Organized Life

Wednesday, October 28, 2015      5 comments

An ultimate goal of mine is to be as organized at home as I am at work. This can be a hard thing. I saw a meme once that describes my struggle perfectly. It said: "Cleaning with kids is like brushing your teeth while eating Oreos." With a 6yr ol... Read more

Maintain is better than gain...

Tuesday, October 27, 2015      5 comments

So like it or not, I seem to be just maintaining what I've lost thus far. Looking back over the past month, I've gained and lost and gained and lost the same pound. My weight really has not changed much over the past month. While maintaining is ... Read more

Bummed out...

Wednesday, October 21, 2015      7 comments

My fitbit is dead. I'm so sad. I got it when it very first came out 2 1/2 years ago, so it's out of warranty now..... I've loved having the motivation to track my steps and now... I'm so bummed!! I charged it overnight and it had a full battery ... Read more

Choosing Your Attitude

Thursday, October 15, 2015      8 comments

I've struggled. This journey has not been perfect. Life is simply not perfect. I've had bad days. Personal problems, we've all got them. But am I going to allow my problems to side track me on this journey? Am I going to let one thing that's not... Read more

Gained 1.3 lbs

Tuesday, October 13, 2015      11 comments

I had a rough week. Which turned into me drinking things I shouldn't drink and eating things that I shouldn't eat. Sitting around, instead of working out. It was a bad week. I allowed myself to slip way to much. I could make a ton of excuses abo... Read more

Feeling Better

Thursday, October 08, 2015      5 comments

I'm feeling so much better today than I did yesterday. I actually started to feel better last night. Had a salad with salmon and a whole wheat noodle pasta with peppers on the side for dinner. Then took the kids (and hubby actually joined us), t... Read more

Food Poisoning

Wednesday, October 07, 2015      5 comments

So yesterday wasn't my best day. I ate too little, because I was feeling sick. I was running back and forth to the bathroom while at work too. I definitely lost that 1/2 pound I gained. I talked to my husband and we both had the same thing, whic... Read more

So I seem to struggle with blogging everyday. I really wish it was simpler on the mobile site. I always have my phone with me and I'm able to comment on others blogs and see my friends activity feed. I just wish I could figure out the mobile blo... Read more

Emotional Eating

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      10 comments

I've always been an emotional eater. I know this about myself. On particularly bad work days, I can be found scarfing down pieces of chocolate as though it's going to make the problem go away. It's not at all logical. It adds more stress to me i... Read more


Tuesday, September 29, 2015      8 comments

So I made my focus water yesterday and managed to drink (or drown in) 83oz. Which sounds like a lot, but is what I should be drinking at minimum each day for my kidneys to function the way they are supposed to. I almost felt like calling my urol... Read more

I haven't really been on my A game this past week. So, needless to say I was surprised to see the scale move when I weighed in this morning. Considering that I had a zero loss on the scale last week, I'm glad that it actually moved 3.2lbs down t... Read more

Self Sabotage?

Monday, September 21, 2015      10 comments

So, I had a plan yesterday. I was going to try to make up for my book club night... a night of fun with friends that involved food that is not at all good for me and several glasses of wine. So, I had planned to make up for my night. I wanted to... Read more

Blogging on mobile

Saturday, September 19, 2015      4 comments

I've been trying to blog all week. I'm not sure why sometimes it allows me to post on my phone and other times I end up in a view mode that won't let me post. It's kinda frustrating. I don't always have time to sit at the old laptop and wait the... Read more

12.6 lbs gone so far!

Monday, September 14, 2015      10 comments

It's been a little over a month since I've been back on spark. I've stuck with my tracking, I've been focusing on what I've been eating and making an effort to be active each day. It's a simple thing, but it works. Be accountable for what you ea... Read more

Dark Place

Sunday, September 13, 2015      9 comments

I am down today and need to snap out of it. I hate when I feel this way. I used to take medication to keep my anxiety in check. I stopped taking it a few months back. For the most part, I've done well without it. I have only had a couple of nigh... Read more
