Go ahead and look, it's okay! I have now hit 22 pounds of weight loss, and I am excited about that!!!!!! Yeah, Go team God. So proud to be apart of God's team because there is no way I could do this alone. So I give him the praise and claim my health in the Fathers name. So, why don't you go out and be a blessing to someone today too!!!! <BR> <BR> <em>381</em> Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:28:23 EST So far, alls well! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5487343 Well, I got up late this morning and still managed to eat breakfast. I have staid on track thus far and see it continuing throughout the day. I do feel more hungry more often today. I have noticed that when you are starting new eating habits, eating like you should and the things you should, that feeling hungry more often is normal. After a week or so of eating right it all levels out and you are satisfied more often than not. So, here's to praying for success! <BR> <em>104</em> Mon, 16 Sep 2013 14:34:32 EST Back to it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5486618 It is time that I get back to doing what is healthy for me. I am out of school now, working steady hours and have time to get a routine. So, it is time to stop complaining about my weight and do something about it. Here I go. I did my tracking for the day and here I am telling you all that I am getting serious again, and that I will need a ton of help staying serious. I am starting out walking on the treadmill because I just got a very serious shin splint healed and I am working on my ab... Sun, 15 Sep 2013 21:34:11 EST Jumped http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5296495 I just want to admit that I didn't fall off the wagon today; I jumped!!!!!!!!! I had pizza not much fruit and veggies, and yes I had a 32 ounce pop. Let me tell you it was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Now that it is out of my system I can get serious again. Yes, I do feel better after my dietary 2 year old fit!!! <BR> <em>345</em> Fri, 22 Mar 2013 18:27:26 EST Enjoyable http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5295517 I had a very nice afternoon with my family today, and got to visit with my mom. It is amazing how the little things make you feel good. I am of the opinion that a good solid relationship with your family is where all the happiness begins, well except all that begins with putting Christ first. That is all the wonder Chellism I have today. God bless. <em>220</em> Thu, 21 Mar 2013 21:43:02 EST Filled upside down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5294009 I think I have figured out why people go insane. We try so hard to get a daily routine and that works for a little bit. But do we ever figure in the school breaks, or extra shift, child's friend over for the night. All these things change a routine, if we work so hard to keep a routine we will eventually go insane just trying to keep up. So my advice for today is to chill out, be on time, and roll with life's everyday twists and turns. I find it much easier for my sanity. <BR> <em>306<... Wed, 20 Mar 2013 17:47:08 EST Busier http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5292542 I am here to tell you I think I have been busier on Spring break than I usually am. This is Crazy!! Isn't Spring break supposed to be relaxing and fun? Well at least I got a week I didn't have to do homework. But I just realized that I do have things do first thing Monday morning, so, I guess it is time to get started on that stuff too. Wow, I will be glad when I am done with school and I can try and find a new old normal. Tue, 19 Mar 2013 14:40:55 EST Total mess up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5288006 So I have a funny. I had started tracking on the 14th for that day. Then I went to work (overnight) and I thought I would finish my tracking....well I forget that the day had already switched to the 15th. So the 14th and 15th are now a composite of the 2 days. the 14th shows under my nutritional goals, the 15th shows me over my nutritional goals. So laugh it up. Fri, 15 Mar 2013 17:30:31 EST Spring break http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5286304 Well mid-terms and spring break is upon us. So, can knock out the very few tests I have to take and then enjoy a small break. Now I just have to figure out the balance between working overnight and eating right. I go to work tonight and have to adjust my eating schedule. Wish me luck. Thu, 14 Mar 2013 09:41:54 EST So proud http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5285809 I am so proud of myself. I ate right all day and had enough room to enjoy an individual bag of chips and I didn't go over my counts. It feels good to know that I can still have those little treats. Well, its been a long day so I am getting off here. See you tomorrow. Wed, 13 Mar 2013 21:44:30 EST So far so good http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5283657 Well I am off to a good start today. All the best laid plans ahead of me and every intention of doing them all. Get the kid to the bus...check; eat a balanced breakfast...check; make my list of things to do...check; now I just have to get off this addicting site and go do the to do list. Oh, clean house, do laundry, do homework, fix supper, and go to class; just thought I would throw that in on top of my to do list. This may not sound like much but if you knew how easily I get distracted yo... Tue, 12 Mar 2013 09:25:44 EST Yo-yo http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5282870 My goal tracker looks like a professional yo-yoer has been messing around. I am really not consistent. I guess that will come with lots and lots of practice. Not much advice or wit today, sorry. Just keep on keeping on!!!! I know that was cheesy, sorry again. <em>20</em> Mon, 11 Mar 2013 17:41:12 EST Refreshed! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5281243 I got up this morning, fixed breakfast, got the kids in the shower, and got myself around, and was getting ready to head out the door for Sunday school and my husband informs me that Sunday school was almost over and we forgot to set our clocks forward. So, we made it to church service on time instead. So, if that doesn't bring a smile to your face: you need to go back to bed and pray before getting up again. Let me tell you that today's service was AWESOME!!!!!! So let me share a tid-bi... Sun, 10 Mar 2013 14:07:08 EST Redemption!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5280379 Well, even though I blew it yesterday (big time), I still lost 7.2 lbs. It must be the decrease in sugar intake. It has been 4 days since I have had a soda pop. That is the only thing I can say has made such a big difference this week, or maybe it is a fluke. I guess we will see next Saturday. Sat, 9 Mar 2013 18:17:28 EST Blew it http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5279257 Totally blew it today. Absolutely ZERO self control. I am very disappointed with myself. Now that I got that out in the open, it is time to start over and do it right!!!! This is a lot more difficult than I thought it would be working over nights and not trying to eat to stay awake. Tonight is my next challenge, I am packing my feed bag full of healthy foods. Go me!!!! <em>386</em> Fri, 8 Mar 2013 18:39:20 EST worked overnight http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5279206 I worked overnight last night....and that was terrible!!!!! Very bad on my new diet. So tonight I will do better. Yes....I have to work all night tonight. So wish me luck! Fri, 8 Mar 2013 17:42:41 EST Starting the day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5277115 To start the I missed my first fast break goal. My alarm went of and wouldn't you know it I hit the snooze button. I am a "give just 5 more minutes" kind of girl; that usually turns into more like 30 minutes. <em>334</em> But, I have to give myself a break. I am only in my first week and new habits are hard to start. So, I believe that I am doing well so far. Keep striving to do my best, and keep self discipline and lots of prayer. And just remember "I can do all things through Chri... Thu, 7 Mar 2013 08:58:07 EST My triumph http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5276606 Tonight at work I picked up a banana muffin off the snack cart......wait for it.......then I put it back!!!! Boredom eating is a very bad habit and so is eating just because the food is there. I was no more hungry than person at thanksgiving dinner. I am so proud of me!!!!!!! Wed, 6 Mar 2013 21:45:45 EST Getting started http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5276066 Getting started is hard, but staying with it is harder. I have my mom who helps me stay focused and I would like to think that I do the same for her. I know I can do this....I have lost 80 lbs before, but gained most of it back. I evidently had a hard time staying with what I knew. This time is going to be different! Wed, 6 Mar 2013 14:25:47 EST
