See if I make it through day 2. Funny thing is, having no working scale is weirdly motivating. 1, I can't be on it every five seconds and 2, I have to do better, longer, to see any results. If I have to base it on how my clothes fit and not on a number, there's further to go for reward. So I better get this right several times over or...buy a scale. <BR> <BR> ;P <BR> <BR> Tonight is work and joy of joys...my housemate's family is coming over. Which means no sle... Sun, 14 Feb 2016 13:39:11 EST Tracking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6095069 Okay so I am back to tracking. It kind of surprised me where my head was last time I updated this. I can't say I am over a lot of it for good, but I am definitely over a lot of it for now. <BR> <BR> We'll see what I think of that tomorrow. <BR> <BR> In other news, my scale is broken. (of it's own will, it seems, and not because of abuse from me. ;P) After several battery swaps, I think it may have bit the big one. Dang it. I liked that scale! <BR> <BR> So until I get another one, I am on... Sat, 13 Feb 2016 14:22:35 EST Personally motivated? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6030539 Having trouble finding and keeping healthy motivation. Being "sexy" is too freaking simple and I really could care less. Being healthy - that's of value - but I still feel like ... I feel like this is on my list of To Do's but not really like...getting up there. Or, staying up there. <BR> <BR> My theory is that it's harder to do in a stressful enviro and a stressful job. Enter both - and I think I trade in the discomfort of adjusting eating/exercise habits for SOME kind of something that fe... Wed, 11 Nov 2015 16:46:28 EST Personal Revie of the Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5856583 I had a personal revie. Something I needed, and something I don't plan on going back on. <BR> <BR> I will NOT be a slave to make-up, hair care, or any other "thing" that is the "thing" of the day. <BR> <BR> I dress, or not dress, for me. Oprah, Wendy, and whoever the *bleep* else can kiss it. Sat, 17 Jan 2015 17:23:45 EST Go you. Go me. Go We. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5856015 So I'm kinda bummed that I didn't get into my calorie range today, but not so bummed because I still have the desire to keep going. In all this time I really haven't had that, and I hope it sticks around. <BR> <BR> However, since I was here a while back I have achieved one of my goals consistently, and that is I rarely get fast food anymore. I eat out at times, but Wendy's McD's, BK, all that - almost never. And that's a good thing, cause it used to be a good chunk of my diet. <BR> <BR>... Fri, 16 Jan 2015 20:05:59 EST Woooow... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5851722 ...I actually fell within my program calorie range for a day. <BR> <BR> WOAAAH. <BR> <BR> Watch your heads. I think the sky is falling. Sun, 11 Jan 2015 11:16:03 EST Gifts for EVERY Mom? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5681480 Today Amazon made me laugh. Well, I made me laugh, but it started with Amazon's advertising which reads: <BR> <BR> Gifts for Every Mom! <BR> <BR> -Fun-loving Mom <BR> -On-the-Go Mom <BR> -Crafty Mom <BR> -Home Entertainer Mom <BR> -High-Tech Homemaker <BR> <BR> And I thought, that's not every mom! They forgot the "Angry b*t@$ on wheels" Mom! <BR> <BR> ----------------------------------------<BR>----------------------------------- <BR> <BR> (The cats, however, entertained themselves with ... Sun, 27 Apr 2014 09:51:45 EST Shock and Awe (Lessons from the King) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5677941 Being someone coming from a seriously high calorie diet (mostly fast food and take-out, re- inspired by 1. my unwillingness to spend hours cooking every few hours and 2. being totally sick of sharing a kitchen with five other people) I was amazed to see just how many calories fast food (in this instance, Burger King) brings me over the 1500 Spark recommends daily. Yesterday, one BK meal hijacked my ENTIRE DAY of calories and I thought, "you must be joking!" <BR> <BR> It explained a lot, but... Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:28:25 EST Such a BUM! ( A majorly rambling catch-up) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5676310 Man, what a bum. Looked at my goal and it was from LAST YEAR??? <BR> <BR> So, good morning from the least consistent person on the planet. (Or, at least a very competitive second. ) <BR> <BR> A goal I remembered did bring me back here, even though this has been a very slow getting-with-it morning. Cats are running around and I think, "do we have to keep going with this day?" <BR> <BR> It's not a bad day at all. Grateful, really - but noticing internal weights, (never mind external) that a... Sun, 20 Apr 2014 11:20:34 EST Sidenote: Fireflies http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4928385 While on our treck today I saw those little jars with the "fireflies" that respond to your touch on the jar and flutter around for your entertainment. I don't see much these days that really inspires me (as in, spontaneous wow thoughts) but today this little toy meant something to me. I told my husband I wanted one, because fireflies are light (and comfort) in the night, and they always seem to just float free yet say "I'm here. I'm here". Like...hope, somehow, too. Not exactly profound, but ... Fri, 15 Jun 2012 22:49:41 EST Things to Remember: CDS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4923481 I just remembered something I noticed while working the circus. There were several much older men participating in many of the acts. So...when my brain starts the "you're too old" thing, I need to remember that, because it's not a theory, I witnessed it, for real. <BR> <BR> Good to know. Great to remember. Good inspiration of the day, and better sword against non-reality (i.e. "you can't".) <BR> <BR> So much for retirement. :) Tue, 12 Jun 2012 14:54:22 EST
