Bring on Friday! Thu, 5 Sep 2013 22:28:45 EST Good weekend ... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5474003 but it was a little light on the walking. I took Saturday off and a deserved break then I just did a minimal walk today at the mall. I will be back on schedule tomorrow with a walk when I get home from work. Food is going well although I went over slightly on Saturday. All is well still and still on track. Mon, 2 Sep 2013 22:10:45 EST Yay! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5470987 Still on track! I've walked 4 days in a row! I'm not giving up. <BR> If I can do 5 days in a row I will allow myself a day to rest. But if my energy is up why rest!!? Keep on going girl! Fri, 30 Aug 2013 15:19:10 EST On Track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5470350 Yay! I am doing well! <BR> Keep on going, Lea!! <BR> Thu, 29 Aug 2013 22:24:13 EST The Hardest Part is ... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5468068 starting again. I knew I had gained some weight back but I finally found the courage to step on the scale to see how much. I'm not ready to add it up for total gained but any amount is too much. <BR> <BR> I am back to tracking again on Spark. I just can't lose sight of all the hard work I put in to get where I am today. <BR> <BR> A friend reminded me to focus on the positive ... so each day I will highlight one positive thing about getting healthy and losing weight. <BR> <BR> *** I like th... Tue, 27 Aug 2013 16:35:23 EST Still Slightly Off Track ... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5379614 I am still in limbo. Half off the wagon and still not walking. What gives? I am looking for that little pep ... that little boost to get moving again. At least tonight I logged my food and I am still under calorie goal which is good. One step at a time. Wed, 5 Jun 2013 21:32:31 EST Getting Sick Always Sets Me Back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5375605 A migraine was my undoing for a few days. Recovering today and almost at 100%. I am on track with everything so far today. Biggest two goals for the day will be to stay in calorie range and do strength training. I can do it. I CAN DO IT. Sun, 2 Jun 2013 13:17:57 EST Winning Some ... Losing Some http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5372011 I looked in the mirror tonight ... half length. Disappointed but the question is will this be the motivation I need to have more good days than I have been having? Walk!!! Wed, 29 May 2013 23:05:33 EST One Day at a Time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5369722 I took a couple of days off after Friday's revelations. I have been just trying to get it straight in my head that I need to get back on the wagon. Today was the first day back. Good with food, good with walking but not with water. Need to drink more. Nothing else to report ... Tomorrow it's back to work and the normal schedule. Wish me luck. Mon, 27 May 2013 21:13:06 EST Ugh! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5366698 I gained again! Another 2 pounds. I let the week slip through my fingers and now look where I've ended up. I'm disappointed in myself. The only thing I can do is do better. The day is still new and if I try I can pick myself up and get back on track for the rest of the day. The most challanging part of that will be to get that walk in there ... Fri, 24 May 2013 12:13:11 EST Saturday, Sunday ... and Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5362709 What a whirlwind weekend. I was on task for the most part EXCEPT when we went to the movies on Saturday!! Arrgghhhh! POPCORN with BUTTER. Killed the day. But I just started fresh the next day. All ok for now. <BR> <BR> Today was a doozy. It's hard to stay on point if your day is upside down. Luckily I planned ahead (made lunch and ate an early breakfast) and indulged just a touch to take the edge off. It was definitely a case of the Mondays. I didn't go over the edge with my mini donut ... <... Mon, 20 May 2013 20:21:07 EST End of the First Day - Restart http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5359711 I've reached the end of this first new day. I did pretty well for myself. I am still within my calorie range but the vanilla ice cream I desperately want will put me over if I have it. I am debating. Maybe I can swap it with something else. Did the 10 minute walk although it was not totally continuous. That's ok. Forgot about the weight training. I may still do it though. Attitude in check! Today's reward for the restart is a bottle of pink nail polish. Tomorrow I paint! Fri, 17 May 2013 21:34:30 EST Simple Goals for Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5359329 1. Stay within calorie range while not eating empty calories. <BR> 2. Walk at least 10 minutes, ideally 30. <BR> 3. Do weight training today ... Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, Sunday <BR> 4. Keep a positive mental attitude ... visualize my 155 goal. <BR> 5. Reward myself when I stay on goal. Fri, 17 May 2013 12:56:30 EST Restart!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5359284 I have been off track for awhile ... derailed by Sandy ... gaining little by little. Today I weighed myself and that's 2 pounds more just like that! Aaaackkk! I need help! But just like that I can also start eating well again and working out ... walking. Today is my restart. I'm ready now. And in a couple of weeks I will be back to losing again. I just have to hang on for 2 weeks for the high of losing to come back. The excitement and happiness. I can still say that I've lost 27 pounds and th... Fri, 17 May 2013 12:17:03 EST The Next Level http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5037918 SparkPeople is AMAZING! I have lost a good chunk of weight (32 lbs - YAY!!) and I have learned so much about how to take care of this body and get it to work right. Right now, though, I am a little stuck in limbo ... I am on a plateau and I am also in a place where I can't seem to get back into a good rhythm. I am struggling with staying in my calorie range as well as eating healthy things in that calorie range rather than junk. I am struggling more and more to get in that 40 minutes of cardi...
