Where did July go?
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!
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!
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 Mini Challenge
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
I MUST Move!!
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
Happy May! Challenge Day 1
I love May! It's finally spring, the flowers are blooming, the trees are flowering, my birthday is in 2 weeks, and it always seems like a new beginning. That's how I'm going to take a look at my getting healthy process!
I was watching "Op... Read more
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
I just had the best breakfast!
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
Keep on keepin' on!
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 have been doing well, staying within my calorie range, drinking my water, and working out for 2 days now. My biggest problem is keeping the streak alive. I think I need to give myself small rewards for keeping the streaks alive, not just whe... Read more
NOT back on track....
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
Back on Track!
So, I'm home from vacation and I didn't gain any weight! Shocking but true!! I joined a gym before I left, so I am READY TO DO THIS!! I saw myself in a bathing suit and I want to look better the next time around!!

Joining a Gym....AGAIN!
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....
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
