It's 10:58 ... do you know where your calories are?
Mine are .. well I don't know. I had a few too many to keep track of today. Spaghetti is my downfall apparently. And I was so hungry and in a hurry from school that I didn't measure. Bad me.. Bad bad me. I'd smack my own hand, but .. eh.
I... Read more
A penny for your thoughts
This week was VICTORIOUS!! I feel accomplished. I feel proud. Even though I went over on my calories twice this week, I know where I went wrong. I know what I have to change. I know what I have to give up, and I'm honestly surprised that it was ... Read more
So, on a Tuesday...
I love that the Biggest Loser is back on. LOVE it. I think watching this show over the years has helped to shape the person I'm becoming. I also think that Bob's words tonight will reverberate in my head whenever I feel tempted. Tempted to quit.... Read more
I know this isn't the month this usually pops up, but I am so grateful that I have people in my life that care. Not just about me, but FOR me, and help me on this journey of mine. Even in the smallest of ways, they.. you.. are helping me. Encour... Read more
Again, here I am saying I'm back and ready to make the changes I need to make. If I follow my track records, then this should be the time! It took me several attempts to quit smoking, so I am going to again begin the road to a new, healthier me.... Read more
Well.. here I am again. Kicking myself in the pants a bit as well. I see everyone's successes, and I just shake my head because if I'd have dug in my heels too I'd be moving right along with my own success. Alas, it's my own fault. I let life sn... Read more
So.. between switching states, riding a greyhound and general screwing up my tentative grasp on emotional stability.. I've neglected sparkpeople. And in doing so, I've again, allowed myself to fall back into my "old habits" .. Ice cream twice in... Read more
.. was a lazy week. Had a road trip to GA with a friend of mine. I haven't been back east for a couple of years, and I haven't eaten at a Waffle House (yum!) for about four. I love waffle house. Eating once there .. I thought I could handle that... Read more
So I've totally slacked the last couple of days. Both in getting my tushie off of the couch, for the most part, and logging things in the journal, and on here. I'm not going to freak out about mentally going through a roll-a-dex of things I a... Read more
Today my "Jillian Jr" and I decided that we were going to start running. I've never in my whole life ever trained for running. It didn't take me long to remember why I don't like running.
We started off at a slow jog on a .16 of of a mile... Read more
Couple of days off..
Bad me. A couple days away from SP and I'm eating things I shouldn't eat in portions that shouldn't have made it to my plate. I have totally and 100% figured out that I'm an emotional eater. Or .. maybe I'm not and I'm just using it as a tool to... Read more
Because I can. .
Haha.. 500 fitness minutes in a month. I never thought I'd go from gold medal couch potato to moving and shaking it 500 minutes in a month.. And LIKE it. Haha. I love the energy boost I have. It's not alot.. but it is enough. There's more to c... Read more
Tomorrow is another day..
I'm pretty disappointed in myself this last week. Although, I've been getting to the gym quite a bit, and enjoying (yes, enjoying) some kick butt work outs, I'm eating waaaay too many calories in my day.
That's a little counterproductive, ... Read more
Haven't been to the gym in a few days. My friend was out of town and since she's who I rely on to get there, I didn't get to go. Ah well. Her 4 year old kept me a little busy though. And we wound up playing some Just Dance 2 and some Zumba, wel... Read more
Upon self reflection...
... I find things are changing for me already. For the first time in my life, I'm going to a gym and using the equipment, not just looking around and feeling uncomfortable. I still feel a little uncomfortable, considering I'm constantly in there... Read more
