Eating out
Tuesday, October 07, 2014      2 comments

Ok, I'm trying to go low carb. What kind of choices should I make when we go to fast food places? I don't really care for the salads at fast food eateries. My mom is also doing low carb, she usually will order a grilled chicken sandwich (ex. Wen... Read more
Doing...not trying

I had my first night at the gym. I did multiple exercises on different machines. I worked out for 45 minutes and I feel great! It's a start, but I'm proud of myself for doing it! I have a schedule put together so that I make sure I get in workou... Read more

I'm more frustrated than ever. I feel as if I'm not living. I was supposed to lose 20-25 pounds by October and I've barely lost a few pounds. I was supposed to be losing this weight for the last few months. I'm eating horribly! I've been snackin... Read more

I am in a bit of a dilemma. My son wants me to come out to play basketball, throw the baseball with him, and ride bikes. I love doing those things, but here's the problem...I am constantly tired! As soon as I start to play or ride bikes with him... Read more

I've been killing myself for 2 weeks! Exercising, eating small portions, drinking my water...and NO CHANGES! I did lose 4 pounds, but I was hoping for at least 10! I know not to give up, but I'm terrified that I will not get out of the 200s. I'm... Read more

Ok, big question...How do I get rid of cravings? Cravings of chocolate or other sweets...I have been doing well at avoiding all junk food, but I still get a craving, especially for hot fudge sundaes! I try to keep myself busy, just trying to kee... Read more

I went ALL day today without ONE piece of junk food! I kept my calorie intake within the 1200-1500 calorie limit! I worked out on the treadmill for 13 minutes (that's all I could handle after not being active for so long) and burned 100 calories... Read more
Feeling like a failure....

There's no easy way to say this so I should just say it....I'm failing. I can't find any motivation or encouragement. I tried to do a 2 day cleanse and I failed at that (I only lasted 8 hours). I have only exercised once in almost a month. My ea... Read more

In the past week I signed up for Atkins. They have Peanut Butter Meal bars that are really good! I bought 2 weeks worth of bars to have for my breakfast and/or lunches. For dinner I have to eat a lean meat and vegetables. I also purchased a "lun... Read more

I literally am the worlds worst dieter. I can't seem to stick with anything that I feel will do me good this time. When I get excited about trying to change my lifestyle, within a week the excitement fades. I made sure that I don't have any junk... Read more
1 year!!
Monday, April 22, 2013      3 comments

One year ago today I quit smoking! I gained a lot of weight from it, but that's what happens. I accepted the gain (I wasn't happy about it), and now I'm doing something about it! I haven't decided how I want to celebrate my one year, but I'll... Read more

I'm a pipe fitter by trade. I work long hours and it's hard for me to exercise and eat on a normal schedule. For the last week I gave up drinking Diet Coke (I've been drinking water only). Today I was chosen to work outside (I live in northea... Read more

Tomorrow I begin working 12 hr shifts 6-7 days a week. This will not be an easy task for me as far as my eating and exercise is concerned. I will make sure that I pack a healthy lunch for work, but what do I do as far as dinner? I'll end up e... Read more
