I could say tomorrow but why not start today. Over the past year and a half I've added goals each week to get healthier. I've lost 20 pounds and am happy. The past few weeks i've been pretty inconsistent and am not happy about that. I just don't feel as good as I did when I was following my goals. My brother is my role model in this. He is younger than me and very fit and health. I realized that the other day when on Thanksgiving, h...

I haven't been eating too much sugar lately and decided to eat a muffin from Dunkin Donuts this morning. I got so sick after it and feel better now but still blah. No more for me! Sat, 24 May 2014 11:58:43 EST December 26, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5572121 Well..I didn't get to my goal weight by yesterday but I did lose 4 pounds. I reset my goal for March. I have been sick the last few days and haven't been eating normally but I am hoping to get back into it today. <BR> <BR> Thu, 26 Dec 2013 09:48:00 EST November 17, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5543787 Well, I realized that I only have about a month to lose 8 more pounds. I want to be down to 160 by Christmas. I weighed myself this morning and had lost a pound so I was really happy about that. Thinking back to my week, I didn't do too bad but I can do better. If I just make sure I reach each goal everyday I should be fine. Today, I only ate one fruit instead of 2 and didn't have my yogurt but I did go to the gym! <BR> <BR> New Weekly Goal: <BR> -Don't eat after 9. Sun, 17 Nov 2013 20:58:48 EST November 3, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5530904 I lost 2 pounds!!!! YEAH! i definitely made plenty of mistakes this week and didn't reach my goal of working out 4 days a week but at least I'm getting somewhere. Of course, I'm sitting in Barnes and Noble right now and asked if they had a fruit cup, which they didn't :-( So I got a pumpkin cupcake instead..probably not the best choice but I'll get there one day. <BR> <BR> Here's my new goal for the week: Taking a multi-vitamin everyday! Sun, 3 Nov 2013 11:51:35 EST October 28, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5525224 A friend who is going to help me out told me to keep a journal so I thought this was the best way! My goal is to eventually lose 50 pounds but I am going to take it slowly. I just had a baby in April so I have a lot of pregnancy weight to still lose. So many people tell me, "Well you just had a baby." That is not an excuse anymore! I don't feel good and my clothes don't fit. Now is the time! <BR> <BR> I want to be a role model for my daughter. I see what other family members and fri...

Thu, 5 Jan 2012 20:55:41 EST January 2, 2011 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4651456 So I just left lunch at Red Robin. After eating a huge burger and french fries, I decided that I really need to stop eating the way I have the past few months and start eating healthier. A few years ago I was down to my lowest weight and feeling wonderful. Now I just feel horrible. I'm almost 30 pounds heavier than I was then and even though I just got married 5 months ago, I'm not sure I would be able to fit into my wedding dress. <BR> <BR> I get frustrated at times because I tell peopl...

Fri, 17 Jun 2011 10:33:24 EST worry http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3805088 I was just reading today's healthy reflection and was noticing how much it related to me. It was about worry and how worry stresses us out. I worry about everything and I notice that it causes a huge stress on me. I make up scenerios that probably would never happen. I try to talk myself out of not worrying and it may work for a day or two but then I'm right back to where I started. I have to start realizing that some things are just not in my control and whatever happens happens. It's ... Thu, 25 Nov 2010 08:20:56 EST November 9, 2010 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3773631 Today was parent teacher conferences at work! I find myself looking at people and wondering what their eating and fitness lifestyles are. I hope this isn't bad! Tue, 9 Nov 2010 19:28:55 EST journal http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3758079 I've often thought about starting a journal about feelings, things that happen during the day, etc. But then I remembered that Sparkpeople has a blog so I think I am going to start blogging regularly! Tue, 2 Nov 2010 21:54:49 EST My healthy lifestyle http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3468886 So I always say I'm going to eat healthier but in the past I think in the back of my mind I've used that excuse as a diet. It's lasted a few days, lost its appeal, and has been restarted every Monday. I am currently 5'5 and weigh 127 so I do not need to lose weight. However, I recently got engaged and have a lot to live for. My fiance and I have decided that starting tomorrow we will lead a healthy lifestyle. I'm actually very excited about it.....i'm going to work at going ot the gym mo... Sun, 25 Jul 2010 22:02:24 EST My biggest trouble "spot" http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2563334 The hardest thing for me is temptation. If I know something is in the house, no matter how great my plan is not to eat it, I will eventually eat it during the day. If I go to a party and I tell myself what I'm going to eat and what I am not, it always ends up that I eat the wrong things because they are right in front of me. This is an area that I would like to work on so that I can only eat things that are good for my body. Sun, 15 Nov 2009 15:32:45 EST
