I am so frustrated with myself. First off I haven't tracked my food in five days! Ridiculous. I use to come home and religiously track everything I ate. Now I constantly forget. What's worse is I am starting to fall back into old eating habits b... Read more

Still struggling to get back on track

Sunday, October 21, 2012      4 comments

Alrighty my job is really getting me off track in a very distracting way. It so bad that I am not sleeping at night thinking about problems coming on Monday morning. I am really struggling to get my thoughts headed back in the right direction on... Read more

Argh, been out of the saddle for a few days

Tuesday, October 16, 2012      2 comments

Well the past few days are not the brightest moments of my weight loss journey. It's not that I overate significantly or didn't walk my daily route (Day 31 of my streak :) ). I just didn't keep myself in mind. I didn't track my food. I wasn't mi... Read more

Lost my pedometer :(

Wednesday, October 10, 2012      2 comments

I am really disappointed. I took my daily walk and my pedometer went missing somewhere along the way. I retraced my steps but someone must have picked it up or something. Argh. I was starting to do really well tracking my steps. On a happy... Read more

I'm getting faster :)

Thursday, October 04, 2012      4 comments

I started walking everyday about two and half weeks ago. It's made a significant difference in my weight loss journey AND I am getting faster each week. When I started I could only walk a mile in 19 to 20 minutes. Yesterday I made it in 16.5 min... Read more

I finally watched the scale move!

Monday, October 01, 2012      3 comments

It's official. I've actually lost two pounds. I started walking about two weeks ago in addition to keeping a food journal and the scale actually gave "weight" this time around. I am very content right now. That warm type of content that starts w... Read more

Walking everyday is really paying off

Tuesday, September 25, 2012      4 comments

My legs are stronger. I breathe easier. And I just walk for an hour with a friend around the park without losing a step! I am going in the right direction this time and I am really excited about it!... Read more

I actually completed my fitness goal for the week!

Saturday, September 22, 2012      2 comments

Hot Damn! Granted my goal for the week was to simply take a 10 minute walk everyday but i did it. I stayed committed throughout this heinous week. I normally fall off the wagon when disaster strikes, except this time! It's probably silly to smil... Read more

Day 5 and all hell broke loose in my life

Thursday, September 20, 2012      1 comments

Thus far 96 walking minutes since Sunday logged. Only two more days and I will complete my challenge. Honestly if it weren't for the cheering on of anonymous SparkPeople I would have stopped. See, I always get discouraged when other parts of my ... Read more

Day 3 of the daily 10 min walking challenge

Tuesday, September 18, 2012      3 comments

Well thus far Day 1 turned from walking into raking challenge and Day 2 I got soaked. On Sunday I got twitch to just start raking and it turned into my exercise for the day. Yesterday I started walking and got caught mid route in a rain storm. W... Read more

Alright, I can do a daily 10min walking challenge

Sunday, September 16, 2012      4 comments

Exercise is really difficult for me because of recurring injuries in my feet and ankles. I am usually anemic as well so my muscles tire rather easily during exercise. Despite those issues I am going to try walking 10 minutes everyday for a week,... Read more

Angry at myself for getting so heavy

Thursday, September 13, 2012      6 comments

I logically know why I got heavy in the first place. Poor understanding of nutrition, a crippling abusive relationship, major financial loss, chronic health issues and poor living circumstances created a huge crater in my life. By the way, I'm o... Read more

How the hell do people plan?!

Tuesday, September 11, 2012      1 comments

For some reason my protein intake is always sub par. Never fails. Not only that but I am missing other important nutrients like potassium and magnesium in my diet. My sporadic, ill conceived eating habits are really catching up to me. After star... Read more

"Motivationally" Challenged

Sunday, September 09, 2012      4 comments

I am motivationally challenged. Over the past two weeks since starting a weight loss medication I consistently avoid building the rest of my weight loss plan. Although I am starting to see why. I am reading the Power of Habit right now and it's ... Read more

My doctor prescibed a weight loss drug for me. The reason being I have difficulty exercising because of injuries and I am on a medication with a side effect of weight gain. I am not entirely sure how I feel about pills to counteract pills, but i... Read more
