not the start I was hoping for...
I can't believe how quickly this month has flown by. I haven't been moving at all and I'm feeling it. About two weeks ago my cousin's husband passed away at 45, no warning. He wasn't feeling well she went out with the kids came home and he was g... Read more
It's all mental
My inner voice is very loud, but I'm noticing lately that the tone is changing. When I started out on my C25K program (for the third time) my little voice would say "you can't do this" "this is too hard" " you're too heavy for this". On Monday ... Read more
Last week I received some unfortunate news, and I don't know what happened. I was completely devastated, and immediately started spinning out of control. I ate out of anger and frustration to a point where I could feel what it was doing to my ... Read more
Life is good!
I haven't lost any weight this year, but we've moved into our own house. We are getting settled, the kids are loving the new neighbourhood, finally in their school zone. Now back to school and routine, working to end the year strong. I see every... Read more
Promise to myself
This week has been really hectic and I was proud of myself for making some pretty good choices but I still have this mentality of rewarding myself with food. So after 4 challenging days, I ordered in. I'm not sure the food itself was the rewar... Read more
I'm trying really hard to make nutrition and activity a priority, but when I leave the kids home to go to aquafit and I'm not here to put them to bed I feel really guilty. My head tells me its the right thing to do, but it breaks my heart to com... Read more
A moment of weakness...
It seems the stars are against me today. Everything seemed to be a struggle from kids, to work to my husband. For a brief moment I thought "I should just give up". Then I started to angry, first with the situation and then with myself. People ... Read more
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
I am starting to fear my weight. I've been overweight since I was 10 years old, and now I see my 9 year old following my path and it scares me. I feel helpless to turn things around, the more I try to keep the kids after the more hectic our liv... Read more
been gone for awhile...
this year has not gone as I'd planned it, not even close but I'm still heading in the right direction so that works for me. I've been going to aquafit and continue to work on getting fit and eating healthy, the weight will take care of itself.... 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
I've been gone for a month
the fact that I've only gained 10 lbs is a miracle. Life has been hectic and I haven't been making the best choices but I'm back on track for good things this year.... 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
