Long Time W/No Blogging = Weight Gain

I can’t believe it’s been almost 3 months since I’ve blogged! But I’ve been a busy girl!!

Here is a quick re-cap of my past 3 months!!

  • I got a promotion at work.
  • Kyle and I are still training for the 1/2 marathon in October.
  • Spent lots of time w/friends & family over the summer.
  • Worked a lot!
  • Gained 12 lbs! Yikes!!
  • I turned 25!!!
  • Iowa Hawkeye football season started about 3 weeks ago!  (we have season tickets!!)
  • Two of my closest friends at work left. :(
  • Worked some more…are you seeing a trend here!! In August I worked over 70 hours/week!

Enough of that! All that matters now is that I’m back and ready to kick these lb’s I gained!! Not really liking these tight size 10’s!!

Since I’ve been working so much I haven’t been to WW since July. But I hope to go back next week. I hope they haven’t kicked me out…I don’t think you can get kicked out when you’re a lifetime member…or I hope so anyway!!

Today is Day 1 (again) for me!

Yesterday Kyle and I stocked up at the grocery store on all kinds of good, healthy food! Feels good to have a nicely stocked fridge!! Oh and we also did a long run, our longest yet training for the 1/2 marathon…10 miles!! Wow, it was pretty hard, but I had such an accomplished feeling when we got done!

I started my day out this morning just like I did so many mornings this last winter and spring! Oatmeal with blueberries and a sliced apple for a total of 4 points! It was wonderful!! I felt so satisfied! But did forget to snap a picture! I so want to get back into that habit, I know it was a huge part of my success in losing weight!

I couldn’t wait for my morning snack! I haven’t had my “morning mush” in a LONG time! I did the same combo of yogurt, 1/4 c grape nuts, and 1 1/2 c strawberries for a total of 3 delicious points!!DSC04530


I had a late lunch today, but it was worth it because Kyle happened to be home when I got there! I made a chicken salad sandwich w/cheese, had 1/2c cottage cheese, some carrot chips, and 1 c grapes for a total of 7 points.

Look what happens everyday after I leave my house from lunch…my cute little puppy jumps up in her chair and watches me drive away!! So cute!!



Work dragged on so much today! But 5 o’clock finally came around and I jetted out of there right away! Kyle was working late so when I got home I got right to work cleaning, organizing, doing laundry, etc!! Feels so good to get some of that stuff done. And I re-organized my closet…I need to take a picture, ‘cause it looks awesome!!

It was raining all evening and was dark by the time Kyle got home so we didn’t get a run in today, but I welcomed a day of rest. After running 10 miles on Sunday my legs and hips muscles are SUPER sore!!

Since I was a cleaning/organizing fool I didn’t get supper made. So it was easy food! Kyle and I both had cold cereal! I had 3/4 c honey nut cheerios and a small sliced banana for 4 points. I love this combo!!


Well my first day “back on the wagon” was great! Hoping to see that # on the scale go down!! Looking forward to doing some catch up on everyone’s blog and see how ya’ll are doing!! :)


POINTS = 18/22
WATER = 70 oz
EXERCISE = none…does cleaning count?!?!

OMG DARCI welcome back! Oh how I have missed you....I actually would go to your other blog just to get my fix :-) I'll admit it! LOL!

I ran a 10k two weeks ago and am running another one next Friday, and then its on to training for a half marathon in May...I can't believe it!

Anyways welcome back and look forward to some great posts.

Oh and if anyone can kick 12 lbs to the curb it's definately you! Don't be too hard on yourself, looks like you've been crazy busy!

Weight loss maintenance is a lifelong battle. It's inevitable that you'll have ups and downs. Good for you for starting fresh again!

Congrats on the promotion! :D
