CHELLE82's SparkPeople Blog CHELLE82's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Help? So I have been beating around the bush about getting fit/loosing weight. I am now 229.8 lbs something I am not proud of. I am having a hard time finding balance and its getting worse as age is catching up with me. I am in the right mind to make changes after talking with my husband about the weight issue I had asked about going to a Doctor to help me with finding a balance he told me we would think about it after the auction (a place we are trying to buy). We have alot on our "plate" with tr... Sun, 4 Jun 2017 14:44:41 EST Stressing!!! I have gained all the weight back I have lost I am back up to almost 225. College, moving, eating horribly, stress it's all adding up. I threw out my back on top of having a respiratory virus. I'm finally getting better doctor said I should lay off the walking for a week....I am in a walking fitness class in college...ugh!!! So the Dr suggested I look into different exercises to strengthen the back, legs, and abs. I ask my professor if she had any suggestions, said she didn't feel comfortable... Wed, 22 Feb 2017 09:29:33 EST Turkey day is over I got up early made thanksgiving dinner ate and came back home and fell asleep got on scale after waking up and it wasn't pretty I knew it wasn't going to be good, I stopped smoking once again back on October 30th. Never fails, I quit and I gain a crap load of weight. Well this is the second time I have been this heavy and I don't like it one bit. So now to do something about it!! Taking the time to figure out what will work best. Fri, 25 Nov 2016 01:33:56 EST So much to do!! Starting off, some of my clothes are becoming loose i really haven't done much other than cutting back on food. With this said the batteries in the scale have went bad so no idea where I am at. <BR> I have a biology midterm to study for and a Theatre paper to write and this house is in major need of a cleaning and eventually will get to the kitchen and finish hanging up the cabinet doors and hanging up shelves and finish getting things put away. Feeling a little overwhelmed I really needed t... Sat, 15 Oct 2016 12:00:00 EST 2016 OKC Color Run I took 2 of my kids to a last minute Color Run. We had a blast! The run was held at Remington Park in OKC. It was the first one I have done where it was about 90% uphill. It was a great way to re-jumpstart my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I have been doing some research and going contemplating what worked in the past. <BR> - Swimming (its cold now and my pool isn't set up for heat) <BR> - Zumba <BR> - BBL worked wonders but this is something I think I may have to work...

I really wanted to go crawl in bed and take a nap (was up all night with Dax having major meltdowns and also had to stay at school for 45 mins helping calm him down to stop trying to bite everyone lovely ) but I was like I can actually get some exercise in with babies taking a nap or I can sleep and get nothing done.
