Healthy Shopping

Friday, June 28, 2013      7 comments

Today was so empowering, making much better choices and some outside of my comfort zone. I'm not usually a fish eater but lately I eat it most days. The protein is amazing without the carbs and fat. Today we opted not just for various types of f... Read more

Neat idea.

I saw this today and just had to share it on here. I really struggle to squeeze fruits into our eating habits at home, especially since it's not something DH is terribly fo... Read more

Health

Thursday, March 22, 2012      2 comments

So, I've always known health was something not to take for granted. It's something that is always niggling on some level because with a family history of cancers, diabetes, and heart issues I've always considered myself blessed that those things... Read more

Making time for me.

Sunday, November 13, 2011      1 comments

I was thinking recently about my inability to find time to do things I want to do. A prime example of this is reading books on health and wellness (both physical and emotional). I have so many books I want to read that I know will benefit me but... Read more

Overwhelmed

Tuesday, November 08, 2011      4 comments

So, after two years of steadily watching my health deteriorate and listening to my doctor tell me that I was just borderline with my blood sugars and nothing to worry about, I find myself in a very scary place. The old doctor vanished and ... Read more

Reeling...

Okay, so I always see the sparkpeople emails in my inbox and ever since Dusty sent me birthday wishes and said she hoped to see me back soon, I have been seriously thinking about getting back on track (Thanks Dusty!!!) I seem to have no pro... Read more

No more excuses..

Sunday, October 18, 2009      2 comments

Over the past couple of weeks, I have had the opportunity to really think about my life and what I am doing with it. I realized one thing, above all else, which is that I tend to use excuses a lot when it comes to my weight loss. I am sure... Read more

Confidence? Not me, surely!

Sunday, September 06, 2009      4 comments

So, today was a BIG step for me. Those of you who know me, know I am more than a little insecure about my body. I honestly think if I was more comfortable with my body, no matter what size, I would have an easier chance at keeping the weight off... Read more

New beginnings in more ways than one..

Friday, August 28, 2009      2 comments

So, we are all moved into the new house and sending silent prayers to the powers that be that we can lay our hat somewhere for more than 18 months this time. Not fully unpacked yet, but that will come. I got myself a new iphone and was thri... Read more

Back on track

Well, I am still waiting for the official posting message but the move is happening. I am determined that I am not going to get stressed out this time around, or at least I will minimize just how much stress I put myself through. I am going to m... Read more

Update

Thursday, April 23, 2009      2 comments

Firstly, I am going to make an apology for not being on SP at all. I have missed my friends and I just checked my page and saw all the love left there for me, it made me tear up. You guys are the best. You of course know I am a military wif... Read more

Sick :(

Sunday, February 15, 2009      2 comments

So, yesterday I ended up in the ER in the early hours. I was hurting really badly and they suspect that it is gall stones. I have to get an ultrasound done in the following week to confirm it. They gave me two shots and sent me home with a scrip... Read more
