I is a very hard step by step process. I have been at it about two weeks now. <BR> I found a cool new place today that you can get healthy drinks and their is a healthy activity everyday. They saw my husband's bike and told him a group bikes every morning. Pretty cool. <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/3/l1374906787.jpg"> <BR> <BR> I have lost 9lbs so far. I feel good about that but, I have to get my numbers and he... Wed, 29 May 2013 16:33:15 EST Disappointed with myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5012347 I am so disappointed with myself right now. I takes soo sooo very much to lose any weight on me at all. I am stressed and busy right now and have had a hard time keeping up losing weight. I have not had money to get any healthy foods right now and i am trying to do well in eating anyway but very hard. I also have been swimming but, it is not burning very many calories or doing anything that I can see. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/8/l182690524.jpg"> <BR> <BR> I am ho... Sun, 12 Aug 2012 17:06:56 EST Jam packed day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4993598 I worked my behind off yesterday to burn off some calories. I did my 5K virtual walk on a trail close to my house but, I was not wise to listen to advise and went on the hottest part of the day. It was soooooooo burning hot even with some shade. It slowed me way way down. I was proud that I finished it though even if it did take me an hour. <BR> I then was so burning hot that I went to the pool and WOW it felt so wonderful!!! My family and I spent like two or three hours there enjoying the co... Mon, 30 Jul 2012 18:39:28 EST Blast but back on track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4989576 This is the last meal I made before going to celebrate my birthday. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/6/l262668266.jpg"> <BR> you can watch how it is made at www.Sololine.blogspot.com <BR> <BR> I am sad that I was not strong enough and fell into the temptation of bad foods and drink the three days I was celebrating my birthday. I wanted to fight it but, old habits and some slight pressure from family made me want to eat wrong. I am sad because it made me gain 3 pounds b... Fri, 27 Jul 2012 16:30:24 EST A Lap in time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4983337 I had a pretty good day yesterday. My hubby was super attentive to me and gave me a long massage on my sore muscles. I went to the pool and did some laps for exercise and my shoulder is paying for it today but, it was good. I watched my shows The Glass House feed, and bachlorette, and Dollhouse. My hubby made us dinner. An African dish called Ugali and beef stew. I had a little portion since it is white cornmeal. Here are some pictures. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/8/6/... Mon, 23 Jul 2012 13:53:45 EST upbeat energy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4980001 Today was a good day. I woke up having more energy today. My stomach was hurting at first but, I figured it was the metamucil I took yesterday going to work on me. I did a lot of running around and a little cleaning. The Pool "finally" opened today and I loved it. It was so refreshing and nice and cool. I got some fun exercise. <BR> I came home and showered and went straight to work on dinner choosing to make the chicken tenders I had defrosted. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.... Sat, 21 Jul 2012 01:26:26 EST Fatigue is making me lazy http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4973010 I have been so tired lately. My doctor said I am anemic but I think I have been that way for a long while so I don't think that is effecting me. Anyway, feeling tired makes me want sugar and caffine but, I am avoiding the soda and doing ok on the sugar. I still feel that I am trying and doing ok. I am not walking as much now that I have a used van that I can drive places so I have to make sure I think of ways to get exercise or go on walks. <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw... Mon, 16 Jul 2012 15:09:16 EST Trying to stay on the bike http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4969112 It is sooo hard. I am still struggling to eat right and stay motivated to keep moving with my health issues and stressful situations but, when I mess up I go on and jump back in there. I am not trying to diet but, to change my lifestyle and I know that it takes time to do that. <BR> <BR> <BR> (not letting me post a pic. will have to add later.) <BR> <BR> <BR> steps yesterday: 6,201 <BR> <BR> still working on today's. I need to work on my house today. You can hangout with me while I clean... Fri, 13 Jul 2012 18:29:15 EST slow day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4964818 Today was a hard slow day for my healthy living. I have had that wonderful time for women and been drained of energy. I have not ate real well this week either so I doubt I will have good results with health or weigh in this week. However I am not giving up at all. I also got bad news on my blood test but, it is kind of challenging me to do better plus my cousin got lap band surgery today and I don't want her to be the only one losing weight even though she will lose faster than I will. <BR>... Wed, 11 Jul 2012 00:28:50 EST Missing in action http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4944872 I have not posted the last few days because I was having a lot of extreme bowel pain. I am not sure what the problem is but have a lot of theories. Anyway, I had to take care of myself and am back on and doing what I can. I am glad there is a free site like this to share and keep up getting inspired. thanks. <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/9/l39080597.jpg"> Wed, 27 Jun 2012 14:47:14 EST The food part is soooo very hard. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4938332 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/3/4/l349628097.jpg"> <BR> <BR> I did bad on the food part again today. I had panda express. grrr.... I did have unsweetened decaf tea so at least that was good. <BR> I walked some while doing errands and price comparisons at the store. <BR> I was so so so very tired today so that did not help me but I was so so EXCITED that my husband did the dishes while I was gone---that is a big deal to me. <BR> I am suppose to work at the thrift store tom... Fri, 22 Jun 2012 23:26:33 EST Struggling but putting in effort! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4937030 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/2/8/l287300599.jpg"> <BR> <BR> So hard to switch to healthy food. I did okay today but, not to great on food. Had sliders and cottage cheese with pinapple and Tea. NO I DID NOT EAT THE FRIES. lol. I had two hot dogs with mustard for dinner with Tea. A couple of mini chocolate chip muffins (mix). <BR> I did better with the exercise though. I walked a gorgeous trail. <BR> Video view of my walk and effects at www.Sololine.blogspot.com Fri, 22 Jun 2012 00:10:26 EST Fresh start --ready to connect with others. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4935533 I have to apologize to all that were supporting me on this site but, also for myself for not sticking with getting healthier. I am back at it now both on here, on my regular blog, and in my life. It is not easy --at all but, I am going to work at it. I could not do much today because of the strong heat and only three hours of sleep but, I managed to do some work on my van, and run some errands. <BR> <BR> steps today : 1511 Follow my journey and connect more with me at: www.Sololine.blogspo... Wed, 20 Jun 2012 23:32:30 EST too frustrating http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4175938 Negative I know but I just can't get the hang of it. Food is expensive and hard to make meals for me "and" my family. I am going through alot emotionally and have yet to find a way to deal with it that does not leave my blood pressure up and feeling sick. I am not doing well and feeling so discouraged. I don't have money to do a program in person anywhere but doing this online does not seem to be helping me. grrr. anyway --I have to vent somewhere cause nobody wants to hear complaining and ba... Tue, 19 Apr 2011 03:35:16 EST harder http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4173159 I have not been doing well lately--I think it is due to emotional overload. I am going to stay at it when I feel I can. It is so much harder than I even thought it was going to be. I was very disappointed that last weigh in I had not lost anything cause I worked my butt off to do well that week. Mon, 18 Apr 2011 00:30:18 EST worn out! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4162071 I did ok today but I feel worn out from Girlie time and soooo sore from all the walking yesterday. I had hormonal moment earlier but am feeling better now--did not stress eat. I messed up and had a bad lunch with soda today --forgot and then had already ordered in restraunt but it was a learning lesson and not to bad. it was light. I refused bad food while visinting my mom --yay. Tue, 12 Apr 2011 23:48:55 EST felt good today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4154892 ok so I did not stay away from fast food today but I did make as bad choices in the day. It was wonderful weather today and I enjoyed it so much. I relaxed alot and shopped antique and thrift store watched animals having fun. I loved the chicken and fruit salad I had and did not notice I had not eaten again until nine at night. wow. I even refused a dessert. yay. me. I hope I can keep it up and move towards better habits. Sun, 10 Apr 2011 01:44:38 EST so hard starting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4153914 I am finding it hard to log my foods and exercise in--it takes some time on here to do that. I am also finding it hard to eat well especially at night when my craving really kick in and especially since I am so low on money last night. I am taking small steps and just trying to make a better choice instead of not having it but I will have to do away with it later I know to make a difference. I did lose 10 pounds but I am wondering if my scale at home is correct. Sat, 9 Apr 2011 15:06:48 EST
