daily struggles

Wednesday, March 04, 2009

well today is wednesday, over the hump day. i would like to think i may be over the hump but i find lately each day is a struggle. snacks at work make me have to really hold back and somedays that is impossible. the urge is so strong somedays i have to litterally stop myself and step back. i hope this too shall pass. i've come to far to slide back over nothing. each day is a new beginning for me and i will not dissapoint myself. i can do this and i will do this one minute, day, and week at a time. i have strength from within and i have help from without. my husband has noticed a change in me, my coworker and great spark buddy cat is my rock, and i am my own best cheering section. so to all you oatmeal cookies, potato chips, chocolate cherries, and such i say to hell with you and step back. i'm here to win this battle of the bulge and my new lifestyle is here to stay. it is my shield from temptation and i will come out ahead in the end. so till nexr time keep sparking guys.

new week, new beginning

Monday, March 02, 2009

i have beaten myself up over having eaten off the beaten path yesterday for the last time. today i'm commiting to weighing my food, and getting my water and just getting back on track. i kicked myself all evening and you know what? it didn't change a thing, i'm still here and the combos are still in me so i just have to move on. i will get in my workouts today and no more punishing myself. that is my goal for this day. i can't say about tomorrow as i take this one minute, one day, and one week at a time. so till tomorrow keep sparking folks

  


snowing in alabama!!!

Sunday, March 01, 2009

my dear hubby woke me up at 5:30 this wonderful sunday morning for me to see the snow falling in greenville alabama. may not seem like much to some but to us rednecks in the south this is a wonderful site. man how pretty. i will post a pic on my site as soon as the sun comes up as this won't last very long. never does in the south. only have seen it snow one other time since we moved here about 13 years ago. i'm from vermont and i must say in reality i don't miss all that cold and snow and short seasons, except for winter that is, i do love the warmth. oh well on to my day. today is a new day and i need to work on somethings. so till next time keep sparking

happy saturday

Saturday, February 28, 2009

i made it through friday with little or no trouble. now saturday...i have to work this morning so that is always helpful. i tend to not get bored (my trouble for over eating) and keep to my schedule. i've already got in some cardio and am off to a wonderful start. had a good breakfast, and packed a good lunch. the rest is up to me. as i gained last week i have to get back on the wagon. since i know this is one minute, day, and week at a time i'm ready for any challenges that may or may not come up (yeah right). so till next time keep sparking

  


accountability day.....mine

Friday, February 27, 2009

well it finally happened the dreaded gain....1.8lbs to be exact. that puts me back at 7.8lb loss. nothing to sneeze at but still not what i wanted to see. of course this moment had to come. i went on vacation and looking back i know i didn't get my water in, exercise? yes i walked but not like at home, and i only did yoga one day. so i'm my own worse enemy. not one person forced me not to drink my water, or not to get in my exercise, or forced me to eat that pizza. i did all this on my own. so as i have seen on this message board on more than one occasion, i'm going to get up dust off my a** and get moving forward to next week. this is just a ripple in my calm lake and sometimes you will have that. so till next time keep sparking. i will be.
