Fat-Free Friday

Grumble grumble grumble.

This week did not start off well. I made the grave mistake of inviting a bag of dill pickle chips and a bucket of Helluva Good Dip into my house.

It was gone in two days.

Yeah…..not a good two days. I guess I should just be happy that I maintained my weight this week and didn’t gain anything?

In other news…

I’m going to pull a “Captain Obvious” here and state that I have been somewhat MIA from the blogging world. Sure, I’m still reading my favourite blogs (see list to the right), but as for finding inspiration to share my OWN thoughts? It’s not happening. Not at all. And I know why.

Winter. It sucks the ever-loving life out of me.

And I don’t even dislike this season! I actually quite enjoy living somewhere with such a wide variance in weather, and I love snow, but still…winter is HARD. I swear to G that our ancestors must have hibernated during the colder months. That’s the only way I can explain my almost-impossible-to-resist urge to do nothing but lie on the couch in my warm pajamas and nap.

So, in other words…I have no motivation to do anything. No motivation to put away Christmas decorations (yup, they are still up), no motivation to clean, to blog...heck, showering is a chore these days (but rest assured, I do it!).

I AM still hitting the gym. As I’m back at work, my goal is now 4 days a week. I only work part-time, so I have less of an excuse to skip out. And I’m thinking of busting out my 30-Day Shred DVD just for some more variety. And I’m really trying to improve my eating….(again)….I blame winter for my constant desire to carb-load.

I want to get back to my goal weight (less than 3 pounds to go). Then I want to get back down to 153 (my lowest weight during this journey, before the vacation and Christmas threw me off track). And THEN maybe - just maybe – I’ll try to get to 148. Because I’d REALLY like to be able to say, “I’ve lost 50 pounds!”

Can you help me?

P.S. Don't forgot to take my poll...or leave a comment!


  1. Bleh...
    I haven't been into posting on blog lately either. Working out? I took about two months off at the end of 2012 because we just kept getting sick and now I started again 2 weeks ago. What did I do? I hurt my left knee so I have to take it easy &^#@$^*!

    I think we should just starve together and go from there.... NOT. I know you can do it again. Me, I've been stuck for far too long and seeing my pooch just doesn't inspire me cause I know it will be there even if I lose 20lbs, joy of twin pregnancy. Anyway, I'll be reading your progress so don't give up!

  2. Winter is sucking the life out of me too. I am ready for more sunshine!

  3. I'm also struggling for inspiration for my you may (or may not) have noticed. Winter sucks. Congrats on keeping up with the gym during the return to work!
