I love my new work schedule but it was hard to get to the gym yesterday and today - I couldn't do it. Bootcamp was apparently amazing and I missed out. Monday starts a new week of Bootcamp since none on the weekend, and I really need to stick ... Read more
Ugh, I need to take control!!! I am running out of time, just under 8 weeks until we go to Israel and I am not following the plan! I said I'd eat clean and not slip up, remind myself how great it'll feel to go there 20 pounds lighter. But the ... Read more
Work was crazy busy today! Sundays are always nuts, but today was especially so. It says something when you feel like you don't see any of the 5-6 other doctors all day. It means we are all busy, busy, busy! I didn't have to deal with too mu... Read more
Honestly, if I don't schedule the time, I won't do it (namely, clean or get on SP). So, it's time to develop a daily schedule.
Exercise is going great and I'm down a bit more this week. Adding more cardio appears to be helping.
Not... Read more
This whole journey is a lot about balance...how do you do it? Is there a formula for the balancing act to succeed?
I feel like if exercise is great, food isn't and I can't figure out how to burn a lot of calories and eat enough food to feel... Read more
Today, in particular, was a good day. I was on surgery all day and pretty much cut something from 8:30 am until 4 pm. I think I did about 15-20 spays, 5 neuters and 3 dentals. Busy, busy, busy! All of my patients did great and the surgeries ... Read more
I wrote it all out and then erased it. I can't put these sorts of thoughts out there. I need to stay positive.
At home today and tomorrow - planning on doing some cooking, laundry and cleaning.
All I can do for now is get on here a... Read more
I suppose I could look back at 2014 and think about all of the hopes I had for the year that didn't come to fruition, all of the goals I made and didn't stick to and generally the depression that I felt this last year. It has not been a good ye... Read more
Here we go, huh? It's that time of year.
I have one Spark Goal for this year: be involved and lose weight, focusing 100% of my Spark effort on fitness and health.
I have a lot going on in my life right now and I struggle with putti... Read more
Is there something wrong with me? Is it unreasonable to get home at 7 pm and feel like I have time enough to barely eat, shower and go to bed? Is the 3 hours before bed time really not enough to find some relaxation?
What do you do? Bath? ... Read more
Even though I'm proud of a lot: 1) on Paleo again 2) hitting the gym 3) focusing on fitness...I'm remembering that when I "imagine" that I'm make serious changes and doing great, "reality" hits.
Kinda bummed about it...our old instructor is gone. One minute she was there, the next...not. I'm actually pretty unhappy about how it went down - everyone else at the gym was just saying "She's tired", "She's out of town", until finally someo... Read more
So to start off this blog of Day 198, I went back to Day 1:

I was so optimistic about so much "newness" - my job, the gym, my plan to st... Read more
So I'm feeling great about the gym, but the food is still an issue. I know what works for me and what I enjoy, it is just a matter of getting over the fact that I have to give up so much. But I will have so much to gain:
1) more energy

I'm so happy to say that I finally seem to be getting a routine together for going to the gym. It is located about 28 miles from home, right near my work. My new routine (I'm proud to say it is a true routine now) is:
Mon/Wed/Fri - up at ... Read more
