Day 6 & 7
Happy 4th of July!
I forgot to blog last night. But all is well. Hanging in there.
1. Hug my daughter, who will hopefully be home by then.
2. Keep tracking.
3. Keep exercising.... Read more
Not an all together successful day, but not too bad either.
I had a terrible headache for most of the day, then had to go to another baseball game this afternoon, so I didn't get much of anything done. I went a little bit over on my calorie... Read more
Hot. Tired. Cranky. Sore.
Going to bed early. Hope to feel better tomorrow.
1. Track everything I eat.
2. Get end of the month reports done.
3. Some sort of exercise. Maybe not soo intense considering how much my body hurts!

Day 3 already!
So far, so good.
I just don't know why I ever stopped. This really isn't that hard. It is just about being deliberate about what you do and eat.
Tomorrow will be a test. I am going to my son's baseball tournament out of town. I am tak... Read more
Day 2 went well! Still dealing with hunger, but I have had several spaced out healthy snacks that have gotten me through.
I did not do the 15 min strength training that I had planned to do, but I did go to the gym and swim for 30 min! It fe... Read more
Well, Day 1 went pretty well. I did the things I said I would. I stayed within my calories. I'm hungry for sure, but it is not unbearable. I still have an orange to eat yet tonight.
So, for tomorrow, I will:
1. Do a 15 min. strength w... Read more
Action Items for Tomorrow
As part of my getting back on the wagon, I am going to do nightly check-ins with goals for the next day. I can do AT LEAST 3 things a day that will be healthy for ME. Feel free to block me or unfriend me or whatever if all these blog posts get a... Read more
Can I do this AGAIN?
My status says, "I'm back." That was 170 days ago.
Getting off track sure is a slippery slope. I've slipped a long way in the 170+ days. But I know I felt better, physically and emotionally, when I was taking care of myself, working out, e... Read more
I HAVE to get back on track.
I WANT to get back on track.
I WILL get back on track.
These last few weeks have been kind of screwy for me. I spent the summer really focusing on me and what I wanted/needed. It was hard. It was good.... Read more
An "All or Nothing" Attitude
My life changed the day I rediscovered SparkPeople. All of a sudden I had the strength, the determination, the support, and the knowledge to change my lifestyle. And I have done great! It really hasn't even seemed that hard.
But I realized... Read more
A "bump" in the road...
Well it's actually on my neck. Monday morning I woke up with what I thought was a bug bite or something on my neck. It was kinda itchy, so I scratched it. By Monday afternoon, the whole side of my neck was swollen and hard and red and really hur... Read more
Being "deliberate" is setting me free...
I think it is kind of ironic that a word that should mean "keep from being free" is what is allowing me a new freedom that I have never had before. Being deliberate about what I eat, when I eat, how much I eat, when I work out, what exercises I ... Read more
Unorthodox Use of Weight Tracker
OK. If anyone has noticed, I have entered a one pound loss two days in a row.
I know I am supposed to only track once a week, but...
This is what I am doing and it seems to be working for me: I weigh everyday. If the scale shows a l... Read more
Upping My Calories?
I have been tracking and exercising faithfully, drinking my water & green tea (4 days without diet coke!), and doing everything I can to make this work. The one thing I haven't done is to follow the recommended calorie range -- I lowered it (wit... Read more
