It's Friday! I have had a pretty good week over all. I have worked out everyday, and most days I have done at least 2 things. My eating has been pretty good overall, everyday hasn't been perfect, but I am trying not to let that get me down this time. I think I have finally realized that I am not going to lose this weight as fast as I would like too. But I am also not going to let it bring me down. I am loving all the working out I am getting done, I am going to hate it when it gets super... Fri, 17 May 2013 15:11:52 EST May 8, 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5349719 Today I got on the scale and it was up. I am not going to let that derail me this time. Normally I would get depressed about that and binge. I have decided the number on the scale is not going to control me any more. It is time for me to get healthy, for me and my kids. I do not like the way I look and I know I am the only person who can change that. I am going to continue to exercise and try to make healthier eating choices. Here is to my new beginning! Wed, 8 May 2013 11:02:44 EST Day 11 of morning exercise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5319534 Well, so far I have done it! I have gotten up every morning and got in some exercise before work. Tomorrow my daughter is having her tonsils out, her adenoids out and tubes put in her ears. Of course we have to be over tot he surgery center EARLY in the morning. I am not going to be able to get in my morning exercise. I just hope I am not to stressed to still fit it in tomorrow night. I really want to keep up with my streak and I am just afraid even this one change in my routine will throw me... Thu, 11 Apr 2013 10:50:59 EST Wednesday 4/3/13 THE TALK http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5310286 Ok.. I know it is early in April, and I just started working out in the morning... only on day 3 of every day.. but I had to talk myself into getting out of bed this morning! I literally laid in bed for probably 10 minutes and tried to talk myself into not getting up to exercise. I won and did end up getting up and exercising, and of course I was happy I did. But I was thinking wow, I am only on my 3rd day of this and I am already trying to talk myself out of it, that is not good! I think wh... Wed, 3 Apr 2013 14:33:40 EST 40th birthday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5308882 So today is a milestone birthday! the big 4-0. I had a plan to lose 40 pounds by my 40th birthday.... DIDN'T happen..... when I knew that wasn't going to happen I changed the plan to 20 pounds.... DIDN'T happen..... so I changed it again.... also DIDN"T happen. So after starting to read the spark book a friend let me borrow, I decided to take the April challenge and work out in the mornings. I have decided just because I didn't reach any of the goals I had set out too, wasn't going to stop me... Tue, 2 Apr 2013 12:40:18 EST Wednesday 2/13/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5248895 Well I am still down from my original weight but I am up from 2 weeks ago. I seem to be a one week on one week off type of "weight watcher". This is my "ON" week and so far I am doing pretty well. Trying to get more fruit and vegetables in. Pepsi out, Exercise in.... but VERY slowly this time. I did a few crunches on the stability ball last night, and even a few push ups.. I have a LONG way to go lol. Back on track! My sister and I want to get a tattoo together, but our goal was to lose 20 po... Wed, 13 Feb 2013 10:17:05 EST 2/11/13 Monday- AGAIN http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5246444 Ok.. starting today I think I am going to try to start earning some fitness activity. Lord knows I need it <em>46</em> I just can't seem to keep myself motivated to do anything whether it be eating right, or fitness for more than one week at a time. I have GOT to get myself back on track or I will spend another year hating how I look and feel. <em>311</em> plan on walking with the kids today! <BR> Mon, 11 Feb 2013 13:09:02 EST 1/30/13 Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5230288 It has been a week since I started back on this journey, and what a journey it has been. And I mean that in a good way! I haven't really been exercising, but I have been eating good! I am so proud of myself. I have not had a pepsi in a week. And, I went to the mall this weekend and REALLY wanted a cookie or these awesome looking cupcakes, and I left there without having either one! I have even put away a small amount of leftovers instead of just eating them "because it wasn't enough for a mea... Wed, 30 Jan 2013 13:04:44 EST 1/23/13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5220304 It's a new day dawning :) I love that song! well today is my new day. Yesterday it just seemed like I got a lot of signs that it is time for me to really start this, or I guess I should say really CONTINUE this. The last "sign" I got was in a bible study book of mine, it was 1Thessalonians 4:4.... Each of you should learn to control his own body in a way that is holy and honorable..... I have realized that I have not been doing this for a very very long time. I have been reading some very g... Wed, 23 Jan 2013 14:43:44 EST Monday 12/10/12 198.0 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5162026 Well I think I am back to one of the heaviest weights I have been... boy it didn't take long to gain it back when I quit exercising, starting having pepsi all day again AND eating like I just didn't care. HMMM why am I fat again? lol.... Oh I know why, and I know how to stop it... now just to wrap my brain around it! I did start my day with a tall glass of water and an apple, so that is already a plus! I need to get to the store and pick up a few more "healthy" things for me to eat. I am hung... Mon, 10 Dec 2012 10:39:54 EST My new motivational poster http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5159437 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/2/l1212761131.jpg"> Fri, 7 Dec 2012 15:42:42 EST 12/07/12 On again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5159375 On again, off again, on again.. so will this be the "magic" time? I want to be on again and never off again, but I just can't seem to talk myself into it, even when I know how good it feels to be "ON". My sister is starting to catch my weight and she is doing good with her food choices and I am not. Today was my "redo" day, time to be "on again", I am ready to "start over" how long will it last this time? I would like to say forever! But I am sure that won't be the case, but maybe this time I... Fri, 7 Dec 2012 14:20:40 EST 10/18/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5103939 So it has been a few days since I have posted a blog. And to be honest, I am doing really well with my eating and exercising both! And now I have to confess something else.. and I know most people are not going to approve of it :( I went to the Dr on Friday and he prescribed me diet pills. I started taking them on Saturday. I only take one a day... So far I am not really sure if I feel any different or not. I still do not feel like I have more energy like he said I would. I do know that I h... Thu, 18 Oct 2012 15:39:23 EST 10/12/12 and no workout :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5096748 Well, so far so good today... having binged just yet... hopefully I won't tonight either. But I wasn't able to exercise today because I hurt my back... or I am not even sure i would call it my back. it is a muscle in the side of my back. But man it really hurts and I just didn't think trying to exercise would be a good idea. I don't want to hurt it any more, I a, liking being able to work out and I don't want to ruin that. Hope everyone has a great weekend! <BR> Fri, 12 Oct 2012 17:29:10 EST Thursday 10/11/12 Angry at myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5095100 My mornings and afternoons have been fine, but as soon as I hit my door to home, or before.. I have just gone CRAZY on my eating.. WHAT is wrong with me. I want to change my habits so bad.. yet I still am sabotaging myself. And today I started the day out sabotaging it... I had a pepsi..and not a small one either. A HUGE breakfast burrito with bacon and ham, AND a nutty bar.. WHAT is wrong with me.. I FEEL terrible when I eat this way.. but I still do it.. I wish I could just control myself a... Thu, 11 Oct 2012 10:24:29 EST Wednesday 10/10/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5093978 Wellll..... Yesterday was NOT a good day.. I skipped exercise cause I wasn't feeling great... and then.. and then... I over ate... and by over ate, I mean I went on a binge! I ate everything I could get my hands on and then some! But.... today is a new day and I am doing good so far, and I am going to try out a new class at lunch. It is a combination of yoga and pilates I believe. <BR> I went to the Dr. on Monday for a wellness exam for my work insurance. We talked about changing the anxiety... Wed, 10 Oct 2012 12:20:24 EST Monday 10/8/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5091210 SOOOO, it is Monday.. Had a bad weekend... stressful I guess I should say. Kids and husband mainly. I didn't do any exercise. But I didn't think I ate to terrible bad. I know I didn't do "great" but I did ok. Well yesterday I got on the scale and I was NOT happy! I made my daughter come and get it and told her to hide it that I didn't even want to see it again until November. I am going to keep working on it. But today is going to be pretty hard for me I think :( I went today for a wellness c... Mon, 8 Oct 2012 11:46:15 EST 10/5/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5088046 It is finally Friday YEA!!! It is a gloomy rainy COLD day here... and I had no desire to do anything.. but thanks to a friend.. I went and walked 30 minutes on my lunch hour! So I am proud of myself, I actually exercised everyday this week! My weight does not show it, but I know I did it and that is what matters! I plan to do the same next week as well.. hopefully soon the scale will have mercy on me and see how hard I have been working. Have a great weekend everyone! Fri, 5 Oct 2012 14:58:29 EST 10/4/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5086548 I know I know I know that he scale is NOT what matters, and I also know that I really only count my Mondays weigh in.. But man.. it is still is depressing to see the number go up instead of down when you think you are doing everything right... I am still going to class today, I am still eating right (except the pepsi... but I AM tracking it) I know this is only a minor setback it is NOT going to stop me this time! But it sure would be nice to see the number go the direction I want it to go! O... Thu, 4 Oct 2012 12:07:04 EST 10/3/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5084962 So.. Yesterdays class was great! I loved it.. but boy am I feeling it today! My legs are killing me :) And I mean that in a good way! The scale wasn't cooperating with me this morning.. but I am not going to let it bother me. I KNOW that I am doing all the right things. So I am going to just keep doing them and I know that soon the scale will see that I am doing the right things too :) Everyone have a great day! Wed, 3 Oct 2012 09:55:06 EST 10/2/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5083506 Well I am starting October off right. I went home last night and walked with the kids. I even got my husband to walk a lap with me, I didn't walk it fast because he wasn't walking it fast. It made me feel really good to finally have him go with us. We ALL need to get healthier. I told this kids since they were so good getting up this morning that tonight when we got home we could play soccer... I want the kids to WANT to exercise. I am going to try something new today on my lunch hour. I wor... Tue, 2 Oct 2012 09:22:33 EST 10/1/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5081862 Beginning of a new month and I am starting it off right! I lost weight. I am so excited! I had to leave work on Friday cause I didn't feel good. I walked a mile Saturday with the kids, and again on Sunday. I am not feeling great again this morning, but I am going to make it through the day. I am so excited to finally be going in the right direction. I am certain I can do it this time. Happy October! Mon, 1 Oct 2012 09:44:15 EST 9/27/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5076860 Well I am starting this day off crabby... I have pms.. which I am hoping is the reason the scale is showing a weight gain.. but it frustrated me.. and made me crave a pepsi.. so I am having one! BUT.... I have put it on the tracker... I have been tracking... and haven't been perfect with my goals, but haven't been as bad as I used to be. I was just hoping to show some improvement.. I texted my sister first thing and told her I was having a bad morning and she encouraged me to stick with it..... Thu, 27 Sep 2012 09:48:32 EST 9/26/12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5075505 Didn't get a chance to walk last night like I had planned, was to busy cooking supper. And I won't get to walk tonight either because of church... but I do plan to try to get out at lunch for at least a 15 minute walk around campus if it is not raining... Haven't lost any weight, but I am still sticking with this.. I REALLY want it this time! Wed, 26 Sep 2012 09:32:40 EST August 25, 2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5074182 I did it :) I walked like I had planned to do yesterday... Now if I can just keep it up. I had a fairly good day yesterday on my eating as well. Could have done better, but I could have done worse too. I was around brownies, and two different kinds of homemade cookies and all I had was ONE yes count them ONE homemade cookie. I am proud of myself for that. I know it is the little things like that that I need to focus on and not just the bad that I do. So here is to another good day that includ... Tue, 25 Sep 2012 09:49:58 EST September 18, 2012 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5064691 And a new day begins :) I think I may have said this once or twice or two thousand times before! So I am having more fruit, less pepsi and less "bad" for me foods. Forty is just around the corner! Can I do it.. boy I hope so! It sure would be nice to at least see the "normal" range again on my BMI report... I don't really see myself as "obese", overweight, yes, but OBESE come on.. what a horrible word. So I am off to try again... and hopefully this will be my last AGAIN... Only time will tell... Tue, 18 Sep 2012 10:36:15 EST July 30th end of the month, beginning of the journey http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4993305 Well it is a new week and I hit the gym again for a 30 minute bike ride. I have been drinking water all morning and am trying not to snack too much.. boy that is hard to do. The only thing that would make this better is if I had brand new workout shoes :) I love new shoes! Today is another new beginning for me! I CAN do this Mon, 30 Jul 2012 14:33:16 EST July 26th -what happened to the time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4987855 Here it is almost the end of July, and I haven't exercised since the middle of May! Well it HAS been hot... but I have a wii, so that really shouldn't have been an excuse. And now I REALLY shouldn't have excuses. I just started a new job earlier this month and I have full access to a pool, gym, cardio room, weights.. all inside in the air conditioned room! I went yesterday and rode the bike for 20 minutes, and did some other machine that I am not really sure what it was, but I did it for 5 mi... Thu, 26 Jul 2012 12:54:30 EST May 7th- family time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4871093 I did it! I walked... I wanted to take a nap, but instead I got all the kids together, and got the dog and we walked. The 2 middle kids rode scooters and bikes part of the way, and walked the rest. My oldest daughter and I walked the whole way. It was nice to walk as a family. I want to be a good example to my kids, and I want them to grow up trying to be healthy an thinking ice cream and candy is a treat, not a necessity. If I could just get my husband to come with us some.. although he wasn... Mon, 7 May 2012 19:13:36 EST May 6th http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4869549 I did it! It wasn't as far or as long as I have walked before, but I walked! Madisen and I went for a walk with the dog tonight. It was nice to visit and get exercise together, I hope we can continue to do it! We also went to a tea today for the ladies at the church and there was all kids of good foods there.. and I limited myself on what I ate.. I really want it this time! The theme was about inner beauty, but I am really struggling right now with my outer beauty. I don't feel beautiful at... Sun, 6 May 2012 22:15:52 EST May 5th-day 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4867484 Well, last night I took the kids to sonic to get some ice cream. I did not order me any cause I knew the kids would not eat all theirs. I did have a little bit of Kylies. but did NOT eat a whole one myself! And I decided since I had the ice cream last night that I better get up today and walk. So I gathered the kids, and the dog and we went for a walk on the dead end near our house. I didn't walk as long as a normally walk, or as far, but I still walked! I am determined this time to stick wit... Sat, 5 May 2012 10:50:36 EST May 4th- the streak continues :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4866680 Ok... so I walked again today, for the 4th day.. super excited.. My problem is next week, I have stuff to do both on Monday and Tuesday, and I am afraid I will use that as an excuse not to walk... cause it will be too hot or I will be to tired.. I really want to keep this up.. my goal is to lose 20 pounds by the end of July... Not sure if it is realistic or not, but I sure am going to try! I Am down on the scale.. so that makes me happy :) now just to fit into some smaller clothes :) Fri, 4 May 2012 17:24:01 EST May 3rd- 3rd day of walking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4864574 Three days in a row.. YEA me... I walked again today, and not only did I walk.. but I actually jogged a little.. I jogged a couple times in between the light poles. I have seen women bigger than me running, or woman pushing strollers running, so I thought why not??? Why am I not running.. yes it killed my knees, and every part of me jiggled :) but I did it anyway... My only worry is, next week on Monday I will be going on a field trip with Holly so I won't be able to walk that morning, and th... Thu, 3 May 2012 11:21:11 EST Has it been a month already :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4862864 Well, it looks like I let a month go by with no exercise. I started walking again yesterday, what better day than the first of the month right? And even better, I walked today too. Two days in a row! I feel so much better after I walk, I don't know why I let myself fall into the routine of NOT walking. Lord knows I need the exercise! I went shopping yesterday and bought a bunch of fruit to have, now just to eat it! My goal is to have at lease 2 pieces of fruit a day. I didn't do it yesterday,... Wed, 2 May 2012 10:51:47 EST Wednesday and all is well :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4809690 Well... I did so so last week, I went to my Dad and sisters on Thursday for a funeral and ate some good food while I was there.. Also had some pepsi's :( But.. so far this week I have not had one at all! I had a couple drinks of my husbands yesterday but it wasn't even very good! And.. to top it off.. so far I have walked everyday this week! I didn't want to walk today.. but I made myself do it anyway! I am going to be 39 on the 2nd of April and I would like to say by my 40th birthday I will... Wed, 28 Mar 2012 21:35:18 EST Not the best night http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4796589 Well.. I did do much better on the amount of water I drank yesterday vs the amount of pepsi.. and I did fairly well on my eating, until I got home that is! Ugh.. why do I do that...I think I ate everything I could get my hands on last night! Maybe I just need to concentrate on one thing at a time.. and for now it is giving up the pepsi! Then once I can accomplish that, then I can work on giving up my binge eating habits! One day at a time, one day at a time... Tue, 20 Mar 2012 10:31:33 EST Try and Try AGAIN! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4795463 Well, I am back again.. trying to slowly get motivated before summer to lose all this blubber! I weigh almost 200 pounds and my son likes to remind me that I am fat... now why doesn't that motivate me to eat better and exercise to try to get rid of all this? It is that time of year again, you know, the time where it is not to hot, and not to cold to actually exercise outside. The time of year where I really don't have any reason not to be exercising! I can't even use a job as an excuse anymor... Mon, 19 Mar 2012 17:44:39 EST Upcoming weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4095762 Well, I didn't walk yesterday.. and felt bad about it... but I am going to make up for it today and walk on my lunch break.. because I know if I don't do it then it won't get done. We are leaving tonight to head to Arkansas and we won't get there till late. This is going to be a hard weekend on my food. I always eat such good food when I am down there.. and usually too much of it! But not this time! I am going to log my food intake so I will know how much I am getting. I also plan to try to w... Wed, 16 Mar 2011 10:57:07 EST New prospective http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4089560 It is Sunday night at 10 :50 ... I really should be sleeping, but I guess I am not used to the time change yet. I will pay in the morning I am sure~ I had a fairly good weekend, I didn't work out at all, but I did track my food the whole weekend, usually I slack off and don't track. It really put things into prospective about how I got fat... wow.. I used to eat WAY over what I should be. 1500 calories goes quick! I have been going over most days, but not by a lot... and I started to exercis...

I did fairly well all day, even going to the gym and walking for 30 minutes. After I got home and had my dinner and was feeding the baby, my husband came in and said to me "too bad you are on a diet cause I am going to go get some I C E C R E A M ( we have to spell it in our house because we have young kids. I told him thanks but that was ok. ...

I guess I need to start LOOKING for foods that have a higher amount of fiber in them. Any good suggestions anyone? Wed, 9 Mar 2011 13:55:39 EST I did it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4057025 I joined our small community gym again.. with intentions of actually going this time! <em>30</em> I signed up yesterday AND walked for 20 minutes... My niece moved back from Kansas and we decided we would exchange babysitting duties so that we could each go to the gym and work out! My plan now is to actually start walking, or biking at the gym and eventually add some weight lifting in. I did NOT want to go yesterday because I was so tired.. but I went and walked.. I felt so good when I got d...

Had a stressful day yesterday.. so what did I do.. ate... brownies, meatloaf, LOTS of potatoes, not one but TWO candy bars, pepsi... it just kept going and going.. and guess what.. The crappy eating continued into today!

Wed, 17 Nov 2010 10:50:13 EST Bad days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3787564 Why can I always seem to find an excuse to eat?? Well yesterday I ate everything in sight and I mean everything... I even ate candybars... and that damn granola... that granola has been my downfall! Is it still good for you when you eat a huge bowl all at once?? Starting over today as if it is a brand new start!

Tue, 16 Nov 2010 11:05:02 EST Stressed should not equal binging! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3779651 Well, here it is Friday, I should be down at least a pound or more... but no, instead I have gone up a pound. My husbands truck, the one he drives to make a living, is broke.... and I mean broke good! The engine is apart in lots of pieces. It is going to cost us around $10,000 to fix it.... and I have no idea where we are going to come up with the money. If we max out the 2 credit cards we have (which we are close to anyway) get all the money we have in savings, and cash in my kids savings b... Fri, 12 Nov 2010 13:31:11 EST Bad day :( http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3774765 Well, I didn't do what I said I was going to do yesterday... therefore I didn't get any exercise in at all.... AND to make it worse... I binged last night! I ate a little bit of everything there was it seemed. I really have no explanation for why I did that, and am very disappointed in myself for doing it, but I am going to move on, today is a new day! And to be honest, I am not sure I will get in any exercise today either.. for some reason I am still not feeling 100%, don't know if it is str...

Thinking I need to have a HUGE sale...Anyone need anything LOL... <BR> <BR> Today was my official weigh day, and I am down 3.2 pounds since last week. However, I have really wanted to snack today for some reason! I think tonight I am just going to have a salad with fat free dressing and maybe some fruit! I have GOT to keep up with this weight loss and not go back to my old ways! I am so ... Tue, 9 Nov 2010 16:38:48 EST Good news- Bad news http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3770601 Well, I had a great weekend, Kylie, my youngest was baptised... had family in for that, that is always fun~ And Thanks to my mother in law I had a chance to go for a walk by myself! That was so nice!~ I am almost always pushing a stroller! Well, I did take the dog, which ended up not such a good idea, cause she kept getting stickers in her feet that I would have to stop and pick them out. I ate sensibly this weekend. The best news is... I LOST weight.. YEA!!!!! <BR> <BR> Now the bad news..... Mon, 8 Nov 2010 14:39:08 EST
