Thu, 25 Apr 2013 13:45:33 EST wow sick again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5315715 It seems like for the past 3 months all I have been doing is either being sick or fighting off being sick, it has really made my efforts hard. Especially the days I feel really bad, like yesterday, I couldn't even pull myself up to log in to SP. Then my hubby went to pick up food because I couldn't get myself up to cook. So my food intake was terrible yesterday. I don't know what is going on with me,but I can't seem to shake it. Finising up a second antibiotic and still no where close to bein... Mon, 8 Apr 2013 11:03:45 EST thinking of becoming a healthy personal chef http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5234224 I got layed off when the economy took a dive back in 2009,since then have not really been able to find gainful employment. Cooking has always been a passion of mine ever since I was a little girl able to stand on a chair and help my mom,aunt's or who ever was cooking, I there I brought my first cookbook at the age of 9 with some money I got for a gift. <BR> So today I took the SP poll about what people would like if they could have one thing to help in their weight lose journey. And most sai...

I am happy that I am still committed (I plan to be for the rest of my time here). That doesn't mean I won't allow myself to eat some of the not so healthy things every now and again as a special treat. This time though, I won't let eatng and the butter, fried, sweet stuff take me hostage. I will chose how I let it into my plan and I will alway's hold the upper hand. Because I also love ...

Sun, 13 Jan 2013 14:51:20 EST Thinking about going back to school http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5202561 I really love cooking,and helping people,so I had the idea since I am unemployed,and having some trouble finding a job, That while I am helping my daughter with child care this next year while she finishes her schooling, that I might try to get a degree in something like nurition or wellness coaching so that I could incorperate my love of cooking and heathy living into helping others. Then hopefully both my daughter and I will be able to start new careers,and improve both of our lives, The t...

It's just feels sooooo good, there is no place like home. Love to go visit, Love to travel and explore but never can wait to get home. Everything is comforting and familiar. I just love that feeling!

So I will not have to be there as much for childcare It will be nice to be home more, easier for me to workout,and I will be able to get stuff done at home!

He took me to a bike shop in Stevens Point that carries recuumben trikes. We spent about two hours there,in which time I got to test drive several differnt models. It was so much fun. Also very helpful in learning the differnce in the bikes. I went in thinking I had a model in mind based on research I had done on the net but riding the different types totally changed that. Anyway I ended up picking a trike that wasn't even on my radar screen...

But I really feel kind of like I'm losing the spark, maybe I should reread the book again. I hope that it gets nicer out again soon.

It was extra stressful, and I didn't handle it well.... <BR> <BR> I did okay as far as my eating, but I didn't do so well with dealing with the stress and last night I really let myself down. I started by having a glass of wine which turned into I don't even know how many, And today I am not feeling very well <em>33</em> I really have to learn how to relax in a heathier way!
