How it's going

It has been a while since I posted and I thought I'd post an update on several things.  The new semester is starting, with all the busyness  that goes with it, so I may be posting a little less frequently for a while.

My weight is still up in the high 170s. I am working to cultivate mindfulness and be more aware of my choices.  I feel like the weight will take care of itself once I'm not eating for all those other reasons besides hunger. I am still tracking my food with LoseIt to help keep me aware, too.

I am still doing the You Are Your Own Gym workouts and just began Week 3. I think it's the perfect strength-training routine for a busy life. The last workout I did took 36 minutes. I'm also still running and walking and doing yoga. The biking and the swimming have slipped -- I want to figure out how to work them back in.

Sorry for the boring post, will be back soon with something more fun.


  1. Not boring at all! Was just thinking of sending a "hope you're okay" post today. Always look forward to your posts :)

  2. Good to hear from you! I figured with school starting back, you would be a bit busy. Glad to know that you are still doing the You are Your Own Gym thing. Can't wait to hear how it's going!

  3. Hi! This is the first time I've read your blog, and I wanted to comment on how healthy your mindset seems. The 'you are your own gym' workout looks good, I might have to give it a go!

  4. Hi. I just started reading this as well. It really seems like you have a healthy mindset, that is what I am really striving for in myself!!! Mindfulness always seems like a great approaach, eating and outside of it.
