Summer to-do list update | Week 3 Update (July 3)

Here’s my update as of today, Thursday July 3. I’m not pleased with my progress. Seems clear in reading these which areas I excel at procrastination!


Lose at least 10 lbs. My real goal is 18 but at the very least I want to fit into a particular suit and dress, and I know 2 lbs a week every week is not going to happen.

CONTINUE TO STRUGGLE. NOW YOU KNOW WHY IT’S #1 | I haven’t lost any weight, as far as I can tell. I’m doing alright with keeping my food intake at a good level, and not drinking as much alcohol. BUT I still have not gotten into the gym (see below). I know, I know.

Sell the pile of Liam’s clothes that have been sitting in my office for months.

DONE!! | I spent many hours this afternoon sorting, photographing, and listing the stuff. Craigslist and eBay are my friends.  Some of the stuff I decided to just donate to charity (which is what I usually do). I decided I will keep the listings up for two weeks and whatever doesn’t sell is going to friends or charity. Enough is enough. Continue reading

Summer to-do list update | Week 2 Update (June 25)

I’m going to update this weekly to help keep myself on track. Knowing I have to report back is helping me knock this stuff off the list. This is as of Thursday June 25. Yes, I know it’s already the following Monday…but I got a little distracted and forgot to post this.


Lose at least 10 lbs. My real goal is 18 but at the very least I want to fit into a particular suit and dress, and I know 2 lbs a week every week is not going to happen.

UMMM… | Have to say I failed this one, 100%. My weekend away with Hy was filled with copious amounts of alcohol and food. Not low-cal. Didn’t even get my trainers out of my suitcase.  And I have another weekend away coming up.

Now, to be fair – I did really well with food since I came back. And alcohol only the one date night.

Not yet. Continue reading

Summer to-do list update | Week 1 Update (June 18)

I’m going to update this weekly to help keep myself on track. Knowing I have to report back is helping me knock this stuff off the list. This is as of Thursday June 18.


Lose at least 10 lbs. My real goal is 18 but at the very least I want to fit into a particular suit and dress, and I know 2 lbs a week every week is not going to happen.

UMMM… | This one is going to be hard. The most difficult out of all of these to-do’s, actually. I did really well during the week last week for breakfasts and lunches, and didn’t have any alcohol. But this week I haven’t had Liam and have been out the last three nights. I’ve mostly made better food choices and not much to drink…so it’s getting there.

But ultimately the path is food and exercise. So with a total gym fail and no bike yet, I can’t really claim any progress. Continue reading
