when life comes knocking
You have to answer. Despite REALLY wanting to just pull the blinds, lock the doors, and pretend you're not home!
I'm not one to adapt to change very well. I like things to stay the same. For a long time my life was just that. And I was thri... Read more
I'm still here...
Just popping in to say hi to all my Spark friends. It may seem I've been MIA, but I'm still around.
Doing some serious struggling lately, not only with diet and exercise but just with life in general.
I really have nothing to compla... Read more
notes to self
10 minutes of exercise is completely doable. Quite your whining, pause the TV show you're watching, and just get up and do it.
It is not unreasonable to have a healthy snack in the evening, but you know that one snack leads to two, which le... Read more
random musings on a cold snowy morning
First off, let me get the most important part out of the way:
I APPRECIATE EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU! So many of you send me goodies, comment on my page, send me spark mail, etc, and I read everything and appreciate it all. I'm just not a social... Read more
So, can we just pretend November didn't happen?
Ok, maybe not the whole thing, but that last half?
Wow, so much for blogging every day, huh?
As much as I probably need to get back to a 30 day challenge this month, I'm not going t... Read more
days 11,12,13,14,15,16 (man do I suck at this daily blogging thing!)
Not a great second week, but there are successes in every week if you just look for them.
Overate several days, but was well within my range on several too.
Didn't make it to the gym at all, but still managed to add extra movement to several... Read more
Days 8, 9, and 10... playing catch up
Had a couple no-so-good days. I just can't handle having any kind of junk in the house. Today is going ok, and I think I've got it under control for now.
For the 30 days small changes challenge, day 8 was to drink only no calorie drinks for... Read more
Day 7, week 1
Day 7 was not a great day. Weekends are so hard, we always have company over to watch college football and DH always cooks for the game. I ate 3 large homemade cinnamon rolls yesterday along with a pile of home fried potatoes. ... Read more
Day 6, and a Friday too!
Day 6 is winding down, and I must say it was a pretty good day. Was able to go out to dinner and still stay in calorie range. Fat is a little high, but still in range. Went to my hip-hop dance class for the first time in several weeks. I'm proba... Read more
Day 5 and all is well
Another good day. Calories in range. Went to a 45 minute POUND class at the gym tonight, so I'm pretty beat. Ready to settle in with a little a TV watching and a sugar free hot cocoa.
Day 5 of the 30 day small changes challenge was to get u... Read more
day 4, can I get a woo hoo??!!
Day 4 was a rousing success. No snacking on candy at work. Walked at lunch. Ate only the amount of dinner I had logged. And when I started feeling like munching, I booted up a SP cardio video and busted out 10 minutes! Calories in range. ... Read more
day 3, mixed success
I went over my calories yesterday, I think. DH cooked dinner last night. Tuna casserole, one of his specialties. I put the recipe in my tracker years ago, but he's kind of a "a little of this, a dab of that" kind of cook and never makes it exact... Read more
Day 2.... just a few hours late
Last night I decided to go to bed rather than write my daily blog. I had been fighting with myself all evening, my stomach was growling, but my calories were in range and I had no intention of ruining that! So I just went to bed. ... Read more
30 days of thankful
Woke up this morning feeling a bit defeated. Here it is, a new month, and what do I have to show for the old one? I have been gaining and losing the same 2-3 lbs for months now. With the "eating" holidays quickly approaching, I definitely felt l... Read more
and so goes another week
Another week has come and gone. Time goes so fast it seems.
My new assistant started this week. She doing absolutely awesome and I am confident she will pick this up quickly. Quite a relief, because until she does I have to work 11 hours d... Read more
