SUZIEAJ's SparkPeople Blog SUZIEAJ's Blog on SparkPeople, home of free diet plans and a healthy living community Trying to come back..again. So, a lot has been going on since I've been away! Just a lot of things in my personal life I guess. I've moved recently, twice. It sucked. haha. Going to be moving again in June. That also sucks. <BR> <BR> Really though, I've been trying to make a comeback for months now. Coming back to work out is really hard. <BR> I've gained 10 lbs, and my BMI states that I'm obese, which is VERY worrisome. A lot of my clothes don't fit me properly anymore. <BR> <BR> I've also been going through a mone... Mon, 1 Feb 2016 09:53:56 EST Day #2 Okay, so sadly I did not get to anything on my to -do list yesterday. <BR> But! Today is a new day, it's early and I still have a lot of time before I have to go into work. I have my To-Do list in my phone and I'm going to do as much as I can on it! Got my laundry going right now, so that's something! I didn't work out this morning though, but I'm not going to give myself a hard time about it. If anything, I'll do it tomorrow, for sure! That is an oath to myself! Strength training and cardio.... Tue, 24 Mar 2015 10:32:06 EST Just a few years...Day #1 Last time I updated my blog was in January 2013, a lot has happened since then. Let me try and make this short. <BR> <BR> Back in December of 2013, I suffered a very dark time in my life, and went through a terrible depression. I didn't work for six months, where my now ex-fiance had to strongly support the both of us. In the meantime, I tried to help out at home, but my depression got the better of me. <BR> But, I guess you can say it's behind me now. I have a job, might be moving to new on... Mon, 23 Mar 2015 13:48:02 EST Ugly day. Sun wasn't out today. Am I the only one in the world that hates cloudy days? <BR> <BR> Funny that the same day it was cloudy, the same day I read an article about getting extra vitamin D on the website. I should have gone to buy some, I feel so drained today. <BR> <BR> I did something great today though. Boyfriend wanted McDonalds for dinner, so I planned ahead and tracked my food to see what I could do. 6 piece chicken nuggets, one barbecue sauce and a yogurt and fruit parfait! I feel like... Wed, 16 Jan 2013 00:38:22 EST Sweet Tooth Challenge. About a few days ago, I joined the Official Sweet Tooth Challenge. I haven't had any sweets since then. <BR> <BR> I've had a Nutz Over Chocolate Luna Bar though, but I really don't know if that counts. I use it more for the nutrients in it than the chocolate factor. <BR> <BR> I patted myself on the back again yesterday. My co-workers fiance offered me a cookie, I turned him down. He even wondered if something was wrong with me because I've never turned him down. XD <BR> Just told him I'm t... Thu, 10 Jan 2013 17:23:09 EST Yay! Yesterday and today, I felt felt really good about myself. <BR> <BR> Yesterday when I went to pump gas, I needed to get sunflower seeds. I love those! I suddenly had this urge to buy some chocolate. Probably because I'm on that time of the month. Blech! <em>24</em> Anyways! When I looked at the chocolate to decide what I wanted, I remembered that I'm trying to tame my sweet tooth and I just need to cut down on the sweets! So I turned away and just bought the sunflower seeds! <em>243</em... Mon, 7 Jan 2013 21:56:33 EST Been awhile... With everything going on, the move and the car situation. I was super depressed gaiz. We spent a lot of time and money trying to figure out what was wrong with it. Turns out it was the fuel pump and now it's fixed! <em>30</em> <BR> I got my license almost 3 weeks ago now! I love driving! It's so liberating and so fun. Especially in a sports car. *squeak* <BR> <BR> Sadly, I haven't been tracking like I should and I haven't been working out either. There are still so many things to do in t... Thu, 13 Sep 2012 12:51:40 EST Doing well. Today was an amazing day. Last night was too. I watched Thor with my boyfriend. We've never seen it before and we loved it! Nommed on popcorn and cuddled up watching the movie, quoted memes and laughed. He woke me up early in the morning. *ahem* Sadly, since I was so comfy in his bed I didn't get moving until almost 2PM. I felt bad but I read some of The Spark today that made me not feel so bad anymore. <BR> I'm going to stop beating myself up about not getting things done. I have a tendency ... Thu, 17 May 2012 01:20:32 EST Getting lots of stuff done! This was actually recored on 4/20 Got lots of stuff done and I show my little to-do list/motivational wall! Thu, 26 Apr 2012 13:08:27 EST Easter Holidays = Worst time to eat! I am always so bad at tracking my food around holidays because I am so distracted by the fun. Ugh... Tue, 10 Apr 2012 01:07:20 EST This is my fault, I am responsible. I weighed myself in today: I am back at my starting weight when I restarted the program for a 4th time. I don't really feel like too much of a failure, but I do feel that I have failed myself. <BR> I tell myself all the time that I will work out, and change my lifestyle but I have done very little to do so. <BR> All I have done is make excuses for myself and have wasted my time on this computer looking at 9gag and Facebook for no reason instead of trying to be a part of this community and cha... Sun, 1 Apr 2012 13:07:19 EST First Official SparkPeople Blog Just me doing a introduction and talking about my dream and The Spark Book. Sorry if it's really long but, I just don't know when to shut up. <em>198</em> Wed, 28 Mar 2012 21:38:29 EST Back again. So, this is my fourth time back on Sparkpeople. I am starting out quite roughly, mostly because I'm finding it hard to track everything everyday. A lot of the stuff I buy is not on the SP food list so I have to enter it in manually. It's kind of a pain but I know I have to do it. <BR> <BR> I've moved to Austin now. I have been here since September of last year. I love it, but since I still don't drive, I have to take the bus and it takes about an hour and a half just to get to work. I want t... Sat, 10 Mar 2012 01:16:10 EST Blegh I've been doing okay so far. Been missing a few days here and there but I think I'm doing okay. <BR> <BR> Right now, I am so super tired though. I'm guess I've been overworking myself or something. 8 hour shifts at work, come home and try to work out. I've been wanting to work out in the morning but I can't get myself to want to go to bed early to wake up early to do it. Though when I come home I'm so tired it takes so much out of me just to get up and do it. <BR> <BR> My stomach hurts, eye... Fri, 6 May 2011 22:30:28 EST Been too long. I'm seriously not even sure what happened. I just stopped coming around to SparkPeople and doing everything that I grew habit into. Maybe I just got so tired or something. I haven't been excersing like I should either. My boyfriend and his Mom keep saying I'm losing weight,but compared to what my old chart says(atm it says 133lbs),and what I am now....I've gained 3 lbs. Which isn't bad but still. I need to be LOSING it! <BR> <BR> I'm really dissapointed with myself. I'm hoping I can get back... Wed, 22 Sep 2010 01:16:54 EST Good times! =D So,today has been amazing so far. I woke up and was greeted with the usual "Good morning beautiful" text from my boyfriend which,of course,always makes me happy. Stayed in bed for about an hour until finally getting up. Got naked,and weighed myself....I had to double check. Scale read: 131lbs. I almost freakin cried....I texted my boyfriend with excitment and he is SO happy for me! I am so happy for myself as well. <BR> <BR> Now,I've been stressing out alot from work,which I'm hoping is NOT ... Tue, 11 May 2010 15:04:06 EST Giving myself a pat on the back! I'm really proud of myself. I met alot of my goals today. Calories,Fat,carbs and cholesterol goal! <BR> Something that really mad a diffrence was probably because of this event right here...even my boss was proud of me! : <BR> My boss,Pam,had gone to Pizza Hut with her husband for lunch. She came back with leftover pizza,two slices. It was extra cheese,with breakfast bacon,hamburger and something else. When I got on lunch,she offered it to me,and I quickly turned her down. As tempting as it ... Sat, 24 Apr 2010 00:33:50 EST Week 1 -- This is so difficult. So,I started on April 15th of 2010. <BR> I realized something very intresting....OMFG this is DIFFICULT! I never realized that I would eat so many calories during the day. I was really surprised,and I guess that explains my weight gain over the years. <BR> I actually used to be about 115 to 120 when I used to work at a grocery store pushing carts. Those were better days. Ate as much as I wanted,and didn't worry too much about it. <BR> <BR> Now,with my weight well over what it should be,and s... Thu, 22 Apr 2010 00:11:53 EST
