One of the biggest challenges for me about weight loss, and many areas of my life frankly, has to do with the dailiness of life. It is the discipline of the day to day activities. I wake up and some days I just don't feel like doing all the th... Read more
I DID IT!... Read more
I suppose I have hit the wall. You know what I mean, that place where this weight loss journey has become an inconvenience to say the least. I want all the bread I can eat, I want sugar like a ton of it, and I still actually want to exercise, ... Read more
Preparing for Race Day.....
My first 5k is coming up this Friday. I am a bit baffled by my lack of motivation. I assumed that I would be all excited and really motivated. I have been tired and grouchy instead. I have done workouts the past two days. Yesterday's didn't... Read more
So today was my weekly weigh-in day. Finally I saw some progress. Figured out I had allowed my gut issues to get a bit out of control and so my weight loss slowed along with my gut! I have dealt with severe constipation for years now. I am just ... Read more
So, progress is continuing, but I wish and expected it would have moved more quickly. I will not quit, yet there are days when discouragement creeps in and those moments when my emotions attempt to dictate what goes in my mouth makes life more ... Read more
Over the past several years, I have dealt with several different health issues. It seems that once I get one thing managed something else pops up to pull at me in another direction. I have been working for almost 7 weeks now on my fitness goal... Read more
Getting off to a good start.
This past weekend I got a phone call from a voice I haven't heard in probably 18 years. Apparently it is time for my 20 year High School reunion. Meh. . . I do not want to deal with this situation. The thought of seeing people I haven't seen in... Read more
I have about 5 weeks till my 5K. It is an evening race. I think that will be a nice time to run. I just hope that I am ready. I can do the distance. I managed to complete the distance last week, but I haven't had a good workout this week. ... Read more
A summer day.....
An odd winter we are having here in the south. The weather has been like mid summer for the past week. I have enjoyed having the house open, but it sure does make my workout much sweatier. (Is that even a word?) Even so I am pleased that I have ... Read more
Feeling a little overwhelmed.....
Today is one of those days when it feels like everything I am trying to do is just too much. But I also realize that I don't really have a choice, but to keep pushing through. Homeschool, household chores, calories tracking, exercise, and tendin... Read more
Forbidden Birthday Cake
This past weekend my DD had a birthday party. I planned all sorts of yummy goodies. Most of said goodies were things I shouldn't be eating. In addition to my current diet I have learned that I can't eat gluten. So I had a choice, do I make a glu... Read more
I am really finding it difficult to get motivated to exercise. The stress levels here at home lately have been so high it makes doing just about anything difficult. At this point I am just focusing on staying on routine. Today has been good i... Read more
So yesterday finally got outside and walked with the kiddos. It was a beautiful day, blue skies, and warm sun. The breeze was cool, but it made for a great day out of the house. It felt good to get going again, and to really burn some calorie... Read more
So good morning Sparkpeople. I have been scattered between here and babyfit.com for the past three weeks, and not real productive on either sight. I have kept bouncing back and forth because I thought I was pregnant. There were so many sympto... Read more
