Finally a day off and planning my week
Boy, it felt good to have a day off after an almost 70-hour work week. I've been working a lot of extra days to help out and because it means more money. Heck, if DH is working so hard, why not do the same? We have so many goals that require t... Read more
Small steps - 190.5
I think I've finally dropped the extra water weight from all of the binging. I was happy to see this number when I got on the scale. My focus right now is to get back under 190. I'll work on under 180 after that.
Today I drove to work ... Read more
Trip and updates - 192.4
Gosh, it's been a long time again. I have to thank the people who have recently reached out...it was an amazing reminder that there are people out there that actually want to see me succeed. I know my friends here have been thinking of me and ... Read more
Day 37 - less than 7 weeks to go
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
Day 26 - running out of time
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
Day 25 - sick
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
Day 24 - it's time for some scheduling
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
Day 14 - having trouble finding balance
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
Day 8 - a bit better
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
Day 4 - feeling really stuck
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
Day 1 - anything is possible
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
213 - it's that time of year...again.
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
204 - how do you relax?
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
200 - reality vs. imagination + making it count.
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.
199 - Boot Camp
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
