Considering we're getting married at the end of the month, these were very late! Fortunately they turned out great! Here's one of my favorites: <BR> <img src=""> Tue, 4 Aug 2009 19:47:08 EST Weekend "Diet" Okay, it's becoming painfully obvious that I have a problem sticking with a diet on weekends. I don't count calories, I eat more than I should, and sometimes even eat things I shouldn't be eating at all. It's like I loose all willpower over the weekend. I'm always able to get back on the wagon on Monday, and that's good, but I have sabotaged all my efforts from the previous week (at least it feels that way). I need to figure out some way to keep myself on track, even when my schedule is a... Mon, 9 Mar 2009 16:01:05 EST Grrrreat Day I don't know what it is (certainly not the gray weather outside), but I'm feeling great today. I've also hardly eaten anything since I haven't been hungry, and I'm usually cranky if I haven't eaten within an hour of waking. I feel peppy and happy. I was feeling this way last night as well when I was thinking of my amazing fiance and how lucky I am to have him in my life! Hugs to all! <em>247</em> Thu, 5 Mar 2009 16:01:59 EST Off days I've had a couple interesting days diet-wise. I didn't eat enough yesterday and I ate too much today. I was thinking about the fasting that's coming up at church this month, and I think I psyched myself into not eating yesterday. Today, I wasn't going to be home all day, and didn't bring anything with me, so ended up eating Chinese food. I think I averaged the right amount of calories, but I don't think that was the goal... Tue, 3 Mar 2009 17:31:53 EST Brides to Be I've actually joined my first Spark Team today! After all these years of being on SP, I never took the time to figure out teams. I know, sad. Anyway, I'm very excited to get to know other future brides and their plans. It's so wonderful! Thu, 19 Feb 2009 19:30:25 EST Too much weight loss? I had no idea... I realized that I now weigh 132 lbs. I had promised my mom that I wouldn't go below 131 lbs, since she's been concerned about me loosing too much weight. So this weekend, I decided to eat a little high on my calories. I'm back up a pound. This is such a hard balance to maintain. I don't want to loose, but I don't want to gain. Argh. I think loosing weight is much easier than this. Tue, 19 Sep 2006 18:39:56 EST Trouble Goal I figured I'd start my journaling with an action step, but it's taking me awhile to figure out where my biggest problem lies. I thought it was working out consistently, but I actually work hard 3-4 days a week, all day, on my house, currently replacing the roof. Just because I don't get to a gym, doesn't mean I'm not exercising. I think the area I most slip up in is my morning and evening routines. I have short lists to keep my house in order that I should do every day, and I've been wor... Wed, 2 Aug 2006 12:59:40 EST
