SUGAR IS MY ENEMY!

Wednesday, February 19, 2014      4 comments

Would I hang out with an enemy day after day? NO! So why do I continue to eat junk that I regret eating immediately afterwards, and what is it going to take for me to STOP??? Those are the million dollar questions. Read more

Getting back to basics

Sunday, January 19, 2014      0 comments

I've learned that I can't exercise away a bad diet, and sugar is a slippery slope. Unlike previous years, I am not going to vow never to eat sweets again, but I am getting back to the basics of tracking my food and exercise. It's too easy to e... Read more

Quitting the fight

Friday, February 15, 2013      5 comments

I've had enough! I'm throwing in the towel on trying to be a certain weight, and trying to eat perfectly. It makes me obsess about food and eventually binge. So what if I weigh 120 instead of my desired 115? So what if I have a little belly ... Read more

Challenge

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      1 comments

I have created a challenging for myself. For every day I do not eat candy I will put $3.00 in a jar. If on any day I eat candy, I must remove $3.00 from the jar. On December 23 I get to buy myself something for Christmas with the money in the... Read more

50 is getting closer

Thursday, October 04, 2012      5 comments

The days leading up to my 50th birthday are going too fast and my progress too slow. I feel fat, tired and unmotivated. It's getting dark before 7:00 which has brought my weekday biking to a hault--this saddens me. The time between October an... Read more

Improving

Friday, September 21, 2012      3 comments

I've done much better the last couple days with sugar cravings. One suggestion I read recently said it was better to eat a dessert in the middle or immediately following a meal so it doesn't spike my blood sugar level. I've been doing that as ... Read more

I just want to stop thinking about food

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      3 comments

I am mentally exhausted. I'm so tired of thinking about food, logging food, planning ahead, thinking about what I can and can't eat, packing my breakfast and lunch. I just want to be "normal" and eat when I'm hungry and not eat when I'm not. I... Read more

Good Times

Friday, September 14, 2012      2 comments

I hiked Interstate State Park with my daughter yesterday and we had a wonderful day. Besides a beautiful hike, we had a picnic lunch and good conversation. Today is another perfect weather day. I rode my bike for 25 miles this morning and the... Read more

Pity Party is Over

Wednesday, September 12, 2012      6 comments

Last night I was eating while feeling sorry for myself. Everything has been going wrong lately and I was getting very down about it, but last night I was surfing around some Sparkpages looking for motivation and found it. It hit me how stupid ... Read more

Out of sorts

Tuesday, September 11, 2012      1 comments

I feel out of sorts with my workout room torn apart. I have no place do my yoga, kickboxing or stepping unless I move furniture about until new flooring is put down. I know it's not a long-term solution, but right now I just want to throw down... Read more

Foiled Again

Saturday, September 08, 2012      4 comments

I went downstairs to workout and discovered the plumbing problem extended to my workout room. Apparently, the leak started before this morning, because the water in the utility room was obviously floating along the floor to the next room. The ... Read more

Not what I had planned

Saturday, September 08, 2012      1 comments

I seems like a black cloud has been following me. I was going to bike to the library today (30 miles round trip), but I woke up to the forecast of 30 mph winds so I got ready for a run instead. I laced up and went to my workout room to warm up... Read more

Excellent workout

Thursday, September 06, 2012      1 comments

I did one of my most difficult workout videos tonight--the Reebok Intense Intervals workout. It's been a while since I've done it, but it's been raining since I got home from work, so I took to the basement for an indoor workout. It felt good... Read more
