Between marriage issues, friends and family passing, job and money trouble the last thing I was thinking about was getting fit. <BR> <BR> With a new year coming, and a host of potentially good things to look forward to in 2008, I’m ready to get back on track. I am determin... Thu, 6 Dec 2007 16:55:50 EST Here we go again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=719179 Today, I begin again, as I am often want to do. I am off to a bad start, having succumed to the dreaded lure of Starbucks on my way to work. I will, however, persevere and hit the treadmill at lunch, followed by a tasty Lean Cuisine treat and some yummy fruit. I CAN do this, right? Mon, 27 Aug 2007 10:48:44 EST Once more into the breach... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=704390 So, here I am again, plotting the demise of my fat, unhealthy self and the rise of my new, gloriously fit self. <BR> <BR> I often wonder why I try and fail at this seemingly simple task so many times. Will I ever get it right? I was doing so well before the cataclism. I suppose I am nothing if not persistant. I may not be very well motivated and rather on the lazy side, but I haven't given up the goal entirely. I don't want to spend the rest of my life being "The Fat Friend". I just ne... Thu, 16 Aug 2007 15:43:20 EST The Big 3-5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=318792 Wow, I think it has been entirely too long since I posted on this blog. I just joined the CMT, and now I have to post at least once a week I think so here's hoping this is the motivation I need to get back on track and get below 200! <BR> <BR> I am having a hard time keeeping controll of the emotional eating right now simply because I am not looking forward to Monday the 27th. I will be 35 that day, and when I look at my life, and where I am and what I am doing, I am so dissapointed in ... Sun, 19 Nov 2006 10:37:53 EST Fooling Myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=216764 So, the goal I made for myself to limit my reading time to match my working out time has failed miserably. Mostly, because I came to realise that reading is an escape, and it's a positive one. If I'm reading, I'm not eating. It does not work as a reward for me. It's as much a part of my life as breathing. I've also found that if I don't read before bed, calming myself down as it were, I don't sleep nearly as well as I do after indulging in a few chapters. <BR> <BR> So, we live and lea... Tue, 18 Jul 2006 19:49:37 EST Starting over, all over again. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=211230 Life is a journey made up of starts and stops. Detours, dead ends and hairpin turns. Sometimes you feel like you are meeting yourself comming and going. Especially on the road to a healthy life. <BR> <BR> Every morning, I wake up and vow to live a heathier life. To eat better, to work out, to quit smoking. Somedays, it's smooth sailing. The road stretches out straight and flat like Kansas, and the way is clear. Other days, it's like driving through the mountains, sheer cliff walls on ... Wed, 12 Jul 2006 10:00:52 EST Tales of Woe... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=196427 Alright, not really, but it sounded good. <BR> <BR> I'm feeling off today, somewhat light headed, can't focus, exhausted, nausea too. I have had a hard time with making healthy choices in the food department the last few days, so maybe thats it. Or maybe it's something else. :) <BR> <BR> I'm feeling guilty too, for not working out on the treadmill today. I had been doing really well too. I did still manage to do the stairs when I went down for lunch, but just barely. The elevator was c... Thu, 22 Jun 2006 15:53:27 EST Eyes Wide Open! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=182572 Well, after entering yesterdays food intake, and then picking myself back up off the floor, I realized that I have been sabotaging myself. I tooking in nearly double the recomended amount of everything except protien yesterday. Over 3000 calories. I'm disgusted with myself. The bright note is that I tried to get some good exercise. We went "hiking" although it was more like a walk sincce Rick couldn't keep up. That's a first! Me, being the one someone couldn't keep up with. I worry about ... Sun, 4 Jun 2006 11:29:26 EST Stumbling Block http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=182067 I didn't so so well yesterday. Not only did I not exercise (other than to take the dog out), but I went way over my calorie alotment. I shouldn't have had that Starbucks, but at least I learned a lesson, next time I have to plan better for a reward like that. <BR> <BR> I have been struggling with depression this week too. I miss my husband more than I can express, and I wish he were around more. We haven't been intimate in so long, that I'm begining to think we'll never have a child, ev... Sat, 3 Jun 2006 11:45:44 EST New Beginings... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=180919 Today, I begin again. 10 years ago today I married my exhusband. I've shed the ex, now it's time to shed the pounds I gained while married to him. Thu, 1 Jun 2006 16:27:21 EST
