What an AWFUL week!
Last week was absolutely awful. Seriously, it was the worst week I've had in a very, very long time. I felt really crappy on Monday, and I had to deal with nasty people and bratty kids all day at work. Then my stomach started acting up Monday af... Read more
A yucky, sucky Monday.
I'm working the summer day program at my school. I'm a floater for the summer, and I give breaks to all the teachers. Some of them are such buttheads about their dang breaks! It makes me so mad.
Also, when I woke up this morning, I felt re... Read more
Last week when I got on the scale, I hadn't lost anything. I was so bummed, but didn't let it derail me. I kept pushing and ate well and worked out for the following week. I just got on the scale a few minutes ago, and I'm down 6.8 pounds! YAY! ... Read more
Organizing and getting rid of excess.
I've spent all weekend reorganizing my kitchen. I have been feeling frustrated with my space lately, and I've wanted to make it cleaner and more organized and efficient. So I started with my kitchen. I knew I had to make room for that new Ninja ... Read more
Friday night and a drastic shift in emotions.
I was so stressed when I left work this afternoon that I swear I could've hit someone. I've dealt with a thousand smart-mouthed little brats all week long and this afternoon was just DRAGGING so slowly. I was just so incredibly stressed. I'm alw... Read more
FATNESS......and being soooo incredibly aware of it.
Within just the past few days, I've become so keenly, intensely, glaringly aware of how fat I really am.
I've known for a while now that none of my clothes fit. I've also known what the number on the scale says. But it's almost like I stil... Read more
Mixed emotions and wake-up calls.
So last week I started paying more attention to what I ate. I was eating much more fruits and veggies. Husband and I went out on double date with his sister and her husband on Thursday, and I had two slices of pizza, but the only toppings I aske... Read more
The freedom of letting go.
Several days ago, I realized that there were multiple things holding me back. I suppose the true realization was that everything holding me back was no longer a present issue in my life. For instance, past traumas, regrets, things I hadn't yet f... Read more
Did what I could do TODAY.
First of all, my SparkPeople commenters continue to amaze me with their unwavering support and positive encouragement. I would like to personally thank each one of you who have commented over the past couple of days. You guys make me feel like I... Read more
Focus on the journey, not the destination.
This morning, I actually got up and went to the gym. I can still hardly believe it. I ate pretty well today, too -- but could've done better. (I've been feeling guilty about eating two oatmeal raisin cookies at school today). But other than that... Read more
The only one who can beat me is me.
I've started a written weight loss journal. Today is "day one." I've set a couple of short-term weight loss goals, and a couple of personal goals. I've written down all of my measurements, weight, etc. I like having papers that I can just flip t... Read more
Little changes, nice changes.
I need some place to vent, so I use my journal. In my real life, I'm a very upbeat and happy person. In order to do that, I need to have some outlet to pour my frustrations into, so I don't end up taking it out on my loved ones, so I don't have ... Read more
I feel so invisible. Husband just doesn't really notice me. I feel like we get along "fine" -- but I feel like we're more like roommates who sleep in the same bed. The past little while, I've even been feeling awkward about sleeping in the same ... Read more
I basically have a sexless marriage.
I don't remember the last time Husband and I had sex. It's been quite a few months now. I don't remember the last time, because I didn't write it down on the calendar or anything. I know it had also bee... Read more
Ladies Night Out...and I still did well!
I've recently mentioned the co-workers/new friends I've been spending time with. Well, tonight we had another Ladies Night out. We went out to dinner, where we had a lot of laughs...and a cocktail. Then we did a little shopping, and we ended the... Read more
