What comes down must go up.
I was fully prepared to write a scathing blog about how I've been gone from Sparkpeople for six months, how I've been absolutely terrible to my body, and how I've gained back the 25 pounds I lost with Sparkpeople before, plus some. And while all... Read more
It's been a rough couple of weeks in terms of this healthier lifestyle thing. I really just stopped holding myself accountable. I got bored with tracking and bored with scrutinizing everything I ate, so I just stopped. I let my moods make the de... Read more
I'm totally proud and excited to announce that I'm one of the team captains for the Spring challenge for the 20 Somethings group that I'm in! I really love having leadership roles of any kind, they get me all pumped and motivated. And it's just ... Read more
I'm still kicking! I promise!
Whew. That was a long and unexpected hiatus from the SP community, and I'm feeling the effects. Life just caught up to me like crazy over the past few weeks. We've been really busy at work, I've been shockingly tired for no great reason, and I'v... Read more
Why, oh why, does love have to be so hard on your body? We certainly don't call them hate handles. My boyfriend and I have been so spotty with our goals over the last few weeks. Example: "no more fast food, we're cooking our meals!" "Yeah!!! Let... Read more
Can't think of a clever title.
Well, today had some good things about it, but still not where I want to be. My eating was within range on almost everything I'm tracking (which is a MAJOR improvement for most of them - thank you, multivitamins). But after almost two weeks of h... Read more
This has just not been my week. I feel like I've been derailed from my goals, and I don't even have some major thing to have set it off. I've just felt tired recently, and that feeling of exhaustion has overrun my feelings for caring about my he... Read more
Nothing better than a day off.
Sleep in (8am). Puppy potties. Make breakfast (cheerios. boca links. banana). Spark. Watch news. See quake. See tsunami. Feel shock. Take nap. Make lunch (bean burrito. carrots. applesauce). Take shower. Feel motivated. Go for walk. Puppy pottie... Read more
Today sucked. My coworkers were cranky to begin with. Then they got mad at me because I went to grab coffee in the cafeteria and it got busy on the unit while I was gone. Then they had their childish little attitudes with me. Then I apologized. ... Read more
Today was overall just a really low-key and to myself kind of day. Just what I needed. I feel pretty much over the cold, and it's just lovely to have that weight off my shoulders. You're just so icky when you're sick, in every aspect.
The w... Read more
The cold is receding!!! YAYYYY!
I feel so, so much better today compared to yesterday and the two before it. Probably has to do with the bajillion hours I slept yesterday and last night, but I woke up feeling pretty fantastic. Still pretty stuffy, and my nose just won't stop r... Read more
If I had a million dollars...
I'd give half to the first person to cure my cold.
I feel awful. I went into work today, and within an hour I was miserable. All clogged up again and coughing like crazy, then the dizzy spells started up again. And let me tell you, I had a ... Read more
Your bed is less comfy once you spend too much time in it.
I ended up calling into work today. I spent pretty much another day in bed, feeling bored and lazy. I almost wish I was exaggerating this desire that I have to get up and get moving, since I can't actually do it, but no it's legit. I'm still mot... Read more
This little piggy cried "Waah, waah, wahhhh" all the way home.
The common cold is a saboteur of dreams. Day two into our 10,000 step contest at work, and I'm practically bed-ridden. I doubt I've even got 2000 steps in today, and that's just from showering and going up and down the stairs to grab meals and l... Read more
Marching into March
LITERALLY! I spent almost and hour marching around at work today, to the neverending amusement of the patients and coworkers. But I just had to let everyone know that I'm taking our Step to Healthy Living contest quite seriously. I plan to win.
