Monday Motivation - Week One
April 26, 2021

Weight Loss Journey – Ki’s Progress The week before last was a total failure, so I repeated week one this past week.  Let’s just get that straight right off the bat.  I didn’t do well with my diet, I didn’t do well logging things, and I didn’t do well exercising.  So I decided to start over again.  This seems to be a pattern.  I think I’m going to stop doing…

My Progress – Week 1 Repeated This week, I repeated week 1 of my journey since I failed miserably last week.  If at first we don’t succeed, right?  I did a whole lot better this week, I know that before I even look at my goals. That said, I also know that there is still room for improvement. So let’s get right to it… Goal #1 – Diet – Since…

Monday Motivation – Post Pandemic – Week One

Weight Loss Journey – Ki’s Progress I started off this week doing really well… for like the first part of the first day.  I started Keto on Sunday and did pretty well with it.  At the end of the day I was tired so I went to lay down in bed and watch TV.  Then my bratty son came in and intentionally triggered cravings to convince me to take him…

Sunday Stats – Week 1 – Again

My Progress – Week 1 Goal #1 – Diet – Since I am starting fresh this week, I spent the day getting all of my tools updated with current dates and current goals.  I use a set of spreadsheets to track my progress.  I find that logging things this way helps keep me focused on my goals.  The days that I fail to log are the days that I also…

Monday Motivation – Post Pandemic – Week Zero

Weight Loss Journey – Ki’s Progress I started off the week doing really well!  I started Keto on Monday which was the hardest day.  That was when I wanted to go out to eat just “one more time”… again… for the fourth day in a row.  Just one soft drink.  Just one candy bar.  That kind of thing.  But I stayed strong and told myself no.  I got through the…

Monday Motivation – Fresh Start – Post Pandemic

Weight Loss Journey – Ki’s Progress Real talk… I’ve straight up been lazy.  The coronavirus has given us all a fantastic excuse to sit at home and be lazy, right?  In fact, it was March of 2020 when I started going hard again.  My son and I were totally motivated to go to the gym three times a week.  We had just gotten into that habit when the coronavirus struck…

Monday Motivation – A New Start… Again… For Ki

Weight Loss Journey – Ki’s Progress So… it’s been awhile.  It’s not that I haven’t been trying, I have.  It’s been a huge roller coaster ride for some time now.  It looks like I’m just short of a year since last time I visited this site and posted.  I’m sorry for that. Last year was super duper stressful for me.  My son needed an emergency surgery on his spine do…

Monday Motivation – Ki – 1/21/2019

Weight Loss Journey – Ki’s Progress I am still doing the whole Keto Diet thing.  I had decided in December to start the diet but it took me several attempts to get it right.  I’m now on week two of being in ketosis. I’m finding it quite a bit easier to do than the first few times I tried.  I just tend to overcomplicate things right at the very beginning…

Thoughtful Thursday – Pre-Diabetes Action Plan – Ki

The Dreaded Diagnosis The bad news came as expected.  As I mentioned in a few of my Sunday Stats posts, my lab tests for November showed that my glucose was at Pre-Diabetes level.  Now, this wasn’t a big shocker for me…it was actually quite expected.  There’s some history here. For one, diabetes runs in my family.  It’s one of those things that the super long medical questionnaires ask when you…

Trivial Tuesday – Unsolicited Advice

What’s Right for You? There are so many things about being on a diet that just suck. Changing the foods you eat. The period between the time you make the change and the used to it period when you are angry with the entire world. You know you want potatoes and pasta. Grumpy just happens. Teaching yourself to be active when you are very used to being sedentary. Working out!…
