I make goals and only stick with them for a day or two and then I binge on junk! Thu, 11 Oct 2012 00:59:47 EST Sore http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5089402 Today was a blast! I spent several hours caring for homeless kitties. It raises my spirits immensely and I also burned a lot of calories in the process! I didn't even think of it as "working out." Sat, 6 Oct 2012 21:36:28 EST Starting over http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5088432 I have started a new job this past month and am loving it! I am working in a veterinary clinic which has always been my dream. I'm starting over on my fitness goals and starting so small that there is no way I can fail. I will add new goals every couple of weeks but still make them small adjustments. Fri, 5 Oct 2012 22:34:59 EST Depression http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5057862 I have struggled with depression for the last several years and thought that I had finally won the battle. I found a medication that didn't make me feel "out of body" and like a robot and felt like living life again. The last couple of months though have been really tough and I don't know why. I don't like upping medication, but I may have to.... I've been crying every day for two weeks now and just generally feeling awful. Even taking my dogs for a walk doesn't seem to lift my mood. I wish (... Thu, 13 Sep 2012 15:42:28 EST Sick, sick, sick http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4939350 Wednesday was my anniversary (the big 3 year) and it was wonderful! My husband is one of those rare guys that actually remembers (although I do have it written on the calendar, LOL) and he took me to dinner and a movie and surprised me with a new Kindle Fire!!! My birthday is the next day, so it was a nice relaxing, low key day. I was also stuck in bed with bronchitis. I haven't been this sick in years, but it's managed to put me in bed for well over a week. Today is the first day that I have... Sat, 23 Jun 2012 19:38:28 EST Rock On!! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4920974 So I've been really discouraged lately about the numbers on the scale. I've gained two pounds even though I am working out and eating pretty well. I work out with my trainer twice a week so I'm getting a heavy workout then and I also go to the gym at least two to three other days as well. I'm training for a 10k in September and so far I'm loving running again. Before I met my husband I used to run 8 miles per day! I'm back up to 1.5 per day so that makes me happy. Yesterday I tried on a shirt... Mon, 11 Jun 2012 01:30:20 EST Personal Trainer- Part 2 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4896495 Met with the trainer and this is going to rock! She says it should be fairly easy (not painless) to lose the weight and tone up! I was correct in my earlier statement that having a trainer would brighten my attitude. I'm feeling great right now and all this was was an orientation. Can't wait to get in there and burn through the gym like I own the place! LOL My goals are finally seeming like they can be a reality now instead of just a dream or something to say when someone asks. Thu, 24 May 2012 17:16:47 EST Personal Trainer http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4896353 Today I'm meeting with my new personal trainer. I took the Spark Quiz and it says I don't need to waste the money, but this is something that I want to do for me. I can't seem to get motivated lately and the scales are not tipping in my favor. So, here I go to get my butt kicked in shape and hopefully a new attitude of excitement toward the gym. I figure since I am shelling out so much money, I won't cancel on her or make excuses about going tomorrow. Sometimes spending money is the way to mo... Thu, 24 May 2012 15:26:39 EST First day of the rest of the days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4891011 Today is Monday and I'm starting another week off on the right foot. I've resolved to take things one day at a time and every week starts another opportunity to shed 2 or 3 lbs. Can't wait to get started! Slept really well last night (well, I sleep during the day) and the kids didn't wake me up too much. Now I'm home from work and ready to go to bed and sleep another 7 hours. I've found that if I sleep less than that I'm a zombie, but I just don't need 8 hours of sleep a night. I feel tired i... Mon, 21 May 2012 10:24:11 EST Feeling Great! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4886153 Today has not started like I had planned (but when does it ever). I haven't accomplished anything on my to do list, but I'm still having a fabulous day. It must be a good mirror day because when I was getting ready this morning I looked particularly thin and my husband made a comment that I looked terrific in my jeans today! Little compliments like that make my whole day go well even if it's not what I had planned. Tonight is Zumba so I'm excited to get to the gym; haven't been there in a whi... Thu, 17 May 2012 17:59:19 EST Today is Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4884241 When I woke up this morning I felt like it would be a good day. I woke up before the alarm clock went off and cuddled up to my husband. He was not in such a good mood and so I got up and went into the living room to do yoga and meditate a little before the rest of the family got up. My meditation focus today was on making good choices and not stressing myself out. I have a bad habit of not taking things one step at a time and trying to solve every problem I've ever had or will have in one day... Wed, 16 May 2012 13:36:33 EST
