I know I'll drink those, so drink that instead of diet cola. <BR> No drinking in evening. <BR> <BR> I succeeded. Had an apple rather than frozen waffles for breakfast. <BR> I did some picking up. Thu, 19 Dec 2013 09:38:23 EST I wish http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5567836 I will try again. <BR> <BR> Dad died this past August, and I've put on a ton of weight. I haven't exercised, just eaten (mostly sweets) and drunk far too much alcohol, mostly in hopes of stopping the pain. Which has led to more- I'm fatter now, my joints hurt worse, my stomach hurts and I feel a complete failure. <BR> <BR> I'm trying so hard to find the energy- which I don't seem to have- to do anything but sit. I know depression is helped by exercise, but finding the care is difficult. ... Thu, 19 Dec 2013 08:56:47 EST Not sliding back is still progress, right? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5220490 Over Christmas, and still ongoing, there's been a lot of stress. My dad fell and broke his sacrum, and is now in a rehab facility. He hates it and gets more depressed each day. <BR> <BR> My son had to go to the emergency room. It's ok now, though. <BR> <BR> Didn't exercise. Not motivated, didn't care, too stressed out and angry. <BR> <BR> Started feeling better, got back on the wagon again. <BR> <BR> Hadn't gained, at least. So start back off, be more positive. Wed, 23 Jan 2013 17:33:07 EST How are things better? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5163457 Hmm. For Sparkcoach; The pants are a bit less tight. The breasts have shrunk(thank goodness!) and shirts fit better. <BR> <BR> Backslid badly over the past two days; my cousin killed himself on Sunday. All I wanted to do was eat and sleep. I only walked a little on Sunday, and did nothing on Monday, except go to bed early. <BR> <BR> So today I forgave myself for starting to slide into the hole of eating because I hurt, did my walk and am eating better. Even if I want to stuff myself on... Tue, 11 Dec 2012 16:49:00 EST Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5128576 I want to lose 10 lbs by 12/22. I will stretch and exercise 15 minutes a day 4 days a week. I will eat 3 servings of fruit and vegetables daily, 1 of them fresh. I will take 5 minutes a day to daydream. Thu, 8 Nov 2012 14:54:59 EST Moments http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5126014 Well, as of today I've been steady for five weeks. Haven't been able to carve out much time to move, though I keep trying. This is hump time for me, I guess I've never been able to stick beyond 6-8 weeks. Crazy family stuff starts to happen, live falls apart, and I fall back to bad habits. <BR> <BR> And the holidays are coming; but that's not bad, per se. Lots of angsting from family members, but the children love it and that makes it worth all the work, right? The food part isn't reall... Tue, 6 Nov 2012 10:24:50 EST And now trying again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5016566 Well, fell off for a good long time. Going to try some more. Wed, 15 Aug 2012 12:02:57 EST A very bad week, looking hard for the positive http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4681485 Did I say that this has been a bad week? I was praying for it to end by Wednesday. <BR> <BR> My youngest brother is a an adult with autism, disabled. He is also (as far as they can tell) has additional mental health issues. He lives with our parents. They're just down the street so I and one of my sisters can keep an eye on them; both mom and dad are frail healthwise. <BR> <BR> So, Tuesday littlest brother (LB for short) start self injuring- biting himself, banging his head. Mom has to ... Sun, 15 Jan 2012 07:11:55 EST Well, well, well http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4665575 Being tired from exercise (or it's just late) seems to help me with late night snacking. Last night, there were chips and cheese being made, but when I got the kids to bed the only thing I could think of was sleep. Which is good, because elsewise I would probably have put on my glutton hat. Yummy tortilla chips. <BR> <BR> Didn't get a chance to do much exercise, but the fun of friends over was had by all And I can exercise today after church. <BR> <BR> Rambling, but hey, I like to talk ... Sun, 8 Jan 2012 07:43:13 EST keep trying http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4663380 Got sick this week, over ate, then was unhappy with myself so just sat for a day. Got back on track yesterday. It was a pause, not a stop, so it's all good. Pause happens. Sat, 7 Jan 2012 05:31:30 EST harder than I thought http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4651767 It was hard to get out today; impossible yesterday. Kids and husband all but clinging to my ankles- barely was able to do the video for the 28 day challenge yesterday. <BR> <BR> I almost made it impossible today. During my little lull (kids taken care of, husband out of house) I tried very very hard to convince myself that I just deserved to sit. Not even eat; just sit. Actually, it was lunchtime and I didn't want to eat which means I'll be hungry and have too much supper. Those little ... Mon, 2 Jan 2012 16:35:50 EST dealing with anxiety http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4636253 I do like my routine; but this is the time of year when it's all tattered. Hosting Christmas eve, the boy wanting to bake cookies, friends coming over tonight, cleaning...and finding myself more and more anxious that I can't get out to walk or exercise today. So, I will let the bitty cleaning go so I can walk for my hour, and then hustle when I get home. Even if it's Christmas, I deserve a little gift of time to me. <BR> <BR> So there! <BR> <BR> Fri, 23 Dec 2011 14:11:58 EST The goal http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4635124 Well, my goal is because a younger brother of mine bet me that if I could get in shape by the time he gets back from Afghanistan, he would buy me one of those pretty copper pans. I like to cook, and I've coveted them for years. For him? He wanted a mixer...so he borrowed min...and now he's out of the country and my mixer's still there. So I won't miss it if I lose. <BR> <BR> But I don't want to. It also makes me feel a little better about where he is as well as its dangers- if I do thi... Thu, 22 Dec 2011 11:30:47 EST
