What's a success story?
Monday, March 10, 2014      3 comments

You've seen them. They're everywhere. The newspapers, magazines, whole websites are dedicated to them - there's even a section here on SparkPeople only for success stories. They pretty much all follow the same pattern. Before and after picture... Read more
A TV is still better than no TV
Sunday, March 09, 2014      4 comments

Ever since I moved in my new apartment on February 1st I'd been TVless. I'd never been without a TV in my whole life. We always had a TV at home, actually, there was one in my parents' bedroom, one in the living and one in the other living ... Read more
Confidence, a daily must
Saturday, March 08, 2014      0 comments

Yesterday I took a walk. A nice brisk walk while the temperature was around -1 degree Celcius, which also means SPRING IS COMING. I don't like cold, I generally don't like Winter sports (though today the boyfriend and I discussed buying snowsh... Read more
What do I really wanna look like?

It's 8 AM and I'm still at home in PJs. Yesterday night I decided to treat myself to a sleeping in session with a different breakfast (aka getting up at 7 instead of 5:30 and eating a whole bagel with chocolate peanut butter, which wasn't as sat... Read more
Coping with gains
Thursday, March 06, 2014      1 comments

I step on the scale every Thursday morning and this morning I'd gained 1.6 pounds. UH?! With time I've learned to not give much credit to the scale. Even though I weigh in at the same time in the morning right after getting up (and peeing... Read more
I measured my yogurt. And adopted a cat.
Wednesday, March 05, 2014      6 comments

The two events have nothing to do together. First of all, yogurt. Yesterday night I packed my lunch for today and I measured the amount of greek yogurt I put in my bowl, plus the maple syrup. For the syrup I was right on with 1 teaspoon; I ... Read more
Tracking surprises
Tuesday, March 04, 2014      3 comments

I finally did it. After weeks of tracking procrastination, yesterday night I logged in and tracked my food for the day. First surprise: being over 1800 calories. (I was around 1950) BUT, everyday at lunch time I eat greek yogurt with... Read more
Of dedication

You've got it. Goals. Planification. Numbers. Stats. A calendar with your weigh-in days, your exercising days, your days off. Motivation. I'm in that case. But I think the thing I lack is dedication. I've had a lot of success, so far, ... Read more
Clues I should be counting calories again
Wednesday, February 26, 2014      5 comments

I said I'd do it. But I haven't started yet. Why? I have no freakin' idea. After all it was easy. It took me 30 minutes in the weekend to plan my whole week, and if I ever didn't respect the menu I'd planned (which very rarely happened), I'... Read more
Fit Test results: after 3 months of efforts...
Sunday, February 23, 2014      0 comments

I registered to a new gym at the end of November 2013. I hadn't been to a gym for almost a year, and outside of running in the Summer, I hadn't done anything exercise-wise for a long time. The first weeks went very well. I came back on SP a... Read more

So I got my fit test done yesterday and the results are awesome. I'll blog about them this weekend (don't have my report in hand right now. I'm being rebellious and blogging at job. Lol) As I mentioned in one of my previous blogs, I have ob... Read more
Slacking off is OVER
Tuesday, February 18, 2014      1 comments

Here's my new goal, starting yesterday. What? Weight loss. How many? Lose 12 pounds to reach my goal of 160 pounds. When? 3 pounds a month, to be done mid-June. Why? Because I want to be fit for the Summer and in a month it'll be too ... Read more
Fantastic disastrous weekend; with pics
Monday, February 17, 2014      3 comments

Fantastic fun-wise; disastrous health-wise. And the fun didn't come from the lack of healthy choices. Obviously not. (Well just a very little.) (Yes, I don't blog for weeks then blog twice a day. I'm a horrible person. LOL) So for Chris... Read more

I'm back on track, baby. Starting today, after a somewhat hectic weekend out in Montreal. (Pics coming in the next blog. That dress I wore to the orchestra was FABULOUS.) When I go to the gym in the morning I always prepare my bag the day... Read more
Flattening the hills
Monday, February 10, 2014      3 comments

It's been a little over a week since I moved in my new apartment and it's finally starting to get better. Well. Not that it was a disaster. One of the best moves of my life, to tell the truth. But moving is always stressful, and it didn't do m... Read more
