Expectation Management

Wednesday, June 26, 2013      4 comments

Appearances can be deceiving, can't they? Or maybe, we just see what we want to see! Either way, reality comes a'calling! When I first signed up, I thought everybody was "The Biggest Loser". I thought everybody exercised multiple times a day. I ... Read more

Seven weeks along the road...

Today is Tuesday. Today SHOULD have been weigh-in day. It's not going to happen. And that's ok. Given the abyss I just climbed out of - thanks to all your help - I am going to be kind to myself & do some plan restructuring. The scale will ... Read more

The fire is out. No one but me can get it going again. What will tomorrow bring? Better question would be "What will I bring to tomorrow?" I have no answer tonight.... Read more

No Surprises Today!

Well, my weekly weigh-in went as well as could be expected.........maybe even slightly better. I didn't lose anything this week but I didn't gain anything either. So, the moral of this story is, if you want something badly enough, you have to do... Read more

Week of Wondering

Monday, June 17, 2013      4 comments

Tomorrow is Tuesday. Weigh-in Day. I am slightly apathetic over this. No doubt self-defense at work. This week was not a good week. I did not eat well. I did not drink my water. I did not exercise enough. My sleep was poor. C'est la vie! I... Read more

Life is funny. Today was Weigh-In Tuesday. I lost 3 pounds this week. This is a VERY good thing. And not necessarily deserved. I mean, I did exert effort this week - it's not like I did nothing. But I really was struggling yesterday knowing I di... Read more

Wasted day

Monday, June 10, 2013      1 comments

This will always be my hurdle - my mental game. I am so extremely regimented in my life, and yet one mood shift will jeopardize all my effort. I can go happily charging full steam ahead and then crash like hitting a brick wall. Full stop. It hur... Read more

Will this be the week?

Sunday, June 09, 2013      1 comments

I live for Tuesdays. I know. Pretty sad. But I really want to get into the 190's. High. Low. Doesn't matter. Just get me out of the 200's. Tuesday is weigh-day! Will it happen this week? Maybe not, but it is getting close. That is my huge goal f... Read more

Well, this is quite the ride. Up one day; down the next. I've lost my spark. Just going through the motions. I guess the important thing is I am still going. I 'll find that elusive spark somewhere along the road......gotta keep moving. Read more

I "took a long weekend". I was busy reading and posting a bit on the site, but I did not track & I did not exercise. I am having pain in my knees and I am not sure why. "Perfect Syndrome" won out and I tackled some projects that I had not foun... Read more

On Track

Thursday, May 30, 2013      5 comments

Today I am on track. I am even getting up before 7 a.m. these days to give myself more hours in my day. Sadly it is not helping me get through my list of backed up projects. And I am losing enthusiasm. Not motivation - just enthusiasm. I cannot ... Read more

Where has my life gone?

Somebody please tell me that at some point I will get my life back.........or at least "a life". I live & breathe SparkPeople Stuff. I am not getting my other stuff done. Ok. That's the whine. Moving on........ This afternoon I did my stren... Read more
