I am doing the run a 5K for rookies program. Ick. It is hard. I don't like running. Need to run today and I am dreading it. However, it got me thinking. In so many areas of my life, I give up because it is too hard. I wear clothes that are too b... Read more

This last week or so has not been good. I just lost my motivation, broke my streaks...sigh. I felt really blue for some reason. And, worse, I just wanted to eat. Even worse, I had no desire to keep myself from eating. I'm ashamed to say that I w... Read more

Speaking of fooling myself. Despite best intentions and a well laid plan for yesterday's dinner, I saw my son eating chips and salsa which made me want chips and salsa so bad. So, I decided in all of my infinite wisdom to "treat myself" to some ... Read more

oh Oreos. How can something so delicious be so bad? So packed full of calories. So wonderfully addictive and almost impossible to stop eating. Sigh. If life were fair Oreos would be a vegetable. Life is not fair. Must continue on somehow. I've b... Read more

Well, now I'm in stage 2. I'm really glad I started stage 1 over again. It felt kind of silly at the time, but it gave me the chance to start over and reassess. I definitely see patterns that are causing me not to lose weight. The obvious one is... Read more

I'm so relieved and thankful. My daughter's surgery is over and went well. We are home! She is still in pain, obviously, but she is a trooper and is holding up really well and still trying to smile at everyone. She is the smiliest, happiest litt... Read more

I had a hard time sleeping last night. So I'm up a little earlier than usual. I also had really weird, kind of dark and scary, dreams. The kind where you wake and up and feel very, very glad that they were just dreams. Maybe that's why I didn't ... Read more

Didn't have the best day today, food wise, but I know it is just one day and it doesn't have to mean more than that. Also know I could have done worse (and wanted to do worse). So I feel pretty good. I did get my 10 minutes of exercise in. Yay! ... Read more

Okay, so right now I am reading The Spark for the first time. I am really just at the beginning of the book, but I do feel like it is already getting me more motivated. What an amazing story. It has also made me realize that I need to reevaluate... Read more
Getting Better
Monday, June 27, 2011      1 comments

Sometimes I wonder if there is a part of me that does not want to lose weight. I have been thinking about this for weeks now. Of course, my mind is saying, "Of course I want to lose weight!" But then I think about how every time a weekend rolls ... Read more

Aaahhh...I'm feeling good today. I'm not sure really what has helped. I did my yoga today and I'm sure that helped. The yoga (especially relaxation yoga) is always the first thing to go when I get busy, but I decided that I was going to make ... Read more
Stressed Out

Today was stressful. i guess it is good that I am doing this stress challenge or I wouldn't be taking the time to write, which will probably make me feel better in the end. I should start off by saying that Sunday I had a hot stone massage whi... Read more
Weekend Stress
Saturday, July 24, 2010      2 comments

Okay, so I had a lot of stress starting on Friday and, unfortunately, I can't say that I handled it very well. I got up early on Friday with the intention of getting my work done as soon as possible because I had plans in the evening that I was... Read more
Not Enough Time
Thursday, July 22, 2010      2 comments

I know that I'm not the first person to say this, but I wish there was more time in the day. There is too much to do and just not enough time. I feel stressed by the amount of things that are planned & that I still need to do. Now that I am t... Read more
The Glass IS Half Full
Wednesday, July 21, 2010      4 comments

I was thinking the other day on a walk how I tend to think of the world as a hostile place. I assume that people do not wish me well or are laughing or making fun of me. I am always suspicious of people's motives. For instance, I'm VERY self-... Read more
