Still Struggling

Tuesday, February 02, 2016      8 comments

So my goal was to lose 10 lbs. by March 14th, the start of Lent. I don't know that that's going to happen. I've lost two pounds in the past month (so 1/2 lb. per week), but I'm just below where i was on Christmas Day. It took me 6 weeks of regai... Read more

Trying to stay on track- and focused

Saturday, January 16, 2016      2 comments

So my current goal is to lose 10 more pounds by the start of Lent, which is March 14th. I think this is a realistic goal, if I could get my eating more in line. I have been cheating way too many days per week and overeating at night when I get c... Read more

Resolutions

Wednesday, January 06, 2016      2 comments

So I resolved last August to exercise more and eat better, so that was not one of my New Year's resolutions, as I am slowly getting better at doing that. I started two of my resolutions today, though. First, I walked for 35 minutes on the treadm... Read more

Christmas and Coming Back

Monday, December 28, 2015      1 comments

So I took 3 days off from Spark People, though I managed to login everyday and at least spin the wheel so as not to loose my Spark Streak. I needed those three days off. Family, friends, church, that's what's consumed me since last Wednesday, th... Read more

Fitting in Time

Friday, December 04, 2015      7 comments

So, I stink at time management. This has become even more apparent as I am jobless and have no set schedule for the day. I sleep too late most days, making getting anything done near impossible. I keep trying to get up at a reasonable hour ... Read more

Listening to Your Body

Thursday, November 19, 2015      5 comments

Boy, did I learn a big lesson today. So I'm bad about listening to my body. I exercise with stretched out muscles (bad), eat junk food when I have healthy food in the fridge (bad), and just generally don't pay attention. I have IBS, so I ne... Read more

Goals

Friday, October 30, 2015      4 comments

So my Spark Coach challenge is to come up with reasons why I want to lose weight. Here they are: 1. I don't want to be the first person in my family to become diabetic. 2. I want to keep my blood sugar, blood pressure, & cholesterol levels... Read more

Started off bad, ended up good

Tuesday, October 27, 2015      6 comments

So today started off bad. I've been trying to wake up earlier in the morning as I need to get used to getting up early for when I go back to work. I also am going on a trip this weekend and need to get up at 5 on Friday so I've been trying to ge... Read more

Complaining

Saturday, October 24, 2015      4 comments

So my challenge for today is not to complain, which is really hard because, let's face it, I'm a complainer. I've been on spark people (again) since August and I've lost 1 measly pound. That makes it really hard to keep on going. I'm exercising ... Read more

So I think I'm finally getting the hang of this

Thursday, October 22, 2015      1 comments

It's been about 2 months since I started back on Spark People, started exercising again, and started eating healthy. I have been on Spark People sporadically for the last 3 years. Man, has it been a rocky 2 months! I fell off the wagon over and ... Read more

So I fell off the wagon...

So I had pizza this week. And garlic cheese bread. And a giant salad covered with cheese. It was alllll the cheese! I was craving it so bad, I dreamed about it. I gave in. That was yesterday. Today I'm back on track. I walked 65 minutes on the t... Read more

I did it!

Monday, October 12, 2015      2 comments

So I slept awful last night. I tossed and turned the whole night because of the heat and woke up late. I couldn't go to the gym because I had some job applications to drive over and turn in to human resources offices. I was out the door quickly ... Read more

Down 2 Pounds!

Saturday, October 10, 2015      3 comments

So I'm down two pounds, which is fantastic. I have kept to my calorie levels and exercise goals for the week, so I'm really happy that it's paid off. I was hoping to lose about half a pound this week, but I'll take it! I now only have 10 lbs. to... Read more

Greek Fest

Monday, October 05, 2015      3 comments

My church's annual Greek Fest was this last weekend and I worked in the Gyro Booth Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. With all that tempting food around, I did not eat healthy, though I am committed to getting back on track this week. Exercise came i... Read more

Well...

Wednesday, September 30, 2015      2 comments

So my weight has been fluctuating all over the place. up 3 lbs. yesterday, down 4.5 lbs. today. I don't know what's going on with my body! I'm working on counting my calories even if I don't eat healthy, which should help. I do so good during th... Read more
