So so so so so sore...
Third full day of cleaning. Just when I thought I was really gaining strength, my body caught up with me. I feel sore, exhausted and just plain tired. But I really have worked hard, and with the new start of the diet and exercise, comes a nic... Read more
I'm a housecleaning machine!
For the last two days, I have worked my ample backside off cleaning my very messy house. It's been 3 weeks since the last time I cleaned, and at that time I could barely move, and had to have my DH help. Not this week! Though I did not formal... Read more
Wait...Wasn't I supposed to do housework?
Well, this was a prime example day of the spirit being willing, but oh my gosh was the flesh weak. I just said phooey on my housework (which I really DO need to do tomorrow) and off my DH and I went to do some shopping after a binge tv marathon... Read more
No Exercise, it's the Weekend! AND I LOST 4 POUNDS!
Whooooooooooooooooooo. Ok ok, I know it's probably water, but it was nice to see the scale going the opposite direction!
Today was mostly dedicated to working with new sugar-free recipes and finding a way to make sure I didn't stray as my ... Read more
Well, I got one more minute on the recumbent bike FINALLY. Six minutes in total. At least I'm moving forward. I'm thinking I will add two days next week of some easy yoga to see if I like it.
But I'm still suffering with insomnia. I hav... Read more
Success with Dinner...Yay!
FINALLY I had a dinner that was super good--we had a Shirataki Spaghetti Pie. I know some people have digestive issues with these type of noodles, but I'd rather have gas and a big plate of what tastes like spaghetti but without calories, carbs... Read more
Third Day Ouchies...
Day 3 and even though it's only 5 minutes on that recumbant bike, I HURT. I guess that means I'm at least trying to work hard. I don't understand why something so good for you has to hurt! Sheesh.
VERY depressed about my experiments in f... Read more
Thanks & 2nd Day--Out of Breath!
I can't tell you how much the posts mean to me. I'm very shy and introverted, so if I haven't posted to your blog, it's coming. I just have to get my nerve up...
But I DID exercise. It wasn't much--only 3 minutes--but it was on an ellipt... Read more
Ok, it only took me a year
This is stupid...but I'm SO HAPPY! I exercised on my recumbant bike for five WHOLE minutes...I did it just as required: started really slow and then worked up to a really tough stride for 2 minutes and then slowed down gently. I am still so o... Read more
Happy Halloween :D
So far, so good!!! I'm sticking with it and Saturday I will weigh again.
My mood is much much better now, partially because my inlaws are gone, partially because I'm taking Estroven with mood help, and partially because, well, I'm eating... Read more
Here we go again!
Ok...menu completed...groceries ordered. Now time for a healthy breakfast.
Still lots of stress, and unexpected bouts of grief over the loss of my dog--but I have to stop beating myself up over that. It's only been a month and it happened... Read more
You can't know how much strength I received from the support of those who commented on my rant yesterday.
Today I've taken it step by step as I prepare for the return of dreaded monsters-in-law, but somehow it doesn't seem so fearful. You... Read more
I'm going to confess something here. I simply cannot be around my inlaws for more than a few hours without feeling like I need an anti-depressant. So I turn to food. I keep trying, I really do--and I planned an entire week of meals based on t... Read more
Gained a pound...ack.
I wish I could say that I had this wonderful loss, but I didn't. I decided rather than get too upset by it that I would do some trolling through the forums and see what other sparkers have done with their frustratingly slow losses...it was supe... Read more
Day 14--Weigh In Tomorrow!
Such a busy week. It seems like it now takes me forever to get anything done. Arthritis and sciatica really hurt...but so far I'm forcing myself to make sure things get put away (we've done a HUGE remodel all on our own--too cheap for contract... Read more
