I of course know that this means something is up. He tells me that he is taking one of my employees to work on the Battalion Truck. Of course he did this to me over a year ago. Both workers were really good workers. So of course once I get someone in the mailroom that works really well he want's to steal them for the truck. Instead of going out and hiring his own people. I just finally got fully staffed. I had 12 people i... Tue, 5 Nov 2013 15:41:31 EST Back on the Wagon http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5470022 Well it's almost the first of the month. Getting back on track now instead of waiting those few extra days that could cause my lips to eat way more than I should. <BR> <BR> <em>311</em> Going to start walking once a day for thirty minutes. If it's in the gym or outside it's getting DONE! <BR> <BR> <em>370</em> Getting the 5 to 6 small meals in a day instead of the 2 or 3 big ones that I have been doing as of late. <BR> <BR> <em>493</em> Watching my sugar intake and making sure I ... Thu, 29 Aug 2013 15:09:42 EST Maid Service http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5456297 For weeks now I have felt like a maid in my home. I guess it's because we used to share things around the house and now it seems like I'm the only one doing anything. I know that he works 12 hours a day for 4 days. But he also gets 4 days off. Guess what on those 4 days he doesn't help either. I don't know what's going on with him. But I'm about ready to stop being a maid and seeing just how messy the house is going to get. Any takers how long I will last? <BR> <BR> Don't get me wrong he isn... Thu, 15 Aug 2013 15:16:29 EST 2 years tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5400639 Tomorrow will be two years since my mom passed away. I think it hurts just as much as the day it happened. I know I miss and love her just as much. So I guess that's why it hurts just as bad. I feel like I'm all alone in this and I'm just dragging everyone down around me if I talk about it. <BR> <BR> My dad has remarried and I know that he has moved on I just thought he would still be a little sad from time to time. But according to his new wife he was always pinning away for her through the...

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 16:33:50 EST New Season for Sunny Gals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5391830 It's the start of a new season for Sunny Gals and that's a good thing. Last season was not a good one for me. Somewhere about half way through I lost my focus and motivation. But I'm feeling great and motivated once again! It's time to kick myself forward and make the changes in my life that I need. <BR> <BR> Our first week's challenge was to pick a long term goal and mine is going to be the 10k! Now I haven't done a 5k let alone a 10k. So I'm going to work myself up and hopefully by October... Mon, 17 Jun 2013 10:24:36 EST Parents-where they fit in with the weight issue. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5343030 In my favorite group we got onto the subject of an emotional baggage. If our parents play a role in the weight department. Believe me I'm not saying my parents caused me to eat and eat and to gain weight. I know that I have control over what happens to me. Though I realize I do have a control problem. I let people effect my emotional and physical self. One of my ultimate hangups is how people view me. But did they play a role in the emotional part of the weight gain. The answer to that questi...

They are committed and conscientious, especially about safety and consistency. “You’ll see Blues habitually using the same gym equipment all the time,” notes Brue. “They like to monitor their heart rate and keep track of their progress.” They also like to create their own space and are likely to read books or magazines while on a treadmill. <BR> <BR> Motivation: Blues will benef... Sun, 28 Apr 2013 14:23:30 EST STA Challenge Week 6 Food Plan http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5299904 I watched this documentary last night and let's just say it opened my eyes to what I have been doing wrong. First of all the worst thing you can do is go on a "diet". <BR> <BR> I'm going to be doing a "Flexitarian Plan". It's not going all the way vegan or vegetarian but adding more veggies and fruit to your food plan. Adding food and then it over time it replaces the bad food. It's a subtle change not a drastic so it's not denying your body anything. You can still eat meat when you want it... Mon, 25 Mar 2013 19:25:10 EST 118 days left of 4 month challenge http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5290459 Today I still didn't eat so great but I stayed within my calorie range so I'm pretty happy with that. Plus no matter what I eat even if it's a bite I have been marking it down. It's becoming a good habit. Almost a month of doing this!! <BR> <BR> It was a crazy morning for me. My husband usually calls me at 6:30 am to tell me he is off work and coming home. I didn't get that call today. So at 6:45 am I start giving him calls every 10 minutes. I know I sound crazy but it really makes my mind g... Sun, 17 Mar 2013 23:26:16 EST Day One of 119 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5289229 Today I woke up sick....it sucks to be sick and un-motivated. My husband ordered pizza so of course I ate the "bad" pizza. Also didn't get to the gym today. But I did finish my videos for my Sunny Gal team. At least I got some exercise in today. I'm all bloated right now from the pizza and from TOM being right around the corner. In fact any day now. <BR> <BR> I didn't fight with my husband about the pizza. He is already having enough of a rough day. Today was his dad's birthday he would have... Sat, 16 Mar 2013 21:55:50 EST 4 months.....40lbs http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5287812 I have been going in the wrong direction with my weight loss. I have gained back a total of 23lbs of the 90 that I lost. I'm so not going down this road anymore. As of tomorrow I have 4 months until my b-day. Also 4 months since a year ago I was 23lbs lighter. My goal is to get that and some extra off before my next B-day. I had a bet going with Blaize to be at 260 by 7.16.13 but that's probably a very high goal to accomplish. So I'm going to be doing 40lbs lost in 4 months! That will put me ...

Mine is a little high but I still think it's doable. It's a big goal but I have mini goals set up for myself as well!

I'm 32 and I have been married for almost 14 years now. We don't have any kids and at this point we may never. Which is something that I'm coming to terms about. Currently looking into buying our own home which is a very scary and frustrating process. I see why people rent for so long! ;-) When the Seasonal challenge first started I was doing very good... Sun, 17 Feb 2013 11:33:00 EST February Goals http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5237232 Goals for the month: <BR> <BR> 1.) go to the gym 5 days a week <BR> 2.) Log food and fitness on tracker <BR> 3.) Blog as often as I can <BR> 4.) lose 10 lbs this month <BR> <BR> <BR> I actually went to the gym by myself today. YEAH!! It wasn't too weird after all and I stayed in the main part of the gym. I thought I was going to be uncomfortable and go into the womens section. But they don't have all the same equipment so I stayed out in the main. Mon, 4 Feb 2013 13:36:46 EST Off Track http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5214531 Well I got off track a litte bit so I need to focus and stay on track! <BR> <BR> It's hard not to let your life get you sidetracked but no matter how far you get off track it's never to late to jump back in. <BR> <BR> 1.) check in with Sunny Gals everyday <BR> 2.) Do some form of workout everyday <BR> 3.) Blog as often as possible <BR> 4.) don't let life get you to sidetracked <BR> 5.) Jump right back in <BR> 6.) Log food either on here or in journal <BR> 7.)

Afterwards My Dad called me and told me that the girls ( my nieces) didn't really want to be there that weekend. The only reason they came was because I was there. Which he might have been right but I was the one to make plans to get them. Plus I went and picked them up. He hadn't made plans to get them or pick them up. He was expecting their mother to come to him. Which is not going to happen since her and my brother are now divorced. On top of that my brother hasn't... Fri, 18 Jan 2013 00:58:08 EST Stairs 1......Me 0....... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5200646 This morning Brandon comes home from work and realizes that he forgot to turn in a handcuff key. So he had to go back to the unit and drop it off. I told him I would drive since he was sleepy. Due to the rain my stairs were very slippery. So what happens? <BR> <BR> That's right I slip on the second step and land on my butt. I went down on my butt two more stairs before I could right myself. OMG it hurt not just my butt but my back as well. I guess where it jarred me or where I was trying to...

I was supposed to attend a funeral Friday morning but we got into Cove 15 minutes after the funeral started and still had another thirty minute drive to get to the funeral home. So I sent my best friend a text telling her to call me when she got back home. I felt really bad that I wasn't able to get there. But I did get to see her later and she was doing as good as can be expecte... Wed, 9 Jan 2013 13:34:53 EST Day 7 of 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5196204 Well I missed two days of writing a blog. But that's how the cookie crumbles. My weekend was very busy and tense in certain spots. I feel bad I wasn't able to make my goals everyday. On the other hand I know the only thing to do is keep moving forward. <BR> <BR> So here is to keep moving forward with my goals! Have a good night everyone! See you in the morning! Tue, 8 Jan 2013 00:58:44 EST Day Four of 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5189527 Well I'm about to be on my way to Cove for the weekend. I might get to see some snow but more than likley it's just gonna be ice. Joy for getting to drive in that mess but it should be fine. Hopefully all the idot drivers are already at work by the time we start driving into the mess. <BR> <BR> Can't wait to see my family!! It's getting close now and I can't wait to have a fun filled busy weekend with them. <BR> <BR> Fri, 4 Jan 2013 07:37:45 EST Day Three of 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5187626 This job of my husband's is going to make me go gray fast! For those that don't know my hubby is now a prison guard and I have to say it kind of freaks me out. I keep worrying about him I guess that's only natural. He calls me every morning on his way home from work which is nice because if not my brain gets a little carried away. This morning he was thirty minutes late calling me. Which I know is probably just waiting on count to clear or the next shift getting there and taking over his posi... Thu, 3 Jan 2013 07:45:10 EST Day Two of 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5185547 Couldn't sleep well last night and I think that's why I'm up so early this morning. Looks like it's going to be a long day for me.:-( <BR> <BR> I think I'm excited a little bit because I'm going home this weekend to see my dad, my hubbys parents and also my friend Michelle. I have so much crammed into this weekend it's not even funny. Friday morning I'm picking Brandon up from work and we are headed straight out. I have to make it to Lampassas by 11am I have a funeral to attend. My friend Mi...

Tue, 1 Jan 2013 15:34:05 EST Holiday Time Blues http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5167607 I haven't been on Spark a whole lot the last few months. Things have been crazy in my neck of the woods. Let's face it that's the most popular excuse out there for not taking care of yourself the way you should. <BR> <BR> When my husband first landed in the hospital and we had the big scare it was so easy to eat right, go to the gym and focus on getting healthy. Now that we have gotten used to the routine of his meds, shot and three month check-ups. We have found ourselves slipping not gett... Sat, 15 Dec 2012 20:35:21 EST This coming Weekend http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5120824 Well it's right around the corner....My Dad's wedding. I can't believe that he is really getting married. For some reason I thought he would still be upset about my mom's death. They had been married for 36 years and at the funeral I almost had to peel him off the side of the wall. I thought for a week or two that he himself wasn't going to make it or possibly start drinking very heavily. I never in my wildest dreams would think a month afterwards he would start looking for my mothers replace... Thu, 1 Nov 2012 21:50:56 EST Goal for the End of the Year http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5118051 I have 24lbs to lose in 2 months! <BR> <BR> I want to be under 300 by the end of the year. I don't want to enter another year weighing 300lbs anything! It's a number that I'm not going to accept any longer! <BR> <BR> Steps to get there: <BR> <BR> Gym every other day <BR> Outside activity or Inside depending on the weather <BR> Log food <BR> Keep Active on Spark <BR> Tue, 30 Oct 2012 14:46:54 EST Everything at Once http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5098003 This has been a bad couple of months. As soon as I get insurance going on Brandon and me his hours drop off. We have been robbing Peter to pay Paul almost all year long. The last two months have been really bad. He got the call last thursday for the state job. He is going to be a prison guard. I really didn't want him to do this. I know he isn't going to like it compared to being a plumber. I hate that new construction has basically stopped in this town. So his hours per week has been 15 or 2... Sat, 13 Oct 2012 21:32:46 EST The light http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5064233 Today has been a very strange day for me. Just found out one of our Sunny Gals passed away. It makes you realize that life truly is fleeting. Before this happend I was drowning in all kinds of things. <BR> <BR> Number One being my husband's job. Since the start of this year it's been steadily going down hill. He has been getting less and less hours. Not to mention that I had to get insurance taken out on us and it's almost three hundred bucks every two weeks. As soon as I did this his hours ...

I ate way more than I should have but I'm headed to the gym tonight to work some of it off. Then we headed to the grocery store. As we were leaving someone starts yelling. I really don't pay it any mind. But my husband turns around to look at who was doing the yelling. That's when I hear "You need to tuck your bellies in". But in a much more rude way. <BR> <BR> I just don't understand why people have to judge others. Are they so u...

My Dad called me and pretty much cussed me out. He said that when I was home on the 14th that I was rude to Becky and him. That I didn't spend anytime with them and just hung around my SIL and my bff. Then went on to say he didn't appreciate the comments I made on Facebook pictures he posted. None of them were bad. He just read too much into it. Then told me if I didn't respect his choices he was making I didn't have to be in his life. This all happened whi...

As I don't know the challenge yet this week. I think I'm going to make another plan for this week to go well. The first part of my vacation is more of a stay-cation.

Or at least a few days ago it was. Now it's only bringing him up to 91. In the hospital he is not smoking but as soon as he gets out he is going to.

But I'm only 1 pound away from losing 100lbs! It's getting so close I can see it just around the corner. Can't wait for the scale to say it! Wish that it would say it out loud for me! :-) <BR> <BR> I didn't get to the gym much this month. With Brandon's job and getting sick I really didn't get in what I watned to do. I was hoping to reach 250 by my bday which is July 16th. So in order to get a little closer I h...

Thu, 31 May 2012 22:29:47 EST Can't decide which one! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4906020 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/9/9/l996508480.jpg"> <BR> <BR> This one is still a little snug but fits a little better than before. The only problem I have with it is my stomach. Plus when I sit down you can really see the stomach problems with this dress. I'm not really sure I like the fabric and it's a little warm. Having a thought of taking it back and getting my money back on it! <BR> <BR> <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/7/l175386035.jpg"> <BR> <BR> Th... Thu, 31 May 2012 14:43:49 EST How I lost 95lbs. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4876847 Down 95lbs...almost at 100. Once the number of lbs I have lost started getting impressive to other people. They all have the same question how did you do it? <BR> <BR> The Answer is the same thing they have been telling everyone that has been trying to lose weight for years. EXERCISE AND DIET!! <BR> <BR> It's amazing that the answer is so simple but believe me it is. Of course the only other thing that is involved is determination and will power. How bad do you want it? <BR> <BR> There a...
