Pick yourself up and finish what you started
Pick yourself up and finish what you started.
I saw this phrase on a poster in the Biggest Loser gym watching the Biggest Loser. I wrote this down on a little post-it, and pasted it to my bathroom mirror. At first, having it up there made me... Read more
The Cold VS Streak : Day 13
So I caught a cold Monday night. And why not? It was just a few short weeks ago I couldn’t stop vomiting for a day. I don’t need a break from being sick, I’ll just make a career out of it. Sure! It sure feels that way, anyway.
The difference i... Read more
Notes to myself.
Note number one. Stop being such a critic. I know you feel bad that you didn’t do a Wii workout yesterday. But it’s ok, you wanted to at minimum do your PT exercises and you did them. Granted, they were scaled way back, since you don’t have the ... Read more
When the thrill is gone
I’m very happy and content with where things are at the moment. I’m staying in my calorie range for the most part, and watching what I eat. I’m eating good foods, so even when I go over I’m ok with it. I’m not binging or overeating or filling u... Read more
8 Days down! (picture included!)
I am exhausted after a full day.
I woke up feeling a little sore and achy, so I've been doing some stretches throughout the day. It's a good kind of sore and achy, because I know it means I've been doing some serious work. It's just different ... Read more
I did it! 95% Complete.
I was so excited to be successful this weekend, and as I type this Sunday morning, I am happy to say I have done very well so far. Here is how it has gone so far.
Saturday morning, I woke up and took a shower, got ready for the fence guy to c... Read more
Ah crap. It’s here.
Every weekend, I dread. I know what’s coming, and I have yet learned the skills to fight it off. I have all the tools to learn the skills, I guess I just need more practice to implement them.
This weekend, though, I’m full of hope and excite... Read more
Wait, is this, could this be, muscle?
I am such a weakling. I’m not proud of it, but I readily admit it. Years at a desk job and not much activity have really done me no good. I will take the blame, though, I made bad choices and ended up as a real, true weakling.
But lately, I’ve... Read more
Halfway through this week!
Physical therapy yesterday went so-so. I went, encouraged by me spark friends. (Thanks guys!) I got my own TENS unit, which does TENS for pain and the muscle stimulation I’’m currently using for my knees. I’m supposed to go again tomorrow, my la... Read more
After yesterday, I’m finally feeling like I can do this again. I think I lost sight of that somewhere. Although I put on a brave face and talked the talk, I was really just trying to convince myself that I could be successful. I often find myse... Read more
Reaching out: I need help, advice, support!!
Weekends are killer for me. Ok, that’s not exactly precise enough. It’s not just weekends, it’s any time spent at home. I don’t know what it is, but when I’m at home, I binge more often, I skip exercises, I feel overall icky and unhealthy, and ... Read more
Where I've been, where I'm going
Last week, I woke up in the middle of the night and started vomiting. I continued to do so for almost 12 hours. I ended up in the ER, getting fluids and antinausea medicine. I’m feeling better now, and I’m trying to slowly get back on track. M... Read more
Feeling like I’m going to bust! AKA the belly post
I feel so big right now. And I don’t necessarily mean fat, although I do feel extra chunky today. I look it as well. Yes, I really do, I swear it’s not me being extra judgmental; my clothes are stretched to the max. Anyway, I’m feeling extra f... Read more
Struggling, and my lack of progress
I’ve been struggling, and I found myself slacking on Spark and putting all of my energy into work, planning a ‘staycation’, and trying to cut our grocery budget every which way. I got overwhelmed, taking on so much at once, and trying to fix ev... Read more
