I was all ready to get back on track last Wednesday after I posted. While at work, I was great. But when I went home for dinner, all bets were off. I don't even want to remember what I ate. Then I had a sit down with myself and decided I was getting back on track. That lasted Thursday and Friday. I planned out my meal... Thu, 10 Apr 2014 11:32:16 EST Do what YOU love! I have my alarm set for 5:00 am during the week. I’m a full time CPA. I can’t always guarantee that I will be home at 5:00 every night. Sometimes my work day goes into the work night. So why do I get up at 5:00 am? I want to get my workout in. Of course I would rather be sleeping. If you knew me you would know I love my sleep. My bed is my favorite place in the house. But I have to get my workout in. And the nights are so random. <BR> <BR> I have heard a lot of people complaining to me abou... Thu, 3 Apr 2014 10:38:19 EST 9 months have past and still going strong Apparently 9 months have past since I last blogged. I hate writing and that is why I am not a writer! However, for the most part I have not given up and am still going strong. Yes I have had some rough days where I slacked. There was a week when I was on vacation and I worked out every day with my sister and watched what I ate. Some days I splurged a little but it was vacation. Then I went on another vacation, all inclusive to Punta Cana... my husband and I went to the gym once. It was so s... Tue, 5 Oct 2010 15:48:50 EST January BootCamp Day 1 Measurements What the heck happened to me this holiday season? I was doing well and working out and tracking then all the sudden I stepped on the scale and I gained... A LOT! I almost started crying! It seriously made me very upset with myself. I had to sit down and think about everything. <BR> <BR> I can say for the most part I worked out daily. The only time I did not work out is when I was sick. I realized that being off of work along with all the christmas and holiday parties I really hadn't be... Sun, 3 Jan 2010 14:13:10 EST There are always EXCUSES! There are always excuses. What's yours? Too tired? Too much work? Favorite tv show on? Just want to be lazy? ... They can go on FORVER. But as long as you have an excuse not to go the gym, workout, or eat right you have to have an excuse to do all those things. <BR> <BR> The other day I asked my husband if he was going to the gym. I think his exucse was he was too tired. I poliety pointed that he always had an excuse and he just looked at me and said he does but it is because they are tru... Wed, 11 Nov 2009 14:31:40 EST Pushing through the Lazy I have a group of friends from all over the country. We all meet on a weight loss site. We have never met. We email every day. They are great and we keep eachother motivated. <BR> <BR> I ask them on a daily basis who is 'going to work out with me tonight.' Just knowing that they will be working out makes me go to the gym or pop a workout video in. I don't want to let them down. They are my cross country workout buddies. <BR> <BR> Yesterday when I asked one girls answer was she wasn't go... Thu, 29 Oct 2009 10:33:53 EST Working out for the Game First off I want to thank all the random girls that I have never met or spoke to before for commenting on my blog yesterday. It really gave me a pick me up. Knowing that people are actually following my progress is a great way to stay motivated. I didn't know if I wanted to give up my weight watchers membership but I can see that this is basically the same and the support is here as well. Thanks again girls! <BR> <BR> Second... today was a little better then yesterday. But still annoying.... Thu, 15 Oct 2009 18:57:43 EST Getting Started...Or should I say Getting Started AGAIN So my friend told me about this site about a week ago. I need to get back on track. <BR> <BR> Today was a crappy day at work. Being an accountant the day before a tax deadline is the worst. I was pulled in all different directions. I even missed lunch b/c I had so much work to do. I finally at my sandwhich at my desk. <BR> <BR> My husband has to work late so I was on my own for dinner. I was planning on eating a smart ones meal and some soup. One the way home I was thinking of all the... Wed, 14 Oct 2009 18:41:27 EST
