Another year gone, and I'm back again. Sigh. I'm tempted to delete my spark account and just start fresh. But, really, it's all part of the journey. So here I am. This morning I'll weigh myself for the first time in forever. Ugh. And I've been p... Read more
A huge turning point in my life came when I was a freshman in college. I was walking across campus, with my usually self-hating script running in my head, when I suddenly thought, "(several friends names from high school) love me. There HAS to b... Read more
I've been gone, for a long, long time. I regained all the weight I lost, plus a little more. I'm feeling crappy, out-of-shape, and without energy. Sigh. But I've always known I'd be back, that I wasn't leaving SP for good. Life has been crazy, ... Read more
Day 16 of 365
Why is junk food so darn appealing? Sigh.
School was canceled today due to no power, so another lazy day. Though I did get quite a bit done for my business, which is good.... Read more
Day 15 of 365: Head not in the game
I know it'll get there if I just keep this up, but it's not there yet.
Went to my Rescue Squad meeting tonight (I'm a Life Member). I really miss running calls. But I've let my EMT certification lapse, so I'd have to retake the entire class... Read more
Days 13 & 14 of 365
Ugh. Never posted a blog yesterday. I was going to do so after my party, but got home ridiculously late, so that didn't happen. So late, in fact, that today was a total waste.
But tomorrow I'll be getting back to the gym. If I can get the ... Read more
Day 12 of 365
Not doing great with all this. Need to get re-focused and back on track. But at least I'm still here.... Read more
Day 11 of 365: Crazy Day
Spent the morning at preschool with my 5 year old...wow, that's an exhausting job! Afternoon spent getting ready for my party this evening, then party this evening. I'm wiped!... Read more
Day 10 of 365: Lost Day
A lazy, lost day. Cuddle time with the kids, a little work on my business, not much else. My son was feeling better today, so by the afternoon, I decided he can go to school tomorrow. We made dinosaur sugar cookies for him to bring to school - ... Read more
Day 9 of 365: It never fails!
I'm on a roll! Went to the gym all 5 days last week. Went yesterday. Went today and had great workout. And now...my oldest is sick. Can't make it to the gym tomorrow - I can't (and wouldn't) bring a sick kid to childcare. Sigh...
I'll fi... Read more
Day 8 of 365: The Gym
I made it to the gym today which is a victory. My older son has preschool Tues. - Fri., so those days are easier. Drop him off, go to the gym. Mondays are harder. But I did it! Yay, me!... Read more
Day 7 of 365: Tracking
Okay, the food tracking is NOT going well. It's just such a pain, especially if I eat a meal at my parents' house or whatever. I need to just suck it up and deal with it - and be willing to estimate when necessary. Otherwise I'll never get back ... Read more
Day 6 of 365: Sleep
They say that not getting enough sleep leads to overeating. Yup. Got almost no sleep last night, and I've been eating like crazy this morning. Time to cut that out.
On the positive side, I finally got my Komen 3-Day page updated. Check it o... Read more
Day 5 of 365: I don't have to like it...
...I just have to do it. That's my motto for the gym. I'll be heading there after I drop my older son off at preschool. This will make five days in a row! I give myself weekends off from the gym, so I just have to get through today's workout. I... Read more
Day 4 of 365: a new goal
I've set a new goal for myself. I'm going to walk the D.C. Komen 3-Day next September. 60 miles in 3 days...yikes!! I'm also going to try to organize a Tastefully Simple team to walk with me... One of my fabulous team members, who I actually met... Read more
