How do you lose weight? How do you work towards the life you want?


(and a healthy sense of humor)


Doctor, Doctor!

Went to the doctor today and they are not going to release me back to work until Monday. I was trying for sometime this week, but then they freaked me out about getting worse so I decided to stick with the doctor's advice.

How's my eating? Terrible, when I was miserablely strolling the supermarket after I was released from the hospital I got mostly pasta, because that is easy to eat. I hope to make it to the store tomorrow to pick up some mushy healthier options.

How's my working out? Non-existent. I barely have the energy to sit upright at the moment so I haven't worked out. As soon as I am feeling better though it will be full steam ahead.

I have to say that being knocked on my a** with this illness has pissed me off. The good news is, is that I am excited to get back in the swing of taking better care of myself. Maybe tomorrow I can do at least a 15 minute workout, or just take a long leisurely walk, we'll see. I am just crossing my fingers that I don't gain back the weight I lost in January, but if I do, you better bet your bottom that it will come off again!

Love to you all!


  1. Don't push yourself! If your Doctor says rest, then rest. Don't worry, you will be back in the saddle in no time.


  2. My opinion is committ yourself to getting better first and foremost, follow doctor's orders, and cut yourself a bit of slack on stuff like eating a little pasta and not working'll get back into the routine soon enough.

  3. If you're like me, it's not just what food is easy but what food is comforting when I'm sick. It's sooooo difficult to "not use food" to feel good - especially when you are sick. Hang in sound like your physical recovery is the most important right now. If I lived close, I would bring you food!

  4. oOOOoo hope you get better quick! :(

    p.s. better to have grabbed pasta than to have grabbed chocolate! :)
