COSIMRA1's SparkPeople Blog COSIMRA1's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Every time... I was doing great for being on track for my weight loss. I really was. <BR> Then life decided to get in the way and my weight loss stopped. <BR> <BR> I am 6 weeks pregnant. Very unexpected. <BR> <BR> My doctor is okay with my eating plan continuing on how I have been, and for now, i'm cleared for continuing to exercise so. I can't do as much as I was, and if I end up having issues again, then everything will change. <BR> For now though, I keep eating in my new way, and keeping up with mode... Mon, 15 Apr 2013 14:44:12 EST The great walk Well, i can say i definitely got my activity in. <BR> couch to 5k day1 <BR> Went for an unintended four hour walk <BR> Got home and did 30day shred level 1 <BR> <BR> Still not sure why I did that last part, but I am glad I did. Now, I am tired and off to bed. Working nights sucks sometimes Sun, 24 Mar 2013 09:01:39 EST NTC and kids I decided to try NTC today. I did the sweat + shape. <BR> It was AWEOME <BR> <BR> Now, having my two boys ( 2 and almost1) try to help mommy by taking off with my iPad was fun, but hey, chasing them around the house can count as extra cardio right? <em>30</em> I have to admit, we looked silly; junior running away with my iPad, me chasing him, and Sprout crawling after us as fast as he could. I think the cats and dog thought we'd gone nuts. <BR> <BR> Logistically though, I'm realizing ... Tue, 19 Mar 2013 16:26:04 EST well, that was unexpected I have to start out with the positive. I did a lot better with the news than I would have even a couple weeks ago. I didn't over react, and I didn't turn to food to smother my worry in chocolate and sugar, or something deep fried. This is a huge improvement. <BR> <BR> But it still sucks. <BR> <BR> My eyesight has been getting crummier for a while now, and it was finally in the budget to get my eyes checked. I figured it was just that I needed a different prescription for my glasses. <BR>... Sun, 17 Mar 2013 10:17:26 EST :) I'm Baaaaack. Again. <BR> <BR> Life's certainly had a strange sense of humor since i started this spark people journey. I started with my first blog post back in 09. I had 1 lovely little girl who I was determined to change my life for. <BR> <BR> and I like to think that I have made some huge changes in life so far. <BR> <BR> We certainly eat healthier than we did then. And we're a lot more active. But, I also haven't met the goals, realistic or not, that i set for myself. 2 high risk... Tue, 12 Mar 2013 06:25:15 EST Goals and other assorted rambling. I I'm taking part in the BLC #11 for 20 somethings with 100+ pounds to lose.. and part of our weekly challenge is to set out goals. <BR> Since I can type them out here and be able to look at them daily, i thought here might be a good place for them to go. here's hoping... <BR> <BR> Long term goals: Well, eventually I plan on losing 125-130 pounds. I want to be healthier, and set a good example for my kids. I want to break the cycle of bad food habits that i grew up with. Eating does solve emo... Sat, 16 Jul 2011 09:06:28 EST *Sigh* Well, that sucked. i collapsed at work Friday night and was rushed to emerg. found out that my gallbladder decided it was time to vacate the premesis, and of course they couln't do the surgery until they got me stablized. <BR> Yay is for medicallu induced unconciousness from saturday until the suregery on Tuesday. <BR> I hyst have to say, morAnyways,mphine is a fun drug, that apparently provided me with really messed up dreams. <BR> that and why the heck do these things happen each time I ... Wed, 1 Jun 2011 12:00:37 EST Thorns are sharp Yes, thorns are sharp. <BR> Especially great big, raspberry thorns that are stabbing through a gardening glove while you're attempting to remove a wild raspberry path from a terraced garden. <BR> Ow. <BR> Spent a lot of time this week working on he gardens around the house. I didn't realize when we moved in in Nov. just how overgrown everything was. It took me a full day to pull all the weeds, and raspberries out of two of the terraced gardens by the back of the house. That sucked. And i ... Sun, 15 May 2011 18:24:02 EST Where did that come from?? This has been a difficult week. I haven't met my calorie goals yet. I've been over them every day this week by 500-1000 each day. I eat, and feel full, so I stop. Then I start craving, and its like there's this big black hole that is calling for sweets, and salty things.. chips and chocolate specifically. And I give in. Need to work on that. <BR> Blech. <BR> Must remember to get rid of the junk I keep finding stashed all over the house. I really hadn't realized it was that bad. I'm finding ... Tue, 10 May 2011 10:56:39 EST Goals I've been thinking about goals recently. <BR> And I've realized something.. I need to have a less nebulous goal than just "lose weight" or "be healthier". <BR> Don't get me wrong, I think those are great goals. But what do they really mean? <BR> Well, each of those goals can be broken down into a bunch of littler goals. "lose 10 pounds", "track everything I eat" "go for a walk every day".. things like that. Things that don't seem so far away right now. <BR> <BR> so that's what I'm going t... Thu, 5 May 2011 13:04:06 EST Right, so life threw a few curveballs... So it's been a while. <BR> What happened? Well, a few things actually.. <BR> The thing that initially sent me spirialling off.. is the hardest thing i've ever had to deal with. Three weeks after my last post, on Sept 26, 2009, my mother decided that she couldn't attend my daughter's birthday party because she was feeling down,a nd didn't want to ruin <BR> the day for others - seriously, I love that that was the message she sent in her text letting me know she wasn't coming\ true irony there... Tue, 3 May 2011 08:42:32 EST So far so good... I decided when starting this that I was going to take baby steps. For me, this journey is about completely changing my lifestyle, and I know that if iwere to tackle everything all at once, that I would get overwhelmed and stop. <BR> I can't afford to do that. <BR> So I broke down my lifestyle into the two sections that must change. How I eat, and my activity level. <BR> Over the past month, I've tackled the way I eat. <BR> I used to eat only fast food/prepackaged/deepfried/over processed c... Tue, 1 Sep 2009 10:05:48 EST Ramblings I sit here and watch as my daughter crawls around the house. <BR> I watch her play with her cousins, <BR> I realize how much I love her. <BR> She is my reason for being. She my motivation. she is everything. <BR> I never realized I could love someone as much as I love her. <BR> I never realized how much such a small person could motivate me. <BR> My goal? To learn to live healthy. I'm currently 320lbs and 5'5. I want to be under 200. <BR> I never have been healthy. i realize that now. ... Fri, 31 Jul 2009 09:10:10 EST
