I am... Sun, 3 Jun 2012 17:08:01 EST Update on Dr. visit http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4893665 So, apologies for my frantic .4 lb. loss this morning. I was pretty upset, but I am hoping all it is was due to my period to be coming soon?? <BR> I went to the doctor today, and I was basically told that nothing is wrong and it is normal. HOWEVER, she prescribed me medicine for acne problems, but I can't start it until I start my period just to ensure I am not pregnant (and my period is ALWAYS late these days.. every month.. so I have to wait on it -- should be any day now). I also go in nex... Tue, 22 May 2012 21:42:28 EST .4 lb. loss http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4892453 5 workouts and some cleaned up eating later, and I lost .4 lbs in a week. That's IT! I am so annoyed, I am almost in tears. I have an appt. with my doctor in a few hours, so I guess I am going to bring that up. I feel like I can't lose weight, but I can gain with every little thing I eat. I guess I am afraid to go in and declare these problems then be told that it is all me and nothing is wrong with my body. THEN I will feel like the ultimate loser. <BR> <BR> Really, I worked out hard! And i... Tue, 22 May 2012 06:40:49 EST Preparing to move http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4890970 So, we are doing final preparations in order to be out of here on Saturday. It is crazy. We moved from my mom's house to this apartment. Now, my mom is leaving her house so we are moving back to her house to live. I have to say it's not as exciting as it was to move here. I keep remembering all these things, and it is just so bittersweet to be leaving! This is basically where Colin grew up, although he is only 3 and a half now. I wonder if he will remember living here one day a long time from... Mon, 21 May 2012 10:05:15 EST My New (well, first) Goal! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4886496 So, it really takes me a lot to STAY motivated. I can't look at health issues as a reason to change nor can I look at how much weight I have to lose as a reason. Sometimes, I just purposely remain ignorant to my health, obviously. I LOVE the high after a workout, though, especially at night for whatever reason (just got back actually). It is mostly nutrition for me. <BR> <BR> OK, anyway.. when I was looking at my clothes today preparing for work, I wanted to get out some clothes I haven't wo... Thu, 17 May 2012 22:56:21 EST Great workout!! (Minus the shin split) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4881645 Uh, holy cow. I started my workout with a walk on the treadmill.. got 3 minutes into it and started to hurt. Made in 7 minutes (after adjusting the speed to 3.0 mph and grade to 0) and could not do anymore! It was so painful. And I was mad!!! Patience is virtue, but I gave up running as exercise until it heals and now walking too? I am going to suck this up and just hope that it is not anything more than a shin split that needs healing. <BR> <BR> In the mean time, I did the elliptical, arc t... Mon, 14 May 2012 21:51:36 EST Thanks!! -- & more! =) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4880112 I want to thank everyone for the support on the last blog! I have talked to many now, and I am thankful to have your support and cheers! Same back to you!! <BR> <BR> So, I went out to run today!! OH, I miss running. I keep trying to get back into it, but it is hard. Then, about two weeks ago, I ran for the second time that week (just starting back again) and had bad leg pain.. Scott (boyfriend) told me it was probably shin splits and to stop for a while. VERY sad, but I got over it. I haven'... Mon, 14 May 2012 00:06:15 EST Support http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4875432 I cannot believe how badly I am struggling -- and beating myself up over it!! I am having some problems lately, and I am trying to get into see a doctor (which I have discovered is a longgggg process if you don't have good insurance or a regular doctor). In the mean time, I being swallowed in my own self-pity. <BR> A YEAR ago, I was standing at 194 lbs. I am at 228. A YEAR AGO. Another reason why I think I have a health problem. But even if not, I am struggling to get back to that weight. An... Thu, 10 May 2012 11:39:23 EST Successful Workouts? -- ADD ME to see this blog! PLEASE! =) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4869540 So, I am trying to find out some workouts that people are using to stay healthy and have been successful doing so far. Please keep in mind that weight differences may give different results. I am just trying to look into what everyone is doing! <BR> <BR> I am thinking about starting to walk more (looking at an hour a day), plus some form of strength training. Then half of the time either workout equipment, zumba (possibly), running (waiting until I'm in better shape... VERY sad but I just ca... Sun, 6 May 2012 22:12:43 EST I have been here for 4 days! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4852156 I feel like it has been a whole lot longer! haha... I kept thinking today was Thursday all day long -- what a bummer! <BR> This week has been NUTS! I am in school right now, but next semester is my last semester (I will be student teaching). The classes I am taking right now are called "block" classes because they have to be taken together right before student teaching. On top of my classes, I had 40 hours of field work to do in a classroom this semester plus all the work I had to do while I ... Wed, 25 Apr 2012 18:27:32 EST A little about me! (Feel free to add me as you see my blog!) http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=4845529 I am so very excited to be blogging and on SP again! Such a great support system. I have lost touch badly, but I am here once again with the hopes that I can stay on task this time! <BR> <BR> I mostly try to eat clean. That is my goal anyway. I have been doing it off and on the last 2 weeks to get back into it. I have some problems with my eating right now and all the junk food I do consume. Most people struggle to eat the right foods, but I struggle at not eating TOO much of the bad goods. ... Sat, 21 Apr 2012 15:15:28 EST
