That was terrible...
It has been a long time since I've logged my nutrition, and for the first time I was actually afraid to do it. I guess its harder now that I know better. It never occurred to me that I was that far off track. I ate double my calories and stil... Read more

not counting myself out just yet
I haven't been doing great but I haven't been gaining. I can feel myself losing control now, and its time for me to fight. I think I'm going through some sort of depression, I know the doctor would prescribe something but I've also seen what tho... Read more

Pity Party Over
Okay so life has thrown up on me, but I'm giving it back. Time for me to get back on track. Life is going to happen and I'm going to have to be a big girl and deal with it. Life is completely turned upside down and to top it off I can't find my... Read more
I was doing so well and I had my head back in the game, and then it ALL happened, you name it it happened. My husband went back to school, my cousin decided to sell the house we're living in and part of that was to stage the house so basically ... Read more
Proud of myself
Although I've been doing very well at the couch to 5K program I'm doing, a lot of the motivation came from my husband. He would run, then I would run. Today he didn't want to run but I had decided yesterday to enjoy Thanksgiving and some treats... Read more
Glad I'm not on a diet!
So I went into Thanksgiving knowing that I was going to enjoy my favourite things. I was prepared to go over my calorie range today, and decided it was okay. Not only did I have the usual goodness, and a lot of the things I love are the vegetabl... Read more
My 1st 5K.
I was very happy to be part of the run for a cure on Sunday even though, I didn't met my fundraising goal, or run as much of it as I would have liked. In fact I felt somewhat like it was a personal failure. However that train of thought didn't... Read more
Am I crazy...
tomorrow is my first 5K. I'd like to run the whole thing, but I'm not sure how that will play out.
I think I may be able to and that scares me, is that crazy? If I can accept success, because the fact that I'm running at all really is a ... Read more
I had to shake my head.,
So today I did W7D1 of the couch to 5K app on my husband's phone. I was running while my daughter was at gymnastics so I tend to worry about her while I'm gone. I thought I was getting pretty far away and so I was checking the app to see if I wa... Read more
4th Quarter Goal
I feel like I've been playing it safe so that I won't be disappointed. But I'm rethinking my strategy, so my goal for the next 3 months is to lose 40lbs. This will leave me with only 100lbs to go, but more importantly gets me back into my close... Read more
I'll try again tomorrow
Today I decided to take a sick day and take care of myself, but I didn't do a very good job. My food choices were horrible and considering I've spent most of the day on the couch it just feels that much worse. I wasn't even going to log my nut... Read more
