binge... and... STOP!
So, today, it's a blustery 4 degrees. I got ready, had oatmeal with a banana in it with my cup of black coffee with a splash of organic half & half (the other half and half at the grocery store has all kinds of additives in it-- I expect milk &... Read more
2015. Two months in...
Well, I ended up with the flu, a stomach bug and a cold... It took just about 40 days to get over all of the junk, all while ignoring myself. Of course, it's really difficult to jog or run when you're wheezing and hacking up a lung, so I guess t... Read more
My lowest weight using spark people was 147 pounds. Even at that weight I didn't feel confident. I never posted physical pictures of myself because I was worried what people would think. These are just a few of my issues.

Wake Up Call
Woke up this morning... weighed myself. Thought I was going to cry. Most I've ever weighed in my life.
But instead of wallowing in my weight. I did something about it. I took all my measurements. I tracked them on here. I started a cleans... Read more
It's March 9th. And I've gained. I've ignored my body. I've been oblivious some days. I've been abusive other days. Cramming food into my mouth isn't going to solve any problem, it's only going to create more...
I'm pretty sad today. More d... Read more

Well first, Happy 2014... I know it's the 25th, where have I been?!
Let's see, I ended up with bronchitis on 12/23 and was sick for the longest time... nothing helped; it was terrible and I'm still coughing and feeling cruddy some days. Doc... Read more
An icky week in review... New Goal: Conquer Emotions
So, this week wasn't my finest. Got some fitness minutes in, but I didn't do so hot in the kitchen department. I would start out well and then lose momentum at dinner time. I've been trying to pick apart what happened this week.
First Week Back...
I started last Monday. The time change helped me out, I suppose. I was able to get up early and get a work out in. I was able to stick to waking up earlier all week. I told myself you can skip 1 day if you're sore or tired or overwhelmed, but yo... Read more
