Refocusing and Recommitting
It is August 6th, already. Where has the time gone?!
June. Well, let's just say that everything kind of fell apart. My grandfather has Stage IV cancer and (against the advice of the doctor and our family) underwent chemotherapy and had... Read more
When the going gets tough...
So, at weigh in this morning, when the scale didn't budge and my weight has been the same for several weeks-- I was ready to cuss and throw in the towel. Then I remembered I also haven't done my measurements in a while.
So, in my 21 day pe... Read more
I had big plans to be down several pounds and inches by this month... but the best laid plans... right? Anyway, I am not going to beat myself up for this-- no need to eat my emotions or binge again because I'm not exactly where I had planned to... Read more
S T R E S S I N'
Ahhh. Where to begin.
Why am I stressing?!
1. Rental Property lease is up and we're looking for new tenants. It is a disaster of a process and I am OVER it already and we just did our first showing yesterday. Our current tenants ... Read more
Well. Well. Well.
(I don't know if I'm willing myself to be well or if I am surprised with this morning's weigh in or a combination of both)
I am horribly nauseous this morning. Like, yuck. We ordered japanese last night-- and I ... Read more
I can't begin to explain how wonderful I feel... I know how good clean eating (or mostly) clean eating is for me-- but here's the proof-- I can wake up earlier, my mood has improved by like 5,000% (is that a real measurement??! ... Read more
Well, apparently I had my weight tracked on here incorrectly-- so I found the error this morning and updated it-- meaning I've lost 12 pounds in total... but that means I have 105 total to lose. That 105 is a DAUNTING number, so I want to take i... Read more
I think I did a pretty good job of sticking with it this weekend. While I didn't do any formal exercising, I did get TONS of steps in. Yesterday-- I did over 9,000 (and that was just on my phone, so that doesn't include the walking without the... Read more
I am struggling with anxiety this week. I don't know that I have ever had an issue with it before. During my previous career, it was the culprit for my not being able to sleep-- but rightly so, given the huge amounts of pressure and stress fro... Read more
I Am A Mess.
I am a mess.
I mean, there isn't much more to say than, I am a mess.
I went from living a healthy lifestyle to this. To THIS!
I am so overweight, my body hurts. I used to jog and walk all the time. At least 10 miles a week. Most o... Read more
It Is Time!
So. No progress made, really.
Well, I've been better about food choices-- I eat breakfast in the morning (lately it's been an english muffin and a greek yogurt cup). I have been better about lunch, too. Dinner, well I am still struggling ... Read more
I just want "it" to click again. I feel like I know everything I need to be doing, but I somehow can't manage to get it to 'click'.
First, my husband did the grocery shopping yesterday because I am feeling like crap. (Looking back at 201... Read more
A New Year Filled with Possibilities
2015 was probably the most difficult year I've been through. So many 'ups and downs'. I am not prepared to share the 'downs' of the year, but the ups included celebrating the first year of our marriage, buying our 'forever' house and surviving... Read more
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
