Day 45: What am I worth?

Thursday, July 30, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday was my second therapy appointment. I'm really glad I started going. I almost cancelled, thinking I didn't need to go anymore because I started feeling better (yes, after one appointment. *insert eye-roll here*) But I know th... Read more

Monday, July 27, 2015      2 comments

Ok... I had this long post written up but it was all scattered so I decided to start again. Not that you needed to know any of that but well, now you do! ANNIVERSARY STAYCATION: On Friday 7/24, we celebrated 5 years of marriage! We spent ... Read more

Day 35: Today is the Day!

Monday, July 20, 2015      3 comments

Today is my first appointment with my therapist. I'm so nervous. If I think about it long enough I become so overwhelmed I'm on the verge of tears. That nervous. I googled my therapist. And that just made it worse. ... Read more

Day 31: Tired but chugging along

Thursday, July 16, 2015      1 comments

This past week has been a bit difficult for me. Not in anything particular, but I don't think I've completely pulled out of my "funk", whether that was just a bad mood or a depressive (is that a word?) episode - I don't know, I just know th... Read more

Day 23: I Made My Therapy Appointment

Wednesday, July 08, 2015      7 comments

Today I made an appointment to see a therapist. Lately I've been feeling very overwhelmed, stressed, and anxious. For the past week or so I haven't been able to fully breathe. I never really noticed my breathing until I notice that I'm hol... Read more

Day 9: Reflecting on a Gain

Wednesday, June 24, 2015      3 comments

Wait... what?! Yes, today during my "official" weigh in, I had a gain. (I call it "official" because it's only official to me. I weigh in every Wednesday morning and record my weight. I may jump on the scale during the week but those... Read more

Day 4: In Retrospect

Friday, June 19, 2015      4 comments

Yesterday I went for a walk to a local park/playground near our house. When I checked the map on my phone, I saw it would be a 2.6 mile walk, which isn't bad. I used to run about 2 miles 3x a week a few months ago (but stopped due to knee/... Read more

Day 2: Untitled

Wednesday, June 17, 2015      2 comments

Seems like it's the same song playing over and over in my life. Yet again, I find myself back at square one. This time with a 10lb gain. I'm repeating things to myself that I've said over and over before. I feel like I'm in a m... Read more

DOMS & Water Retention

Monday, January 26, 2015      1 comments

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Saturday I was able to return to Body Pump, my favorite fitness class ever. I kept my weights at what I thought was a "light" amount but ended up still having really sore muscles... Read more

Fueled by Results!

Friday, January 23, 2015      2 comments

Happy Friday!! This morning I hopped on the scale (yes, I weigh myself every day) and clocked in at 219.4 - down almost 3 pounds since Monday. I know that's not pure fat loss but it was a nice surprise since my official weigh in on Mon... Read more

Building Consistency

Thursday, January 22, 2015      3 comments

Starting over again is rough. This isn't my first round with SP. When I joined back in 2006 (yikes! almost 10 years ago!) I saw great results. The program was different then. I think it's similar to how SparkCoach is set up now, with you... Read more

Reflecting On Last Week

Tuesday, January 20, 2015      0 comments

Hi friends! Last week was a really fun week for me. Once a month at work, we have a themed dress up coffee break. Yes, we also have coffee breaks once a day, from 9:30am - 10am. Our cafe (I work at an art museum) sets out coffee and tea... Read more

Breaking Through Mental Barriers

Sunday, January 11, 2015      1 comments

Today I attended a teaching session by a wonderful Christian woman named Beth Barone. She's my pastor's mentor (he refers to her as his "spiritual mom") and comes to Hawaii once in a while to meet with and teach church leaders. I don't hold a ... Read more

Celebrating the Small Victories

Friday, January 09, 2015      1 comments

Yesterday was a rough day. All day I had a dull headache and was looking forward to eating dinner and enjoying some wine. When I got home, I realized I had the house to myself for a few minutes so I decided to lay down and take a short nap. ... Read more

Is it Friday, yet?

Thursday, January 08, 2015      2 comments

I feel like I'm getting back on track with my eating habits. It hasn't been easy these past 3 days. My cravings are strong. Today has been a bit tougher than earlier this week. I want to eat everything! Currently sitting on the bus an... Read more
