Well, I haven't been on here in awhile after doing so good for several days. I found myself incredibly busy at work which is where I do most of my internet use. And then I received some devastating news in my family and have been dealing with that as well. Because of all of this, I have had no motivation to workout..but also no motivation to eat. I have lost weight...but it is because I have barely been eating. Not healthy at all. I am sick to my stomach most of the time due to the stress of what's going on in my life and I often have to force myself to eat because I feel weak.'s twisted though because I'm enjoying the way my clothes are fitting.

I am slower at work this week so I'm going to try to get on here more and look around for motivation and hopefully some positive energy. I need that in my life right now from any source I can get it!!!

  I'm sorry for the difficult time you're going through.. I agree with Wilson with taking walks and such. I recently went through some tough times and I'm finding solace in hiking - it's so nice to just get away from everything for a while and just focus on the small things like the flowers on the trail or even just the next step. I also lurk on the motivational pages.. it helps. I hope things get better for you soon.

    I know what you must be going through -- see my SparkPage. I know it's hard, but just try to get out and walk - preferably a park or someplace scenic, but anywhere to help take your mind off things for a bit. I'm out of town right now, but I'll check back in with you when I get home. I'm also going to add you as one of my friends to make it easier to check in.

Take care and hang in there!

another bad day

Thursday, September 20, 2012

Yesterday turned out even worse than Tuesday did as far as my intake. I am paying for it today, by feeling sluggish and overall not well. My skin is also breaking out from the junk food...I'm starting my period this weekend so I'm craving it more and its making this so difficult for me!!! However, I am going to commend myself again for tracking 100% what I ate. That is a goal, and I have stuck to it for two whole days, and even though I don't like what I'm seeing from the results, it is helping to see the truth all laid out for me.

Every day is a new day and a new chance to work harder...going to try to make today a better day!!! That's all I can do.


Oh yeah!! I forgot, I tried a recipe from the Spark website last night too..I altered a little bit based on what I had, but I made quinoa with black beans, green & red peppers, and onions. SO YUMMM. Brought leftovers for lunch today..can't wait!!! So healthy and so tasty. Hehe..going to look for more recipes to try.

    Tracking the food is the biggest challenge. Once the "eye opener" hits, you start making changes. Then, when you've made some minor changes, you begin to see results. AND when you begin to see results, you become more motivated to even do better! Good luck!

    It will seem difficult in the beginning and you won't like what you see in the tracker, but remember, like you said, each day is a new day, and each day we have the chance to make it a great day! One day at a time is all you need, and before you know it, it will turn into good weeks and months, etc.
Keep tracking, learning where you are going wrong. Try more of the yummy spark recipes! If you are ready to add another baby step, make sure you are drinking enough water that you are hydrated! It's a huge thing when it comes to weight loss and one I struggle with daily!

So, I just finished entering everything I ate yesterday...I knew it was bad and thats why I stopped entering them. But I decided this morning that it would be a good idea to actually see the numbers and that maybe it would be an eye opener and a BIG motivation to me. worked!!!!!!!! I am speechless at what I ate yesterday how everything added up. Today will be a better day!!!!!!

blown away...

Tuesday, September 18, 2012

I have a long history of tracking calories in my life.. I use to do it daily for years. I was so accustom to it and I knew approximately the amount of calories that were in nearly everything, just by look.

Today, I am tracking my calories again for the first time in over two years. I am actually trying to eat better today than I have been and I am completely shocked at how many calories I have taken in at this point in the day! I am almost maxed out on my calorie goal for the day. I have lost all touch with the reality of how much I am eating each day.

I know that my body has adjusted to eating more calories so I am hungrier more often, so I have to be patient with myself, but I am struggling for motivation right now........ those pita chips and hummus are calling my name too. Sigh...

    Isn't it astonishing how easily we allow ourselves to add just a bit more...and more...and more, until the new normal stuns us once we wake to it?

One day, one moment, one bite and one step at a time, you can do this.

Just emoticon , because it is so very worth it.
