Doing good!

Thursday, July 02, 2009

Ok-so I made my way through the rough first few days of eating "right" and I'm doing good. No more cravings as long as I keep my mind focused on my goal! I can do this.


Today is a great day!

Tuesday, June 30, 2009

So, I stuck it out yesterday and didn't eat 'badly' like I always want to. And, you know what? I didn't die of starvation or wither away from denying bad cravings. I feel great today. I just need to stick to eating healthy and get my butt in gear to a consistent workout schedule.

Life is good!


No more whining!

Ok...I'm resigning to no more whining about being overweight! It's time to shape up! I can do this! We can all do this!

Mind over matter.



Why is this so hard to get started??

Saturday, June 20, 2009


Why is it so hard to get started? I know how to eat and that I need to exercise. But, why do I start each day with the best intentions and by lunch time, bail on the plan "for today"? I know that I am able to lose. I've done it before. And, I remember struggling at times with eating decisions and making myself get to the gym, but it wasn't horrible. It was a new life that once I got into the habit, was easy to maintain.

These days, I focus so much on work during the day and on my daughter and husband at night that I am using everything as an excuse to not eat right or exercise. I hate feeling FAT. I need to get better at this. I know I can do it.

I know I can, I know I can, I know I can...


Stalling (UGH!)

Tuesday, October 09, 2007

So, I've been on this awesome journey, but I feel like I'm stalling in my progress. :-( Of course, I admit that I had some fries with lunch and there was that piece of cake at work. UGH! Just when I thought that I finally had control over my cravings, I started to give into them again. Bad, bad, bad. What was I thinking???

OK---SO THIS IS MY WAKE UP CALL! I know and accept that I cannot eat anything I want at any time I want. I know what works for me...eating 1500 calories a day that are mainly fruits and veggies, only eating when I'm hungry-not because food is available and working out at least 30 minutes each day.

So, back on track as of right now!

Just do it!
