WELL - I had a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad week. I ate like garbage. I barely got in any good workouts. I was so DOWN. I was afraid that was it. I was giving in, yet again, because I didn't do it *perfectly* like I always think I ... Read more
So......I've hit that WALL. The one that makes you or breaks you. It's kind of breaking me. My workouts were less than stellar this week. My eating hasn't been the greatest either. And I sort of don't care. Right now, I am pretty sure I'm ... Read more
Oh My Gosh! What do you do when no matter HOW much you eat - even if it's the 'right things', you can't seem to feel FULL?! I have had a couple of days like that recently - I could eat for hours straight, and I wouldn't ever feel full! It's a... Read more
Well, I hammered it out on the treadmill today. Didn't want to, but I did it. I did eat well today - I didn't have that desire to eat yucky food. I guess I needed that day or two to get over my desire to throw it all away.
Now I'm tryi... Read more
Oh my GOSH. I barely squeaked out 60 minutes on the bike tonight. By barely, I mean BARELY. I ended up taking my rest day yesterday because I had to work, so tonight I had to get my cardio in. Yeaaaaaaahhhhhhhh.....well, I can honestly say t... Read more
I don't think I have to outline ALL of my story, because I've shared it in a blog before, but to quickly recap: I have had anxiety and panic attacks since I was in 7th grade. They have affected me to varying degrees throughout my life, but have... Read more

All good things are difficult to achieve; and bad things are very easy to get.” Morarji Desai
HA! Wow! How totally true is that??? Think about ANYTHING in life - it is 100% truth!!!
For example: in eating...eating poorly is easy. P... Read more
I have been reading that rest days are actually a good thing. I didn't really think that was a necessity or possibility until two weeks ago I had inadvertently had to take a rest day due to a busy day. I actually saw vast improvement that week... Read more

"Fake it till you make it".
That was advice given to me many years ago. At the time I think I needed to tackle cleaning something, and didn't have an ounce of motivation. And that's what she told me.....fake it till I make it!
So -... Read more
â€œSooner or later, you start taking yourself seriously. You know when you need a break. You know when you need a rest. You know what to get worked up about and what to get rid of. And you know when it's time to take care of yourself, for yourse... Read more
So I have signed up for the Virtual 5K thing that SP has going on. (By the way SparkPeople - AWESOME idea!) I didn't have the confidence to think I could just run it, so I'm in the run/walk training program. So far, SO good! But, I'd rather ... Read more
Got in some good workouts the last few days. I usually do - I aim for SOME kind of movement daily - just so I don't lose it. I kind of view it like brushing your teeth, getting dressed, or eating lunch...something that I need to do every day. ... Read more
