I am exhausted, I have a headache, and I have a sore throat. <BR> <BR> I DO NOT want to be getting sick! <BR> <BR> I WILL NOT get sick! <BR> <BR> To keep from getting/staying sick I have a plan: <BR> <BR> Gargle with hot salt water and take a teaspoon of honey & lemon juice. (to get rid of this pesky sore throat.) Eat a healthy breakfast. Drink a ton of water. Go for a walk in this beautiful weather. Go to bed early tonight. Oh and actually try to get... Mon, 12 Apr 2010 10:55:38 EST I'm back :) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=3070378 Oh spark, how I've missed you. I've been at it on here for 4 days now and I am remembering why I loved it so much last year. <BR> <BR> I did pretty darn good without you but I think I need your help again. Last January I was at 163lbs by march I was down to 154! I am back up to 159 and ready to lose those pesky 5-10lbs again before summer. <BR> <BR> My plan: <BR> track my Calories (1200-1400/day) <BR> track my exercise (running / ab work / will add strength training soon!) <BR> <BR... Thu, 1 Apr 2010 18:06:10 EST BAD weekend! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1903211 I don't want to elaborate too much on the atrocity that was this weekend. <BR> <BR> Long story short...We ate Mexican food for lunch on Saturday followed by birthday cupcakes (2) and birthday lemoncake (1/2 slice) and birthday yellowcake (1 slice) then BBQ on Sunday for lunch. To top all that off...I have a sharp pain in my right knee when I run so my 3 mile run today turned into a 2 mile followed by a mile walk. <BR> <BR> BAD weekend... <BR> <BR> ...here's to a better week :-) Sun, 22 Mar 2009 21:23:27 EST Jumping the gun... http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1889946 WOOHOO!!! I am so excited this morning! :) <BR> <BR> My scheduled "weigh in" and body composition testing is tomorrow but I stepped on the scale about 30 minutes ago and it read... <BR> <BR> drum roll... <BR> <BR> 156!! <BR> <BR> Tomorrow will be exactly 1 month from the day that I started this journey - thanks in part to tight fitting jeans and a handy dandy Bella Band. So in 1 month I went from 163 to 156 - 7 pounds!! Holy Moly! <BR> <BR> Can you tell I'm a little excited? <BR>... Wed, 18 Mar 2009 08:21:39 EST Early Success...maybe http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1869368 On February 26th I got a "before" body composition done at the gym. The results were: 161 lbs 26.02% body fat (41.89 lbs of fat) <BR> <BR> Yesterday, March 10th I weighed in again using the same Omron Bioelectric Impedance Monitor. In 2 weeks my new results are: 159 lbs 23.8% body fat (37.84lbs of fat) <BR> <BR> Now I don't know how accurate these devices are and I hate to get my hopes up but...holy cow if the readings are true then i lost 4 lbs of fat and gained 2 lbs of muscle! I... Wed, 11 Mar 2009 10:11:23 EST The Beginning http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=1857738 I had one of those days a couple weeks ago...you know the ones where you grab your favorite pair of jeans and they squeeze you (in all the WRONG places!) Well I got creative that day - I stopped into a MATERNITY store (I am not pregnant!) and created an elaborate story about a "friend" that just found out she was pregnant and I wanted to buy her a Bella Band as a gift. If you have never heard of the Bella Band you HAV E to look it up - It is awesome and it totally works for non-pregnant peo... Sat, 7 Mar 2009 09:33:18 EST
