Where did July go?

Sunday, July 31, 2011      1 comments

I just read my last blog, which was written the end of June. I had all these great plans for getting back on track in July. Now it's the end of July and I'm at the same place. Some realizations: 1. I am paying $39.95 per month for Weight... Read more

It's a Start!

Monday, June 27, 2011      2 comments

I read this article on re-motivating yourself. The first week's goal is to track your food, don't beat yourself up, and to start exercising, but don't go crazy (aim for 10 -20 minutes a day, just try to be consistent). I just came back from a ... Read more

Here I Go Again!

Monday, June 13, 2011      2 comments

Very busy week at work; which would usually cause me to make not healthy choices, drive through McDonalds, etc. Yesterday I planned my week and made lunch for the whole week. I know that on Friday I'll be having pizza for lunch and probably wi... Read more

My favorite play is either Les Miserables or West Side Story. West Side Story is showing in Boston the end of the month. I am dying to see it (I have seen the movie a gazzillion times, but never the play since we put it on my senior year in h... Read more

Okay, I've danced around this long enough (and again, and again, and again!). I have GOT to start exercising on a regular basis! I do okay for a couple of days then come up with a million excuses. (This was even the topic at last week's WW me... Read more

If you keep doing what you've been doing....

There's a quote somewhere that says, "Stupidity (I don't think that's the actual word they use, but something like it) is doing what you've always done and expecting a different outcomeThat's exactly what I've been doing with my food. I always ... Read more

The Blahs

Wednesday, April 27, 2011      5 comments

I am in a rut. I commute 100 miles a day, although I like my job most of the time. With gas prices where they are, I'm thinking I might look for something closer to home. I cannot seem to break through the 300 lb mark. I get close; then I s... Read more

Sunday, in an effort to refocus, I re-read the All You magazine that was the Sparkpeople edition. I made one of their breakfast suggestions, a waffle with 1 tablespoon of peanut butter and 1 tablespoon of reduced calorie syrup. It was soooo go... Read more

So I've been on a streak, more or less, for 8 days! I am still not loving working out, but I've resigned myself that it's a necessary evil. (I still don't believe I'll ever be one of those "I Love To Exercise" people!) Today I went to a... Read more

Two Day Streak

I am so frustrated with myself. Eat less, move more, lose weight. How tough can it be??? As we all know, it's incredibly tough!! I know I need to exercise; I joined a gym. I was going to go to water aerobics at 8:45 yesterday morning, then ... Read more

My gym membership expired in December and I didn't re-sign. I thought I'd do it on my own. Surprise, surprise; I'm not doing it on my own!! I went on-line and checked out 6 health clubs in my area. I'm going to visit them tomorrow and get a ... Read more

Just When I Think I've Got It Figured Out....

Thursday, February 10, 2011      4 comments

So yesterday, I got up, ate a healthy breakfast, did cardio, and was feeling oh so virtuous!! I got to work with my pre-prepared healthy lunch, and I had made healthy plans for dinner as well. Then I received the evil e-mail message: Girl Sco... Read more
