Today is going a lot better than yesterday. Yesterday was hard. Today I get to add peanut butter to everything I eat so it is working out a lot better. I got on the scale last night and it didn't like me so much, lol. I am hoping when this is all over that it will like me better. <em>192</em> . Yesterday I felt a little better, so I got some cleaning done so I am extremely happy about that. I hope to do some more today. Can you tell my weekend is boring? <em>253</em> <BR> Sun, 3 Mar 2013 11:05:21 EST Detox Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5269513 Today is detox day 1. My bf told me how to do this with fruit and vegs. Today is just fruit and vegs. Tomorrow is adding peanut butter. Day 3 is eating a little more also every 2 to 3 hours. This morning I made pancakes for everyone while I had a banana. It took a lot of will power not to make me one. <em>334</em> I think today isn't going to be so bad. I feel a little better than I have the rest of the week. I have a lot of cleaning to do. Hopefully that will keep me busy so I won't think... Sat, 2 Mar 2013 09:44:02 EST The Weekend is Coming http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5268729 I can not believe Friday is already here. It feels like this week flew by. I guess that is because I have felt so bad and haven't really done anything. <BR> I was reading posts earlier for the teams. I noticed a lot had weigh in today. Do most people weigh in on Friday? I'm debating this. Right now I weigh in on Monday's and Friday's. I was thinking about going to once a week. I was thinking of doing it once a month but I believe I need more motivation than that. I am just curious what every... Fri, 1 Mar 2013 15:06:56 EST Another Blog, Another Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5266497 Today hasn't been so good. I had a bad migraine today and was extremely sleepy from the migraine and my meds I take for them. I ended up sleeping most of the day. I didn't workout based on these facts. The migraine came on yesterday afternoon. It started slowly right after my workout. I felt so good after my workout I was hoping it wouldn't become a full blown migraine but it did. It has been kicking my butt ever since. Tomorrow is a new day so I can't beat myself up over today, or at least t... Wed, 27 Feb 2013 21:16:44 EST Aftermath of Workout! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5264611 Thank you for all the encouragement I received from my previous blog. It helped to get me motivated. Instead of doing Turbo Jam: Turbo Sculpt I decided to try Turbo Jam: Cardio Party. I had to take two breaks to get water but I made it through the whole workout, the whole thing, not part of it or half of it, but the WHOLE thing! <em>224</em> I was so excited I took a new photo and added it up here. I couldn't keep up exactly because like I said before I have no coordination at all but I d... Tue, 26 Feb 2013 11:30:25 EST Work Out Time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5264493 I have been sitting here for an hour and a half trying to get motivated to work out. I am using Turbo Jam with the 5 workout dvd set. I did the Learn & Burn off and on for a while but I found it hard to keep up. I have no rhythm, lol. I skipped the 20 Minute workout the other day and went straight to Turbo Sculpt. It can involve hand weights. I choose to use them. It goes a whole lot slower pace and is more about form. I find that I get more mentally out of it because I if I get off track, i... Tue, 26 Feb 2013 09:50:10 EST Day 4 Sunday - Fast Food and More http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5262550 I was out today and stopped for fast food. I didn't make good choices and it was extremely obvious when I did my food tracker today. I had just about all my calories for the whole day in one meal. <em>2</em> I have to say I enjoyed my fast food meal but I feel bad for it. I am going to have to do a lot of working out tomorrow to make up for today. <BR> I also found a measuring tape that I am going to be using tomorrow and from now on. I am happy about that. I haven't ever used one on ... Sun, 24 Feb 2013 20:34:57 EST Saturday Day 3 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5261281 It is Saturday Day 3. I haven't worked out since day 1 but will get back on that soon. I have a friend that is suppose to let me borrow some workout dvds. I can't wait to try them. What dvds does everyone else like? I need something that is fun. I have been doing Turbo Jam. It is really fun but I am so uncoordinated it is hard for me to keep up, lol. I'm glad there isn't a video of me doing that anywhere, lol. I have been keeping up with logging my food. It is amazing how little food I eat in... Sat, 23 Feb 2013 16:58:12 EST Day 1 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5258582 I have finally reached the "oh crap" for my weight again. I kept putting on clothes that I can't fit into. I have settled into the same comfy clothes for months. My wonderful man went and bought me some pants that were a size 18. They fit and I look good. Now I want to be in a smaller size because I want to look my very best and for the health benefits. (Really just to say I can fit into size such and such, lol.) I got a new haircut the other day that is a shorty, short one. I think it would ... Thu, 21 Feb 2013 10:11:01 EST It's Been To Long http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4200041 Hey everyone! It has been way to long since I have been here. I have been thinking about all of you and hope you have stayed on track. I have to admit I have not at all been exercising like I should by no means, but I have been trying to eat better. Also, my husband and I separated so that has helped my weight loss a lot, lol. I only have about 40 more pounds to go before I reach my goal. :) I have missed everyone so much I am off to read your blogs! :) Sat, 30 Apr 2011 09:37:26 EST It's Friday :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3347414 Hum, I am a week or more behind in weigh-in so I figured this morning I would do it. I lost a few pounds. It wasn't as much as I wanted but slow and steady will still win the race. <em>30</em> <BR> <BR> Every since my hubby had his surgery our food style has changed a lot. He has lost 72lbs so far and I am so proud of him! I am finding that I still crave a lot of stuff. I have found it is extremely hard to cook for just us two. I haven't done much cooking at all in the past month. ... Fri, 18 Jun 2010 11:34:50 EST Supper & Weigh-In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3276996 I forgot to post yesterday. My hubby and I had tuna steak for supper last night. He ended up cooking it with just a little creole seasoning. I am not a big seafood person but I was able to eat some of it. It tasted like real beef steak till the end. It was extremely good to be seafood. <em>492</em> <BR> <BR> Also we ended up getting pedometers and a small weight set to add to our exercising stuff. <em>23</em> I was thinking about getting the 10 lb Kettlebell set. Has anyone ev... Fri, 28 May 2010 11:39:40 EST Another Great Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3271848 Can you believe two great days in a row???? Ok, minus all of the meds I have taken for my head, lol. Today I decided to go get my hair cut. It was over half way down my back when it was wet, and now it is at my jawline. It is a big difference. I haven't told my friends. I can't wait to see them. <em>81</em> My husband brought up a great point. I should have done the Locks of Love. I think that is what it is called, when you cut your hair and donate it to make wigs for people that ... Wed, 26 May 2010 21:56:14 EST Question http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3268823 I have noticed while going to other peoples page that they have pictures of "I lost # of lbs with SparkPeople." Does anyone know where to get these from? I just saw one for ten pounds and I would like to have one too. <em>334</em> <em>252</em> Wed, 26 May 2010 02:11:13 EST Fun http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3268822 My hubby and I went to see our nephews tonight. I loved every minute of it. The oldest had to show me his new bunny rabbit and his lizard. He is just like his mom and loves all type of animals. He will be turning eight this year. As we were walking back to the front porch he decided he was going to climb the side railing. Once he got up there he realized it was high and he couldn't climb down. I told him to jump but he was scared, so I grabbed him and put him down. He had to run in an... Wed, 26 May 2010 02:10:33 EST Thinking http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3264869 I am so happy my hubby is doing so well. I am so proud of him. <em>224</em> <BR> I can't help but wonder if I am going to hold him back. I know he likes for me to exercise with him. Right now we are either walking around the local school track, walking around our yard, or working out on the Wii. Most days I feel so bad, but I push through for him. Then I suffer for it later on in the day. I just hope I am strong enough to do this for him (and me) for most of the time. I have said m... Mon, 24 May 2010 23:43:26 EST Saturday http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3257010 HEY EVERYONE!!!! Thank you for all of the thoughts and prayers. My husband's surgery went well. Yesterday was the start of his third week post-opt. He has lost almost 50 pounds!!! If you want to go tell him "hey" we just set him up with a page. He is SgtSully :) Yes I finally sat him down to get him to start a page, lol. <em>20</em> <BR> I didn't realize there are some many gastric bypass team pages up here. I think he is going to find a lot of support that he needs that I can't g... Sat, 22 May 2010 14:09:20 EST Thursday Weigh-In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3203044 I did my weigh in this morning. I am happy with my weight lose so far. It is amazing what a liquid diet and some chicken noodle soup can help with. <em>334</em> The next two weeks will be about the same I believe. I might start adding some foods. I haven't exactly figured that part out yet. <BR> Well tomorrow is the big day for my hubby. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. <em>247</em> He is the greatest hubby and man ever. <em>285</em> I want to be together forever. ... Thu, 6 May 2010 21:32:26 EST Friday Weigh-In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3179117 Today is "Weigh In Friday" as I like to call them now a days. <em>30</em> I know after not feeling well for so long last week I jumped on my Wii. I think it was maybe Wednesday. Anyway I didn't put my weight up here b/c it wasn't a Friday. I had gained 4 pounds, but it was also early evening and I had been drinking fluids all day. I feel this number was not accurate. Friday rolled around and I missed weigh in so today here I am. I am under 200lbs. <em>224</em> I am so happy I don... Fri, 30 Apr 2010 12:01:18 EST I'm Glad to be Back http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3165080 Well after being gone for what seems like forever I am back. <em>334</em> My grandmother was in the hospital for almost a week. Then the day after she got home I got put in the hospital for two weeks. I have spent the past week trying to get adjusted. My hubby is having gastric by-pass surgery soon so I have gone on the liquid diet with him plus a can of chicken noodle soup a day. I had to have some kind of food. <em>106</em> We have gone walking at the track one day that I actually f... Mon, 26 Apr 2010 22:53:19 EST Friday Weigh-In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3045277 This morning was my weigh-in. Down to 200.4! I am so happy. I never thought I would see 200 again. I woke up this morning with an awful headache, so this is going to be short and sweet. I hope everyone has a great weekend. <em>30</em> Fri, 26 Mar 2010 08:54:52 EST Yet Again Another Weigh-In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3018814 Well, I just got done with my weigh-in for the week. It was the first time I had been on my Wii since last week when I weighed in. <em>42</em> On the other hand I have done a lot more cleaning around the house than I normally do. The downside to that is I didn't feel like working out b/c most days I was in the bed or on the couch after cleaning for short spurts. Some how I managed to lose 0.9lbs this week. It brings my total loss to 16.4lbs. <em>334</em> I really thought I was goi... Fri, 19 Mar 2010 11:13:37 EST Weigh-in day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2991986 Well, today was weigh-in day. I gained 0.6lbs. I think it came from a lack of not working out everyday, eating more sweet stuff, and me cutting my smoking back. I have gone from one pack every day or two to one pack in four days. (I still have a few left so that might turn into five days.) I am still happy b/c I did the best I could, besides eating more sweet stuff. <em>475</em> I will have to try harder this week! <em>91</em> Under 200lbs here I come! <em>192</em> Fri, 12 Mar 2010 14:57:32 EST Today was awful (Thursday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2989945 Get ready to listen to me whine some more! (I warned you)...I am so thankful for everything I have. I am so thankful for my hubby, my family, everything. I can not deal with these headaches/migraines much longer. I have had about four hours of sleep in the past 24 hours. I had a therapy appointment this morning and I actually called and rescheduled. The therapy is for the stress of my headaches/migraines. I felt so bad all I could see was black spots and I knew it was not safe to drive,...

Wed, 10 Mar 2010 19:49:25 EST I think I am a turtle http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2969394 I think I am a turtle b/c it seems like I am moving so slow. I actually made it to 32 minutes on my Wii today. <em>33</em> I am going to try again later to get another 30 minutes in, but we will see. I am trying to work my way back up to doing more, but it seems like it is slow. I know I will get there!!! I am going to try to clean a little bit. Some movement is better than no movement! <BR> <em>135</em> <BR> <BR> Update: I got another 31 minutes today!!! My final total today w... Sun, 7 Mar 2010 14:39:35 EST Weigh-In Was Today http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2962545 As of today I have lost 16.1lbs in total. I am so happy. I reached my February goal of losing 6lbs. My March goal starts today and ends April 5th. I set it to lose 7lbs this month. I am also 3.3 lbs away from being at 200lbs. I can not wait to be under 200lbs. I never thought I would have gotten this far. Without sparkpeople I am sure I wouldn't have. Thank you all for the encouraging words. I am so happy today. Yesterday was my mom's birthday so I went to her house. I even weighe... Fri, 5 Mar 2010 14:15:31 EST Late Evening / Early Morning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2951487 No one will believe me, but I was able to do 11 minutes on my Wii today and also do some laundry. I am so happy I could jump up and down. It actually said I had lost some weight, but I will hold off getting excited till Friday. <BR> <BR> I tracked my food for today. I found out I thought I had over indulged, but I am actually under by a lot of calories. I have to find something to eat before I go to bed. I was thinking about popcorn. The kind I have now isn't the healthiest b/c it is ... Wed, 3 Mar 2010 02:07:05 EST Friday 2-26-10 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2931719 Just in case anyone is wondering I did not get the job. I called this morning and she told me I did not get one of the positions. <BR> <BR> This happened after I woke up with an awful headache and wanted some orange juice. I made one of the little frozen containers. I didn't realize how little orange juice they made. My glasses I drink out of most days hold 32 ozs. Well before I knew it I had drank this whole pitcher of orange juice. I went and laid back down. It did take long for t... Fri, 26 Feb 2010 15:00:01 EST What to say? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2925762 I haven't worked out in almost two weeks....I know not good. I am going to try to get at least a few minutes in today and get things back on track. I know I said I wouldn't let my headaches/migraines get me down, but they have lately. My plan is to start back at a few minutes a few times a day and see how that goes. I have been trying to drink my water, but I have also been drinking at least one drink a few days trying to get a little caffeine to maybe calm my head down a little. <BR> <B... Thu, 25 Feb 2010 09:03:48 EST Weigh-In Day of I don't know what time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2901529 Weigh-in results are that I lost 2.8lbs. Am I proud no. It didn't come from me working hard this week, tracking my food, or even making sure I got all my water in. It came from stress and my headaches. After the snow cleared, yes I went and got a pack of cigarettes. I only have one left so I'm hoping AGAIN that is will be my last one. <BR> On a happier note I have a job interview in a few hours. Everyone please pray for me because I need this job really, really, really bad. Based on t... Fri, 19 Feb 2010 11:19:33 EST Today Was Weigh-In Day http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2875315 Today was weigh-in day and I GAINED 0.4 lbs this week. After being sick and working so hard I thought I might come close to my goal but not reach it, but to gain is just awful. I took that frustration and went walking at our local park today. My walking laps including trail and parking lot area where: <BR> <BR> Lap 1 = 17 min <BR> Lap 2 = 16 min <BR> Lap 3 = 15 min <BR> <BR> Then it is suppose to snow tonight again and it was getting cold and I was extremely tired so I didn't do the four... Fri, 12 Feb 2010 19:35:26 EST Tomorrow http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2872121 Well tomorrow is the big weigh-in day. To reach my next goal I set on my Wii I need to lose 6lbs. b/c it is showing I gained almost two pounds. I try to set a goal on it each month b/c I find that is easier to reach than a few months or just one week down the road. <BR> I have to say I am feeling so much better from the pneumonia. I am so happy. I actually had energy today, but than my headache got worse so I had to hit the couch for a little while. I have learned two things: I wouldn... Thu, 11 Feb 2010 22:28:19 EST I Can Be Around People Again! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2866615 Well, I went to the doctor yesterday and he told me my pneumonia is clearing up and I can be around people again. I still have about a week worth of meds to finish and I don't have all my energy back but I am on my way to recovering. Yesterday I went to my moms house after the doctor's visit. Last night I went to my friend P's house. She gave me some cookies and muffins to bring home. They were really good but I let my hubby eat most of them. Today my mom and brother both surprised me a... Wed, 10 Feb 2010 16:25:24 EST My First Workout http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2854364 Ok I tried, I tried, I tried....but all I could do was 11 minutes and then I had to use my inhaler. It was mostly yoga I did. Tomorrow if I feel up to it I am going to try for the 11 again or maybe 15, but it depends on how I feel. <BR> Once again I smoked my "last" cigarette a few hours ago. I already am fighting with myself over that. It is my battle I have to fight it myself. Notice the irony in the first paragraph I say I used my inhaler and in the second I talk about my last cigare... Sun, 7 Feb 2010 23:54:47 EST Weigh-In Time http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2848538 I forgot to weigh-in yesterday so I did it this morning. I lost 3.1 lbs this week, so I guess being sick agrees with me (just joking). I rather be working out and eating than dealing with this. I got on the Wii long enough to do the fast BMI and not the balance games today, so once again I don't know how long it will be before I start working out again. My food intake is picking up so I am going to try to start tracking that today. How is everyone else doing? <em>91</em> Sat, 6 Feb 2010 12:56:26 EST Friday...and the verdict is in http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2846756 Well I just jumped on the Wii thinking I was going to workout. Let me tell you how wrong I was. I got up there and did my weight and two balance games and now I can't breath, so still no working out. I went to the doctor yesterday and found out I had full blown pneumonia so I don't know how long it will be before I can workout and get my eating and everything back under control. Today is Friday and of course I forgot to weigh-in this morning so if I can remember I will do it tomorrow morn... Fri, 5 Feb 2010 22:22:43 EST Tuesday...where to start? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2833054 Ok Friday I lost 2.2lbs so I am happy about that. I have not worked out any since Friday b/c I have been sick and really hadn't had any energy to do anything but sleep and lay around. My hubby told me tomorrow he is taking me to the doctor, but lets hope he doesn't b/c I think I am getting a little better already. I got on the site today to track what I ate and drank for today b/c the rest of the week there hasn't really been anything to it. <BR> <BR> Also I am still fighting the smoking.... Tue, 2 Feb 2010 22:08:47 EST The Demon That Got Me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2811214 Well, I am so sorry to say that for the past five days I have been smoking. I don't have anything to blame it on, but I just wanted to so I did. I think the most I ever smoked in one day was five cigarettes, so as of tomorrow I am back to day one of not smoking. I feel like I let everyone down. Especially my hubby. He is having Gastric Bypass surgery later this year and had to quit b/c of that and here I am smoking. I hope this time I will have the strength to not pick the habit back up... Thu, 28 Jan 2010 22:33:37 EST Friday 3rd Weigh-In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2780239 Can you say disappointed? I gained 2.4 lbs this week and I have no one to blame but myself. I have been slipping on my eating better and on my workouts. All I can say is I will try harder this week. The good news is I am still not smoking so maybe that has something to do with it too. One step at a time and I will get there. I was so worried about getting weighed today I am up at 4am. Well now that I know I am off to bed. How is everyone else doing this weekly weigh-in? <em>193</em> Fri, 22 Jan 2010 04:18:57 EST I know I can do this.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2769844 Today we spent most of the day with some doctors for my hubby b/c he is planning on having the gastric bypass surgery in the next few months. It was a long day. I took a nap before we went and took a nap when I came home and still don't feel like working out. I know I can do this, it is just a matter of sucking up the pain and dealing with it. I have some many things I want to do like play real sports outside, go for a walk, and go back to work, but this pain is getting me right now. I k... Tue, 19 Jan 2010 22:44:49 EST Friday 2nd Weigh-In http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2749304 I just finished with my 2nd weekly weigh-in....um I lost 0.2lbs. It is a loss so I am happy. I have to reflect on what I could have done better. There were 2 or 3 days where I couldn't work out like I should and I didn't work out at all. No matter how bad I feel I need to try to work out at least 5 minutes a day. I stopped smoking so I am sure I have picked up some extra food somewhere so I need to make sure I account for everything I eat. I have not been including gum or sugar free cand... Fri, 15 Jan 2010 11:45:50 EST My Birthday! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2747719 Well I am the big 30! I did good. I got almost an hour of workout in and didn't eat but a medium size piece of cake, which is good for me, b/c I like the large pieces myself. I also had the no sugar added ice cream and only a little of that. I LOVE ice cream so that is a big one for me. I am so surprised I made it through my birthday. Tomorrow is weigh in day so we'll see how that goes. Also I was on day three of not smoking, but I had to have one for the big 30! Other than that one s... Fri, 15 Jan 2010 00:15:39 EST What to do.... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2737404 Today for my exercise I went walking around a store for two hours shopping. Yes it was a work out. I did very bad b/c I missed breakfast and lunch. My hubby went to the store today and got me some healthier food to make sure I start getting all three meals in a day. <BR> Also I smoked my last cigarette yesterday afternoon so I know some weight is going to come back till I get all that out of my system. I am staying positive. Making small changes at a time and not dwelling on if I mess ... Tue, 12 Jan 2010 22:53:49 EST My Party! :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2724320 You will not believe this but the party I was making treats for last night was a surprise birthday party for me!!!! I was so excited when I found it. I had a great time. The guys cooked me a huge steak and bake potato and ev1 else they cooked hamburgers and sausages. It was great. Then after we all ate some people sang Karaoke and then we played the Wii so I got a little exercise in. It was a great start to my birthday! I love all my friends and family that helped. <BR> Now back to ex... Sun, 10 Jan 2010 15:41:56 EST Friday 1/8/10 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2716528 I lost 8 lbs this week for my official weigh in and I am so happy. Now if I can only keep up the work. Today I felt so bad I didn't work out then for supper I had a turkey hungry man. I didn't even think to look at the nutrients I just ate it. I also tried some of those Hot Pockets Side Shots Mini Cheeseburgers. Those little things taste like a fast food cheeseburger to me. I am not a supporter of hot pockets but they are kind of good. Tonight I am going to make white chocolate dipped ... Fri, 8 Jan 2010 19:33:21 EST Thursday 1-7-10 http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2711210 Well today my best friend came over and worked out on the Wii with me. We had a large time. Now she wants one. She will be the fourth person I inspired to get one. I think Wii owes me some commission, lol. <BR> I didn't do good today on eating. I ate breakfast but left out lunch again b/c we were having so much fun on the Wii I wasn't hungry. I will be eating chicken breast for supper so I know I won't forget that one. I am doing good drinking my water. <BR> Tomorrow will be my first... Thu, 7 Jan 2010 18:54:21 EST Monthly Goal http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2703936 I had set my monthly goal on my Wii for 5 lbs this month. I have decided Fridays are my official weigh in day, but today I crossed my 5 lbs lost for the month! My first official weigh in isn't till this Friday for the first time of the new year. I am not going to count my official weight till Friday so lets hope I keep the work up and don't have another day of feeling so bad I can't get up there for at least one routine on my Wii Fit Plus. I know it is most likely water weight or somethin... Wed, 6 Jan 2010 12:34:08 EST Feeling Guilty http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2694489 I have completely blown today unless I manage to workout before I go to bed which is doubtful at this time. I can't seem to get my food choices or portions right to get within my ranges. Either it is way to low like yesterday or why to high like today. Either I over analysis and don't eat enough or I indulge and eat to much. I guess I just have to get in the right frame of mind. <BR> Also, today I haven't worked out at all b/c my hubby is home and using the living room the Wii is in, but ... Mon, 4 Jan 2010 21:05:10 EST My Wii and me http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=2684546 This is day three of me starting to lose weight again. I have done nothing but worked out on my Wii with my Wii Fit Plus game for a little over an hour through out the day every day. The first two days it said I gained and then this morning it said I lost 2.2 lbs. I am so excited but at the same time I know your weight goes up and down every day. I worked out on it for 15 minutes afterward and the whole time I was happy it showed I lost weight then at the same time I was like no it can't ... Sun, 3 Jan 2010 10:15:49 EST
