Sitting in bed trying to wake up to work out - I don't want to but I HAVE to. If I don't then I'll be consumed kicking myself all day that I didn't follow through.
I will DO THIS!... Read more
Here we go, Tax Season.....
Well, my weight has fluxuated (sp?) up and down 7 lbs for the past month. I haven't been taking care of myself though. I finally began p90 today and am going to try to complete each morning, even if my step total on my fitbit doesn't reack 11K... Read more
So happy for new beginnings
Well, this has been an interesting year. A year ago I decided to take charge of my health and my career. I wanted to leave working in the city but my recruiter talked me into taking a certain position. I thought I found a job that had a good ... Read more
Quick check in until next week
Well I'll update in more detail later, but after a summer of getting motivated to walk 8 miles 3 days a week, begin my running program and realize I needed to find a new job because the atmosphere I was in was actually causing me pa... Read more
Well I hit my hightest weight about a week ago. Not sure if it was a "blip' day or what, but it really hit me. I went to the gym and I've done something healthy each day since.
Let's hope it sticks!... Read more
Oh, hi Spring, nice of you to finally make it!
Today, while sitting on my couch letting my coffee kick in (and checking in my SparkCoach) before going for a walk, I finally had the first, "can't wait to go outside" feelings in a long time. In Boston, the weather has been unbearably cold for... Read more
looking forward to seeing results
OK. I admit it. I get impatient when it comes to losing weight and I'm really focusing on correcting this. I gained ten pounds during tax season and I want them off now, so I can resume seeing the results I was getting BEFORE I allowed myself ... Read more
Busy season is winding down.....
I pre-ordered the Sparkpeole book, and in doing so received a 3 month subscription to Spark Coach, which I'm testing out. Depending on how I do I may stick with it.
The first step is visualization, which I'm having trouble with. I've AL... Read more
Oh, hello cold, didn't really want to see you again.....
...as I drink my Alka-Seltzer Plus....
Well, with my sinus making me EXTREMELY aware of it's existence, I can't smell anything. Good, since I have no desire for food. However, I have no desire to work out and actually work at my office (t... Read more
Wedding to go to in week and a half. Dress Tight. MOTIVATION
Well, the subject line kind of speaks for itself. I gained a lot of weight this winter and I have a wedding to go to a week from Saturday. It hit me yesterday that none of my dresses fit. *GAH*
One dress, my former "safety dress" is snug... Read more
Spring, you didn't tell me we were playing hide and seek!
Well, it's a good day. No, not because I gained a bit over the weekend per my scale although I was active. No, not because it's grey, windy and cold outside today. Why? because I woke up feeling rested although I didn't sleep much, had my warm... Read more
quick check in
well, had a pretty good weekend. Had to work yesterday (can't wait for tax season to end!) but got a good workout in after. While at the gym a couple friends walked in who were getting their car serviced so used my gym instead of the one locat... Read more
Gym yesterday.....but today?
Well, snow seems to love Boston this year!
I managed to escape the office yesterday to go to the gym, but we'll see if work is ok with it - I decided that since I don't take smoke breaks, lunch breaks, coffee runs, dinner breaks I could tak... Read more
OK - as I have begun the journey again
Well, my original goals of tax season went down the drain pretty quickly as the sleep decreased, snow increased and excuses multiplied proportionately to the food I took in. Add a flu and a never ending sinus infection and you got me, reversing... Read more
Well, back to the ol' drawing board....
I hate tax season.
I said it. I hate the winter weather/12-16 hour days, 6-7 days a week/ stress beyond belief/ avg 4 hours of sleep. I hate that I could keep my weight at bay for weeks and then in one week my weight spiked 9.5 pounds and... Read more
