Ever have those days where you just hate everyone?

Tuesday, March 15, 2011      4 comments

Yeah, I'm having one of those days. There is a level of frustration at work that can't even be adequately described here. I feel angry and frustrated and helpless all at the same time. Surprisingly, my "getaway daydream" involves standing up,... Read more

Week 2 Weigh In

Monday, March 14, 2011      2 comments

Well, then. I guess yesterday didn't destroy all my efforts from the entire proceeding week. Thank goodness. Weighed in this morning and it was a bit dismal. Overall, our team took a hit. A couple of the girls had a rough week and gained a l... Read more

Birthday Party

Sunday, March 13, 2011      2 comments

Wow. So, what can I say? It was my first screw up day in the 3 weeks I've been doing this. We had a birthday party for my 3 year old. I had even planned out exactly what I would be eating to try to keep on track, calorie-wise. And, once every... Read more

I feel like crap. Well, if I'm down and out physically...I think I'll do something worthwhile in the time that I'm not sleeping. Got "The Spark" in the mail yesterday and I'm so excited to read it!!! I'll let you know how it goes. P.S. He... Read more

Sad, Sick, Sticking With It

Friday, March 11, 2011      4 comments

Rough, rough day. Recently found out a good friend has very aggressive stomach cancer. He's been so positive and wonderful through the whole ordeal, but today's journal entry was all about how he is going to start chemo next Thursday. He said... Read more

"It is not always possible to know what one has learned, or when the dawning will arrive. You will continue to shift, sift, to shake out and double back. The synthesis that finally occurs can be in the most unexpected place and the most unexpe... Read more

Ugh. Today was just rough. I went in to work at 7:30am and didn't leave that office til 6:45pm. It's only Wednesday and I already have 5.5 hours of overtime logged this week! I did OK for breakfast and lunch. But dinner time came around and ... Read more

Challenging Day - But I Overcame!

Tuesday, March 08, 2011      1 comments

Today was pretty challenging for me health-wise. Things started off well. I had a healthy breakfast of oatmeal. Then, a healthy lunch (chicken and brown rice and peas) that I had packed using last night's leftovers. My afternoon snack was cel... Read more

Biggest Loser Weigh-In!

Monday, March 07, 2011      2 comments

So, my Biggest Loser team at work weighed in today after one week of the program. Two of the girls on our team lost 6 lbs this week! That is AMAZING and I am SO happy for them! I and one other team member each lost 2 lbs this week. Not necessa... Read more

Last night's roller derby bouts were SO exciting!!! It was really tough to stay neutral (as a scorekeeper) as our teams were out there blowing the other team away and, in the process, moving up two places in the rankings! This is such a huge dea... Read more

Super Saturday!

Saturday, March 05, 2011      3 comments

Sleeping in was heaven this morning! And slowly waking up is my idea of heaven. Pretty soon, though, I'm going to get moving and make a nice healthy and delicious lunch. Then, find a fun workout on Free On Demand. Spend some time with my litt... Read more

Pretty Complete Day

Friday, March 04, 2011      2 comments

Today has been "complete" in the sense that I've been all over the place with this new healthy lifestyle I've adopted. What I mean is...I struggled with wanting to eat too much, but was able to control myself and stay within calorie limits. I ... Read more

Reality Check

Thursday, March 03, 2011      1 comments

So, all this time, I've been thinking that I need to lose 80 lbs., which is a lot. Tonight I was working on adding some tweaks to my Spark Page and typed in the standard "I want to lose 80 lbs." goal. Once I had everything the way I wanted it,... Read more

Busy busy time for snacking

Thursday, March 03, 2011      1 comments

Don't you just LOVE a busy day that is so crazy, you don't even have a chance to THINK about food? Aside from the stress, I actually do like it. What are your thoughts? Easier to eat healthy when you're busy? Or tougher (because you eat ... Read more

Feeling Good...

Wednesday, March 02, 2011      2 comments

It's a great day today. I can't even say what it is that makes it a great day...I just feel great. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that I slept pretty well last night. Plus, when I went to the restroom today, I happened to glance ... Read more
