Feelings of being inadequate

Wednesday, July 22, 2009      3 comments

This is one of those musing type entries. I am trying to track down why I'm so hard on myself and feel like a failure when everyone else tells me I'm doing well. I'm 37 and have been with the same man for over half my life (we met at my si... Read more

Tomorrow is my 1 month on SP

Sunday, July 19, 2009      0 comments

I will update my weight and measurements then. I am afraid I didn't do as well as I'd hoped which is to drop to at least 140 lbs. (about 7 lbs.). I am not sure that I have but we'll see tomorrow. I spent an hour this afternoon playing DDR... Read more

Ugh....Took photos today

Saturday, July 18, 2009      3 comments

I am not happy with what I'm seeing. I know it more a vanity thing than anything else but 144 lbs on a 5'3" frame is not working for me. I will post pictures after I get down to 134 lbs and see if the difference is noticable. Read more

Not a great day

Wednesday, July 15, 2009      3 comments

I had a great workout this morning and work wasn't too bad. Pretty mellow day. However when hubby came to pick me up from work with kids in tow he informed me that he got laid off again. This is the second time from the same job Read more

Beautiful day

Sunday, July 12, 2009      2 comments

It is sunny and warm and I've been out in the yard getting rid of all the weeds that my poor old reel mower can't seem to chop through. I'm about half way through and it's already been 50 minutes of work, I am going to continue once my bread is... Read more

Feeling tired

Saturday, July 11, 2009      1 comments

I've gone to my doctor numerous times about this and he has done blood work and other tests to try and find a cause and the only thing we can come up with is sleep deprivation. I am having trouble sleeping and have been for about 6 months now. ... Read more

Warning about exercise/calorie intake

Friday, July 10, 2009      1 comments

Ok so each week (only been here for 3), I track my calories and exercise and keep coming up with calories spent are way higher than calories taken in you need to adjust. I just don't see that what I'm doing is that strenuous but I do find that ... Read more

Some days I hate my job

Thursday, July 09, 2009      1 comments

Oh my word. Today was a slow day but I really wish I could go back to just working one branch. The past 2 weeks I have been helping to cover at 2 other branches as well as trying to help my own branch. The reason for the help at the other bra... Read more

and happy to say we got out with nothing more than what was on the list. Enough meat and fresh veggies to make a lot of good meals and not one junk food item wound up in the cart Read more

Trying to fit in more exercise minutes

Tuesday, July 07, 2009      0 comments

I am enjoying my morning routine so much that I find that 30 minutes a day doesn't seem like enough but considering I am doing some sort of exercise 7 days a week I'm sure it is enough. I have found out however that my upper body is a lot w... Read more

Got a new matress

Sunday, July 05, 2009      1 comments

YES. Our matress came in and I slept on a real bed again last night. I can't believe how tired I was until I realized that I slept through my alarm this morning but it wasn't a huge deal considering I wasn't planning on doing any "real" workou... Read more
