Time to get back to work!
I do this a lot, it seems. I'll be on a roll. I'll be working out daily, watching what I eat and keeping track of my calorie intake, and then at some point, I just stop all together. I might run in place a few minutes off and on throughout the c... Read more
Yeah. I haven't been doing my exercises or watching too well what I eat for over a month now. I had been out of state helping my family out. My pap was in the hospital. Was supposed to just be a routine thing, go in, fix his pacemaker, then he g... Read more
pulled tooth = annoying
I had to get a tooth pulled today because the past couple days it would ping with massive pain. I mean a pain so bad that I thought I was going to throw up and my body got shaky. So, I'm at the dentist. (I'm extremely apprehensive about the dent... Read more
I'm sure eventually I will learn that it won't kill me to take a break from working out. However, I've gotten so used to doing it everyday, that I feel guilty every moment that I'm sitting still. I keep feeling like there's always something that... Read more
'did he leave his wife?'
My husband's friend came over the other day, and he brought his dad with him. He hadn't seen me in about a year and a half now. Last time he saw me, I was around 160 lbs. He saw me the other day, and before seeing my face, he asked his son if my... Read more
I had a lazy day yesterday. Didn't really do much of anything at all. Did a little bit, but not much and not enough. So I figured I'd try to work really hard today. Then I woke up with a headache, and it's since progressed into a full on migrain... Read more
Today has been hell so far. I'm so damn hungry, and it doesn't seem to want to go away when I eat. So I'm drinking water to see if that will ease the desire to just binge, but so far it's not working. If my younger son was up from his nap, we c... Read more
'It's because she has small kids'
Is it wrong that I get frustrated when somebody makes a comment about my weight loss and my mother-in-law quickly chimes in "Oh, it's because she's chasing her kids around. That's how she keeps it off." No. It's not. The reason I'm able to lose ... Read more
I've noticed (and this isn't anything new to me) that from the front, I'm rather wide. I have a big bone structure though. (This is true, not just saying I'm big boned) My hips are naturally wide. I'm not really complaining about it though. Havi... Read more
What's up with that?
So, I hop on the scale yesterday for my weekly weigh in. The Sunday before I was down to 117.4. Not as much as I would have liked, but still better than nothing. Well, when I got on yesterday, it said 118. It was mind boggling to me. I had gone ... Read more
More active on Spark
Lately I've been becoming a more active SparkPeople community member. I've been going to my sparkteams, participating in challenges and have found a couple people who's blogs I enjoy reading, so I've added them to my friends list. I've been post... Read more
can't do my cardio today
So, I'm sick. I thought that maybe by this evening, I'd feel better and maybe be able to do my cardio. Well, I ate dinner and now feel sick all over again. Granted, it's not as bad as it was last night. Last night I could barely move from being ... Read more
should've taken a picture
I was thinking yesterday, and I realized it would've been nice had I taken a picture of myself when I first joined SparkPeople. A full body pic so I could compare myself then to now. I know I've changed a lot, but it would be great to just see t... Read more
Moody days (rant)
I tend to get incredibly moody anymore. I've always been an irritable person, but I'd have some good days where it seemed as though nothing could/would upset me. The past couple days, it seems like everything sets me off and I'm heading for a br... Read more
Stepping away from the scale
I have a bad habit. This bad habit involves the dreaded scale. There it sits in my bathroom, silent as can be, yet it seems to be egging me on everytime I'm around it. I can't help it. I strip off my clothes, pull the damn thing out place it whe... Read more
