90 Day Challenge/Pledge to MYSELF!!

Monday, March 07, 2011      7 comments

To hell with this wishy washy up and down ridiculous roller coaster I have been riding for the past 9 or 10 months!! Seriously, I am over it! So here's the deal: I am a classic case of all or nothing, and when I say "nothing", I mean "NOTHING... Read more

Here we go again!

How's this for an excuse? My father ran for sheriff of our county this summer (the final election was Nov. 30th). I tried and tried to keep up with my P90X and Insanity workouts, but the campaign really did pretty much consume us the entirity ... Read more

INSANITY

Tuesday, September 21, 2010      7 comments

I am still doing P90X, but I ordered another Beach Body video called Insanity. The reason being my older brother is doing Insanity (he's in great shape anyway) but he said it's alot more cardio than P90X and the longest video is 45 minutes. PL... Read more

fail, fail, and fail again!

Obviously, I am feeling like a total failure today! I was doing so well. Doesn't every miserable sad tale of failure begin that way? Ugh! First, i was so in the groove with my running and P90X. Overkill, maybe, but it was working. I have b... Read more

I AM SO FRUSTRATED!!!

Tuesday, September 07, 2010      14 comments

Ok, this may be lengthy and I apologize beforehand to anyone who may bother to read this. Prior to Spark, I was going to a fat doctor who weighed me, gave me a B12 shot and some prescription diet pills (phentermine). So, I find Spark, get my m... Read more

STILL FEELS WRONG

Thursday, September 02, 2010      2 comments

Don't get me wrong, I feel wonderful and love all of my new found lifestyle changes more than anything. However, there is still a part of me that can't quite grasp losing weight and feeling full all the time. I know that must sound ridiculous;... Read more

I feel like Poo!!!

I am soooooo mad at myself!!! I did so great with my tracking, healthy eating, and working out all weekend until YESTERDAY!!!! I decided to just do a small jog since I have been busting booty for 3 weeks straight. Then I thought, you know, I ... Read more

Wow! I feel so different!

Ok. I think I really started exercising daily about 23 days ago. My body is already so much firmer and toned looking. I really can't believe it. The scale hasn't caught up like I was hoping it would, but I am sure I have lost inches. It's a... Read more

I feel so much better

Monday, August 23, 2010      1 comments

Honestly, I never expected to feel this good in such a short amount of time! It's 100% the exercise! I was actually tracking my calorie intake for several weeks on Sparkpeople before I mustered up the courage to go walking. There was a time i... Read more

Divorce--lifelong consequences

Wednesday, August 18, 2010      6 comments

I got divorced from my 9 yr-old's father 7 years ago. I am now happily re-married and we even have a new baby; so why do I still feel so guilty about the divorce? Not because I want to be with my 1st husband (we really weren't compatible), but... Read more

One Step Back but Not Defeated!

Saturday, August 14, 2010      3 comments

Something about the weekends make me lose my mind (and my lifestyle change). I am so diligent about my eating during the week; but as soon as Friday night rolls around, I struggle. Suffice it to say, I am still feeling optimistic and somehow e... Read more

Starving!!

Friday, August 13, 2010      3 comments

I am unusually hungry today! Ironically, today is the 3rd day (in a row) in probably 10 years that I have had breakfast! It is going to take some getting used to, but I think I can get used to it. I am just curious why an hour or two after ea... Read more

I have missed way too much life!!

Wednesday, August 11, 2010      0 comments

I realized this morning that my weight has caused me to miss out on so many things. Oddly enough, I am not extremely heavy and never have been. But, like many of you, I have carried around the extra 15-20 lbs all of my adult life. I have lost... Read more

Size 14

Thursday, August 05, 2010      2 comments

I think I look best at a size 8, although it has been years since I was in an 8. I got pretty comfortable in 10's. Size 10's usually mean I weigh in the 150's. I stayed there after college for several years, had a baby, went right back to 8's... Read more
