Well, my computer for some reason refused to display and the mobile site on my tablet isn't the best. So I didn't get on. I can say this I gain a bit around Thanksgiving, but I lost it. Then came the last three weeks of December. The store where I work stayed opened till Midnight. So it messed up my entire schedule. I'm still trying to get back into the swing of things. I did some bad things, not only just over eating(which I did), but I also h... Sat, 2 Jan 2016 20:02:56 EST A New Road - Day 18 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6034802 I didn't track yesterday, but I did walk for 30 mins. <BR> <BR> Thu, 19 Nov 2015 15:08:39 EST A New Road - Day 14, 15, 16, and 17 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6034181 I've done bad the last few days. I haven't posted to let you all know how things were going. So here's a quick recap. <BR> <BR> Day 14 - Sat <BR> Rest day. Didn't really track, but did good for the most part. <BR> <BR> Day 15 - Sun <BR> Worked, but did do my toning video. Didn't do so well on food wise, but did my best. I didn't do any cardio today because I had to rearrange my room to fit my new space heater in my room. <BR> <BR> Day 16 - Mon <BR> Walked for 30 mins ( didn't track). ... Wed, 18 Nov 2015 10:58:23 EST A New Road - Day 13 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6031791 I walked for an hour. I did fine with everything eating wise. I did come under for carbs. I finally came under for sodium this week. I got all of my water in. <BR> <BR> I'm still at 120 lbs. Sat, 14 Nov 2015 00:00:14 EST A New Road - Day 11 & 12 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6031252 I forgot to write a post for yesterday. I did fine mostly yesterday. I did go over in sodium. I did get some walking in. <BR> <BR> Today, I did my toning video. I also walked for a bit. I only went over in sodium. I did come under in carbs, but I'm not that worried. Thu, 12 Nov 2015 23:15:02 EST A New Road - Day 10 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6030148 Well, I did some toning today. I did a video. I also walked for maybe 90 mins. <BR> <BR> I came within limits on everything, but was a little low on calories (I didn't want to force it), and went over in sodium. <BR> <BR> I did get 11 cups of water in. The tap water is not helping. Tue, 10 Nov 2015 23:40:00 EST A New Road - Day 9 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6029588 i went over in fiber and sodium. I came under in calories, I came in at around 1600. <BR> <BR> I walked for an hour. It's hard to break a sweat when your room is in the 50s or lower in the morning. Mostly it's me warming me up. Tue, 10 Nov 2015 00:49:18 EST A New Road - Day 8 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6028956 I mentioned yesterday that I was going to clean today. Well, some of that was getting all of the pants and shorts that are too big out of the way. Shirts aren't that much of a problems. Hello, house shirts and sleep shirts. Anyway, I've bagged them up. I haven't decided what to do with them. I have no plans to ever go back to size 14 much less size 18. Don't worry. I'll donate them at some point. <BR> <BR> I went over in sodium. I hate it that tap water has sodium in it. I haven't ... Sun, 8 Nov 2015 21:50:06 EST A New Road - Day 7 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6028442 Well, today didn't go too well. I went over in calories and few other things. I came under in fiber. I'm not beating myself too much. Today was cheat day after all. <BR> <BR> It was also one of my rest days. More than likely tomorrow will be one, too. I have to do some cleaning. So I need the day to do it. Sat, 7 Nov 2015 22:32:41 EST A New Road - Day 6 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6028008 Today I walked for 45 mins. <BR> <BR> I came under the recommended amount of calories. I was around 1500 instead of 1700. I came under in carbs and fiber. I did get all of my water in. I went over in sodium, again. <BR> <BR> I weight in today at 120 lbs. So I gained a pound. I'm not going to go crazy or anything,but I'm going to do my best next week to keep the sodium in check and more than likely do more than 30 mins a day. Fri, 6 Nov 2015 23:36:56 EST A New Road - Day 5 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6027470 I walked for 30 mins. Later at work I did something i don't nomrally do so I added it, but less than what I actually did. For about 30-45 mins, I had to run up and down stairs to put things up. <BR> <BR> I did well on everything except sodium. I'm working on that. I had some extras, but mostly was a normal day. I took a chicken wrap to work instead of a shake. <BR> <BR> About the shakes, the Slim Fast shakes I was drinking actually have 5g of fiber, while the Breakfast Essentials onl... Thu, 5 Nov 2015 23:09:37 EST A New Road - Day 3 & 4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6026914 Yesterday, I did fine for the most part. I came under in fiber. I did go over in sodium. I walked for 30 mins. <BR> <BR> Today, I went over in sodium again. I came under in fiber. I didn't workout today. <BR> <BR> The reason is that yesterday Subway had this deal of a free sub with the purchase of a sub and drink. So yeah. I ate a footlong a day. I know I said that I rarely eat fast food, and it's true. It's just sometimes I have it a few times close together than will go awhile wi... Wed, 4 Nov 2015 23:03:03 EST A New Road - Day 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6025676 Today wasn't so good. I did get enough calories in, but I went over in a few things and under in some. We ended up having KFC for dinner. I know it wasn't cheat day, but as you guys have no doubt realized I don't eat fried food really. I cook almost everything I eat myself. <BR> <BR> I walked for 30 mins today. Tomorrow I might get the Gazelle unfolded and do it. Mon, 2 Nov 2015 22:09:51 EST A New Road - Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6025017 Today is officially the start of well, forever. Today I start on maintaining my weight. Yes, I'm still putting everything into the tracker like before, but now it's to be sure I eat enough. I mean eat enough calories as to not loose weight. The bad thing is my body is used to the 1200-1550 range it has had over the last few months. So I have to allow it to get used to the increased amount. The site has given me the base goal of 1780-2130 calories a day. For now, I'm aiming around 1800... Sun, 1 Nov 2015 22:48:37 EST Day 171 Final Day? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6023940 If you've seen my tracker than you know. I have reached my goal, well I went over by a pound. I'm now 119 lbs. <BR> <BR> I'll start on maintaining my weight really on Sunday, but it may be officially Monday. I have to change what type of account I have here on sparkpeople. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow will be cheat day like always. <BR> <BR> Today, I had around 1800 calories. That's more than I have been and I won't lie a good bit was empty. I added coffee creamer to my hot tea. I did come w...

I walked for two hours. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow's weigh in day. <BR> <BR> Thu, 29 Oct 2015 23:04:29 EST Day 169 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6022874 I came within limits on everything, but fat (I went over by one). I got all of my water in. <BR> <BR> Walked for 75 mins. Wed, 28 Oct 2015 22:40:09 EST Day 168 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6022310 I went over in calories, but came within limits on everything else. I had to get more in me to get enough fiber. I was still under 1600 calories. <BR> <BR> I walked for 90 mins. <BR> <BR> Tue, 27 Oct 2015 22:58:20 EST Day 167 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6021716 Well, I walked for two hours. <BR> <BR> I went over in a few things.

I worked a long shift (longer than my normal one) and moved around a lot. I walked a total of an hour for my workout. <BR> <BR> I did go over in calories (under 1600) and fat (not too bad). I came within limits on everything else. <BR> <BR> Also I've started taking Skin, Hair, and Nails vitamins. Hopefully it'll help with my hair. I've been having a lot of fall out or something. <BR> <BR> I got all of m... Sun, 25 Oct 2015 20:37:02 EST Day 165 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6020520 I took a nap. Maybe about an hour. No telling how extactly it'll affect me when I try to go to bed tonight. I have to go to bed early tonight cause well, you know. If you don't, I'll explain tomorrow. <BR> <BR> I came within limits on everything, but fiber. I didn't get enough in. I did try. I did have some candy. I did get all 10 cups of water in. <BR> <BR> Today was rest day. Sat, 24 Oct 2015 19:19:17 EST Day 164 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6020145 Today was weigh in day. I came in at 121lbs. So only one pound left till my goal. So my goal is to reach it by weigh in next week. <BR> <BR> Once I reach my goal and change from loosing to maintaining, I'll start a new blog title series. <BR> <BR> Now for today. I got all of my water in. I came within limits on everything, but fat. I did have a bag of M&M Peanuts. I know, but I needed some extra energy. I had also about half of a can of Diet Dew ( I hate Diet Dew}. I know but it ...

I did do one bad thing. I had a Diet Mountain Dew. I haven't had any soft drinks in a while so not too bad.

Mon, 19 Oct 2015 22:54:41 EST Day 158 & 159 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6017194 Saturday - Cheat day of course. Because it was so cold, no head remember, I had more coffee and hot tea than I would normally. I did have a semi light lunch and shrimp scampi for dinner with slightly different ingredients than the one I made during the week. Today was also rest day. <BR> <BR> Sunday - I did fairly well, well maybe. I had a third of one of the big sandwiches from Walmart. I had it with a bowl of soup, but I didn't really eat the soup. I used the broth to dip my sandwich... Sun, 18 Oct 2015 21:11:45 EST Day 157 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6016281 I walked for 40 mins. I went over in calories and carbs, but was fine in everything else. I'm not beating myself up. I worked a rather long day and needed some extra energy. It happens. <BR> <BR> Also, I'm now at 123 lbs only two pounds to go. Fri, 16 Oct 2015 22:46:07 EST Day 156 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6015750 I walked for 45 mins. The Challenge is in it's last week. Now it's 35 mins a day. I got all of my water in and came within limits on everything again. Thu, 15 Oct 2015 23:15:20 EST Day 155 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6015185 Walked in Walmart and Aldi while shopping, but only counted it as 20 mins. Came within limits on everything. I didn't go over at all today. I got all of my water in. <BR> <BR> Wed, 14 Oct 2015 22:43:51 EST Day 154 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6014619 Walked for 75 mins.

Came within limits on everything. I got all of my water in, too. <BR> <BR> I may have gained back two pounds, but it could also be that my scale was wrong last week. It gives me different weights depending on where I have it. I don't plan to move it, but it might happen while cleaning. Sat, 10 Oct 2015 00:14:12 EST Day 149 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6011893 Walked for 90 minutes. The challenge is now up to 30, but I of course went over.

So only two more pounds to go. I walked for 90 mins. <BR> <BR> Saturday, was cheat day. I didn't do so well with water. I drank mostly tea. Not good I know. I didn't work out at all on Saturday. I spent the day cleaning. So that counts. I didn't do the challenge at all today. Sat, 3 Oct 2015 22:10:18 EST Day 142 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6007723 Did good today. I walked for 90 mins. I came within limits for everything.

I now walk at least 20 minutes a day. Thu, 1 Oct 2015 23:40:09 EST Day 141 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6007086 Did good today came within limits on everything. I walked for 30 mins. I had to work a longer than normal shift. So it kind of made up for it a bit. Wed, 30 Sep 2015 23:18:28 EST Day 140 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6006435 Did good on almost everything, but I did come two grams under for protein. I got my water in and came within limits on everything else. I walked for an hour. Tue, 29 Sep 2015 22:00:20 EST Day 139 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6005861 I did fine on everything, but sodium. I got all of my water in. I walked for an hour cause my friend is here for his visit. Other wise I did fine on everything. Mon, 28 Sep 2015 22:58:09 EST Day 138 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6005205 I went over, but today was cheat day. We had KFC for dinner. I walked for 30 mins before work and did an hour on the Gazelle after work. I did get my water though. Sun, 27 Sep 2015 23:02:44 EST Day 137 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6004608 I came within limits on everything but fat, over by a tiny amount, and sodium. I went really over on that. I got all 10 cups of water in. I walked/did the moves of Walk Away The Pounds for 10 minutes. Sat, 26 Sep 2015 20:11:30 EST Day 136 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6004145 No change. I'm still at 130 lbs. I came within limits on everything and got my water in. I walked for an hour and did my Gazelle for 20 mins. <BR> <BR> I know I need to increase my working out and I need to get more water in. Mostly this week, I've only gotten the 10 cups in and not more. I'm only allowing myself to have 4 cups of tea a day at most. Coffee is worst and that is at most 2 cups a day, If I have it at all. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow's rest day, but I'll walk for 10 mins. <BR>... Fri, 25 Sep 2015 23:01:33 EST Day 135 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6003582 I've finished the Challenge. I've now started a new one. I've joined the Walk This Way Challenge. It's another 30 days challenge. For the first week, you have to walk for 10 minutes everyday. I already do that, even if it isn't outside. I'm going to walk and do my Gazelle every day. <BR> <BR> I walked for an hour. I was going to do my Gazelle, but stuff happened and I wasn't able to. I did over a bit in fat, but not that upset. Everything else I did fine. Thu, 24 Sep 2015 23:11:01 EST Day 134 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6002996 I did good mostly. I did have one can of Mountain Dew. I know it wasn't the best thing. I went over by 3 calories. I did my Gazelle for 40 mins. I'm slowly increasing it. Mostly I'm doing it while watching videos or TV. Of course, I don't do it at. <BR> <BR> Weigh in day is still Friday. Hopefully I see something this week. Wed, 23 Sep 2015 22:41:47 EST Day 133 & Change of Plans http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6002377 I went over in calories and sodium, and maybe one other thing. I walked for 2 hrs and I did do my Gazelle for 30 mins while watching a video on youtube. <BR> <BR> I've pushed back my goal date. There's no way I'm going to loose the last 10 pounds by the beginning of next month. So instead I pushed it back to the end of the year. <BR> <BR> If I go over my goal, I'll be fine with that. My goal is still to reach 120 lbs. Tue, 22 Sep 2015 22:46:37 EST Day 132 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6001742 More than likely I went over in calories. I had two bowls of chili for dinner. I also had one mini cupcake. I know I went over in sodium. Today was my Dad's birthday, hence the cupcakes. I'll have one a day for the next three days. <BR> <BR> Otherwise all went well. I did my Gazelle for 30 minutes. Mon, 21 Sep 2015 22:30:01 EST Day 131 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6001117 Well, I wasn't planning on today being my bad day, but it turned out like that. I went over in calories and sodium. <BR> <BR> I walked for 30 mins and did Gazelle for 10 mins. <BR> <BR> Tomorrow may be a rest day. I'm not sure yet. Sun, 20 Sep 2015 23:39:29 EST
