For the longest time I was doing so well; I was drinking only water and tea, I wasn't eating all of the junk food I normally put into my body and I had started to work out at a gym and things seemed to go so well until some things happened and I fell off the wagon. The two friends who were supposed to be good friends of mine and my gym buddies, turned on me and I haven't spoke... Sun, 29 Jul 2012 01:56:54 EST Falling off the wagon. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4886577 I know thats its been awhile since I posted a blog, but I've just been dealing with alot in my life that has lead to me again falling off the wagon so to speak. I was doing okay for awhile; I was staying away from sugar-filled colas, I was more active and drinking alot more water than I ever had before plus I was truly watching what I was eating. Well over the last 2-3 weeks atleast I've gone back to my old ways ~ back to eating wayyyyy too much, back to drinking those sugar-filled colas and ... Fri, 18 May 2012 00:06:39 EST Starting Week 2. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4838620 I haven't blogged for a couple of days, not that I haven't wanted to but because I have actually been busy (something other than sitting in the house all the time). I've been out and about most of the past week; made a few shopping trips (mostly for my cousins's baby shower), did one grocery shopping trip, went to my cousins's baby shower on Sunday and saw family that I haven't seen in 6-7 years, and I've begun to do some work with my parents at their floral shop. I spent five hours there, mu... Tue, 17 Apr 2012 00:33:46 EST Day 5. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4834268 Well its just two days shy of a week, and so far I think I've done okay but I'm still falling a little bit behind when it comes to certain things. I'm doing okay in some respects, maintaining drinking water more than anything else and picking snacks that are better for me but in other ways I'm still splurging abit on things I shouldn't be. Considering that I've had years of bad habits, I think I'm doing really well, the only problem is that I still fall off ~ like tonight, I did well for a we... Sat, 14 Apr 2012 01:48:29 EST Day 4. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4832773 Well today was an okay day. I woke up just after 8am which is unusual for me, was out the door at 10am to Wal-Mart to shop for my cousin's baby shower this weekend and didn't get home until 1pm! I did quite abit of walking, not only around the store itself but since the bus wasn't coming I walked from Wal-Mart when I was done to the nearest mall which was like 15 mins away. I did more walking today than I have done in a long time and holy smokes is my back ever sore, however knowing that I ha... Fri, 13 Apr 2012 00:13:31 EST Day 3 Summary. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4831236 Well all in all today was a pretty good day for me. I got my GST (for those of you in Canada, you'll know what I'm talking about) so I went out to get that cashed and ended up spending a total of close to 2 hours walking so I actually felt good about putting in that time plus I did abit of shopping so that helps lol. I bought myself a pretty new purple tank top with ruffles by the neckline and it fits perfectly, it was only $9 at wal-mart so when I get more money I will buy more of them (they... Thu, 12 Apr 2012 00:27:50 EST End of Day 2. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4829654 Well today was I think abit harder than usual, its day 2 and I admit I fell off the wagon just a little bit. Normally I'd be beating myself up and would just say forget it I screwed up and that's it, BUT today I realized that just because one day you fall off the wagon, doesn't mean that the next day isn't a new day because it is ~ we all make mistakes, but that does not mean its the end of the world. I finished off the little bit of my leftover easter chocolate, partly to get it out of the w... Wed, 11 Apr 2012 00:52:27 EST Day 2 and the gym. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4828896 Well today is day 2 and so far so good. I've tracked my food on the nutritional tracker and I've been drinking nothing but water so far today so I think that I am doing well. Today I was talking to my mom about working out at the gym, and because I live at home and take care of my autistic sister I have alot of responsibilities at home so I have to schedule my workouts around things I do here. My parents own a floral shop and I will also be working part time with them so I'll be busy in the c... Tue, 10 Apr 2012 14:36:12 EST Update on Day 1 of blogging and more! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4828047 Well its the end of day 1 when it comes to utilizing Spark People and I have to say that it has been very successful. I used the nutritional tracker for the first time today and at first I thought it would be scary and hard to use but I got the hang of it pretty fast and its so easy now I know I will be utilizing it on a daily basis. The other thing that I love about it is that even for only this first day, I'm keeping an eye on what I put into my mouth and its making me that much more accoun... Tue, 10 Apr 2012 00:58:37 EST My first blog! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4827482 Well here I am for the very first time, starting on a weight loss journey that I began back in January. I joined a gym and got 2 solid weeks out of it before I came down with bronchitis, three weeks later I feel I'm well again and get two more workouts in and then poof I get a viral infection. This week I will be going to workout for the first time in like almost a month and I admit that I am feeling the effects. I have been feeling very tired and sluggish lately, nothing like how I felt thos... Mon, 9 Apr 2012 17:50:45 EST
