I've been lazy

Monday, March 29, 2010

I admit, I have no one to blame for the backslide but myself. I was at my weight and fitness goal for about a year, and then got complacent, or lazy, or both. I ate more and moved less. Not rocket science. So, as a result, I'm back up to 148 and feel out of shape. Can't do the hikes and long walks I used to do without effort. Time to get back to where I felt my best. I'm starting over with renewed commitment!

  Good luck :) I dont even have enough self-control to make myself go walk the dog. I hate being lazy and fat... but no will enough to do anything about it, apparently.

Scale has stalled, but I'm healthier

Friday, August 29, 2008

I haven't lost a single pound in another 6 months, but I haven't gained any either, and more importantly, my body is firmer and more toned. I don't have the "batwings" on my arms and I can run or ride bike for miles. I have not had a single day of abdominal pain, either. Increasing fiber, water, and protein in my diet has definitely made me feel differently.

My personal challenges continue, and will face divorce soon, but I can say that I'm blessed with good health and no one can take that away from me!


Almost there

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

I've been "sparking it" since September, so now at the 6 month mark I can look back and reflect that and it has been crucial to maintaining my health and my sanity. My personal life is in an uproar, but my body has not suffered because of the daily visits here to motivate and constantly remind me that making an effort with diet and fitness is the best way to love myself. Even after 6 months, I keep finding new things to learn and try here. Recipes, exercises, and nutritional exchanges. I feel great! Only 3 pounds to go, but I'm not focused on the scale too much. I just love feeling good about eating right.
