Gained 20 Pounds!
Eek! I never wanted to get over 350 again, and I really got myself over it. :( I have been exercising barely at all. I really, really need to get myself back on track. I'm going to try to get myself motivated through SparkPeople this year as... Read more
My SparkPeople Two Year Anniversary
Well, I really slacked off last year. I'm now 10 pounds lighter than when I last signed in in December, but I really want to get on track to lose more weight. I haven't been under 300 pounds since high school, so I'd love to get myself under t... Read more
Gained 10 pounds over Thanksgiving
It happens every year to me, I gain 10 pounds during the holidays. I'm going to make a diligent effort for the rest of December to make sure that I lose the weight that I gained rather than gain more. If I'm not careful, I'll gain another 5 or... Read more
One Year SparkPeople Anniversary
As of July 7th, I have been with SparkPeople for one year. I'm still doing well with my weight loss and healthy lifestyle even though I'm not using the trackers or messageboards as much as I did when I started.
I have now lost over 60 poun... Read more
Getting back in the habit
I lost track of my healthy lifestyle for a little bit over the holidays, but I'm getting myself back on track. I'm motivated to get this weight off. I'm going to go to the beach with my mom and her friend in June, and I want to look and feel g... Read more
Today I feel a lot better than I did yesterday. I got back into things today, but I decided to get back into it a little slow since I am still a little sore from sickness. I did 30 minutes of exercise today, got my calorie intake, water intake... Read more
I was sick today. Today was the first day this month that I didn't get any exercise in, but I was feeling really sick for most of the day. Even now my eyes are still burning, but at least I'm not nauseous any more.
I did manage to get my ... Read more
Just a quick blog tonight as I'm sleepy
Today I got all of my nutrition and exercise done earlier than usual. I did my 50 minutes on my gazelle, got 2 servings of fruits and vegetables, and 8 glasses of water, all before 9PM. I'm glad I got it done early today, as I'm quite tired no... Read more
Back to walking
Today I managed to get my exercise in. Instead of going 50 minutes on the gazelle again, I did something different to mix things up a bit. I walked in my old neighborhood for 50 minutes. I got my water and stayed within my calorie range. I h... Read more
Veggies and exercise
I got my exercise done earlier than usual today. I got my 50 minutes on the gazelle again. Thank goodness we have that machine, I don't know if I would get my exercise in without it. I had my eight servings of water again today, and I had one... Read more
I had to struggle to get my 50 minutes on the Gazelle in, but I did manage to do it. I got my eight cups of water today, but I only got one serving of fruits and veggies (well, I did eat 4 olives too - if that counts as a serving of veggies).

Still going strong
Today I came within my calorie range again. I had 4 servings of fruits and vegetables. I did 50 minutes on the gazelle today. The fast food from yesterday is still sitting hard in my stomach today. Yuck. I got myself to do another 15 minute... Read more
Fast foods and exercise
Today I had Burger King. I'm not used to eating fast foods anymore, so it sat in my stomach like a lead balloon. I doubt I'll be going to a fast food place again any time soon. It wasn't even satisfying, it felt like empty calories. Even with... Read more
Strength training finally
I finally got my strength training in today. I did 15 minutes of strength training, 30 minutes on the gazelle, and 5 minutes of pilates. I had 4 servings of fruits and vegetables, and 9 glasses of water. I'm now 12 days into the month, and I ... Read more
Another good day
Today we had our headlights on in remembrance of those who passed away in the tragedy of September 11th. As far as my nutrition and exercise goes, today was another good day. I came within my calorie range, I got 5 servings of fruits and veget... Read more
