#GoTheDist 2017: January Chapter

After some family events, I knew January was going to be more of a struggle but I was determined. Even if hitting January 2016 wasn’t possible I wanted to at least hit January 2015 and, ideally, 300K steps. Mission Accomplished! January totals: 301,270 steps 127.16 miles walked 53.01 miles biked I came just shy, 428… Read More »

One in a million: #GoTheDist 2016 Q1

or more precisely, one in 1,008,946. Yes, I hit more than one million steps in Q1 2016. For comparison, I hit 927,589 in Q1 2015. Nope, Leap Day didn’t do all that. An insane March did – even more insane than last year‘s. March 2016 totals 394,098 steps 161.93 miles walked 67.51 miles biked I… Read More »

#GoTheDist: February 2016

Much like I had a mega day in January 2016 and February 2015, I had one in February 2016. A 30K day, to be exact. That helped me counter a few lower days and one 1500 step day (sick day). Thanks to that day, February went gangbusters. February 2016 totals: 313,153 steps 128.84 miles walked… Read More »

January in steps, miles and pages

So there must be something about an end of month rush. Last year at the end of February I did a mad dash of exploring NYC and yesterday? More of the same.  I needed 14K for my stretch goal and came home with 16K January, you were amazing. 301,695 steps 124.2 miles walked 85.14 miles… Read More »

#GoTheDist and DietBet: miniupdate

so after (over)thinking about it, I decided to join a DietBet. While they didn’t work perfectly for me, they were a good jump start and that’s what I’d like about now. I also think I’m in a better frame of mind for it then I was when I took a break last year. As an… Read More »

Weight Watchers vs. Calories

an interesting post, via @LoseIt. While it’s an interesting explanation of what the pro version of LoseIt offers (which the site itself doesn’t explain as clearly) it’s also a very solid look at the reasons I started to struggle with Weight Watchers despite my initial success with the program. I had fallen out of love… Read More »

DietBet: WI 2

WIs for Diet Bet 2 and 3 also known as “I don’t see it in the mirror daily but I definitely see it in the photo.” This also has to be the first time where the first place the weight (or lack thereof) has shown in my face before anywhere else. I haven’t officially won… Read More »

Weigh In: February 17

Weekly Loss: 1.8 lbs Total Loss: 10.6 lbs Ahh the early stage “honeymoon”. I know I won’t lose 10lbs in 3 weeks going forward so I’m definitely going to enjoy it.  I’d love if I could consistently lose almost 2 lbs/week. This week was a bit odd. I’m sick again and haven’t felt hungry. I… Read More »

Weigh In: February 10

– I had a really good post, and then FireFox ate it I was going to say I stole this format from Jess, but I won’t put my weight on the internet (despite, you know, the fact that I did before) so I’ve modified it. Weekly Loss: 3.0 lbs Total Loss: 8.8 lbs I’m a… Read More »

Days

11 days back OP 11 days tracking 10 days ( 8 work days) without m & ms although I badly wanted some when I was still at work at 9p yesterday and I had no Cheerios or snacks. Yep, this is all day by day. It’s Week 2 so I don’t have the w1 losses,… Read More »

eating out, weekends and sick, oh my

As I mentioned, eating out is a stressor for me. Has been since 2010 and honestly, probably always will be. I didn’t bail on lunch Friday because I needed to get out. I used a strategy that a couple of friends mentioned and I’ve used in the past – pre plan. Well, sort of. I… Read More »

GTD 2013: Q1

It took a lot of editing and re-editing not to call it “Q1 down the drain”, but I know Robby would brain me if I did that. I went off track with #GoTheDist last year when the weather got better. I naturally switched to walking home more which hurt my GTD goal (750 miles on… Read More »

Accountability

that’s the new name of my game. I have maintaining down to a science. This year, I’m going to get the rest of my way to goal. Here are some small and big picture things I’m doing to achieve this accountability: Blog. Yeah, we’ll see how that goes. But when I was losing, I was… Read More »
