Sometimes life hits you with the "irony" pillow......

Thursday, April 25, 2013

I have found that lately with my stress level climbing again I've been walking more to help. I started out walking around the block(which is 1 mile)..to now walking the block 3-4 times a day just to relieve stress and think about things. I'm faced with a few challenges in my life which will cause major changes ...a move to another state, a possible new job and the thought of leaving a new relationship which has been going great so far....That's the irony of my life. :( So I walk and walk and walk....and somedays it works and somedays it doesnt but atleast I'm exercising and not consoling myself with junk food(not that I've done that in awhile but just saying).
I've lost over 75 lbs now and walking has played a big part in this .....so its a good thing :)

  


I'm dealing with STRESS better

Monday, January 21, 2013

Right now I'm going through a very difficult time and my stress level is through the roof. I have to make some serious decisions that are going to change my life. I feel like my back is against the wall and all I can do is come out swinging.
Seven months ago I'd reach for something to comfort me--a comfort food=junk food....but I dont want that now. I've stayed my course and ate what I needed to and walked by the vending machines. Exercise has been my comfort. :)

    Exercise is a much healthier pre occupation...and it does relieve stress. Time and action generally takes care of everything else.

    I hope things settle down for you soon. Are the changes you talk about good ones (in the long term?).

Good for you on opting for exercise. The great thing about exercise is that it does help to shift emotions, and this can last for some time (whereas snacks give a very brief relief before they drag you down).

Made it through the holidays!

Monday, January 07, 2013

Whew...I made it through visitors, family, decorating, running around the stores, wrapping till the wee hours of the night,,,and the food that was brought into the "house" for the guests. I couldnt say dont buy that- just because I'm trying to lose weight doesnt mean everyone else has to suffer.....so I just took action to make sure I wasnt tempted! I stocked up on snacks that I knew I could eat...and occasionally hid out when the heavy duty sweets came out.....lol. I am happy to say that I did good( pat on the back) I got through it and lost 2 lbs! Couldnt have done it without SP........ emoticon emoticon

Thanksgiving 2012

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Had a nice relaxing Thanksgiving..we went to my aunts house and there was just the 4 of us there so very quiet. I knew what I was going to eat and not eat before I went-so I planned ahead.
I baked sugar free chocolate muffins so myself and my father(who is diabetic) would have something to snack on when pie and icecream came out. My dad decided to have pie and a muffin...shrug. I planned to have a small amount of my mom's stuffing--its a family recipe that is amazing! I knew I'd want some so I let myself have alittle bit...besides turkey and alot of veggies.
I'm happy to say that I lost 3 lbs this week! Very happy I made it through Thanksgiving and still lost weight. I hit 40 lbs lost on Sparkpeople. :)

  


Yesterday I told 7 people about Sparkpeople!

Wednesday, October 17, 2012

My boss noticed that I have lost some weight and she started the flood of people that day to ask me "what are you doing?" I was more than happy to write the information down and pass it on. I can't help but brag on Sparkpeople.com to anyone who asks!
I think this site is awesome! I'm so happy that I found it. It's already changed my life for the better and I know I'll reach my goal eventually. :)
