That's why I keep coming on this site. I'll get it back. <BR> I know I can do this! Wed, 28 Aug 2013 08:55:49 EST Frustrated and Disgusted http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5467484 I was feeling okay yesterday and then I went into a downward spiral of epic proportions. <BR> I binged ate so much that I did not sleep all night and still feel sick to my stomach this morning. <BR> I feel just gross! <BR> <BR> I do have some stress going on that I won't get into here, but no excuse for why I do this to myself. <BR> <BR> Arrrggghh <BR> <BR> Tue, 27 Aug 2013 05:13:33 EST August 26, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5466984 I made it through the nights and I'm on my days off. <BR> Still feeling low energy, but I'm trying. Mon, 26 Aug 2013 15:45:33 EST August 25, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5465857 Last night shift then days off. <BR> YAY!

Sitting all day tends to make me feel more tired than working on my feet. <BR> Anyway, I've got to get stepping before I can relax. Wed, 21 Aug 2013 18:23:59 EST August 20, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5460863 Last day off and so much to do. <BR> First on the list is to get a new battery for my fitbit. I've been without it for a few days now and I miss it!!

Thu, 20 Jun 2013 12:39:51 EST June 19, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5395164 I've slipped a little, but not completely. <BR> Still getting my steps and organizing my house, but hubby and I took a much needed mini vacation and had a fabulous time! <BR> Wed, 19 Jun 2013 12:08:43 EST June 14, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5388706 Yesterday I got a pathetic 2800 steps. <BR> <BR> BUT <BR> <BR> I cleaned and organized the home office which has been bugging me for a long time. It took all day and was very tedious.... <BR> <BR> Today, I'm going to go for double my daily goal of 11000 steps and try to get to 22000 - I even got up early to get a head start! Fri, 14 Jun 2013 06:53:43 EST June 13, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5388139 I'm still working on the whole organizing thing. My home office has been a challenge for sure. I've got a garbage bag full of shredded documents and I've been at it all day! <BR> <BR> Not so good for my step count, but I'll work on that later. <BR> <em>41</em> Thu, 13 Jun 2013 14:54:25 EST June 12, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5387045 Meh - Still not feeling it.

I made it to 11000 steps, but it's early to bed for me again! <BR> I get to sleep in tomorrow though - can't wait. Sun, 9 Jun 2013 19:29:39 EST June 8, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5382720 Another long day at work and another struggle to get to 11000 steps. <BR> <BR> I've got 10 to go and I will get them on my way to bed! <BR> Sat, 8 Jun 2013 19:02:54 EST June 7, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5381837 I had to work a long day today and it was all I could do to get 11000 steps. <BR> <BR> But, <BR> <BR> <BR> I did it!

Thu, 6 Jun 2013 11:08:31 EST June 5, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5378783 Today I'm going to play softball with some co-workers. <BR> Haven't played in years, so I'm nervous, but it will be exercise. <BR> <BR> Still working on the home office for organization. Paper work is so tedious to go through! Wed, 5 Jun 2013 08:01:22 EST June 4, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5377753 TBH - I'm struggling today. I just want to go back to bed, but the sun is finally shining and it would be a great day to go walk outside for a change. <BR> <BR> I'm working on organizing our home office today. I want to get rid of as many papers as I can. Tue, 4 Jun 2013 09:55:53 EST June 3, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5376836 Household organizing - Day 3 <BR> <BR> Today I'm going after my night stand drawer and possibly my bedroom closet. <BR> Mon, 3 Jun 2013 13:51:58 EST
