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

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

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

Exercise equals a big appetite

Thursday, September 10, 2015      4 comments

So, for breakfast I had some of my home made pumpkin spice cold brew and some special k cereal with almond milk. Then I took the kids to the park, where I walked for 55 minutes while they played. I would have walked longer, but my shoe was reall... Read more

I'm by no means going to allow being a little sick be an excuse. Yesterday I had a plan to get the remainder of my steps in, I didn't quiet accomplish that goal. I ended at 5.7k steps, versus my target of 10k. I'm planning to see that 10k today.... Read more

I'm frustrated. Mainly with myself. But yeah, what can you do? So it's pumpkin season. My favorite season of all time. I broke my rule of no Starbucks, not once, not twice... but FOUR times. I had FOUR pumpkin spice latte's last week. Only one o... Read more

Dread and Bread...

Sunday, August 30, 2015      4 comments

I've seriously been dreading work. For the most part, I do like my job. I've been working for the same company for 15 years. But lately, the pressure and stress has been getting the best of me. I've been off my anxiety med's for a few months now... Read more

Stress is no good for a person with anxiety

Thursday, August 27, 2015      2 comments

So Tuesday and Wednesday were down right awful. It was crazy crazy crazy at work. I managed to eat good and still count my calories and drink my water. But I didn't get remotely close to my step goal on either day and didn't workout. It's not of... Read more

Bye Bye Lbs!

Monday, August 24, 2015      4 comments

So I was excited to see the scale down another 4lbs. Made me feel better about my book club night. It was a long stressful workday, I was so tempted to crawl in bed and stay there all night- but I went to the gym instead. I know things won't cha... Read more
