I have put off doing today's session for over a week. It was the 22 minute jog. The summer is slipping through my fingers, and I would really like to complete the program before I go back to work in September. So, I put on my big girl panties, a... Read more
Gift of Good Health
Wow, I haven't written a blog in a really long time.
Well, I am going to try to do it a bit more often. Perhaps it will help me get back to goal. At least it will keep me busy and out of the kitchen for a few minutes.
I changed my ticke... Read more
No Middle Ground
So I'm sitting here reading the message boards. Many of the posts are about people struggling to stay on program. I know that place so very well. There are times that I eat and eat until I feel (and LOOK) like I'm about to give birth. Then I go ... Read more
Lately, I find myself struggling on my journey. It is getting too easy to blow off my workouts-both the independent ones and the ones with my personal trainer. I am also eating ridiculous amounts of food. Mostly junk food, but really anything & ... Read more
No, I'm not sick. I'm healthier than I've been in a long time!
I've been losing weight in dribs and drabs for the past two years. It is finally starting to show! I should be happy about this, right? So why do I feel so self-conscious? Oh, because people assume there must be something wrong with me. Not ever... Read more
Now, don't get me wrong, I LOVE the fact that I can fit into size 10 jeans again! I had pretty much given up hope in that department. I love the compliments that I get from friends, family, and coworkers. I love my trainer's new nickname for me~... Read more
Satisfied vs. Full
What does that even mean? I'm not satisfied UNLESS I'm full. My WW leader swears there's a difference. I smile and nod, wanting to believe him. Then I eat until there's no room left. And I'm satisfied.
If I could stop before my eyes roll ba... Read more
M&M's, You're NOT the Boss of ME!
I had a mini breakthrough!
At the WW meeting on Saturday, the leader talked about the difference be... Read more
Spreading the Spark!
I've always thought that the only way I could spread the Spark was to get my friends and family to sign up on SP. But I'm selfish. I do this for ME. I feel free to talk about things on here that come up in my life without fearing that so and so ... Read more
Down a Slippery Slope
It all began with a leak. Water was dripping, then running from the bathroom ceiling. Several phone calls later, the repairman was here. For six days! In and out from early in the morning until late at night. Our wall, ceiling, toilet, and sink ... Read more
From the Outside In
First, let me say that mood swings really suck. I was flying high this morning. Wanted to sing from the rooftops! As the day wore on, I just wanted to crawl into a shell and hide from the world. It's due, in part, to PMS. And then, of course, th... Read more
One step forward, two steps back.
First let me say that this is a whiny blog. I apologize in advance, and I am somewhat ashamed at myself for complaining over something so petty when the people in Haiti are facing such trauma.
That being said...
Last week, I lost 2.8 lbs.... Read more
On New Year's Day, I faced the music and logged my weight as 174.4 lbs. I went back to counting my WW points and logging everything that crossed my lips...no mater how "bad" it was. Of course, no foods are bad. It's all about portion control. I ... Read more
Not Giving Up
The other day, I was at the gym going through the motions. And then I stopped. I just walked away. I told my trainer that I was tired of exercising and not getting any results. After a 4-day pity party with absolutely no exercise, I went in for ... Read more
Going Back to My Youth
I used to love to jump rope...in my pre-teen years, that is. When my trainer got it in his head this week to make me do 30 seconds of jumping between each set of weights, I looked at him like he was crazy. I'm too old to jump. I ha... Read more
