


  1. Glad you are back. I agree routine makes it easier and I have been checking in on you now and then. Cant wait to see your new progress this year. proud of you for maintaining your weight through the summer. its a challenge.

  2. In health we are talking about losing weight and stuff like that and found out 3500 extra calories is equal to one pound. So if you ate 500 calories less ech day, then in one week you would lose ten pounds. 1-2 punds a week is healthy weight loss. There are websites that help you determine how many calories you should eat each day too. Never ever eat less than 1400 though cause that is very unhealthy. It also helps to get regular exercise and eat different foods from food groups to regulate the body systems. Eating breakfast also helps start your metabolism so you burn more calories in a day. Don't get distracted and make sure your goal is realistic, attainable, and specific. That way you know exactly what you want and others can keep you in check in reaching that goal. Good job! Keep up the good work!
