Down another pound, one at a time, I guess it's better than 1 up. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend Keep strong & do your best to eat right & get in your exercise! <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/0/l906719929.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l1150919982.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Fri, 29 Aug 2014 11:29:46 EST Everybody needs a buddy! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5768918 Slow moving today, can't seem to get real motivated. 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. This has been a great plan, one that has opened my eyes in so many areas that we have decided to go back over them a second time really concentrating on each session. If you ev... 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... Wed, 27 Aug 2014 11:17:42 EST The Scales! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5766592 Ok last Wednesday as part of my goals, challenges, plans whatever you want to call it was to not step on the scales again until this Wednesday! 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. LOL <BR> <BR> Such as exercise time - 1:30 pm Central time - guess I'd better get off this computer & get ready! <BR> <BR> Have a great day! <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/5/l1557105179.jpg"> <BR> Fri, 22 Aug 2014 14:13:57 EST Time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5764326 My goal is to just get it done today, exercise, eat right & doing my sparking. 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. LOL But I'm willing to give it a try, wish me luck. <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeo... Thu, 21 Aug 2014 14:24:52 EST My Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5762112 I missed the weekend of writing in my blog,just ran out of time! 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 ... Mon, 18 Aug 2014 12:06:55 EST Focus - do you? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5760216 Last night my session with my friend as we go through "The Daniel Plan" was right on with my last blog, setting goals. 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> *... Fri, 15 Aug 2014 10:43:58 EST Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5758400 It's kind of sad when you realize no one stopped by your blog to say hi! I guess I need to step it up & be more accountable to writing this blog. <BR> <BR> I'm looking forward to Thursday, when all the school kids go back to school, it will leave me home with only 1-2 little boys, hopefully I can get more done. My plans are to exercise in the mornings after the kids leave for school & not put it off like I usually do, then too tired to do any. I think I will make myself a daily task list wit... Tue, 12 Aug 2014 17:04:44 EST Great day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5756413 Today has been a great day, got up in a positive mood ready for the day. I had a meeting at 9 this morning, then did a couple of errands then back home to do some cleaning along with getting my taxes completed (about time)! Oh & guess I'd better fit in the exercise & eating right as well, LOL <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/6/l1616867992.jpg"> Sat, 9 Aug 2014 15:35:48 EST Busy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5755922 Wow, I can't believe it's been a week since I last wrote in my blog, can you say not enough time for myself? <BR> <BR> I had my granddaughters for the last week (ages 4 & 7), so they kept me real busy. I'm not sure how I use to operate a childcare & work when my kids were younger & still at home. I was really tired every night & just ready to go to bed after I got them in bed. Don't get me wrong, I loved every moment we spent together, they are great kids. <BR> <BR> My friend & myself are...

I wake up every day with the realization that this is it, today is the day, I can do it, that there's only one shot at this life and I can either enjoy the ride and live it to its fullest and to my highest potential or I can stay the way I am. Then I have to make the decision, I can do something - no matter how small - toward accomplishing what I want or set back & do the same ...

I decided to take a moment with the childcare children laying down for their rest period to write it. <BR> <BR> I'm trying hard to make everything work, I'm doing a little better with the exercise this week, just need to get better with the eating. You think just a small bite will be ok, then you don't track it & before you know that small bit has ended up into several small bits. I realize I have to make change... Fri, 25 Jul 2014 15:36:52 EST Tuesday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5744350 Somehow I left Monday off for my blog - I guess that was because I was too tired. I went back to the community center & worked out on all the machine Monday evening. I'm trying really hard to get back in a routine but I can't seem to keep with it. I looked at this week's schedule & realized that it was going to be really busy. I will have to work to find me time for the exercise. I find I have to make a schedule for myself as well as the child cares. I find if you really want to get healthy...

This program called "The Daniel Plan" works on five essentials & last nights was on Faith, we had so many great discussion with it. We left more motivated & ready to go last night than I have left any other program. We didn't focus on our weight at all! I got up this morning, said a prayer to God asking him to please give me the strength to eat right, exercise & have a wonderful day. There was several...

I have six weeks with the study group then I take the plan to my Church to try to get them to do it. <BR> <BR> I found this picture & it really dawned on me what it meant. I have been making the wrong choices for a long time in several areas of my life. So I'm on my new life journey to change my choices, some people will not like the changes I'm about to make with my life. I'm excited since I'm starting a plan tonight that is abo...

It was a very stressful time & I'm really trying to get it back together. He wanted his ashes spread out in the ocean, so we did as he wanted. At times I just want to go away by myself to do nothing. However I always come back to reality, I have to get myself in better health or I will be joining my father a lot sooner than I want to. <BR> <BR> Wednesday...

I can't seem to find enough time for anything lately. But I will not give up! <BR> My sister & I have decided to set a daily goal, that we know we can make to see how this will work, to take one day at a time. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/6/l36283746.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> Fri, 27 Jun 2014 10:04:16 EST Patience http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5723718 I will keep going today, tomorrow & forever! <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l1101317040.jpg"> Sun, 22 Jun 2014 22:49:51 EST You can't catch me! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722929 Today is the first official day of the 5% Summer challenge, did my weigh in & not looking so good. It seems every pound I lose keeps finding me back. I'm going to have to run faster so this time it can't catch me! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/1/l2126816512.jpg"> Sat, 21 Jun 2014 17:07:11 EST Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5722317 I posted these back on 6/12/2014 & really haven't done anything with them. Actually I haven't done much of anything lately, so I really will need to kick myself in gear. I used the idea that the summer challenge didn't start until 6/21/14 - great excuse.

I really need all the help I can get to stay with this! <BR> <BR> I was going to go to the community center last night to work out, yet I never made it! I didn't have my lock with me (great excuse), so I decided I couldn't go. So guess what I did instead? I set at Sonic, ordered a Pineapple cream slush (one with ice cream) & an orde... Wed, 4 Jun 2014 16:02:17 EST Should I start my 14 day challenge over? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5706912 It has been a hard week, I went home to visit my mom after the death of my father. It hit me really hard when I went home & realize he will never be there again. I had no cell phone coverage or internet while I was there so I didn't get to do my sparking - which I missed! <BR> <BR> Ok I made right up to my 14th day before I had chocolate, some say I made it all the way but I'm not sure, since it was the 14 day. My mom gave me an ice cream bar covered in chocolate & before I knew it, I had ta... Fri, 30 May 2014 15:56:19 EST Day 11 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5700003 I can't believe I have made it this far, right now I'm stressed & would really like to have chocolate! Every where I look, all I see is chocolate even my fiber & KIND bars are made with chocolate. However I will resits it, instead I'm eating a oats & caramel fiber bar, it helps a little. This tells me that I am definitely a stress eater because have done very well until today, but I will not give in, only 3 days left. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/7/5/l754456385....

At times I still want the chocolate esp. when I'm up set or board. <BR> <BR> I leave for my Mom's on Thursday, so it will get harder while I'm there since she really likes chocolate . She is so sad lately since we lost my father last month & I know when I leave to come home, it will be very hard. She wants you to eat what she is eating, it makes her feel good. So I will have to be really strong, I c... Tue, 20 May 2014 15:30:11 EST Day 9 of my 14 day challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5698354 Yea still no chocolate - came close a couple of times but I didn't give in. I really don't have the desire right now so hopefully I can keep it up after the 14 days. <BR> <BR> <em>521</em> <BR> <BR> Our Saturday get together was great, the sad part was we only had 4 people totally but we wont' give up. We have decided to meet every month at different locations to try & get people interested in participation, Next month we are meeting for a walk on a Saturday. <BR> <BR> <em>220</em>... Mon, 19 May 2014 11:06:43 EST Day 7 of my 14 day challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5697028 I decided to write my blog now, in case I get too busy today & forget to do it. By writing this down, it helps me be accountable to myself, since everyone who reads will also know if I kept my promise. I promise myself I will not eat chocolate today! <BR> <BR> I have a get together today with one of my local teams, we are trying hard to find a way to get people motivated, however I'm not sure it's working. As of right now, we only have the two of us that started the get together. Everyone ... Sat, 17 May 2014 12:30:46 EST Day 6 of my 14 day challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5696497 Ok, no chocolate at all for 6 days with only 8 days left to go! The weird part is I don't really want chocolate now. I even have it right in front of me & in my draw but I don't eat it or want it like I did. I even made the children hot chocolate today & usually I will sample it but not today! So I really think this 14 day challenge may be a good thing, I can find myself changing. I'm even looking forward to the next one I will set for myself. <BR> <BR> I met with someone at the community ce... Fri, 16 May 2014 15:20:36 EST Day 5 - of my challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5695586 Today starts my 5th day of not eating a single piece of chocolate. The nice part is the desire is not as strong as it was, maybe this will really work. <BR> Today is National Chocolate Chip day & the childcare was having a taste testing of the different types, I think we will just have to have the semisweet ones because if I buy the other ones, I WILL EAT them. They will never know so it will be ok. <BR> <BR> I can do this only 9 days left to go! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.spark... Thu, 15 May 2014 10:24:56 EST Day 4 - No Chocolate! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5695110 So far I'm still making it, no chocolate! I tell everyone I talk to so I can make myself accountable. When my 14 days are over, I'm not sure what will be next. It's suppose to be about making one small change, so instead of giving up something maybe I can make it to doing something - such as getting in certain exercise or even all 8 glasses of water. But I'm getting ahead of myself - I've got to make it through my first 14 days challenge. <BR> <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeo... Wed, 14 May 2014 18:10:28 EST Day 3 - Still No chocolate http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5694132 I have decided to put all chocolate out of site so out of mind! I have made it to day 3 of no chocolate & only have 11 to go, however lots of chewing gum. It helped that I was gone last night & not sitting getting bored. That seems to be when I put that bite into my mouth without even thinking about it. <BR> <BR> <em>493</em> <BR> <BR> I can see how this challenge works because it makes you determined to make it, I can also see why you are to make only one small change at a time. <BR>... Tue, 13 May 2014 11:42:14 EST day 2 - No chocolate! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5693400 I have never wanted chocolate so bad until I make a decision that I can't have it for 14 days & the sad part if - it' s not even something I usually want. <BR> My granddaughter came by last to give me a Mother's day card & what did she <BR> bring me - chocolate candy. It seems to be everywhere & today is only the second day. I should have picked something I wouldn't care about -like giving up shrimp! <BR> <BR> However this challenge came from the Dr. Oz show for the Guide to Getting Unstu...

I was at Sam's club yesterday & they were giving food out to taste & it was a double cookie sandwich sample - I took it, put it in to my mouth & then it dawned on me is was chocolate chip! I was so mad at myself because I just ate it before I gave it a second thought. <BR> <em>495</em> <BR> <BR> When I started this 14 day challenge, I felt for me giving up chocolate wa... Sun, 11 May 2014 16:21:25 EST 14 Days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5690675 As you can see I never made it to write my blog yesterday, it's hard to get back n my routine. I really have to get motivated, since I have several taxes to complete. <BR> <BR> I watched the Dr. Oz show yesterday & it was very interesting. It said to focus on making one small change that you can keep for 14 days - if you only make it to 13 days then you have to start over until you make it 14 days. So I'm trying to figure out what I want to change for 14 days. So after much thought I dec... Thu, 8 May 2014 15:52:20 EST My Loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5689051 It seems like forever since I posted my blog & lots have happened in my life. I lost my step-father a week ago today, I never thought it would be this hard. As I write this blog I'm setting here crying realizing when he went in for surgery he was afraid he wouldn't make it through it, we all tried to reassure him, yet he knew. I pray that I told him how much he meant to me & that he knew I loved him. <BR> <BR> More important I realized we all forget to tell our loved ones how much they m... Tue, 6 May 2014 14:56:25 EST Not feeling it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5681946 Well it looks like I missed Saturday & now it's Sunday night & I really don't feel like doing any blogging. Can't seem to get rid of the head cold, wearing me out! Did make it to Church, got caught in the rain but that's about it for the day! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/5/l851716156.jpg"> Sun, 27 Apr 2014 21:56:22 EST Friday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5680376 Yea for Friday, now I get to spend the weekend working on taxes again! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/9/l198339035.jpg"> Fri, 25 Apr 2014 16:12:59 EST Family http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5679395 It's hard to believe today, 36 years ago my one & only baby boy was born. I can't believe it's been that long ago. It seems like it was just yesterday I was pregnant & couldn't wait until I wasn't anymore after all I was 3 weeks overdue. Then before I knew it, I had the beautiful little baby boy in my arms, never realizing at that time this was to be my last baby! <BR> <BR> I was looking over old pictures & realize how fast our lives pass in front of us. One day I was young, getting marr...

I'm taking really small baby steps but at least it's steps. <BR> <em>311</em> <BR> <BR> However today all I ate was junk food since I was out all day, messed up the whole eating plan. <BR> <BR> <em>486</em> <em>489</em> <BR> <BR> Tomorrow is a new day & I will do better!
