Friday, September 07, 2012      2 comments

A recap of my Sept goals: 1. To weigh 230 by Oct. 3 (I am doing Wed. weigh-ins, but I did not get a very accurate weigh-in this week due to bloating, etc. so if this ends up being more than the ~9 lb that I expect, I may modify this by addi... Read more

Stop grinning at me!

The day started off fine. I woke up, exercised, and I was feeling great! But then I went over to the scale. I was very optimistic about the weigh in this morning because yesterday the skirt I was wearing fit so nicely - I hadn't put it on sinc... Read more

I did it!! I managed to leave food on my plate and walk away peacefully!! At my lunch meeting today, I ate most of the salad, all of the Brussels sprouts (about the only veggie that I don't love) and left more than half of the beef strogo... Read more

Day 1 of September ended on a better note than it began! I made it to bed early last night and so far today has been a much better. I woke up on time, turned on the coffee and exercised for twenty minutes to start off the day! Read more

A little growth in Self-Knowledge (Probably TMI for the men in the audience. . .)

Yesterday evening my body revealed to me why it was so suddenly feeling depleted of energy. *That* time of the month had arrived and taken my motivation hostage. Pushing myself to do some exercise yesterday helped to restore both my energy and... Read more

This morning I commented on a SparkFriend's feed: "If you just do it, even if you don't feel like it, you may discover energy you didn't know that you had!!" As luck would have it, this afternoon, I didn't feel like exercising... at all, motiva... Read more

Found this on my desk this morning : "Take Time" Take time to work - It is the price of success. Take time to think - It is the source of power. Take time to play - It is the secret of perpetual youth. Take time to be friendly ... Read more
