Ok self... I get it. You've been struggling to meet your goals for 2 weeks now. You planned to do a countdown to Christmas challenge for 24 days, and today is day 15 and you've only hit your goals here and there. And it's frustrating and you're ... Read more
Day um... 10?
Oops... haven't exactly been keeping up with my blog. I'm now on day 10 of what was supposed to be my countdown to christmas challenge. I've pretty much failed miserably on that. I hate that I hold myself back. I have been doing better with bein... Read more
Day 3 wasn't too terrible. I ate well throughout the day (this is made easier since I plan and bring food from home), drank enough water, and even tried a new healthy recipe for dinner (chicken with a sweet potato, corn, and kale bake). A small ... Read more
I will not get discouraged. I will not beat myself up. I will not give up.
Yesterday was day ONE of my self-imposed countdown to Christmas challenge. Eat healthy (i.e.: stay in my calorie range every day), drink 6+ cups of water, and do som... Read more
Wait... what happened to summer?
I can't believe not only is Thanksgiving over, but it's December! I'm still in shock that it's not summer anymore. I suppose I need to do some Christmas shopping and decorating... :)
So, I believe fate brought me to sparkpeople today. I adm... Read more
Blood, sweat, and tears... many, many tears
I'm feeling pretty down right now. In August I started the "couch to 5k" running program because I decided to sign up for a color run. I was obviously being held at gunpoint because I don't run. Ever. In fact, I despise cardio in general. But I... Read more
Turning the big 3-0...
I'm still trying to absorb the fact that I turned 30 on Monday. Huh... how did that happen? Last I checked I was 20-something. I guess that's just how life is sometimes. You just plug along and life drifts on by...
But anyway, I'm hoping t... Read more
Don't mean to complain.
In light of the tragedy in Newtown on Friday, I feel like everything I've ever complained about is petty and pathetic. My heart breaks for those children, teachers, and their families, and I can only hope that in time they will find some measure... Read more
I've been doing well with my workout plan. I worked out Mon - Fri last week, and again yesterday (Monday) to start this week off right. The problem? I'm starting to have back muscle spasms again. I dealt with these for months a while back when I... Read more
Making it happen
Day one of my challenge was almost undone. Sometimes the time thing really IS an excuse, but still, only if you let it...
I thought I'd save some time by stopping for a few groceries on my lunch break. I stashed the cold items in my fridge ... Read more
Ready, set, GO!
The official start to the Christmas countdown challenge is today! I'm thinking of it more as a countdown to new years eve, since that's exactly 4 weeks from today. I need to state my goals and how I'll get there. Hmm... My ultimate goal is to lo... Read more
Yesterday was a success, today will be too!
I just wanted to point out to myself that I stuck to my plan yesterday and it felt good! I took my dog for a walk and also did a 45 minute turbo jam workout. Phew! Even though I HATE cardio I'm finding the turbo jam is a little more fun. I've ha... Read more
I've often found myself sitting at my desk at work, wishing there was something I could do to burn calories. From 6:00am - 5:00pm I'm either sitting in my car going to/from work, or sitting at my desk at work, and as I'm sure everyone knows, sit... Read more
Well, that's no good.
I saw something on TV last night that said if you sit on your butt for 5-6 hours a day (desk job anyone?), that 30 minutes of activity won't offset being sedentary that long... so since I have a desk job where I sit over 9 hours a day, what does... Read more
One year older and starting over!
My birthday was on Saturday. I realized I had planned to be at least 1/2 way to my goal weight by now. And I am exactly where I was then. Hmm... apparently not doing much or doing nothing at all still doesn't work.
So here I am, just turne... Read more
