I know that I have an addiction to food and its not just gonna go away and I am also on several medications that make me gain weight and make it hard to lose it, and I have other outstanding health problems that make it difficult to exercise, but its starting to really get on my nerves how much my body is working against me. I'm not making excuses by any means, I am by far the laziest person I know and I know thats a HUGE factor in whats holding me down but i just ... Tue, 14 Aug 2012 16:27:52 EST starting up (again) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4891899 Ok well I'm not really starting up again I just had a break....for about 3 weeks. Thank god I only gained back 2lbs. I think that the more I know whats in the bad food I eat the less I want to eat it. I have never been one of those people that was going to stop eating the things I loved just because of the process of the food, I know there is "pink slime" in mcdonalds food but that doesnt stop me from eating there. But lately I have been thinking that I want to try organic food. My neighbor h... Mon, 21 May 2012 19:43:39 EST getting over the flu http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4852602 So I have the flu and all day yesterday I was sick to my stomach and now today my stomach is still a little sore but I now have a sore throat and a bad chest cold. Getting sick is so very inconvenient. I just bought new weights because I was supposed to start my weight training this week and I still want to, but I'm not sure if I should wait until I'm completely better (which could be another week) or start tomorrow and work through it? Maybe as soon as my stomach is better I will start then... Thu, 26 Apr 2012 00:06:32 EST Great start to my day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4844143 So my day is going pretty good so far. Took a long walk this morning (almost 4 mile there and back) then I just made the yummiest smoothie for snack. It's one cup french vanilla frappiccino, half cup nonfat yogurt and two medium bananas blended, only about 160 cals for 8oz. I still feel a little tired today but I'm sure its just because my body isnt used to eating healthy and walking everyday. I did notice though at night that I seem to get a slight stomach ache for no reason but that its gon... Fri, 20 Apr 2012 13:22:44 EST feeling good! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4840689 So after easter I kind of lost track for a few days. I ate more than I should have and I was lazy as hell to be honest. But I've been back on track for a few days now and it feels good. I'm not normally an active person but I started taking up walking, I'm gonna try for two miles every other day. After I get adjusted to walking all the time I hope to start running. I always wanted to me a runner ever since I was a kid but I always had severe asthma and most of my life I thought I couldnt do a... Wed, 18 Apr 2012 09:56:42 EST I made it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4826754 So I made it till easter without any sweets. I thought that I was going to have a really hard time controlling myself with a full easter basket, but surprisingly it wasnt that hard. I probably had more candy then I should have but I didnt eat NEARLY as much candy as I would on a normal day, let alone easter. I did realize something though, the more candy I at the more candy I wanted, so after I finally realized that I just stopped eating it altogether last night. I'm debating whether I want t... Mon, 9 Apr 2012 10:12:13 EST Almost easter! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4823205 So I'm really excited about it being easter in two days because I get to eat sweets again, but at the same time I'm kinda scared of it, what if I relapse? I plan on limiting my sugar intake and not just stuffing my face because its a holiday but sugar is my weakness and I'm not sure I'm gonna be strong enough to stop myself from overeating. I was thinking that maybe I should just not eat any sweets on easter but that was kinda the whole point, if I made it to easter without any candy or sweet... Fri, 6 Apr 2012 11:28:46 EST day three of no sweets http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4822432 So its only been three days and I think I'm going to die. I know its not that long but I'm pretty sure its the longest I have ever gone without my sugar fix. So my goal was to see if I could go five days (till easter) to have any sweets. I can still have carbs but not the obvious sweets like candy and cakes. No dessert for me. Its sort of a personal test to see how dependent I am on my sweet fixes. So far the hardest times for me seem to be in the morning when I would normally have my 'sweet... Thu, 5 Apr 2012 20:57:10 EST
