My first week I only exercised like 2 days, 2nd week I was to blah, and sore from exercising that I didn't do anything! This week isn't starting out so well either! <BR> <BR> This time of year is pretty rough on me. My dad's birthday was yesterday. He died when I was 12. Even when things seem to be doing ok, when this time of year comes around I just dip into a bit of a low stage. I wouldn't say depressed, because it's not that bad. Just blah! Even if I am n... Tue, 5 Jun 2012 16:24:15 EST First week was ok! Stressfull weekend, ends up to low start week! Party today, work out tomorrow! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4903052 So my first week went ok I guess. I only exercised 2 days. But I did! :) I ate ok. but on the other hand I was pretty sick with a cold. And I was hurting from the exercise! <BR> <BR> I have been feeling kinda moody, emotionally. And this weekend was pretty crappy. My only brother who is like my best friend had to go in for emergency surgery. My husband and I went with him and his fiancee'. I was a bit emotional because he has had some health issues in the past few years, and both ... Tue, 29 May 2012 15:50:24 EST exercise plan http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4893178 <BR> They say it takes 5 weeks to make something into a routine <BR> But my new dvd I am trying says "lose weight in 6 weeks" <BR> <BR> I am not sure why it actually matters! But I am setting my mind on 6 weeks. <BR> At 6 weeks I will change my exercise routine. They say to do a work out 3- 5 days a week. Most work outs say 3 days a week. But I don't do much during the day. I don't work, or anything. So I don't get much exercise, or movement. So my plan is to do the more in... Tue, 22 May 2012 15:27:18 EST My painful history with food! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4891638 Ok here is the painful truth about my food pasts. It's a bit of a downer, and kinda depressing at first, but it has a happy ending! and will get better! <BR> <BR> <BR> My food history: <BR> Younger years: <BR> When I was a kid I had the usual cereal for breakfast, bologna sandwiches for lunch, and what ever my mom made for us for dinner. <BR> 10-12: <BR> My parents got divorced. <BR> My moms new husband (at first boy friend) was a good cook. But they were druggy's/ alcoholic... Mon, 21 May 2012 16:10:59 EST starting week 1! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4891495 <BR> Ok I am officially ready! <BR> got my bath room scales= check ( I got a new one now, but my old one was digital, and this one is manual. So I am not sure how accurate it is. So not sure if I lost weight or not since I started the 5 htp. But it will work for to see if I am losing.) <BR> got measuring tape= sorta check (something that will work for now) <BR> got a journal to write down daily exercise, food tracker etc= check <BR> got the dvd player hooked up= check <BR> made room i... Mon, 21 May 2012 14:33:28 EST plan! (starting Monday) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4887666 <BR> Start= May 21st Should be routine by the 25th. <BR> Short term Goal: <BR> to get down to 170-180 by July 27th (day before brothers wedding, 2 before my birthday) <BR> * I know it's kinda a long shot! So I will be happy if I get down to 185-190 but maintain (no fluctuation) but look in better shape. <BR> <BR> Long term goal: <BR> to get down to 155-160 for how ever long it takes, and maintain! <BR> * I know it sounds steep, but did it before! <BR> <BR> Exercise plan: ... Fri, 18 May 2012 18:08:27 EST do the math to start next week for sure! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4887636 <BR> I heard or read some where once that the best time to start an exercise or diet routine for a women is the week before her period. Something about the hormones making it easier to stick with it. <BR> <BR> I have also heard it takes about 5 weeks to establish a regular routine. <BR> <BR> Well I did start to get into a bit of a mind set the week before this month. Although I have only so far did one day of exercise this week! (because my periods are killer!) <BR> <BR> ... Fri, 18 May 2012 17:42:42 EST My body giving me warnings! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4884355 Back when I matched the weight I am at right now, my highest, I was a total mess! Pysically and menitally. I was being treated for anxiety/depression, and PMDD. Had a lot of UTI's, and IBS. I was sick almost allllll the time! <BR> <BR> I guess in some ways I have been waiting for one of those moments that really click in my head to make me see I really need to start taking better care of my self. <BR> <BR> I have those usual ones. Like both my parents died at young ages and I don... Wed, 16 May 2012 14:57:49 EST I think my husband is coming on board with the new changes! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4881071 <BR> <BR> I have mentioned before how we have had faced some hard times since my husbands pay checks have been garnished for about 3 years now. Since then this family has gotten lazy. The house and yard has suffered, along with our weight and health. We don't get out nearly as much nor host any bbq's, bon fires ect like we used to! And it has just made us fall further and further into a type of depression, and become more like hermits then ever before! <BR> <BR> I have started t... Mon, 14 May 2012 14:44:19 EST I am going to do this! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4875855 <img src="http://photos-ak.sparkpeople.com/nw/1/1/l117337494.jpg"> <BR> So I joined with site over a year ago. I haven't really used it much, it's a little over whelming for me. Since joining I have put on another 10-15 lbs. I am now matched to my highest weight ever! Way to close to 200lbs and that scares the hell out of me! I have always tried and watched my weight. I was always kinda border line over weight. I yo yo a lot. I have always heard things like "you hold your weight pret... Thu, 10 May 2012 16:52:43 EST
