Tue, 8 Jul 2014 13:19:43 EST Foiled Plans http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5731162 so no walk yesterday - too hot and I may have to skip again today but I am going to the gym tonight so it may not matter. Just hope it is not too humid there - ugh! Thu, 3 Jul 2014 09:05:58 EST Walking at work http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5729900 Been doing more walking at lunch instead of sitting playing with my phone in the lunch room. Only takes me 5-10 minutes to actually eat mt lunch - leaves me with 20 min that I can use to walk. I do not like sitting in there half the time anyway depending on the company. Why did I not think of this sooner???

There. I am done whining (for the moment). Just going to keep it up while at my desk and try to resist using the treamill at the gym tonight since that would most likey make it worse. I really have to get this fixed... but I know I will not. Doctor is a waste of time (and cost me $500.00 already for xrays last year that showed nothing and the doc never really calle me on them after they were done). So i just will have to deal and rest when it hurts! Mon, 2 Jun 2014 10:35:19 EST Morning! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5705853 That's it! Have a great day!

You go though the days fretting and stressing because you are doing everything you can (well. mostly) to change and it is not showing. what a difference when it really starts to show. Today my boss said to me "you pants bagging a little on you?" YES! I am almost down 8 from my {most recent} highest weight (not recorded on here but that is okay!) I am starting to really track. I had pizza last night but only 3 pices instead of eating half but I know i was having it so I ha...

Down a only a pound. Have not seen a change in a while so this small accomplishment is kind of huge!!! One pound is one pound! <em>30</em> Wed, 21 May 2014 08:38:27 EST Not as good... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5699065 So my Hubby went to a concert at the Mohegan Sun Sunday and before he left he stopped at Krispy Kreme for a few doughnuts. Today he brought them out and I had one. I think i is because it is a few days old but all I could taste is the oil. It was not enjoyable. I have not had a doughnut in a while and now I am good for a while.

Fri, 16 May 2014 16:18:44 EST Who Knew?? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5695489 I think (don't want to talk too fast here...) I might be making a dent finally. The scale has not dipped but is also is not going back up (as it usually does). Just have to stop killing what I do during the week once the weekend comes. THAT is my down fall. Great during the week (structured setting: work, etc.. get the munchies, have nothing to cure them so I ignore them). Crappy one the weekend (get the munchies and try reall, real, real hard to ignore it!).

Tue, 13 May 2014 13:16:30 EST Little man is sick today - but still funny! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5693229 He came down with a cold this weeknd and wanted to, at first, go to school then his tummy started feeling funny. So we head out so hubby can drop me off at work, take andrew to his grams (hubby's mom) then go to work himself. Once on the way to his grams, he proceeded to vomit. His comment - "well at least nowIi will only have the runny nose and cough now since that is out of my system". <BR> <BR> So cute even when he is sick!

He has shown no effort to trying to do things on his own. Granted he has not had one "accident' at school so far this week but he also has not tried ot go on his own or at least admit without being asked if he went in his pants. We have not given him one point since hs not earned them but Auntie keep sbuying him stuff that is not on his reward list - I really think that should stop all together but I know that is not going to happen.

I will have to call them if I decide to do this becasue then I will have to take the time to go and pay the co-pay... decisions. Or maybe I am just being way to impatient.
