Tellin’ The Truth~Thursday…

Thursday, January 10th, 2013

  I haven’t shared a Tellin’ The Truth post lately and today is the wrong day! Oh well. When I first found out I was pregnant, I kept up my exercise. I was determined to have a fit pregnancy and not lose all the ground I’ve gained over the past couple of years. I was […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

  I’ve been slacking to tell the truth this Tuesday! We’ve had a few Christmas treats–I’ve had some carbs…. I’m working on getting my exercise in–still Walk Away the Pounds and TTapp once in awhile. I tried a pilates dvd last night. I think it’s like TTapp. It looks like you’re doing NOTHING but I […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, November 6th, 2012

  I’ve been slacking on posting this feature–not sure why! Well, probably because I’ve been slacking on my exercising. It’s crazy how this summer in the HEAT, I was super faithful and getting it in 5-6 times a week for weeks on end. Somehow it’s the easiest thing to skip even after establishing a great […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, October 16th, 2012

  I’m still chugging along working on maintaining. I was doing super well until the end of September when for some reason, I started struggling with the maintenance. So, I’m trying to be more strict and hopefully keep off the pounds so that whenever I go back on the strict phase I won’t have lots […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday~What If I Have A Very Overweight Friend?

Tuesday, September 18th, 2012

Edited to note~I originally titled this “what if I have a fat friend” because I loathe the word obese. I lumped myself in with the fat friends because let’s face it–there are no “nice words for the weight I was. However, I don’t intend this post to be offensive so I changed the title 🙂 […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, September 11th, 2012

  Today, I’d like to share some links to sites I’ve found helpful on this (LOOOOOOOONG weight loss journey I’ve been on).   My fitness pal–great site to track your calories, carbs, or exercise (or all 3) The Beck Diet Solution–this is NOT a diet but a way to correct your thinking about food and […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, August 28th, 2012

  I’ve been on the strict phase of my diet for several weeks. The 1st 3 weeks, I was PERFECT! Did everything just right. Then I decided to taste a piece of cake at a birthday party …..things went downhill from there. I struggled for a week. I mostly did my plan correctly but each […]

Tellin’ The Truth Tuesday

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

  I’m back on the strict part of my diet. I’m doing very well. I haven’t done as much exercise, but my goal is 3 times this week. I don’t work out as vigorously when I’m eating lower calories on the strict phase but I do not want to get out my new good habit.   When […]

Sticking With It

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

I’m still exercising and eating low carb. This Saturday makes 10 weeks (or is it 11?) of consistent exercise. I feel great although I’m not sure that the results are that visible. My belly and arm flab is tenacious! I’ve been doing Walk Away The Pounds as well as Jillian’s 30 Day Shred. Level 2 […]
