It has been a while!

Saturday, September 10, 2011

It has been a long while since I have been on sparkpeople.com. A lot of stuff has happened in the last couple months.
I was diagnosised with Crohn's disease in March which was quite a shocker. At least I know what is wrong with me. I have been doing quite well, I am trying to watch what I eat. I have been getting into herbalife. I have been using aloe vera and florafiber pills to help cleanse my digestive system. I also use herbalife shakes, there are loaded with 22 vitamins and minerals. If you would like to know more information, contact me on here or at my e-mail address hmmeyers@svsu.edu.
I am working on my last 2 classes of my master's degree. I will be done with that in November. I am quite excited about it.
I am still working on my half marathon. I am not sure if I will get to it this year but I will defintely do it next year.
To top off everything since the last time I was on here, I am engaged. John proposed at the end of March. We plan on going to Vegas next September and getting hitched. I can't wait!

Have a great night everyone!

    Glad you're back. Looks like your life is getting on track on several levals. So glad you've found ways to deal with the Crohn's Disease.

HELP!

Thursday, February 17, 2011

I have realized that I have gained some weight, about 5 lbs. My pants are tight and I do not like it. I just don't have the motivation to eat healthy and keep an active work out plan. I am trying to train for a half marathon but I am lacking motivation. I love food apparently and have been stressed. I eat when I'm stressed, bored, depressed, any time I have a reason to eat, I eat. I just need some help to go back to healthy eating because I don't like the fact that my pants are tight. I don't look like I've gained that much weight but my stomach hangs over my pants now. I do not like. Any advice would be great!

    Wishes do not weight loss make...

My best tip for this is that anytime you are considering eating, take 5 minutes before you actually eat...during that time evaluate if "that donut" is going to help you get rid of your "muffin top"...

My other tip is to "earn" that snack...before eating it, take a walk, hit some stairs (if you are at work), do one of the 10 minute toner video...be creative! And you do this for ANYTHING you eat that is not one of your planned meals...

Peace & love!

    Think before you bite. Life is a challenge. You are a motivator. This weather makes it difficult to be active, but with thought you can find away to eat wisely and enjoy life.

    It's all in the mind-you have to be ready to make good choices. something has to be the kick in the pants to get you on the right path. For me, I've gotten just plain mad and refused to buy bigger clothes and so I was able to get on the wagon and make wise eating and exercise choices. Good luck

    I've been trying to break myself of this habit. The habit of telling myself I don't care if I lose or gain weight because I enjoy food too much. Because it makes me feel better. I let food control me. This is hard, really hard. But don't let yourself use the excuse that it's hard. Stop and think about it. REALLY think about it. Think about where you're going and where you might end up if you keep letting yourself do this. You will feel better about yourself if you're in control. I always do. I think the key is making yourself think about it and recognizing it's not a good thing instead of making excuses. Trust me, I do it too! Every day! Hopefully, we'll both get better with effort. =)

Snow day!

Wednesday, February 09, 2011

I woke up to no work today and no school. It makes me happy but with the amount of snow that we got, I will probably get stuck if I left my apartment. I don't do well just sitting inside not being able to do anything. I am going to get a lot of reading done for my classes. I hope everyone enjoys their hump day : )

  


Wow...

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

I haven't blogged in a long time, almost a month. I have been quite busy. I started school again and have less time than ever to do anything. I feel all I do is read a book. Which isn't too bad.

I started working on training for a half marathon. I am hoping to run it in the middle of April or towards the end. One of my co-workers is going to do it with me. I am quite excited about this because this was a goal that I set for myself last year but never made it.

Work is stressful as always. It is extremely stressful with the talk about the budget cuts in Texas. I am hoping that I don't loose my job because I am number 5 from the bottom. I am going to continue to say prayers and continue to look for jobs back in my home state, Michigan.

I hope everyone has a great week. I am going to try to stay warm, seeing it is -1 degrees with a windchill of -22 or something like that. It is just very cold!!

3 day weekend

Saturday, January 15, 2011

I have a 3 day weekend and my throat has been driving me crazy. I have a little cough and don't really feel too well. I feel like someone is trying to close off my throat.....so unfortunately no exercising for me until I feel better. I just want my body to get better faster than stress it out from exercising. I am going to relax a lot this weekend. I hope everyone enjoys theirs.
