Tired of feeling fat, and really tired of not really trying. I hurt all over most days, it's hard to get motivated.

I have sooo much to do and not enough energy to do it. Maybe my thyroid med needs to be adjusted...?


I wish I had a magic wand...LOL

    I just read an article about the slowest losers team!! It was really good & sounds like a nice motivator! We can't all have the 20yr old body in a bikini (if we ever did!) And to be honest I don't want to now. Just start small... and keep going! You can do it! without a ton of energy to start! Also it is a good idea to have your thyroid rechecked! But don't wait, just go for a 10 minute walk, or listen to a couple of your favorite UP BEAT songs & move to them!! It'll cheer you up & give you some increase in energy! Good luck & don't give up!

I've been MIA for a week while I vacationed with out-of-town friends. Okay, okay, she was only here for four days but I've been eating poorly for about a week and a half.

BOY, can my body feel it too! I feel sluggish, and tired all the time. Absolutely no energy. My DH feels it also. We're back on track and will start walking again.

Oh, and I DID walk alot on said vacation. We had a group of 14 of us going to Disneyland so I walked a LOT. My legs were killing me by the end of the 2 days. I think I'll get a scooter next year, my arthritis didn't like it one bit. :(

Now I have to lose the 5 lbs. I gained and get moving and motivated.

Have a great week Sparkers!!

God bless,


*WANTED* Missing weekend, if found please return

Monday, September 13, 2010

to me ASAP... :)

Don't know where this last weekend went, but I did spend the 9-11 anniversary praising God in my own way:

I've been wanting to do this for quite a while, and finally figured out how on one of my scrapbooking machines.

Been on a plateau that is my fault, and my fault only. Have not been exercising (hate it!) and been over my calories a few days lately. *sigh*

Time to get off my duff and get going!

Have a great day friends... emoticon


Out of control eating yesterday

Wednesday, July 21, 2010

Ate waaay too much calories yesterday but it was my birthday so who cares?! emoticon

I'm grateful for another healthy year, even though my eating hasn't always been. The pigging out was totally worth it, and I'm back on track today. That's what I love about this new lifestyle, I give myself at least one day a week to eat whatever I want and however much I want and I don't feel deprived. It's working, too!

We'll see how I look in another year, now that I'm finally beginning to question my food choices and actually think about everything I'm putting in my mouth on a daily basis.

If it wasn't for the support I find here at SP and the wonderful friends I've made, I don't know if I'd still be here and tracking all my food every day. The exercise part is really hard for me, I wish some of you lived closer to get me motivated in person! LOL emoticon

Thanks for listening and have a great week Spark Friends!!



Family Reunion

Monday, June 28, 2010

Had a great weekend! The family reunion I've been planning for a year for my DH's family was Saturday. We had almost 75 people show, and it was such a beautiful day! emoticon

My DH saw family members he hadn't seen in 15 or so years...My FIL cried when he saw his brothers and sisters again. What a momentous occasion and many memories were made. God blessed the day with enough sun and enough breeze that everyone was very comfortable.

And the FOOD! The family is Filipino / Mexican, you can imagine what I was eating! Saturday was my "free" day to eat whatever I wanted, and boy, did I eat! And get this....I still lost a pound! emoticon

I'm sorry it's over but thankful everyone showed up. To see my family together like that, it was overwhelming at times. I will put some pics on my SparkPage.

God is sooooo good! Spark on, friends.

    Hey Allyson! What a wonderful thing you did. I bet your husband wil never forget all the work and love you put into that day for him and his family, and of course, your family too.

I have never eaten Filipino foods, but Mexican...well, I can identify with that. And to lose a pound on top of it...well, you lucky woman you!
