The Good and the Bad

Monday, November 12, 2012      3 comments

Weighed in tonight - was WAY better than I thought. I am now down under 250, which was a goal for me. One I didn't share with anyone because not a lot of people know what weight I started this journey at. That was the good. The bad? I ... Read more

Sunday Morning

After getting roughly 2.5 hours of sleep Friday night, I was absolutely exhausted when we got home last night. I went to bed at 6:30! At midnight I woke up, looked at the clock and thought "Nope, not getting up yet." Next thing I knew it was ... Read more

Had an inservice at work today that started at noon. About halfway through I realized I hadn't eaten anything all day. Not impressed. When I went to work out, I was dragging on the treadmill. I really need to start working some breakfast int... Read more

I hate the Spark People trivia. Hate it. I do it everyday and every single day it irritates me. Went to McDonalds today after I picked hubby up from work on my way to the wrestling meet. Past Order: 10 pieces Chicken McNuggets, Large Fri... Read more

Pop Music Blah

Thursday, November 08, 2012      4 comments

Today's Insider took me to a survey to choose my top ten workout songs for 2012. Unfortunately, all of these songs appeared to be pop music. I don't listen to pop music. How about a little variety Spark People? Would it have killed you to pu... Read more

Worked second shift yesterday, first shift today. Needless to say I am exhausted! Was going to go to the gym after work but I realized I wouldn't be able to make it to my son's wrestling meet if I did. Tomorrow night it is! Good night!... Read more

Schedule Madness

Monday, November 05, 2012      0 comments
