If any of you were around in the 90's you would know this song. Anyway, it got me thinking about excuses. I find myself making excuses all the time. <BR> <BR> I just had a stressful day at work so I deserve a treat. I deserve a night of laziness because I'm too tired. I deserve a fast food meal because I'm too... Sun, 3 Feb 2013 15:47:36 EST Don't Stop..believin' http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5232837 There's just something about that Journey song that gets me up and smiling :) <BR> <BR> That needs to be my theme song this month because I find it so easy to give up on myself and listen to all the other negative voices. I haven't posted anything in January unfortunately so I'll do a quick recap. <BR> <BR> School started the second week and January and I find myself getting so stressed because of it. Money and time mainly. When I'm stressed I eat and when I stress eat, I eat donuts an... Fri, 1 Feb 2013 08:47:25 EST New Years Resolutions for 2013 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5180644 I love New Years! Other than Christmas, I think it may be my favorite holiday :) I don't know if it's because I'm a failing perfectionist and love to organize and plan, but just the idea of a fresh start is appealing to me. This year especially! <BR> <BR> 2012 was not my best year, though it did have some highlights. I went on vacation and got to see a chunk of the country from South Dakota down to Florida with stops in Nashville, Atlanta, and Pensacola Beach (my favorite part ). Dylan... Sun, 30 Dec 2012 09:14:15 EST Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5168918 I just finished reading over my past posts and I am speechless. I've been through a lot over the last few years and apparently was quite depressed. I'm happy to say that I am in a better place today then I was back then, but I'm starting to slip back there again. <BR> <BR> Today I forgive myself for all of the past mistakes, wrong choices, lack of action that I have made in the past. From now on I'm just going to do my best and forget the rest:) Consistency is the key to success I kno... Mon, 17 Dec 2012 09:38:32 EST Starting week 6 of Turbo Fire's Prep Schedule and my Achievements thus far http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4072554 Whew! It's been 3 weeks since my last post. I was hoping to get here every week but life happens and things get busy! I have been consistent with my workouts and am still Loving it!! I actually look forward to waking up before 6 and getting it done! I just feel sooooo amazing afterwards. I have so much energy and I just can't sit still.

Mon, 7 Mar 2011 09:35:21 EST Jumpin' Back with Turbo Fire http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4015363 Whew! It's pretty amazing to read my thoughts from a couple of years ago. I definitely was not in a good place and it's sad that I didn't not stick with program because I definitely needed it. But obviously was not ready to change and I had to go through a lot of things to finally get where I am today. <BR> <BR> What makes this time different than any other time? For starters, I'm happier now than I have been in awhile. I stepped out in faith and prayed that this would be my year. I t... Sun, 13 Feb 2011 22:12:50 EST I was having a bad day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1347848 Yesterday was an emotional day for me. I know a lot of it had to do that I was hormonal, and I just became so disgusted with myself. I ate all day just because I could. At night I layed in bed and I cried. I haven't done that in a while and I asked for help. Help me change, help me want to change. I also cried about my mom. It will be 7 years next month since she passed away. 7 YEARS!!! It just does not seem possible. I wondered if she was disappointed for the things that I have don... Mon, 21 Jul 2008 00:18:37 EST Conflict: The war with in myself http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1317069 Okay, so I haven't been as active as I wanted to be and the lightbulb finally came on yesterday as to tell me why. Part of me still does not want to change. After reading some of the entries on the yahoo group for IOWL, I've figured out that I feel I deserve these things because that is one thing I am in control of, have freedom to do. With me being a single mother of a wonderful boy, I can't go do whatever I want to do when I want to do it. Before I had Dylan I went out a lot more, hung ...

I promised myself that I was going to be completely honest and put everything in here that I have in my journal. Being honest with yourself is one key to success.&#10;So here goes!&#10;WHERE ARE YOUR NOW?:Describe yourself&#10;&#10;I am bouncing around 200lbs. My breasts are a size F/G, in other words: humongous (if i don't have a bra on, they actually touch my belly button) *...
