Things People Say
Why do people think it is their place to make comments on other people's weight? Seriously, people have no filter.
I've been told too many times within the past month, month and a half, things like "are you feeling ok? You've really bee... Read more
Great Combination and a Solution
So, I was sitting here thinking I have to eat something light for dinner because I kind of went heavy on the calories earlier today. Solution: an egg, two egg whites and three tablespoons of salsa. All for less than 150 calories and only 5 grams... Read more
My Downfall is in the House
Ok, confession time. I read so often about people who struggle with having certain snacks (ie chips, chocolate, etc) in their house. For many, it's better to just not have it at all than to keep staring at a package and having it torture you. I... Read more
A *small* Rant
So, there are these family members that we see fairly often in a week. We get together for dinner, or they come to our house. Sometimes we visit just because. You get the idea.
I get so very bothered when comments are made about what I cho... Read more
Back on Track
So, after this weekend I feel like I've got my head back in the game. From a previous blog or two I talked about struggles I've been having. I think I'm finally past that. Took about a whole month to get out of this somewhat-of-a-plateau. Not tr... Read more
Healthy Recipe #1
I saw on SparkPeople yesterday this Healthy Eating challenge, and I thought it would be a good place to start as far as having better meal options for myself. I tried a recipe, if you can call it that. It's not really a recipe, just combining a ... Read more
Feeling frustrated. My 'official' weekly weigh-in tomorrow morning. I have a feeling I'm not going to like what I see. I feel like I'm losing control of what goes in my mouth. I fully understand that its only up to me what I eat, but it's as... Read more
How People See Me
Who am I?
So, we all probably, very often, think about who we are, and who other people see us as. In my mind I'm overweight.
This is something I'm working through. Since being on Spark and putting in a LOT of effort, I'm down 40 poun... Read more
Tomorrow is the start of our small group bible study, I'm really looking forward to it. I think we've got a good group, mix of younger people and more senior couples. It should be good.
Saturday we have a wedding to go to. I'm looking forwa... Read more
Friends, Canning and Evening Shredding
Today was great! Both from a fitness standpoint but also from just a 'life-in-general' standpoint. It was super busy, which is why I didn't get the Shred in till 8:30pm, but the important thing is that I did it. Day 6 done!
Began the day wi... Read more
Goals for September
I've 'mostly' gotten over the discouragement since my last blog, and I've decided I should write down my fitness goals I aim to achieve this month. So here goes:
1) nearly complete the Shred. This will likely take me into October, but I sho... Read more
Not Starting Out Good...
So I weighed myself this morning, as I do every Sunday morning.
I'm up 3 pounds.
This was hard/discouraging to see. I've been working my tail off. Did Jillian workouts 4x this week, ran twice, plus the little cardio workouts probably 4... Read more
Shred Day 2
I set my alarm again this morning to do the Shred before the kids woke up...BUT...I was achy from doing the first day, and my husband was home (he works midnights and usually isn't home when I wake up) so it was nice to just sleep in. Um, I say ... Read more
Starting the 'Shred'
So far, today has been a great day. I set my alarm for 5am...was out of bed by 5:15 (hit snooze once lol). I started Jillian Michaels 30 Day Shred today. Felt good to start something new and actually feel my muscles aching a little, the good kin... Read more
I went on a shopping spree today. I now have two pairs of pants, a pair of jeans, a skirt and I forget how many tops I now have to wear. The best part...this cost me NOTHING. No, nobody paid for it for me. I found it all in my closet! Buried. Pu... Read more
