I'm trying to stay motivated but it's a lot easier to just set here at the computer & say I'm going to do it! Then the day has passed & I still haven't accomplished anything! So I will get up now & go do my exercise video! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photosaws.sparkpeople.com/guid/82bb505c-ce93-4a35-a6c7-e74031384a31.jpg"> Wed, 26 Aug 2015 14:37:18 EST One day at a Time! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5984830 Yea made it to the community center! Even went for a little walk in the afternoon, now get the eating right! One day at a time! <em>315</em> Tue, 25 Aug 2015 23:07:27 EST It Is What It Is! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5983916 As you can tell by the date, I still don't have it together, I'm not sure if I ever will. So it is what it is for the time being, I'm not going to stress out because I can't follow with "ME" time. Plans are to go to the gym after dropping off kids at school tomorrow, we'll see. Mon, 24 Aug 2015 14:33:45 EST Another One! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5958144 Wrote the first blog - loss it! It was very good, lots of good reasoning however not enough time to write another. Basically I'm tired of yo-yo dieting! I don't have an answer to why I can't get it together! However, I will not give up! Thu, 9 Jul 2015 14:38:52 EST I want to do this! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5957678 As I write this I realize that if I really wanted it, I would follow through on the steps I need to take. Why can't I stay on the right track, why do I regain the weight every time, why can't I get it together? I really do't have the answer to these questions, so my goal is this time is find out why I keep gaining back the weight? One day - one step at a time! Wed, 8 Jul 2015 18:33:48 EST Stressed! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5868757 I'm working on saying positive things every day but I'm having a little trouble getting it all together. I get really stressed lately, I know it's because of everything I have going on in my life but I have to find away to deal with it. I can't seem to find time or energy to exercise, eat foods without even thinking! I can't keep this up - I need help! <BR> <BR> I don't do yoga, I really wish I did. <em>414</em> <BR> <BR> I try the deep breathing but it doesn't work, my brain won't shu... Tue, 3 Feb 2015 15:03:10 EST Positive Thinking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5867209 So far this year has not really been going good, Mo sick & in the hospital, Mother-in-law same thing, sister & sister-in-law both health problems then I have to stop & think about everything & realize it could be a lot worse. so my goal for myself is to start working on all the positives. I even made the decision to tell my husband at least something positive every day (which is hard for me to do, lol) Wish me luck! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/5/l754616897.jpg"... Sun, 1 Feb 2015 14:32:48 EST Great day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5854966 Yesterday went great, got up, took the kids to school & then went to the community center to workout, loved it. I could get use to this part about not having childcare kids during the day - the only problem is, "Money". Oh well we can do it, just change the way we spend money & the good point is now is the time I make a little extra with doing taxes. Never know how many clients I will have from year to year, this is a very competitive market since most people only care about how much they ha... Thu, 15 Jan 2015 10:20:18 EST Life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5853558 Wow, it's been a long time since I posted a blog or even got on SparkPeople. Life has been busy &a little crazy, I haven't' had time for anything. My mom was visiting for the last 3 weeks, so I made sure all my free time was spent with her. We took her home to Texas on Saturday & Monday she ended up in the hospital with double pneumonia & I can't even talk to her yet. She did really good here but the cold wet weather we were in during the travel did her in, since she has stage 4 COPD. All I c... Tue, 13 Jan 2015 13:48:37 EST Thursday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5827554 It seems like I run out of time every day before I get everything done, I think I must really waste my time, probably being on the computer. LOL <BR> <BR> Last night I was really tired & just went to bed after work, took a short note then got up & had some soup, then back to bed. Today I feel much better more energy & ready to "clean" & decorate the house. I'm tired of all the "junk" I have accumulated over the years, ready to clean it out & hopefully make some money in the process. <BR> <... Thu, 4 Dec 2014 12:04:41 EST Monday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5825727 Ok, first I would like to say "THANK YOU" to everyone that stopped by & took the time to leave me a comment on my last blog. Some were really long, so I know it took you some time to comment & all had wonderful advice but the best advice I got was just knowing you took the time give me some encouragement. <BR> <BR> I just got back from visiting my Mom & saw how much her health as deteriorated & realize that will be me if I don't make changes. I see her giving up & not wanting to even tryin... Mon, 1 Dec 2014 10:34:27 EST Why can't I get it? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5822793 Once again it has been several days since I last posted a blog, for some reason I think if I don't write about it then I don't have to worry about it. Wrong, the weight just keeps going the wrong way no matter what I do & if I don't get it under control, I'm really not going to like what the doctors says next. She said very clearly, if I continue the way I am, next blood test is going to be dropping the word "PRE" off from diabetic. <BR> <BR> I've tried the challenge teams, they haven't wo... Tue, 25 Nov 2014 11:57:32 EST Life http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5820230 Life isn't getting any easier, it seems like I never have enough time to do the things I want to do by the time I do the things I have to do. Somehow I need to learn how to organize my time to do the best I can to fit in everything. I can even seem to fin d time to exercise, however, I know if it was high on my list I would find a way. Judging by the way my weight is going up, I have to figure this out. The eating is ok but the exercise is not as good as it should be. I think at this point in... Thu, 20 Nov 2014 17:04:54 EST Life Changes http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5816750 I hate it when I can't seem to find time to do the things I really want to do & I know they will benefit me! Why is it we can find time for everyone but ourselves? I have not even had time to get on Spark to do what I really want to do. <BR> <BR> My mom has been very ill the last few weeks & was told she had Stage 4 COPD & A Fib with her heart. She is taking it very hard & keeps asking , "Why does God keep dumping on me?" I try to tell her she needs to have strengthen & believe that God does... Fri, 14 Nov 2014 12:38:28 EST Wednesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5807002 Ok I had another long weekend of being out of town, it's really hard to find time to do your sparking when you are away from your computer, phone apps & I pad apps are not quite as good. Good news is I have been able to find time to exercise, maybe even more walking & eating pretty good. Home is harder for me to eat right than being out of town, I'm not sure why. I can't believe how close Christmas is & I really wanted at least 10 pounds gone by then,not working as well as I hoped it would.... Wed, 29 Oct 2014 13:40:38 EST Good Night http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5803672 Did you have a good day? I hope so! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/2/l827615421.jpg"> Thu, 23 Oct 2014 23:32:45 EST Dash http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802868 I have started reading all I can find about the "DASH" diet, it was recommend by a doctor for people with pre-diabetics, high blood pressure & wanting to lower their cholesterol. So I thought what the heck, I think I have read every other diet out there & even tried some of them, so I figure what do I have to lose but weight! It really doesn't seem to hard to give it a try, the first two weeks may be the hardest but after that it really seems like a normal diet. They stress to not miss any m... Wed, 22 Oct 2014 14:21:32 EST Trying http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5802434 Trying to get it together, not really working - not enough time in the day to get it all done. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/2/l1261093801.jpg"> <BR> Tue, 21 Oct 2014 22:07:38 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5789839 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/9/l1958614792.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> Went to the Thyroid Dt. today, didn't learn much, she took some blood (surprising right), I'll just wait for the results. She did tell me to exercise at least 30 minutes a day even if only 10 minutes at a time & do it a the same level I did on my stress test. The good news is she didn't suggest taking any other medicine, just eat right & exercise. So now I really got to take it up a notch if I want to get m... Tue, 30 Sep 2014 15:31:16 EST Clean http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5789104 I have been out of town for the last week after getting out of the hospital the week before, so things have not been quite normal lately. <BR> <BR> So for today, I'm going to concentrate on getting back in the groove. First I have to clean up the mess my husband left for me to finish. I operate a small in home childcare & he decided to clean the kitchen area & clean out all the cabinets while I was gone. Not good! He took everything out of cabinets & pantry & left it in sacks for me to put ... Mon, 29 Sep 2014 13:15:11 EST Love the help from Spark People http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5785391 Ok, so I still can't seem to get it all together, do good one moment then quit & get lazy. If you have been told you must make changes to your lifestyle or else, you would think you would get it together. It's a lot harder than you think, easy for Doctors to tell you what needs to be done but not easy to do it. <BR> <BR> Walked one mile yesterday, one today so far, however, I need to do more every day. They want at least 15-30(prefer this) minutes every day & then watch my cholesterol, ... Tue, 23 Sep 2014 10:38:57 EST Clean http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5784801 I have found out how hard it is when you have NO TV, NO Phone, NO Internet, NO Computer! So many things revolve around my life have to do with the internet & the computer, so what did I do instead -CLEAN! Good news, it counts as exercise! <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/6/l1691009940.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Mon, 22 Sep 2014 13:58:13 EST Wake up Call http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5783646 As you can tell it's been a while since I last posted a blog, well that's because I ended up in the hospital last Wednesday. I woke up out in the middle of the night with what I would say was that picture of an Elephant setting on your chest & couldn't breath. I tried something for indigestion ( which is typical for women) & tried the baby aspirin but it just wouldn't go away. I just had a feeling something was wrong, so I decided to have it checked out. <BR> <BR> We went in & believe me I ...

It was a fairly good day here, didn't get as much done as I wanted but that's ok, I have tomorrow to get it done. My goal for tomorrow is to get in at least 1.5 to 2 miles in somehow, may be at the community center. I will take one day at a time & not stress anymore when I didn't' accomplish everything I had planned. <BR> <BR> Life is what we make of it, go too fast & we will miss all the little thin... Mon, 15 Sep 2014 23:31:07 EST 5K Can I? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5779820 We all need goals with our plans on getting healthy, losing weight or even when it comes to our finances. <BR> <BR> Begin with simple goals that make you feel good. Start by walking or jogging at a pace that feels comfortable. There are even apps to help you condition and get from the couch to your first 5K. I'm walking a 5K on this Saturday with my Church, I told everyone I may be the last one in but I will do it! <BR> <BR> * one called workout trainer <BR> <BR> * RockMyRun <BR> <BR> * ...

Now it's time to do my computer work with Spark & preparing 3 people's taxes, including my own. So back to work for me. <BR> <BR> I hope everyone has a great weekend! <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/1/l911700665.jpg"> Sat, 13 Sep 2014 19:31:01 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5778838 Yea, it's Friday - ready for the weekend. Don't have a lot of words in my mind tonight, computer shut down on me earlier due to a power outages & I lost everything I was working on.

The problem is, they didn't even know what they said or did that bothered me, so the only person that it affected was "ME". I thought I was getting better at handling these things & not take them personally. Instead I didn't do any of the things I wanted to do, I ate too much & didn't do all the exercise that I had planned. I even ended up with a stomach issue & not feeling goo...

Just finished my walk with the kids again, we took the long way around, my grandson ask if we were ever going to get to my house. He said we were lost,that it was taken forever.

I love the cool weather we are having in the mornings. <BR> <BR> I have been reading lots of blogs & find I see my self in several of them, which tells me ultimately several of us have the same problems with getting our healthy life changes going. Most of us know what to do & even how to do it but we don't do it, so the big question is, "Why don't we do it...

My husband & I got up, went for a 2 mile walk, came back set out on the deck eating breakfast together just relaxing.

This program has woke up so many areas in my life, that I can't believe the changes I'm feeling with in, all I want is more of the good feeling. I have learned so much & we have decided to retake each session & really focus more on the changes we have made & will continue to make. Below are some of the thoughts from last nights session. If you ever get a chance I would encourage you to give this program a try... Thu, 4 Sep 2014 12:31:07 EST Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5772696 Had a great workout last night even though my friend back out on me at the last minute. So glad I made the decision to go anyway, I felt lots better. Today my exercise will be one of the Richard Simmons DVD's & then I have my meeting tonight with The Daniel Plan. I'm trying hard to stay focused on the big picture, my goal is one day & one pound at a time! <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/9/l1932470281.jpg"> Wed, 3 Sep 2014 14:24:43 EST Exercise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5772027 Going to the community center tonight - yea!

School kids were home thanks to a water pipe break at school & not having water. We did a little exercise but otherwise not much going on today. <BR> <BR> Last night's meeting was great with The Daniel Plan - it was on friends & how important they are to your life.

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 19:40:06 EST Let Down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5768029 I got on the scales today for the first time in a week & was a little disappointed - no loss however no gain. For myself I found I can give up the scales - it is being removed from my bathroom, it will no longer have any hold on me. I never knew they had such a strong hold on me, where I really wanted to get on them to see what I weighed & then when I did, I felt a let down. Almost like a personal hurt feeling - really from stepping on a scale! Once a week for me to weigh is enough, now I wi...

I never knew how hard that was going to be! I never knew I was that addicted to stepping on the scales! At first I was going to just put them out of sight & then I decided that wasn't really a challenge for me because I wouldn't see them so I wouldn't have to step on them, so I left them out in my bathroom. <BR> I can say every day since Wednesday ... Mon, 25 Aug 2014 09:11:16 EST Can I? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5764980 I have been writing down my daily goals, task, jobs what ever you want to call them however now I'm adding in a time beside them . Maybe this way I can actual get something done instead of saying I'm going to do it.

I'm suppose to write my daily task & now list times that I'm going to do it. So I can't just say I'm going to exercise but what time of the day I'm going to do, like making an appointment with myself. This might be a little harder for me, since in childcare the children sometimes dictate how your day is going.

I've been busy doing lots of hard cleaning at my house, part of my goals is to get each room in my house cleaned & organized no matter how long it takes me, that means moving furniture, cleaning closets, vacuuming floors & ceiling, all "CLEANING"! It took me all day Saturday to just do one bedroom & it's still not finished! Now I'm not saying my house is "dirty" but definitely clutter with operating three different business out ...

The session was actually called "Focus". It was probably one of the biggest eye opens I have gone through yet with this program, to the point we have decided to repeat it next week giving us time to reflect & set some goals. I'm going to list some of the things that really hit me, so take your time to read them to see how they might impact you on your journey. <BR> <BR> *...
