Weekend Blues
Sunday, January 29, 2012      2 comments

This week was a little tough on me. The weekends seem to be days for sitting around the house watching Netflix. This is now the second weekend I've done it. Coming off the cold, pmsing, and running out of fresh fruits and veggies are all coming ... Read more
That time of month...
Saturday, January 28, 2012      3 comments

No, I'm not talking about the PMS kind of time of month, it's the end of the month and I have to pay rent soon, so I don't have money for anything else. Unfortunately I started this program in the middle of the month without proper planning for ... Read more
Mini Muffins
Friday, January 27, 2012      3 comments

I was having a heck of a sweet tooth last night, so I decided to make some muffins. Then I remembered I got a mini-cupcake pan from my mother a few christmases ago and had never used it, so last night was the night to do it. I love that I have t... Read more
Feeling a little better
Thursday, January 26, 2012      2 comments

So yesterday I wasn't able to get much in. I tracked what I ate and going to look at the daily feedback from that day, it asked me if I was done for the day. I guess 300 calories for the day is not good for anyone, but when I slept all day and n... Read more
Eating while sick
Wednesday, January 25, 2012      3 comments

So today the full on symptoms of what my family had earlier this week hit me. I could hardly move to get the kids out to the bus this morning. Fortunately I have all the time I want to nap all day, but unfortunately it will be harder to eat toda... Read more
Just Pay Attention
Tuesday, January 24, 2012      2 comments

It's amazing what can happen when I pay attention. Instead of mindlessly eating, I've been mindfully eating for the last 2 weeks. I've been paying attention to everything I put in my mouth. I've been putting everything on a plate or in a bowl. I... Read more
2 weeks ago

2 weeks ago I'd be sitting at the computer all day long. 2 weeks ago I'd have to make sure my facebook virtual worlds hadn't fallen apart. 2 weeks ago I'd eat whatever was in the house. 2 weeks ago I wouldn't eat breakfast. 2 weeks ago 2... Read more

I may have a husband that tries not to sabotage my goals by bringing home lots of junk food, but it's not enough for me. He's so busy having a full time job and a sit down hobby that I end up having to go at weight loss by myself. He makes his o... Read more
It must be a fluke

I got on the scale this morning and it said I was 225. Then I realized I was naked and that wasn't how I had been weighing myself the whole time. I got my normal clothes on, apparently my clothes weigh 3 pounds because it said I was still down a... Read more
Darn ankle
Friday, January 20, 2012      1 comments

I was cleaning the bathroom today and bent all the way down to finish the floor. While I did that I felt the ankle go. That didn't stop me from finishing the vacuuming. That didn't stop me from working out. It did make me hobble around for a whi... Read more
Temptation thrust upon me
Thursday, January 19, 2012      2 comments

I went out shopping with my mother today and we ended up at Target. I was good at BK having only a Whopper Jr (no mayo) and a salad, no pop. I haven't been able to have a snack yet and I'm not sure if I want one so close to dinner time, so I hav... Read more
Fast Food
Wednesday, January 18, 2012      1 comments

Tomorrow I get to go out with my mother to let the kids play at one of the fast food resturants with a kids area. It's the first time I've gone since I started this website guide. My norm would be to get a value meal. I don't normally have pop a... Read more

I volunteer at my kids' school on wednesdays. That means that I don't get to eat on the same schedule I have for the rest of the week. Last week wasn't too big of a deal being the first week of this change, but I fear that I'll actually be hungr... Read more
Put it on a plate.
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      4 comments

As I'm learning what a portion size really looks like, I've been putting it all on a plate or bowl. With my breakfast and lunches I've been using my "dessert" sized plates. They're much smaller and harder to fill the wrong portion size onto. I'm... Read more
First Week Frustrations
Tuesday, January 17, 2012      5 comments

I've been doing the SparkPeople program for a week now. It's been helping me relearn what a serving size is. It reminds me that I need to move and not just sit in front of my computer monitor like I've been doing for the last several years. I'm ... Read more
