Update: Quick, Dirty and Down 5 More Pounds!

Sunday, October 27, 2013
This week, more solid effort was given. I stayed within caloric limits, met my distance goals (bike 15mi. / walk+jog 10mi.), and it's all starting to feel more like... normal? 

So, yeah... I am 214 pounds! I can feel my clothes fitting a little looser. My belly, BERTHA, is feeling less bloated. And my double chin, CANDY, is subtly receding. I have pep in my step (or maybe that's just the limp - from all these workouts). Meh. 

Well, I do hope to do so much more with this blog. I apologize for the once-per-week updates. I'll soon have more time to devote to it, once some things are settled regarding my schedule. But, in the meantime... make it a great week!

Gordon Biersch's Veggie Pizza - Wednesday's Lunch
Carrots & Ranch Dip - Monday's Mid-day Snack
Turkey Sausage, Eggs, Spinach, Cheddar Ciabatta - Wednesday's Breakfast

  1. You rock!! Keep your head up and in the game,you're doing great Paula!

  2. The fact that you have named your belly "Bertha," is killing me LOLOLOLOL! Congrats on the loss so far, girly!

  3. I love that you have given names to your belly and chin. I should try that and see if it helps.
