I failed the first two times and it was my fault. I give up to easily. Like a lot of people I battle depression and anxiety, and I frequently let that get in my way. I use it as a crutch, as an excuse. I'm too depressed to exercise today. I'm just feeling so anxious I don't think I can move. While those things are ... Fri, 22 Aug 2014 09:51:33 EST I could use some encouragement http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5759510 I could use some support other than just my husband.

Thu, 14 Aug 2014 09:52:24 EST always check the label http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5270386 Not a good food day. I bought a salad at walmart, one of those premade packaged things. I didn't look at the label, cuz, you know....salad. I ate it and put it in my tracker...I think it had 20g of fat. After that I kinda gave up for the day. I ate mostly healthy foods, but I knew I was going to go over on my fats.I did not however expect to go over on my calories, but I did. But, tomorrow is a new day, and I will never buy a salad again without checking the label.

Except maybe that I probably shouldn't have eaten any of the girls' cake pops. I have a cake addiction that I thought I could control. I was wrong. Tomorrow snacks are fruit and veggies, no cake for Mommy! Thu, 21 Feb 2013 21:08:43 EST
