Back "home" at Sparkpeople
I strayed and tried using another site for a couple of years but it lacked the intimacy that SP gives. So... Here's what I've been up to.
I'm still taking care of my dad. Since my last post here, I got engaged, got married, and my husband lives... Read more
Everyone in the world has been sick! Ahhh!
My daughter has been sick, my boyfriend, my dad, I've been living off of junk food. One night since my last entry I was in the emergency room with my dad and I LITERALLY HAD COOKIES FOR DINNER.
I have a kitchen stocked full of fruits and v... Read more
What I've been up to
Okay, my boyfriend is a TERRIBLE influence! He knows I'm trying to lose weight, so he comes over and... makes monkey bread. And he craves sweets all the time, so I end up making him cookies, and sharing. And then I make bread, and, and, and "one... Read more
My first cheat day
I had my first cheat day a few days ago. It was awesome. I don't think I ever even touched sugar, but I probably ate my weight in fried cornbread. Back on track yesterday, and today I can't wait until the girls nap so I can exercise. My boyfrien... Read more
Okay, so... Happy times.
I just read my last blog entry. It's crazy how defeated I was then. The yoga that I did that became a regular thing, and honestly the first few days I did it, I cried. My back was in agony. But, after a few days, my pain level decreased from a ... Read more
More of the same, blargh
Haven't been here in a while. My last post said that I had hurt my back. Well, it still isn't better, and frustration over me hurting my back every few months and it hurting for several months before getting better for a couple of months SINCE I... Read more
My scale is broken! And so am I! Haha
So, my daughter had a slumber party night before last and at some point during the night, I hurt my back even worse. I've been hurting pretty badly, so still no workouts. :/
I've stayed within my calorie limits though, except one day becaus... Read more
Still on track...
Except now I've hurt my back, so I'll be missing a few workouts again, in the interest of not aggravating my injury... and being able to walk tomorrow. Crap.
And I'm sure the weight loss is still going on, I'm still within my calorie limits... Read more
I'm not tracking today's calories... we're just going to pretend it didn't happen... moving on... LOL... Read more
Exactly one month later...
And I'm down 15 pounds! I'm EXCITED.
What was really awesome is I had an order to make for a friend's daughter's birthday. Two dozen cupcakes.. and I can't deny licking the beaters... but I didn't eat any of the extras! Woo, self control! ;... Read more
Gotten lazy with blogging, but I'm right on target still! Keeping up with workouts and diet, I'm losing a steady 2 lbs a week and I am down 14 lbs! I can't wait until this time next week, when it's 16 lbs!
Up until this point I hadn't noti... Read more
I'm still not back on track with my workouts, but I got myself some new shoes today which will help (my old ones were FALLING APART!) and I'm GETTING TO LEAVE THE HOUSE TONIGHT. The boyfriend and I are heading to Huddle House tonight with some o... Read more
4 workouts missed.
I'm so disappointed, but it's because I am so consumed with helping my dad. He needs constant, absolutely CONSTANT supervision right now. Before, he would sit on the porch when I did my workouts. Now, if he is sitting on the porch, I have to wat... Read more
So I've missed two workouts...
My dad fell and hurt his knee day before yesterday. He can barely get up and down, and walking is difficult... and he is a very active guy to be 75 and have Alzheimer's, so it's been ROUGH the past few days, especially considering I had work yes... Read more
Power 90 day 9 - done.
I always feel SO much better when I'm finished with my workout. It's a relief to get it done and out of the way! I get sooo bored with the Sweat 1/2 though. I mean, it's still challenging, it's not boring because it's easy by any means... I thin... Read more
