Last week was a hard week. I decided to join the 10 Minute Daily Exercise Challenge, and lemme tell ya, going from not exercising at all to exercising everyday WAS a challenge (again), but I stuck it out . At work, things were demanding, not to mention that the boss always brings us goodies to eat. He's an excellent cook. I had two pig-out days and five good-girl days, and all my hard work has paid off this week. I went from 144.8 pounds to 141.2 on todays weigh-in!!!! This is just the jump start that I needed to motivate myself again. Feeling great today. Now I just have to keep it up!
Best of luck Sparkers!

Here's the real low down. Again I have been seriously overeating, and it's pretty much all processed and fast food. I am pretty close to my starting weight on SP now, and am really uncomfortable in my skin once more. I know these feelings from before led to self hate. I don't want to get there again. Gotta to another nutrition overhaul. That will start today.

Here I am again, after being absent for 3 months. I have gained back a total of 13 pounds and I am unhappy with myself. The good thing is, at least I didn't gain it all back! I am now up to 143 pounds, and my goal weight was 130, which I hit a long time ago, but then things started spiraling out of control and here I am again setting weight loss goals. I know this is a lifelong journey and everyone trips up now and again, so I will not beat myself up over it.
New Goals for 2013:
Lose at least a half a pound each week till I feel I look great.
Fit back into my brand new clothes I bought when I made goal.
Buy a stationary bike for the family.
Exercise at least 40 minutes each day for 4 days every week.
There, that's it for now. Baby steps again!
Wish me luck, Sparkers!

Not even sure where to start. I haven't been as active on here as I had wanted to be for a long time.So many things have happened that I have kind of lost track, but here goes.
House foreclosed on, hadda move out. My whole family lives together, so Mom found us a place we thought would be great. Turns out, the place is awful. Tiny, smelly, lots of stuff in the place is either broken already or on the verge of falling apart. Our poor dogs barely have a yard, until we can afford to put up more fence for them. So, we looked at another place and were all happy with it :huge yard for the boys, big bedrooms, plenty of space, right across the street from my job and affordable, but then, when the real estate company called our current landlady, she said" oh, they are great tenants, really quiet and clean and always on time with the rent, but if they leave they will be breaking the lease".So, we did not get the place.Grrrr. I have been staying with my boyfriend because, since the accident, my family has no car, and I must be able to get to work.So, I stay with Josh to be close to work. I can walk from there or take my bike. My house is an hour bike ride from work, and that doesn't sound to pleasant to me. Being at Josh's is great, but I miss my family and my dogs. Poor Dad has to walk the crazy puppies to their yard on leash and when they get in the fence, we let them off leash, and they drag him like a ragdoll, as they have yet not learned to walk nicely on leash. That's our fault, too. Mom won't let me walk them anywhere out of fear that something will happen to them. She's very protective. The worst part about the whole arrangement is that I am paying the whole rent every week at my house, AND I DON'T EVEN LIVE THERE RIGHT NOW!!! Bahhhh, I don't even wanna talk about that situation anymore other than to say that I WANT OUT.
I did get a promotion at my job, I am now assistant store manager. The new manager we got is okay, he has his moments where he freaks out and yells at us , but I can take it for now. Spring Break is looming, and we are about to get crazy busy. He has no idea. Hee Hee, can't wait .
So, when we moved, I gave my elliptical trainer away to a friend. Hated the thing anyways. I have gained another 5 pounds since we moved , so now I am up to 140 lbs. YUCK. I haven't been working out to much at all lately, but that all changed today. Tomorrow is my 37th birthday and I am tired of being tired. I want a healthy life full of fun and happiness, and I am starting today, AGAIN. Today I took an bike ride and a long walk, and it felt great. Now I just have to get up in the mornings and do some strength training before work. Hmmm, wish me luck .
Sorry that this blog is so rambly, just wanted to let ya know I am still here and fighting!! Hope you all have a fantastic week and best wishes !!!!!
