Well I got a serious injury from overly working out. I've been really afraid to workout since then and TADA I've gained an extra 35 pounds. I weigh 264 <em>40</em> . Since the beginning of the year I've been working out doing very low impact exercises. My diet is crap. But I'm starting slow. Last night I ordered T25. I'm hoping the cost alone will motive me to do it. I believe I'm addicted to junk food. Exercise has neve... Sun, 23 Feb 2014 09:19:21 EST Something else I've noticed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4977155 Actually I noticed it a while back. It's hard to eat 1660-2010 calories a day in a healthy way. I ate what seemed to be 6 carrots (a small bag of carrot sticks) and it only came out to be 35 calories. I try not to drink too much juice any more because that really packs in the calories. <BR> My point is I was only eating about 2 full meals a day back when I was eating McDonalds and going way over 1660 calories. Now its hard to get that in 3 meals and 2 snacks. Thu, 19 Jul 2012 02:30:04 EST Trying something different http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4977149 Instead of a whole lifestyle over haul. .. I'm going to try mastering my diet and tracking it then add exercise to the mix since exercise comes so easy to me. But doing both at once seems to throw me off. Especially when my diet goes off the tracks it seems to all come crashing down. <BR> A few days ago I went and filled my house with only healthy foods. And I've been decent about tracking so far too. Maybe by only focusing on that for a while I'll be able to commit more. Thu, 19 Jul 2012 02:14:21 EST Sabbotage http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4915543 I swear my aunt is trying to destroy my health efforts. This week I have been cooking all my meals and tracking them in my Sparkpeople log. And today she brought me McDonalds. 2 cheeseburgers , a large fry and a 32oz sweet tea. None of which I touched. I throw a few oz of steak on my George Foreman grill with some corn and a water. So if she wants to keep throwing away her money let her. But I won't be eatting out any time soon. Wed, 6 Jun 2012 22:58:10 EST I've gained 15 pounds :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4910684 About a month and a half ago I went on a cruise and did some serious damage. Why is it so easy to gain weight? I went to the doctor Thursday and found out I weigh 231 pounds. At my heaviest I was 235. I feel like crying. I absolutely refuse to eat out again ever. I'll be cooking everything for now on. Now if I could only get my aunt and grandfather to stop buying me and my daughter cookies and candy. Sun, 3 Jun 2012 22:43:57 EST HBO's The Weight of a Nation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4888998 I watched it today and learned alot. It's a series about obesity in America. I'm so afraid of getting diabiets now. It also told me that the reason I can't keep the weight I lose off is you have to continue to act as if you're trying to lose weight the rest of forever. <BR> <BR> I've noticed myself drinking more water and less juice lately. This summer I'm going on a $ diet to save up for a vacation next year. So no more eatting out for me. And when I cook I always cook healthy foods. Thi... Sat, 19 May 2012 20:55:12 EST Motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4800507 So in January I was exercising every day. 2-4 hours a day. Now it's been 2 weeks since I've thought about the gym let alone gone. I'm going back in the morning. But I'm nervous. I use to love the gym. My diet has always been my down fall. But it's the night before and I already don't feel like going. I don't know what's wrong with me. My motivation is gone. I need help. Thu, 22 Mar 2012 22:12:24 EST Where I am now http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4670001 I got sick in late November and stopped everything for almost a month. During winter break I started back exercising 3 to 4 days a week. Last week I moved up to working out 1 -2 hours a day every day. I'm trying to move up to working out 2x a day every day. I'll do an hour or two in the morning and an hour or two in the evening. <BR> <BR> In the morning I'm going back to tracking my food intake. <BR> <BR> I was told taking a shot of vinigar with your meals will lower your calorie intake by... Mon, 9 Jan 2012 22:01:46 EST weight loss pils http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4532985 I am thinking about taking Hydroxy Cut to jump start my weight loss. I heard once you stop taking them you gain all the weight back. Is that true? Your thoughts? Wed, 12 Oct 2011 23:06:29 EST i have to start over :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4503986 I was down to 180 in April. Then my gym membership got messed up for like 2 months. I don't know why but eveything else went out the window when that happened. I looked up today and realized I've gained all my weigh back if not more. I'm trying not to cry because I know I can do it. I'm just so disappoInted in myself. Mon, 26 Sep 2011 00:02:41 EST le sigh http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3793127 I did it again. I got a massage this morning and haven't been drinking water like I was suppose to. Then idk why but I might have had 500 calories all day. This evening I did 1 1/2 hour of high intensity workout. Now that I'm too sleepy to move I want to know "did I do too much damage today". I mean it was only one day. Right? Thu, 18 Nov 2010 22:34:31 EST Pain! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3772925 I'm doing it! I'm so proud of me! I started off food charting, watching what I eat, then yesterday I returned to the gym. I only did an hour on the thread mill, then a belly dancing session but it most have been too much. I felt great on there. Like nothing else in the world. The trainer was amazed by 1/2 mile I was still having a full conversation effortlessly. A few hours later it hit me like a ton of bricks. OMG its still too much to move. Everything hurts. The moral to this story....stret... Tue, 9 Nov 2010 13:11:40 EST but its nasty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3756785 So yesterday morning I messed up (had a good time with the Eggos). But I finished off strong last night. I think I'm going to give myself 1 cheat meal a day since I restarting. Anyway today I got up and fixed myself some oatmeal since I decided to have pizza tonight. This is where things went down hill. Now I prefer milk instead of water in oatmeal. So I thought I'd use Silk instead of 2%. Well maybe I used too much or something because then it was soupy. So I added another pack but that didn... Tue, 2 Nov 2010 11:46:21 EST can't understand http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3740164 Today actually this week I've been doing my food charting. It seems like I can't meet my food intake requirements. That is unless I eat junk. Now I get that healthy food has less calories than junk but I can eat 3 -4 tacos and an order of cinnamon twist from Taco Bell but 2 homemade quesadillas are too filling to finish. Has anyone else experienced this? Mon, 25 Oct 2010 21:11:47 EST starting over http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3720384 So 3 months ago I was down 20 pounds which put me below 200pounds! YAY!

Sun, 17 Oct 2010 07:56:20 EST Eatting habits and Protein Shakes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3345717 I'm wondering. I did breakfast, snack, lunch, snack and gym. For a grand total of 1100 calories. Well I'm suppose to be between 1400 and 1800 daily. For the last 3 or so days I've been around 800-1300. IDK eating healthy bores me and I have to force myself to eat it. There was some small joy in chocolate. Getting back on subject I was thinking I'll just have a protein shake and call it a day. But it's 10:10pm. Is it too late? What to do? Thu, 17 Jun 2010 22:11:48 EST There's an APP for that! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3340670 Sparkpeople has an app! Maybe I'm late but I had all but given up on my healthy lifestyle. Seeing this app has but everything in focus. There is absolutly NO ZERO excuse to not drop these pounds now. As I'd rather naw off my own arm then be without my phone. THANK YOU SPARKPEOPLE! Wed, 16 Jun 2010 13:14:21 EST SMH Just one of those WTF days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2540341 So today started like any other. Got up took the kid to school came back to get ready for my job interview. I wasn't trilled about the interview as I've worked there before and ......nevermind. Anyway hair's done, nicely dressed and make up on point driving along minding my business when I'm pulled over for the 2nd time this week for my expired car tags. <em>39</em> Thus making me late. But that's not the bad part. Monday my blackberry broke and had to be replaced. When it was replaced they ... Fri, 6 Nov 2009 16:49:52 EST Bad bad me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2495526 We had a pizza party today at school. I had 2 slices of pizza 1 pepperoni, 1 cheese, 1 piece of cake, 1 cupcake, 1 bite sized Butterfinger, 1 med size bag of Doritos, 1 fun bag of Oreos, 1 can of Mtn Dew, 1 OceanSpray juice and 32oz of water. I was stuffed and valled to not eat another bite once I got home. HOWEVER when I got home my family decided to send me out for take out. I was still stuffed to almost the point of being physically ill. But for some reason smelling that Taco Bell did me i... Tue, 20 Oct 2009 23:47:37 EST Food Journal and Protein Shakes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2487769 I don't like the way this food journal is set up. GNC use to have a great 1 that really really helped me! For some reason they did away with it <em>39</em> . Do you know of any free food journals that are easy to access, includes all foods and condiments and will tell me my exact nutritional intakes? GNC also had their workout section the same way. I've tried everything else it seems like a food journal's the only thing that works for me. That's how I lost my 1st 30 pounds. This year I've ... Sun, 18 Oct 2009 10:27:32 EST Determination http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2206911 So for the past week I've been good about working out and eating right and today I started a food journal because I don't like this one. I'm very very proud of myself! <BR> <BR> But yesterday I was thrown off due to family visiting and not having access to amble space to workout. Once I didn't workout the junk food just flowed in. GRRRR... I feel so discouraged right now. I want them out NOW! I noticed my set back and regrouped my diet but they're in my space. I really need to move around ... Mon, 6 Jul 2009 14:36:21 EST
