Last week, I was challenged to work out an additional 30 minutes, on top of my 30 planned minutes. I know you're all dying to know how I did! Hehehehe!
Having lupus, even the simplest workouts can sometimes be a challenge. That's why I'm tryi... Read more
New Gear, and a Challenge!
I got some new gear this weekend. I love to walk the dogs, (seperately, they don't do well together!) so I got the larger dog a new harness, and will give the one that was too small for him to the smaller dog. Now they both have on! I'm planning... Read more
January 2011 Goals
I said I would do it, so now I have to. I'm so glad I post things here for the world to see, it really keeps me accountable!
Thanks to everyone who responded to my last post, with all the advice and encouragement. Im really excited about this ... Read more
I'm not very good at setting goals. Or keeping them. I ultimately end up forgetting about them, or I make them way to ridiculous to try and keep (like going from no exercise to exercising 4x/week)
So, I'm starting the new year with new goals.... Read more
The past two days I've done horribly with my eating. And I'm paying for it by feeling like pooh :( Going back through my old posts, and remembering how things have been, I see I'm being a yo-yo a lot. Even though I've given up the all or nothing... Read more
Time off, time away..
For some reason, I just can't spend enough time on SP when I'm off work. I don't mean I'm addicted - I mean I can't spend enough time, meaning the more time I spend here the better I do, the better I mentally feel about this process. I've got to... Read more
Weekends, why can you not be like weekdays?
Weekdays seem so easy for me. I eat healthy, and most days I even have a lot of trouble meeting my calorie ranges. (Except for days when we do pizza...those are tough!) I even got my weekly workout in this Monday. I've been doing great on my wat... Read more
I can't believe I keep falling into old habits. I make plans, I have goals, I think about things, and then I just...don't follow through. The weekdays are so much easier for me, but as soon as Friday night hits I completely bomb. Everything I w... Read more
Learning & Planning
I like to think I am continuing to learn, to expand my knowledge. Not just on weight loss and fitness, but all aspects of life. I don't want my brain to turn to mush. Ha!
Today, I am wearing a fitted outfit. Pants that are a little snug (but f... Read more
Sometimes, I'm a slow learner. Sometimes, I need to take it piece by miniscule piece. So the past two-three weeks I've been focusing on getting more water in me. I've been doing surprisingly well! So as a reward, I'm on the hunt for a new, aweso... Read more
The Learning Never Ends. Good thing!
Ok, I had my day of pouting and grumping over my weight gain. Today, I'm trying to be more reflective and see why I gained he weight.
Plus, I've got a gameplan now. I realize that trying to eat solely from the pantry, to save money, isn't alw... Read more
Wait, cookies and donuts = weight gain? Oh. Oops.
So, last week was rough. In all kinds of ways - emotionally, physically, financially. Ugh. So glad it's over! But, I let my emotions get the best of me, again. And the prednisone cravings. After the pizza-cookies-donuts fiasco, I went to a secon... Read more
Struggling, Fights, Progress?
Last night, I decided to go to the grocery store. We were down to either having fish -again- or pb&j with french fries. I know the husband was tired of having no food and my trying to eat from the pantry only, so I asked him if he wanted to meet... Read more
Crazy Days, Still Learning!
I got a call at work yesterday from a very upset husband. On his was to work, he stopped by a drugstore, where a stranger was in trouble. Husband tried to save his life using training he had received at work, and the stranger did not make it. Ne... Read more
SP, How I've missed you!
I was so afraid I would totally fail over Thanksgiving without SP! Surprisingly, I did quite well. I made the best choices I could with the options I had, and always had a bottle of water with me. I got some strange looks for that one, but it wo... Read more
