Wow, I was just looking at my Spark Page and saw that it has been almost 2 years since a joined Spark People! Got me thinking about how much I have changed in that time. Not that I have been here consistly over that whole two years, but it has still changed me. When I first joined, I was almost 200 lbs and had never done anything online such posting. Now, I am just under 160lbs and I can barely go a few days without longing and checking up with my friends. I used to eat very unhealthy and in huge portions. Now I try to eat healthier and in normal sizes. I also started eating more fruits and veggies. I also starting moving again, and realized how much I stopped moving over the years. I think one of the biggest changes was I stopped drinking soda whenever I was thirsty, Now I reach for water instead of soda. All the changes I've made because this site, have made me feel better about myself, not only the way I look, but in the way I think of myself. I still have a ways to go to reach my goals, but with the help of all my friends here, I know that I can do it!
Thanks to everyone!

I had a really busy week this past week with things coming at me from all directions (which for the first time in awhile lend to me going why over my calories by eating what was easy).
This week also brought a lot of mixed emotions. Two SP friends and another friend announced they are pregnant. While I am really happy for them, It makes me sad, why can't that be me. And my friend who was due a week before I would have been due, had her baby this week, 6 weeks early. The baby is fine. It's hard. I realize how much my miscarriage still hurts. We tried for so long, finally got pregnant and then it was taking away. I am truely happy for everyone but I have realized that I still have a lot of emotions to deal with.
Well thanks for listening (or reading as the case may be). Hope everyone is well.

Well once again, it's been awhile since I have updated my blog. I have doing good about exercising and eating within my range. I joined the Spring 5% Challenge, which has given me new focus. I like the different challenges. The first challenge was crunches, with I never do, but now I have done 25 every morning this week. Now the challenge is drinking water, so I have increased my water every day since the challenge started.
Work has been so busy and my co workers are driving me crazy. I have been trying to find the positive in it but it is hard. So I read on a friend's blog about keeping a positive journal. Basically, everyday you record at least one positive thing from the day. So I am going to try keeping a positive journal to see if i can pull myself out of the funk that I have been in.
So hopefully I can turn things around, keep up the crunches, and keep drinking water!!

I was just updating my page and realized I haven't updated my blog in a couple of weeks.
I had computer issues, internet issues, and a couple feet of snow since I last posted anything.
I finally got back into the swing of things as far working out, but I have really let my eating habits slip the past couple of weeks. So as this week draws to a close, I am not going to focus on the things that I did wrong. Rather, I am going to focus on what I can do better. Next week, I am going to make a meal plan and stick to it (hopefully it doesn't snow ago, cause being stuck at home with little to do leaves me eating to fight the boredom). I am going to complete 4 workout sessions on EA Active and get the dog out every day (he'll be happy with that).
I also made some decision about the future this week. I am going to get off my butt and finally complete my application for grad school. Stop trying to be perfect and just see what happens. If don't get in, I can always try some place different or take some undergrad courses to help me get in. If I do get in and then finally get pregnant, I can always take a leave and come back to it. There is nothing to loss accept the master degree I need to get the job I want.
Time to pick myself up and get things together. Eat right, get moving, and get the wheels moving to get out of the job I really don't like anymore.
Have a great weekend!!
