It's been a while! :/

Sunday, May 05, 2013

I'm embarrassed, but I'm not going to let that stop me. I haven't been on here for a while and I am over 170 lbs again. I miss the support and I miss the interactions. I hope everyone is doing well.

I've been having some crazy stuff happening in my life... and I'm trying to deal with it as well as care about myself in every aspect.

Let's give ourselves the gift of health.
Love to you all.

    I'm glad you came back. The support I get from Spark People is incredible and one team I'm on has had great advice that has kept me from injuring myself (running). You can get your weight back down, I know it. emoticon

    Glad that you are back. Today is my first day back in over a year. I really related to your post because I too am going through some stressful things in my life. Thanks for the positive challenge "Lets give ourselves the gift of health". You can achieve your goals. I am here if you need support. emoticon

Turkey, stuffing and pie, oh my!

Friday, November 25, 2011

So this year, we have three Thanksgiving dinners to attend. We already went to two last night. Thankfully my husband is also on a health kick and we were both able to eat dinner at one place and then eat a little bit of dessert at the 2nd place. But wow... we did over eat just a tad but the meal was pretty balanced and everything on our plates was pretty healthy. I guess it didn't help that we only ate oatmeal and coffee for breakfast and nothing else until about 5pm.

We're visiting our families in LA and when we're in LA, our eating schedule is off, and we just eat when we get a chance... not a good thing. But we're being as good as we can be :)

Tomorrow we're having a Thanksgiving meal with my husband's family, we're doing it a few days later, just to space it out. I'm sure we won't over eat this time, because we'll have access to snacks all day until then.

But all in all, it hasn't been as bad as I pictured it to be... we can still have a healthy and balanced Thanksgiving!

Stay strong!

    You did well. I think as long as you get back on track soon, not too much damage done. Then you are going to others home to celebrate. Make sure you have breakfast & lunch before attending the party to keep the snacking to a minimum.

God bless & enjoy everyday!

    Great job! Multiple dinners are so difficult especially with all of the favorites high calories items, yikes!

It's all up to me

Tuesday, October 11, 2011

I'm a big fan of The Biggest Loser and it hits me again and again while watching it, but I'm finally realizing what it all comes down to. We're all our own decision makers. It's up to me whether I want to "sneak" a doughnut when nobody's looking...even though I think that nobody is watching me... it really isn't okay and I'm just cheating myself.

I'm the person who decides to get her butt up and moving. I'm the one that is the ultimate decision maker on what goes into my mouth. Sure I'd like to get mad at people for bringing fattening treats to the office, because I want to blame someone for the guilt that I feel, but what it all it comes down to is me, my attitude and my strength.

It's hard to realize this and accept it because sometimes it's easier to be in denial about not caring about your own body and health, but ultimately, we have to learn to love ourselves in order to be healthier and to gift our body and mind with the nurture, respect and love that it deserves.

I'm alive ;)

Here I am on this constant weight loss journey, sometimes losing myself and sometimes getting back on the path.

I recently purchase a groupon for bikram yoga for two months, unlimited. With my schedule, I could go three times a week. So far, I've gone twice and I love it. Besides the room being stinky, it's a great work out.

I haven't gone to the gym in a while though, and I miss running, so I'll start going again in the mornings soon.

We can do this everyone!

Stay strong,

    Thanks Jocelyn! I have started chewing gum during my work outs and it does help a lot! Haha, the other day though... gum couldn't help me with the fact that the guy next to me on the treadmill totally ripped one... but eh, I guess he was really giving it his all, I guess, and I was pretty much done at that point ;)

Thanks for the comment! :)

    Sometimes I noticed that if I chew minty gum then stinkiness at hte gym (or emanating from the PERSON next to me) isn't so bad. I hope that helps!

Sounds like fun! You'll definitely get some flexibility and strength out of it. :D (The yoga), and the running will help ya, too, I'm sure!

Welcome back to SparkPeople!
Lots of love,

Little by little

Friday, January 28, 2011

I'm usually a very patient person, but when it comes to seeing results, I want to see them right away. I've been able to come to terms (sort of) that they don't happen right away, and I'm trying to keep strong. So far so good. I'm SO looking forward to that halfway mark of being down 30 pounds since Starting to lose weight, when I was at my highest. It's been a few years of yo-yo weight loss and gain, but I need to get control of this thing.

I'm going to be 32 this year, and I want to make sure that I can be as healthy as I can be before hitting the big 4-0. It's still a ways away, but it's always better to prevent and start as early as possible, so that it's not so difficult later.

Stay strong everyone and may you be healthy!
