Day 34 - Ten Pound mini-goal met

Saturday, March 28, 2015      1 comments

Woo hoo! I'm officially down 10 lbs as of my "official" weigh in this morning. I'm excited that last week's gain did seem to mostly be bloat. I also passed my initial military weigh in yesterday, so that was another success. It wasn't the of... Read more

Day 27 - Ten Miler conquered!

Saturday, March 21, 2015      0 comments

This week had been filled with more downs than ups, which is partly why I hadn't been writing. My rash has been coming back with a vengeance (dr appointment on Tuesday) and my weight had been steadily going up. I knew I was eating a bit more (... Read more

Day 19 - Not much to write

Friday, March 13, 2015      1 comments

Even though I haven't been writing in my blog, I've been exercising every day and tracking my food... so I'm proud of myself for that. I'll have to go look, but I'm pretty sure I'm close to my highest streak of consistently logging in and track... Read more

Day 16 - ran outside

Tuesday, March 10, 2015      1 comments

I ran outside this morning for the first time in months. It was cooler than I hoped it would be, but I really shouldn't complain since it was still a ton warmer than it's been! There were only a few places I had to side step the few remaining ... Read more

Day 15 - Actually day 2,169

Monday, March 09, 2015      1 comments

I was looking around on my SparkPage and saw the place where it said I have been a member since April 1, 2009. I was curious because I've seen others on here track their days as members - and this means I have been a member for 2,169 days! And... Read more

Day 12 - First night back working out

Friday, March 06, 2015      1 comments

I worked out for the first time in about a week today, after being sick. I did 45 minutes on our elliptical. I get really bored on the elliptical, but it's what we have here at home. I don't understand how it works though. I was on it for 45... Read more

Day 10 - Been down with the flu

Wednesday, March 04, 2015      1 comments

I've been sick all week with the flu. I was diagnosed Friday night, and then also went to the ER Saturday thanks to having the rash up onto my neck, and worse on other parts of my body. They finally gave me some oral steroids which is the firs... Read more

Day 3 - not as good today

Wednesday, February 25, 2015      1 comments

I caved today. I was running late and wasn't able to make my snacks for the day. So during the break in my morning class I went and bought that darn bag of popcorn. Then I had lunch with a friend I haven't seen in a while and got a california... Read more

Day 2 of my new start

Tuesday, February 24, 2015      0 comments

I've read many of the different posts and blogs on here related to the debate on how often you should weigh yourself. I can understand the pros and cons. For me, I weigh in just about every morning. For me, this is a way to see where I am, wh... Read more

Starting all over again...

Monday, February 23, 2015      1 comments

The song by "Brother IZ" (anyone familiar with Hawaiian music will hopefully know who I'm talking about) with that line is going through my head right now. Once again, I am sitting here in front of my computer trying to figure out what is going... Read more

It's that time of year again.

Thursday, March 20, 2014      1 comments

I've been thinking a lot lately about what I need to motivate me and stick with my eating and exercise habits. Others talk about rewards when they get to certain goals, but I have a hard time creating those rewards for myself. It is similar to... Read more

Day 10 of 100

Wednesday, January 22, 2014      0 comments

I made it through the weekend - and a long holiday weekend at that! I broke out the Wii Fit again and did at least 30 minutes of workout Saturday, Sunday and Monday nights. I think this will become my weekend routine, as my gym doesn't open un... Read more

100 Days of Fitness Goal

Wednesday, January 15, 2014      0 comments

Well, the holidays got me. It started at Thanksgiving when my parents visited. Keeping busy with showing them around and interacting with the family gave me the perfect excuse to not work out. And it just went downhill from there. I gained ... Read more

Third Time's a Charm!

Thursday, November 07, 2013      4 comments

I joined Sparkpeople about 4 or 5 years ago (I'm sure it tells me somewhere when I joined, but I can't remember right now). I wrote down what I ate, I worked out and I sort of peeked in message boards. Then I had to move overseas and sto... Read more
