okay, so i have not blogged since february - and that was probably the last time I even logged onto spark! Horrible, huh?? But, on a good note - though I was not sparking, I was continuing with my healthy habits. I have lost more weight - I actually finally after 7 years broke the 150 mark!!!!!!!!! It was only to 149, but still, I was ecstatic! I think that I gained a pound or two back, but am scared to check - hee hee
I have not gone to the gym, I did not renew my membership, but I still walk/jog or elliptical at least 4-5 times per week. I am eating fairly well, but certainly not as good as I did when I used the tracker.
Feeling a slump right now with the weather - I just want warm weather to get here! I get sooooo bored when it is crappy out and there is nothing to do other than housework, it makes me want to eat. This is the 3rd weekend I am climbing the wallls with boredom - I am gonna be in trouble if I don't get a handle on it! hee hee But on the flip side, my house is really clean at the end of it all! :)
I hope that everyone is well and successful in their journey - I am going to try to be better at checking in here! But I am supposed to be online finding the firing order for my husband's truck spark plugs right now, so I had better get to it! Love to ya all!!!

So, I am REALLY trying to get my 8+ water in a day. I am on a new med for my blood pressure with a diuretic in it...........I HAVE TO PEE ALL THE TIME!!! It is seriously driving me crazy! Thank goodness I don't work alone, cuz I have to leave like every 15-20 minutes to go to the bathroom. It makes me not want to drink, but I know that I have to. It is soooooooo frustrating.
On a less whiny note, I am really doing pretty well with the exercise. It is rainy and dreary today, which makes me sluggish, but I went to the gym anyway. I am really trying to pick up the pace on the treadmill, as I see so many people that are jogging/running and I want to get there! I did 4.2 mph today, which is probably the last step before I need to jog. I could only handle it for like 3 minutes though. I will get there though!!!!

I did not just step off the train this past weekend - I took a flying leap!!!!! hee hee In this time of economic struggles, I am really trying to pare down the grocery bill - difficult to do while trying to feed three men! But, they all take lunches every day, and the snack foods can be costly. SO, i brilliantly decided that I would try to bake something each week for lunches. I made frosted sugar cookies on Sunday morning. PROBLEM - when I buys snacks I buy stuff that they like and I do not, and so I do not ever feel inclined to eat it. I unfortunately LOVE sugar cookies, and ate seven yesterday. Yes my friends, I said SEVEN. My husband was waiting for me to go into a diabetic coma by the end of the night. I just could not seem to control myself - I was driven my this horrid sugar need, like some sort of addict. I did no exercise either - awful!!!!! But I woke up this morning renewed, resisted the urge to bring cookies to work.
Okay, there was my confession. I am now returned to the straight and narrow.

Holy cow, what a rough week at work!! I have gone home absolutely wiped out all week - any logging or blogging has been done at work, cuz by the end of the day when I get home I don't even want to THINK about a computer!
Have not hit the gym yet today, I am supposed to go later with Sky and don't think that I feel like going twice today. Don't even really feel like going once. I will go in the morning with him too. I just have really had to force myself to exercise this week - I absolutely do NOT feel like doing it! My Dr. swtiched my blood pressure med - it was still high, so he gave me one with a diuretic - would that make me feel so drained and tired all the time? HEY! And shouldn't I lose weight on a diuretic???????? Cuz I'm NOT! hee hee, if you could see me, that thought occurred to me and I suddenly sat up straight with the revelation and stomped my foot on the floor when I wrote that I am NOT losing weight! hee hee, like a little kid.
I think that I am going to take the weekend off and not watch my food intake so much. Maybe cheat and do some baking or something. I won't go crazy, but I think that if I let myself go for a day or two I can perhaps rejuvenate myself for next week. Okay, maybe not, but a weekend off of the healthy train still sounds good! hee hee

I am the first in line to applaud winter each year, but now that it is February, some temps above 10 would really be nice! I cannot seem to get warm, I am perpetually chilled to the bone! And maybe it is this ongoing frigid weather, or the hours and hours a day spent staring at a computer screen, but I am just totally tired and drained. I forced myself to go to the gym today, but did not do much - walked at a kinda brisk pace for 20 minutes and did aoubt 1/2 my normal strength time, with reduced weight. Maybe I am coming down with something. Maybe I am just plain lazy! Whatever my issue, I would like it to STOP! hee hee
