DUH <BR> 2) You don't have healthy snacks and water on you <BR> 3) You haven't made a list of exactly what you need. <BR> <BR> Spent WAY too much money on food, ate crap for lunch, and didn't drink any water for 3 hours. Now I'm home and I have a headache and I'm discouraged because I made bad choices UGH Wed, 16 Feb 2011 08:35:12 EST Running http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3139284 Running is going really great. I use to only like to run inside on the treadmill. The past two weeks we have had exceptional weather and I've been running outside and I have become addicted. I went to the gym to run on Sunday so I could also use the weight machines and I was annoyed the entire time. I don't like running on the machine anymore. I feel like I go too slow, it's boring, and the people around me chatting annoys the heck out of me. The music is horrible and I have to turn my ipod u... Tue, 20 Apr 2010 03:01:58 EST Addicted http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3113011 So at the suggestion of my best friend, I finally broke down and bought myself a nike+ running gadget. And needless to say I'm already addicted. I want to run every morning and find it frustrating that I don't have a sitter to do that. <BR> I'm also learning that it's really not as far as I thought to run to some places. I ran for 30 mins on Sat, and when I mapped where I ran I was pretty shocked! I need to venture out and find new running paths. The bike paths are really great because they ... Tue, 13 Apr 2010 04:29:24 EST Back again http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3090240 Started back this week. Really trying to keep it together. I seem to have a few good weeks, then I loose it for a week, etc. But I know I've made great small healthy changes and it will all add up sooner or later :) Wed, 7 Apr 2010 08:55:27 EST Resisting http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1305406 Today was our really first hot day of summer. I mean it's getting how enough now where I don't want to go outside midday because I sweat too much. But I got out and Noah and I went for a walk. <BR> <BR> All along the city center people everywhere were eating. Eating all kinds of sinful food and it was horrible! I always make sure I eat before I got to town so I am not tempted to give in and eat something not healthy. But it's not easy when people are walking around eating italian ice cream, ... Tue, 1 Jul 2008 11:02:07 EST I'm back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1287371 Well Noah was born on April 21st and everything is finally starting to settle down. I gained about 25 pounds with the pregnancy, and another 8 the last month :) I am still very busy and home alone all day with Noah so to be honest it will be a very slow start back with spark. Doing what I can when I can. Especially since Noah seems to only want to be carried around in a snugli carrier all day long. It makes it hard to exercise and track my food. <BR> <BR> So my goals for each day are drink ... Mon, 23 Jun 2008 07:15:33 EST Maternity Leave http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=757911 Some of you might have notice that I haven't been around or active alot the past few months. That is because I am officially on maternity leave. We are expecting our first baby in April. <BR> So until that time you won't be seeing me around much lately. <BR> Good luck to everyone and I am looking forward to being back next year :) Mon, 24 Sep 2007 07:48:51 EST Juggling http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=668175 I feel like I juggling alot of things and I am about ready to drop one of my balls and watch them all go down. I can't seem to get my daily calicium in because well the milk doesn't like my stomach. So on the days I remember I have been taking calcium pills. <BR> <BR> Headaches are slightly back, depending on how hard I push myself during the day. I started taking a multi vitamin, vitamin e, calcium pills, and folic acid. I swear they are causing problems with the headaches. When I took them... Tue, 24 Jul 2007 07:23:45 EST Excuses...actions sparked! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=436410 For the past three weeks I have had what I have said are bad weeks. I was sick, I had a full week at work, or I just needed a break. But I know these are just excuses and the fact is that I am really slacking in my sparking. I am not going to the gym every week consistently and I have been eating horribly and not really caring. <BR> <BR> I am in some kind of built up anger. It's like I am angry at myself for being on this diet and feeling like I am sacrificing all the good food that I want ... Wed, 21 Feb 2007 12:00:39 EST Birthdays parties Dutch style suck! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=215224 It was a tough weekend for me as usual food wise. When Yuri is home I tend to cook not so good. But I have told him we won't be doing that so often. So after having fries on friday (totally blew my calories) we are pretty good the rest of the weekend, until we went to our brother in laws birthday party. UGH <BR> <BR> As a general rule of thumb Dutch birthday parties are what we American's call "the circle of hell." You basically sit in a circle and vitit and gossip and talk with everyone.......
