Frustrations, Turkey Day
I keep slipping, and it's starting to get frustrating! But, I keep getting back up, which you all continue to kindly remind me is a good thing! And counts as progress. I just have to remember...baby steps, and it's not an all or nothing deal. Ee... Read more
What a weekend. Ugh.
This weekend was...good, bad, and lesson-teaching all in one! Saturday, I realized I hadn't bought food for lunches. Doh! So my husband said let's go to Publix and see what's in the deli. I'm thinking, oh, great, fried chieken! Yum, but not the ... Read more
Chug a lug!
I'm just chugging along this week, focused on drinking my water. I feel so much less pressure, focusing on just my water. I've been doing great on my calorie ranges, too, surprisingly. So far every day but Sunday I've stayed in the range. Not on... Read more
learning lessons. the hard way.
I always learn things the hard way. I try to DO things the easiest, smartest way possible. But learning? Nah, I'd like to do it as hard as possible, please! With an extra-large side of difficulty, thank you!
It's been pounded in my head countl... Read more
Let's be honest for a minute.
I am a stinking yoyo here. One day, I eat great, the next, and the next, and the next, I eat so so, and then the weekend comes. And all bets are off. This weekend, I actually got physically sick from eating fast food - I wasn't really hungry, bu... Read more
Finding faith in myself
I've never really had much confidence. I never thought I could do anything right, and I never thought of myself as someone with a lot of willpower. As an adult, I find those thoughts still creep up on me. When it comes to weightloss, these thou... Read more
What I Caught Myself Doing
When I was younger, I would sneak treats up to my room after school. I'd hide cookies, twinkies, hostess cakes under my shirt and run up the stairs with my treasure. At the time, it was no biggie - I got a lot of exercise, and was skinny. So muc... Read more
Confession Time & WooHoo Wednesday
I haven't posted a blog entry in so long because I don't know what to say. I messed up last week, and went over my calories too many times. I post my blogs in the afternoon, so even though I planned accordingly, I usually overate when I got home... Read more
This week has been very good so far. I walked the flea market, walked the dog, and did the Wii Sunday. Monday rested, Tuesday 10 minutes strength with SP video, and Wednesday walked the dog and Wii. Wednesday got cut short since the roofer final... Read more
Where I am
I'm realizing, slowly, that this extra weight is not just going to quickly melt off. It is going to be harder this time, and take longer. I'm ok with that, now that I have realized it. I can't burn as many calories as the people who are losing 1... Read more
Kick in the booty!
So today, for one of my team's challenges, I weighed, measured and took pictures. I even posted them! I must be brave. Or stupid. ;) It was just the kick I needed, though. I found that I have lost no weight this last week, and that my measuremen... Read more
Why I am not disappointed
I am only human. I make human mistakes. I slip, I fall, and it's ok.
Here's how I see it : Last night, I overate. I ate until I felt sick after I sat back. But I'm not disappointed in myself, I'm not angry, and I'm not planning on figuring out... Read more
My Weirdness Factor
I'm a fairly quiet person, keep to myself, don't talk much, eat lunch at my desk with a good book. So already people think I'm a little strange ;) Now that I'm on SP and trying to get healthier, I think my weirdness factor has gone up QUITE a fe... Read more
Finding Accountability in Unexpected Places
I don't really have a work out buddy, or someone to support me through this. Sure, the husband is supportive, and tries, but he can't tell me no, or ask if I really want that bowl of ice cream. He does his best, but I can't really blame him. I a... Read more
I thought I was doing well with what I was eating, but I'm finding it difficult to stay in my calorie range. How did I do this before I feel off the wagon? It seemed so much easier then.
I've got some good ideas, now I just have to start impl... Read more
