Tue, 27 Aug 2013 07:50:16 EST Too much stress and anxiety... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4992665 So last week was bad. Real bad. Too many things happened, one right after the other. I felt like I couldn't even get my feet under me. This week might be a little better, if only because I have "plans" to start taking care of everything that happened LAST week. Here's to praying nothing more happens this week, because I have ENOUGH on my plate right now. <BR> <BR> I didn't do well with my eating, but I didn't really throw in the towel either. I took a lot of walks with the dog - so I was at ... Mon, 30 Jul 2012 07:58:51 EST Too hot and Too Damp http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4983025 Today's exercise options have just been limited. I tried to get through the whole Brazil Butt Lift today and could only do half of the second video, because I could barely breathe and I was pouring, pouring sweat. It's very humid here, on top of the fact that I was in the basement (for privacy) and it's damp down there. Holy smokes! <BR> <BR> I love summer though. I will take this over winter any day. Mon, 23 Jul 2012 10:46:22 EST Penny the Beagle http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4981334 Here she is: <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/4/5/l45275664.jpg"> Sun, 22 Jul 2012 07:08:13 EST New dog update http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4980964 So far, so very, very good. <BR> <BR> Penny (that's the dogs name) is a very laid-back, chilled out older dog. She hasn't barked once, or run around like a lunatic. She rides really great in the car. She sat on or laid on my lap. We even took her to the in-laws, who have two dogs. She didn't even flinch when they were barking at her or lunging at her. She just turned and walked away. When we finally got her home and let her loose in our HUGE backyard, she ran and ran and ran and sniffed and ... Sat, 21 Jul 2012 21:18:45 EST Gettin' a dog... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4980265 Today we get a dog. We are very excited. <BR> <BR> A friend of mine found themselves in the position of needing to find a new home for their 10yo female Beagle. Apparently she has a little bit of arthritis, which isn't agreeing with the couples 3yo toddler. I guess the kid, as kids will do, wants to play with the dog and climb all over her, but the dog can't handle it because she ends up getting hurt. <BR> <BR> Over here in our house, we don't have small children. My husbands twins are almo... Sat, 21 Jul 2012 09:52:46 EST Eating out success http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4977463 Ate out last night in celebration for our friends work with the "48 Hour Film Project." Yesterday was the showing/voting for the videos. It was a pretty neat time. <BR> <BR> I did really good eating out. We ate at Mongolian BBQ. It's easy to just load up on veggies for them to cook. I also ate a big salad. No dessert. <BR> <BR> Then, at the movie theater, no popcorn. <BR> <BR> We got home really late last night so I just went right to bed. <BR> <BR> That means that I made it all day witho... Thu, 19 Jul 2012 09:31:51 EST I had victories (yes, plural) today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4974954 Today I said no to a free bagel. I did this for a few reasons: <BR> <BR> 1. Because it was too early in the day and I'm going to try to avoid "calorically/points front loading" my day. If I am going to splurge or have a binge moment, I want it to be at night when I typically lose control. So I can save some calories/points for the night, I am far less likely to just blow the whole day. <BR> <BR> 2. Because I don't know how to track a kosher bagel. <BR> <BR> I feel that I made a good choice... Tue, 17 Jul 2012 17:50:32 EST Struggling with sugar http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4972367 I am really, really struggling with my sugar intake. I just can't seem to get a handle on it. Apparently, I have replaced sugar for nicotine. <BR> <BR> I HAVE TO STOP EATING SUGAR!!! <BR> <BR> <BR> ...I wish smoking weren't bad for the body. <em>15</em> Mon, 16 Jul 2012 08:02:56 EST Crazy Week and a Job Interview http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4948638 My week at the shelter was crazzzzy! I had to have, "coming to Jesus" talks with my clients because if they don't start just taking care of some business they are going to have to exit the program. <BR> <BR> Had a crazzzzzzy last day of class with one of the worst professors I've ever had. The professor emailed me yesterday to let me know that I received an "A" in the class. I'd be more impressed with myself if I knew she weren't just handing out A's to mitigate the fact that she did NOTHING... Sat, 30 Jun 2012 08:32:51 EST Email tag for a job interview... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4941271 This is so stressing me out. The woman won't just CALL me! <BR> <BR> I don't have an iphone or a smart phone -- I've only got a plain ol' cell phone with calling/texting capabilities. With that being said, when I am away from my computer, I don't have access to my email. So far, I have missed TWO emails from this woman offering me a few hour window to do a phone screening for a position that I applied for. <BR> <BR> I know that this doesn't bode well for me as a potential candidate for the ... Mon, 25 Jun 2012 09:22:56 EST Non-scale related mental change x1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4939919 These past 2 weeks I've been fitting more activity into my days and counting my calories/eating healthier. Normally I would have weighed myself several times by now -- and been disappointed. <BR> <BR> I know how long it takes for that number on the scale to budge. For me at least, it takes FOREVER. I'll lose water, but gain muscle and the scale will be all over the place for it. Depending on which day of my menstrual cycle, that number on the scale can fluctuate a good 5lbs or more -- in a d... Sun, 24 Jun 2012 09:56:42 EST Non-scale related body change x1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4938901 I still have no idea how much I weigh -- so I have no way of knowing whether or not I have actually *lost* any weight. <BR> <BR> However, I was looking in the mirror today and I look "slimmer." By slimmer, I mean that I don't appear to be as bloated as I used to be. I think that means I have lost a lot of the water retention that I was carrying around. <BR> <BR> I also don't feel as much crushing pressure from the "inner tube looking" roll of fat around my middle that shows up when I sit do... Sat, 23 Jun 2012 12:16:26 EST This is my time... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4938715 So I've been reflecting a lot about this new phase of my life that I am currently in. <BR> <BR> To preface, I have a 16 year old son who has "recently" (Dec 2010) gone to live with his dad. <BR> <BR> It's been a difficult adjustment for me -- to be without him. However, up until recently, he and I have still managed to see each other as frequently as possible. <BR> <BR> Well, that's all about to change. Now, the kid has no time for me. He's working on the weekends (as he should be) and han... Sat, 23 Jun 2012 10:04:31 EST Wind in my hair and sunshine on my face... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4937819 A few years ago I moved out of an apartment that was near a really great bike trail. Biking is always something that I have enjoyed. My love of it goes way back into my childhood. Often, my son and I would embark on rides together. When he was little, I'd put him in a bike seat and I would just GO! As he grew older (around the age of 7) he'd be on his bike truckin' right along side of me. He made his first 20mi ride at the age of 8. I was so proud of him. <BR> <BR> I've missed that trail. Bi... Fri, 22 Jun 2012 14:23:59 EST A Challenging Day... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4936767 Well, I got through the day without the mindless snacking that I usually do while working at the shelter. So that's good. <BR> <BR> Had a very challenging day with a client though. This experience has caused me to rethink the path that my own non-profit will take to work with this population. <BR> <BR> Rather than wallowing in the frustrations of the day, I am going to use them as a growing experience. Thu, 21 Jun 2012 20:09:47 EST Can I get a, "Woot! Woot!"? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4935166 The Hubby and I went to the mall today to look at draperies. I so absolutely wanted to justify gorging on hot pretzels. Instead, I stayed strong. I already had my dinner planned/measured and was really looking forward to it. I did NOT want to blow my day for a pretzel (or two). <BR> <BR> I was strong. I made it. <BR> <BR> Got home from the mall, whipped up my yummy dinner, "gorged" on that -- enjoyed every bite -- and can feel AWESOME that I had a moment when I stayed strong and stuck to my... Wed, 20 Jun 2012 18:28:30 EST So easy to eat healthy in the summer... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4934967 I love summer... all of the fresh, delicious, and RIPE fruits and veggies. <BR> <BR> It's so easy to eat healthy in the summer. <BR> <BR> Mmmm.... fresh fruits and veggies... <em>4</em> Wed, 20 Jun 2012 15:33:37 EST Not as bad as I thought... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4927494 Ok, going along with the theme of not knowing how much I weigh, but having to judge my successes based upon how my clothes are fitting and what not: <BR> <BR> I just tried on a pair of shorts that, last summer fit me very well. They used to be very comfortable. I even had enough room to carry my firearm inside the waistband with enough room to spare that they felt, well, comfortable. I loved wearing these shorts. <BR> <BR> Back in January, I tried to put these shorts on and, well... I could... Fri, 15 Jun 2012 09:51:20 EST No scale in the house... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4926884 So I was just thinking: I never moved the scale from the in-laws house into our house. <BR> <BR> I've got to admit that I love the idea that there is no scale here. That means that I can't even be tempted to go see how much I weigh. It means that I really have to judge my successes as they come and by how my clothes are fitting. <BR> <BR> It's a good thing! <BR> <BR> On another note: <BR> <BR> I have a challenging client at the shelter. He likes to push boundaries. Today's Case Management... Thu, 14 Jun 2012 21:03:14 EST Ok, here I go again... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4925543 I've been absent for a while. Been busy going to school and working on our HOUSE! Yayyyyy.... :) <BR> <BR> So excited about being in our own home. It's a fresh beginning for us in so many aspects of our lives. <BR> <BR> I finally feel ready to tackle my sugary snack addiction. I had it under control, but then started living with people who loved sugar snacks. Combine food pushers with my poor self-control and I end up where I am now: overweight and unhealthy. <BR> <BR> BUT as of today I'm ... Wed, 13 Jun 2012 22:42:48 EST Todays (ultimate) victory... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4841577 Today we closed on our house. Yay! Wed, 18 Apr 2012 21:06:22 EST Victory x4 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4839914 I've been slacking on posting my victories. <BR> <BR> Todays victory: <BR> <BR> I actually got into my car and started to drive to Taco Bell. I really wanted a nachos belle grande. Anyway, next to Taco Bell is Market Fresh. So instead of going to Taco Bell for the Nachos Belle Grande, I went into Market Fresh and made myself a salad. And I drank water instead of soda. <BR> <BR> Yeah, that was huge. <BR> <BR> Hope everyone else out there also a victory today! Tue, 17 Apr 2012 20:02:13 EST Today's victories x3: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4835285 Today I got a really great start on a research paper. It's due Monday, which means that I procrastinated too much, but I will get it done. No worries. <BR> <BR> Also, despite my desire to go out to eat for dinner, I just ate a bowl of cereal instead. It was hard to stay strong. <BR> <BR> In addition, since I sat on my rear working on my paper all day, I felt yucky - so my husband and I went for a 3.3 mile walk. The fresh air felt amazing. <BR> <BR> Finally, I saved enough calories and poin... Sat, 14 Apr 2012 21:29:26 EST Today's victories: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4834034 Did both strength training and cardio. Also, stayed on track with my eating. Fri, 13 Apr 2012 21:57:23 EST One victory at a time... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4833042 I had a really crappy day yesterday. When I got home, all I wanted to do was eat away the stress. Rather than doing that though, my husband and I went and walked a 5k. By the time we got done, I was exhausted and went straight-away to get ready for bed. <BR> <BR> Yes, it was a victory. I take 'em where/when I can get 'em. Fri, 13 Apr 2012 08:27:09 EST Lightbulb thought: http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4829138 It's ok to be hungry. Tue, 10 Apr 2012 18:21:20 EST Job Fair... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4803749 Well, I went to my first ever job fair on Friday. Since I am starting my final semester, I qualify to apply for social work positions at agencies. I simply have to provide the employer with an unofficial copy of my transcripts at an interview. Yes, I am being proactive about finding a job. Ideally, I would like to graduate one day and start working the next. I am ready to GO! <BR> <BR> My cousin and I went together. Except she graduates this semester. I am so jealous! <BR> <BR> The job fair... Sun, 25 Mar 2012 10:08:05 EST Favorite Salad Toppers? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4799290 I'm doing the WW PointsPlus program & logging on SP to ensure I'm getting enough (or not too many) calories, which is working really well so far. The trick to making it work is to eats lots and lots of fruits and veggies (since they are zero points). <BR> <BR> I'm enjoying my daily salad, but wandered around the grocery store yesterday, absolutely stumped for other healthy choices to put on top of that bed o' greens. <BR> <BR> Suggestions? Thu, 22 Mar 2012 08:12:01 EST Zombies couldn't catch me... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4798805 Rode my bike for approx. 10 miles today. The first trip was to and from the grocery store to get more fruits and veggies. The second trip was a long, hard ride. I'm a Walked Dead fan - and let me tell you - no zombie could've caught me. I was haulin' butt! Wed, 21 Mar 2012 21:35:09 EST ... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4796276 Went way over on my WWPP points, but only 50cals over my SP limit. I ate two Little Debbie Swiss Cake Rolls that put me over the edge. I still struggle with controlling my impulse to snack in the evening. When I get my day-eating under control, I'll really tackle that. Until then, I'll reign the beast in as much as possible, but I can't stress out if the beast beats me. <BR> <BR> Ugg. <BR> <BR> BUT not too bad for my second day of "Crack Down" so I am not going to beat myself up. <BR> <BR>... Tue, 20 Mar 2012 07:24:40 EST Yesterday... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4794421 Did pretty good with figuring out how to make the WW PointsPlus work for me. The key IS to eat a ton of fruits and veggies. <BR> <BR> I'll admit it - I didn't feel full all day. <BR> <BR> BUT, I know how it goes every time I cut back on my eating. It's more psychological than anything to always feel hungry. It's because I can't stop thinking about food. I know that if I just keep at it, my body and mind will get used to it. <BR> <BR> This is why falling off the wagon sucks so bad: not just... Mon, 19 Mar 2012 07:09:02 EST Crackin' down http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4793179 Hubby showed me a pic of myself last summer. Oh man did I look good. <BR> <BR> Love my pre-quit body. On the outside at least. <BR> <BR> Crap on a cracker, I need to get my butt in gear and lose all of this weight that I put on from quitting smoking. What the hell is my excuse anymore? <BR> <BR> I got a WW PointsPlus calculator. Today I am really going to start trying to stay within my allotted points and getting my exercise in. <BR> <BR> Dude... <BR> <BR> Sun, 18 Mar 2012 10:36:31 EST Little bit o' this, little bit o' that... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4790203 25 days until we close on our house. By the end of April we will no longer be living with the in-laws. Geez, I cannot wait. It is way too hard to live with other people. Someone is going to make a comment to me about our bathroom fan being on and costing money in electricity, while they themselves turn every light on in the house in the middle of the day. Really? You are seriously worried about your electric bill? And you honestly think that the 5 minutes we run our bathroom fan to clear out ... Fri, 16 Mar 2012 08:40:18 EST What's up with Weight Watchers? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4788675 Ok, so I am tracking my food on my SP nutritional tracker and comparing it to Weight Watchers PointsPlus program. What I can eat via SP (counting calories) far exceeds what I can eat through the PointsPlus program. <BR> <BR> According to WW, I only get 26 points per day. Adding everything up according to the PointsPlus system, I ate 47 points. BUT, according to the SP calorie counter, I only went over my nutritional intake by 150 calories. <BR> <BR> I look at what I ate and yeah, there are ... Thu, 15 Mar 2012 09:23:19 EST House.. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4787259 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/5/3/l536955225.jpg"> <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR> The new house. I cannot wait to close and start moving!! YAY! Wed, 14 Mar 2012 12:19:51 EST I'm back... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4787015 I've been away for a while. Life just got way too busy. <BR> <BR> Between house hunting, school, homework, internship, being a mom (and a stepmom), and a wife... I just got way too bogged down to come on here. <BR> <BR> Yes, I let myself go. I think I've gained back the 5lbs I may have lost. <BR> <BR> BUT, I am back on the wagon now. My MIL is doing the Weight Watchers thing. I think I'm going to hop on the PointsPlus bandwagon. Just to see what happens. No harm in trying. <BR> <BR> Also,... Wed, 14 Mar 2012 09:58:42 EST Expectations... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4745345 The seller of the house we put a bid on - turned it down (no surprise). She is still insisting on $25-30k more than current market value. She's insane. Our realtor is going to try to talk her realtor into getting an appraisal on the house so that she can see, with concrete proof, that she should consider our offer as it is in really good faith and at market value. I mean, a buyer can't even get a mortgage on a house at a price that is above it's appraisal and fair market value. The seller is ... Sat, 18 Feb 2012 22:10:30 EST Another house, another offer... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4742973 but I don't plan on getting too excited about it. The house has been on the market for almost an entire year (March 2nd will be one year). This is because the seller hasn't been willing to lower her asking price. The asking price is about $20-30k above current market value. This is not a short sale. The fact that her realtor hasn't been able to talk some sense into her throughout the course of a year is not a good sign. However, since the listing is about to expire and the seller will be free... Fri, 17 Feb 2012 08:22:18 EST Life is a bully... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4739631 Wow is life kicking my butt right now. I am trying my best to stay on track through it all. I don't feel like I am doing too bad, but know that I could be doing better. <BR> <BR> For instance, I haven't been to the gym in two weeks. I feel like a blob. BUT, I really just do NOT have the time. I am doing well with my eating, although I don't have the time to log it all. I'm concentrating on eating the stuff that I know to be healthy, etc. I took my measurements real quick the other day and th... Wed, 15 Feb 2012 07:38:30 EST No house http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4732766 someone out-bid us. <BR> <BR> back to the drawing board. :( <BR> <BR> I'm more disappointed than I thought I would be. Not because I was emotionally attached to that particular house, but because I am very, very tired of looking at houses. I'm tired of going into homes that have been vacant and destroyed. I'm tired of looking at crap, in crap neighborhoods. I don't feel great knowing that investors are out there paying cash for houses we have to get a mortgage (and inspections) for. <BR> <... Fri, 10 Feb 2012 17:40:30 EST 3hrs 30min http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4732530 In 3hrs and 30min all offers on the house are due. Highest and best wins. The last we heard, our offer was still the best and none of the cash offers have even come close. It is anticipated that the seller will make their final decision by Monday. <BR> <BR> We will still probably spend the weekend looking at other houses. We can't waste time sitting around waiting for someone else to decide what they are going to do. We need to work on Plan B, Plan C, etc. <BR> <BR> I have faith that whate... Fri, 10 Feb 2012 14:30:35 EST Still waiting... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4730056 So, apparently the house that we put an offer on has a total of SIX offers. Yup, six. And our offer is the only mortgage offer. The rest are cash. The seller has decided to do Highest & Best due by this Friday (tomorrow). So, I guess we will find out tomorrow whether we can proceed with the FHA inspection. (Which will determine whether we can buy the house). Oy. <BR> <BR> Cash offers = investors. <BR> <BR> Stupid investors. They are buying up all of the properties!!! :( Thu, 9 Feb 2012 06:31:41 EST The Wait... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4726464 Well, as of yesterday the seller of the home we want had a minimum of FOUR offers to consider. At least 2 of which were cash. We were hoping to have heard something last night, but I suppose that if I had FOUR offers on my home I would want to take a moment to consider them all too. Hopefully, our offer stands out from the others in a positive way. Tue, 7 Feb 2012 05:46:44 EST New house... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4724651 Well, this morning we have a meeting with our real estate agent to put an offer on a house. It's not our Dream Home, because we can't afford that. We knew that when we started looking we were going to have to fend off the "Want Demon" so that we could be realistic about what kind of house we can really, truly afford. <BR> <BR> With that being said, our price range is low and very, very competitive. This past week has been insane! The *moment* a decent house hits the market - it will have sev... Mon, 6 Feb 2012 07:55:27 EST Whoa... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4721064 What a week! <BR> <BR> Between internship, class, homework and looking for and at houses... I have had ZERO time to stay on track this week. I don't see it slowing down either. <BR> <BR> Oh Boy. Fri, 3 Feb 2012 21:06:17 EST APPROVED! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4717145 to buy a house! THANK YOU JESUS!! Wed, 1 Feb 2012 19:01:15 EST Sick Day #3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4715789 Yesterday went better than expected. Except that I didn't pack enough food to eat while at internship. (Or, my metabolism has shifted due to my cycle). So by the end of the day - I was STARVING. I caved and went out to eat with the in-laws. I ordered myself a stack of blueberry pancakes and 3 slices of bacon and enjoyed every bite of it. Oh well, such is life. <BR> <BR> By the time we got home from the restaurant, I had just enough energy to finish up a homework assignment due today and fell... Wed, 1 Feb 2012 07:19:08 EST Sick Day #2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4713725 I did good yesterday in regards to eating well (only the food I packed) and getting through all of my classes. I even got some STATS homework done during one of my breaks - which was a highly motivated move on my part. Also, I did still park on the opposite end of campus so that I would have to get my walking in. I went to bed the moment I got home - so sick and so tired. All in all though, I stayed on track and met the goals that I set for myself: just to get through the day. <BR> <BR> Toda... Tue, 31 Jan 2012 07:12:06 EST Sick Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4711882 Today I'm sick. My goal is to go to school, get through it as best I can considering that it's a full 9 hours; stay on track with my food (better pack that lunch bag); and grab ahold of that binge monster that reared his ugly head over the weekend.
