Still here, still doing ok.

Friday, December 07, 2012      4 comments

Hi all! I've just had such a hard time getting time to be online. There should be no excuses but.... It seems like it should be easy to spend 30 mins a day on SP but it's a challenge. I'm a mom's taxi (as many of us are) to two busy yo... Read more

I "gained" 3 lbs without SP

Wednesday, November 07, 2012      1 comments

Hi all, It's been a tough 2 weeks with more stressors than I've had for a long while. I disappeared off SP only due to time issues. It's hard to believe I didn't have time to log on but I go to bed at 9pm almost everynight (I need alot of sl... Read more

In between sizes

Thursday, October 11, 2012      3 comments

Don't you hate it when you find a gorgeous pair of shoes and they only come in even sizes, and you need a half size? Or how about when you find a great blouse and it fits great except the sleeves are uncomfortable and would be perfect a h... Read more

I shall not forget.

I missed connecting with SP for 5 days this week. Although I am still down 1 lb I am NOT going to do this alone. I didn't feel guilty for having some wine this week (I rarely, rarely drink) or not meeting my calories to burn this week goal. I... Read more

Rumination

Wednesday, September 26, 2012      4 comments

I don't know if anyone else did / does this but up until I got motivated, I would barely finish a meal before thinking about what I would get to eat next. My eating never really focused on "junk food" because I love food soooo much. I can rumi... Read more

My tummy is not happy

Thursday, September 20, 2012      6 comments

I think it is possible to eat too much vegetables. 'nuf said'... Read more

I ache. Some good and some not so good.

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      4 comments

I've got some "good" sore from working out which feels GREAT. It makes me sad though that my knee hates me and will limit my activity. It's really weird that I don't even know I have a knee injury when I'm walking. It's when I do stairs. OMG... Read more

Positive Attitude Change

Saturday, September 15, 2012      3 comments

Wow, am I ever happier. It really is a combination of many factors. Firstly, I love September, back to routine (not that I don't enjoy summer) but I do better with structure. I love the kids getting back to school and their happy faces and st... Read more

Protein Bars

Saturday, September 08, 2012      3 comments

I'm am focusing on increasing my protein intake significantly. I absolutely cannot get all the protein I need. I know it makes me feel fuller, longer. On my own, I often get just 30 grams, sometimes less. I have made a 2 week routine of hav... Read more

Moving in the right direction

Tuesday, September 04, 2012      2 comments

I am getting more consistent with my caloric intake. It's still above what it should be (2200 cal vs. 1500) but that's an improvement. I am pleased with how the long weekend went, and the binging that stayed away. That's not to say I didn't i... Read more

Day 2

Sunday, August 12, 2012      2 comments

Day 1 was not a good day. It was my "hit rock bottom" day. I was so sad I put a disclaimer on yesterday's blog. But I'm very pleased to say, I am content with how I did today. I accept that small changes will be manageable, and attainable ... Read more

I'm back. Must stop trying to accept my size (I hate that idea).

Saturday, August 11, 2012      2 comments

Disclaimer - this is NOT a positive blog. I am writing this for myself and do not want it to bring others down. I'm quite down overall with my mood and up with my weight. I'm still not in control, haven't gotten the fact yet that food is... Read more

I'm getting it. I need to improve my health.

Wednesday, August 25, 2010      2 comments

Well, I have been procrastining. "I'll start tomorrow. I ate too much today so I might as well forget it." I am stopping the procrastinating and getting it going. I have been walking for 2 weeks everyday for at least 45 minutes. I have star... Read more

Is walking and the WII fit enough for a start?

Sunday, August 01, 2010      2 comments

I have walked this week. I have a german sheperd puppy and he can walk an excellent, and challenging pace for me. I am getting in about 60 minutes of walking him daily, started about 10 days ago. I am going to set up the WII tomorrow with WII... Read more

Today I did not binge

Friday, July 30, 2010      0 comments

And I am proud of myself. It's been a challenge to even get my head around making the committment. I had an easier time quitting smoking in March than I am controlling my binge eating, which is not related to quitting smoking. I've been binge... Read more
