It feels like I go non-stop all day. I hit the gym after work. By the time I make it home and finish with dinner there doesn't seem to be any down time. While I am busy all day by the time I go to bed I feel proud of myself for all the effort I have put into the day.

Fri, 7 May 2010 08:39:38 EST Keeping me motivated http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3190765 The extra measurements spark does is helping me stay motivated.

Mon, 3 May 2010 19:42:56 EST Still on track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3130428 Another week gone. Very little progress. Try to stay motivated though. Sat, 17 Apr 2010 16:57:02 EST So far so good. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3111423 Right now I have a lot of stress on me. I am waiting to hear back from graduate school. Everyday after I check the mailbox and do not have a letter I want to go hide in a tub of ice cream and chocolate. But I'm not. I have been walking my @ss off though. Trying to channel things in a more positive way. I am very tired though. I may be over doing it just a hair. Mon, 12 Apr 2010 18:35:09 EST Went a little over http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3101238 Been doing good this past week about staying under my max calories. Been getting out and walking almost everyday. Did go over my max today by about 200. All and all I feel good about what I have accomplished this week in terms of starting to live a more healthy lifestyle. <BR> Fri, 9 Apr 2010 22:07:44 EST Good for me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3084321 For the first time in a while I motivated myself to go for a walk after work <BR> . <em>250</em> Mon, 5 Apr 2010 21:04:53 EST Dieting makes me too angry!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3078923 I think I do good. Make the right choices. No butter, pouched and not fried. No potatoes, fruit please. May I have wheat bread instead. But then I enter me food and suck I ate too much. Okay so I will skip my snack and things will even out. SUCK now I'm hungry. <BR> <BR> I just won't to dive into a big bucket of brownies and ice cream. <em>28</em> Sun, 4 Apr 2010 13:34:00 EST I don't deserve food!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3074007 I hate dieting!! I do good all week and stay within my calorie range and what does the freakin scale do to me? Frick! <BR> <BR> Fri, 2 Apr 2010 18:39:15 EST Half way back on track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3066627 One day down eatting right. <BR> <BR> Next step day two. <BR> <BR> Got to try and exercise though. One step at a time. Don't want to get too frustrated. Wed, 31 Mar 2010 20:11:21 EST Time to start again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3059731 Its time to suck it up.

Tue, 30 Mar 2010 08:26:20 EST Needing motivation http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3050178 I am having problems staying motivated. I am not doing well at tracking my food and I can tell it on the scale. <BR> <BR> I just get so depressed having to watch what I eat. <BR> <BR> I need to exercise more as well but with work yoyoing like it does makes it very hard. <BR> It is frustrating getting into a routine and then being knocked off that routine by a 12 hour work day. Sat, 27 Mar 2010 18:07:47 EST Stuffed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2165387 I am so full. I ate too much pizza and went over my calories for the day. I made the mistake of eatting before lookeing. Had no clue about the calories per slice. It was more than I am use to. Fri, 19 Jun 2009 21:47:24 EST Laura is Tired http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2154718 I am back on track lossing weight but I am staying tired all the time. I want to get out and exercise but I never have the energy. <BR> <BR> Work is VERY busy and I can not seem to catch a break. Everytime it looks like I am catching up at work something goes wrong. Is going to work and putting in only eight hours too much to ask. <BR> <BR> Well I'm headed out for work. Showing up early again. Tue, 16 Jun 2009 08:11:39 EST Laura is pissed http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2063967 Yet another week of spark people and another pound GAINED!!!. <em>28</em> <BR> <BR> I am back to where I started from 1.5 months ago. I can take no losing weight. I don't have that much to eat. What is bothering me is I am eating +/- 100 coals of my lower limit and gaining weight. My lower limit is 1200. The main thing that has kept my motivation up is the thought of adding a little extra calories in my diet to maintain. <BR> <BR> It looks like to stay at 15lbs short of my goal I wi... Fri, 15 May 2009 08:12:51 EST Weigh in http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2044507 I am upset. I weighed in this morning and I have gained 1.5lbs. It would not be so upsetting if withing this past week I hadn't added exercise to my daily routine. <BR> <BR> I know I have been going easy but that is so I will not burn out. Fri, 8 May 2009 08:32:34 EST Day 5 and 6 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2043341 I'm on a role and feeling good. <BR> <BR> <BR> http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_<BR>messageboard_thread.asp?board=11167x32<BR>580x25317464 Thu, 7 May 2009 19:52:52 EST Day 3 and 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2039938 I finished day 3 and 4. Each done on their specified day of course. <BR> <BR> It was extra hard today though. I am so sleepy. <BR> <BR> I am doing what I can in good form. <em>198</em> Wed, 6 May 2009 18:49:33 EST Day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2033330 I completed day 2 bootcamp challenge.

I felt so uncoordinated and ashamed with how hard it was. <BR> <BR> Its time for me to get into shape. Sun, 3 May 2009 18:47:38 EST My motivational quote http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2025613 Laziness is a habit of resting before you are tired. Sat, 2 May 2009 13:32:17 EST Keeping it up http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2006245 I am doing well on my diet so far. I have been staying in my calorie range and I am still lossing weight. <BR> <BR> I am not exercising though. I am staying so tired all the time. When I start working out I just crash. Last time I tired working out all I was doing was walking at a moderate pass 15-20 min in the morning and 15-20 min during lunch at work. I crashed. I was only able to keep it up for four days. Sat, 25 Apr 2009 22:10:05 EST Weekly weight in http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1860785 I am doing well so far on my diet. I weighted in today lost 1.8 lbs!!! <BR> <BR> I am also doing well with not staying too hungry. Sun, 8 Mar 2009 16:26:50 EST Exercise http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1859137 I can never figure out when I should exercise and when I shouldn't. Am I tired because I need to exercise or do I need to exercise because I'm tired? <BR> <BR> Well I did not exercise any today but I Have been exercising more this week than normal. I'll keep that pace up for a while and then in a month or so add some more and see where I am then. Sat, 7 Mar 2009 20:58:31 EST Off to a good start http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1805450 I did pilates this morning and I ate a good breakfast. I still have some exercise I want to do but I'm sure I can make myself do it this evening <BR> Tue, 17 Feb 2009 09:26:48 EST Out to eat http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1803706 I met my family today. While we were hanging out we ended going out to eat twice. I ate under 200 cal for breakfast and under 400 for lunch. That leaves me with over 600 for the rest of the evening. I am proud that I did not indulge my sweet tooth at olive garden with the black tie moose cake (my favorite restaurant dessert). Mon, 16 Feb 2009 16:54:27 EST Exercised http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1798747 I always find it hardest to work out after coming home from work but today I was able to do it.
