I know its been a while, and it will probably be a while after this until I get a routine under my belt. <BR> <BR> And update on my life recently: I am currently 21 weeks pregnant with a beautiful baby boy! This is exciting to me because I have had infertility issue for a long time. It took me and my husband 7 years to conceive (although part of that time we hadn't been trying, but also not preventing). <BR> <BR> I got my First Big Positive in August, but lost the baby at ... Mon, 3 Mar 2014 16:25:19 EST The end of the week! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5529627 Although I have some stuff to do tomorrow, Im happy its the weekend! <BR> <BR> Had yet another fabulous run today of a full mile, and cut off 2 minutes from my time :D <BR> <BR> Tomorrow's events: Marching band performance at 8am (Yuck!), work from 9-2, gym time where I plan to run and lift, and then home for homework and chili :D Finally its cold enough that its chili time which means Noms! Now I just need to make sure I dont over eat lol. <BR> <BR> Well, till tomorrow Spark Family! Fri, 1 Nov 2013 22:03:40 EST A very proud moment! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5526900 So I dont know if you watch The Biggest Loser, but I do. Its very inspiration to me, for 2 reasons. One is the contestants who lose countless amounts of weight over a 3 month period and re-discover themselves. Two is the trainers. Day in and day out they work with people who fight, poke, cry, puke, and fight the system. <BR> <BR> What makes me so intrigued by these trainers is that they make sure the contestants KNOW that they are capable of such things that they never thought possible. Bot... Tue, 29 Oct 2013 22:22:47 EST Insanity, Cancer, and overall Progress http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5346678 A little bit of everything, so in other words, I just wanted to talk a bit :) Sun, 5 May 2013 21:33:53 EST Proud! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5337542 Kinda a long video, but Im still proud! So feel free to watch to make me smile :D Sat, 27 Apr 2013 18:07:16 EST Garcinia Cambogia Review http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5333569 Suprising first day! This might be something! Sorry I look so pale. Next time I wont sit infront of the sunlit window lol. Tue, 23 Apr 2013 23:21:51 EST My New sparkpage information http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5198849 I happen to read my introduction on my page today and realized it was the same as most peoples who don't know what to say: "This time is different! Change will happen! Health, here I come." <BR> <BR> These things were spouted over and over again, and I realized what it needed was some personality. Who am I if I am not me? So I changed it, and this is what it says... my story. <BR> <BR> "My name is Lindsay. I have a lot of friends that tell me that I am not over weight, but I think I just h... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 13:27:53 EST My day with the cinnamon and honey http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5193053 So this morning I had my green smoothie and it was amazing! I read this thing about how honey and cinnamon in combination was good for your, well, everything. It was a neat article about how it can attack different elements in your body depending on what you have. I know honey is good for you when you are sick, such as a sore throat or in hot tea for the chills, but never considered the two in combination. <BR> <BR> So this morning I decided to put both cinnamon and honey in my green smooth... Sun, 6 Jan 2013 12:10:33 EST The Green Smoothie Craze! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5191796 So for the year 2013, I have decided to start the green smoothie craze. I have had at least 1 green smoothie per day since January 1st and seemed to have dropped a few pounds. Nothing that seems out of the realm of water weight though. <BR> <BR> As I am doing the Green Smoothie Challenge, I am making it one smoothie a day for me. However, today I wanted to test myself to see if I can green smoothie it up all day. I couldn't :( Now dont get me wrong... I havent had nothing but candy, or whit... Sat, 5 Jan 2013 15:26:07 EST A toast! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5161573 This is something that makes me proud. I am almost under 170! This morning I was 170.8 which was a jump for joy! <BR> <BR> So I did well today with both food and exercise today. <BR> <BR> I had a good work out this even which ended in me sweating a lot! lol. I have a lock box in our living room to keep major paperwork. I use it to do step ups on. I had done these for around 30 minutes tonight and the sweat was just dripping! <BR> <BR> For food, I had a peanut butter, banana, and wheat ger... Sun, 9 Dec 2012 22:25:38 EST Small changes make big differences. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5157543 There are things in life that we just don't want to change. Unfortunately for us, if we want to succeed, we have to. <BR> <BR> So why go big? You cant run a mile tomorrow, if you just laced up your running shoes today. It just doesn't happen like that. There needs to be small changes, to see big differences. <BR> <BR> What was my big change today you ask? Well... I just happen to determine that I had to have coffee today. This isn't something I get everyday, but the occasional cup is a tr... Wed, 5 Dec 2012 21:18:43 EST A bad, but good day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5154156 I had a good day when it comes to exercise! I worked out in my livingroom over the course of 2 hours. <BR> <BR> This is a fantastic night in my eyes, seeing how I never get around to do much because I am always so busy. <BR> <BR> So great that I am doing that, however... my food today failed. I did a good job over that past week, but today I ate out at Taco Bell, had chocolate covered pretzels for breakfast (mainly because my dad came in and I had to leave asap so it was the closest thing... Sun, 2 Dec 2012 23:33:35 EST The change in me. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5146607 I am sitting in my room at the desk frustrated with my math homework, so I decided to just sit back and breath. In this small amount of time, I started to think about what I have both accomplished today and what I need to change. <BR> <BR> Today was my first day back at watching what I eat (not just as it passes from my fork to my mouth), and over all I thought it went pretty well. I never had one of those spells where I was dying for food, or craving random junk food, or worse than tha... Mon, 26 Nov 2012 00:40:50 EST BobHarper.com http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4811507 So have you all heard? The new Bob Harper workout website? Well, let me explain... <BR> <BR> Bob Harper is an idle of mine... the man is just amazing and the work that he does is ridiculous! Anyone agree? <BR> <BR> Anywho.... <BR> <BR> He had this new site up were he has a chance to be YOUR personal trainer. Well, in this case my personal trainer. haha... <BR> <BR> Anyway. I will try to do video blogs and regular blogs letting everyone know how it is an my progress. I am super excited! ... Thu, 29 Mar 2012 23:14:06 EST Trying to un-stress! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4675086 School starts Tuesday (would have been Monday, but for the holiday....) and I am trying to unwind a bit just so I can get ready for school to not freak out. This semester I determind to cope with the classes I will have to do a massive 44 hours of studying outside of class just to keep up. <BR> <BR> Anyway, I found a website called socialworkout.com that lets you post indivual results about your goals. LIke "give 1 hug per day". Stuff like that... <BR> <BR> Well on of them is write a jou... Wed, 11 Jan 2012 23:15:14 EST A quick run today? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4666234 With the new year upon us and the greater part of America thinking about there weight, I was surprised to see not a ton of stuff to do with weightloss in the stores this year. <BR> <BR> Normally the stores getting ready for the weightloss boom to hit as the new year starts and cracks you over the head with it as soon as you walk in the store. <BR> <BR> Normally this motivates me and I am one of the drooling women thinking to myself "wow, this product has to work, I mean look at it!" <BR> ... Sun, 8 Jan 2012 13:34:00 EST Back in action... Kinda http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4652636 So it is official. I made it 1 whole year without a sip of soda! GO Me!!! Now I am not going to lie, with that one year up, I drank a Pepsi. <BR> <BR> I didnt quit, because my New Years Resolution was to give up soda for just 1 year, and I accomplished it... <BR> <BR> What next you ask? <BR> <BR> Today my husband purchused a certain book I have been begging for resently... Thats right, you guessed it. I GOT THE SPARKPEOPLE COOKBOOK! I am super excited and plan to cook everything! Thats ri... Mon, 2 Jan 2012 22:02:44 EST Today was fantastic! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4612502 I am super happy right now. <BR> <BR> I started this morning by waking up in my livingroom next to my best friend whom I havent seen in a while. Me and her had a sleep over last night and stayed up till 4 in the morning watching movies. <BR> <BR> Our list includes: Stripes, Shawn the Sheep episodes, Season of the Witch, and then Brokeback Mountain. <BR> <BR> The first movie I saw and she didnt, but from then on they were new to both of us. We ate pizza and just enjoyed each others compa... Sun, 4 Dec 2011 22:27:46 EST My first 5K race... sorta... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4610884 So here is the deal... <BR> <BR> I have been looking for 5k's in the area. There arnt any close to me, and I have to be honost, the weather could turn and I dont want to run in 10 feet of snow. That doesnt matter anyway because there are none around here till next early spring anyway. <BR> <BR> So this is were sparkpeople comes in. They have this thing called "Virtual 5k races" They also have 10k runs and different walks you can do... this is what I did. I signed up for the 5k run/walk (si... Sat, 3 Dec 2011 17:53:05 EST Tomorrow is water Thursday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4606736 So I have done well, or at least ok with my food the past couple days but my water has been lacking. I think I have maybe drank a total of 3 cups of water in the past 24 hours and this morning I had the feeling of a hangover (which is caused by dehydration, not the actual alcohol)... And today, I still didnt drink hardly any water. I know what you are thinking, "well Lindsay, what did you drink?" To be honest... nothing. I just wasn't thirsty. I know better now and tomorrow I plan a full on w... Wed, 30 Nov 2011 21:32:19 EST Hungry, or not...? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4603228 So right now I am sitting in my bio class thinking about food. I am not hungry, just one of those moments when I am bored, so therefore I want to eat. <BR> <BR> What did I eat today already? <BR> <BR> Slice of whole wheat bread with Nutella, a cup of orange juice, a slice of string cheese, a full size carrot stick and two burritos... I am NOT hungry. So full, yet so craving. Mon, 28 Nov 2011 19:04:00 EST Snack Sunday and a few odds and ends! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4601189 Today I woke up and as soon as my feet hit the floor one of my legs gave out on me. I think that is a sign that I need to stop running for a day or so and give my legs a break. <BR> <BR> So what am I going to do you ask? <BR> <BR> Well... <BR> <BR> I believe that today is a day were I can do anything I want. I do not want to eat a meal, but snack all day long! A few crackers here and there, or a celery stick or even a carrot or two. Maybe a beer? (Micholob Ultra so its only 95 calories, lo... Sun, 27 Nov 2011 12:39:39 EST A new Woohoo moment for me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4600133 Off to the gym today I went... <BR> <BR> I know I am probably getting on everyones nerves by talking about a minute or two shaved off of my time when it comes to me running, but once again I am going to talk about what I did at the gym today. It makes me happy... <BR> <BR> Today I went to the gym a bit in pain. I am still really sore from the other day at the gym where I did running, kettlebell workouts and weight lifting. So I popped 800mg of Ibuprofen this morning and gave myself about 45... Sat, 26 Nov 2011 14:25:55 EST Yes... I ate yesterday. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4598861 Yes... I ate yesterday. <BR> <BR> A diet does not mean that I can't be involved in my family traditions. <BR> <BR> A diet does not mean that I can't eat the food my family has prepared. <BR> <BR> A diet does not mean that I can not be happy a couple of times a year with the feeling that I am about to throw up because I ate to much. <BR> <BR> What am I trying to say, you ask? <BR> <BR> Yes... I ate yesterday. <BR> <BR> My husband and I had two dinners yesterday. One at my families dinn... Fri, 25 Nov 2011 11:23:17 EST Today was a good, but bad ending day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4596021 Today was a good day overall. I had my breakfast of cereal (cocoa rice crispy) and some "cabbage apple stew" that my husband made last night (74 calories for 2 cups, so it rocks and its actually really good!) for a mid-morning lunch. Then I broke at actual lunch time at work and I got a hotdog and small fries. I will survive. That is what I keep telling myself. Then for dinner I had tacobell. Not terrible taco bell. I didnt get 2 supreme super burritos or anything, but still could have done ... Tue, 22 Nov 2011 21:59:28 EST A true Woohoo Moment! For me anyway! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4594678 If there was only one thing that I could say today it would be: "I am proud of myself" <BR> <BR> What did I do you ask? <BR> <BR> I ran... I ran for a good while for me. Yesterday I was proud that I ran for almost 5 minutes a couple different times during my 5k walk/run. This was a huge acheivement for me, seriously... something that I NEVER do. <BR> <BR> And what did I do today? Just one day later.... <BR> <BR> I ran... I ran for OVER 12 minutes! I couldnt believe my eyes when I was do... Mon, 21 Nov 2011 22:42:21 EST My fabulous day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4592787 Down how many pounds did I say? 4!!!! Sun, 20 Nov 2011 18:19:12 EST Blogging early today :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4592361 I wanted to write down a few things that I want to do today, rather than complain about what I didnt do today.... I believe that I can blog as much as I want, so why not blog twice. I will be doing a vlog later today on my progress of how I did. (at the request of MIBELLALUNA. :) I havent done a vlog for a while anyway, so it is time. <BR> <BR> First of all... my morning <BR> <BR> This morning I started slow, but it was my only day to sleep in so I am not regretting it at all. Everyone ne... Sun, 20 Nov 2011 11:53:22 EST My week. Sorry this is long! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4591847 Well its Saturday and today was my 6th day at work. I didnt make it to the gym today which did throw off my swing a bit, but I have been there almost every day this week. This makes me happy. <BR> <BR> <em>104</em> <BR> <BR> Now as for what I have done at the gym, well... <BR> <BR> I have done 2 zumba classes just because they were going on. I wasnt sure if I would get in a class due to the times they have them, but they just happen to start as I walked on in. Made me feel good that I h... Sat, 19 Nov 2011 22:38:01 EST Goal met and feeling great! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4587416 So yesterday I did make it to the gym first of all! I felt great most of the day, but did have a pick me up of tea later in the day. <BR> <BR> This is how my day went: <BR> <BR> 1.) Made it to the gym BEFORE work! How bout that. What I learned from this experience, you ask? Well, I learned that it is possible!!! Secondly, I learned that if I get going before work rather than sleeping in 5 minutes before I am suppose to leave I have a better work attitude. Its as simple as that. It starts m... Wed, 16 Nov 2011 16:51:03 EST My new way of thinking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4584054 This will be a quick one seeing how I am on a time crunch for school. I have class in an hour and a half and still have to get a shower and drive 40 minutes. <BR> <BR> So I am making an effort to get on here once a day. There are a few things that I need to get on here before I decided to drop off the face of the earth... I do that, I say I will get on there in a few and then I forget or get lazy and I can always do it tomorrow. NOT THIS TIME! This is something that I want to do for me! <... Mon, 14 Nov 2011 15:55:12 EST I need friends and suggestions! Please read!!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4581348 I still am trying to figure out what I am doing wrong. I love reading the blogs where people are bragging about "how well they are doing", or "my secrets to success. So what I am doing wrong? <BR> <BR> I am still stuck at a freaking 158 pounds. I mean really? I know what I am doing is not going to make me lose any weight, but I am having problems sticking with something that will. Maybe if I list my faults I can see how many bad choices I am making and work on those. <BR> <BR> 1. Not stick... Sat, 12 Nov 2011 20:37:44 EST Day 5.. not so great http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4547300 So the past 3 days (the time between my blogs) have been horrific for my diet... Pizza one day, 2 large pepperoni rolls today, taco bell, ore's... <BR> <BR> What did I tell my boss at work... "Dent judge me" when I brought oreos and milk for breakfast one morning. It was the first thing that I grab, and I was out of SMART ONES breakfast samwhiches. <BR> <BR> I was bad... <BR> <BR> Then I realised (after reading another sparkpersons blog) that I am trying to do to much. Almost a year ago, I... Sat, 22 Oct 2011 00:14:05 EST Day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4542611 Work was sooo slow today, yet so busy. I didnt get to hardly eat lunch... We have never been like that since I have started. I did stay under my calories however and was proud of that :) I drank the last beer that I had in the fridge, and was still under my calorie count. Woot sauce! :D <BR> <BR> Working tomorrow then off to my wednesday classes. Not sure what time I will have to eat tomorrow, but I will try my hardest to get through my day without jumping off the calorie deep end. <BR> ... Tue, 18 Oct 2011 23:54:13 EST Day one almost done! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4540156 I have been doing homework in the library at school for almost 2 hours now and am having trouble taking food off of my mind. I have been doing a good job for day one of this go, but now I am super hungry and felt that if I blogged it might help me get this off my mind a bit. <BR> <BR> I woke up this morning and had oatmeal with a bit of milk and stevia. I went for a free "womens health" screening a couple of weeks ago and they wanted me to get my calcium level up, so I had a full 8oz glass ... Mon, 17 Oct 2011 16:29:46 EST Just a brief... 10 min hello. :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4538912 A brief hello. You dont have to watch if you dont want too. Sun, 16 Oct 2011 23:42:11 EST Here we go... again. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4536556 So about 2 months ago Sparkpeople was my life. I was on the site several times a day, keeping track of everything that went into my mouth. I WAS loosing weight, I WAS doing good, and I WAS enjoying life. <BR> <BR> Then I went back to school and was still working full time... <BR> <BR> Everything changed. I was tired, fighting to stay afloat with everything. Did I mention I am married with a home life? lol. So much more information.... <BR> <BR> My school schedule was done in the evening... Sat, 15 Oct 2011 09:44:41 EST A plan for my day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4438118 Well its Saturday. Its been a while since I have typed myself up a blog and as I was sitting here thinking of how to start my day I figured if I mapped out my day that it would make my day more official. <BR> <BR> What am I doing right now? I am sitting eating a few potato chips with cheese dip and a large glass of water. I know, I know... chips and dip are bad. Once again, let me say... I KNOW! Well, as I see myself typing my blog it made me look at the chips and say to myself Gross!! What... Sat, 20 Aug 2011 10:22:29 EST My self exposed for all to see... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4437437 This is my small rant video... I am mad at myself and talk about self beauty. :) Fri, 19 Aug 2011 21:05:51 EST My family time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4424421 So it is the fantastic day again.... Saturday. I have one more Saturday to enjoy because after that I start my school journey! I am starting classes for pre-pharm (or at least some classes, most I need the pre-requisites for.) <BR> <BR> Here is my schedule: <BR> <BR> Monday: English, Math, and Human Biology (Lecture) <BR> Tuesday Work 9-5, Intro to Pyscology (until 10:00pm, ugh) <BR> Wednesday: English, Math, and Human Biology (Lab) <BR> Thurs-Sun: Work for some 8 hour shift except... Sat, 13 Aug 2011 10:58:30 EST Better today, Maybe? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4420725 Right now my husband is at work... I am sitting here in pain and misery (my period is a rough one this time) and I am thinking to myself: "Why did I eat the way I did yesterday?" I had no reason to do so, and no reason to and I wasn't going to die if I didn't. I wasn't even hungry! I just wanted food... that is all! <BR> <BR> I haven't eaten today yet, mainly in protest to my ravenous actions yesterday, but I am still not hungry, so why eat? I should however get some water in me because I at... Thu, 11 Aug 2011 11:50:08 EST A bad thing... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4419730 Well, I did a bad thing today... My period got the better of me and I was emotional and I ate. I am not saying that I am an emotional eater because I am not. Normally if I am sad, I steer away from food... but.... <BR> <BR> I just was craving. I wasn't even hungry (probably because of the protein I have been getting) but I just wanted food in my body. <BR> <BR> I spent all day at the university getting stuff ready for school, but as soon as I got home I whined and pleaded to my husband to ... Wed, 10 Aug 2011 22:08:59 EST My day and good news! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4417315 I mention my period, so sorry if you are a guy and can not stand that kind of story. lol... Tue, 9 Aug 2011 19:50:36 EST A bad day, but a good c25k run... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4415440 So today was a fairly good day... Mostly <BR> <BR> There was a time this morning when my husband was in a good mood. He is not anymore, but I guess I will deal with that later. <BR> <BR> This morning for me was a good morning. I have a friend that I work with that also lives in my city so I dont always have to drive to work when we have the same shift. This makes me happy... it saves money, and I am not found of driving all the time. This gives me a break where I can just relax. <BR> <BR>... Mon, 8 Aug 2011 21:45:45 EST My exercise on a rainy day.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4413644 A brief update with me showing my exercise alternitive when raining :) Mon, 8 Aug 2011 07:08:39 EST A rough night http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4411452 So I have been complaining about not getting out and getting my stuff done... Meaning exercise! I have done "fair" so to speak when it comes to eating ( I could always do better) but have been lacking exercise. <BR> <BR> Well last night I went to bed and could not sleep to save my life... I was running on about 15-30 minutes of sleep last night which I never do. I almost always get 8-9 hours a night give or take. <BR> <BR> Last night was dreadful. I had to be up by 7 for work and I was wo...
